Redwood Sequoia huge evergreen trees, Monterey immediately after the bay named (the king of the mountain) was discovered, in the mid-1500s, has been "discovered" in conjunction with the land that is California after by the Spaniards. Soon, both the bark and heartwood containing a large amount of tannin from it is reddish brown, it came to be commonly referred to as Redwood. environment and its wide area to which they are raw breath has grown into a huge tree. For many years, I am fascinated by people who saw. Initially, the builder who is, Redwood had been considered to be inferior compared to other building wood. However, it is the people of the building made from redwood was found that long-lasting. State of buildings and houses, these huge trees from cutting wood was used. This era, scientists have discovered a variety of properties and to study the Redwood. 2000 old and to indicate the annual ring, lead to stem with a diameter of 7m, the height is 250 ~ 350ft (80 ~ 110m). Scientific name, was named Sequoia Sen Pell Wie Reference <Sequoia sempervirens> (the famous Native American President and Latin after "always alive" to mean.). Millions of acres of land, has been cut down in the worst way for the environment. This one million years, it had been breeding in all regions. But today, the elongated San Francisco coastline width 80㎞ ranging 640㎞ from the state border of Oregon to Monterey in the south, is the only natural habitat. From deforestation in more than 100 years ago, it was created very early growth, and parks and protected areas that can grow up without huge size be disturbed lot. Forest and also, that has not been rampant human That said is only about 5 percent. The Muir Woods, it's what the place where it was said so.
Muir Woods is located in the place of only about 24 km from the center of San Francisco, but the road is steep. Red Wood, while the further distant forest has been dramatically reduced, by the laws of economics for the reason that very rich place, was stomach without being as it is cut down. However, we San Francisco 1906 earthquake, had changed everything. Because, become homeless 250,000 things people suddenly, I had purchased the wood for reconstruction.

Me and my husband did the wine country & muir redwood tour with tour guide Frank. He was awesome, very engaging & entertaining when we spent our time travelling to our destination & we learned a lot of the history of san fran from him that we didn't learn anywhere else. We would definitely book another tour with Extranomical. !!! 5 stars and more.
– Cherona D. on 07/23/2018
This experience was well worth the price. I feel like I had two totally different tours. The visit to Muir woods was simply magical. The trips to Sonoma and Napa were awesome. I highly recommend this tour. Our guide and driver Aoka was a pure delight.
– Chris A. on 07/23/2018
We had a great time. The trip was well thought out and organized. Our guide Kim was very knowledgeable of the area and wineries and was extremely accommodating to all of our needs. Would gladly tour again.

– Victoria V. on 07/16/2018
A lovely day spent visiting wine country and Muir Woods. Yesterday, we went on our tour to Muir Woods and Sonoma and Napa! It was a great way to spend the day and it was nice to have seen the woods and get a taste of Napa and Sonoma. Lars was our tour guide and he was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and made the drive go by quickly while we learned more about the history of the places we were staying! All in all I would highly recommend this trip, especially if you’re short on time and want to see wine country in a day!
– Nicholas S. on 07/16/2018
Tour was a really fun day. The Muir woods in the morning and the wine tasting destinations were great. So was the tour guide.
– Karen G. on 07/16/2018
What a great tour!! Lars was an awesome tour guide—the trip to Muir Woods was amazing and the wineries were great. We highly recommend the lunch!!
– Phyllis G. on 07/16/2018
OUr tour guide/driver was excellent. Funny, trustworthy, and knowledgeable about the area.

– Erin D. on 07/16/2018
Very Nice Tour. Muir Woods was breathtaking. The wineries were nice as was the lunch.
– Sandra Z. on 07/13/2018
Great tour. Guide was excellent. Great wineries. The Muir woods experience was very scenic.
– Jon M. on 07/13/2018
Simply amazing! The tour itself was excellent with a great itinerary and very scenic views and lots and lots of great wine. Muir woods was breathtaking and an experience that everyone should have. Our tour guide, Roman, however, was what made the trip a true experience. The man was not only incredibly knowledgeable, but he also had us all laughing pretty much the whole day. Roman really knows his stuff and you can tell he loves his job. We made friends with people from literally all across the globe, from New Zealand to Toronto, to India and South Korea. Basically, it was my favorite day in San Francisco! Perfect trip! Thanks Roman!!
– Katrinia M. on 07/13/2018
Thank you Driver Kimberly! We enjoyed the Muir Woods, Napa & Sonoma tour on 7/7/18. Our driver was Kimberly and I have to give her EXTRA high praise for holding the front seats for anyone who experiences car/motion sickness - that'd be me. I couldn't have appreciated it more to be able to actually enjoy the trip instead of suffering through feeling sick the entire time. In addition, Kimberly made the tour enjoyable, sharing numerous facts & so much history of the areas we visited. Our only negative was that we thought we'd be visiting a sparkling winery and that didn't seem to happen. The last winery we visited was just ok.
– Kristen U. on 07/13/2018
Perfect Day Trip. This tour was as exactly what I was hoping for! It was a nice convenient way to explore things just outside San Francisco. Our tour guide had us laughing the whole time and was knowledgeable. We had plenty of time at each of the spots. I was also pleasantly surprised with two of the wineries. They were smaller and more personal than I was expecting. It turned out to be a perfect day!
– Michael K. on 07/13/2018
Wonderful experience! Our tour guide was fantastic!!
– Amy A. on 07/12/2018
Our tour was great!! We especially loved our driver Roman - he was so informative and made the trip perfect! I do want to comment on the wineries we visited: we visited Mayo Family Winery first - and they set the bar high! Our guide was extremely patient in her explanations of the process of wine-making, and the portions were very generous - also, we could sample up to 7 wines with no extra charge. All the staff we encountered were fabulous! So glad we made our purchases here! The 2nd winery we visited (Kieu Hoang) was great for pictures because it’s a beautiful place, but that’s about it . We received very small portions of the couple of wines available for tasting, and then the “sales pitch” began. There was an arrogance in the staff that was very off-putting. The 3rd winery we visited was Cline - it was a good experience. Beautiful grounds and helpful staff - they did take some time for different explanations and have a neat gift shop. Prices were good as well. Overall, we loved the experience, especially our last stop at Marin Headlands coming back into SF. Amazing place for pictures! So thank you, Roman, for that!!
– Denise B. on 07/12/2018
Wonderful experience!! Our guide, Roman, was exceptional and very knowledgeable of the area!! Loved 2 of the wineries we visited. The Mayo vineyard was our favorite and ordered several bottles to be shipped. This vineyard explained the making of their wine which was very interesting, The Cline vineyard also was very nice and gave us a few pointers on their wine and we tasted around 5 of their wines. My suggestion for the tour company is to possibly find another vineyard than KieuHoang... they were not as friendly or informative as the others vineyards (in my personal opinion) also, they only let us taste 2 of their wines and were pushy in trying to sell their wines. Roman was awesome in pointing out sights along the way! Muir Woods was lovely! Our lunch on our own in Sonoma was delicious ... we had the salmon sandwiches at The Plaza Bistro. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Sonoma/Napa and as a plus it includes Muir Woods!!
– Mark A. on 07/12/2018
Amazing Tour! First off, our tour guide Roman made our tour what it was (11 out of 10)! From the witty and almost corny jokes to the inclusion, this tour was an absolute blast. You start off on a bus with a bunch of strangers and as the tour continues it becomes more and more like a bachorlette party where everyone is having a great time. My buddy and I (both in our late 20s) enjoyed Roman’s humor and recommendations. Would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in doing a lot all in one day. With prompt timing (and good traffic) you can visit the Muir Woods, 3 wineries and the lookout of the Golden Gate Bridge (from the opposite side of the city). Roman made the everything feel very personable and my friend and I would highly recommend!
– Julie H. on 07/10/2018
Lars was amazing. He was very patient with everyone and very informative. Loved the Muir Woods experience and Wine Country was great. Each of the 3 wineries had different points highlighted.
– Vanetta S. on 07/10/2018
Our driver was very entertaining and pleasant think his name was Lars. He’s Dutch Great road trip and everyone seemed to have had fun.
– Dan L. on 07/10/2018

