Very interesting Tour, excellent guide

We are very happy we decided to visit Muir woods. It is a spectacular forest, a once in a lifetime experience. Michael, our guide was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge of this place, which he shared with us. It was overall a great experience!

Arrived late, not guided
Suzanne_V
, Aug 2022
Our driver arrived 45 minutes late to pick us up and no one from the tour company contacted us to let us know they were running late, we were worried we had been scammed. We called the tour company multiple times and left messages and no one called us back. Called from a different phone and did not leave a message, they called back immediately. He told us he would contact the driver but then never called us back and didn't answer the phone when we called. After finally being picked up we started our journey. This was advertised as a guided trip, our driver barely spoke a word driving through SF and when he did speak , no one could hear him other than the person sitting in the front seat.

Great tour offering, but poor tour guide
Sandra_C
, Jul 2022
Muir Woods is absolutely wonderful and everyone should get to experience this amazing natural beauty. With that said the tour guide ruined what would have been a great experience by running really late, not being forthcoming about what to expect when asked about a realistic timeframe, and blaming other passengers on the tour for his own tardiness. The tour is listed as pick up at 1:30 from the hotel and last for 4 hours (5:30 end?) I received text that we would be picked up at 1:40 or 1:45 which would have been fine but we were finally picked up at 2:15. Before boarding the van I asked if we would be back at least by 6:00, and was told by Michael the tour guide, that would be no problem. Later at Muir Woods he changed his answer to between 6:00 and 6:30. By the time we got to Sausalito he changed the answer to "somewhere around 6:30". When I voiced concern about the changing times Michael said it was because other passengers weren't ready at their hotel pick up time and that's why we were now running so late. After he walked away the passengers in the first group, picked up from Union Square, shared that Michael actually picked them up 30 minutes late. Because we were now so late I had to hire an Uber to get back to the city, did not get to see any of Sausalito or get pictures at the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. All very stressful, but we did make airport transport at 6:45 because we cut out tour short.

45 minutes late let to being rushed through the sites.
Stacey_H
, Jul 2022
Our driver was 45 minutes late . We only had one day to enjoy the sites so we planned accordingly . We were rushed though the stops . We were allowed 10 minutes at Golden Gate Bridge to take photos and use the restroom. We then rushed to Muir Woods where we were allowed an hour & 10 minutes . We then traveled to the town of Salsulito where we were told we could either take the Ferry back to Fisherrmans Warf which was a seperate fee we weren’t informed about . I wish I would of driven myself so I could of spent time at these places . Not worth the $ .

Discovering the misleading tour description. For $362, all you get is a bus trip and a driver with some facts about the area. No tickets to Muir Woods (another $60.00); no ferry tickets.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Dear Janice, thanks for your feedback but it is said clearly in the tour description that we don't provide tickets for the ferry (it's NOT included, optional), and also we don't include the price for the entrance tickets to Muir Woods into the price of the tour. We talked with you about these facts on the phone.

Beautiful place, great tour guide…1 hour is not enough time to explore Muir Woods. I would Uber or Lyft up next time or choose a tour that gives you more time…

Dear Jon_P, thanks a lot for your feedback and we are delighted you enjoyed your time during the tour. Unfortunately, it is not allowed to stay there more than 1 hour 20 min for tour buses. That's not our fault. Anyway, we are looking forward to seeing you on our other tours!

Muir Woods is amazing and the stop in Sausalito was enjoyable. The van was clean and comfortable. The only negative is that the driver was 30 minutes late picking us up.
