Our guide Patrick was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained during the trip with a great musical playlist related to the story and the people of the area. Yosemite was amazing and well worth the trip. We were not able to see the giant sequoias - the road was closed due to a landslide. But it was ok - the... More

I had 3 days in San Fransisco and there was no doubt in my mind that one of them was going to be spent at Yosemite. After a lot of research and weighing up all the different tour companies, I decided to go with my gut feeling and book through Best Bay Area tours. I certainly wasn't disappointed. I was... More

Patrick was prompt and right on time picking us up in front of our hotel and was flexible regarding where we wanted to be dropped off once the tour wrapped up. He was very informed and shared great tidbits of personal and general knowledge of the areas we drove through, which really helped us gather an idea of the neighborhoods.... More

Wow, what a fantastic tour of a beautiful place, made special by our incredible guide Brian. The waterfalls were magnificent, the weather was superb and Brian's knowledge and personality topped off a truly memorable day. Brian knew the best places and times for them to be seen which added to the experience. That's one ticked off the bucket list, amazing... More

We took the Yosemite in a Day tour and had the best time despite the rain. Patrick made sure we were entertained even during our ride to and from Yosemite (although I was half asleep the entire trip hahaha). He voluntarily took pictures of us and gave pro tips. I also love that this is a guaranteed small group tour.... More

A great tour - Brian was prompt, informative and went out of his way to make us enjoy our trip (he even emailed me later in the day to answer a question he hadn't been able to answer at the time!). The woods were beautiful and we had the perfect amount of time there. It was a great surprise that... More

Paul was our tour guide and he is a treasure. A wealth of information with more knowledge about everything than I have about anything. Every step of the way Paul had information about everything we saw. Muir Woods was beautiful and the stops on the wine tour were fantastic. Highly recommended

Brian was our guide/driver. He was so great! He was informative and entertaining. We had a small group of 10-12 people which I enjoyed. The Muir Woods are gorgeous. We had over an hour there to explore. Next, we entered Sonoma Valley for our first winery stop. We enjoyed lunch in Sonoma square. FYI: Brian told us about a chocolate... More

Our tour guide Patrick was the best tour guide I had in a long time. Since he was born and raised in San Fran, and has had a variety of occupations, he has a vast knowledge of the areas culture and history. Patrick also makes the drive fun with knowledge games and good music.

I took the Yosemite day tour yesterday.  It was great! Brian was our tour guide, he was very informative, fun, and down to earth. He remembered everyone's name after the first try which I find impressive, especially since almost no one remembers my name on the first try. He gave the impression that he genuinely loved his job and made... More
