I'd recommend getting to the Alcatraz 'Escape from the Rock' tour early so that you can get a good spot. I'm short so it was hard to get a good view of anything behind everyone. The trip was entertaining and informative especially thanks to our bus driver for the Muir Woods and Sausalito portion.
Great trip,plenty of time on island, beautiful boat ride over, wonderful walk in Muir woods

Our tour guide, Troy was both highly entertaining and knowledgeable. Given that we only had one day to tour three sites; Alcatraz, Muir Woods and Sausalito the tour needed to be carefully scheduled and it was. We would recommend this tour to anybody visiting San Francisco but be sure to book early and take a sweater or something warm to wear on Alcatraz Island regardless of the temperature on the mainland.
This was a very fun tour. My family really enjoyed seeing and learning about Alkatraz, the Muir Woods and Sacalito. All amazing places to visit, we want to come back and spend more time at each. The tour guide was great too.
What an excellent day run by a very professional tour company. The hotel pick up was on time and The Alcatraz tour was amazing and with plenty of time to complete the audio tour and get back to the boat to get the coach for the next part of the tour. Muir woods was something really special with the giant redwoods a real treat. We had a lovely weather day and the driver was great. Loads of information and kept everyone involved as the day went on.
Alcatraz and Muir Woods was one of our highlights, would definitely recommend this tour for everyone, although Sausalito was relatively uninteresting.
Spent 3 hours at Alcatraz, seemed like 30 minutes, if you only do one tour, take this tour.
It was an excellent trip and the Grey Line service was one of high quality and punctuality
This was a great tour. Our driver Troy was very entertaining and knowledgeable throughout the day and gave us tips for each of our stops. Muir Woods and Sausalito are very picturesque places that anyone visiting San Francisco should make the short journey to see. Alcatraz is amazing and a must-do in San Francisco. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
An excellent day trip, Muir woods was very impressive and the audio tour of Alcatraz was fantastic, the voices of the inmates and guards added to the experience
We had a great time with this tour. Transportation was good, the guide (bus driver) knowledgeable and funny. Muir Woods is very beautiful and refreshing, though it is not enough time to walk as much as one wants - we had just an hour to explore. We had lunch in sunny Sausalito. The most interesting and worth part of the tour was the Alcatraz visit. The audio guide was awesome, felt kind of real.
Loved the fact that we were picked up at the hotel...our driver for the tour, Aaron was fantastic...very informative. Muir Woods was beautiful...and the amount of time allocated was perfect. Sausalito was okay...not very much time, grabbed a burger at the recommended spot across the street from the bus stop. Burger was good...the guys working inside were rude (reminded me of the Soup Nazi). Alcatraz was fantastic. All in all, a great trip, the price was great, would highly recommend.
This trip is the only Saving grace that San Francisco has. I LOVED Alcatraz and the Muir Woods! They were both so beautiful!!! The Alcatraz self guided tour was so interesting and the island was so beautiful. Muir Woods was so peaceful, it's an easy stroll down the trail to see the giant redwoods. The "ocean view" at the top of the mountain is deceptive, but the Woods are beautiful. My only complaint would be more time in the Woods. Sausalito isn't anything to write home about. FOR SURE would recommend and would do again!
Coaches were comfortable and on time. The woods were beautiful even saw a fawn and mother dear. The audio tour at Alcatraz was very clear and interesting. Bus drivers very informative, although I would have preferred to have his commentary via a hands free device. Well recommended tour
Excellent. A great, knowledgable and helpful tour guide, Troy, who made the trip even more enjoyable. Muir woods was something had never heard of and would have missed them had it not been for the tour, such a wonderful place. Sausalito is a joy to behold and Alcatraz was just amazing. Thank you.
I am so very glad we decided to book this tour. Alcatraz was an exceptional experience. Our tour guide (I believe his name was Aaron Davis) was just great... really went out of his way to explain the area and injected a nice sense of humor into the trip. Muir Woods was nice to see. I only wish we had a bit more time for lunch in Sausalito. Of course we were there on Mother's Day where every place seemed to have a wait, but I think at least an hour (versus 45 minutes) would have been nice. Super great tour... would definitely recommend!!
great tour, the bus driver/tour guide was outstanding. a very knowledgeable person with a great personality.
tour was awesome! exactly what we wanted and expected would reccomend to anyone tryoing to see the sites of san fran!