– Harish R. on 07/09/2018
Wow! Amazing day covering Muir Woods and three wineries in Sonoma and Napa stress free along with entire family.
– Candace B. on 07/09/2018
The tour and overall presentation was great.
– Andrew S. on 07/09/2018
Great tour guide. Wish we had a little longer to explore Sonoma.
– Robert R. on 07/09/2018
Roman was a great host. Very enjoyable day.
– Vinayak K. on 07/09/2018
Very good experience. Both the drivers were great. They were very knowledgeable and funny. The only thing is - we took kids on winery tour. I wish we were recommended that the tour is not for kids at all.
– Junaj P. on 07/06/2018
I very much enjoyed my tour experience with Extranomical Tours! I went solo and met people from all around the world. Our tour guide, Larce, was very knowledgeable and funny. Taking a tour with Extranomical was a great way to spend my fourth of July!
– Jose C. on 07/05/2018
Such an amazing tour !!! Highly recommended!
– Salil D. on 07/05/2018
Our family had great experience taking the tour with Extranomical. All their tour operators were great. This tour is well run and the guides make sure all are comfortable. 5 Stars.
– Julia M. on 07/05/2018
Great tour guide with an amazing tour group of all ages. Tour guide was very informative on history about the surrounding areas as well as top restaurants, cafes and bars - only wish this info was written down as locating some with difficulty
– Lisa S. on 07/05/2018
Perfect woods and wine! Lars was a perfect guide. Picked us up in Time and Drove ja safely the whole Time. Knew a lot about wine and history of the region and the tour was completed with a superb lookout over San Francisco from marine headlands. Booked only a day in advance and everything went smoothly! Thank you for a perfect day with wine and woods:)
– Marc T. on 07/03/2018
Awesome tour guide and driver! Jason's sense of humor added perfectly to the trip. Only thing is that I felt a little rushed during the wine tour. I would've liked more time to taste other wines and time to purchase bottles of wine. Overall very nice and would definitely recommend.
– Katri J. on 07/03/2018
Perfect, athough there was not any pick up service from our hotel. the guide informed everybody in the bus that we are staying at Days Inn. Our hotel is Drisco in Pacific Hights.
– Patricia S. on 07/03/2018
Great tour. Liked the small wineries we visited. Wonderful tour guide.

Jake did a great job and broadened our experience. Do believe your internet site should offer more detail on the excursion.
– Diana G. on 06/29/2018
This tour was great, driver was on time friendly and informative. Will definitely book other trips with this co.
– Kristin C. on 06/29/2018
Aoka did a fantastic job each step of the way on our tour!! Would definitely recommend!!
– Aine D. on 06/29/2018
We had booked several tours for our week in San Francisco and this was by far our favorite tour. Jake was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He was entertaining and knowledgeable and really made it a fun day. If you are lucky enough to get Jake you will understand why I am giving him 5 stars. The company themselves were easy to deal with and more than accommodating. Picking us up and dropping us off close to our hotel. I only wished I had done all my tours with Extranomical Tours as you guys knock the competitors out of the park.
– Adam S. on 06/29/2018
Awesome Wine Country Tour. We went on the Semi-Private Small Group Wine Country Tour from San Francisco in June 2018. Was a great day, first stopping at Muir Woods to see the giant redwoods and then visiting a winery in Sonoma, stopping in the town for lunch with wine followed by another winery tasting in town and then a final winery in Napa. The tour guide, Jacob, was entertaining and amazing and definitely made the trip memorable. Would definitely do this again.
– Sol C. on 06/29/2018
Fantastic, very good!Fantastic, very satisfied with Jay and Denisse!
– Paula K. on 06/29/2018
What a GREAT tour! Kimberly was a great tour guide! She made the travel to each of the stops (Muir Woods and the 3 wineries) entertaining and educational. Her personal knowledge of each stop was such an added benefit to this tour, thank you Kimberly for recommendations on the trails to walk in Muir Woods, which restaurants to eat at while at Sonoma Plaza, and the additional wines to taste at the wineries!! The redwoods were so beautiful to see and the forest was an enjoyable experience. The three wineries were each great in their own unique ways. Cline had well balanced flavors that fit my tastebuds just right, Mayo wines though were a bit too "in your face" as another tourist had put it for me (many others on the tour thoroughly enjoyed the flavor) and finally the science behind the wine at Kieu Hoang was most fascinating! Kieu Hoang is a true American success story!! Thanks Eric for allowing us to walk in the vineyard and see the grapes up close! A beautiful experience indeed! I would suggest this tour to others and would take it again myself!! Thank you Extranomical Tours, and especially Kimberly!!
– Denise C. on 06/29/2018
Great value-highly recommend it! Travis was our driver/tour guide-he arrived on time and kept us informed as we traveled to each of the stops. Muir Woods is beautiful and this tour allows you to see much of it, but you could spend much more than the allotted hour and still not see it all. The old growth forest is remarkable!! We enjoyed the variety of wineries that we visited. If you’ve never been to one and don’t know much about production and wine appreciation, you’ll learn some good stuff. Travis has a great sense of humor and that made the trip all the more fun!!
– Bernardo V. on 06/29/2018
Really enjoyed the tour. All stops were great and guide was fantastic.
– Gabriele P. on 06/29/2018

The trip was a great experience. Although I will say it was such a memorable trip thanks to our tour guide, Jason. He made the whole experience, educational, funny and entertaining. He has a great sense of humor and was very personable. I would definitely recommend this tour and if you have Jasón as your tour guide, you are guaranteed to have a great time.

– Anthony P. on 06/18/2018
This was a great tour. Muir Woods was amazing. I could have spent more time just walking around looking at all the magnificent trees. The Winery's we went to were also amazing. I really enjoyed Mayo Winery because they gave us the process on how wine is made. I would recommend this tour to everyone!!!

– Simon T. on 06/06/2018
Brilliant tour with Lars who was a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. The early start was worth it to avoid the queues and traffic. The only let down was the second vineyard with poor selection of wines to taste (personal thought).
– Wannee P. on 06/06/2018
Get a little of everything! Roman was a fantastic guide. He filled our drives with good information and funny anecdotes. We went to the Muir Woods, 2 wineries in Sonoma, and one winery in Napa. The diversity of the tour is fantastic. You are allotted about 1 hour at each destination. The timing is a bit rushed, but overall I am very happy with everything that we were able to see.
– Chandra D. on 06/06/2018
Like the tour Would recommend more time in Muir Woods Also recommend the drivers to talk less
– Martie H. on 06/06/2018

Very good tour - I recommend it! The tour was very well planned, it went smoothly and on time. The guide was super friendly and professional. They picked a very good selection of wineries for us to get a good taste of what Napa and Sonoma have to offer. I recommend it.
– Danielle G. on 06/04/2018
My sister and I had a great time on this tour and highly recommend it, especially if you've never been to Napa/Sonoma before. Jake was our guide and the rest of the reviews speak the truth; he was terrific! We had the perfect amount of time in Muir Woods in the morning to explore, and I'd definitely recommend going there with a bus tour since parking can be really difficult there. The only thing that we would change is taking out the first winery stop because, while the people were nice and the wine was good, we didn't feel like we had enough time at the second two wineries to fully appreciate them. It wasn't rushed, per se, but the second two were our favorite locations. We also loved stopping at Sonoma Plaza for lunch - eat at the Sunflower Cafe!
– Danielle W. on 06/04/2018
Most wonderful experience! Booking was simple and easy. Meet some great people from different states and countries. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of my trip when I visited San Francisco for a solo adventure. My tour guide Jacob...total snack!!! He was easy to communicate with. He knew his stuff and was able to provide information and history on locations and attractions we passed through. He went above and beyond expectations! If I could give 10 stars, I would. Highly recommended!
– Patricia M. on 06/04/2018

