Fantastic trip! The weather was perfect, the transportation was comfortable and the tour guide was great. All the other participants were pleasant and made for an easy-going and lovely day. Fantastic tour destinations!


Beautiful trip! Great tour guide, super comfy bus, smooth ride! The trees and nature were healing and awe inspiring. Had delicious Peach Bellini's and champagne overlooking the ocean in Sausalito, it was perfect😍 and the bay cruise was a nice little trip around the bridge and back. I would definitely recommend, it was our 15 year wedding anniversary and was a magical day☺️🌈👍🙏


The stop to view the Golden gate bridge was great. The redwood trees were also amazing. The Bay cruise fantastic.


We really enjoyed our day in this area, and this tour! Our driver/tour guide kept us safe and on time during the day. He provided good info too. We had never been to Muir Woods and found it so beautiful. Truly enjoyed all of the 90 minutes we were able to spend here (which is the park limit). I can't imagine trying to see Muir Woods without being part of a tour, as the parking is a nightmare, but our bus was able to drop us off front and center. We had both been to Sausilito before, but it had been awhile, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We took the ferry back to San Francisco, so we had a little extra time to spend in Sausilito. The ferry ride was fabulous too - we saw the bridge and Alcatraz, and it was a beautiful day in the harbor. This day could not have gone better! Great communication for place and time of pick up too. Thank you!


Super convenient way to see the bridge, Muir Woods and Sausalito. Our driver was very impressive navigating the large bus through the windy roads while providing interesting commentary. Bay tour was nice, but the guide was a recording. Probably would have enjoyed a more interactive in-person guide, similar to the bus portion. Overall, really enjoyed.


It was a very nice and organized tour. I would recommend it. The Muir Woods were beautiful and the bay cruise was amazing.


It was great! Joseph was an excellent tour guide and driver and he gave us fun facts as we left San Fran and made our way to Muir Woods! We even stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge, which I did not expect and was pleasantly surprised by! The stop allowed us to snap pics and to use the restrooms. As we drove into Muir Woods Joseph told us about the trees and wildlife. Muir Woods was phenomenal! It was showering but it just made it atmospheric! There were various paths and the main ones has wood boardwalks. I throughly enjoyed my 90 mins at Muir Woods. Sausalito was great too! Joseph gave us recommendations on various food places and we went to the Mexican restaurant. It was a great time and I was very glad we booked a tour. I highly recommend!


Tour bus driver Joe was excellent, providing commentary on the drives to Muir Woods and Sausalito. Opted for the tour with the Bay Cruise. Bay Cruise is done via a redeemable voucher at Pier 39– and as of the date of my tour, could be used at any point within 2 weeks. It did not have to be used the same day! All together a very easy way to visit Marin without renting a car


I was sceptical about this tour. But it passed all expectations. Muir Woods is a "go to" for anyone visiting San Francisco. It is difficult to get to with public transport so a tour bus is ideal. 90 minutes at the woods is plenty.


Muir Woods Park is amazing. It is only 30 minutes from San Francisco, so it is a great option if you want a half-day tour. Punctual and well-organized. The driver guide, Jan, was a native and gave us many tips about the city.
