Our tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and very amusing. Kept us entertained throughout. Well worth it. I also recommend the ferry trip back from Sausalito to San Francisco. We were lucky to have beautiful weather and excellent views of the Golden Gate Bridge. All in all an excellent tour. The Woods of course speak for themselves! Not enough time spent in them is the only downside of the day.

The pickup was a little confusing because we were transferred from another company. Other than that, the bus ride was informative and comfortable. We stopped to see the bridge, had plenty of time in Muir woods, traveled to Sausalito where A Bar With No Name was our favorite. We chose to take the ferry back and landed on Fisherman's Wharf. Great day trip and priced right.

Marco did a great job as our guide. Just a heads up though, the tour advertises hotel or vicinity pickup but they only have Two pickup points in the City (Union Square & North Beach). We had to walk 30 minutes to catch the bus by 8:15am. If you are unable to walk distances you will have to pay for an Uber.
