Muir Woods is a place almost, out of this world. It is the nature at its best! The services provided by Tower Tours to travel to Muir Woods were excellent. Their guide was very knowledgeable & the bus was clean.

George was our driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and has a great sense of humor. The coastal drive was absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this tour if you want to learn and experience great locales in California.

Great tour. Willie was an awesome tour guide passionate and knowledgeable about the city. He provided plenty of tips on places to visit. Alcatraz is a fascinating place which provides a glimpse into the dark side of our not so distant past.

Alcatraz suitable, ramp off+on boat. Majority of tour accessible to mobility scooter on island. The bay cruises all ramp entry- plenty to see this way.
