Julio was the best tour guide. Really made the trip a pleasure and very knowledgeable and personable. With only one day in the city this was the best way to see the sights and learn the history of the neighborhoods. Very glad we included this tour of Muir Woods - absolutely stunning. Caution though - no where on any of the confirmation or ticket does Viator let you know you are taking a tour with a local company with a different name in a common meeting area with other tours. Do not just look for a Viator sign to meet up with your tour. Almost missed it because of this oversight by Viator! Please take note and be more specific on ticket info for your customers! Nevertheless it was outstanding!
My wife and two kids really enjoyed the day with our guide, Jamie. We saw many of the neighborhoods and other photo ops; went over the Golden Gate bridge; Sausalito; and finally Muir Woods.
We loved our tour guide Aaron.
Learned a lot about the history and communities in San Francisco . Highly recommended.
This tour hits all the highlights. Our guide, Julio, was charming and very knowledgeable of the city. The whole process was smooth. I was unsure of the meeting spot but called the number provided and a very sweet rep made sure I knew where to meet our guide. Highly recommend this tour and this company.
Patrick with Dylan’s Tours was great! Very knowledgeable and so fun! He was entertaining to all ages!
The tour was very comprehensive, many things about SF history, fun facts and present state items of interest being expounded on by our very knowledgeable and likable tour guide, Adam.

We had a great tour guide, Adam. He was informative and entertaining. Grea5 schedule, not rushed. We saw places that we wished to explore more on different days that we had not realized were there. Great time.
This was one of the best VIATOR experiences I have had. We saw almost as many San Francisco highlights as I could think of in advance with a very knowledgeable guide. The stroll through the Muir Woods after a relaxing lunch in Saulsalito was topped off a great day!
Great tour of San Francisco. I have never been there before and the tour guide was very informative and fun. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Great way to learn about San Francisco, stopped in a cool location to get lunch, and Muir Woods was breath taking.
Rolando is the best tour guide, being a local he knew everything about the city. Great tour within a small group, well recommended.
This was a fantastic day tour with a small group. We were taken to many places in the city with excellent commentary by our tour guide, Marlin. The trip over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito was beautiful. The Muir Woods experience is a must see and a relaxing way to visit this unique redwood forest. Overall a perfect day!
Great small group tour visiting highlights of the city ; Sausalito and Muir Woods. Andreas was a fantastic host; very friendly and informative. He even dropped us off near our hotel at the end of the tour. Highly recommend this Dylan's tour!
Nice 6 hours van tour of San Francisco, over Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, then Muir redwoods. Small group and excellent guide.
The bus driver was so informative. He knew many facts and he was fun to listen to. We did not have to worry about parking at any of our sops and we could not have do all this on our own.I highly recommend this trip. We did the early one so it was difficult to get to the starting point. We loved the Muir woods. He directed us to where to have lunch in Saucilito and how to spend our time in the woods..
Do this trip.
This was a fantastic tour and Rorlando was a really great guide. Super upbeat friendly personality with really great information to share. He definitely added to the fun of the entire day.

Fantastic views of the oldest/tallest trees on the planet. Once in a lifetime experience. Met our full expectations.
My family and I decided to book this tour for our first day in San Francisco. The tour was informative with many great stops that we certainly wouldn't have known about if we had not taken the tour. Our tour guide Jake was very knowledgable and was open to answer any questions and give plenty of recommendations. Overall it was a wonderful way to spend our first day in San Francisco! Highly recommend!
