45 mins at Muir Woods is short. Would recommend an hour at least.

I opted for Muir Woods with Bay Cruise but wasn't told from where was the Bay Cruise eligible from. I was taken to Muir Woods and then Sausalito and then I took the usual ferry back from Sausalito to San Francisco. I paid $91 for this tour. I see the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour on your website is $62 so the only additional thing I got a was a ferry ticket which costs $12.50. Which means I paid $16.50 extra. I am not satisfied that I overpaid for the same experience.

Never got to take the tour because of the disorganization.
Reply From Gray Line:

We want to apologize for this cancellation, as a washout of the road at Muir Woods has caused the vehicle access to change drastically there. Our team in SF has been notified of your cancellation and refund request and will be getting this to you as soon as possible.

Travel across the Golden Gate Bridge and through the rugged coastal mountains of Marin County. Experience magnificent views of the San Francisco Bay and valleys, where the Coastal Miwok once lived. Our first stop is Muir Woods National Monument, where ancient groves of Giant Redwoods (Sequoia Sempervirens) tower over Redwood Creek. Our 1¼-hour stop is the most time offered of any other tour company. Muir Woods entrance fee included.

Next, embark on a 60-minute Bay Cruise past the famous Pier 39 sea lions and along San Francisco’s historic waterfront, revealing the city’s fascinating skyline. After you sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll circle Alcatraz Island and see every angle of this mysterious island. Other attractions include Angel Island, the Ellis Island of the West, and the magnificent skyline of San Francisco. This comfortable Bay tour has both indoor and outdoor seating with full narration describing major landmarks as you sail by them. Harbor porpoises have returned to the Bay!
