We were lucky in the sense that the traffic out from San Fransisco was light so there were no major delays in getting to the park. The time we had at the park was more than enough to make the longest round trip hike (up to bridge 3 and back via the ridge trail). The visit to Sausalito was a bit bland in the sense that there was no guiding there. The ferrybtrip back to San Fransisco was nice though
Outstanding tour consisting of 3 parts ... 1) Muir Woods was just beautiful and the 90 minutes allotted was just the right time, 2) Sausalito was beautiful with nice restaurant choices and nice shops to visit, and 3) the ferry ride back to San Francisco was outstanding with the views and all. Recommend this tour to evceryone!
Muir Woods was beautiful but we only had 1 hour to eat in Sausalito. Problem is, the restaurants are all sit down establishments. No quick food. So we opted to take the ferry back. The ferry was nice but an additional $26. Soooo, when buying your ticket, buy it with the ferry ticket included.
Really enjoyed this tour, driver Joe was very friendly, helpful and informative, Muir Woods were amazing and he suggested an easy walk for the time we had there, Sausalito was OK found a nice pub and walked around the gift shops, then fought with the cyclists to get the ferry back to San Francisco.
This was a great tour. I booked online for the 1pm tour but it actually left at 1.45. This was no problem for me, but dont book anything after tours in case there's a delay. We had 1.5hrs in Muir Woods which was a perfect amount of time to walk around (and visit the gift shop!) The woods were gorgeous, definitely worth seeing. Getting to Sausalito was quick, I took the ferry back at 6pm. I would recommend the ferry for a great scenic route back, it was a lovely ride and getting off at Pier 1 leaves you closer to the city. (The bus left Sausalito at the same time and the driver said it would be about 30-45 mins to get back to the office.) My driver was Trina, she was lovely, fun and very informative. Would definitely recommend this trip for a day out!
Our driver Tatiana was very informative and made the bus ride entertaining- she navigated the roads to the woods very well in spite of all the curves and turns - the Muir Woods was breathtaking- something everyone needs to see - loved Sausalito- would of loved more time there - definitely recommend this tour
To begin, in researching this tour, the Ferry ride was stated as 2nd best ferry ride in the USA, so we were excited to add that to our Muir Woods/ Sausalito tour. Our tour guide on the bus was extremely knowledgeable about San Francisco and Sausalito and did a fantastic job! He added humor here and there, so it was a fun ride to the woods. Muir Woods was a great experience, just visiting nature and seeing those magnificent redwoods. Sausalito is also a quaint little village, a tourist spot for sure, with all the little shops and restaurants, but the scenery was beautiful! When we boarded the ferry ride back to SF, it was nothing more than a boat ride. We expected a tour guide sharing the history of Alcatraz and the areas around, but that was not the case. Just a little disappointed in the ferry portion of the ticket. We would have learned more about the area had we returned on the bus with our tour guide.Otherwise, the Muir Woods/Sausalito Tour is great, just don't add the ferry ride unless you just want to ride a boat.
Muir Woods a must! The Forrest really is incredible. Going over the Golden Gate bridge just added to the amazing day.
Tiana was an excellent guide. She was also a great driver, which really matters on this trip! Tour is essentially an introduction to Muir Woods and brief visit to Sausalito. That was perfect for us this trip an looking forward to longer visits to each in the future .
Enjoyed this excursion! Loved the ability to ride the Sausalito Ferry back on our own. Muir Woods is beautiful. The park limits time there now because of the crowds, but we felt like we had enough time to see it!
Everybody should have the opportunity to visit this attraction to appreciate nature at its best. Saucilito was beautiful and the ferry ride back to San Francisco was great.
I initially booked this trip for transportation to Muir Woods and Sausalito, but certainly got a ton more! Our tour guide was super friendly and very informative on various parts of San Francisco. Learned more on this tour about the city than the Bg Bus tour taken the next day! The bus was comfortable and we stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge lookout before proceeding to the windy road up to Muir Woods (if you get car sick, you may not want to go). Again the tour driver pointing out various neighborhoods along the way and their history. You get a good amount of time to explore the woods, we were able to complete the four mile hike in the allotted time. After hiking we rode to Sausalito where we were able to get a cold beverage and snack before heading back to San Francisco. The only drawback was that traffic was horrible that day going across the bridge, so the tour was longer than expected. The tour guide tried to make the best of it by getting us to interact and lots of good humor. Would definitely recommend!
