Our tour of Marin County with Elizabeth was fantastic! Touring with Elizabeth was like spending a very informative and casual day with an old friend. She is a native of Marin County and knows its history, current environment, and all of its great people. This is a great way to get to know an area close to wine country and San Francisco in a very relaxed way. I highly recommend spending a day with Elizabeth. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with her!

This tour is AMAZING. Elizabeth takes fabulous care of her guests and because she's such a part of the community, you really feel like a local when you're in Point Reyes Station and touring all of the different food shops/facilities. We ate so much and so well that day. We had fresh pastries, freshly baked bread, chai, Cowgirl Creamery cheeses, burgers and sides, sparkling mead, and raw and barbecued oysters. My girlfriends and I were celebrating a baby shower while the other couple on the tour was celebrating their 11th anniversary. I would highly recommend this tour for any special occasion and or simply for a lovely day out on the coast. 5 stars!
