    It was a great day. We went on a whole day tour to Yosemite park. Our driver Phil text me the day before to make sure we knew the time and he was on time in the morning to pick us up. He even walked around at a scenic point and was helping all the couples by taking their phone and making sure they had a picture together. Phil knew so much about every stop and when someone wanted a bathroom he told them where the cleanest one was. Use this company for a tour and you won’t regret it. Thank you Phil for a great time.

    My wife and I were in San Francisco for 3 days and this was her first time to SF. This half day tour for us turned into a full day as we decided to take the return ferry from Sausalito option. Our day started with us boarding a tour bus which was a short walk from our hotel. The first stop was an observation station on the north side of the Golden Gate bridge. As the bus driver meandered through the city to get to the bridge, he provided some history and information on SF. The view from the observation station was very nice and it provided the tour guest with an opportunity to take pictures and use the rest rooms. Our next stop was Muir Woods where we had an hour and half to walk through the park and marvel at the size of the trees. Just amazing! Last stop was Sausalito where we and hour for lunch and sightseeing. My wife and I decided to take the return by ferry option which allowed us to spend several more hours in Sausalito to walk up and down the streets, go into art galleries and have an ice cream before boarding the ferry. The ferry back to Fisherman's Wharf was a nice boat ride. You pass right by Alcatraz on one side and the bridge ion the other. Upon arriving at Fisherman's Wharf, we went to see the Sea Lions on the docks and then after walking around for a but had a wonderful seafood dinner to finish our day.

    A great way to spend the day.
    The tour guide is very knowledgeable providing us with stories and history along the way. The wineries are worth visiting. But it would have been nicer if more Introduction of the wine production process can be introduced during the winery visits.

    While visiting Yosemite was a dream come true, this tour was made extra special and memorable by the tour guide, Rob. From the start of the early day he brought such a bright, warm, and engaging energy that got us all excited for the days adventures. He was a wealth of knowledge about San Francisco, the surrounding areas, and Yosemite - I learned so much in just one day from him. He expertly and safely drove us through the daunting (but beautiful!) roads up to the park. His great sense of humor, genuine desire for us to all have the best trip possible, and attention to detail to making sure we got to see all of the best views and sites made this trip better than I could have ever imagined. It was my first time doing a trip like this on my own and I’m so glad I had such a friendly tour guide in Rob. The park is gorgeous and a must see, the day is jam packed with so many incredible things to do and see, and it’s super convenient with the hotel pick ups and drop offs. I’ll happily take an extra nominal tour again especially if Rob is the tour guide!

    We really appreciated Don’s expert driving, his anecdotes from growing up in San Francisco, and the history of the city. Learned a lot. Muir woods is very special and beautiful - not to be missed. We liked getting to see the Napa and Sonoma Vineyards and wine producers.

    Pablo was a very friendly host who had lot of knowledge about the history of silicon valley and the companies there. He was very attentive to the things we wanted to do and also gave recommendations about San Francisco in general. We highly recommend this tour!

    I was last here in 1965 with two college friends. It seems changed in some ways, but all in all, the magnificance is still there. I think y daughter was very impressed. We were notable to stay as long as perhaps we'd like to, but my ability to move at my age made it a bit difficult. All in all, memories returned.

    I was expecting more wines and better ones. Bottles a little too pricy. AC was not working in the van

    This tour was an absolute joy for my husband and I. This was our first time to San Francisco and we knew we wanted to go to wine country. I was looking on Facebook and found a page that led me to a wonderful blog about Dylan's Tours and wine country. We were not let down. The pick-up by Lyft was on time and fairly inexpensive. Jeffrey was a treat. He was so knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. We had breakfast at a market with nice options. The Napa winery was beautiful and the people were very helpful. The cabernet was my husband's favorite. The plaza in Sonoma had many food choices. Jeffrey did not stir us wrong with recommendations for ice cream and other tasting rooms. The last winery was in Sonoma and the views were amazing. Lizzie was our hosts name and she made all of us feel special. The pinot noir was a treat for me. On the way back to San Francisco, we stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge and got great photos. I can not say enough about this experience and would suggest to all our friends in New Jersey this great tour. Thank you Jeffrey and thank you Dylan Tours.

    Only thing keeping the rating from being a 5 is the fact the bathroom didn't work in the bus.
    Well worth the money.

    Our driver and tour guide Marco was awesome! So personable and friendly! He went above and beyond to ensure that the group had a great experience. The bus was comfortable for the ride. The stops were all good but we could have went to a different vineyard than Sutter Home.....it was not impressive to anyone in the group.
