Our tour guide had a great sense of humor and made the roadtrip very entertaining. We only had 2.5 hours at the park, but the time spent was definitely breathtaking! Next time I will opt for the 2 day tour at least. There are so many beautiful sites to admire.
Michael was a great guide and 1 day was enough for a quick trip to SF.
Warning for travelers..go to the bathroom before you catch your "hotel pick up bus". This bus takes you to the main office where there are NO bathrooms there or on the tour bus. .there is a small food place around the corner. Also bring your own water etc.
The scenery was beyond amazing, we were just disappointed to not get up to the Sequoia trees. Rather than a two hour "on your own time", how about including a box lunch in the price of the tour that could be eaten on the bus in order to get everyone up to those Redwoods? Tour guide was good, and made lots of stops for photo opportunities and genuinely seemed to want to make sure we all had a chance to see and photograph the many gorgeous sights!
The driver was great at giving information and pointing out things along the way. He stopped at a fresh fruit and vegetable stand and at deli so we could pick up lunch. It was wonderful way to have a picinic lunch in the park. I would recommend this trip as a way to get to a national park without having to drive.
This was an amazing day. You can not do Yosemite in a day but if that's all you have then this is the way to go. The driver provided by grey line was a star and made the trip fun.
Yosemite NP is absolutely stunning, a must see. An exrta hour or two there would have been good though, even if it meant getting back to San Fran late at night. If you have time do the overnight trip.
A very good trip with a very entertaining driverhost. Stephen was his name. The only drawback was the traffic coming home ran us an hour over and 15 hrs is an awfull long day for someone on vacation! I don't know how you could make it any better. Cudo's to Stephen for making the trip interesting and as fun as he could!
A very enjoyable visit to Yosemite but unfortunately the Bay Bridge was closed on the morning of our excursion. This added an extra hours travelling in both directions. This extended travel was tiring and the driver had to be relieved before we reached San Francisco because he had exhausted his working hours.
The trip guide was very, very good. However, if I had to do it over again the trip was too long for just three hours in the park. We didn't want to rent a car and go through all that, maybe a package where you get the ride and a room there at Yosemite for a night or two would have been better!
