This tour was so much more interesting than I thought it would be.Alcatraz is an experience that should not be missed.The Redwoods are a phenomenal site,and Sausalito is beautiful.I highly recommend this tour.
The tour was fantastic. Muir Woods was beautiful and Sausalito was a nice quick shopping stop. The tour operator/driver was wonderful! So knowledgeable and engaging. He made it so interesting and informative. Alcatraz was simply awesome. I loved the audio tour, it really made you feel like you were in the experience.
My only complaint is that we were expecting a big comfortable coach bus and instead we were taken in one of the smaller shuttle buses. Otherwise a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
Busy day but very good. This trip not to be missed. Staff excelent.
This trip was wonderful. One thing to know about this trip is that it is actually two separate events. The Muir Woods and Sausalito trip are a half-day excursion hosted by the tour company. Muir Woods is beautiful and we had a very nice and relaxing walk. Sausalito is a very quaint town, where our lunch was delicious. Our driver, John, was very knowledgable and helpful. After the Muir Woods and Sausalito portion, we were dropped off at the ferry terminal where we caught the Alcatraz ferry operated by the National Parks Service. The ferry times are very specific, so it is important not to miss the scheduled ferry. You need to be there at least 30 minutes before the scheduled ferry time. As a caution, it is helpful to bring bug spray, such as Off, to Alcatraz, as the flies are annoying. The bug spray seemed t help. Alcatraz is very well done and the audio tour is excellent. After the tour the bus picked us up and took us back to the tour company office and then back to our hotel.
Highly recommend this tour. We had a great day. Muir woods is beautiful and a must see. Alcatraz was amazing to see and Sausalito is such a pretty place. We would do it all over again!!!!!!!
The tour to muir woods was very interesting and a lovely place to take in the nature. and Alcatraz was so good there was and old inmate there when we went and he was a very interesting character its a must see tour and having it done by the experts made our trip so much easier
I'll sum it up in a nutshell, If you are planning a trip to San Francisco, this trip is a "MUST DO".
The trip was AWESOME! Our driver, Archie was extremely knowledgable and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour.
Aaron was a great guide. He was on top of things, any questions were answers and he wasn't bothered by interruptions. He gave us tips at muir woods, about what to see and if we were walkers to get to the hill side once we hit bridge four. When we stopped at Sausalito, he gave lunch suggestions, I probably had the best burger at hamburger. Since we were on time, he took us to see the Golden Gate Bridge. He then took us to Alcatraz and told us if we wanted to stay longer at the piers, how to make it back to our hotels.
I would highly recommend this tour. The only thing I would improve on is to allow for more time in Sausalito.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to San Francisco.Due to the parking problem, this tour saves you a lot of time since it takes you to the entrance of the Muir Woods.
Out standing trip. Handled the volume of people with ease. Our tour bus driver to Muir woods and Sausilto was outstanding. WE wish we had more time in Sausitlito.
Very impressed with "everything right on schedule"!! Organization and trips were great. I suggest grab lunch at the Spinnaker in Sausalito. Everything was great. But I must say what made the day long trip was tour guide/driver TROY. I can't believe there is a better man for the job. He is a valued employee !! Entertaining and very knowledgeable. Many thanks to Troy.
Great tour. The guide , Adolpho really made the trip with his humour and knowledge. The bus ride to Muir Woods was great , especially when we saw how far away the cars had to park. Some had a 2 mile hike just to get to the entrance. Alcatraz was fantastic. Highly recommend the audio tour. Overall , great value , we saw a lot even on the bus ride.
Great Better than what we expected. The tour bus driver to Muir Woods was the best. Wonderful sense of houmour
We had a great day on our trip. It was a nice mix of nature, relaxing and sightseeing!
It was fantastic. We had a very nice and fun chauffer. He was a very good guide. The Muir was awesome and Sasolito was fantastic cause it was sunny and the view over to San Francisco was very good. We had also a stop at the Golden Gate bridge before the smog was coming in from the sea.
This was a great tour....we enjoyed all three destinations. Great value for the money
Troy our tour guy was just great for the Muir woods and Suasalito parts of the trip. all well organised and just a day well spent.
