Beautiful day trip
Victoria_H, May 2024
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.
Amazing experience!
Gita_P, May 2024
Amazing experience and the tour guide brought a positive vibe! Defo do and experience the woods and the ride!
As advertised, recommended
James_D, Apr 2024
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.
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.
Cheri_W, Mar 2024
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.
A great tour
Jennifer_D, Mar 2024
Lester was great. Gave us lots of information on the way to the woods. Definitely would book again. The weather wasn't great but it made the experience in the woods even better!
Great tour guide
Lori_C, Jan 2024
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.
Time Considerations

Lester, our driver/guide, was very funny and charming. He really set the tone for a fun tour. Muir Woods itself was majestic and absolutely beautiful. It was the best part of our trip to SF. **Something to keep in mind if you’re on a schedule: this tour is longer than the booking description by over an hour because it’s not a drive through the town as advertised, they actually stop in Sausalito for 30-45 minutes on the way back to SF.**
Linda_B, Jan 2024
James, our tour guide. He was amazing, friendly and very informative. We enjoyed the stops and all the views.
Rain and Fog didn't keep us away, thanks to Lester!
VivianR_B, Jan 2024
LESTER!! He was an exceptional guide! It was a very rainy day and the fog was dense, so we couldn't see much. However, Lester kept us entertained with SF history and fun facts. More importantly, he was a very skilled and safe driver. He took his time navigating the way to Muir Woods, which were majestic! Thanks to Lester, the rain and fog didn't keep us from enjoying this trip!
Muir Woods is a must see.
Lee_S, Jan 2024

Amazing experience to Muir Woods with tour guide Gredy. His knowledge of the place as well as his calm demeanor makes him a good choice as a guide to narrate.

Wonderful experience

We had a wonderful time. Our driver, James, was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. The woods were magnificent. Could not have asked for a better experience. I 100% would recommend it to anyone wanting to really experience San Francisco.
Lester was a legend
Andrew_W, Sep 2023
Super experience but not a lot of time. The hot chocolate was great though and I’d recommend the chipmunk
Muir Woods must see
