This trip was amazing! Great stop along the way to pick up some local produce, dried fruits and veggies. I would highly recommend to take this tour with the lunch option. Lunch was at the Ahwahnee Hotel (parts of The Shining filmed here), and we were treated to a 2 course meal which was delish! and plenty of food. After lunch we had 3.5hrs to spend how we wanted in the park. Hire a bike, take the free shuttle or use your legs to walk around which is what I did. I managed to cover 80% of the area on foot in this time, I wish I hired a bike though.
Our driver took us to a few of the 'touristy' spots before dropping us off for lunch to get those amazing photos.
Overall, couldn't recommend this tour more highly. Our driver/guide Manny, was really great. Lots of info. Great day
Adolfo, our bus tour guide was fantastic.
My kids loved the park. My advise would be to eat bring your own lunch and eat it before you get there so you can maximize the time at the park. Make sure you go to the waterfall first and try to move quick. There is one stop to buy snacks.
I had a great time. Our tour guide was great. Manny really was able to tell us alot about the region as well as the National Park. The only negative of the trip as I didn,t know that there was a food court. I didn't purchase the lunch that was available but didn;t know there was an alternative till I arrived. Would have liked to know that ahead of time.
Although this is an extremely long day, it is COMPLETELY worthwhile. Yosemite's natural beauty is SPECTACULAR. The tour was well organised and professional. The day was perfect.
This tour was fantastic - it is a long drive and an early start but worth it for the brilliant views and beautiful scenery.
Good information provided along the way and our driver Manny was an excellent guide.
Also worth taking the lunch option at the Awahnee Lodge. Very, very impressive!
a long day but well worth getting up for. Scenery was stunning and we saw real live bears Gill.Lizzie and Peter
Excellent day trip but Yosemite deserves much more time. We only had around 4 hours there which isn't enough so next time we would take a couple of days. Day trip was great introduction.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely do this tour again if I'm ever back in San Francisco :)
Kimberly and Bobby were amazing tour guides and Yosemite was beautiful!
Our trip to Yosemite was most enjoyable, Gus our guide was fun and very engaging with interesting facts and information about the area we were traveling , Scott our driver was highly professional and a very safe and considerate driver.
Our day trip to Yosemite National Park was amazing, what a beautiful place. Our bus tour was great and the driver really helpful.
Everything went great. The ride was smooth, the tour guide and bus driver (Kimberly and Scott) were very informative and friendly. Yosemite is absolutely perfect. You get around 3 hours of the park to yourself and you stop at three spots with your tour group. The day was perfect. Highly recommend this
Can highly recommend this tour when visiting San Francisco.
Don't be put off by the 2-3 hour drive each way as the Yosemite National Park is a sight to behold. Plenty of free time to do your own thing with a free shuttle bus running through the park every 8 minutes.
Our host Sue was very pleasant and our driver Angel very experienced in driving in busy traffic.
A must do, amazing place to visit.
Thank you Kimberly and Bobby for an enjoyable trip. You both are the gold standard of service.
Breathtaking. Words can't describe Yosemite. Great guide and a very enjoyable day.

A terrific day. Our driver (Wolfgang) was informative and friendly. He was also a very good driver. Yosemite was spectacular. Worth doing.
Thank you Wolfgang! Awesome day, mind blowing location. True guide with passion and interest in ensuring safety and a good experience for all on board. A must do for those with small amounts of time to try and see as much as you can in one day.
We had a great time. Wolfgang made the trip interesting and informative. We got the lunch with our trip and it was well worth it at the Ahwanee Hotel. It was eat all you can brunch. The ambience and staff were superb. Since it was Memorial Day weekend, the park was crowded, but we opted to walk to the various sites instead of riding the tram. It was a nice day. So glad we took this day tour instead of driving ourselves.
Fantastic day made even more wonderful by the fantastic tour guide Kimberly Traylor.
A place not to be missed I recommend for everyone and make sure you ask for Kimberly.
All though this is a long day it's worth ever minute we travelled on Wednesday the 9th April. Our driver Bobby and guide (sorry I forgot your name) were great, they were friendly , professional ,made the whole day very enjoyable. The sites you see are fantastic, going in April the waterfalls still were falling there was snow on the tops , plus the sun was out. We had lunch in the hotel where the queen stayed ,the food was really good. Had we been staying in San Francisco a bit longer we would have opted for the two day trip
This day was great and Helmet the tour guide was so nice, wish we had more time but overall a great day and well worth the money.as wonderful. He knew all the places to go and was so nice.
