Lonnie_H, Feb 2023
We had a great time all tour guides had great information about the sites we viewed in San Francisco
Great weather but tour description needs some improvement
Veronica_S, Jan 2023
trip was good-weather & views beautiful BUT late by 20 min, AM guide no microphone Paying to enter Muir Woods was not stated
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear Veronica, thanks a lot for your feedback! I am sorry to hear that but I should say that the driver wasn't late. When you book the tour, in a thankful letter it's clearly written that pick-up time from Fisherman's Wharf is between 8.45 and 9 am. The second thing is that there is also clearly said in the tour description that the entrance fee to Muir Woods is NOT included into the tour price. Talking about the microphone I am very sorry the driver didn't find out how to switch it on in a right way and we will definitely take this fact into account
Trip is good, it help discover San Francisco many attraction on a single day
Sergio_P, Oct 2022
The tour was we expected, very satisfied, I would change rating , providing the tour operator do not misled tourists, with add on that are included in price tour. They were paid to pick us from hotel, last minute they refuse to complied No pick up from hotel, also may help to let people to bring your snacks as the trip is very long and people need nourishing other than that the guides were very
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear Sergio_P, thanks a lot for your feedback. Talking about misleading, sometimes we have to ask our customers to meet our vehicle somewhere closer to Downtown because there can be lots of reasons when the driver can run late, for example, traffic or someone is late too. Also, we try not to cross Market Street because there is a lot of traffic and the whole bus will be late if the driver goes there. And we always call our customers in the evening before the tour to explain these facts and ask to come somewhere closer. You are texting about the snacks and so on... I have never heard that the customers are not allowed to take something to eat with them into the van, it's very strange and I'm interested in who told you this. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your time and we will take in account everything you texted us about.
Chiara_D, Oct 2022
Great tour, beautiful scenery and perfect to see all the touristy highlights (and much more) in one day. Both guides were good storytellers and entertaining. Would recommend!
Response from Host, Oct 2022

Moreover, thank you for the high rank of our guides' job, we really appreciate it. We are looking forward to seeing you again on our other tours!
So so tour!

The SF tour was average. The tour guide was informational but needs humor and interesting stories. Was told to meet at 1:45 for Muir Woods and then got a call at 1:20 from the driver saying that he would leave early at 1:20. He ended up picking us up at 1:30 close to the meeting point. We were allowed roughly 1.5 hour at Muir Woods. It would be nice To have more time at Muir Woods. Would skip the SF tour and do the Muir Woods again!
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Dear customer, thanks a lot for your feedback! We are glad you had a perfect time on our tour and enjoyed our guide's job! That's really important for us! Unfortunately, according to the Muir Woods policy, tour buses are not allowed to be there for more than 1 hour, so if you had 1 hour and a half there, you are lucky! Otherwise, we would be happy to let you spend there much more time. We would be happy to see you on our other tours!
Not enough time to explore.
Misty_O, Jul 2022
This tour doesn’t give you much time at all to experience. Most of the time is in a van driving. Very rushed.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Dear Misty_O, thanks a lot for your feedback. What do you mean by saying "rushed"? We have a scheduled tour which our drivers/guides follow. Our customers spend 1 hour 15 (20) min in the Woods and 1 hour in Sausalito. Anyway sorry for any inconvenience and we would be glad to see you on our other tours!
Personalized city tour was superb!
Donna_R, Jun 2022
Our driver in the morning was excellent. Randy really knows the city and pointed out the features that would be of most interest to us. It felt very personalized. The second part of the tour was on the van with eleven other passengers. The van had very tight seating which was very uncomfortable with limited leg room. With being in tight quarters, the air conditioning was insufficient for the number of people in the vehicle and it was difficult to hear the driver. The driver was adequate and the destinations themselves were great.
Top trip

Learned a lot. For those,...
newmanads, Feb 2022
Learned a lot. For those, like us, that did ALL day, make time for lunch break. Also, felt a little random. No telegraph park.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thank you very much for your feedback. This is very important for our company. We are glad that you had fun and learned a lot. There was no parking on the top of Telegraph Hill, so the tour guide had to stay in the vehicle.
Great trip to Sausalito....
Sofia_M, Dec 2021
Great trip to Sausalito. The driver/guide was very helpful and kind. Lots of stories a history. Ven when the weather was so so
Good Tour
Martha_B, Dec 2021
The tour was very good. Really it makes too long a day to do the city tour and the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour in one day. Jerry was very knowledge about the area.
Great time
mark_m, Aug 2021
Jerry was wonderful. Had a great time. Wish we could have done the city tour as well, but got a refund. Highly recommended it..
Great time, SF
Richard_E, Jul 2021
Jerry was a great guide. We visited all the in demand sites plus many more. Really good time, worth the money!
Pick this tour!!! Its the best one out there to see everything.
Sarena_P, May 2021
I’m so glad I picked this tour!! I had a day to myself and I got to see every part of San Francisco, Muir Woods and saucelito. Our tour guide was beyond knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we all had a wonderful day. This is one of the best tours I’ve ever been on. I went by myself while my sister was working and I made friends with the people on my tour.
Response from Host, May 2021
Sarena, thank you! Come again!!!
Do take this tour!!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Richard_L, Apr 2021
I absolutely cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed this tour! Due to Union Square being closed off, our pick up point had to be redirected to a different location. I had to admit my husband and I were slightly panic stricken but…our tour guide saved the day! He redirected us to a new pick up point and it was smooth sailing from there! Our guide, Kirill Sobolev, was most knowledgeable of the San Francisco sites. When they say it’s a private group…they mean it! There was 4 of us driven in a huge SUV. There no way we could have seen all the sites that we saw without this tour! Fisherman‘s Wharf, Pier 39, The Embarcadero, Nob Hill, Lombard Street, the Mission District, downtown, Chinatown, (and so much more) but we especially loved the stops at the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito and Muir Wood National Park. We learned so much about San Francisco and it’s inhabitants and we are very very happy that we took this tour! As a matter of fact we later came across some other tourists and we gave them our tour guides phone number! Cannot say enough good things! Well worth the money! Four thumbs up from my husband and I… And if we had more thumbs we would raise them too!
