If you're an adventure traveller you'll find this very boring but for a city tourist as I was, visiting San Francisco, a day tour to the Muir Woods was a great get-away nature experience with fresh air and great scenery.

We loved the walk hated the crowds. Get there early and take either the beach path or the hill path. The main flat path is crowded with tourist, strollers and looks more like a mall than a nature walk. Parking is an issue and the walk from where you parked might be longer than the one you take in the... More

What a difference the tour guide can make. Aaron Taylor is the best guide we have come across. Our tour to Muir Woods was with the Gray Line tour, we were so lucky to get Aaron. He was so informative and friendly. He loved questions from the group and tried to explain what not to miss during our walk through... More

I was so excited to take this tour - I booked it six months in advance. Tom picks you up at your hotel and drives you over the Golden Gate Bridge in the fog to beautiful Muir Woods - early in the morning before the crowds arrive. Those trees are just incredible - the first part of tour is walking... More

Some of the first people were the Coast Miwok people who according to records, started fires to open up the forest to improve their chances of hunting of deer’s. In 1800s, the Northern California coastal valleys were covered with coast redwood trees similar to those now found in Muir Woods National Monument. Muir Woods was spared from logging because it...

Muir Woods is so pretty; we walked up to the 4th bridge and back down the opposite side. There are so many places to take beautiful pictures.

So beautiful, so peaceful, so worth the time to visit. This place should be on your bucket list. We've visited both times we were in San Francisco.

This is a must if you decide to visit Muir Woods. Tom picked us up at our hotel, on time, once there he takes you off the beaten path; past all the many tourists. It is truly spectacular. He is funny, friendly, a wealth of info. Even provides a wonderful picnic lunch. Felt like I have known him forever. This... More

This was a fantastic tour. To start off, Tom picks you up at your hotel bright and early so you can arrive at Muir Woods before the crowds. We started on the boardwalk trail but soon went on the dirt trail where it was just us and the trees. It wasn't a hard hike, but he did stop frequently to... More

I'm a retired forester from the east who had never seen a redwood tree before. So for me, this was a top ten "bucket list" item. My wife and I wanted to find a walking tour that allowed enough time to experience the moment. The Muir Walking Tour did that for us. Tom Martell led our group and gave us... More
