    I found the Muir Woods Tour after a quick search on the internet. So I made contact with the operator, who answered really fast and booked the trip in a few minutes. On the day of the trip, a nice driver took me and the group on a bus, starting from Fisherman's Wharf until finally arriving at Muir Woods. I had a good time in that wonderful place! Beautiful trees and a remarkable trail were the highest points of that trip. Good job guys! Hope to see you soon next time I travel to SF.

    Good tour. Only criticism is that I would liked a little more time in the park. An hour and 20 minutes didn't seem like enough to me.

    The bus driver Alex was very nice and could really talk about the sites. The ride was fast and the only issue I really had was the air conditioning was really not cool enough it was very muggy on the day of my trip so more cooler air would of been nice. I think it was a good way to see muir woods.

    Our trip to Muir Woods was great! Patrick our guide was very good at making sure everyone got to meet each other on the trip, we had a smaller bus in this case and there only 10 of us on the trip. He was very knowledgeable and made it all very interesting. I would recommend this company and if you get Patrick as your guide it will be great!

    Great day. The ride over The Golden gate bridge was wonderful, with a view of the bay and Sausalito. Our driver made it that much better. He was prompt, courteous, informative, safe and funny. The Redwoods are spectacular! followed by time in the charming to of Sausalito. I highly recommend this tour!

    I called spur of the moment early morning to find an activity for that same day & the representative got us in at the last minute on a Muir Woods Tour. A nice charter picked us up at our hotel. Our driver was great - friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The woods are beautiful and easily accessed due to the improvements made for visitors. There's a nice little cafe, gift shop and restrooms at the beginning. Seeing the extremely limited parking situation at the site, I was so glad we opted for the tour. They drop you off right at the gate & pick you up there. Honestly, not much more time would be needed than what is offered by the tour. It was a great option for seeing the giant redwoods.

    This is a great tour. We only booked for this Muir Woods Tour and ended up getting off at Sausalito. I am so glad we did. This really ended up 3 in one for us as the ferry trip back across the bay gives great views all round. The Woods are gorgeous and Sausalito is such a pretty little town. Our tour guide was the best, nothing was to much trouble, he was so funny and informative and such a gentleman. The only suggestion I would make is giving visitors more time at Muir Woods, making it at least 2.5 hours instead of 1.5 hours. We are so glad we experienced this tour thank you.

    Beautiful spot, the trees are awesome. A little disappointed when driver said he would only stop in Sausalito for about 10 minutes. Glad we decided to take the ferry back. Sausalito is a beautiful town, good little restaurants. Nice break from the busy style in San Francisco. Muir Woods is gorgeous and a must see.

    Great tour, the guide picked us up at our hotel in a very modern, comfortable van, at the designated time, and was a wealth of information from that point on. We proceeded to Muir Woods, again, the guide gave us so much information, about the places we were passing, and all about the redwoods. We had an hour and a half to walk through Muir Woods, just enough time to explore. We opted to leave the tour in Sausalito, have a nice dinner and ferry back. This tour was one of the highlights of our San Francisco trip!

    We had a wonderful experience with the tour company, Tower Tours. The driver was very knowledgeable on the area and the ride up to Muir Woods was enjoyable. Upon returning, we had asked the driver for directions to the cable cars. He not only dropped us off after the tour, but also gave us good advice to avoid waiting in line for an hour and a half. As we only had one day to spend in the city, it was wonderful to have the tour guide give us great advice. I can't say enough good things about the tour company!

    What a tranquil and beautiful part of the world. Close enough to SF for easy access and accessible to all ages and abilities. The paths are well kept and do not detract from the natural beauty. My wife and I followed this up with lunch in Sausalito and a ferry ride back to San Francisco across the bay. A great day out. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

    A very good trip. Weather was cold and cloudy, and it's even colder in the woods where the trees block the sun. Our tour drive tried too hard with "interesting" anecdotes and an attempt at humor, which I found annoying after a while. His accent made it difficult to understand. Another half hour in the woods would have been nice (and why the driver says you have to have lids on hot beverages if you bring them on the bus but the concession stand doesn't provide lids for littering reasons makes no sense.)

    Booking was quite easy, was picked up right in front of our hotel. Driver was friendly, bus was clean, the ride was good. Only complaint, not enough time at Muir Woods. We drove through Sausalito but did not stop, which was fine with me. He did stop at a scenic pullout above Golden Gate Bridge which was awesome.

