Perfect Tour to Experience SF
Kristina_S, Sept 2023
This tour was the best way to experience the highlights of San Francisco! James was a wonderful tour guide and everything went so smoothly. I recommend booking the early tour to Muir Woods because it gets busy fast, we were able to experience the beauty before the crowds got there. Can’t beat front row service to the see the Golden Gate Bridge or get on the Alcatraz ferry! The van is equipped with a tv to show videos about the bridge and Alcatraz during the drive. He also surprised us with a drive by past the Mrs. Doubtfire house! I highly recommend this tour.

Viktoriya_H, Sept 2023
It was a very interesting and educational tour. James told the story in an entertaining way. Documentary videos showed during the trip gave better understanding and increased interest
Response from Host, Sept 2023
We are the vacation from the school lecture field trip style of every other tour in this city! Thank you for letting us be your vacation heroes!
Efficient way to see SF highlights
Adrienne_K, Sept 2023
Great tour hitting all the highlights in an efficient way without being rushed. Pick the early Muir woods option: The best part is we got to visit Muir Woods before the crowds - amazing experience to walk around the woods without hearing other humans. Recommended!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
SHHH! The early bird option is the best kept secret! We are the first ones there with a head start during the early bird and everyone loves it. We thank you for your kind words and were so glad you chose us to make the day a pleasure for you!
A Perfect Day
Timothy_T, July 2023
Arriving at Muir woods before the park opened provided a quiet experience. The visit to the Golden Gate Bridge visitors center was a nice addition that I wasn't expecting. The timing was perfect with us ending at the at the Alcatraz boat for nice visit on the Island.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
That Early Bird Tour always gets the worm! Best kept secret in SF!
Amazing trip
Tammy_B, July 2023
Me and my whole family had a great time on this trip. James was a great guide, he was very knowledgeable and unlike other big tour busses it was a small group so everyone was talking and interacting which to us is a lot better than a large group. I would absolutely recommend this tour over others because of how well everything was executed and how great James was.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Amazing day with amazing people!! The pleasure was all ours!!
Very good
Fernando_R, July 2023
Alcatraz, Golden Gate a bit foggy but still got nice pics. Driver James was good, understanding & knew his job.
Response from Host, July 2023
Mark Twain once said the coldest winter he ever faced was a summer in san francisco. Yes the fog is unbearable at times but we made the most of the day.
Very Pleasant trip
Craig_C, July 2023

The Express Is the Way to go!! Thank you for joining us!
Full day of fun
Sharrod_M, July 2023
James was very knowledgeable and engaging with the group. He kept the ride entertaining and told many stories of the history of the area. It was a lot to do in one day but it did not feel overwhelming. A great experience.
Response from Host, July 2023
Fun fun fun in the fog! Thank you for letting us be part of your vacation!
Great all in one
Ricardo_S, June 2023
There’s lots of options to view each one of these attractions, but this is by far the best. Entertainment throughout the drive between stops. The early appt is really a great advantage
Response from Host, June 2023
Non stop action every single minute of this tour! Thank you for letting us make the day special for you!
Great tour.
Judy_A, June 2023
Jonathon was very informative and always on time. I am in a wheelchair and he was wonderful helping me.
Response from Host, June 2023
Jonathan James said that the best gratuity he ever received in four years was a big smile and a hug from you. He really felt like you enjoyed being out and being mobile with ease. It was a joy to have you join us!!
Great tour - highly recommended
Linda_S, June 2023
James was a great driver/guide who took care of us very well. We enjoyed the early pickup so we came very early to Muir Woods and had the whole wood basically to ourselves. What a treat! Perfect to stop at the Golden Gate Bridge to have a photo opportunity and to walk a little bit along the bridge. The voucher for a snack was great to use at the coffee shop for a sandwich or just a cinnamon bun. We loved the Alcatraz part of the tour as well. We highly recommend you to book this tour with James - well worth the money and the early morning!
Response from Host, June 2023
Shhh! early morning with james is the best kept secret!! guess the cat is out of the bag as it really is such a wonderful time to experience the park! Thank you for being part of our little road trip! It was a pleasure!
James the Excellent tour guide!
DOUGLAS_K, June 2023
James was the most knowledgeable polite tour guide ever! Muir Woods should include a guide. The lady at the the outside table —very rude! Told me I was sol because there was no internet connection! I wonder if she would have said that if I had a medical emergency! Never again!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you for the kind words about James! We so appreciate you! Unfortunately they do not allow your driver to conduct tours in the park. Please forgive us for the park ranger at Muir Woods front desk as they are not an employee of ours. She does not work for us nor represent us. We agree she could have been nicer to you; she is a union park ranger and does not care. Our apologies! Regardless…thank you for letting us make the day for you!
Loved my trip
martin_r, May 2023

Response from Host, May 2023
You rock! Thank you for letting us make the day special for you!
Best Mother’s Day ever!
Gail_R, May 2023
I was a little worried about getting to our tour so early in the morning 6:45am, but I’m so glad to have booked this tour! Our driver James was amazing! He is genuinely friendly, he didn’t come across as faking just to make a tip. The Muir Woods were magical, especially that early. My mom and I had the place to ourselves, it was so peaceful. James stopped so we could grab a drink and snack on the way to the bridge. It was so much fun walking on the Golden Gate Bridge, even though it was super foggy. James then took us to the Alcatraz ferry, he made sure we got in the correct line. We enjoyed our tour of Alcatraz. This is a wonderful tour package, totally worth the money. James offered a lot of interesting information and included informative videos during the ride. I 100% recommend this tour, hopefully you will get James as your driver!
Response from Host, May 2023
What a great review! It simply puts the magic back into our souls when we hear things like this. We work so hard to make sure each tour is of the highest standards and it is nice to hear we were able to show you this. Thank you for getting up so early! Like James mentioned the early bird 645am tour is the best kept secret in town! Thank you for letting us make the day special for you!
Alcatraz, Muir Woods
Nikki_M, May 2023
Great experience, did this trip solo.I Learned so much from our tour guide James, he was so informative. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
You were a blessing to have! Thank you for letting us make the day special for you!
Very enjoyable day.
Roderick_C, Apr 2023
This was a very well organised trip, very comfortable mini bus, driver gave a very good commentary whilst travelling between visits, can recomend the early trip to Muir Wood as by the time we was leaving all the large coaches were pulling in.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Shhhh! The best kept secret out there is the 645am! We are glad you enjoyed this hidden jewel the way nature intended it to be! Thank you for joining us!
Great highlights trip!
Nadine_M, Mar 2023
James was absolutely brilliant. We were lucky enough to get the early start so we arrived at the woods when no-one else was there, which was glorious. Lovely comfortable vehicle with charging facilities. The perfect trip.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Shhhh! Don' tell everyone!! The 645am tour is the best kept secret! Nobody gets you there as early as us and there is nothing like the sounds of nature. Thank you for joining us!
Jesse_P, Nov 2022
James was the best tour guide I’ve ever had. Very educational trip and everything was timed perfectly
Response from Host, Nov 2022
When your kids shouted out "10 out of 10" we knew we made their trip! When we created this tour in the beginning it was with a family like yours in mind and we are glad that you guys loved it!! You were so much fun along the way and it much entertainment for us as well. Thank you for joining us!
Fantastic family day out
Jen_J, Oct 2022
