We had a great time exploring Muir Woods. The drive up was a but unnerving, as I get really bad motion sickness and did not realize the roads were extremely winding. I wish this tour had been guided but it was nice being able to take our time and go at our own pace. When we got there and presented our tickets we were told the park was free that day, so maybe could have saved a little money but no big deal. Our driver was great and friendly.

We booked the tour basically to have a ride to Muir Woods. The narrated part was a bonus but that was not our main reason for booking. Believe all the reviews you read that say the last 10 miles into the forest is winding and narrow. I did have a bout of motion sickness. Being on the bus allowed us parking. Private vehicles must make parking reservations in advance and may not be able to visit when they wish. Make sure you are back at the bus when told. We did meet up with a traveler from another tour group and his bus left without him. We did the 3.5 hour tour so when the bus left Muir Woods it stopped in Sausalito. We got off the bus, toured the town on our own and took the ferry back to S.F. at our own expense which was all stated in the information.

The driver was so patient eating for everyone to arrive on his list to pick up guests and also made sure everyone was back on board to depart back to our start up point . We arrived a little early to Muir Woods and the driver again was so kind and gave up extra time to explore the woods.
