What To Expect

Your tour begins at Fisherman's Wharf, where you meet your local guide and board your minibus. Over the course of the day, you get a look at the city's diverse neighborhoods and geography, stopping at several locations to take beautiful photos and learn about the history of the city and current events through the eyes of a local.

You will travel through North Beach, also known as Little Italy, where sidewalk cafes line busy streets. You will get to see the markets and souvenir shops of Chinatown; visit the art and landmarks where the Summer of Love began in the Haight-Ashbury; see the 'Painted Ladies' victorians, known for their appearance in the 'Full House' intro; and get a glimpse of Pacific Heights, one of the city's most affluent neighborhoods where large homes have excellent views of San Francisco Bay (the house from 'Mrs. Doubtfire' is also here), among others.

The adventure then continues across the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods National Monument, where you have an hour to stroll through the majestic forest of ancient redwood trees. Then, visit the scenic, seaside town of Sausalito.

Your tour ends with return to your starting point at Fisherman's Wharf.

Super day
Nichola_L, Apr 2024
Great variety of experiences and a tour guide that added extra stops with any spare time. Would highly recommend.
Response from Host, May 2024
Thank you so much for your review! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the diverse experiences and appreciated our awesome guide. We're happy by your recommendation!
Great tour!
Tanja_P, Apr 2024
We loved the tour, great combination of city and nature, Muir Woods are a must! We had only 1 day for sightseeing, so this was perfect match. Sully was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable and gave us some great tips and recommendations - everything was so well thought through, including the music for Sausalito. Our sincere recommendation!
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank you for the kind words Tanja! We are happy you loved the tour. We do try to find the right balance of city and nature and sounds like it was just right for you and Sully did a great job all around. Hope to see you again, Dylan's Tours
Great day!
sherif_n, Apr 2024
This tour covered so much and Mark was a fantastic tour guide. He entertained us with so many stories — never a dull moment. Highly recommend this tour! (April is a good time to see the Golden Gate Bridge — there was no fog.)
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank for the nice words Sherif. Mark loves to share this great city with all of our guests. Glad you got a nice day with no fog at the Bridge. Come back soon, Dylan's Tours
So Interesting.
vilma_P, Apr 2024
Going to Muir woods. Our guide was great! Loved having lunch in Sausalito. It was so nice going over the Golden Gate Bridge and listening to some great music that the guide was playing for us.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank you for taking the time to review our tour! We appreciate it. Great music while driving over the Golden Gate Bridge sounds like a wonderful memory. Hope you will visit us again, Dylan's Tours
San Francisco neighbourhood tour, Golden Gate Muir Woods + Sausalito
Francesca_C, Mar 2024
Loved the whole trip, our guide Per was very imformative and helpful taking photos and giving advice where to eat etc. We had just arrived the day before from England so the tour around SF is a good way to get your bearings. Driving over the Golden Gate Bridge is a Life Experience as is going to Muir Woods. Definitely recommend this trip. 👌
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Hello Frances, thank you for taking the time to write a review of Dylan's Tours. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your tour with Per. He is such a helpful and informative guide that we cherish. Happy to hear you enjoyed the ride over the Golden Gate Bridge and the beauty of Muir Woods. We thank you for recommending us to others. Thanks, Patrick Manager Dylan's Tours
Awesome tour of the city & Muir Woods!
Kate_P, Mar 2024
We had so much fun on this tour. Mark gave a great overview of the city and its history before heading to Muir Woods. It was a perfect length. We would book again!
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Happy to hear you had an awesome time, Kate! Mark really loves sharing his knowledge of the city with our visitors. When you are ready to book again, we will be waiting for you. Thank you, Dylan's Tours
Great way to get to the woods with extras
kelsey_h, Mar 2024
Jeffery was great, fun, knowledgeable, the Muir Woods were amazing. Also learned about the history of San Fran
Muir woods was beautiful,...
