It was a superb hike. Michael was great. An awesome guide and photographer. Very scenic. Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific. Saw dolpins and sea lions too. Had a great time.

Michael does a very thorough and off the beaten path tour. He takes group pics along the way. We very much enjoyed ourselves and thought it was a well spent 3 hours.
