Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour really packs it in, giving you scenery, shopping and sightseeing all in one whirlwind day. It's ideal if you have limited time or want an overview so you can figure out where to spend more time later.
This San Francisco Super Saver combines two popular tours into one, making it even easier for you to see some of the Bay Area’s top sights.

San Francisco Deluxe City Tour:
On board your tour vehicle, traverse the city to see its most popular attractions—it’s a great way to orient yourself with San Francisco and decide what places you might want to return to later on your own. You’ll enjoy views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco waterfront, check out neighborhoods like Chinatown and North Beach, and see the city’s Victorian homes, the Palace of Fine Arts, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Presidio. You’ll also make photo stops of about 20 minutes each at Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, Twin Peaks and, if there is time remaining, Cliff House overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour:
Drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, heading north into Marin County. When you reach Muir Woods National Monument, you have 75 minutes to explore the spectacular forest of ancient coastal redwoods, some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world. Walk along the shady paths to soak up this tranquil environment.

Back in your tour vehicle, head to Sausalito, a small town known for its picturesque waterfront and main street lined with shops and eateries. You have 30 to 45 minutes of leisure time to walk along the water, browse art galleries or take photos before returning to San Francisco.

Itinerary

Due to changes that the National Parks Service has made to the parking reservation systems for Muir Woods, from May 15 2018 we are unable to guarantee specific tour times to this popular destination at the time of booking. Depending on the parking slots available, the itinerary may be reversed, starting with Muir Woods, followed by the San Francisco City Tour

While we appreciate that this may not be ideal for your trip planning, unfortunately these are circumstances beyond our control and we, like all tour companies, are restricted in the times that bus parking will be available.

We hope that this does not spoil your trip to San Francisco and that you will join us to experience the majesty of the towering redwoods and natural beauty of this world famous historic landmark.

We were only in San Francisco for a day and a half so this was a great way to see a ton of stuff. Our guides were great and extremely knowledgeable. The buses were super comfy and I was very impressed with the skills of the drivers.

Six of our family members on a cruise were booked for this tour. We were supposed to leave at 9:30 and arranged an Uber to pick us up at the pier. Unfortunately, the port had a problem with the gangway, so we weren't allowed off the ship until nearly 10:00 a.m. Since our tour had already left before us, we went to the Gray Line Office in town and explained our dilemma. The person there, although very friendly and apologetic, booked us on a substitute for the morning, a Hop On Hop Off bus so we could find our way to the sights we wanted to see. Our Muir Woods/Sausalito trip was still booked for the afternoon, so we left the office and went to catch a Hop On Hop Off bus. We waited for an hour and although some came by, no one got off, so there were no seats for us. Then we waited nearly another hour, and finally got on a bus, but there were only four available seats up top, so I sat on the bottom, where I could see nothing because of the window covering down below. This bus took us to the Golden Gate, let us off, and then we had to get another bus going back into town. We got to see very little, where the original Super Saver tour we were booked on included a city tour. It was our first time in San Francisco, and we were very disappointed. At the bus stops, we saw about three times as many Hop On Hop Off buses run by other companies, but our tickets were for Gray Line, which were few and far between. We did go to Muir Woods and Sausalito in the late afternoon, and this was a wonderful excursion with the most knowledgeable driver/guide ever ,but the morning was a waste of our time and money. I will never recommend the Gray Line HopOn HopOff to anyone visiting SanFrancisco. I've been trying to contact Viator to inquire about a refund, but have been unable to do it online, so I will be calling them. I do highly recommend Muir Woods and Sausalito.

The drivers were both good and friendly. There was plenty of time at each stop to see and do anything we wanted to do. We did this tour our first day so we could decide what to do the rest of the trip. Greg (city tour) recommended several places to eat and they ended up all to be great. Definitely get the clam chowder at the Cliff House! The Sausalito trip was not worth the stop.

It was a good experienced. Our tour guide Randy is very accommodating and entertaining. He got a lot of tips on places to go to eat, what is the best restaurant, etc. The Muir Woods experience is the best. Totally recommending this tour.

The tours were great especially the Muir Woods. Taking both tours on the same day was a bit much and I would split it into two days.

The tour itself was good you get to see a lot of the city and Muir Woods is amazing but I found the organization of the tour to be very poor compared to other tours I have taken throughout the USA and Europe. We were told we would be picked up from our hotel at 8 am - the bus was 20 mins late I understand that it happens sometimes but a call or text would have been nice as we waited outside in the cold for 30 mins and were beginning to think we were going to miss our tour and the bus was completely different colours from what we were told to look for green and white vs blue and grey. You're then dropped off at the main office the tour does not start right away after the hotel pick ups. It was absolute chaos at their main office in the morning where all of the tours depart from with people and buses everywhere and nobody tourists or the people working seemed to know where to go. There was no stop at Golden Gate Park as indicated in the description just a drive through it. Also important to note that it says it is an 8 hour tour but the tour started at 9 am and did not end until 7 pm we had expected to have more time to ourselves in the evening. You return to the main office and switch buses and guides between the city tour and Muir Woods tour which we were not expecting. Both of our guides were very good however our guide for Muir Woods had a strong accent and it was difficult to understand him, particularly as he was speaking through a microphone on a moving bus which was unfortunate as he was a very nice man and very knowledgeable. Overall I'm glad we did the tour as it allowed us to see a lot in one day but I would not book this tour again knowing what I know now.

the day of the tour we discovered it was actually two separate tours so had a break in between. We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge each time and travelled some of the same city streets. Because of that, we spent more time on the bus than we had expected. Each of the guides were knowledgeable and shared interesting stories and information. The tour showed us the varied areas of the city . This was the perfect way to see Muir Woods - no worries about driving the winding roads or parking. We could have skipped the Sausalito stop. It was late in the day and very overcast and cool outside. there wasn't enough time to do more than walk the street.

The city tour was great, I have been on it many times before as we come here once a year. Traveling with friends I convinced them this was a must as it covers everything. As always the tour was great,e were gifted with a sunny morning and Antoine took us to several great spots to see the bridge. Loved the Muir Woods tour what a wonderful miracle one hour out of the city. Saulslatio pretty but would prefer to speed shorter time there. Joe our driver was very informative, kind enough to accommodate everyone, but seasoned enough to keep everyone on time making the trip especially nice.
