The extreme knowledge of the driver
Our driver Michael was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed listening to all the facts imparted. Having a small group meant that we didn't lose much time waiting for people.We recommend this tour, especially with the wonderful option of being able to stay in Sausilito to enjoy a more sunny and warmer day than in the heart of downtown San Francisco, despite it being summer.
Although the Tour guide was a bit monotone, he had a wealth of information about many different subjects. He had a dry sense of humor which I appreciated but my mid twenty kids weren't impressed.

What an amazing tour. I have went on this type of tour 4 times. I have done this tour twice now. I love how evolved the tour has become. Blondine did an amazing job showing us around.
The driver gave us history of the area as well as enjoyable music from bygone eras. He was patient on our return to the city with horrific traffic jams due to road construction. It was everything I had hoped it would be. Thank you sincerely.

We enjoyed the smaller group size. Our driver was very entertaining and full of information about the area the whole trip. He was funny and he made the drive very interesting. You could not have gotten this kind of attention or history about the area with a large tour bus group. It was a fantastic day!
this tour was perfect for my two boys and I. very informative but not too much that would bore my boys! Pick up was easy since they pick you up at your hotel..

Sausalito Tour was not well planned. Traffic, etc. We had not enough time to grab a lunch since we had to leave on the driver time schedule which only allowed 30 minutes!
Would have loved to stay longer at Muir Woods. Maybe they should consider a longer stay so much to see. Sausalito too short a time could not see all it had to offer would have loved to have grabbed a bite at one of the nearby cafes.
The communication regarding where we were being picked up was poor. I understood that pickup was only at downtown/Union Square hotels. We went to the union square Hilton and asked the concierge where the pickup was. We were told it would be on the Taylor street side of the building. We waited outside for at least fifteen minutes then went inside to make sure we weren't missing any announcements. We even called your company to make sure we didn't miss the bus! Shortly after that the driver was calling for "Julia Scotland" so we followed him outside and asked if he was with your company. If we hadn't asked he would have left to pick us up at our hotel! There was no sign, the bus was not marked and we did not hear any announcement that he was there. Jerry did a great job with the tour. He was very informative and gave good recommendations. I'm glad it worked out. The communication regarding pick up could use some improvement though!
the tour guide was very friendly and explained a lot of curious facts about the area. Although we would have liked to stay longer at the Muir Woods park, the time that the tour offers inside the park is enough to have a nice hike
Could have had more time in Sausalito - we ended up taking the ferry back so we could spend more time there. Driver was pretty informstive
on time, combination with guide and music sets the scene very well
Michael did a great job sharing his knowledge of the history of the area as well as some great facts about Muir Woods
Our guide was wonderful, funny and very knowledgeable.
Guide/driver had fantastic knowledge of history and geography of city and area around woods. Liked his music additions.
Other people cancelled their trip st short notice and only my brother and I were left and they still made the trip possible even though we were only 2 people.
Our guide Thomas was personable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and time together on this excursion.

Muir Woods was lovely - a little more than 70min required. The bus picked us up at 9:40am, instead of 9:00am. We were the last lot of passengers to be picked up. The weather was rainy so the traffic and weather conditions affected seeing the views along the way. The bus driver was pleasant, friendly and gave an informative commentary. Not sure why it was suggested to have lunch at Sausalito when there was time before going onto Alcatraz. Both of us would have preferred to be driven around Sausalito or been given a map of the areas and its highlights. Unfortunately, we didn't see anything of Sausalito. As I had been to Sausalito 30 years ago and my sister had never been there, that part of our trip was very disappointing. We were dropped off at Fisherman's Wharf and made our own way to Pier 33. Alcatraz was great.
The tour was great. You get picked up from your hotel and we got a small tour of San Fran heading up to the woods. You get a little over 1 hour to yourself at the park. We stopped at the bridge to get a picture then headed to Sausalito. It was a great time and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The small group was fun because we all got to know each other and experience it together. Definitely worth it!
It was a great tour and our guide was fun and energetic. I would have just liked a little bit more time to explore in each of the places we visited.
Great service and knowledgeable driver. This was exactly the experience we were expecting and Taste of San Francisco did an excellent job
Tour guide Patrick was very congenial and shared a lot of interesting facts about the region. The tour itself was amazing- highly satisfied!
