The trip to the Muir Woods was very impressive, the 90 minutes are enough to walk the way through. Still, we would have loved to spend more time between the giant trees. The Bay cruise was a treat with great views of the city, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, Angel Island and Alcatraz.

Perfect to get a first impression of SF. You make a few stops for photos. The driver was great. Before the bus tour, you will receive a voucher for the 1 hour ferry trip including a guide. It was a successful morning

Muir woods is breathtaking. I wish I had a couple of days to spend there. The guide, George, was wonderful and humorous.

Our tour guide was very good. He was quite informative and friendly.

It was great
