Save time and focus on what you would like to see the most. This private SUV tour is driven and narrated by a Bay Area born owner-operator with almost a decade of professional tour experience. This day is a perfect mix of natural wonders and urban exploration. See the sights of San Francisco before and after a journey over the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods & Sausalito.
Our advantage is that bus & van tours are limited as to where they can drive in San Francisco. This comfortable, large SUV can access areas and neighborhoods where larger tours are prohibited. Don't miss out on the Crooked Lombard Street, Coit Tower, Painted Ladies of Alamo Square, Marina Green or the expensive Sea Cliff neighborhood.

Transportation is provided in an extended 2015 Ford Expedition EL XLT equipped with 4-wheel drive (just in case). This vehicle was selected for its size and 3rd row space which has 17% more leg room than other SUVs of its model year.

Coach buses over 35 ft are not advised on the steep, narrow, and winding road down to Muir Woods. You may request that your driver takes slow if you are sensitive to the road conditions near Mount Tamalpais. Your private SUV drops you off close to the forest entrance. Only rangers can guide inside Muir Woods so your driver will give you instructions before you set off to explore on your own. It takes about 45 minutes round trip to Cathedral Grove where you find the oldest trees in this grove. If you want to take a longer walk, the Hillside Trail may be open depending on conditions (60-75 minutes). 

Not included: $10 admission into Muir Woods (per person 16 years and older). This fee is not included to prevent overcharging of smaller groups under 7 people, National Park annual pass holders and families with children. This way you only pay for the entrance fees you need and some company/driver does not pocket your extra tickets.

After the woods you get free time in Sausalito to walk along the water, shop, dine or sip some wine before continuing the city tour in SF.
See both the popular sights and places travelers sometimes miss. Learn about the neighborhoods from a local's perspective. Have your camera ready to capture the sweeping views, classic Victorian architecture and quirkiness that causes some to leave their heart in San Francisco or wear flowers in their hair. With 8 up to 8 hours available between SF, Sausalito & Muir Woods, we can focus more on the areas that interest you most. Some of the places you may see while on tour are: China Town, Nob Hill, North Beach, Coit Tower, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Hyde St maritime ships, Ghirardelli Square, Lombard Street, Fort Mason, The Marina Green, Palace of Fine Arts, Billionaire's Row, The Presidio, Crissy Field, Fort Point, The Golden Gate Bridge, Baker Beach, Sea Cliff, Sutro Bath Ruins, The Cliff House, Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park, Haight Ashbury, Twin Peaks (weather permitting) Alamo Square, The Castro, Civic Center & Union Square.

Pickup is at your San Francisco hotel at 9am. Your driver will optimize the schedule based on the traffic patterns for your chosen day of the week. On weekends we will most likely head straight to Muir Woods before the crowds arrive. Weekdays we may see some of the city first before heading over the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods & Sausalito. Lunch is on your own and can take place when and where you choose. Your driver will have recommendations for each location. We normally finish up with seeing San Francisco's sights around 5pm.

Discover Golden Gate Park on this 2.5-hour Segway tour in San Francisco, geared for advanced riders. Glide past 8 miles (13 km) of vibrant gardens, historical monuments, and treasured museums while learning of its history from your guide. Explore the park’s eastern end, taking in sights such as the Lily Pond and Shakespeare Garden while listening to trivia and anecdotes about the area via audio headset. 

 

Start your Segway tour of Golden Gate Park at the Music Concourse, located behind the bandstand. This advanced tour, catered to a maximum of six participants with prior Segway riding experience, includes less time learning to ride to ensure more time touring the park. Test out your Segway to brush up on your skills, then snap on your headset and radio transmitter to hear your guide's commentary. Gloves, hats, and jackets are also provided, depending on the weather.

After this brief introduction, head out on a 2.5-hour route that covers roughly 8 miles with some challenging terrain along the eastern end of the 1,017-acre (411-hectare) Golden Gate Park. Glide past iconic landmarks and stop for pictures at unique monuments along the way. Learn the history of the barren sand dunes, dubbed the 'outside lands' by early San Francisco settlers, and hear how early designers transformed the area into the lush park modeled after Frederick Law Olmstead’s famous Central Park in New York City. 

Stop in front of the Japanese Tea Garden, Conservatory of Flowers, DeYoung Museum, and Academy of Sciences. See lesser-known sites such as the Lily Pond, Prayerbook Cross, and the Fern Grotto. Hear about the Summer of Love and former local bands such as the Grateful Dead, and look for blue herons, red-tailed hawks, and tropical parrots that inhabit the park.

Upon completion of the tour, you will be within easy walking distance of local shops and restaurants and close to public transit options easily connecting you to Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf.

