What people are saying about Sausalito

I don’t usually like yours or group activities but this was great. Eli was the best tour guide and stopped to tell us fascinating bits of history along the way. I took my 2 kids and while we didn’t go as fast as they would like, they really enjoyed seeing the city on a bike - and crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, which was on their teenage bucket list. We didn’t go to Sausalito because it was Thanksgiving and I didn’t think anything was open. But we had a fun solo ride back. Such a great way to explore Chrissy Field, the Marina District and learn about San Francisco’s military history.

I never use guides services and always try to do things on my own. But I am definitely glad I used Get Your Guide. No running or stressing or wondering what to do next. Showed up early, drank a pint at a nearby Irish Pub then we were on our way. Our guide, Parker, was great. Informative and fun. Told stories and facts along the ride. Explained exactly what to do at our stops. Good dude. Good trip. Plenty of time and no hassle or worry. Do it.

Muir woods is an amazing place. The forest is so impressive. Around 1h distance from SF, so not a long trip at all. Sausalito is a nice addition to finish the day with a nice cup of coffee.

Such a great tour, Judy was absolutely wonderful and we couldn’t have enjoyed our time more.

Parker was an excellent guide. Despite the rain, he made this excursion a memorable event!
