Took the Muir Woods/ Sonoma Tasting tour. Paul was our guide. Very much an on -time kind of person - PERFECT! There were 13 people on our tour - road in a Sprinter Van - comfortable . First stop was Muir Woods. As I said, Paul likes to be on time and runs a tight ship. This is great because... More

Needless to say glad I booked two tours with this company. Have since referred a friend that came to San Fran and if I ever have the chance to come back I will take another tour with this company. Brian was our guide two days in a row. Phenomenal as he went above and beyond to make sure this girl... More

A great tour! Made all the better by our tour guide Paul. He was incredibly knowledgeable on the city of San Francisco, the Sonoma Valley, wine making in general and Muir Woods. Lots of energy and a great time had by all! Highly recommend.

I am one that never writes reviews because well I am lazy LOL; however I felt like I had to write one here. The tour was wonderful and our tour guide Brian (I hope I got his name right) was excellent. Very informative and knew a lot about the San Francisco area. He even bought us all chocolate at one...

What an amazing day! Woke up to an early morning start for a pickup at 6am, and was pleasantly surprised to see that our guide Patrick had already been waiting there at 5:50am, so we got a chartered trip to Starbucks for our troubles while we waited for the right time to pick up the second lot of passengers. The... More

I booked this trip spur of the moment and was very pleased with the outcome. Our guide (Paul) was very knowledgeable about anything and everything and he made the drive highly entertaining. Muir woods was spectacular, but do not book this tour if you expect a guided tour of the woods! You pay the park entrance fee and head in... More

We were picked up at the hotel at the appointed time. The van was clean and comfortable. The driver as well as the tour guide was very knowledgeable. He stopped at all best spot at the park, he also gave us enough time to hike and explore some area including the giant sequoia. Great experience and recommended.

If you're looking to spend an ample amount of time in Muir Woods (and an hour won't let you do that!) this is a great tour. We arrived at the woods about 8:50 and had two hours to explore. The morning trip is also THE way to beat the crowds. Our tour guide, Mike was very gracious, knows the area... More

We took the Muir Woods and Sonoma Valley full day tour. The day was the highlight of our SF trip. Our guide/driver Brian was excellent - fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. The morning in the woods was a great way to start, and then we visited 3 wineries and got to sample over 15 different wines. Highly recommend this trip!
