The tour was on time and driver/guide was welcoming. He was very knowledgeable and informed the group about our destination and even relayed some facts about places we passed by. The stop at Golden Gate Bridge was enough time for all of us to enjoy and take some pictures. Muir Woods visit was fantastic! Amazed with all the tall trees and greenery all around. We thought we were on the way to Cathedral grove but suspected that we might be on the wrong trail. We saw later that we were on the high trail. with only 30 minutes left we decided to go back and finally saw the sign to Cathedral Grove. Good that we didn’t miss it. Overall, Muir woods visit was great. Next stop was Sausilito and we stayed behind and took the ferry later. The guide gave us some tips where to eat and have some ice cream later. It was a lovely time to spend a few hours and just taking it easy in Sausilito.

Fantastic morning exploring Muir Woods
Helen_C

We had wanted to go to Muir Woods but we’re running out of ideas for how to get there- Ubers we’re too expensive, biking it was out of the question. And then we found this tour online! We were picked up promptly from our hotel door and our guide told us a lot about San Francisco. We then went to the woods and finally saw them and finished the trip in Sausalito- the entire trip was less than the Uber cost showing for a one way drive to the woods, so excellent value.

Not Really a Tour
Gena_N
, Apr 2022
Not really a tour, more like expensive transportation. If I did it again, I’d take an Uber. Not enough time in Muir Woods and we took the ferry back to San Francisco.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Dear Gena_N, we apologize for the inconvenience you experienced, but the tour description clearly states where and how much time we spend with our tourists. As for your return to the city by ferry, lots of our tourists do that if they want to spend more time in Sausalito because that is a really stunning place.

Majestic experience!
Valencia_W
, Apr 2022
Being picked up at and dropped off to the hotel by the driver/guide is a money saver. He was quite knowledgeable and engaging, including giving quizzes along the way. I enjoyed all the vantage points of seeing Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean, the Bay, San Francisco, and other nearby cities. Last but not least, Muir Woods is a majestic and serene experience which is worth the fee all by itself.

Muir woods was spectacular. We had 1 hour there which was just enough to do a short trail and soak up the atmosphere. Sausalito has a lovely feel and we had lunch at Poggio- delicious Italian food.

We will definitely take into account your wishes regarding the wearing of the mask by the tour guides, but since they all are fully vaccinated, they do not need to wear a mask in accordance with the latest Сalifornia regulations

Super tour and best deal with pick up at our hotel!
Julia_N
, Mar 2022
Our driver/tour guide (Jerry) was excellent. Very informative and entertaining. He explained the tour and shared highlights along the way. It was amazing to be in the woods after such a short drive from the city - a really nice break from all the city sight-seeing we had done. We found the tour to be our best option compared to trying to Uber or trying to rent a car for the day. We were picked up at our hotel (HUGE bonus over other tour companies) and dropped off there as well. It was unclear that we also needed to purchase the $15 entry fee, so that was a small surprise. Also, be sure to budget for a tip for your driver/guide, as his experience and interesting stories add so much to the tour! He deserved big tips!

We went on a tour to Muir Woods & Sausalito and couldn’t have been more pleased. Ulrich was a fantastic guide. He’s very personal and professional giving a custom experience to each small group of people that were on our bus. He gave lots of information & answered questions & provided a nice calm environment with no super tight time restrictions. Appreciate the time allotted for personal exploration. Great value. Would do it again with this company!

The tour guide, orich, needs to be more enthusiastic and informative. We felt pressured in tipping him 20% even though he didn’t deserve it.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
We are very sorry that you have such an experience after visiting our tour, but the payment of the tip depends solely on the desire of the customers. We hope that we will see you again on our other tours and you will change your mind. Regarding Ulrich, our guide, I can say that he has already been working for many years and is one of the best guides in our company.
