Do you love the outdoors? Yes! Checked! Do you want to be packed with bus loads of tourists and screaming kids in John Muir Woods after you've spent a good part of your day finding a parking spot? No! Checked! If you've read so far, let me invite you to visit this place I called home! The mountains just south of SF, with endless excellent hiking/biking trails, offer sweeping views of the Pacific ocean and intimate encounters with majestic old/second growth redwoods and the many fauna and animals that live there. You practically own the trails all to yourself!! These places are less known to the tourists yet no less scenic, if not more, compare to what's listed on typical guidebooks. Whatever activities you may choose, ranging from black-diamond style mtn biking to cycling along the gorgeous coastline to easy hikes under the serene canopy of redwoods along meandering creeks to visiting hidden wineries/restaurants along the way, let me be your guide to a perfect day! I might even throw in a bottle of wine and cheese along the way! ;)

I came to San Francisco 30 years ago and traveled extensively across the globe but never, for a minute, thought I'd be transplanted anywhere else. An outdoors enthusiast and fun loving person, I practically spent every weekend cycling, hiking, swimming, fishing, camping, skiing within 150 miles radius of San Francisco Bay Area. Yes, often times taking the kids from church too! And, yes, I know all the beautiful spots like the palm of my hand. Full profile

I took two trips with Thomas - a 1/2 day and a full day - to see the redwoods. The 1/2 day was an "introductory" tour to 2nd growth redwoods. The full day was to hike through a forest of old growth redwoods - true giants. My goal in hiring Thomas as a guide was to see big, old redwoods - something I have wanted to do for years. And, I was not finding the tour I wanted: More time with the redwoods, less time shopping (or no time shopping) in a "quaint, Mediterranean-type town." Thomas customized and delivered two great experiences that will be unforgettable for years to come. Our hikes were uncrowded, quiet, insightful and spectacular. We hiked through redwoods that I only could have dreamed about previously. I was thoroughly impressed and having Thomas as company and a guide only enhanced the experiences even more. He's knowledgeable, easy to be with, pleasant, interesting and has a noted passion for these forests that is infectious. I SO enjoyed spending time with him - felt like I was hiking with a good friend. If you are looking for a truly unique experience that cannot be duplicated, please contact Thomas. He will put together an experience that has your needs and wants in mind, and he will deliver. I feel incredibly lucky to have found Thomas and the days he planned for me. This is not something I could have planned on my own. Truly unique experiences that met my goals and left me feeling very fortunate and satisfied. My vacation would not have been nearly as interesting, fun, fulfilling, exciting or memorable without finding Thomas and his day-trip planning. Thank you so much, Thomas.
