Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the 2-Day Yosemite National Park Tour from San Francisco. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Amazing place... wear hiking shoes and take proper clothing to really enjoy what this park has to offer. The scenery is breathtaking... you won't be disappointed! Would recommend you stay at least one night as it takes about 3 hours from San Fran to Yosemite. When I go back will stay for a week and go out overnight on some of the hikes.. a truly spectacular place to spend time.....
Was great 2 go with "Incredible adventurs", and the guide Thom 2 a 2 day in Yosemite through Viator. Van with 13 pasangers, more personal then Grey line buses i went as well (3 tours: Carmel/Monterey, Muir wood/Soselito and The Sonoma/Napa valies). Also the guide is better. If i knew before i would all the tours with Incredible Adventures. Thom enabeled each of the traveler 2 do activity suited his/hers capabilities.
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.
Absolutely outstanding. The guide knew his stuff and put in far more than required. We didn't have dinner until 9pm because he took us to see much more than we had planned, which was brilliant. On the second day, didn't get back to SF until about 10pm for the same reason. The accommodation was wonderful as well - very comfortable. There were things to choose from and the guide included us decisions on things to do - there were 7 in total and we were able to help tailor the trip to all of our needs and wants. Highly recommend this trip.
The trip was great. The guide was very friendly and really knew what they were talking about. I had a great time.
Simply stunning. Yosemite is a must see, and this is definitely the right tour to go on. Lots of fun, informative and extremely accommodating. In such a short time, it covers all the major sights in the park. I've done loads of tours, this was the best by a long shot. Do it, do it, do it!
This trip was fantastic and excellent value. The pick up from the hotel was on time and everything operated really efficiently. Our guide was excellent and lots of fun. The hotel we stayed at in the park was more than adequate and we were blessed with good weather for spring and a nice group. I definitely would like to return and do a camping trip to get a different type of experience.
Very small group, absolutely great for people who usually prefer individual trips, flexible time schedule, very nice tour guide.
Super guide. Very comfortable hotel and a very extensive trip round the park.
Our guide was patient with our abilities. He gave us plenty of time to stop and rest as we climbed the trail the first day. There was time to do our own thing on the second day. The sights were beautiful and we truly enjoyed the other family that was with us. It was great! The only thing that I would suggest is that there be a first aid kit available as I took a fall on the trail and there was no kit available.

Firstly, I'd like to say that Viator is a trusted site. I only chanced upon your site through the internet search. Your responsiveness to my queries is commendable! Secondly, both the tour companies were simply great!
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.
OUR guests enjoyed the tour.
They've appreciated Brian ' s expertise.
Tremendo...divino...divertido...bello...admirable..i feel gratitude ...lot of gratitude
Would highly recommend this tour
The tour guide Brian was great, his knowledge was spot on and he was very interesting
It was also nice to be part of a small group as I was travelling alone you felt more as part of a group instead of being lost on the crowd
Has a fantastic experience that I will never forget !!!
Bryan gave an excellent tour very interesting pleasant and safe driving. Waterfalls stunning as lots of snow melt. We loved the experience but thought meal at cedar lodge very average. Highly recommend to take the 2 day tour to see as much as possible
Really great tour. I highly recommend it if you only have 2 days (like I did) but I would recommend doing a longer trip as there's so much to see. It was more of a taster tour - it's made me really want to go back to explore the rest of the park.
Our guide (Sonia) was great too :)
Just one word,Amazing, we had a great time, the guide was very knowledgable and tailored the hikes to suit everyone in the group. We didnt get our first choice of accomodation but Cedar lodge was a very comfortable second choice.
Since returning home I have already recommended this trip and Viator to my friends and colleagues.
This was a fantastic tour and our guide Eric from Incredible adventure was a perfect guide, knowledgeable, informal and very friendly.Yosemite was beautiful we are so glad we did the two day tour with a visit to Mariposa Grove it was gorgeous
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.
