A great tour We were with Mike and a great group. The nice van, Mercedes was comfortable, the guide info from mike was great, appealing to our group from canada, jersey, Colorado/Australia & Texas. Muir woods was spectacular and the drive in and out exceptional. 3 vineyards, Larson, Cline and Jacuzzi was nice but the wine is not the best... More

We took both the Muir Woods/Sausalito tour and the full day Yosemite tour. Our tour guide was Eric and he gave us a lot of information about San Francisco, as well as specific facts on so many other areas/people/history. We enjoyed both tours and were pleased with the on time pickup at our hotel. We love national parks and both... More

My husband was in San Francisco for a conference and I wanted to see Yosemite, but wasn't sure if the big drive would be worth it. I never usually take tours either (prefer to travel independently), so I was a bit unsure about whether it would be worth the investment. Happy to say that I'm so glad I ended up... More

A really great way to see Yosemite park covering a lot of area in a short space of time with a decent amount of time stroll around the park. Our group was small, maybe 8 people and the tour bus was large and comfortable with water available. The guide, Eric I think, was excellent at getting us to less busy... More

Did the Yosemite and Carmel/Monterey tours and found them both excellent. Tom provided an informative commentary and we had flexibility in what we did as the groups are small. We had limited time and the Best Bay Area Tours let us see as much as possible with fun groups of people. Thanks for the experiences you offer.

I love seeing new sights with knowledgeable guides and small groups, and Best Bay Area Tours did not disappoint. My husband booked three tours with them for our anniversary. We did the City Tour with Alan on June 27. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and began our tour on a typically foggy morning. We saw... More

This was a very well organized tour. Alan was very responsive and helped in arranging for a new meeting point within 12 hours of my request on email. Mike, our guide was funny, very knowledgeable and helped me in seeing places I had always wanted to see in SF but had no way of getting there on my own -... More

Great tour with Allen who took us on the tour just our family since no one else booked. Was very accommodating and very informative about SF and her history. Sausalito wasn't all that interesting to us, but Muir Woods was fantastic. And although the bridge was nearly engulfed in fog, at our request he stopped to allow us a quick... More

Muir Woods/Sausalito tour was scheduled on line; very easy. We had questions regarding the tour and Alan was quick to reply. We also received a reminder email the day before and Alan was prompt at arriving at our hotel in the morning. What was so special is that he only had a small group and instead of canceling like many... More

Mike is our driver and guide in 7/2/2014. He was very knowledgeable, funny and chatty. The itinerary was excellent, I didn't miss any famous attractions in Yosemite. I had such a great time with Best Bay Area Tour. If I had second chance to visit San Francisco, I definitely going to book their tour once again!! Highly recommended.