We decided to take this tour on our last full day in San Francisco! I am so glad we did! While I loved the quaintness of Sausilito (and the ice cream was delish), Muir Woods was definitely the star of this tour! Pictures simply can not do God's creation justice. The mere size of the trees and the beauty all around left me in complete and total awe! If you love nature, then Muir Woods is a must see!
I enjoyed seeing the Woods. The trees are enormous. We need to protect for future generations Not sure why the review must be 100words or more
The bus was very hot. Even after multiple requests the driver wouldn't turn up the volume of his microphone. In addition he was more interested in talking about what he had done, instead of giving history of what we were seeing or going to see. Muir woods was beautiful. Guide d bus trip not so much.
We’re on a trip with our 2 sons. This place is amazing! The trees are amazing in itself having lived over 800-1000 years old. Trails were fairly easy to walk without tripping. I only wish there was more time to go thru the whole park but we were on a time limit on a tour bus.
Lovely walk through the woods. Would have liked more time in Sausalito as its a beautiful town. Really only time to grab a bite to eat before leaving. Did not really get to see the town.
Family trip. Wish we had a bit more time in Sausalito. Driver was funny and knowledgeable / was perfect amount of time for Muir Woods
This was a great trip from start to finish. Not only was the driver/tour guide warm and funny he also was an excellent driver, I felt very safe on the narrow roads to the woods. Muir Woods were fantastic, so beautiful and special, I will definitely visit them again. I recommend the ferry ticket back from Sausalito so that you can stay for as long as you like. I had a great meal overlooking the bay and took the ferry back as the sun was going down. An incredible day. Well organised and delivered. Thank you
I’ve been in the Muir Woods/Sausalito tour once befite but this was the best experience ever. Greg was knowledgeable and an extremely safe bus drvier. I don’t know hiw he managed it all, but he made it a great trip for all of us!!
Infomative, punctual and entertaining, Vlad made for an excellent tour guide for our family. Took the ferry back from Sausalito to have more time there. Great recommendation for lunch at Napa Valley Burger Co. Highly recommend both the tour and the lunch!
Perfect combination tour!. Muir Woods was more beautiful than expected. No cellular service there so be prepared. More than enough time to see and savor everything. Sausalito was nice as well but I wish we spent more time there to eat and shop. Our tour guide and driver Vlad was informative and offered great suggestions on places to eat and things to do.
Driver was very informative and friendly. Suggest to get the ferry back to fishman’s wharf so that you can get back at your leisure after lunch.
It was an amazing experience in the Muir Woods. The redwood forest is simply breathtaking. A must visit if you are near SF.
Our tour was great. We had more than enough time to explore the woods as well as grab something to eat in Sausalito. Vlad was our tour guide, and he was super knowledgeable about where we were headed but also very funny. He also made great recommendations for food in San Francisco and Sausalito. I would recommend this tour and Vlad to anyone.
Vlad was a tremendous guide and talented driver. His excellent insight and ability to get us from place to place quickly made it a truly wonderful trip. Highly recommended!
A great half day tour. Parking at Muir is poor so this one combined with the ferry return is a nice half day ending up at Fisherman’s Wharf.
just enough time for us to see the redwoods and grab a quick lunch after in sausalito. if you want to hike and then sightsee, book a longer trip.
visited the Redwood trees of Muir woods and Sausalito on half day trip, really enjoyed the experience, had perfect amount of time to do all we wanted, the guide was so friendly and helped pass the time on way to the woods with interesting facts about the woods and through San Francisco, told us the best places and ways to see both the Redwoods and Sausalito in the time we had, and stopped for 10 mins to get pictures from ovre the Golden Gate bridge which we did not expect but appreciated, nice treat and a worthwhile experience
Bucket list, amazing experience. Went with my 7 year old and she loved it. We had a great time and will visit again!
My husband and I very much enjoyed Muir Woods. We had a great burger in Sausiltio. I enjoyed the bus ride, the trees, the shopping.
The guide was outstanding, gave informative and interesting facts of the area and locals. Made a unscheduled stop at the golden gate area to take a picture, the day was sunny and not cold so it made it all more worth it. My niece and nephew (teens) were very happy with our last day in San Francisco.
The tour was definitely more than worth the price! It was a magical experience in the woods, with only the sound of the creek and the wind in the trees. Our bus driver gave great commentary while driving out of the city on San Francisco's history and paused for us to take photos of the Golden Gate Bridge. I opted in for taking the ferry back to Fishermen's Wharf from Sausalito, instead of the bus, and I would highly recommend that! Great view from the bay of the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge and the cityscape.
