Our tour of Marin County with Elizabeth was fantastic! Touring with Elizabeth was like spending a very informative and casual day with an old friend. She is a native of Marin County and knows its history, current environment, and all of its great people. This is a great way to get to know an area close to wine country and San Francisco in a very relaxed way. I highly recommend spending a day with Elizabeth. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with her!
