I spent a lot of time reviewing the different tour options for a Yosemite Day Tour and the Muir Woods/Sausalito Tour. I finally decided on using Best Bay Area Tours and am so glad I did. The tour guides were wonderful and the smaller group size really made a difference. On the Yosemite Trip, we had brief stops for restroom... More

I picked Best Bay Area Tours to take a one-day tour to Yosemite from San Francisco. I checked the ratings here on Tripadvisor, and one of the reasons I chose Best Bay was because of the ratings and because they used a van with a more intimate number of passengers, approximately 14 or 15. When I called, six people were... More

My husband and I had Alan as our tour guide and had a wonderful day. Yosemite is hot in August so wear shorts. The van was comfortable and Alan was very patient with 2 members of our group who could not seem to tell time. The music on the return trip made the ride back fun,especially the medley of San...

A lot of picture taking opportunities with breathtaking views. Whatever is described in their website is exactly what we did. Pickup and drop off at our hotel was great. Our tour guide was Eric he is a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide.

We had Eric as our guide and driver and we had a wonderful day doing back to back tours of Muir Wood and then the city. Long day but Eric made it fun and we had a great time. Worth every penny!! Would definitely recommend them to anyone visiting San Francisco. Thank you!

This was a small group tour (twelve of us altogether), very relaxing, does not entail a lot of walking, a lot of picture taking opportunities with breathtaking views.

We took the day tour with Eric. The wildfires eliminated the stop to see the Sequoias and it was quite smokey to really take in the view....not the tour guides fault by any means. But, that being said, we were not too impressed with Eric....although knowledgeable, there were times we felt a little uneasy of his driving and I don't... More

We went on the day tour of Yosemite National Park. It was a great tour. The group was small - no more then 15 people and Tom our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend to other travellers

We were disappointed with this average at best 'tour' that included both Muir Woods and lovely Sausalito. Perhaps the disappointment was due in part to our having two previous SF area tours, both quite excellent, the second led by the best guide that I could recall for a tour spanning up to a full day. The drive was most uncomfortable.... More
