The Muir Woods portion was excellent. The Hop On Hop Off part was terrible. The audio wasn’t working for the tour so we missed most of the history and explanations. Our bus broke down on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The workers did nothing to assure that those on the bus had priority on the next busses. We missed our dinner reservations.
