We really enjoyed this tour. It is a long day but we enjoy the journey as much as the destination. The trip takes you through coast and mountains ( sometimes hidden by that coastal fog!) and through vast horticultural areas to that lovely seaside village...More

We had a great guide who provided good information and was quite friendly and helpful. Muir Woods was simply beautiful...but one hour was barely enough for a nice walk. We would have loved to spend time in the gift shop or grab a snack, but...More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to

businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish
respite.
