Muir Woods is awesome, tranquil and majestic. The hop-on hop-off bus was very convenient. The drive to/from the woods was a bit harrowing... the roads are narrow, twisty and challenging so I was thankful someone else was doing the driving.
Sausalito is very cute with great restaurants and shops.
You get some history of San Francisco, get to see Sausalito and the redwoods. Very nice tour.
Well organised. Stop at vista point enroute to take pictures of city. On time, great driver, very informative highly recommend
The tour was good, my only complaint would be the amount of time between drop off and pick up. I was picked up in Sausalito at 12pm and we arrived in Muir Woods 1245, the next scheduled pick up wasn and #39;t until 4pm in Muir Woods. Over 3 hours!! I ended up taking the public bus back to Sausalito. :(
it was a little confusing where to meet the bus in the beginning as the shop had relocated. The tour was very informative and had a great time.
Muir woods is beautiful! we missed our morning bus but could catch the bus of 11 am. All the buses were on time.the ride was very smooth and serene.The only thing i didn't like was the narrators. they were saying history of San Francisco, golden gate and Muir woods in a way as if we are 4 year old kids watching a live theater.it was way too loud and dramatic to enjoy. no one laughed accept the narrators themselves. 60 of wat they said was about robin Williams! I wish they gave us some silent moments to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Trip to Muir woods was very good. Excellent tour guide. Transfer to Sausalito fine. Then bus pickup to Fisherman's Wharf buses were not on time then discovered that the bus did not go directly to Fisherman's wharf but dropped us off on the south side of Golden gate bridge. Had to catch another bus that took us back to the north side of the bridge then wound its way slowly back to fisherman's wharf in heavy late afternoon traffic. The Company had an poor and unreliable transportation system for this trip. 2hours late getting back. Very frustrating. ,would not do this again or have anything to do with this company's tours again.
When i booked this tour i thought that the entry fee to muir woods would be included. Really it was an expensive bus trip.. wouldn and #39;t do this tour again . Muir woods was great though.
We took this tour for the main point of getting to Muir Woods and back and it did fulfill that goal. However, it was very hit and miss with quality and poor directions for boarding the bus. We thankfully scouted out the bus pick up location the day before our tour. The address they provide had nothing there that indicated it was the loading point for the tour. While we were standing there looking for a sign a bus pulled up and we were able to confirm the pick-up point with the driver. We returned early the next day and found that we couldnt use the confirmation I had printed outwe had to go to building a block away and have tickets printed. Thankfully we were early. The bus we had was not a double decker. It was partially under cover and partly open. The bus was ancient and in very poor condition. You couldnt even sit on some of the seats they were in such disrepair. Our driver was somewhat informative but his presentation was a bit maniacal and very unprofessional. He did provide us with a very good tip about picking up the Hyde/Powell cable car one block up on North Point instead of waiting in line at the turn around. We followed that advice and were able to get right on without waiting. The tour description included a phot stop at the Palace of Fine Arts. He never stopped. We were picked up promptly for the return trip which took us to Sausalito. Our driver said a double decker bus would be picking us up in Sausalito to take us back to SF. He said that they were the only company that was allowed to have double deckers in Sausalito so it would be easy to spot. This was not the case as another companys double decker showed up almost immediately. When we finally boarded the correct double decker back to SF on a very nice bus we had the worst driver ever. He didnt provide any information on SF spending his time talking about his mother, Taco Bell and singing songs. I would not recommend this tour service in San Francisco at all.