Great tour with Roman. We had a great time on our tour. Roman was a great guide with tons of suggestions and had us laughing the whole trip. The wineries were all very generous with their tasting and got great views of the red woods and the golden gate. Would highly recommend.
– Scott S. on 05/30/2018
Roman was very knowledgeable. He was also very funny. He tried to accommodate everyone. The wine tastings were great and the redwoods were amazing. I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Roman

Second time on this tour. Both were great
– Jody G. on 05/30/2018
Phil did an excellent job no problems. Everything was fine. There was a group of 4 girls (women) rude individuals. That thought the world owed them something that Phil had to deal with. Phil handled them better then i could of! Thank you

– Vincent D. on 05/23/2018
From start to finish this was a wonderful tour - our guide Jake was so pleasant, helpful and informative. I would recommend this tour
– Kurt K. on 05/23/2018
We did the Night Alcatraz and Sonoma/Napa Valley Wine tour. As an added bonus we got a pass to the Aquarium of the Bay. What a great deal and a great way to see all we saw. Our guide for the wine tour was awesome. Mitch was the best tour guide I've ever met. Not only was he knowledgeable but very personable. Having Mitch made the experience so much better!
– Lauren C. on 05/23/2018
Kimberly was such a great tour guide! She made sure we saw the best parts of the tour! She was very informative and nice. Thank you for making this trip memorable. This was my favorite part of the trip!!
– Simona G. on 05/23/2018
Ayoka was wonderful in every way! She not only provided useful information about the sights, she also invited us to reflect, contemplate and be a little kinder along the way, more than I thought I'd get out of a simple tour to Muir Woods and the wine country. Highly recommend!
– Nhi Q. on 05/23/2018
Jake was awesome. He kept us on a tight schedule going from one place to another, but it didn't seem rushed. He made the ride very entertaining and was very clear in his communication. Highly recommend this tour for both the excellent morning hike at Muir Woods and the variety of wineries!
– Nikki T. on 05/23/2018
The tour was great and we got to see a lot. The selection of wineries was great. Our driver Ramon was excellent. We did the upgraded lunch option and the lunch was amazing
– Lori M. on 05/23/2018
Lars, our guide & driver, was very knowledgeable & friendly. He ensured that we all knew pertinent information of the history & current happenings of all the places we visited. He also gave clear, concise instructions as to our time frames at each location so we could plan our time there, but when to be back at the bus to continue to our next location, so we could get full enjoyment at each stop. We thoroughly enjoyed our day! Thanks!
– Michael H. on 05/23/2018
Travis was great, and the tour was amazing. My girlfriend and I both loved every part of it. It was worth it!!
– Richard C. on 05/23/2018
We had a brilliant day out to Muir Woods followed by a wine tour - nothing bad to say at all! Jake our tour guide was excellent - just the right mix of professionalism, enthusiasm, energy and humour. He got us to Muir Woods in time to beat the crowds which was perfect. The bus was modern, clean and comfortable too!
– Val R. on 05/23/2018

An awesome visit of Muir Woods, Sonoma and Napa.
I have enjoyed every minute of our trip. From the time we were picked by Aoka until the end of our trip. She has a great sense of humor, winning personality, very knowledgeable. She is fun and it is very contagious so all of us in this tour ending up like we have known each other in such short period of time. She is an asset to your company. I am so glad i took the tour. Practicalwanderlust bloggers did a good job promoting your business. Thank you.
– Candance C. on 05/15/2018
Great tour! it was especially fabulous with tour guide Phil. He was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. He was very personable and cared for all our needs. Anyone who gets him as a tour guide will be very lucky!
– Armando G. on 05/15/2018
A tour we looked forward to.
We greatly enoyed having Lars as our guide. He gave a lots of information and tips. Our lunch was wonderful. Meeting the winemakers and seeing the beautiful wineries was something we had wanted to do for some time. The Muir Woods were cool and the morning was cloudy. Seeing them in shade was nice. It was a very pleaseant way to spend a day. Stopping under the Golden Gate bridge on the way back in was awesome too!
– Alexandra L. on 05/15/2018

Our tour guide Aoka was incredible. Very knowledgeable and funny!
– Dan M B. on 04/25/2018
Made our trip to San Francisco a blast! Very easy to book, communication was great and trip was run very well. Christine was a great driver and very knowledgeable tour guide. She made it a lot of fun.
– Violeta C. on 04/25/2018
The tour was amazing. Highly recommended, the perfect combination nature and wine! We went to 3 vineyards, I think I tasted like 11 wines there, plus the three in the VIP lunch, so really nice. The tour guide Cristine was so sweet and really good, she knows a lot about wine and she was sharing with us all her knowledge during the tour. Really great guide! She is amazing.
– Tricia F. on 04/25/2018
Wine/Muir Woods Tour.
Tour was amazing! Guide Kimberly was so informative. She had a great attitude, we were always on time and she played great music! Highly recommend!

Really enjoyed this tour, if you have a day to check out the wine country then I would trust these guys implicitly.
– Kathie C. on 04/25/2018
Aoka, our tour guide and driver was extraordinary. Her knowledge and fun attitude made the day perfect. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested. Will definitely do this again if I'm ever in California.

Ben made it a very enjoyable excursion. Easter Sunday was a busy day but we still managed to fit everything in. Worth the money. You see lots!
– Ivan K. on 04/13/2018
Frank was truly one of the best guides we have ever had.
– Andrew R. on 04/13/2018
Our Redwoods and Wine Country tour exceeded our expectations. We were picked up on time and Phil was the most entertaining guide we have ever encountered. He kept everyone entertained while informing us about the history of the sights as we passed them. I would definitely recommend Extranomical Tours for anyone looking to experience a wonderful tour in San Francisco.
– Maureen S. on 04/13/2018
The price was great and the tour was wonderful. Well organized. Ben was the best tour guide and driver.
– Deborah R. on 04/13/2018
Awesome tour if you have limited time.
Kimberly was fantastic. Safe driver, fun, and strict about schedule on time. The weather was perfect which made everything much more enjoyable. The 3 wineries were very different from each other. First: Kieu Hoan, was beautiful (great for pictures) and the winners were REALLY good as well. Second: MAYO, was VERY informative lots of chemistry involved and the characteristics of wine and wine making process, not as appealing to the eye or pictures. Third: Trek, was different and fun, good information on wine process. THE LUNCH was a bit rushed, and MUIR WOODS was also a bit rushed, but is was absolutely beautiful (probs for getting us there before all the crowd) Overall, great tour if you have limited time in San Fran area and you don’t have a car. (Quick stop at Golden Gate Bridge at end of tour for a photo).
– Viridiana H. on 04/13/2018
Amazing tour perfect for our timing and transportation needs.
– Vanessa W. on 04/13/2018
Great tour to the Muir woods and Napa valley, definitely worth the money. Thanks, Jacob, for the guide too.
– Elishia H. on 04/13/2018
Jacob was great! He had us laughing and kept the tour running on schedule! Picked us up right from our hotel. We got the Muir Woods before the crowds, word the wise take from motion sickness pills, those winding roads are no joke! The three wineries were nice, and each offered completely different tastings. I will definitely use them again!
– Rachel G. on 04/13/2018
We had the most wonderful day on our Extranomical tour. Aoka was knowledgeable and funny and provided us with a wonderful experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

