Alan was charming and very personable. We did a group tour to Sausalito and Muir Woods. He didn't go overboard with silly gimmicks or canned jokes. He just shared his extensive knowledge about SF, history and the sights we were seeing in a way that made all of my group rate him 5 stars. Plus, I left my camera on... More

We took four tours (Monterey & Carmel, City Tour, Yosemite, and Muir Woods & Sausilito)...each one exceptional. Mike, Tom and Alan were wonderful, personable and knowledgeable tour guides. The small size tours were just perfect for us. It enabled our tour guides to be able to answer any questions we had during our tours. Our hotel pickups were always on... More

We were picked up from our San Francisco Hotel right on time by our tour guide Eric. Our transport was a new 14 seater bus which was very comfortable with tinted windows, reclining seats and good leg room,The trip out to Yosemite is a long one, so don't expect a short bus trip, but it was well worth the time...

We had limited time in San Francisco and wanted to see more than just the downtown area without renting a car. We went on the Muir Woods/Sausalito tour and loved it. Muir Woods is a must when in San Francisco and a bit tricky to get to. We liked the fact that our tour van picked us up from our... More

Alan, the owner, has established a well organized and informative tour company. We took 3 different tours with Best Bay Tours while we were in San Francisco. Enjoyed each one! Well worth the price! We toured the Muir Woods, all day trip to Monterey and Carmel, and the San Francisco city tour. We had Alan for two of the tours... More

My mom and I went on the Muir Woods and Sonoma Valley Wine Tour and it was a fun, educational, and relaxing experience. We went in a small tour bus that sat about 10-12, but we only had eight on our tour. Our guide was great and really told us a lot about the places we were going and talked... More

This was our first trip to Muir Woods and Wine Country and after much research on Trip Advisor booked with Best Bay Area Tours and were not disappointed. We were picked up at our hotel by Mike, our driver in a 12 passenger van. We liked the small group size which made it extremely easy to organize our arrivals and... More

Not a great experience. I thought I would check to see if other people had had the same experience with the guide and I echo their opinion. Eric was tired and crabby I felt. He was running to a timetable and had worked too many days straight. He made it clear we needed to get our acts together from the... More

Dear Celede, Thank you so much for your feedback. I am totally shocked and extremely upset by how you and the other guests were treated on this tour. This is far from how I conduct my business and not what I expect from my guides. This treatment was unacceptable. I have made some changes to ensure that no one will... More

Also can't say enough good about this tour company. We did Muir Woods and wine-tasting in Sonoma, and our guide Alan made it the perfect day for our group of six. He is very knowledgable about the history, past and current, of the woods and the wineries, without over-doing; sensitive enough to let some moments just happen, which i really... More
