      Walking through the redwoods was awe inspiring and seeing Alcatraz as well as learning little known history was fascinating.
      Highly recommend this trip. Therapy in Muir Woods, Fantastic Views at Spinnaker Sausalito and history at Alcatraz
      Nick_K, Jan 2023
      This trip was fantastic and highly recommend for anyone visiting San Francisco. Out tour guide Randall was great. Very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour while driving to our destinations. We went over Golden Gate Bridge and parked to have the most perfect, beautiful views. Like Randall said, walking through Muir Woods was therapeutic. So quiet, beautiful and so much oxygen to breath. Looking up to see the Redwoods was amazing. The biggest surprise was when we went to the Spinnaker in Sausalito for lunch. Highly, highly recommend. We were right on the water and saw close up seals swimming and view of the bay. It is fine dining and expensive, but for lunch we had a small appetizer and a drink. The view is worth every dollar. Finally Alcatraz was really cool to see. I would highly recommend this trip and your service.
      Needed more time in Sausalito
      Denise_W, Jan 2023
      This was a great combination. We thoroughly enjoyed all 3 stops, totally worth it. My only complaint was that there was not enough time in Sausalito. We had 1 hour which was barely enough time to grab a lunchtime snack which left no time to walk the town. I think an extra half hour at this stop would have made the day more enjoyable.
      Great way to hit the highlights.

      Dustin was a fantastic tour guide. Great communication prior to pick up. The smaller group allowed for lots of conversation with our guide who seemed knowledgeable about the city, its history and had great recommendations for other things to do, places to eat. Tour guides aren’t allowed to go to Alcatraz so for that part we were given our tickets and dropped off with instructions. I only had two days in the city so this was a great way to hit some highlights.
      Wonderful trip

      Randall was an amazing tour guide, he shared all sorts of stories about the various areas on the trip and provided an overall wonderful experience
      educational experience on gorgeous, scenic island with breathtaking views
      susan_a, Jan 2023
      the educational, self-paced walking tour and scenic views; easy process to get tickets and board ferry; plenty of room on ferry with seats for everyone. note: we went to Alcatraz only as due to inclement weather - we could not go to Muir Woods; tour guide was very receptive to my questions and offered Muir Woods tour the next day but I could not go then. Overall great experience which departed from world renowned Fisherman’s Wharf.
      WOW - Muir Woods!!!
      Michelle_M, Jan 2023
      A fantastic day, entertaining and WOW - Muir Woods, what an amazing place. Will definately be booking this tour again.
      Deborah_R, Jan 2023
      Muir Woods is amazing and beautiful. Alcatraz is also a must see in the San Francisco area. The tour guide was wonderful. The only complaint I have is that we did feel a little bit rushed when we stopped in Sausalito.
      Great full tour day
      Diane_W, Jan 2023
      I enjoyed Muir Woods it was a nice peaceful early morning walk and then Sausalito was really cute quaint town with lots of little shops. And Alcatraz was quite interesting a lot of walking and a lot of uphill just in case you're a little older like I am take the tram. Was a very pleasant full day
      Nice day 👍
      Emma_S, Dec 2022
      Full day with lots to see Really enjoyed Muir woods and Alcatraz The guide was funny and informative
      Highly recommended
      Alex_B, Dec 2022
      Wish the stop at Muir Woods would have been a bit longer , but in all a very pleasant experience. Robert was great and knowledgeable. Loved the fact that we were a small group, 13, and that made it easy to get back on after each stop. Highly recommended! Thank you !
      Must Do San Francisco Daytrip!
      Nikki_T, Dec 2022
      The Alcatraz/Muir Woods/Sausalito tour was an exceptional San Francisco experience. The tour operator communicated well about tour itinerary and location pickup/drop offs beforehand. Dustin was our driver to Marin County and he took time to stop for quick pictures at the Legion of Honor and the Golden Gate Bridge along the way. Muir Woods is simply stunning and Sausalito is a quaint bayside community with a bustling Main Street for shopping/dining. Alcatraz is a great family experience and the ferry is 15-20 min ride. Great customer service all around and well worth the price. It’s a full day experience and they take care of you all the way!
      Best tour I had!
      Josephine_G, Dec 2022

      Thank you Sarah for your feedback.
      Sarina_R, Dec 2022
      If it rains and the tour is cancelled you get harassed and insulted by the trip tour guide for wanting a refund
      Response from Host, Dec 2022
      Dear Sarina Rodriguez, I am sorry you feel this way. The tour was not canceled but because it was raining you decided to not go. The tour is running when it's raining. Thank you
      Amazing Day
      Amber_K, Dec 2022
