We recently spent some time visiting northern California with our granddaughter ending the trip with 4 days in San Francisco. We wanted to take her to Yosemite for a day and decided to do a small group tour with Best Bay based on TripAdvisor reviews. Every thing was as described on their website and in the reviews. Highly recommend.

We just got back from a great day in Yosemite National Park. Thomas was our guide, he was very informative and told us about points of interest during the journey from San Francisco and in the park itself. He drove us to some viewpoints and he helped us plan a route to take when we had free time in the... More

Eric was a wonderful driver and commentator of facts. Had plenty of time to walk the trails and buy in souvenirs in the gift shop. Quick stop in Sausalito for views and ice cream then a fantastic overlooked to "the bridge". Returned directly to the hotel. Nice to have a small group tour. And when a phone was left in... More

My husband and two adult daughters went on the Muir Woods/Sonoma tour. We were hesitant in booking because we only had 2 full days in San Francisco, and the tour would've taken a full day. No regrets in doing so. All of us feel it was one of our favorite things we did on our trip through Northern California. We... More

I've just returned from my San Francisco vacation, where I spent 5 days with my mom & sister. One of highlights of our trip was the day we spent with Alan on the Sonoma Valley & Muir Woods tour. Alan was prompt to pick us up at the hotel, and the van was the perfect size. This day ended up... More

My wife and I had a wonderful vacation and we really enjoyed our tours with Best Bay Area Tours. Alan and Eric were both very friendly and knowledgeable. We met some very nice people on the tours as well. We highly recommend their tours of the city as well as their tours of the Muir Woods and the Sonoma Wine... More

We had a great experience with Alan on our Muir Woods and Sonoma Tour. He was on time and very knowledgable about the area. We got great insight on all facets of the city and it's surrounding areas. It was a lot of fun visiting both Sonoma and Muir Woods. We never felt rushed and got to spend plenty of... More

We just returned from a family vacation in San Francisco with 8 of us. I had looked into other tours before going and picked "Best Bay Area Tours" originally because of the tour options and frankly the reviews. I can honestly say it was a fantastic decision. After speaking directly to Alan before arriving over the phone and having him... More

We went on a 4 hour tour of San Francisco, our guide was Greg. He knew the city well and had lots of good advice re restaurants and places to come back and visit. This is a good way to become familiar with the city and to pick those areas worth returning to. Also liked the small van which could... More
