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.

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.

We booked the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour with the ferry return on December 27th. It was a classic rainy day in the bay. We used Spot Hero to reserve nearby parking which was super helpful in keeping the logistics simple. The bus trip and tour guide were fine and we were able to tour Muir in the mist; beautiful spot, easy walking. It was pouring in Sausalito but the town is fantastic and should not be missed. The ferry ride back was peaceful. Overall a great day.

The bus driver was very knowledgeable. The redwoods at Muir woods are amazing. Sausalito is a very nice town. The boat ride is a ferry ride and not a sailing trip but you get a great view of the Golden gate bridge and Alcatraz. You can also pick up the boat at Fisherman's wharf but if the wharf is crowded, it might be nice having peace of mind by having tickets ahead of time.

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.

Great day trip to make the most of a weekend. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was great to see different sides of SF. Make sure to take snacks and some water, our trip started early and we were very hungry by the end of it. It was nice that our last stop had lots of restaurants.

Plenty of photo ops (for the good stuff) and short enough to not wear you out for the whole day. The guide made it easy to know what to expect (time spent at each stop, where/when to meet back up). I wish we had more time at the muir woods stop though, it's not enough to see in just an hour and a half.

Muir Woods was delightful and serene.

Unfortunately, our voucher for the bay cruise was not honored. Several other guests had the same problem too. Was not able to stay and enjoy Sausalito as we had limited options for getting back on the ferry with the Blue Angles event.

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!
