Heather was our driver and tour guide. She was knowledgeable and friendly! The Muir Woods were amazing…. A beautiful, peaceful and tranquil walk in the Redwood forest. Then off to Sausalito for a nice little walk along the water’s edge and of course a stop for an ice cream before taking the ferry back to fisherman’s wharf. A great day experience!


Great Trip , Great Organisation and so a very Great tour. We like it . The Muir Woods a spectacular.


Amazing experience! Astonishing place. Also the tour company is great. Highly recommended. Thank you


Bus driver Joe was great, views we're beautiful. All around great experience. I highly recommend this activity.


The trees are big and beautiful. And the boat tour was even more amazing. Wouldn't recommend Muir Woods for the young ones, unless they are into hiking. All I heard was screaming mimi's everywhere. It really took away from my experience. Kids get bored and then get mad and cry

Very organized tour. Randy was our driver and guide and he was very professional, knowledgeable and very funny. We started the trip with a short city tour, stopped at Golden Gate Bridge and went to beautiful Muir Woods National Park. We stopped for lunch at Sausalito. The company organized our Alcatraz tour for 2:10 pm. Everything was perfect. Highly recommend Grey Line of San Francisco!

Sherry C

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Muir Woods monument and the beautiful Sausalito area! The bus driver was entertaining and gave us adequate time and information to make the trip a wonderful experience! He also was willing to drop us off at our desired location back in San Francisco. I highly recommend this tour!

We purchased tickets to the Muir Woods/Sausalito/Alcatraz tour on 7/14/19. It said to be at the bus by 800am to leave. We showed up and were told our reservation didn’t go through. Viator had issues, and “someone should have contacted me”. Wasted trip to catch the bus, not to mention our disappointment. Gray lines allowed us on the 1:45 tour, but we had to reschedule our whole day.
