If you are going to see Muir Woods, go with Tom! He does a small group tour and gets you to the woods early to avoid the crowds and the noise they bring. Excellent!! It was so quiet and nice to hike among the trees and learn the history of the area. While it's cool in the morning, it warmed... More

We booked our tour with Super Sightseeing Tours and the bus driver was funny, informative, and very friendly. We very much enjoyed the ride to and from Muir Woods and all of his commentary along the way. We were given a time to be back at the bus, and thankfully, everyone was courteous enough to comply. The gift shop was... More

Tom starts early to beat the crowd and gets you to the best spots. I learned more in a few hours with Tom than I did in all of my science classes. More importantly, it was enjoyable. We were able to get off the beaten path and find backwoods trails. We might have found those trails but it would have... More

Not as pretty as I imagined but we didnt hike to the beach. It was very easy, & nice to see the tree's & woods. Take food for a little picnic before going in, & water, good shoes. The guides are very nice & helpful.

Really well done. Nice walking area for viewing the redwoods. Also has several other trails as an option. Bring the map, as it is easy to take the wrong turn on the trail. No issei on the regular walking areas.

Absolutely a must going to Muir Woods. Tom picked us up right on time, was very informative and knowledgeable. The best tour we could have hoped for, got there early and avoided all the crowds. His "little" snack is actually a nice picnic in the woods with a small group, so the whole experience was positive. He even had a... More

Had a fantastic time with Tom. He picked us up at our hotel and we arrived at Muir Woods early enough to beat the heat and crowds. Covered several miles of walking and beautiful sites. Hit all the good photo spots as well.

It was a lovely walk through the woods and don't get me wrong, they are some big trees, but we were all expecting those humungous trees that you can drive a car through when they're hollowed out. Its a well kept path, for any level of outdoor enthusiast. It smells lovely. The gift shop is pricey but they have some... More

I love the concept of living green, like nature, and all that; but I couldnt help feel as I was walking along a path (still don't know which one it was since we did not pay $1 for map although we did glance at one quickly but that wasn't of any help) that there somehow was suppose to be something...

We did a tour with Tom Martell and had an amazing time! He picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and we got to the park before many other people. We were able to see the Muri Woods without crowds and he led us off the boardwalk to a trail with no other tours on it! There... More
