My husband and I visited Muir Woods on a recent trip to San Francisco. The only negative about it was how curvy the roads were to get to it. Once there, the woods were peaceful, a great change from the hustle and bustle of the city. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful old trees and walking the trails. We were impressed... More

Great for hiking through the forest, great for nature spotting, and great for natural history. Turn up before 10:00am to get parking in the car park, or expect to walk a few miles to find a spot.

Lovely walking tour through beautiful redwood trees. Just a short drive from San Francisco. Get there early as parking fills up very fast! The fog had lifted when we were there so the sun was shining through the trees making for a delightful view!

Extranomical Tours was exceptional for this tour as we had a full 2 hours to view this wonderful place. We arrived before 9:00AM so missed most of then other tourists as we wandered through the forest to view the magnificent redwood trees. It was almost like having the entire forest to ourselves, making our visit a highlight of our stay... More

This was a very rushed trip - we had a few extra hours after our business meeting was over. But it was well worth the drive. Took us over the Golden Gate Bridge and up the mountain. We were able to cover the first 4 bridges and then climb up the mountain for about a mile and half. THen back... More

Nice trip to woods the walk was so scenic and got to cross the Golden Gate Bridge was a bonus. We got a small tour of Saulsilito which is a nice quaint town.

After a long flight from the east coast, we stopped at Muir Woods on our way up to Napa. This is one of those places that you remember for a lifetime and return to every time you are in the area. Don't miss it.

It was a truly awesome morning out in the spectacular Muir Woods with the wonderful, interesting, ever entertaining Tom! Easy booking, on time pick up and an early start to beat the crowds and you really do. You spend a few hours strolling the amazing woods with Tom providing expert commentary and laughs all the way. He provides a great... More

My husband and I booked a 3 1/2 hour tour with Tom Martell, a naturalist who has been giving walking tours for the last 25 years. He was so much fun and extremely knowledgeable about EVERYTHING... Never a dull moment. He picks you up at your hotel and drops you off at the Sausalito ferry. It's worth every penny as... More
