Our Russian guide was very informative with constant commentary on the tour both going to Muir Woods and returning to San Francisco. We think he did a very good job giving us an overview of all the areas we pass through on the tour. Probably the most important part of the tour was the weather - it was perfect. The temperature was in a range of 50 in the morning to maximum of 70 during the day. Everybody mentioned to be careful of your travel dates because the rain and/or fog can change the experience. Perhaps planning your trip around the weather would be important. Also, off season has fewer crowds which makes the experience that much better.

Enjoyed the tour. Our driver was knowledgable and a good driver. The tour was the perfect amount of time to walk the trails and get back to do more in the city.

Very good tour. We had plenty of time in the Muir Woods which were a special experience. We were picked up promptly at the hotel and once we started the tour, we were given a very good narration. Definitely a good choice.

Beautiful drive and Willie was a fabulous driver and tour guide. We spent 90 minutes in beautiful Muir Woods and enjoyed a peaceful scenic ride back to San Francisco. Before returning to the tour office Willie gave us a very nice tour of the nicer areas of San Francisco.

Both the drive to Muir Woods and the 90 minutes we had to hike in Muir Woods were beautiful. The Redwoods are incredible and our bus driver shared numerous historical stories about the areas along the drive and the national park. It was also fun to see parts of quaint Sausalito on our drive back to San Francisco. Our driver was kind enough to ask where each family in our group needed to be dropped off on our return trip. We also used the hotel pick-up which was confirmed via phone the day before and very prompt.

Muir Woods was one of the highlights of our trip, and the driver was well-versed on the area and interesting to listen to. We recommend it if you're looking to get out of the city for a bit!

We had a barely hazy day for this tour, so the bus ride gave endless vistas of San Francisco and Marin county. The road to Muir Woods is similar to an amusement park ride, definitely pays to take the tour bus! Plus the tour bus has special parking spots right by the entrance, parking is at a premium here. As soon as I stepped on the path into Muir Woods, something happened. There is a quiet reverence here, like time slows down a little, and it's easier to take a deep breathe and relax for a minute. The hike was fairly level on pavement or decking. There is a nice gift shop and snack area, along with restrooms in 2 locations. We spent a little over 1 1/2 hours at Muir Woods, then rode down to Sausalito. You could get off bus and pay to ride the ferry back to the Pier in San Francisco, or stay on the bus and return to the Wharf areas.

This was a very enjoyable tour. Tour guide Ellen Josephy is very knowledgeable of Muir Woods and surrounding areas, which made it a very educational and pleasant trip.

My wife and I walked through the woods in awe of the magnificence of our Lord. We encourage everyone to listen to your guides and walk quietly allowing God's presence to be felt. Truly it's an outer body experience to celebrate and to experience. We chose to be dropped off in Sausalito and ate lunch on the waterfront with a great ferry ride back to SF. One of the best days of my life!!!!!

1h drive to the redwoods in a comfortable bus driven by an awesome driver/guide. 1h30 which is enough time to discover the redwoods. An experience that we won't forget! I highly recommend this tour!

Easy journey over to the woods and great introduction to the redwoods which looked amazing. Driver was happy to be flexible and drop us off in Sausalito on the way back, even though this was not part of the tour. He also offered a quick overview of opportunities for lunch and the location of the return ferries to San Francisco. Would recommend this tour with a very friendly company.

Added this tour last minute, but really glad we did. A driver picked us up exactly on time from our hotel and shuttled us to the tour office where we caught the larger bus for the tour--a very nice motor coach. The driver Sylvio was very knowledgeable and friendly. One man became sick on the bus and Sylvio pulled over to get him a bag and make sure he was okay. He also took the non-typical route into Sausalito at the end to make sure we got to see as much as possible of the beautiful town. Once we reached Muir woods we had about an hour and a half to walk around on our own. This was plenty of time to walk the easy path to the fourth bridge then turn around and cross over the third bridge and head back via a different path-plus a restroom stop and to look around the gift shop. Muir woods was a peaceful reprieve from the city atmosphere of San Francisco.We did the 9:00 am tour, and I'm glad we did because as we were leaving more and more people started coming in.

Wow!! This was an awesome half day we spent going to Muir Woods. A highlight of our trip! One thing to note is the road to Muir Woods is very winding and can make someone car sick. I am prone to car sickness but did fine by sitting in the front of the coach bus. Our driver and guide, Willie, was entertaining and knowledgeable and drove very carefully around the bends. Made us feel safe and comfortable. We enjoyed his commentary on the local sites. You get about an hour or so to walk around the park trails. It is a short time but good for those who want a taste of nature.

Really great way to see some redwoods if you're staying in San Francisco. There was lots of time to explore the park and it was a nice and easy short hike. Highly recommend it.

Muir Woods was beautiful. We leisurely walked along the path through the towering trees. I would have liked to have had more time at the park, but overall good experience.
