Adolfo our driver made the trip extra interesting with his sense of humor and knowledge of the area. Seems like the only easy way to see Muir Woods is to go by tourbus. Wonderful scenery.

We went on the Muir Woods/Sausilito tour with Adolfo as our guide and had a great time! Adolfo was funny, very friendly and very entertaining. Highly recommend this tour: it was just the right amount of time to spend touring this area.

Took a fantastic tour with the most awesome tour guide, Patrick! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and kind! Great safe driver! Would take any Tower Tour anywhere with Patrick! Next trip to SF, we will book again. He knew my 22 year old daughter was into photography and made a point to stop at a great vista. Just beautiful!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed out trip to Monterey and Carmel. Our driver Adolfo was fantastic. He made the entire trip worth while.

Took a tour of Muir woods when we were visiting San Francisco. WE had to book a head of time but that was ok. It was easier taking the bus then driving ourselves. It was kind of pricey, but found an ad in one of the local magazines that helped offset the cost. Our tour took us to Muir woods... More
