We love seeing San Francisco and the Bay Area from above. It's the best way to appreciate the varying environments, textures and colors of northern California. But we also love feeling special. And that's what these VIP tours do.
Besides extra-special treatment, VIP and private tours save a lot of time. There are no line-ups and you get to your destinations speedily, while still having the chance to take in all the sights.
What we like about this day tour is that everything is included — from hotel pickup, morning coffee & croissants, seaplane tour (yes, up the air), to a picnic lunch and a private tour of Muir Woods and Sausalito.
Your adventure begins with a morning pickup from your San Francisco hotel. Don't worry about breakfast; freshly baked croissants, bagels, scones and coffee & tea are provided. On your drive over Golden Gate Bridge you learn about the history of this special area of Northern California.
Arriving at the picturesque village Sausalito you board your private seaplane. Be sure to have your photo taken before lifting off to the skies over San Francisco. Your pilot will share facts and anecdotes as you soar over the city skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Landing back at the Sausalito docks, a private vehicle meets you to take you on a tour. See the Marine Mammal Center, Rodeo Beach, and the splendid Point Bonita Lighthouse. Then, on to Muir Woods National Monument to spend some time communing with ancient redwoods. A lovely al fresco picnic is provided.
It's not over yet! There's still a guided tour of Sausalito with free time to explore on your own. At the end of the day, hop aboard the ferry to ride to San Francisco (yes, the ferry ticket is included).
Take the royal route from San Francisco to the Napa Valley Wine Country.
There's a palpable VIP feel to this luxurious helicopter tour, starting with being picked up by your private driver from your San Francisco address. At the heliport it's up-up-in-the-air to cruise above the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin County as you head to the valley of vineyards. You don't just fly over them, either — your pilot lands you right in the vineyards!
As you expect from a VIP activity, everything's included in this exclusive Wine Country jaunt — a gourmet multi-course lunch, guided winery tours, and wine tastings. This is a seasonal tour, offered from April to October. Maximum group size is six people.
