"This experience was given to my wife and I as a birthday gift. It took a while for us to arrange the scheduling, but once scheduled it went off exactly as planned. It was a great way to see the Presidio in San Francisco and get to know some pieces of Andy Goldsworthy's art. Although we have spent a moderate amount of time in San Francisco and more in the Bay Area, this was truly a unique experience and one that is highly recommended."