    Loved the Muir Woods and wish there was more time to spend there. Did not get to visit Sausalito though; driver just left some passengers there to take the ferry back. Had thought we would get to explore the town for a bit before heading back to San Francisco. I thought the driver was entertaining and informative.
    Response from the Team
    Thanks for your review. The bus enters Sausalito only to drop passengers who have purchased the ferry return option. Guests wishing to spend time in Sausalito should purchase this option.

It was very convenient for us to be picked up at our hotel (which was in the San Francisco Airport area). An hour and a half was just enough time to explore Muir Woods. It's really beautiful. You also have the option of getting off in Sausalito (another beautiful area) to have lunch or go shopping. The driver was willing to drop us off at a BART station so we could catch the train. Thanks for making it so convenient for us!

    We had a great day, the giant redwoods are awesome and a "must see" when in San Francisco. It is a nice drive out and Sausalito is a quaint little place with lots of great places to eat. Would suggest going on a quieter day to really appreciate the Woods in silence. Our coach driver was very professional.

    In general the experience was good with the driver providing an interesting narrative as we made our way to Muir woods. It was sufficient to give one the motivation to come back to visit more in depth. 1.5 hours is not enough to fully benefit from the experience. A better way would be to take the ferry to Sausalito and a shuttle from there to Muir woods. This would allow for individuals to adjust the lenght of their stay to their personal liking.

I think his name was James, but he told us to call him "Driver." :) He surprised us and let us make a quick stop at Marin Headlands on the way back because we left for the tour early. I would definitely take a tour with your company again the next time I'm in San Francisco.

    Picked me up from the hotel exactly on time, and after a short bus change at the office we drove off. A 10 minutes stop at the golden bridge observation point and then directly to Muir. We had 90 minutes there. I think an extra 30 minutes can be helpful in order to hear the ranger 15 minutes explanations and to walk the full circular walk up to the forth bridge. The nonstop explanations from Mike (?) the driver where very interesting, informative and fun. we were back in town at the time promised. The woods are very impresive and buitiful.

    My wife, daughter and I had a great experience with GuideYou on the Muir Woods Tour. Although we planned to reach the GuideYou offices on time, we got delayed by a few minutes. We received a friendly call and our driver waited patiently for us. Once we were in the bus, he gave us a running commentary on the different types of trees we would see in Muir Woods - he shared knowledge of superior quality; and kept us engrossed throughout the ride to the location. A most memorable afternoon!

    Hi there, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I was collected on time at my hotel by our drive, George, who was polite and courteous. He gave a great commentary on some of the major sights of San Fran on the way to the woods, and also translated into Spanish for 2 other passengers. The woods themselves are literally breathtaking. It's a little haven away from the craziness of the city. I loved the peace and tranquillity in some parts of the woods and the trees themselves are just beautiful. The paths are easy to walk and are well maintained. I wish I had more time to explore. I've attached a photo, however it doesn't really do the woods justice! I highly recommend taking this tour, one of the best parts of my stay in San Fran

    A little gem of a place outside of the bustling city of San Fran. The woods are quiet and tranquil, the trees themselves graceful and majestic. We had a lovely walk through these woods and were just wowed by them. The tour was also managed expertly and efficiently and the bus driver extremely knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining!

    The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area, courteous and accommodating. He provided much information about San Francisco, Sausalito and Muir Woods. I opted to return by bus, so was not able to walk around Sausalito, which would have been nice - and the only drawback to the tour.

    I don't usually enjoy guided trips. The last one we took in Hawaii was a total disaster, so we were pleasantly surprised by the knowledge of our bus driver/guide, and appreciated the time that we were allotted to enjoy the Woods as well as the Golden Gate Bridge, and still avoid the worst of the traffic. I would certainly recommend to SFO's visitors.

    The tour was well arranged and the staff at 'Tower Tours' were helpful. They even arranged a special conveyance from downtown to our hotel when we turned up a bit late for our drop off to the hotel. The driver of the Muirwood bus did a good job as guide also.

    The tour guide was SO knowledgable and very friendly. He talked the entire ride there and back! I don't remember his name (he had white long hair). Muir woods was beautiful and it was nice to ride through Sausalito. I would suggest having maybe an hour stop in Sausalito to accompany the trip.

    Great tour. I picked this tour because they allowed for the most time in the park, 90 minutes.

  • Posted May 16, 2013
    Loved it. The Guide, John, was excellent and full of information and so entertaining. The trip to Muir Woods in the mini-bus was super, especially over the Golden Gate Bridge. The time allowed in the park is adequate to do a short walk and admire the wondrously tall Redwoods. We would have liked a little more time, but I guess on a day trip only so much time is allocated. On the drive to Sausalito John was entertaining, but also provided interesting facts and figures. We left the tour there to spend more time in Sausalito and took the ferry back to SF at our leisure. To summarise, yes, its a very good trip to do, to see and hear some of nature, and its so close to the city!

