Traveler Tips

Guide pleasant and knowledgeable; Muir woods a lovely and peaceful walk, though an hour was tight; Sausalito pretty, needed more than an hour to be able to both eat and walk around
He was an excellent driver considering the roads were so narrow and curvey.
Everything ran on time, personable guide, wonderful vehicle, saw lots of extra sites, intimate travel group, woods were amazing, well paced, would highly recommend

It was our frst look at redwood trees and floating houses. Had a great lunch in Sausalito. Our tour guide Randall was knowledgeable and kind. I would have given this experience a 5 if not for the weather
Perfect Afternoon in the Redwoods

The woods took the starring role of the day. Our guide Dustin was the perfect costar. Muir Woods is beyond expectations. Our family group ranged from 9-74. Each one of us was in awe. Dustin has a natural sense of humor and a good knowledge of the area. He was helpful, organized and respectful. One couldn’t ask for a better guide/driver.
Peacefulness so close to the city!

I highly recommend the tour. It’s hard to believe something like Muir Woods is so close to the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. It may be the most beautiful area I’ve ever seen. Ben was a great guide.
Muir Woods

Muir Woods is pretty special and it’s always nice to get out of the city and into nature. Sausalito is great timing wise it’s a quick turnaround but taking the fairy back is always an option.

Enjoyed the walk in the woods. Would have loved if the allowed time in Muir Woods was more than a an hour and 15 minutes. Sausalito neat place, but would give that up to stay in Muir Woods. Was overall very comfortable and efficient experience. Tour guide Randell was good!

We enjoyed Muir Woods. It’s a nice short tour that we could fit into our two- day schedule. Our guide Robert was knowledgeable, lively and enjoyable.
Beautiful day in Muir Woods / Sausalito

Robert was a wonderful guide and provided lots of interesting information about the sites of San Francisco, Muir Woods, and Sausalito! Highly recommend!
Definitely worth it!

Our guide Robert was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. He kept everything moving within schedule and shared many tidbits about the places we were seeing. It was a nice drive from SF to Muir Woods and to Sausalito and he had recommendations as well for where to go and what to do after the tour. We stopped for about 5-7 minutes at a nice view point for the Golden Gate Bridge for some photos. In Muir Woods, we had slightly over an hour to explore and Robert recommended the best route to take that would make sure we were back at the meeting point in time. We chose to take the ferry back from Sausalito to take advantage of the sunshine. Everything was well paced. Overall, we had a great experience with the tour.
Everything I wanted and more!

Anya was a terrific guide on our small bus, with stops at the Bridge, Muir & Sausalito. We opted to end the tour there to have a nice lunch and take the ferry back to SF. Very pleasant trip.

Great trip! Our guide was awesome and a really good chill personality. Definitely would recommend this company.
Great guide!
Andr_B, Aug 2022
Awesome getaway from the city for the afternoon! Judith our guide from Germany was more knowledgeable than many american guides. I liked her approach to explain things that made us appreciate the Muir Woods mich more than 'just a forest with old trees'. Sausalito Was a little rushed for photo enthusiasts who like to take snaps of the streets etc but was still worth it!
Fabulous from start to finish
