    Our tour guide/driver was Kimmy and she was awesome! Energetic, funny, and helpful, especially with taking pictures. She actually gave us a lot more information than the people at the wineries. One problem: the air conditioning on the bus didn't work well, so we were all sweating on the ride back to SF. The winery in Napa was ehh, but the 2 in Sonoma were good. Would've liked to spend an extra 15 minutes in Muir woods though.

    We had a great time exploring Muir Woods. The drive up was a but unnerving, as I get really bad motion sickness and did not realize the roads were extremely winding. I wish this tour had been guided but it was nice being able to take our time and go at our own pace. When we got there and presented our tickets we were told the park was free that day, so maybe could have saved a little money but no big deal. Our driver was great and friendly.
