Summary: While I am pretty easy to please, I do not recommend this company's tours based on two experiences this week... 1)Woods & Wine Tour- basically just provided transportation, not any form of tour. The driver never provided any narrative or any explanation. Everything along the way was extra. Muir woods, extra. Wine tasting, extra. On the positive side, the... More

Barbara ruined our day. She NEVER told us there were 2 busses and she promised us over and over she would get us to the woods like we were supposed to when she realized her mistake. She never took names on the bus so we were on the wrong bus. She checked us in and I told her we were... More

We used our San Francisco GO cards to book this tour and it turned out to be a great day. Before we even got on the bus, Barbara told us about the $30 per person tasting fee that we could pay and then we would go to 2 wineries. She gave the group the option of going to Sonoma instead... More

We took the day-long tour of Muir Woods and Sonoma. The tour bus herd about 25 people and was comfortable. Water was provided. Barbara, the tour guide, was very helpful and offered a lot of useful and interesting information. Rixos offered us a tasting package for $30 each that would include two vineyards. We did not purchase that package and... More

I booked this tour on viator.com. Barbara was very informative and a great driver. We had to pull over a couple times to cut the bus off and crank back up so she would be in the right gear to pull the hills. She handled the bus like a pro. We only had a hour and 15 minutes in Muir... More

Chose Rixos because it was included on the Go San Francisco card. We arrived at Muir woods early so did not have to pay admission (a nice bonus). Barbara was informative and pointed out numerous sights on the drive. I wish we had more time at Muir woods. Only had an hour and 15 minutes. Tour included 2 wineries, one... More
