Driver Michael explained the sights and the city perfect and as first time visotor we felt that we got a perfect overview on the city. Afterwards Alcatraz and then Pier 39 on our own hands completed our day.

This was a great 3.5 hour tour to see the highlights of the city and get a running lesson on the history and culture of San Francisco. George was knowledgeable and well versed in the nuances of the city. Well worth the money!

"Muir Woods / Sausalito"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 22, 2019 NEW
This tour was fantastic, and our driver even more so! He was very knowledgeable and funny. We got to stop on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge and take some pictures before heading to the National Park. The only thing I wish was different is that the tour was longer. More time in the woods and more time in Sausalito. By the time we made it to Sausalito we had 10 minutes to board the ferry back so there was no time to explore or do anything in the city. But if I had to do it again, I absolutely would. Well worth the money, both with the tour and the ferry ride back.

"Muir woods and cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 11, 2019
The tour was amazing the right balance between informative and encyclopedia. The cruise was not what I expected at all, I thought I was getting an hour long cruise around the bay but got a commuter ferry instead. The redwoods made up for the lack of cruise (which was still great and good for seeing the bay).