– Stephanie G. on 04/13/2018
Great tour and leader!
Phil was an AMAZING tour leader. The all day wine tour was perfect! We went to the beautiful Muir Woods, 3 wineries, and lunch in The Square. Phil kept us entertained and informed all day. He even gave us pointers for the rest of our vacation. I would tell everyone to take this tour (and request Phil!!!)
– Michael & Barbara K. on 04/13/2018
Was outstanding experience. So much done in just one day. Muir Woods was peaceful as we really did beat the crowds. Visiting the different styles of wineries gave unique insight to industry. Ending day overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge & the bay was cherry on sundae. Oh yeah, Jake was terrific knowledgeable guide.
– Pat F. on 03/30/2018
The experience was lovely and the guide was great. The National Park was absolutely gorgeous and it would have been great to stay a little longer but understandly, we could not. Wine country was another beautiful experience and the wine and lunch served was delicious. Overall, highly recommend for a fun day!
– Jennifer Ann M. on 03/30/2018
Wineries and lunch exceeded expectations and Aoka was FANTASTIC.
Aoka was a very energetic and informative tour guide; this was infectious to the group. This was always going to be a good tour but Aoka made it exceptional; we wanted to talk and listen to her, and we also made sure we were on the bus before departure ... to watch what happens next. Winery destinations were enjoyable and the lunch exceeded expections.
– John T. on 03/30/2018
Great host and super day experience.
– Daniella D. on 03/30/2018
The tour was amazing! Such a great experience into the redwoods and after visiting the vineyards. The Napa was great, and we could also visit the wine production. Our lunch was in a place with a lot of different types of food. The others 2 vineyards was awesome because you can see different productions. Great experience!
– Sandy B. on 03/30/2018

Aoka the rockstar
Aoka was very knowledgeable n entertaining. She was a very good driver too. She exceeded our expectation. She played beautiful songs.
– Pamela O. on 03/22/2018
We used Extranomical Tours several times in Hawaii. They were always on time and both the drivers and the guides treated us like family--calling us cousins. They were funny, knowledgeable, attentive, accommodating and treated us professionally. I imagine that if you do this day in and day out, it's hard to make the trip fresh; but they did for us with each ride/tour, making jokes and doling out tidbits of information as we rode around. We were very impressed.
– Krista S. on 03/22/2018
Excellent tour! Thanks Kimberly!
My mom and I went to San Francisco to celebrate her birthday. This tour was so amazing! We easily communicated with the organizers as to where to be picked up, the bus was on time and really comfy! Our guide really made the whole experience even better, her name was Kimberly. She was SO knowledgeable and lovely. Kimberly was helpful and made the trip so much fun! I would highly recommend to everyone. What a beautiful city and such a great way to show you some interesting parts!
– Alyssa R. on 03/22/2018
Amazing tour! Jacob, our guide, was great and provided us with plenty of interesting information! Every stop was perfect and the whole group was interactive! If you want to have fun and learn a lot, do this tour!!!!!! Thank you for creating a day we will never forget!:)

– Joel S. on 03/15/2018
Five Stars - Sun or Rain, the amazing enthusiasm, knowledge and humor of Anthony made the day. Despite the untimely clouds and rain, I had a blast going to Wine Country and the Muir woods with Extranomical Tours. I would highly recommend the tour experience to any friends, and make sure you ask for Anthony!
– Gabriana P. on 03/15/2018
I usually never leave reviews but I HAD to leave one for this company! I'm a person that thoroughly does research before I go on a trip and let me tell you that the Redwoods, Sonoma, and Napa Valley tour is honestly the best bang for your buck! I looked at over 50 tours and this was the best priced. As for the actual tour...it was AMAZING and an unforgettable experience. Kimmy was our tour guide and she was just great! I would highly recommend this tour to my friends and family and anyone thats visiting San Fran. I would go back on this tour in a heartbeat. Thank you Extranomical tours for making my Birthday Weekend in San Fran that much more amazing and special!
– Matthew B. on 03/15/2018
Phil was a great guide. He was pleasant and very knowledgeable about San Francisco, Muir Woods, and the wine country. We enjoyed our tour very much. Thanks Phil!!
– Cassie T. on 03/15/2018
Perfect "Taste of Wine Country" Day Tour!!
Phil was AWESOME! So fun and really went the extra mile with us. It was a really great, really memorable day! I have already recommended Extranomical to a Facebook travel group I belong to!
– Chris S. on 03/15/2018
Was a birthday trip I planned for my girlfriend as a surprise visit to SF! This tour was recommended by a friend as she told me how amazing it was for her last year and I totally agree!! Our tour driver Kimberly was amazing! She made the drive safe, fun, and informational as she taught us many things about her city as we made our drive! Dont hesistate and get your ticket! The Muir woods was beautiful and ALL the wineries we got to experience for one cost was great!!!!
– Babette B. on 03/15/2018
It was wonderful. Best driver. Very funny. A lot of laughing. It was raining but very interesting and informical Tour. I can highly recommends it.
– Lydia K. on 03/15/2018
my tour guide Anthony what an awesome guide and humor.
– Shruti S. on 03/15/2018
You have to do this tour - 100%! Our guide Anthony was AMAZING and very entertaining. It was a great day that started off with about an hour and fifteen minutes at the Muir Woods - Anthony even told us how far to go in the trail so we would make it back in time before the buss left. Next, we went to a smaller winery in Sonoma, which, in my opinion, had the best wines, but wine is wine :) Then we did lunch and went to two more wineries after lunch. The drive to the wineries from Muir Woods took some time, but with Anthony time flew by, and it hardly felt like 30 minutes! 10/10 would recommend to others.
– Robin O. on 03/15/2018
Must do tour
We did the Anthony tour and celebrated with thirty somethings. Wonderful guide, great advice, magic day - he even made the Golden gate Bridge disappear! !
– Sarah C. on 03/07/2018
Kimberly was an awesome tour guide. We really enjoyed the tour.

– Dee C. on 03/07/2018
Jacob was fantastic, our bus was very nice and the tours were wonderful! Every stop was planned perfectly and I feel like we really received a great value for our money. We will ask for Jacob’s tour again :) Thank you!!
– Nicole D. on 03/07/2018
We loved our tour guide! He was friendly and informational but also laid back and relaxed which made for a perfect day! He picked us right up outside Hotel Carlton on Monday 2/26 at 7:45 and took us to the redwoods and then wine country tour- i wish I could remember his name because we had the best time!!
– Dean D. on 03/04/2018
Anthony was our tour guide, and he was great. He knew so many facts, was extremely entertaining, and knew how to get around safely and on time.
– Jaime W. on 02/09/2018
This tour was awesome! Affordable, diverse, fun, and accommodating! We were unable to make our original reservation due to travel issues and they allowed us to sign up for a different date during our trip! The pick up was right on time by our lovely guide, Anthony. He was super funny, knowledgeable, and speedy :) The Muir Woods were beautiful, but chilly. Bring a jacket! Each winery had something special about it- the flavors, the views, the organization, the people, etc. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a fun filled day with lovely views :)
– Leanne R. on 02/09/2018
One of the highlights of my trip to San Francisco
I enjoyed every second of this wonderful tour. Our driver and guide, Ben, was friendly, informative and fun. He somehow managed to keep our large group on schedule. The Muir Woods were beautiful and an hour was ample time for a leisurely stroll and a few photos. We visited 3 lovely wineries, each with generous servings of a wide variety of tasty wines. The scenic drive through both the Napa and Sonoma valleys were so relaxing. Lunch in Sonoma was a highlight. I loved the gourmet sandwich and salad at the Sunflower Cafe. I highly recommend this tour!
– Todd F. on 01/02/2018

