The tour was an excellent way to see the beautiful Muir Woods and lovely Sausalito. The bay tour is flexible so we did that the next day.

We had a very short trip to San Francisco. This was the perfect way to spend the day. We picked up the bus in Union Square which was super convenient. After picking up passengers at the wharf our bus was unfortunately completely packed. Hearing the tour guide over the AC was somewhat challenging at times but without the AC the bus was unbearable. The tour guide did a great job narrating. Muir Woods was super fun and the amount of time we had was good to get in the non-strenuous hikes. I loved being able to go to Sausalito. We had a great lunch and made a sunset ferry back to the wharf. I wish I had more time in Sausalito to explore but it was the perfect amount of time for a leisurely lunch and the views of the bridge at sunset were breathtaking. Totally recommend the option to take the ferry. Highly recommend this for people looking to explore a little bit outside of San Fran.

I did this tour as a solo traveler. Online reservations were easy to make and the description of the tour was accurate. The tour director, Richmond, was prompt for check-in and answered all questions thoroughly. Archie, our driver and guide, gave us lots of information and stories about Muir Woods, Sausalito, and the areas we drove through. His music playlist enhanced the experience as we traveled. We had plenty of time in both Muir Woods and Sausalito.

This tour was amazing. We could enjoy the freedom of walking the trails at our own pace and enjoying the beauty of nature. Then onto the beautiful little town of Sausalito. Many great places to eat or grab a drink! And if you love to shop so many cute little places. We were so happy that we chose the cruise back. We did it close to sunset and it was breathtaking!

We booked this tour as it was one of our bucket list items! My husband and I were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary since we didn't have much of a honeymoon last year due to Covid. The redwoods are like nothing else. Our tour guide, Archie, has a wealth of knowledge of San Francisco, Sausalito, the redwoods, and so much more. Not only did he share history and background about San Francisco, he also shared fun facts and incorporated humor in his stories. He was personable and friendly and he drove that tour bus safely the entire time. He also kept us on schedule and gives ample time to visit each attraction so be mindful of the time and you'll enjoy the excursion to the fullest. Thank you, Archie, for keeping us safe and for sharing so much history of the city and for keeping the tour interesting and engaging. The Bay Cruise was also a real treat to end our day with. It's about an hour long and we took in sights of the Golden Gate Bridge, the city of San Francisco, Alcatraz, the sea lions and more. Definitely layer up for this short cruise because it can get chilly on the Bay.

Great trip…but only take it if you are looking to get a lot done in a short amount of time. This is not an excursion for people who like to “dwaddle.” You leave on time and your stops at landmarks are 5-8 minutes. Muir Woods was 75 minutes and not a minute more. Salsalito was pretty but you could barely grab a quickly lunch or visit a shop or two before it was time to go back. The Bay Cruise is a must. So, while I actually enjoyed this and would recommend it, it is definitely not for anyone who has mobility issues or anyone who likes to stop and take their time and look at everything. You get off, you look, you take your picture and you keep it moving.
