Tour/Activity

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour plus Bay Cruise

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Travelled to Muir Woods first which is beautiful and peaceful. It is an easy walk if you stay on the flat walk ways. We saw a few different breeds of squirrels, birds and lizards. The trees are enourmous and the bark a bit unusual. Ensure you are back at the bus before time as buses will leave without you. Our tour guide knew alot about the area driving to Muir Woods and gave us some history of the area. Sausalito is a lovely town. YOu don;t get long there, but you have the option of staying longer and not going back on the bus whcih we did. We had lunch at a lovely cafe, walked into every shop and had a nice walk along the boardwalk. We did not do the bay cruise, so cannot comment

Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour did not start out well. We were picked up from our hotel on time, pciked up other guests and were taken to the tour office. We were told those who were going to Alcatraz to stay on the bus, so we did. Taken to where the boat departs and told to collect our tickets form the the office. Got to the ticket office and were told by the lady at the office, all tickets for Alcatraz tour were picked up this morning. We rang the tour office and they sent a driver to pick us up as the bus driver should never have told us to get off the bus. We wre taken back to the tour office, and a driver took us to meet up with our tour bus. Our mini driver did give us commentry and history of where he drove, so that was good. Met up with the tour bus at the Golden Gate Bridge Park where you get fantastic views of the bridge, bay and Alcatraz. The city tour was very informative and well worth doing. You are able to get off the bus at certain stops to take photos. After the city tour we were taken to the pier where the boat departs for Alcatraz. A smooth ferry ride across, but windy. Alcatraz is an amazing place. Ensure you watch the video which is in the first building, then proceed up the hill. The view of the city are great especially on a clear day. When touring the prison, get the audio - cannot do without it. It get very cold in the afternoon so take something warm.

San Francisco Dinner Dance Cruise

San Francisco, California

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

I had been on a dinner crusie in New York and thought doing a cruise on San Francisco bay would be great, but it wasn't. We arrived at the pier and thought our boar was there. We went upto the gate, but it was boat for a private function. OK, so this boat would be leaving shortly when all the guests had arrived, then our boat would pull in and we could board. But no this did not happen, The private charter did not leave pier until 7.30pm, we were to board at 7.00pm. Our boat finally arrived, thinking great we can get out of the cold wind. No, this did not happen either. We stood out in the cold for another 20 minutes before they would let us on the boat. This was not a good start to the evening. We finally boarded, shown to our table upstairs by the window. Food was average and drinks are extra. Sites and lights of the bay, buildings and Sausalito were great. The band were good, but a bit loud, but hthey got many people up dancing.

Las Vegas Night Strip Helicopter Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Seeing Vegas at night was great and it is the only way to do it. The tour is not long, about 10 minutes, but it gives you an idea of how big the area is. The lights are very bright and it is easy to pick out what hotel is what on the strip, but it also shows you there is more hotels/casinos off the strip. Tour is worth doing even just to see the beautiful lights at night.
