“Nice, but long”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We took a bus tour down the coast to Carmel by the sea. We did know that it would be 11 hours but it seemed longer. The couple of stops that were for 1 1/2 hours long seemed to drag on . Driver was very knowledgeable but was extremely talkative. A lot of trivia stuff we didn't need to hear. Bus could have been more comfortable too. The chairs need arm rests bad. Only armrest on the aisle side of inside seat. I will keep this in mind for any future bus tours. Maybe the tour seemed long because of the fact the seats weren't so comfortable.

“Twilight Tour”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I took the twilight tour on the 15th Sept and enjoyed every minute of it. The guide was excellent (sorry cannot remember his name). We got a chance to walk part of the Golden Gate Bridge and got some photos as the sun started to go down. The highlight of the tour was seeing the Bay Bridge light up and the San Francisco skyline at night from Treasure Island. Highly recommend this tour!

“Smaller bus would be better!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Our driver was great, was born in San Francisco and knew the city well. To his credit, he took that bus down some small streets and up and down all the hills. For us a small buss would have been better. I wouldn't say not to take these tours, but just be prepared, you will be on a full size bus.

“Muir Woods & Sausalito Tour”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We chose the tour that took us by bus to Muir Woods & then dropped us off in Sausalito where we caught a ferry back to the City. Out tour guide, John, was both entertaining and informative which made the trip enjoyable. We were allowed to spend 90 minutes at Muir Woods, not enough time but enough to wet our appetites to go back in the future. Sausalito was a bit of a disappointment but maybe that is because our expectations were very high. Catching the ferry back to Pier 39 was easy and the ride a treat. I recommend the bus over and ferry back to anyone going to Muir Woods & Sausalito.
