For me, Muir Woods was without a doubt the highlight of the tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable about San Francisco and the surrounding areas, so it was fun to learn a bit of the history of Muir Woods and Sausalito. My only complaint is that I would have loved to spend more time in the woods, but with this being one of the most popular tours in SF, I can understand only allowing about an hour or so.
After the woods, we headed to Sausalito. I was a little disappointed with this town. I read that it was home to many artists and eccentrics with little shops and cafes, but all I saw were other tourists like me shopping at VERY expensive stores and eating VERY expensive ice-cream. It's a lot more upscale than I guessed, which is fine but not what I was expecting. The only locals I saw all seemed very wealthy. In my time there I saw countless Audis, BMWs, Mercedes-Benzs, a few Bentleys, and even a Ferrari. If you enjoy high-end shopping, Sausalito is for you.
I'm not knocking the tour for my disappointment in Sausalito. Overall, the tour was great! Our driver was awesome, and the tour ran like clockwork. Besides, Muir Woods was well worth the price even if we didn't go to Sausalito (in my opinion). Definite recommendation from me!
