Paul was our tour guide and he is a treasure. A wealth of information with more knowledge about everything than I have about anything. Every step of the way Paul had information about everything we saw. Muir Woods was beautiful and the stops on the wine tour were fantastic. Highly recommended

Brian was our guide/driver. He was so great! He was informative and entertaining. We had a small group of 10-12 people which I enjoyed. The Muir Woods are gorgeous. We had over an hour there to explore. Next, we entered Sonoma Valley for our first winery stop. We enjoyed lunch in Sonoma square. FYI: Brian told us about a chocolate... More

Our tour guide Patrick was the best tour guide I had in a long time. Since he was born and raised in San Fran, and has had a variety of occupations, he has a vast knowledge of the areas culture and history. Patrick also makes the drive fun with knowledge games and good music.

I took the Yosemite day tour yesterday.  It was great! Brian was our tour guide, he was very informative, fun, and down to earth. He remembered everyone's name after the first try which I find impressive, especially since almost no one remembers my name on the first try. He gave the impression that he genuinely loved his job and made... More

Yosemite is beautiful and I'm glad I got to see the park, what I could see- went on a very rainy, snowy day- still beautiful. I couldn't stand the driver- wished he kept his hands on the wheel more instead playing with his iPod, eating, or trying to direct singing. He also should've put snow chains on as soon as... More

My family and I did two tours with Best Bay Area Tours and loved them! The small groups and passionate guides made both days fantastic! Shout out to Patrick for making the 14hr Yosemite day fly past with his great music and historical information. Paul (the Scottish guide - sorry if the name is wrong) was hilarious and gave us...

We chose Best Bay Area Tours to visit Yosemite based on Trip Advisor reviews. Pickup was punctual and there were 7 people on our tour. The mini van/ bus was a good size for the number of people. Our guide was Patrick who had great knowledge of the areas we passed through and gave thoughtful insights as we made our... More

We chose this tour because it was a small group, left early and allowed more time at Muir Woods. Brian, our driver/guide, was informative and entertaining, taking us past various movie locations on the way out of S.F., stopping for a photo op of the Golden Gate Bridge, and giving us an hour and forty-five minutes to explore Muir Woods,...

What a great day we had on our 13 hour round trip to Yosemite. Patrick our tour guide was early to pick us up at our hotel. Smaller van, we had 7 people on our trip which was fantastic, more personal. Patrick was the most knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. The music, the stories he told kept us interested for...