Alexandra_W, Nov 2023
Muir woods was beautiful, there just wasn't enough time there. Not enough time at Sausalito either. It should have been a 6 hour trip, to give you plenty of time at both locations - they both deserve the time!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Alexandra, Thanks for booking with Dylan's Tours. We are happy to hear you had a great time in Muir Woods. We are sorry you felt there wasn't enough time inside the Muir Woods. Unfortunately ALL commercial tour companies are only allotted 90 minutes in the park. We appreciate you sharing your experience. Thanks, Ted
Quickly, quickly
FERRAN_M, Oct 2023
Marina District and Presidio Park, good Golden Gate Bridge, good Muir Woods, time given, pretty less than 1 hour Sausalito, unnecessary. Arrival, 35 minutes for lunch and see
Worth it
Jen_A, Aug 2023
This tour was a great way to see the city, learn its history, and get photos of some of the most iconic structures and visit to Muir Woods. If you can, get on Anthony’s bus, he made it fun and interesting.
Great drive through SF and to Muir Woods.
Tracy_A, Jul 2023
Our tour guide/driver (Jake) was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The SF stops were great and Muir Woods was fantastic. Really appreciated the water and snacks provided.
San Francisco must do!!
Selina_P, Jun 2023
Awesome tour. Sully was an excellent guide with a wealth of fun and interesting facts about San Francisco.
Having Fun
Stephen_P, May 2023
Getting an overview of san Francisco with a lot of history was great. The guide was fantastic! The Muir Woods experience was neat, and there was plenty of time to explore. Had a good lunch in a Thai restaurant.
See the City and See the Woods
Denise_R, May 2023
The weather was perfect for this outing. We got great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Muir Woods was refreshing and lunch in Sausalito was nice with outdoor seating and a view of the marina. Not too strenuous of a tour and appropriate for all ages. My sister and I really enjoyed getting out of the city and getting so fresh air and views that you don’t normally see. Our guide, Roger, was informative and entertaining. We enjoyed his commentary and appreciated his advice about getting around and suggestions for things to see and do during our stay. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Great tour with just the...
Latanya_R, Mar 2023
Great tour with just the right amount of hop-on, hop-off. Adam was very knowledgeable. I arrived late in an Uber from out of town, and the guides still made sure I joined the group.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hello and thanks for the nice review! Sounds like you were able to hit all the spots. This tour checks all the boxes for a great 1/2 day in the Bay Area. One cannot visit SF and not see some of the powerhouse Coastal Redwoods at Muir Woods and a lunch in the former art colony of Sausalito, with its views of SF is priceless. Having a great guide like Adam is the icing on the cake for any good tour. Good travels! Todd Spor Smith
Great tour!
Alan_N, Mar 2023
We enjoyed a lot! Will recommend to everyone! A lot of history, culture and beautiful places! And the guide was a really nice guy.
Meghan_s, Jan 2023
Cannot recommend this tour enough! Patrick was phenomenal. Sasaulito timing was a little rushed so if you want to be there for longer I wouldn’t recommend.
Awesome tour
Tijana_R, Jan 2023
This was the nicest tour I have attended. Sally was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, friendly and prepared. This was an awesome experience!
Very low stress and fun...
Amy_A, Jan 2023
Very low stress and fun way to see the main sites in San Francisco. The trip over the golden great was terrific and the leisurely hour plus walk through the woods, memorable. The guide was both quirky and professional, just the perfect combination.
Response from Host, Jan 2023

Best Day in the Bay Area
Peter_L, Dec 2022
We had an incredible day with Dylan’s Famous Tour! We got experience just about everything SAn Francisco and the Bay Area has to offer. From the city highlights, to walking in the woods with finishing off in the wine country. We had a great sit down lunch at the Girl and the Fig, and we visited a beautiful winery. This was hands down the best experience.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Hello Peter, thank you for taking the time to write a review of Dylan's Tours. It is great to hear you got to experience so much in just one day. Walking in the woods, seeing San Francisco, and visiting a beautiful winery is a great way to spend a day in Northern California. We are so glad you chose to spend it with Dylan's Tours. Please join us again in the future. Thanks, Patrick, Manager at Dylan's Tours
