Victor is patient and very friendly. I went on a beautiful 10 mile journey of Mt. Tam with Victor. The experience felt like a dream with miles of lush trees and cool air in Mill Valley. I highly recommend the hiking and running tour with Victor.

We could not have asked for a better guide to take us on an 18 mile loop around the trails surrounding Mt. Tam. Victor was very attentive to our goals for the day and made them happen, so seemingly easily. The time we spent together was educational and fun, and gave the us the workout and and views we were seeking. Victor is really easy to chat and connect with, and is such a well-rounded athlete, musician, entrepreneur, and genuinely good person. My experience with him definitely opened me up to the possibility of doing something similar along our travels. Victor has set the bar very high for future tours.

Hiking up to Mt. Tam and running down in the nature with Victor was my best Airbnb experience so far. The weather was blissfully good and the view from the top was just breathtaking. Victor took me to the paths that I wouldn't have found out on my own and gave me tons of tips about trail running and running in general. Thanks so much, Victor!

More tips

All range of running abilities are welcome and encouraged! Although any athletic skill level can also enjoy this trek, .5 miles of this climb is very rugged. To reach the East Peak, the final 400 meters can either be a scramble, or you can run an extra .5 mile along the pedestrian trail to the top. This journey will include a bit of hiking/power hiking depending on your fitness and strength.
