“Great trip, with great tour guide.”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Pick up was great, lovely comfortable small coach, and Mike our guide went the extra mile to make the trip very memorable. we had time to see and enjoy the spectacular Yosemite. Mike was very informative and professional, he made the trip feel relaxed and very enjoyable. Would choose BBAT again and reccomend them to anyone. Thanks Anne and Peter. Hope to see you again Mike.

What amazing tours - we were lucky enough to have this company two days in a row & even more fortunate to have the same fantastic driver/tour guide "Mike".
Our first day was a tour to the beautiful Monterey & Carmel both were fantastic & we had a few little stops along the way for some brilliant coffee & pastries at (Davenport) to keep us warm and satisfied & a few other spots for photo's.
The information provided was great & the company even better.
Mike has a unique way of getting everyone to get to know each other & after an hour into the trip make you feel like its one big happy family travelling together.
He knew all the fantastic places to see, where to get the best pictures & where all the best entertainment & food was, to make the road trip even better he pumped out fantastic music which we all had to guess & sing along..
(We even taught him a thing or two about new bands)
Our second day was a city tour of beautiful San Francisco, again mike made it a fantastic tour and enjoyed every block of it!!
If you do ANY TOUR while in The Amazingly beautiful San Francisco you are CRAZY if you don't pick "Best Bay Area Tours"
We will be back for sure.

Thanks Mike, your "Team Aussie Friends" Carmel & Ryan.

Personal.Mike knew all the perfect picture spots and took us to see people climbing/rappelling the
Mountain.He asked if he could take our picture so that we were both in it with the bridal veil as a background.He drove down to Treasure Island as a plus because ,we made great time coming back and we played Name That Tune as he drove.So can any company top that..?Beebee & kevin

“San Francisco city tour and Muir Woods and Sausalito tour”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We started our vacation in San Francisco with the city tour and ended later in the week with the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour and would highly recommend them. Allan was our very informative and friendly guide on both days. We had very small groups and were able to have a personalized tour of the city, very different from being on a big tour bus. Allan made an extra stop in Golden Gate Park to allow us to take a ride on the carousel and took us to many places the bigger tour busses did not go. On our morning tour to Muir woods, we arrived early enough to enjoy a two-hour hike in the woods and were able to enjoy the trees and sounds of the water and birds before the big tour bus crowds arrived. If you want to treat yourself to an enjoyable, relaxing, personalized tour, Best Bay is the one to choose.
