Much more than just walking through the woods. Nicki was a great tour guide by showing us how to be mindful in nature. It was an experience to get away from technology and just enjoy nature as it is. The views were breathtaking and the hike was so fun.

Highly recommend this tour to both locals and visitors. The light snacks along the hike are incredibly special and very emblematic of the tour’s topics!

Nick met us perfectly on time at the Equator cafe and drove us to the trail. He was friendly and a great storyteller from the start. NIck shared his unique and broad knowledge of the areas's foraging possibilities as we hiked amid the gorgeous redwoods, bays, and firs of Mt Tamalpais. His wealth of information on the medicinal and other properties of different plants and mushrooms was fascinating as was his interest in shamanism, the chakras and other world energies he shared with us. A truly wonderful experience!

Such an excellent experience! Our guide, Shoshana, was incredibly knowledgeable and took us on such a scenic hiking route. Would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to get out of the city for a few hours!

100% do this! It was an incredible experience! We have no experience hiking beyond general fitness through Orange Theory and Pure Barre. It was challenging but doable, and our guide, Nick, was a true expert in the forest!
