I gave this four stars only because we wish we had longer to walk through the woods. The ease of getting to and from the woods via shuttle was excellent. We liked buying one ticket for both activities, Muir Woods and hour boat ride. I'd definitely recommend.

Viene pubblicizzato audioguide e brochure in lingua: niente di tutto ciò! Scordatevi l’italiano, tutto in inglese e se l’autista parla un po’ di spagnolo buon per voi. Le audioguide ci sarebbero se avete scaricato la loro app e avete voi la connessione internet poiché sul bus scordatevi che ci sia la Wi-Fi. Questo per Muir Wood, per la crociera nella baia (qualunque tragitto diurno) ci sono audioguide con registrazione in molte lingue incluso l’italiano. Buono il pick up in hotel ma sappiate che sono escursioni su bus da 50/53 posti con passeggeri di tutte le lingue, non sono escursioni da piccoli numeri. Sausalito è stata solo di passaggio per lasciare chi avrebbe preso il traghetto quindi dimenticatevi una visita dedicata alla deliziosa località

Der Ausflug zu den Muir Woods war sehr eindrucksvoll, die 90 Minuten sind ausreichend, um den Weg durch zu spazieren. Dennoch hätten wir noch gerne mehr Zeit zwischen den Baumriesen verbracht. Die Schifffahrt in der Bay war ein Genuss mit tollen Aussichten auf die Stadt, die Golden Gate Bridge, die Marin Headlands , Angel Island und Alcatraz.
