I loved this tour. Very informative and just the right length. Our guide had a great speaking voice and was easy to understand. He had good suggestions for walking trails through the park that took the right amount of time.

Plenty of photo ops (for the good stuff) and short enough to not wear you out for the whole day. The guide made it easy to know what to expect (time spent at each stop, where/when to meet back up). I wish we had more time at the muir woods stop though, it's not enough to see in just an hour and a half.

Hello alanabramo, thanks for your review and for sharing your experience. We would like to clarify that the tour that you booked was giving you access to the 60' Bay Cruise ride that starts and finishes at Pier 41 (once your Muir Woods & Sausalito tour concludes). You thought that the option you purchased was the Ferry return from Sausalito, and that is the reason why you could not redeem the voucher given. We've revisited all the tours description to make sure that future travelers don't face the same inconveniences you had. Regards, Xavier General Manager Gray Line San Francisco

We booked the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour with the ferry return on December 27th. It was a classic rainy day in the bay. We used Spot Hero to reserve nearby parking which was super helpful in keeping the logistics simple. The bus trip and tour guide were fine and we were able to tour Muir in the mist; beautiful spot, easy walking. It was pouring in Sausalito but the town is fantastic and should not be missed. The ferry ride back was peaceful. Overall a great day.
