Let me start by saying that Randall was LOVELY! You can really tell he has a passion for tourism and making sure his clients are extremely happy! The tour was great! We were very happy with the span of time at Muir Woods. Happy to see it along the way to the vineyards! The Vineyards that were chosen were very nice with some pleasant wines to choose from. I would probably skip the "gourmet" lunch for this tour. The restaurant was nice, but I'm sure there were better options in the surrounding town. There were towns of restaurants to chose from! Lastly, the bus we travelled on was clean and overall comfortable except for the fact that it is desperate needed new shocks. I got tossed around like a rag doll in the back regardless of the seatbelt. It was a VERY bumpy ride. Not Randall's fault since he isn't responsible for the California Highway System, but that bus could use a bit of a tune up to fit the standards of Randall's top notch services!

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. We got to see and enjoy a lot of things in our limited time there. Jason was an amazing and very entertaining tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

This was a long day, but it was broken up well. We had great weather and got to visit a winery in Napa and two in Sonoma. It was not busy, so the wineries were very liberal with the samples. We had 18 people on the tour, so it wasn't too big, and Ben, our driver/tour guide, was entertaining. We really enjoyed to stop at the end to see the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco at night. Great pictures.

This tour was excellent! The start of the tour to Muir Woods was a great way to get started, and our guide, Roman, did an excellent job of filling everyone in on what to expect, and gave tips on how to make the day more enjoyable. He was great!!! The tour through wine country was especially nice, touring some of the smaller local wineries which made the tour much more intimate. We took the wine train tour the next day, and we enjoyed ourselves more on this tour.

Had a phenomenal time exploring the three wineries. The only negative of the trip was the motion sickness from the bus ride to and from the Muir Woods so if you suffer from that just be prepared for that. The woods were interesting. It was cold so it kind of ruined the experience but nice views. Wineries were great, around bus driver Ben was great, and the people on the bus (about 33 of us) were great. From old to young, we had a good time together.

My husband and I were in San Fransisco for a quick visit and had Saturday to venture out into the city. Found the bus tour with wine country and Muir woods combo. I am so happy we chose this route. Didnt have to worry about anything. Great tour and we would recommend to friends and family.

This tour was unbelievable. Shoutout to Jason who kept us informed and laughing the whole time. What an incredible day and tour. Highly recommend!

Our Guide was amazing!!! She made the tour very enjoyable. Very caring and funny lady. Unfortunately, I am really bad with names...I believe it was Kim ...a petite blond lady. Also she was a great driver. The Kieu Honang winery was very best...most educational and fun of all. It was nice getting into the vineyards and tasting the grapes on the vines! The young man making the presentation did great job. While I loved Muir Woods and the outdoors...I thought this park was where the huge Sequoia was that you were able to walk through. I guess this was in another part of San Francisco. All in all it was a very enjoyable tour (Gourmet lunch was very good).

The trip was exactly what we were looking for. Enough time to walk around Muir Woods and see Red Woods (and complete a decent 2mi loop) as well as a beautiful ride through wine country. We had great weather for the day and the rolling views were great. We did have a few rowdy people on our trip which made the rest of us miss some of the guide information, but otherwise a great trip that ended with some beautiful pictures of the Golden Gate.

My daughter and I went on the Muir Woods and wine Country tour on October the 1st. Our guide (sorry I forgot his name) was really interesting and funny, We were impressed by the tall trees, the wines were excellent. and the scenery great. I highly recommend it!

Fantastic tour and tour guide. Well paced, informative. It has some structure bit also allows for free time to explore.

Our guide Dustin was great - very good natured and informative. Most in the group was very engaging - we had a lot of fun getting to know each other. Muir Woods was fabulous - so interesting and beautiful. The three vineyards were diverse in the visits, which was interesting. And seemed everyone found something they liked. I also thought the VIP lunch was fabulous - great group and excellent food and wine on offer (plus a little time to explore Sonoma). We had some traffic on the way home but Dustin was up-beat throughout. Highly recommend.

Jason was amazing and knowledgeable about San Francisco. The tour was pleasant, enjoyable, and plentiful for the tasting. I truly recommend this tour. Ask for Jason as he is an upbeat guy who keeps you going!!!! :-)

I really enjoyed the trip: Muir woods was a nice start althougt we didn't have much time there, it was okay. Winerys were fine, some of them better. Wine was excellent! We had cca 11 samples which is enough. The break for the lunch was quite short but I get why. But I wouldn't be so amused if it wasn't for our tourleader Kimberly, she was amazing!

While visiting San Francisco we decided to take this tour. It was wonderful. The beauty and smell of Muir Woods is amazing. Visiting the wine country was a treat. Great trip.
• Submitted 02 Oct 2019
The food and wine were good, the tour guide excellent. Visiting the Muir Woods was a delight. I would even prefer a 1 to 1 ratio of park walking to winery visits: park, wine tasting, park, wine tasting!

What a great time !!! Came to SF to celebrate my nieces b-day....Muir Woods..wish we could have spent a little more time there...was beautiful !!

Very nice couples' trip between the woods and the wine tasting. No need to spring for the lunch, there's plenty to eat nearby. Randall did an excellent job and got us a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge at the end of the tour.
