The only to see the redwoods - It was as so convenient to enjoy this natural treasure without trying to find parking and the long drive from the city. We had a great time at the forest and then our trip to Sausalito. We upgraded to a ferry return in the San Francisco Bay to Pier 1, a great array of upscale food kiosks. Jimmy,our tour guide, was informative and amusing

Beautiful! - Definitely Muir Woods itself which was beautiful and serene. JFK did a skilled and entertaining job of guiding us and driving the challenging twisty route.

Beautiful day trip - An early start at 8.30am but worth it. The tour driver was funny and knowledgeable. The woods were stunning. We also bought tickets for the ferry, well worth the extra price as it was a sunny day and the views as you cross the water are lovely.

Wonderful - I would definitely recommend this tour 100% Our driver Lester was wonderful and shared so much interesting facts about different locations throughout our drive. Muir Forest was amazing , it is wonderful and amazing. Sausalito is pretty there are shops, restaurants and views . I recommend Sausalito Tacos great food, service and atmosphere. If you’re not pressed for time take the Ferry back, this gives more time to explore and enjoy your experience. The ferry ride to the pier provides so many photo opportunities, I took some of my best pictures of the Golden Gate bridge. Enjoy!

Ecology Reminder - Traveled from the Midwest with my two grandsons and Muir Woods was a great historic adventure from San Francisco. They got a kick out of our guide Patrick as much as the majestic setting!

Great family experience. - Loved seeing Golden Gate Bridge, having 90 minutes at beautiful Muir Woods and seeing Sausalito. Mr. Brown, our driver was very informative and helpful. Had our 15 and 17 year old with us and they loved it too.

As advertised, recommended - Pickup directions were clear, and the your was as described. Driver was chatty, but mostly entertaining. Muir woods was cool. Sausalito was ok. Wish there was some options to spend a bit more time at both, but I thought the tour gave enough time to get a feel for each.

Great tour guide - Our tour guide was really great. Maybe Pat? He remembers everyone by their state.. A bit loud but otherwise likes his job for sure. Muir Woods was nice and the ferry from Salsalito was nice too.
