The Surrounding Areas of San Francisco -- What to visit Choose from private or organized tours to explore the area starting from San Francisco, there are many places you can visit within a day like the towns of Carmel and Monterey along the coast, the tour also allows you to enjoy the splendid views from the Californian coast and the famous 17-mile drive, as well as learn more about the history of California.
If you love nature, Yosemite National Park is a must with the Sierra Nevada mountains, or alternatively, Muir Woods declared a national monument for its giant sequoias. If you love good wine, visit Sonoma and Napa Valley for some wine tasting. If you are visiting from a foreign country and English is not your preferred language - we do offer several tours in foreign languages as well, however, as our personal advice, if you do not find your language or maybe you do not want to spend the extra money for the tour guide in the foreign language of your choice, you can still take part in our English-speaking day trips, for these tours you don't need to know the language that well, it's more about what you visit, see and taste (wine!) ... the price is almost always lower than the foreign-languages counterparts, and they will still take you exploring the surrounding areas that you want to see.
