Brendan was a great tour guide. Very low key & personable. Good history & relevant info about current info. Sausalito stop was good. MuirWoods was special with redwoods. We were somewhat challenged to find the meeting point AND parking. Parking garage was actually close by on Hyde. We paid $35.

Good deal !
