Muir Woods & Alcatraz
4-hr Muir Woods and Sausalito tour plus ferry and admission to Alcatraz island, including award-winning Alcatraz audio tour. Limited availability and advance booking is recommended
From US$ 114.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Experience some of the Bay Area’s top attractions on this Alcatraz and Muir Woods tour that also includes a stop in Sausalito. At Muir Woods National Monument, stare in wonder at the coastal redwoods, some of the tallest trees on Earth. Soak up the charm of seaside Sausalito, and experience Alcatraz in one of two ways—admission to the prison, which includes the ferry ride to Alcatraz Island and the audio tour.
What to Expect
This tour is likely to sell out! The Alcatraz daily ticket allotment regularly fills up weeks in advance, so book early to avoid disappointment.
 
Alcatraz admission:
You’ll board the ferry to Alcatraz at Pier 33 on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Enjoy the scenic ride across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island, and disembark to start your independent tour of this island prison. Put on your provided headset to listen to the award-winning audio tour, “Doing Time,” and learn about notorious criminals like Al Capone who were incarcerated here. Hear about escape attempts from 'The Rock,' and listen to commentary from former inmates and staff.

Muir Woods and Sausalito:
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and travel north to Muir Woods National Monument for your exploration of the giant coastal redwood trees. This old-growth forest is home to some of the planet’s oldest and tallest trees, which you can admire in all their glory as you walk along shady paths.

Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town just north of the Golden Gate Bridge that sits between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay. You have leisure time here to walk along the waterfront, maybe purchase a snack (own expense) or perhaps shop in the galleries and boutiques.

Booker beware! They overbook and move your trip without a phone call

Total disappointment and lack of customer service...check your email often or get left behind. I was looking forward to the Alcatraz/Muir Wood/Sausalito combo tour, but am got left without Alcatraz tickets and a cancelled Muir Woods tour. Now, I don’t trust them and want others...More

I doubt it but don't know for sure. Probably best to call Gray line to confirm.
