Perfection, humour and quality sights all in one bundle.

A truly wonderful experience. Grey Lines tours really shined with their care and customer service. The guide had a significant amount of local knowledge and even gave us enough time to get some photos on the north side of the golden gate bridge. The tour went like clock work. Even though their was a tight schedule we never felt rushed and had plenty of time to soak up all the sights. We highly recommend getting the ferry back from sausilito, this will give you plenty of time to enjoy the town and relax yourself back to San Francisco. Don't forget to check your emails and confirm the timing of your tour! Even though we booked the 9am tour it was confirmed as 11am, this is due to the changes in parking for Muir Woods. For us this was anticipated as we made sure that we contacted Grey Lines a week before, and via the phone on the day. Altogether a wonderfully unique experience from a tour company we now trust and appreciate.

Great way to spend a day out of the city

Our tour to Muir Woods and the winery tour of Sonoma and Napa was a great day to spend a day out of the City by the Bay. It was on 11 March. The tour included a small detour for some great pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge. Lunch at Sonoma Valley on a sunny March afternoon did not just taste good, it was a burst of fresh colours around the park. The wife loves cherry blossoms - now we know Japan does not have a monopoly on them; the stretch of cherry blossoms on the way out of Cline vineyard was as impressive as those we saw in Japan. The view of the lush green landscape was very impressive. A great day for pictures. Kudos to our tour guide who was superb and made the whole day a great day. Cheers.

Wonderful full fun day seeing all the highlights of the city.

Our guide “Ro” was so kind and informative. Perfect size bus. Every stop was well timed, his recommendations for our stay in the city were spot on. It was a perfect first day in the city and going to Muir Woods was magical and spiritual. My only suggestion for making this tour beyond awesome would be to add another 1/2 hour for the Muir Woods portion. The stop in Saulsolito was perfect including the deli recommendation. Just 30 more minutes in the Woods would be perfection. And the sound track coming back from the Woods was a great touch!

Overpriced but only way to go to Alcatraz on short notice.

The voucher that we received was a bit misleading as it said we had to be there by 8:30, but our tour to Alcatraz didn't start until 10:30. Our tour to Muir Woods was supposed to start at 2:00, which did not give us much time for the tour of Alcatraz including the ferry wait time, getting back to the meeting point, etc. Sausalito was only 20 minutes which was also not made clear on the voucher. Also the bus driver was about a half hour late going to Muir Woods.

Great way to get to Muir Woods (not cheapest)

We enjoyed the brief tour, there was a lot of traffic due to holiday weekend. The driver pointed out a lot of information about SanFrancisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Saulsilito, and the Muir woods. Once in the forrest, you have the same experience as everyone else, also outstanding.
