Customer Reviews

Muir Woods Expedition℠ PLUS City Insider's Tour
– linda and joe f. on 10/28/2014

This All City afternoon tour (attached with a morning tour through Muir Woods) through SF was absolutely awesome. Our bus driver/guide, Genna, was just awesome, he was filled with all kinds of facts, history data and such of every part of the city he drove us through.......his skills in negotiating the streets/traffic were awesome too! He made sure we got to see the parts of SF connected with history, I especially appreciated seeing the area of Haight-Ashbury, so rich in history of the 60's. Genne managed to let us take a walking tour in the area and we experienced an amazing "artist's alley". The walss on both sides of the alley were painted end to end by various residents....each reflecting the moods/talants of the artists. It was absolutely amazing and we thank Genna for giving us this experience....he took the time to give all of us an amazing afternoon, a BIG highlight of our week in SF. BRAVO, Genna and Extranomical......so worth the $$$ and time.

Our Guide Paul who's knowldege of San Francisco gave us an insider view of the city and not just the regular tourist spots. Paul who's picture is NOT above, was courteous, polite, informative and very much intuned to making both Muer Woods & the San Francisco City tour both fun and interesting.