    This is my third time to visit Muir Woods and Sausalito. And every time I have the privilege to repeat the experience I get more and more admired. The tour was very well guided by an enthusiastic, educated and well informed person. He went far away to help each of the tourists to their final destination and assisted those willing to return by the Bay Ferry. Sausalito is an experience by itself. It is a dream place located in one that is possible one of the best panoramas in the world. I wouldnt doubt one second to repeat this and more tours with Guide From Buenos Aires, Argentina

The tour bus driver was excellent. He was funny and kept us entertained. Over all, it was highlight of our trip in San Francisco.

    Posted Mar 25, 2013
    Almost perfect. Perhaps because we spend 1,5 hours in Muir Woods, the "sausalito tour" was very short. 10 minutes is not enough. Nevertheless, doesn't matter. Just the experience of walk across the forest of redwoods pays the trip. Sausalito it's nice, but it's not necesary.

    Great experience! Our guide, Harold, provided a lot of really interesting information, and his voice sounds like Garrison Keillor. Such beautiful, majestic, serene redwood trees.

    We enjoyed the tour very much. The drivers were courteous and interesting. It was described as 3.5 hours, and we were on buses from 1pm to 7pm (to and from Union Square). Traffic does slow down the travel.
    Response from the Team
    The free hotel pickup and drop off does add some transit time to the front end and backend of the 3.5 hour tour but most guests find this preferable to the expense of a taxi.

    Tour Guide was great. Tour was good though i thought there was a stop and wander in Sausalito. Muir Woods was one of the most awe inspiring locations i have ever visited in North America and found myself (after walking around for an hour) just sitting at on a bench and looking at the trees and contemplating life. Hard to explain unless you go yourself. Would recommend this trip, i'd go again and take more time.

    Muir Woods is an impressive sight with Redwood trees standing as tall as 200ft. Nice and relaxing tree 'talk walk', with plenty of picture taking. We did the tour which provided us more than enough time to walk the main trail. The kids enjoyed the trip and the trail walk/talk as well.

    Muir Woods was really great our driver was funny albeit a bit corny but funny and poetic the only quibble i have is that as i wasn't able to stop in Sausalito to catch the ferry back due to the fact i was leaving that night is that perhaps at least we could have made a stop not for just the ferry goers but a chance for souvenirs and a few quick pictures of the beautiful views.

    I feel that this was a bit rushed. We were practically speed walking to try to get to the bus on time. The same with Sausalito. If you want to do this, try a longer time frame so that you are not speed walking the whole entire time and so that you actually get to enjoy your time. Both places were very nice. The routes were scenic. The guide was nice, funny, and took us to an amazing spot where we were able to take an awesome picture with the Golden Gate bridge.

    Super experience, as the redwoods are simply stunning. A couple of minor annoyances stopped this being a 5 star experience, however: - we were seated right at the front of the small bus, and were under the speaker and the audio commentary (though entertaining) was DEAFENINGLY LOUD. Seriously, it felt like our ears were ringing when we disembarked. We asked the driver to wind it back a bit but he seemed reluctant to turn it down too far for risk of not being heard in the back - the ferry back is surprisingly costly at $9.75 and you're supposed to be able to have the option of a return trip by ferry (at a reduced rate) - this was not available for us Sausalito is a bit touristy and boring/noveau riche, but the ferry ride back is pretty cool.

  • Posted Aug 21, 2012
    Wonderful and affordable tour experience. Our driver for the tour, was also the one who came to the hotel and picked us up. He was fantastic. He joked with us and provided us with very interesting information about the local area the whole time we traveled to and from Muir Woods. Not to mention he didn't race through the curvy mountain roads like some of the other buses we saw going to and from Muir Woods. My gf and I left the tour at Sausalito to take the Blue & Gold Ferry back to SF. I highly recommend this tour for everyone visiting the SF Bay area.

    Thanks for your review. After much customer feedback the tour was altered this year so guests had more time in Muir Woods. The option to return by ferry is intended to allow for more time in Sausalito.

