Monterey/Carmel Peninsula Tour

From Muir Woods to Sausalito

Wednesday September 1, 2010

Thursday September 2, 2010

A trip to the woods is just what the doctor ordered for peace, rest, and rejuvenation of spirit. The towering redwood forests of Marin County are home to the tallest, oldest trees in the world. They are majestic in scope, awe-inspiring in beauty, and singular in rarity.

To get to the woods, you have to go over the river, or in this case, over the bay. And the trip over this bay is a destination in and of itself. Guests will travel across the well loved Golden Gate Bridge into beautiful Marin County, making a brief stop at the North Tower where everyone can capture on film the breathtaking view of the City from across San Francisco Bay.

Guests will then wind down the Panoramic Highway into Muir Woods. President Theodore Roosevelt saved this grove of ancient redwoods from the lumberjack’s saw almost one hundred years ago. Today, visitors from throughout the world come to see these gigantic redwoods, only found along the Pacific Coastline. After touring Muir Woods, guests will travel on to Sausalito.

Tour costs:                    $68.00 per person, max 20 per minicoach
Tour cost with lunch:    $123.00 per person (see Ondine Restaurant menu below)

Includes:
•    Muir woods tickets

•    Muir woods brochure

•    Sausalito map

•    Group lunch at Ondine’s in Sausalito (or lunch on own)

•    Wine, iced tea or coffee with lunch

We’ll provide digital disposable cameras for the trip.

Stops to include:
•    Twin Peaks: Being almost at the geographical center of San Francisco there is no finer place to see the city than atop Twin Peaks. With it’s panoramic views, Twin Peaks should be a must-stop on every tourist’s list of places to go.  Named for it’s two virtually identical summits, Twin Peaks, stands at an elevation of about 922 feet, second highest in San Francisco

Experience “FLOATING” Sausalito
Houseboat Tour and Sausalito Shopping


Wednesday September 1, 2010

While a tour solely of San Francisco is an excellent introduction to the City, to truly appreciate the magnitude of beauty encompassed within the Bay Area, one needs to travel northward to Marin County. There, one can witness in full splendor the majesty of the headlands baring their grassy chests to the edge of the continent. There, one can breathe in deeply the views of San Francisco and Oakland with their resplendent irregularity of homes and skyscrapers, bridges and piers and ships of all sort and size sailing lazily in between the shores.

We will cross the Golden Gate Bridge en route to Marin. No matter how many times one makes such a trip the aesthetic impact never weakens, if anything it grows stronger with each trip. Great cables span like albatross wings hundreds of feet above the rolling ocean. Fog drifts in, donning a different character every day: some days coy, almost hesitant, other times assuming a fearsome, gargantuan character, while other days it seems to be only an impenetrable mystery of serenity.

The destination will be the charming town of Sausalito. This artist community located directly across the Bay from San Francisco, is home to a very unique community of individuals who have found a way to make this glorious location their permanent home. Welcome to the Sausalito Floating Homes community, where residents greet the day as light slips up over the horizon, leaving a shimmering, multicolored glaze over the water’s surface. The community consists of approximately four hundred homes inhabited by a diverse and eclectic group of people, many of whom are either executives or artists.

Says one resident of her lovely water-born mansion, “There is a serene beauty to living on the water, in close harmony with the broad variety of wildlife which surrounds are homes. From the mollusks, crab, and fish (including the notorious humming toadfish) that populate the waters, to the egrets, heron, ducks, kingfishers and the many other birds that fly, swim, wade and dive among our homes, we share the environment with an abundance of fascinating creatures.” Other residents speak fondly of the decompression they experience when they return to their homes, where they are surrounded by the natural, primordial, tranquilizing influence of the sea’s waters.

Today your guests will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in the rhythm of the sea and those who set their lives by its ebb and flow. Guests will enjoy exclusive tours of some of the most beautiful and unusual Sausalito Floating Homes. Each home’s owner will personally conduct the tour, introducing guests to their inner world.

Tour costs:                     $70.00 per person, min/MAX. of 40 per motorcoach
Tour costs with lunch:    $125.00 per person (see Ondine Restaurant Menu below)
