Had an excellent day out in the napa valley tasting wines. Our tour guide was a very knowledable guy who had clearly done lots of research into the region and gave a great tour. Was very good when answering questions anybody had. Took us to 3 wineries and recommend a good choice of 5 places to eat lunch. Brilliant Day.

This was an amazing tour experience! We took the Monterey and Carmel by the sea tour and it was worth it!!! The driver was amazing and both the towns have little shops and are so cute!!! The food in the restaurants in the towns are good and you get a good amount of time for both of them!! The 17 mile drive through pebble beach was a great experience and had AMAZING scenic views of the ocean and the woods. This is truly a must do if you want to see both Monterey, Carmel, and pebble beach.

After the tour we had booked well in advance fell through with some of the worst customer service we have ever experienced, My wife was able to quickly book with Tower Tours at the hotel where the other company was supposed to, pick us up. Tower tours has their own location near Fisherman's Wharf, so we quickly taxied over there to get tickets and board the bus for Muir Woods. The driver was very informative and funny along the entire route, and we arrived at Muir Woods shortly with a 90 minute window to walk around the park. The trees are magnificent, and no matter how you might get there, this destination is highly recommended. After the 90 minutes, we re-boarded the bus for the short drive to Sausalito. We chose to exit at that time and spent the afternoon walking around this quaint town, had a late brunch (it was Sunday) at one of the restaurants on the water, and took the ferry back to San Francisco at our leisure. I would give Tower Tours a very high recommendation for their customer service and their overall ability to coordinate these types of tours.
