A Recent Review of this tour

Gary was a GREAT guide for us! He gave us some great suggestions for Muir Woods that definitely maximized our time and enjoyment. On the way to Point Reyes, he took us to Mount Tamalpais State Park. We enjoyed a view of the surrounding SF area that was absolutely breathtaking. The vantage point at the park was a beautiful poppy filled grass lookout of the entire Marin County expanse. Completely amazing! Point Reyes was also great!!! Gary is very personable, accommodating, and knowledgeable of the area!
