Guide Brian Wunderlich was very obliging: he was on service, gave us many binoculars and took us to a point of view to see Oakland Bay Bridge and panorama of Financial district. Brought me... More

Tour guide Patrick gave us a wonderful tour to Muir woods and Sonoma. He was extremely knowledgeable with regards to the history and area. What made it most enjoyable for us was the way that he incorporated music during his tour. A friendly and approachable driver - we could not have asked for more.

The tour guide Brian gave us a fantastic tour of the Yosemite Park and made the most of our time which was more than normal due to favourable traffic conditions and the groups' punctuality. Scenery is amazing, off season visit during September is a great time to go as places are less crowded but the weather is good. Highly recommend... More

My husband and I went to Yosemitie with Patrick and he realy was an excellent tour guide and clearly enjoyed what he was doing. He arrived at our hotel early for the pickup which was great. He has an easy manner and we loved that he played music which he had clearly spent time on making sure it was relevant... More

This day was better than expected. It is a long day tour approx.13 hours. However it really was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The mini van is great, comfortable and moves quickly along the roads.The whole journey is well planned with enough stops to break up the trip, stopping along the way to purchase supplies at a reasonable price for the...

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