This tour was so fun!!!
This tour was so fun! My son and I did the Muir Woods tour and then 3 wine tours in Napa and Sonoma. Jacob was a hoot and kept us moving and entertained! He is a wealth of knowledge and very patient with all of our questions and shopping time! The bus was clean and the whole experience was professional from booking to drop off. I would recommend taking a tour with them
– Brandon T. on 12/01/2017
A +++ for EXTRANOMICAL AND ANTONY
Antony was awesome and was very knowledgeable, funny and the best guide we could of asked for and more! Extranomical had everything ready for us everywhere we went and we never worried at all. Antony made the tour perfect! Awesome tour and will definitely be doing more in the future on our next vacation! I would highly recommend Extranomical and Antony too anyone looking for an excellent tour!
– Hannah J. on 11/15/2017
Muir Woods Tour
We had a lovely morning in Muir Woods as well as taking the ferry back to San Francisco. We would definitely recommend this tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and a nice guy.
– Aaron M. on 11/15/2017
Not to miss!
What a perfect way to get a taste of Sonoma! The Muir Woods and Golden Gate Bridge overlook stops were icing on the cake. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day that was the right balance of activity and relaxation. I have no complaints about this trip. 1. Our tour guide was informative and funny; 2. We had undisturbed time in Muir Woods before the hoards of people showed up; 3. The three wineries we visited were excellent and had wonderful wine; 4. The wine pairing lunch (we added on) was excellent and it was nice not having to worry about picking a spot to eat. 5. The views of the golden gate bridge and the bay were incredible. It was picture perfect. I would take the same tour again the next time I visit San Francisco
– Wayne S. on 11/08/2017
Great the staff are so knowledgeable 100/100 ask for Kimberly
Fab company loved every moment
– A. D. on 11/08/2017
Muir Woods with Kim
Kim was a great guide. She provided interesting information, was funny, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this early morning tour, as the ease of stopping by the Golden Gate bridge without the crowds was a great photo opportunity. We also arrived at the woods before 9 and were able to get in free. Tip - there are some great photo opportunities during the drive up and down the valley to the woods. Worth the cost for the ease and convenience.
– Daniela M. on 11/08/2017
Fantastic tour of Muir Woods and 3 wineries
Driver is knowledgeable and provides e,cellent info regarding all aspects of tour. We could not have been happier with our tour. Loved Muir Woods, And each of the 3 wineries was excellent. I especially enjoyed Mayo Family Winery. Although a small facility the wines were superb and the hostess was great. But really having such an excellent professional guide from Extranomical made the day. Many thanks for an excellent experience.
– Todd P. on 11/08/2017
Muir Woods was amazing
Muir Woods was amazing! Our tour guide was on time, and she shared a lot of history. Great experience!
– Creed M. on 11/03/2016
Tour guide excellent! Very informative with history and wine.
– Amanda D. on 11/02/2016
I was pleasantly surprised and impressed at how wonderful of a day this was! The day was a little rough at first, since it was raining the tour bus was a little late to pick up. But once we were on board, the fun did not stop! Roman was an absolute riot, and kept us laughing all day. In addition, he had so much knowledge about the areas that we toured, and I really learned a lot of California history. The whole day was simply wonderful and I would highly recommend it to anyone with a day to kill in the San Fransisco area!
– Heidi G. on 11/01/2016
A great day!
– Christine S. on 10/28/2016
I had a great time! The day was full of interesting information and fun stops. My only recommendation is that we could have hit another winery in the afternoon. The stops were unnecessarily long and at most of them, the group was ready long before we actually left.
– Dennis C. on 10/28/2016
Cool tour but thought it was a guided walking tour through woods.
– Kurt B. on 10/23/2016
– Elizabeth O. on 10/20/2016
Overall, a very good experience. We did a lot in a short amount of time, but our tour guide never made us feel rushed. I think that the tasting rooms related to the size of the group was a bit off. Some people parked themselves at the counter and sampled a lot of wine, while others were pushed to the back and did not get to sample as much. I know you can't control people, but it would be nice if those at the wineries tried to cater better to everyone's needs or have additional staff.

Paul was pleasant, funny and knowledgeable. We had a blast!
– Bob M. on 10/12/2016
Elsa and I thought Steve was awesome!! He was kind, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. He was very professional, humorous and made our day extra special. We would highly recommend your tours going forward because of Steve. He was fabulous. We visit San Francisco annually and We can't wait to tour with him again. Please tell him we said hello.

Roman was an absolute riot and very knowledgable. Most enjoyable.
– Wence C. on 09/30/2016
Booked the Muir Woods and wine country tour two weeks before. Called and confirmed the tour and pickup location and time. The pickup was a five minute walk from our hotel at Fisherman's Wharf. Picked up right on time in a nice bus which comfortably carried the 20 plus people. Anthony did a great job narrating and making suggestions/tips. Thank goodness for the nice A/C in the bus as it was hot during the whole day especially in wine country. My wife and I really enjoyed the Muir Woods stop...a little more time would have been nice but the winery stops and lunch timed out perfectly. Glad I did not book the lunch upgrade as there were many places to eat at the Sonoma lunch stop. Recommend the Sonoma Cheese Factory and their excellent sandwiches. They are large and one would have been plenty for both of us. The winery stops were excellent as were the hosts and wines in the tasting rooms. Beautiful country and this part of the tour was enjoyed. Ran into backed up traffic a couple of times but only delayed our return by about 20 minutes. Thanks for the great music Anthony...you had everybody singing along.
Would highly recommend this tour.
– Wendy G. on 09/29/2016
I loved Muir woods. Roman was great. I found the wineries a bit boring.
– Steve F. on 09/23/2016
Bloody excellent trip. Best ever tour guide
– Jonell P. on 09/22/2016
Very enjoyable tour. Just enough time at the different stops to see what the location had to offer. Tour guide very entertaining and helpful.
– Hector S. on 09/18/2016
Lars was an amazing tour guide. We truly enjoyed ourselves. It was a good set up to the rest of the night.
– Diane P. on 09/15/2016
Talk about exceeding expectations ! Roman was knowledgeable, charming, and really, really funny. Muir Woods, of course, was gorgeous, and awe-inspiring.
– Brian J. on 09/15/2016
Great trip...driver was notch and very funny and engaging. Good van too. All stops along excursion were well timed
– James B. on 09/11/2016
Very professional tour leader and knowledgable

