    Perfect way to spend a morning! Our tour guide Silvio was fantastic! Learned so much about the history of and current day San Fran and fully enjoyed the quick stop at the bridge, the gorgeous Muir Woods, Sausalito and then took the optional Ferry back to the wharf from Sausalito with amazing 360 views and a close up view of Alcatraz. It was a morning very well spent.

    The drive was beautiful and Muir Woods is absolutely gorgeous so happy we did this tour! We were allowed enough time to walk around and take in the beauty of the woods. There is a nice Visitors Center, a Snack Shop, and clean Restrooms. Our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgable, informative and accomodating. At the end of our tour we drove through Sausalito, my son and I choose to get off the bus in Sausalito and walk around the town, then we took an evening ferry ride back to San Francisco at sunset - it was an absolutely gorgeous evening.

    Good once it got going.

    Good trip to the Muir Woods morning is defiantly preferable to evening I think as it seems to get busier during the day. However the tour on here offers hotel pickup which is not actually the case, the company who actually runs it say you can call them in the morning of and they will get you an uber but only if you ask prior in the end it all seemed like too much hassle and we just made our way down the the wharf ourselves. The actual tour from then on was great though. Also they say you can’t get Uber’s to and from Muir Woods as you don’t get reception but my partner and I both had reception fine while in the park, it’s only the entrance it’s a bit sketchy, which if we had known we would have saved some money and done that.
