Fantastic trip to Yosemite! Ontime pickup at our hotel, excellent guide (Tom) who explained the itinerary and told great stories, stopped for fresh fruits and goodies, made plenty of potty stops, bought breakfast one day and lunch(!) the second, and drove well and safely on some very scary hairpin roads. Great high country tour, Tom knew where and when to avoid crowds, great photo-ops and very accomodating to the the "senior" passengers (us) who could not tackle the rock climbing. Cedar Lodge was just fine, large clean rooms, great bar and grill. My only negative comment concerns the springs (or lack thereof) on the van - we sat right over the wheels (someone had to) and felt every bump. But all in all it was a wonderful trip that we would not have missed. I definitely will book with Viator again - it was worth every cent. Also met a wonderful group of bus-buddies from all over the world. Thank you, Viator!

This was a great way to see the park and avoid the parking/driving congestion. It was a good balance of free time to explore and guided activity.

Well organised, extremely knowledgable guide. Great scenery but the sheer numbers of people there each day make the possibilities of any wildlife viewing very limited when roads are closed due to weather conditions.

Well, for the Yosemite Tour, we were very fortunate to have our guide throughout. He was simply fantastic! He showed and recommended beautiful views. If not for his enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge, we believe we would not have truly appreciated the inner beauty of the Park. To sum it up, we had a very memorable trip to Yosemite Park.

This is a perfect way to see the best of Yosemite if time is limited. In a 4 hour trip from S.F. sit back, enjoy the scenery , get to know your fellow passengers--3 Aussies, 2 Brits, 1 Spaniard, 1 Scot, and 3 Yanks. A very warm and comfortable hotel awaited with great bar food. Good commentary along the way from our superb driver who negotiated the twists and turns with aplomb and remained friendly and happy throughout. Well worth the money!!!

This was an amazing experience. The tour itself is excellent and is worth every cent. The vehicle used was beautiful. Hotel pick up was on time. I would strongly recommend this tour to all. The overnight Hotel was fine. The only issue I had was the tour leader. He just lacked personality and the entire group felt the same. His advise was not good especially when it came to some of the walks. One guy suffered a painful injury as the tour leader failed to explain just how difficult and long the hike would be. Your given plenty of time though on this tour to explore at your own will. Having done this tour I do not know how people could appreciate the beauty of the Park by just going on a 1 day tour. Again I say this is a great tour and well worth the money. Although I have made some negative comments about the tour leader don't get me wrong as overall he was good. You just need to make sure you probe and ask a lot of questions and then i am sure you would get the correct advise as mentioned he was not clear in the first instance is all. But when asked he was always correct.
