Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It was a great day. We went on a whole day tour to Yosemite park. Our driver Phil text me the day before to make sure we knew the time and he was on time in the morning to pick us up. He even walked around at a scenic point and was helping all the couples by taking their phone and making sure they had a picture together. Phil knew so much about every stop and when someone wanted a bathroom he told them where the cleanest one was. Use this company for a tour and you won’t regret it. Thank you Phil for a great time.

    A great way to spend the day.
    The tour guide is very knowledgeable providing us with stories and history along the way. The wineries are worth visiting. But it would have been nicer if more Introduction of the wine production process can be introduced during the winery visits.

    While visiting Yosemite was a dream come true, this tour was made extra special and memorable by the tour guide, Rob. From the start of the early day he brought such a bright, warm, and engaging energy that got us all excited for the days adventures. He was a wealth of knowledge about San Francisco, the surrounding areas, and Yosemite - I learned so much in just one day from him. He expertly and safely drove us through the daunting (but beautiful!) roads up to the park. His great sense of humor, genuine desire for us to all have the best trip possible, and attention to detail to making sure we got to see all of the best views and sites made this trip better than I could have ever imagined. It was my first time doing a trip like this on my own and I’m so glad I had such a friendly tour guide in Rob. The park is gorgeous and a must see, the day is jam packed with so many incredible things to do and see, and it’s super convenient with the hotel pick ups and drop offs. I’ll happily take an extra nominal tour again especially if Rob is the tour guide!

    We really appreciated Don’s expert driving, his anecdotes from growing up in San Francisco, and the history of the city. Learned a lot. Muir woods is very special and beautiful - not to be missed. We liked getting to see the Napa and Sonoma Vineyards and wine producers.

    A great, well organized tour! Originally our tour was due to start at 9am however this changed to 8:30 but we were notified well ahead of time. Our tour guide (Grady) was friendly and very knowledgeable about Muir Woods and the San Francisco area.
    It was nice to learn more about the history of San Francisco.
    Muir Woods was beautiful. We were there for 90 mins and found that was enough time to walk around. There are hiking trails to do if you have more time.

    Excellent tour, Muir woods exceeded my expectations and would recommend wholeheartedly. Wine tour proved enjoyable and seeing Napa Valley the home of some great wines was a bonus.
    Marco, who guided the wine tour proved to be excellent.

    Only thing keeping the rating from being a 5 is the fact the bathroom didn't work in the bus.
    Well worth the money.

    These were 2 separate tours. Morning was San Francisco city tour and afternoon was Muir woods and Sausalito tour.

    Its a good way to explore the places in a short time. I liked both legs of the tour though Muir woods was better as we could explore the places on our own.
    San Francisco city tour was basically about driving around the city and stopping for a few photo stops. One can take this half day tour to get an idea of the city and then explore on their own.

    Guides were courteous in both the tours.

    Beautiful calming place to visit, great vision to protect this area for future generations.Kids we’re taking back by the slice of the trees- and how old the Forrest is.- we did the half day trip as time wasn’t on our side but there are a lot of tracks and trail to be seen that would have been nice, so recommended day trip if your into a walking trail- take a lunch and just enjoy the calm.

    The thing I didn’t like was that it wasn’t enough time spent in Monterey only 1 hour and 45 minutes but given that while he was driven before he got to the stop to let us off, that was unfair to me that needed to be adjusted some more time in Monterey then Carmel. Overall I love the trip and the scenery
