We purposely booked this trip for a small tour- 15 total on the bus. Before booking the trip I contacted the tour operator directly and spoke with Alan. When I needed to change the hotel information I telephoned the office, left a message on the...More

The tour to Muir Woods and Sausalito was excellent. We were given ample time (90 minutes) to explore Muir Woods. The scenery on the drive up was beautiful and Muir Woods was stunning. After leaving Muir Woods, we stopped in Sausalito for just under 1...More

We had the most perfect day on this tour. Sonoma is a beautiful town and the winery's were fabulous. Brian was very a personable and accommodating guide. We loved every moment of this trip and made memories we'll never forget.

This is quite a dishonest operator. In the brochure, it was clearly stated that the day-tour to Yosemite was $140 per person. However, I was charged $149. The company said, "Oh, we haven't updated the tour brochure". This is simply inexcusable and unacceptable. Just to...More

I'm sorry you feel that we were dishonest. When the concierge booked your reservation, I clearly told her that the rate was $149 per person. I'm sorry she didn't communicate that to you. Our rates went up from $140 to $149 last January 2017. She...More

Yes we do. We've had it for years.
If I'm the only person signed up for a half day city tour, do you still do the tour?

I saw in other reviews as well, that Alan tends to get people in with other tour companies to make sure people don't miss out on a tour experience.
What is the best footwear for a visit to Yosemite please?