  • Posted Jul 30, 2012
    This was a nice way to see Muir Woods. Some folks think an hour and 15 minutes is too short, but I felt it was fine. The pick up at the hotel was on time and convenient. The pick up driver gave us a "tour" of the route to the Beach St HQ. It gave me good ideas for dinner and places for coffee. The check-in was efficient and we were on our way with a nice driver/ride guide (Lynn) in a clean comfortable small bus. He had interesting info on the creation of the park and the land around it. He stopped at the Fort for pictures of the bridge on the way back. Because the Muir Woods doesn't have a lot of information on the trees and no rangers unless you're lucky to see them, I would have liked more information on the biology of the trees, but I also like the Science Channel.

    What a fabulous tour. Our guide was charming, knowledgeable, charasmatic & funny. Muir woods was beautiful.

    I love this tour and the tour guide who is very entertaining yet knowledgeable to inform tourists about the places we are going. Muirs Wood, Sausalito. History, some interesting stories. Nature, plants. The only drawback is limited time. Can't possibly walk all the bridges within one hour and 10min in Muirs Wood. Probably more time. The same with sausalito. Noon time is lunch time, so you have to eat which will take almost 45mins then time is up to go. No chance to go shopping. I wonder whether there will be tour to Mt Tamp? Would like to go with tour too.

    The tour was good-- it was a minibus, which was much nicer than a large tour bus, and the tourguide engaging and full of facts (even though he was fairly new and the facts seemed more disjointed and memorized than knowledge) The tour left barely enough time to enjoy Muir Woods or Sausalito- I recommend staying in Sausalito longer and taking a ferry back. It's a quick overview, but not a real discovery. Also, the pick-up from hotels to then wait in line at the tour office again was a bit of a pain.

    We enjoyed our trip very much. Our guide, Rich?, was very informative and cordial. I would have liked another 1/2 hr. at Muir Woods. Sausalito was kind of boring.

    It was good, BUT I thihk that the guide must go with the group inside the park giving explanations, and not send them alone.
    Response from the Team
    Thanks for your feedback. Private tour guides are only allowed up to the entrance of the park. This is to ensure that multiple tour guides are not talking over each other and disrupting the peaceful enjoyment of all guests. However once inside the park there is a visitors center are rangers available to answer questions.

    Really great day out and an excellent and informative tour guide but we could have done with 1/2 an hour longer in the woods and Sausalito should have been at least 2 - 3 hours long

    It was a great trip, but the time in Muir Woods was a little too short. There was no "tour" of Sausalito as such. Basically we were shown where to go to the toilet and where to meet the bus.
    Response from the Team
    Thanks for your feedback. Sausalito is a small town and the stop there is for personal time to shop and take some pictures of the views. Some guests prefer stay longer in Sausalito and taking the ferry back to SF is a great option to extend the visit.

    The process of ordering tickets and checking in was smooth and simple. Our guide was very good, knowledgeable, and interesting to listen to. my only regret is the amount of time we had in muir woods. I would have liked much longer than an hour. Billi Chapman

    We had a great trip to the Muir Woods and Sausalito. Our tour guide Tyrell, or T as we called him was a great tour guide! He was so entertaining and knew so many things about the area. We are from Alberta, Canada. Below is a picture of "T" skipping rope just before our trip. He was great and I would highly recommend him and the Guideyou tour to anybody who was interested in doing a tour of the Muir Woods and Sausalito. Great experience!!

    Our driver Curly was excellent with info and quite humorous - did a great job! I had plenty of time to see what I wanted, and the optional ferry back to the Wharf was perfect!

    Loved the tour! Think I learned more about redwoods and Sausalito than I had learned from living in Marin County for 5 years in the 60's. Highly recommend this tour-great picture opportunity.

    This was an awesome tour of Muir Woods. The redwoods themselves were awe-inspiring in many ways, while exploring Sausalito was a fun, short experience. Our tour guide himself was literally the best guide I have ever had on a trip. Charles Hightower cannot be recommended highly enough, both as a very knowledgeable guide on the tour areas, but also as an extremely, personable, warm and hilarious guy. We were both smiling and laughing throughout our entire ride experience. Thanks for a great tour.

    The Muir Woods Tour/Sausalito tour allows guests to take in the Park highlights. GuideYou also offers a Muir Woods/Wine Tour with extended time in the woods.

    We had a wonderful time on this tour. It was the highlight of our time in San Francisco. I would advise everyone to squeeze this into your itenerary. We had a wonderful tour guide and outstanding trip. Muir Woods is just spectacular and the quaint town of Sausalito is just peaceful. Highly recommended!!!

