Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is the most time you can spend at Yosemite on a day trip, so be prepared for a long, busy day. You get three full hours to spend in the park however you wish; I recommend renting a bike or checking out the Ansel Adams Gallery.

What You Can Expect
The trip offered enough time to explore the valley on your own for a few hours. The tour also stopped at a couple of different spots to give us opportunity to take amazing photos. Our tour guide Mike was great. He was very knowledgeable and helpful at giving suggestions. If time is limited and you only have one day, this tour is a great option. Great job Mike!
My wife and I had the best time at Yosemite park, very friendly guide, knowledgeable and well organized.
This tour was a great and activity packed one. Enjoyed every moment of it. Our guide Brian was very knowledgable and resourceful. Need more than one 4hrs to completely stroll around the place, but still had a wonderful time.
Our tour guide was Calder.
Let me tell you, our trip was awesome!
Calder was a fantastic guide, funny, very friendly and generally a nice guy to have around.
Not only could he tell a lot of stories and history of the Yosemite park, he even shared a lot of interesting little history/flora/fauna facts and stories throughout the 4 hour drive to Yosemite.
I would very much recommend taking this tour with him!
Great day in Yosemite. The guide was really helpful and knowledgeable.
Our Guide, Kris or Chris, not sure was great and informative. The stop at Denise's market was great...produce was so fresh. Yosemite was beautiful even on a less than perfect day! I would recommend this tour! Thanks.
