We recently took a tour with this company and we can honestly say they go above and beyond in terms of their service. The walk through Muir Woods was fantastic and Sausalito was a pleasant experience. We would definitely recommend this tour provider.

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your tour. It is a 90 minute drive to the Napa Valley which does vary with traffic. We chose the 2 wineries not only for the quality of their wines but also for their contrasting ambiances. It...More