    August 4 2011 i turned 21 when to live it up in San Francscio ..I loved the tour i took i had never been anywhere and to have experinced things the way i did when i was there, i would love to go back and take a few more tours. it was fast and fun and there was plenty of room in the tour bus. the driver was super friendly and informative about where we were going and what we would be doing. At the muir woods i had a great time seeing these huge trees i have never seen befor and for me working in the field of trees it was a great experience im really glad i took this tour i would recomend it and have recommend for people to do when they head up to San Francisco the seniery was awsome i almost didnt want to leave but i knew we were going to head to another awsome place and we did we went to Sausalito which was nice but im out doors kind of girl so it was alright.. over all i had a GREAT TIME and would love to go back some day when i can save up some more cash :) HAVE FUN EVERYONE

    Enjoyed the tour but the temperature on the bus was quite uncomfortable, very warm. The driver was fabulous, George, he did a great job.
    Response from the Team
    Kathryn, Thanks for your feedback. The drivers will usually adjust the temperature if a guest asks.

    The scenery at Muir Woods was quite a site to see. I think it would be favorable to share the weather conditions. While I was dressed comfortably in polar fleece, many others were under dressed and very cold. Can a blurb be added to the tour description? However, I wished we had more time to walk around and had seen more of Sausalito. I felt like we just didn't have enough time there. Our tour guide was okay. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder about something. He shared a story about knowing Robin Williams when they were younger. I don't know if it was his intent or not, but he sounded bitter when he told the story.
    Response from the Team
    Anita, Thanks for reminding visitors to bring a jacket. We recommend dressing in layers - the SF Bay Area is known for its "climatic diversity".

    I was to be collected at my hotel 1pm on the day of the tour. I sat in the lobby till 1.20pm until i received a call from my son to say that the bus had called for me but that i had missed it. The only way that i can explain this was that i was on my way down from my room when they called at the hotel, all i can say is that they did not wait very long or try very hard to locate me. I told the porter when i came down that i was waiting to be collected and he did not mention anyone looking for me.Because of this i then had to get a cab which cost me $12 on top of what i paid for the tour.However the tour itself was very enjoyable and the driver/guide was excellent. He gave us plenty of information and history about Muir Woods and Sausalito . Apart from the mishap at the beginning of the tour i would book a trip with the company when i hopefully return to San Francisco next year. Regards Anne O'Connor
    Response from the Team
    Anne, Sorry to hear your pick up didn't go smoothly. Fortunately this doesn't happen frequently. But despite the mishap it sounds like you really enjoyed the tour. If you are waiting longer than a few minutes past your designated pick up time, we recommend that you call the tour operator. The bus is usually still in the area and can swing back by to pick up guests.

    The trips to Muir Woods, Giant Redwoods and Sausalito Tour was very good. The tour guide was funny and informative. The trip was comfortable and safe, as well. Learned a lot that we would not have known if we had not gone on the tour. Good experience.

    We had a wonderful tour and a fantastic tour guide who shared a lot of history of the area for us. The driver did a great job, especially around all the bicyclists. Thanks for a great time.

    The tour was excellent, well worth the money. Our guide Silvio was the best - very knowledgeable and incredibly entertaining. We would do it again!

  • LEE,

    Enjoyed our tour but was very disappointed in that our time was cut so short in Sausalito... didn't even have time to explore... Too bad as that was what I was really looking forward to.
    Response from the Team
    Lee, Your feedback is valuable. For more time in Sausalito guests should consider taking the ferry back to San Francisco. Not only is there more time for exploring the town (which really is charming) but the ferry ride is relaxing and scenic as well.

  • David,

    Enjoyed the Muir Woods tour, but not enough time in Sausalito.
    Response from the Team
    David, Thanks for your feedback. Taking the ferry back from Sausalito (rather than the bus) is a great option as this allows guests more time on their own for shopping, dining and picture taking.

    Our Tour Guide way Tyrel, (sorry if I spelled your name wrong!) and he was wonderful! Gave us great information on the bus ride, and did a good job of keeping things fun with his stories. He did a fabulous job! Would definitely recommend this tour to others!

    The tour guide Lee was great, the bus was clean and the seats comfortable,,,but the length of time spent in Muir Woods was simply to short. I would recommend that part of the trip be at least 3 hours. charge more for it and it would be worth it.
    Response from the Team
    Glad you enjoyed the tour. Muir Woods is a spectacular National Monument with over 500 acres of forest. The Muir Woods portion of this tour is intended to cover the basic highlights. However we do offer other Muir Woods tours which allow for more time to explore the giant redwoods.

  • Darlene,

    Thought the tour was great and our tour guide was not only knowledgeable but entertaining. Muir woods was beautiful and the trails were just the right length for us. Sausalito was so nice we opted to take the ferry back instead of the bus so that we could enjoy a relaxing diner overlooking the water.