Very professional tour leader and knowledgable
– Chris P. on 09/07/2016
Great tour of the woods. First winery was nice but second winery, it almost seemed like we surprised them when we showed up (Tin Barn). Third winery was beautiful. Picked up and brought back on time. Wish the stop to view the bridge on the way back was a better view.
– Paige W. on 07/24/2016
Anthony was such a great tour guide! He was very knowledgable about every location and while driving gave us many facts about the city and surrounding area. On our way to the Redwoods he stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge so we could get pictures. He got us to Muir Woods early enough that he saved us the $10 entrance fee! We were able to spend time on our own in the park and then we made our way to wine country. He knew everyone at the wineries and gave us tips on how to have the best experience at each location. We had a wonderful day!
– Samantha T. on 07/22/2016
Anthony was a great tour guide! Knows a lot and was fun and friendly. Muir Woods was beautiful but I wish the time there was longer. My husband and I are explorers and love nature, so I guess a tour with time restrictions wasn't the best idea, but the hour-ish we had was good. Going to the Napa Valley area was good. All of the wineries were good. Mayo and Cline were good. Madonna was alright. If I have friends visiting the area, I would recommend them to use this tour as it was a great experience!
– Amy E. on 07/17/2016
Roman was very funny. We had a clear day and he took us all over to get great views of the Golden Gate bridge.
– Betty A. on 07/16/2016
Steve was a great narrator for a guy from Boston. He entertained us with details as we drove from San Francisco to Muir woods.
– Ken M. on 07/13/2016
We had an absolute blast with Extranomical tours. We ended up doing three tours with Phil, our guide. Phil was AWESOME!
Phil got us into the Muir woods park early, and we avoided the huge crush of people. He was super helpful.
He went out of his way to find the primo spot for Golden Gate Bridge pictures. We even saw whales swimming under the bridge!
Phil's utmost concern is to provide a really phenomenal experience. Would highly recommend Extranomical!
– Carl B. on 07/12/2016
Roman was great he kept us interested the whole trip.
– Edward T. on 07/08/2016
Muir Woods was very relaxing, although always watching the time.
Wine tasting experience: Mayo - the wine connoisseur was not that entertaining, but wine was okay. Madonna Estate - the wine connoisseur was very good, she walked us through the wine tasting process, of how to enjoy and savor the wine. The wine in the estate was superb. Cline - not so entertaining, and we were not shown the winery.
Our tour leader Curt was very knowledgeable in the various aspects of the places we visited. Very kind and entertaining. Thank you.
– Karen M. on 07/08/2016
Phil was great. He's got a great sense of humor, knowledge of the areas, tips and tricks relative to time and saving money! He was FUN!
– Jackie M. on 06/16/2016
– Patricia J. on 06/15/2016
We had the opportunity to meet some really great people because the tour was smaller and intimate. Our driver was fun and very interactive with us.
– Marilyn C. on 06/05/2016
Muir Woods was beautiful and would have preferred a little more time there. However, there were lots of wineries to visit and Anthony managed to ensure we visited all of them. Anthony was very knowledgeable and pleasant plus as a treat he provided us with a spectacular view on our return to San Francisco. Our Hotel, the Argonaut, was unable to book a Woods and Wine tour for us so thank you very much Extranomical.
– Jayne G. on 06/04/2016
We had a great day and our tour guide was very friendly and helpful.The trees were amazing and Steve told loads of stuff about them!
– Ariana H. on 06/03/2016
Anthony was absolutely fabulous. He made this tour a fantastic experience. He had plenty of information about the woods and the wine country and was also funny, charming and simply fabulous. I recommend this tour and company to anyone.
– Jerry K. on 06/01/2016
Anthony was very entertaining and made the trip very enjoyable I would ride with him anytime.my wife and I did enjoy the stops and the ride, thank you.
– Colleen M. on 05/31/2016
Roman made the tour memorable. He was knowledgeable, funny and was a skilled driver. We loved the morning visit to Muir Woods. It was great to beat the crowds. The wineries were inconsistent. At Mayo, the host shared some information along with the sales pitch. It was a good, quick stop. It was great to visit the square in Sonoma for lunch. We went to the Bistro Grille as recommended by our guide and while the service was slow, the food was delicious. We stopped at the Mission and walked through the tree filled park. Our stop at Cline's was the most successful. The wine was delicious and the hosts took time to discuss the varieties of grape and the wine making process. It was fun to sit back and relax on their giant wrap around porch. We should have stayed on the bus during the Madonna winery stop. We were stuffed into the tasting room there with a shrill, high pitched vocal fry host who started hard selling the 'special' wine opener seconds upon arrival. There was minimal wine education here. Thank goodness we finished the tour with Cline's. It was lovely to stop to take in the panoramic Golden Gate bridge view on the way back to the city. Many thanks again to Roman for navigating all the holiday weekend traffic and keeping the day moving.
– Robert K. on 05/27/2016
Would have preferred more time to explore the redwoods and less time at the small wineries.
– Michele G. on 05/26/2016
Loved the tour of Muir Woods and 3 wineries
– Arielle A. on 05/17/2016
Overall, our tour was very good. Our leader, Paul, was excellent. He was very knowledgable and funny. The only reason I did not give this tour a five is that I felt that we did not have enough time as I would have hoped at each vineyard. The Muir Woods were also beautiful. We spent about an hour there, which was the perfect amount.
– Sandra L. on 05/16/2016
It was a wonderful experience. Curt was informative, full of knowledge and very nice. I took the tour with my mom and she absolutely loved it. So worth it!
– Pamela O. on 05/11/2016
Excellent day tour from San Francisco! Well organized, timed, comfortable pace, great info!
– Pamela O. on 05/11/2016
Excellent day tour from San Francisco! Well organized, timed, comfortable pace, great info!
– Kjetil B. on 05/05/2016
Our tour guide was hillarius. Made the day completely! Well.... the Muir Woods was spectacular as well. And the wine was ok. :)
– Linda R. on 04/21/2016
Muir Woods was absolutely stunning! Phil, our driver, was able to get us to Muir before park opened to public crowds which meant - free admission and peaceful meandering in the woods. The accompanying wine tour was well orchestrated with 3 wineries both in Napa and Sonoma. Mid-day lunch in Sonomoa was perfect- lots of good recommendations from Phil! Overall, excellent value for the money- small tour van was comfortable and have I noted that Phil added wonderful color commentary, music and fun to the full day's events! Will definitely use Extanomical for future trips!
– Patrick C. on 04/19/2016
Everything was awesome and very informative. Anthony was a great tour guide. We would definitely use your company again.
– Jolene M. on 04/06/2016
This tour was amazing and worth every penny! Anthony was the best tour guide. He made me laugh a lot which I hadn't done in awhile. I came on this trip as a distraction because I am dealing with the loss of my son. I had a really good time. Muir Woods was cleansing and amazingly beautiful. Anthony got us there before the big crowds and before the $10 park entrance fee. Wine tasting was wonderful. All 3 wineries were great, but we especially liked Mayo and Cline Cellars. Thank you for providing a lovely distraction to my grief. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to spend a day outside of San Francisco.
– Marina D. on 03/15/2016
despite the weather, it was a very nice and educational trip
– Barbara T. on 03/12/2016
This was a wonderful experience and we really enjoyed Pam. She was a very safe driver and entertaining and informative. It would have been great to have had a little more time at Muir Woods. I would probably have picked up a little souvenir in the gift shop if I would have had an extra 15 minutes. I think we got off schedule because there were so many groups to pick up. Also, the tastings and lunch were a bit hurried, but I wouldn't want to miss any of the stops, so really no solution except having smaller tour groups. I also thought we might get to stand on GG instead of observing from overlook point. Overall, a grand tour. No regrets.
– Mike R. on 02/20/2016
We had a great time! Anthony was our guide, and everyone loved him. This trip was the hi-light of our San Francisco excursion. Muir Woods is beautiful!
– Tina s. on 02/15/2016
