      We learned that Muir Woods schedules visits as our pick up time was changed by a few hours. But the Viator driver and guide were very friendly. It was nice being a smaller group. My only complaint is with the bus layout itself as you are unable to look out the front window (unless you duck your head to be waist level), especially during the windy road to the woods. Overall I highly recommend and would do it again.

      It took a while for the van driver to pick up all the customers, but after that we were taken directly to Muir woods. Muir woods is naturally awesome! We spent an hour an a half there. We proceeded on to Sausalito where we were on our own to choose a restaurant for lunch. We chose the option of taking the ferry back to San Francisco which we enjoyed.

      We took the trip from San Fran to Muir Woods and to Sausalito for lunch. And our tour guide Roman was the best. He did such a good job narrating the trip, funny and accommodating to what the group wanted to see if we preferred something else. The time limits were good, perfect amount of time for lunch and some shopping. And the Muir Woods was beautiful, pictures couldn't capture it.

      Our tour guide was Kimberly. She highlighted many of the San Francisco attractions and was able to provide additional background information about them. Muir woods was amazing! We highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting the bay area.

      The only downside to this trip is the brief time you have in Muir Woods - it's 90 minutes in total. We did the more ambitious hike to the 4th bridge up the hill ridge trail, and to really experience the woods it is best to be able to stand/sit in the groves, and enjoy the silence. We had to really turn up the speed on the hike back to make it back to our transportation on time. The woods itself is breathtaking - a special place worth remembering, and the smell in the air is so fresh. One other small detail - our entrance to the National Monument of Muir Woods was NOT included with this tour price - it was $15 for an adult, no charge for kids under 16, it would have been good to have more clarity that the tickets were not inclusive of this. Another tip, the roads accessing Muir woods are narrow and very windy. If you are taking younger children who get motion sick, advise to take Gravol a half hour before the drive out. The shuttle driver was excellent, very professional, and gave a good overview of the area and also gave some narration in San Francisco. A great guide.

      Beautiful redwood national park. Would have liked a longer amount of time to visit the forest. Felt rushed with 90 minutes to see all the sites.
