We chose this tour to Muir Woods with the promise of an early arrival. It was a nice small van for just 8 people, not a huge crowded bus. Paul, our driver, was quite entertaining and informative. He went the extra mile to get us there before the big busses and had some good advice on the tour. We were... More

Brian our tour guide was fantastic. Informative and innovative. We managed to dodge the crowds thus had more free time to hike and explore. We stopped at strategic sites for best vistas and pics. Highly recommend this tour.

The guide is Bryan, he is very helpful, knows all the good spot to enjoy the view and taking pictures. Also extremely timely. The only downside is we only spend 2.5 - 3 hrs in yosemite valley (+1 hrs in giant sequioa) but this probably explainable for only 1 day trip. Great experiences, I do not regret and definitely will... More

Patrick was a great guide, loved his way of linking music to our trip, made the long bus ride go a lot quicker! Loved the park, would recommend to anyone to try and travel later in year or start of the year so you can see the falls

my friends and I had an amazing experience with best bay area tours. Our guide, Chris, was amazing and he made the journey there felt so short with his energy in storytelling. As a first time visitor to Yosemite, it was nice hearing the stories Chris had to tell about the park. He was polite and constantly checked with everyone... More

Thomas was our driver. He was right on time and friendly. We did the day trip to Yosemite. The 4 hour ride was not bad due to all the scenery and interesting tidbits Thomas shared. We were very high and the road began to curve a lot at one point. But it was worth it to see Yosemite. I suggest... More

Last week we took our 15 year old granddaughter to San Francisco and booked two tours with Best Bay Area Tours. The vans are very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the 1/2 day city tour with Brian, our guide. He was friendly, energetic, and very courteous and accommodating. We were lucky enough to have him as our guide for... More

I booked 2 tours with Best Bay Area Tours before arriving in San Francisco and would definitely recommend to anyone. The first one I took was the day trip to Yosemite. Our tour guide was amazing and unfortunately his name slips my mind but I think he used to be a music teacher and he slipped in relevant music to... More

This company is true to its name - it is indeed the best bay area tour company, esp. its care and respect to the customers, punctuality, reliability, comfortable van, and "just the right size of a tour group". I almost booked with "the bigger tour company". I was lucky I saw this company in one of my searches before I... More

Richard our guide led us on a wonderful trip to the Golden Gate, Muir Woods and Sonoma Valley. First stop was the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. A quick stop for some windy cool pics! Then onto the Muir Woods where we had over an hour to see the beauty of the redwoods on an easy walking path. After that we... More
