Pick up in the morning was efficient and we were soon on our way. Commentary from guide was interesting and relevant on the journey. Snow started as we entered the park but we were not deterred. Stops in the snow were fun (and wet) and the 2 hour break at the Lodge was appreciated. On the was back we were lucky to have a break in the weather so we were able to see El Capitan and the Bridal falls. A long day but very enjoyable.
great day out, tour guide/driver very informative and very entertaining. Would definitely recommend this trip as Yosemite should not be missed. Loved it
Definitely worth seeing. The scenery is outstanding and the guide was very knowlegeable and looked after the party very well.
We had the best time ever! It is a beautiful place and we visited when the waterfalls were in full flow! It was amazing... the grandeur of the peaks and waterfalls is unimaginable.... Our guide Steve was a great guy and we had an amazing time with him. He was extremely knowledgeable and witty and very funny... It was a long trip of 14 hours but because of Steve, our tour dint seem strenuous at all... Thanks a lot for the great time!

My fiance and I went on the tour. Very Professional and Knowledgeable Driver. He knew a lot about each little city we drove through on our way back to Yose. We had 3 hrs on our own. We rented bikes and toured the park. The driver stopped at multiple places where we ould not get to on bike. Food Wise We stopped at a local farm market in the Central Valley. Awesome Cookies. Then for dinner we stopped at a shopping center we could choose from 3-4 different places. Vehicle was a Dodge Sprinter. Comfortable for up in Mtns. Stephen was out driver and he was great.

What a day, 14 fantastic hours, DG did the best job for us including ensuring we ate well and saw the best of the sights. He went out of his way to make sure we all did the valley tour. Thanks DG.

This was well worth the money! The bus ride to Yosemite alone is worth the trip. We passed through small American country towns, stopped for coffee and snacks along the way and got to see some countryside that is just as beautiful as Yosemite itself. Our tour guide had plenty of stories and fun facts to tell us along the way and the personalized tour through Yosemite was priceless. This tour is a must for anyone travelling to California!

Bus was very dusty - did not look like it was cleaned in a long time - I could write my name in the dust. Also the bus was struggling on the mountains - it might need a tune up. We got there at 6 because it said the bus leaves at 6:30am and need to be there 12 hr before. We found out at 6:30am it really was not leaving until 7:00am. We had a 20 minute late start because some people were not there. They said they were supposed to have gotten picked up but the bus never picked them up.

What an amazing day trip! Although the trip is long 4 hours one way, the reward at the end of the journey is well worth it. Yosemite is an amazing place! Unless you have the time to stay overnight, this day trip gives you a great taster into the National Park. It is very hard to leave but you are guaranteed to want to go back. Because we made some time on the trip up, we ended up having 3 full hours of free time at Yosemite which was great. We also had a one hour tour of the park with the driver who took us to Bridal veil falls and tunnel view lookout which was great because then on top of that we had 3 hours to do what we liked. The park shuttle bus helps to conveniently transport you through the park, so getting around whilst you are there is very easy. Granted we had the picture perfect day weather wise so it was an absolute dream experience, I am sure Yosemite has something to offer no matter what the weather may bring.

Great park, very nice, if you get a chance go in spring then you will see all the waterfalls in their full glory. Be aware the trip from San Fran to Yosemite is a long one.

The only complaint we had with this tour was the bus was a small one for such a long journey and you couldn't see out of the windscreen as it was described as a dog nose bus. Apart from that and it being a dry year and no waterfalls, we thought the rest of the tour was great and so was the tour guide

Just a few disappointments - we understood that we would see redwood trees and that was not the case and it needs better places to eat during the trip.

If you do no other trip whilst in San Francisco you should not miss this amazing valley. It is truly the eighth wonder of the world.
This was a very nice tour, but you don't get to see the Sequoias as that area is closed until the summer of 2017. We wouldn't have booked the trip had we known that ahead of time. Still, Yosemite is very beautiful and the driver did a nice job of stopping for photo ops.
This was a great trip. Don and #39;t worry about the long drive to the park, it was no where near as gruelling as I feared, full of great scenery and with a well timed rest stop half way.
Yosemite itself is utterly incredible. if only we had chosen to stay the night. 4 hours wasn and #39;t long enough!
Didn't like having to change buses once being picked up from the hotel. Waste of time. Would rather just have everyone meet at the office next time - or send the same bus for the tour to pick everyone up.
This was the time during the winter which all the inland fellow californians would like to visit to see some snow.
I had a thorough experience in getting what i wanted to see a snow capped mountains.
viator provided the bridge of suggestions and the possibility to have all the sightseeings completed rather than opting one place at a time.
Loved the trip! Everything went smoothly and spectacular views. Wish we had more time though. I found we were not given enough time to explore the area especially since it is so big! and especially if you have the lunch voucher. A lovely buffet was on offer that day and sadly I felt rushed since we had limited time.
The bus drive to Yoshemite was great, the driver was very knowledge and pleasant.
Loved the tour...the only negative that I would lie to share was the driver that conducted the tour drove somewhat recklessly thru the mountains, he would go over the speed limit on the curves...on the return back to SF my husband even had to say something as we were very scared, he seemed annoyed and didn't slow down much even after that.
