Comfortable bus. The bus also had windows for the entire top and sides which allowed us to see the golden gate bridge as we drove across it (that was pretty cool!) The bus driver was very friendly and kept us entertained on the way to and from the Muir Woods.

Good Quick tour if you are short on time

I only had a half-day free for SF and really wanted to see the Forrest - this fit the bill although it is listed as a 3hr tour, then I got my confirmation it said 3.5hrs and in reality, it was more like 4.5 hrs so plan accordingly - The 9 am tour was perfect not too crowded and Muir Woods did not disappoint just breathtaking! Our tour guide was great and very informative - I would do it again if I was short on time! Also super safe for a woman traveling alone!
