This was a great experience made by our guide Josh. Included in the tour was a view of some highlights around San Francisco, a photo stop to view the Golden Gate Bridge and ample time to walk in among the red wood trees.

Our driver was Dalilo. He was excellent - very informative. He made a quick photo stop at the Golden Gate Bridge which was appreciated. We drove on to Muir Woods and it was great to park right at the Visitor Centre where the walks begin. We had a full hour and a half to wander amongst the magnificent redwoods. He then took us on to Sausalito where I left to have fish and chips, check out the town and then catch the ferry back to Fisherman’s Wharf.

This was a fabulous trip! We wanted more time at both places! The guide was very interesting and a safe driver (which was important!). Beautiful, all around. We took the optional Ferry back to SF. Whereas the schedule for the ferry was hard to decipher, it was a wonderful ride back when we finally got on. The extra time in Sausalito worked well, also!

Awesome half day, made it a full day by getting the ferry ticket back, and spent the extra time in Sausalito. Well worth it!
• Submitted 21 Nov 2019
This was a really nice, short, trip. The visit to the bridge gave ample time to snap photos and there was enough time at the woods for a 4 mile hike. We took advantage of the optional ferry back and it was a wise decision as we spent some time wine tasting and eating in Sausalito.

The drive to Muir Woods and the park itself are a "do not miss" when visiting San Francisco. Our bus driver was the best, very knowledgeable and a pleasure to listen to.

This was a good tour . Not too long to get there . Really amazing red woods . Good tour guide . We are not tour people . This was great because you don’t spend to much time in one place . One hour in the park . An hour in Sausalito . Perfect . You end up back at the pier or back at union square where you were picked up .

The Tour to Muir Woods and Sausalito was wonderful, we greatly enjoyed ourselves. The bus driver was very informative and friendly. The bus itself was very comfortable.

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.

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.

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!!

Loved seeing the redwoods and the waterfront dining options were great in Sausalito. Nice to have the extra time in Sausalito by taking the ferry back. Our driver Thomas was very friendly and knowledgeable.

We were lucky in the sense that the traffic out from San Fransisco was light so there were no major delays in getting to the park. The time we had at the park was more than enough to make the longest round trip hike (up to bridge 3 and back via the ridge trail). The visit to Sausalito was a bit bland in the sense that there was no guiding there. The ferrybtrip back to San Fransisco was nice though

Outstanding tour consisting of 3 parts ... 1) Muir Woods was just beautiful and the 90 minutes allotted was just the right time, 2) Sausalito was beautiful with nice restaurant choices and nice shops to visit, and 3) the ferry ride back to San Francisco was outstanding with the views and all. Recommend this tour to evceryone!

Really enjoyed this tour, driver Joe was very friendly, helpful and informative, Muir Woods were amazing and he suggested an easy walk for the time we had there, Sausalito was OK found a nice pub and walked around the gift shops, then fought with the cyclists to get the ferry back to San Francisco.

This was a great tour. I booked online for the 1pm tour but it actually left at 1.45. This was no problem for me, but dont book anything after tours in case there's a delay. We had 1.5hrs in Muir Woods which was a perfect amount of time to walk around (and visit the gift shop!) The woods were gorgeous, definitely worth seeing. Getting to Sausalito was quick, I took the ferry back at 6pm. I would recommend the ferry for a great scenic route back, it was a lovely ride and getting off at Pier 1 leaves you closer to the city. (The bus left Sausalito at the same time and the driver said it would be about 30-45 mins to get back to the office.) My driver was Trina, she was lovely, fun and very informative. Would definitely recommend this trip for a day out!

Our driver Tatiana was very informative and made the bus ride entertaining- she navigated the roads to the woods very well in spite of all the curves and turns - the Muir Woods was breathtaking- something everyone needs to see - loved Sausalito- would of loved more time there - definitely recommend this tour
