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

The walk was an easy one. I need a Cane and was able to walk on the nice wooden walkway. However when that ended it was more difficult for me on the uneven pavement, but by then I saw enough of the trees and just turned around and visited the store. Make sure you see this amazing nature spot.

Such a peaceful place to visit. We stopped for an hour, (as part of a tour), and were sorry that we were unable to stay longer to fully appreciate the great natural beauty of these woods. Wonderful.

I loved seeing, smelling and taking pictures of all the redwoods. Such a nice peaceful place to go. There is a nice wooden path to walk on and small brook running close by. Pretty choices in the store. I bought a beautiful magnet at the store.
