We just took this tour last week, 4/4/19, and loved it. Our first exposure to giant Redwoods- I liked it that they limited the cars being able to park up there, so the tour bus was great, and the driver was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Would highly recommend this Viator tour for young and old.
He was humorous, knowledgeable and was a safe driver on the curvy uphill roads. Forest was beautiful and calm. Gift shop and coffee shop was a nice touch for the ride home. Take the ferry in Sausalito if possible for great pictures and memories.
Awesome trip would recommend it to anyone who likes to hike! It was well worth the trip. I’d definitely recommend the tour , driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. Tour operators at the office were friendly and would use this company again. Tower Tours thank you.
I went on this tour with my daughter, and it was worth seeing. The driver/guide was excellent and told us much info. My issue was that I either misread or didn't understand the description. we spent 1 hr and 40 minutes in Muir woods and drove through Sausalito. I prefer to spend 45 min to an hour in Muir woods and get off the bus in Sausalito for a bit.
Even though native of San Francisco found entire tour very informative and helpful, driver/tour guide experience was quite evident. very enjoyable. Felt very secure and safe throughout drive from and return to San Francisco. Would recommend to family and friend.
We book this tour for our stop in San Francisco on a cruise and we're very happy with both the company and the tour itself. When we book the tour offered hotel pick up we inquired about how we would go about meeting the bus to the woods. Within an hour we had received an email back with directions to the office from the cruise terminal. It was about a 10 minute walk from the location of the ship.We had originally book this tour for 3 individuals but about a week before the tour one member of our party found out that he could no longer attend, so we sent in a request for our reservation to be modified and for a partial refund for him. Within 12 hours we received notification that our reservation was updated and a refund was put on our credit card.When we got on the bus for the tour we're pleasantly surprise that our driver (Willy) gave a tour/information of the city on the way to and from the woods which was about 40 minutes each way. We had about a hour and half at the woods which was enough time for us to do some of the trails and have some time in the gift shop.
It's what I expected from the tour perspective, however I did not like that the people who were picked up took all the good seats even though they did not have their tickets to get on the bus for the Muir Woods. We sat all the way in the back and almost had to split up on the seating my wife because of that.
