Muir Woods tour was exceptional. Our driver gave us interesting fun facts on the way to Muir Woods. The Muir Woods were fantastic. You could go at your own pace and enjoy. Sausalito was a beautiful city. Very clean and quiet

The woods and the park are beautiful. It’s well worth a visit. However, don’t use this vendor. They were 45 minutes late. The tour operator had all of us standing on a city sidewalk and kept telling us “any minute” which was a complete lie....More

It was the perfect tour because it leaves a ton of time for other things. The driver was pleasant and provided great information about San Francisco and other areas. Decided to finish in Sausalito and take the ferry back, definitely recommend doing that.

I took the ferry back across the bay. Blue and gold ferry as tickets were given out by tour guide as included in tour. Fantastic views of bridge and front view of Alcatraz

I didn't see any whales on our way back and really doubt you will. The captain did not say anything about whales. Yes, better for you to book a whale watching trip separately because their captain/crew are whales experts.
