This was a great day out. The pick up was on time and driver Joe was very informative and funny. Air-conditioned bus with stops during the tour for great scenic photographs of Golden Gate Bridge. Muir Woods was serene and calm.Sausalito was a pretty coastal town with great selection of shops and restaurants. 4 .5 hours great way to see the sights. Highly recommend this well organised trip.

The bus driver was amazing his name was Archery. Very knowledgeable and told good stories and facts. Muir woods was so beautiful he let you know what trails are best for pictures or just viewing. (Could have used a little more time at muir woods) sausiilto was a very cute little town the the soxsiltio (spelling?) Was so cute and we ate at fish and chips so good and inexpensive. Alactraz was so freaking cool loved the audio tour. The only thing I hay was bad was we were not informed that once dropped off to catch the ferry to alactraz we have to find our own way back to the car :'( thankfully a few blocks up we caught a bus and got off at fourth and market and walked half a block to the Ellis and O'Farrell parking garage.

Archie was an awesome guide. Lots of local knowledge nuggets this is the best way to visit Muir Woods. Leave the driving and hassle to someone else and just enjoy. The 90 minute stay was perfect. Also just enough time in Sausalito to get lunch.

Booked the Gray line tour with ‘Get your guide’. Communication and information was great from the minute we booked. The Muir Woods, Sausalito and Alcatraz tour was amazing, if I could give 6/5 I would! Josh was our tour guide for the day and I think we got the top prize....he was amazing! From a smooth pick up at the Grayline offices, Josh explained the day & was a very personable & informative from the minute we boarded. He was the most accommodating tour guide, his knowledge & facts about San Fran and the tour was second to none, we learnt loads! He even dropped us off at our chosen stops. Top man...he deserved his spaghetti & garlic when he got home!

The tour was really good and well organized. However, knowing what I know now I would recommend to buy tickets to Alcatraz on it’s own, it’s easy enough to do. Just get ferry tickets and audio tour when you get there. It might be cheaper to do this. The Tour operation drops you off at the pier anyway. Sausalito and Muir Woods are nice but it was to rushed and very tiring to do before a long trip to Alcatraz.

I thought by buying a tour I would get special tour once on the Island but you don’t. So what the point? Get to peer 39 and go to by yourself .

Muir Woods is beautiful. The easy hike along the boardwalk trail brings you through picturesque and stunning Redwoods. Sausalito is a cute little waterfront town with shops and restaurants. It was amazing to learn about Alcatraz via the cellblock audio tour; however, it is unfortunate to see this historical location in such poor condition, with crumbling walls and floors. Our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and humorous. The bus was comfortable and the AC worked well. I would recommend this tour.

Hello Shannon, We'll make sure we pass your kind words along to our guide Joe, who we know will be delighted to read your comment. I had the same feeling when I recently visited Alcatraz, but unfortunately, this is beyond our control. However, I would still recommend visiting the island; it is a must-see in every visit to San Francisco. Please check all other tours that Gray Line San Francisco any time you come back to visit us! We appreciate your business. MC Sales Manager Gray Line San Francisco

So far, I have received two emails from this company. First it sounded urgent to call to get the Alcatraz start time. After talking to two people was told it was too early to call even though the email sounded urgent.

The second email was confusing. Wasn't sure where or when we would start the tour. Also, I guess we are in charge of picking up our tickets for the Alcatraz portion. The only clarity was a description in TripAdvisor but we're still confused. Perhaps I will receive a return email from the company explaining everything. Not sure it's worth it. We'll see.

Total disappointment and lack of customer service...check your email often or get left behind.
I was looking forward to the Alcatraz/Muir Wood/Sausalito combo tour, but am got left without Alcatraz tickets and a cancelled Muir Woods tour. Now, I don’t trust them and want others to be warned. Check you email and respond immediately or you could get cancelled too!

I received an email on Friday 5th that my Tuesday tour was overbooked and they were moving us to Monday. When I called to confirm on Saturday the 6th they said that Mon was not really possible. I asked for Wednesday and got some lame story at 2pm that they already submitted the names for the 10th, it was too late and they were cancelling.

When I asked about the other parts of the tour...they said I could rebook and then hung up on me. Did try to salvage any part of the service I pre-purchased.

Total lack of customer service and lack of communication. They don’t call you before screwing up your vacation so check those emails and make sure you are not enroute to your destination the day THEY expect you to respond.

My friend booked this trip a couple of weeks before our trip to USA and this was the only reason for adding San Francisco into our USA tour. We arrived into the city the day before the trip late at night so knew we needed to get to the ticket office early to collect our tickets. We got there at 7am to be told that our booking had been cancelled because passenger two was missing a name despite the fact my friend put both our names in at the time of booking. We were told that a refund had been given. REFUND NOT GIVEN! The lady at he kiosk then gave their street rep a call to see if he had any extra tickets we could have. We paid $120 for these tickets as we were assured that we were going to have a refund. The tickets from the street rep weren’t for original option of muir woods as he said that if we did the hop on hop off his tour we could have it for 48hours which also included the night tour. NIGHT TOUR NOT INCLUDED! The Alcatraz tickets from the street rep did not need names on so not sure what the issue with lack of names was in the first place. After returning to the UK my friend has tried contacting Viator to get a refund but has had no reply. Absolutely appalling service. AVOID BOOKING THROUGH TRIPADVISOR/VIATOR!!!
