Muir Woods National Monument is in Marin County, California, just a few miles north of San Francisco. The 558-acre monument preserves one of the last remaining ancient redwood forests in the Bay Area. Some of the redwoods are nearly 1,000 years old and reach heights of more than 250 feet.
Are Face Masks Required? What measures have you taken regarding Covid -19?
Safe Tour by San Francisco Jeep Tours
We have been working with our staff to train everyone and follow the prescribed best practices and procedures. Our goal is to ensure that we are providing a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests.
To that end we have daily health checks and temperature screening for all staff members.
Cleaning, Sanitizing & Touchless Transactions
Numerous extra steps are being taken to keep our guests safe during this time. Private group tours are perfect for social distancing. Open air Jeeps with only your private group reduce some of the risks.
All touch surfaces are sanitized between tours.
We will also have hand sanitizer and wipes available on site and on board the Jeep.
Face Masks or Face Coverings are no longer required for vaccinated guests and tour guides. For everyones safety we stongly suggest face coverings for unvaccinated guests while in the vehicle.
If you don’t have a face covering we will be happy to supply one.
All face coverings should:
- Be worn properly throughout the entire experience
- Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the guest to remain hands-free
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops
- Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable
- Please note a shirt over the mouth and nose does not qualify as a face covering.

If you choose to give your guide a gratuity, it would be much appreciated.

Why should I travel with SF Jeep Tours vs a Hop on Hop off Tour Bus?
Well, obviously, our Jeeps are way more cool than those behemoths! But if that’s not a compelling enough reason, consider this: Hop On Hop Off buses are not allowed in most of the city. That means you will see only major tourist sites rather than the hidden gems that only a Jeep Tour can get to.
Plus you and your group are the only ones aboard the Jeep. Tour at the pace you want.
