    This was part of my first trip to the USA after wanting to visit all my life. So I booked this visit for whilst I was in San Francisco along with another tour with Gray Line. The tour was very good and I loved Muir Woods as it is beautiful. We had 90 minutes in the woods as part of our trip. It is definately worth a visit. The driver was also our tour guide and he was quite amusing and entertaining. We also visited Sausalito which was also beautiful. We also stopped at the Golden Gate bridge and as you can imagine, this was wonderful. We were here for about 25-30 minutes which is enough time for photo opportunties.
    The tour bus itself was nice, a little smaller than the other one I had used a few days earlier, but was great, clean and comfortable. It did arrive a little bit late but didn't take away too much time. Overall, I enjoyed the tour and enjoyed the sights, views and fresh air! I will also add some photos separately.

    Our tour guide, Ross, was incredible and super knowledgeable about Yosemite. We got to see a lot of great sites, including waterfalls. It was a fun-filled day!

    Well organized and informative. Enjoyed every bit of this experience. Bird expert added to information, nice people everywhere, (too many flies), beautiful gardens and we had perfect weather that day.

    Enjoyed the history and facts of Alcatraz. The boarding was well organized. The departure was chaotic and definitely not organized.

    Very handy to get around San Franscisco and probably worth it alone just to go over the Golden Gate Bridge. Stops at all the major sites and makes seeing SF quite easy.

    Areas for improvement - The stops weren't overly obvious. Make sure you remember where the bus drops you off. The map is on your phone which is a problem when you're on roaming data and paying through the nose per MB. The tour isn't very personal with poor quality headphones which kept cutting out. Other tours I've done like this have had a tour guide on board but this was just pre recorded audio.

    It would have been helpful to have an itinerary for the trip prior to starting the trip. I had no idea what the plans were for lunch and dinner - if we are going to stop somewhere or if we needed to bring our own food. Waiting almost 2.5 hrs for a rest stop could also be improved.

    We had such a great time sailing along the bay and under the Golden Gate bridge. The views were spectacular at sunset. Amazing photo opportunities and the crew were fantastic, even gave us jackets to keep warm. Highly recommend this cruise.

    Rolando (Ro) was an incredibly funny, knowledgeable tour guide that made our day tour super fun. We saw a lot of great sites, and had the opportunity to take some amazing pictures.

    The van is extremely comfortable and clean. The tour is great and James allows adequate time at the spots to see the sights and get a coffee. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable! We had an excellent day and enjoyed the small group.

    This was a great experience. I decided to try this tour after experiencing their awesome beer walking tour. I have been going to wine country for over 20 years and this by far was my best wine tasting experience. I didn't have to drive and I was able to experience great wines from off the beaten path wineries that were very good. The wineries are much more relaxed, funky and fun than the wine factories on Highway 29. Not slagging on those wineries, but this tour is totally fun and chill.

    Amazing trip. Loved that it was a smaller group. Guide was very helpful with tips handing out maps etc. highly recommend. Just the right amount of time to explore the Valley and do a short hike.

    A really fun way to see the city and learn a lot about it - all in a couple hours! Our guide Armando not only shared information with us, he really made an effort to get to know our group which made for a fun and lively tour. There is no air in the van but it was a nice cooler day with a breeze so we did not mind. As we were a full tour, it was cozy in the van but not bad for a shorter city tour. I don't think a full day tour would be as comfortable though which is part of why we opted for a two hour one. The afternoon tour also included alcohol which was a nice addition. While I enjoyed all the stops and the route we took, the best part to me was getting to go down the twisty portion of Lombard Street. Definitely a fun experience! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the city in a memorable and unique way!

    This tour was perfect for my sisters bachelorette party! Recommended to us by some friends and it did not disappoint. Marc was a wonderful and gracious host. Funny, lots of knowledge and great recommendations for places to eat and drink. The three stops on the tour had delicious and interesting wines-- and weren't pretentious at all (ya never know with wine people)! Will definitely recommend Edge of the World Tours to anyone visiting San Fran!