The perfect combo at a great price. We stayed in fishermans wharf, which was the perfect location to get around. We did not rent a car, I don't know how people drive on those hills, but we wanted to go to Muir Woods and wine country for some tastings. This was a great combo. Muir Woods for about and hour to walk around and see the giant redwoods and then 3 different small wineries. Stopped for lunch in between and right before heading back over the golden gate we turned off to go up to a viewing peek. The pictures don't do it justice. Such a great day. Our guide was funny and friendly and a great driver around those hills.
– Jenny L. on 02/09/2016
It was a great day out with a perfectly paced tour. This was largely due to our tour guide Anthony, being very informative with had a great sense of humour. I would recommend Extranomical tours to anyone, especially if Anthony was the tour leader.
– Julia V. on 02/02/2016
Phil was absolutely fantastic. He was a great tour guide, plus had a lot of local knowledge and insight into the city that made the rest of our stay better than if we had not done our Extranomical tour. I can't recommend him enough, he went above and beyond!
– carl j. on 01/31/2016
Anthony our tour guide was awsome kept us entertai the whole tour.
– Jason S. on 12/02/2015
Informative, and fun experience. Curt was full of interesting random facts and was very friendly.
– Joe L. on 10/29/2015
Ben was a great guide and sober driver for the wine tasting. The tour was setup well and gave us a good amount of time at each spot. Would definitely recommend it to others.
– WILLIAM W. on 10/16/2015
ROMAN WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ENTERTAINING. IT WAS OBVIOUS HE ENJOYED HIS JOB AND CARED ABOUT THE PEOPLE ON HIS TOUR. HE MADE THE TOUR A GOOD VALUE AND A VERY PLEASANT DAY.
– Tom N. on 10/14/2015
We had taken the City Tour on Tuesday and had Phil as our tour guide. We enjoyed his knowledge of San Francisco and his humor during the afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised to find he was also our tour guide to Muir Woods and the wineries. Could not have asked for a better day or tour guide. Would highly recommend this company to anyone. We were picked up exactly on time if not a few minutes early both days. Everyone felt very comfortable and had a great time during the day, even though our van was packed!
– Keval P. on 10/12/2015
The our was really fun. Starting the tour with a small hike in Muir woods was a great start to the morning. The choose of wineries was a bit odd. Mayo and Cline were great, however taking us to Madonna was a bit odd considering the tour guide knew that it was not a good spot.
– Dennis W. on 09/23/2015
Great guide with plenty of time at each stop.
– Sheila M. on 09/22/2015
Roman was highly entertaining & engaging throughout the tour. The wineries weren't really to our tastes but he certainly made up for it. All in all, an enjoyable experience.
– Melissa B. on 09/13/2015
Very good tour. The guide was very knowledgable and had a great personality. He never idled during the drive. He always was giving us history on all of the areas as we drove by. Thanks for a great day.
– Marie R. on 08/30/2015
Tour guide was awesome
– Leo J. on 08/11/2015
Our German guide had a great sense of humor and he was informed as well.
– Brandon M. on 07/17/2015
We ended up using Extranomical tours because another tour company canceled half of our Wine/Muir woods tour the day before we were supposed to go due to road closures and we are very happy they canceled. Anthony was great! He navigated us through the road closure the other company apparently couldn't do. He made the trip very pleasurable and would recommend Extarnomical for this tour over their competition. Thanks for the fun day!
– Colleen B. on 07/16/2015
Hello, tour guide more informative about the wine tour then the actual wineries. First winery not bad, the last when Kline very good but the second wine, I believe Madona, was a waste of time. Not a very informative about the wines just wanted to sell something. It was like we were an inconvience to have us there. This seemed like the overall impression of most people on the tour. The man did not have a very pleasant personality at all. Kline excellent, very pleasant!! Should skip the Madona one, wines were not very good either. Most people bought from Kline.
– Vicki S. on 07/06/2015
I would definitely recommend Extranomical Tours. The trip to Muir Woods and Sonoma/Napa Valley was great! Our tour guide, Andy was superb! I would have liked a little more time to explore the woods but otherwise excellent!
– carol d. on 06/28/2015
Anthony was an awesome guide and the tour was perfect. Muir woods, Napa and Sonoma all in one day! The entire day was wonderful. Cannot wait to go on another tour with Extranomical! Thank you!
– Angela R. on 05/28/2015
I am so glad my husband and I selected this tour while visiting San Francisco. Everything about it was fantastic! The bus was nice, the people on board were friendly and Ben, our guide, made it fun, interesting and informative. The Muir Woods and Wine tour are a wonderful combination for a full day of nature and wines. I do wish, however, we would have more time at the last winery (it was THE BEST of the 3 we saw) and it seemed we were rushed...we had ample time at the other 2 but due to traffic our time was cut short at the last stop. Also, the Sonoma Visitors Center was a lovely surprise! We enjoyed lunch in the park and a nice stroll through the historic/beautiful shops.
– Leslie K. on 05/18/2015
Great tour. Anthony seemed very knowledgeable about the area. This is my second time taking this tour. I learned different things from each tour.
– Jason M. on 05/17/2015
We really enjoyed the drive and trip. The wineries were also fantastic and Ben kept us all entertained during the drives with historical information or the sites and locations.
– Gayle N. on 05/17/2015
Roman was an excellent guide and gave us so much information. He made the whole trip fun and enjoyable.
– eugene t. on 05/11/2015
This trip was really worth the time and money. Nine of us went together and everyone really enjoyed it. Ben is a very good driver and tour guide. He was very efficient picking everyone up and keeping us informed as we traveled around. We would definitely recommend this tour.
– Diana G. on 05/09/2015
really enjoyed Muir woods. Sonoma was charming. Frank was very entertaining.
– Leigh H. on 05/05/2015
I am so grateful we went on this tour. I booked several tours wile in the San Francisco area all from different companies, and if we return I will book them all through Extranomical. This was by far the best experience.
– Lori R. on 05/03/2015
Roman went above and beyond any tour guide I've ever experienced. He was funny, knowledgable and the California music he played was such a wonderful added bonus I'm still thinking about it!!! Thank you Roman !!! I will surely request you if we come back!!
– Anthony P. on 04/06/2015
What a value this tour was! Great enthusiastic tour guide and very knowledgable! Loved it!
– Jeremy J. on 03/27/2015
Great trip. Curt was informative and made it an enjoyable day.
– Lauren M. on 03/11/2015
I was very impressed overall with the tour and did not feel like anything was rushed. The woods were beautiful and the 3 wineries we went to supplied different types of wine and information so that everything was kept interesting and new.
– Inesita b. on 03/08/2015
Great tour experience!!! Highly recommended. Anthony was an amazing tour guide!!! Really had a good time!!!
– Todd C. on 03/04/2015
Hi! This is what I posted on Trip Advisor: Netting it out: Great trip! Great guide. Excellent service. Do it! For those who like detail: My wife and I bought the Extranomical Muir Woods expedition trip for an afternoon trip on a Sunday in March. We had no prior experience with Extranomical but read the reviews on Trip Advisor which seemed mostly positive. Extranomical told us up front that the Sunday PM trip to Muir Woods wasn’t the most popular and the trip could be cancelled since the minimum was four people (made sense). They said they would work with us to get on another tour if that was the case. Even though we didn’t meet the minimum, Extranomical went ahead with the trip anyway which we didn’t expect but very much appreciated. We took the ferry to Sausalito (included in the trip price) and our guide picked us up right on time, exactly where they told us he would be. The tour guide, Phil was incredible. He was able to provide a little history along the short drive to Muir Woods and he included a few bonus stops at key scenic points for pictures. Saying Muir Woods was beautiful would be an massive understatement. What amazing, unique trees in a serene, well-preserved forest. Overall, we had a great experience with Extranomical tours and would highly recommend them to anyone. From a service and product standpoint, I believe we got more than we paid for. A few tips: When you get your e-mail confirmation from Extranomical, make sure it is accurate. The first confirmation we received said we were being picked up at the hotel but our particular afternoon trip picks up in Sausalito. A short phone call remedied this issue. Also, I confirmed the reservation about five days before (which I did with every tour). They had us on the books as planned, no problem. I also called one more time the day before just to make sure the trip was still on. If you take the trip departing from Sausalito, make sure you plan the ferry ride appropriately to get there before your departure time to Muir Woods. We took the 9:45am ferry to Sausalito, arriving at 10:45 for a 2pm departure to Muir. This gave us enough time to look around Sausalito and have an unrushed lunch at the Trident (great lunch!). Muir Woods has a paved path so no hiking shoes needed. There are dirt paths if you want to see less people. Extranomical advertises the longest time in Muir Woods comparted to other tours (one of the reasons we chose them). From the time we left the vehicle, we had about 1 hour and 45 minutes actually in the park. It could have been about 15 min longer but our tour guide included a couple bonus stops because my wife was a photographer. In our opinion, 1 hour and 45 minutes was enough to enjoy the beautiful Red Woods but I can see how people could easily spend a half day there, especially if you like to hike.