When the sun goes down in San Francisco, a twinkling display of lights keeps the city glowing throughout the night. While a brisk stroll is one way to admire this nightly light show, why not cover more ground on a Segway tour of Chinatown, North Beach and the Embarcadero? It’s a rare opportunity to take this two-wheeler on the streets of some of San Francisco’s most famous neighborhoods after dark. Your guide keeps you, family and friends on track with fun trivia and facts about the sights you pass, and there are plenty of stops to take photos along the way.

Join a troupe of Segway riders on Beach Street, along Fisherman’s Wharf, to gear up for your evening ride with a 40-minute safety orientation. Along with a helmet and safety vest, you’ll get hooked up with a radio device so you don’t miss any of your guide’s commentary along the way. Once you feel comfortable on your two-wheeler, hit the streets to see Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero lit up at night. It’s a great way to see the city in a new light!

Depart from Beach Street to head up to North Beach, or what locals consider the city’s Little Italy. The streets are flanked by bustling Italian restaurants, with the scent of authentic warm dishes wafting from the doorways. Imagine the Beat poets and artists who once roamed the neighborhood as your guide shares history about the counterculture movement at Washington Square Park by Saints Peter and Paul Church.

Cruise over to nearby Chinatown, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Along the lantern-lit streets, peer into dim sum houses, admire temples and appreciate souvenirs that dangle from windows and spill over display tables. If you visit in mid-winter, expect to see festive decorations in honor of the Chinese New Year.

From Chinatown, head east toward the waterfront to take in the Bay Bridge, which appears to be dressed in tinsel; it’s actually a light sculpture known as Bay Lights. Continue along the Embarcadero past the Ferry Building to Fisherman’s Wharf for a look at the historic piers and harbors. Enjoy nighttime views of Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf before ending your Segway tour at the start point.

Your private SUV tour is driven and narrated by a Bay Area born owner-operator with almost a decade of professional tour experience. Private tours save time and provide a level of service not always available to bus & van passengers. Feel free to interact with your personal guide and ask questions on route to the park. Located just 12 miles (19km) from San Francisco's city limits, Muir Woods makes a perfect quick getaway from the concrete jungle. The fog is good for more than just natural air conditioning, it helps grow really tall coastal redwoods! Muir Wood's tallest tree is 258 feet (79m) in length. The Muir grove averages in age from 500-800 years with the oldest estimated to be at least 1200 years old. After the Woods you get free time in Sausalito to walk along the water, shop, dine or sip some wine.

Transportation is provided in an extended 2015 Ford Expedition EL XLT equipped with 4-wheel drive (just in case). This vehicle was selected for its size and 3rd row space which has 17% more leg room than other SUVs of its model year. 

Coach buses over 35 ft are not advised on the steep, narrow, and winding road down to Muir Woods. You may request that your driver takes slow if you are sensitive to the road conditions near Mount Tamalpais. If you are thinking about driving yourself, the popularity of this park has led to some major parking congestion. About 80% of the one million or so visitors per year attempt to arrive by car and compete for 150 or so parking spaces. Your private SUV tour picks you up at your hotel and drops you off close to the forest entrance. Since private tours don't have multiple pick up/drop off locations like some mixed group tours, you will save valuable time. You won't get stuck waiting on tardy strangers either. 

Detailed Schedule:
Pickup is at your San Francisco hotel at 8:30am or 2pm. You typically arrive at Muir Woods after 40 to 60 minutes of driving depending on pickup location, loading time and traffic. Not included: $10 admission per person 16 years and older. This fee is not included to prevent overcharging of smaller groups under 7 people, National Park annual pass holders and families with children. This way you only pay for the entrance fees you need.
Only rangers can guide inside the park so your driver will give you instructions before you set off to explore on your own. It takes about 45 minutes round trip to Cathedral Grove where you find the oldest trees in this grove. If you want to take a longer walk, the Hillside Trail may be open depending on conditions (60-75 minutes). If you did not eat yet, The Muir Woods Cafe has coffee, tea and tries to use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Most people love their berry scone. To provide adequate time in Sausalito, it is recommended that you depart Muir Woods at 10:45 am (4:15 pm tour) for the 30 minute drive to the seaside town. Enjoy a seaside meal, taste some wine or stroll the harbor while taking in the views of San Francisco. The tour departs Sausalito for San Francisco at 12:15 pm (5:45 pm tour) Depending on your hotel's location and traffic, you should be back at your SF hotel between 12:30-12:45 (6:00-6:15 pm tour). If you want more time in Sausalito, you may take the ferry boat back at a time of your choosing (ferry ticket not included).

Private tour advantage: If you are 100% sure you will depart the tour in Sausalito and make your own way back, scenic alternatives such as the Golden Gate Bridge viewpoint & Muir Beach may be available so ferry passengers don't get shorted on time they paid for.
