While my husband and I were visiting San Francisco and wanted to see some of the Bay Area without having to rent a car. So we took the Muir Woods/Sonoma wineries tour with Alan. Turned out to be a great choice! We were picked up promptly and were pleased with both the van and our reasonably sized group. We arrived at Muir Woods ahead of the bulk of the tourist crowd, and enjoyed a wonderful morning walk! Great way to start the day! Excellent planning on Alan's part. We then went to Sonoma where we had a really enjoyable afternoon. We were given great treatment at the wineries and really enjoyed the places Alan picked for us to visit. Mike, at Cline Cellars, went out of his way to treat us fabulously! ( It was my birthday and another couples anniversary and he helped make it a real celebration!)
Thanks, Alan for a terrific birthday tour!

This tour was awesome and the highlight of my San Francisco trip, In fact, this tour stand-outs when compared to my tour travels both domestic and international. Alan knows his "stuff" and answered all my questions patiently and thoroughly. He is a consummate tour professional; e.g. pick up was punctual, transport clean and spotless, information clear, concise and thorough. Best of all, Alan was exceptionally accommodating and flexible while maintaining the highest professional tour guide standards. Thrilled to pieces to have had this experience.

Our guide, Eric, was a really nice guy who knew lots of stuff about the places we went to. He was very punctual in picking us up and everything went according to plan. I guess that is what I liked the most about this tour. There were no hidden costs or tricks. The van was very comfortable. Muir Woods is unmissable. Really beautiful and peaceful. We then went to 3 wineries, all of which were nice (in 2 of them we had reservations). We did not have to pay for the wine tastings and ended up buying some bottles as the wines were quite nice. We especially liked the Larson winery. There was more than enough wine drinking and yet we spent over an hour at Muir woods, which is why I highly recommend this tour.

Allen took myself with my Sister, 3yr old daughter, 3yr old niece and 6mo old niece on this tour and it was wonderful! Booster seats were provided and Allen was a delight, as we made our way out of the city he shared many interesting points in the city. Got us to Muir woods and saw us to the trail head, gave good advice on what route to take through the trail and was waiting for us when we got back with the van nice and warm. The best part was that he had us in and out before the huge crowds showed up, we were leaving just as the droves of huge tour coaches were showing up. We opted to ride back with him after Sausalito so as to see the Golden Gate bridge which was gorgeous, he took pictures for us and was great with the kids. Once again he had us out of there just as the massive tour busses were showing up. All day he had us perfectly timed just ahead of the huge wave of tourists, Allen is the big wave surfer of tour guides, smooth and surgical! If you want to see these beautiful sites without fighting crowds, this is the tour for you!

This was a highlight day for us in San Fran! Great relaxing tour (not a 'drop your ice cream and hurry up tour') - thanks so much to Alan who was an amazing, accomodating and knowledgeable tour guide. We would totally recommend this tour with this company and Alan as a guide.