– Anna V. on 02/18/2015
It was more than a tour! It was an intellectual enrichment!
My daughter, who is 13 years old, was so impressed with all the information Genna gave to us!
The park is so beautiful!
– John G. on 01/27/2015
Phil arrived early which gave us the opportunity to arrive at the park before everyone else. He was very friendly and informative. He possessed a lot of knowledge of the area which made the tour fun and informative. Phil is a true asset to your co. I also sent comments for Ben who took us on a tour of Yosemite on 1-9-15. I hope you received it. He also was great.
– danny i. on 01/23/2015
Anthony was great he made the tour. he was very helpful and we had a lot of fun.
– George D. on 11/08/2014
The Muir Woods/Wine Country tour was fantastic. Roman,our guide, had us all laughing from beginning to end. He made the tour extra special. Anybody who visits San Francisco needs to put this tour at the top of their To Do list.
– Euna H. on 11/02/2014
Roman was so funny and he was so eager to bit other tour buses which is good for us to avoid packs of tour people^^ . he knows lots historical stories to tell in bus and was amazing he could narrate all the time when he was driving.
– Rick F. on 10/30/2014
Paul was great. Tour was great. People were great. Weather was great. It was just a great trip.
– Neil G. on 10/22/2014
The tour was the highlight of our San Francisco trip. Ben was a great tour guide who kept us laughing throughout the day. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting San Francisco.
– Gill B. on 10/11/2014
Very good tour, saw everything we wanted in a day. Vineyards well chosen & friendly. Loved lunch at Sonoma square
– Stefania P. on 10/08/2014
LEO was amazing! He is so funny that makes everybody feel great! Pretty good job.
– James S. on 09/28/2014
Nick was the perfect guide for this tour. Didn't talk too much or too little just right. Was really helpful pointing out the good restaurants in Sonoma. This tour was the best day of our week in San Francisco.
– Elaine B. on 09/26/2014
Excellent tour, but a little disappointed we could not get into Nappa. Traffic was bad, so I realize it was not Ramon's fault. Not enough time to enjoy Sonoma in the town.
Loved Muir Woods
– Carol C. on 09/03/2014
Tour was great. Wish we'd been able to spend more time in Muir Woods.
– Suzanne M. on 09/03/2014
Was a great day; Ben was very good and tried his best to keep people on time (some didn't listen). He was knowledgeable about the areas; and had a sense of humour. We really enjoyed our day.
– Stephanie L. on 08/15/2014
We had a great time. Muir Woods is pleasantly quiet in the early morning, and a great way to start the day. We enjoyed visiting both small and larger wineries. Our guide Andy was the best, interesting AND fun.
– Andrea B. on 08/15/2014
Paul was super nice and went the extra mile and took us to another site to view the San Fran bay from a higher place. Real insider tips .
– Mike and Nancy T. on 08/13/2014
Would have liked more time at Muir Woods and same for lunch/shopping in town.
– angela k. on 08/12/2014
great experience. fun. affordable.
– Dan D. on 08/03/2014
I have been on tours where the tour guide spends most of the bus ride talking and giving facts. This could have made it a more full experience. Overall good use of time though, and we saw the things I wanted to. Great tour!
– Jacqueline R. on 07/23/2014
Arriving at Muir Woods before it opened really added to our experience. It was also very nice to be the only group at the small wineries we visited, so our group received personal attention.
– Jeff B. on 07/12/2014
Muir Woods and Sonoma/Napa wine tours were great. Tour guide (Roman) was awesome-- hilarious and informative! Bus seats were a bit dirty and bus was bumpy, a/c was loud at back of bus and couldn't hear Roman while a/c was running -- which was too bad because he was great.
– Mattias S. on 06/30/2014
We had a really great day at the woods and wine tour. Very good guide, Nick, who knew a lot of San Fran history with some good jokes aswell :) we can truly recommend this trip, the woods are amazing, Sonoma and Napa valley offer great wines and all in one day! You will it regret going in this one :) once again thanks for a great day! :)
– Sohini B. on 06/27/2014
The tour driver Paul was very good explaining all the time and keep us updated with his expertise about the history of visits.Enjoyed very much and will introduce to friends.
– Anu M. on 06/24/2014
Everything we expected and fantastic spots to take photos visited in addition.
– David R. on 06/14/2014
I did the two day tour with Andy as my first driver and Leo as the driver on the second day. Andy did a super job. I enjoyed his knowledge and enthusiasm. I would definitely take another tour with him. The overnight stay in Sonoma was perfect for me. It's a really nice place to stay and see the sights. The restaurants in Sonoma are really great. The second day was also very enjoyable except for one thing. A couple with a baby took four seats and this relegated me to a seat between two other couples. I feel that because I was also a paying customer I should have had a better seat by a window. The driver Leo is a fun guy to ride with and really made the trip enjoyable. All in all, I would recommend Extranomical.
– David R. on 06/09/2014
Tour was great. Was paced just about right for us. Roman was great and we couldn't be happier with the tour. Really liked Muir woods, lunch at Sonoma, the Madonna winery, the side trip through Sausalito, and Marin Headlands. Mayo winery was ...well ok. The Cline grounds were beautiful, but the wine not so much. Definitely coming back to you for the Yosemite tour next time we are out this way.
– Misty D. on 06/06/2014
We really enjoyed the tour. My only note (which is why I did 4 stars instead of 5, although I'd say 4.5 stars) was that it would have been nice to have a tad more time at the Sonoma Square for lunch and a tad less time at the wineries. Once the tastings were over, we just sat around, but felt rushed at lunch. But, everything was great. We never found ourselves stuck in crowds. When we got to Muir Woods, we walked right in and when we left, the line for admission was really long. Hotel pick up & drop off was a piece of cake, price was right, and this tour made it so we didn't have to get a rental car. And, may I say, that our tour guide, Paul, was UNBELIEVABLE. Give that guy a HUGE raise!!!! He was fun, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable of the places we went and the city in general. We felt like we hit the jackpot having him as our guide for the day!
– James N. on 05/31/2014
Roman was fantastic! Would highly recommend him to any of our friends and family!
– Rachel L. on 05/30/2014
Beautiful sites, funny and interesting guide. Would recommend.
– Katie B. on 05/29/2014
Had a great time visiting Muir Woods and the Wine Country. Wish we would have had a little more time exploring but all that means is I need to go back!! Roman was a fantastic tour driver, very knowledgeable and kept us entertained. I would highly recommend a tour with him!!!
– Mary R. on 05/15/2014
This was a perfect tour for us. My husband could not walk a lot so the Muir Woods stop worked very well. The wine tour was excellent and I can not say enough good things about our tour guide. He was informative and so interesting at the same time.

Tour guide Andy was wonderful. He provided lots of interesting information between stops at Muir Woods and the wineries. He was very entertaining and made sure the group was having a good time. I like that our tour went to Muir Woods early in the day before the crowds showed up.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Kept the ride interesting with a variety of facts and jokes. Wineries we visited were great. Loved that we saw boutique wineries and not big ones. Muir woods was awesome. Would have loved more time there.

The stops were spaced out appropriately and we were given enough time at each destination. The first wine stop at Jacuzzi was a great spot and the wine hostess was very informative.
