Our driver, Vlad, was knowledgeable and entertaining. He made the day fun. The woods are beautiful and hiking the path was calming and peaceful. Our time in Sausalito was lovely. We chose to stay a little longer and take the ferry back to Fisherman’s Wharf. Well worth the extra cost.
The Muir Woods and Sausalito tour was phenomenal. Antonio was a great tour guide and showed us a lot of San Francisco that we didn't see on the bus tour we purchased from The Big Bus Tour the day before. He personalized our tour and shared so much information. The Muir Woods were amazing. Just be prepared that the road to get there is really curvy, so if you get carsick, be sure to take motion sickness tablets before going. His suggestions of things to do in Sausalito were right on and great advice. Such an incredible tour!!
Just went with my mother. We had a great time! We didn't realize that our driver would also offer a tour of the city as we made our way to the Golden Gate Bridge. Everything was done in a timely but relaxing manner. Highly recommend taking the ferry back. Even though there was fog and mist, it was still a blast, and we enjoyed the views.
