This tour was perfect... we originally intended to spend 4 days in SF (Thurs-Sun) and the Yosmite tour on Sat. Due to flight delays we wound up with 2.5 days. Even with it being our first trek to SF and so much to see in the city I wouldn't have missed the opportunity to see Yosemite for anything. The tour was fun, and most of all it hardly seemed to impact our time available to explore SF. You leave early, sure, but you get back to the city around 8:30PM (in time to see the sunset) and you see so much it is hardly a day wasted, if anything you are more energetic and excited to see SF when you return from Yosemite. If car rides drain you then yes, a 4 hour drive out and back will not be your cup of tea. But if you can grab some Zzz's on the bus then you are more than rested when you arrive at Yosemite and when you get back. Tour guide was awesome (Nick) and my friends and I will not soon forget the trip.
We had a great time on our Yosemite Park tour. The tour guide Andy was great. He had a great attitude and lot's of knowledge about the park. We had a great time I just wish we had more time to spend at the park.
This tour was a great way to take one day and see Yosemite. Andy, our tour guide was knowledgeable, and presented his knowledge in an easy manner. We learned a lot about not only Yosemite, but also about central Calif. agriculture. The giant Sequoias were impressive, but for the time and energy to see a few, we would have rather had a little more time in the Yosemite valley (keep in mind, we had seen giant
Sequoias before). The food stop was great and allowed for the maximum time for site seeing. The itinerary should have called it a stop for food to eat on the way, or a "quick" stop for fast food, or again, food to eat on the way home). It was a huge "plus" being picked up at the hotel. If you have limited time and want to see Yosemite National Park this is an excellent way to do that.
This tour was excellent. Our tour guide was really good and very knowledgeable. He gave us plenty of information along the way. It was definitely worth the price we paid. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to visit Yosemite National Park.
Strongly recommend so many nice views and very memorable adventure.
Joe B was our guide. Very informative good personality n great choices of music for the ride up n back. Really need a couple days, an a good pair of walking shoes! Would recommend company n guide.
It was a great day. The pickup was on time. The driver Andy was very informative and was a nice guy. He took us to see some great scenery. It was a long day (which we were aware of) but was well worth it.
It was a wonderful trip. The tour guide Joe B was so knowledgeable that he made our trip very enjoyable and easy.
Very early departure (5am) but it was worth it, enough time to walk around and appreciate Yosemite as advertised. Really appreciated the organizer for calling me directly when my hotel alarm didn't go off as expected - made it for the trip at an alternate hotel pickup. Andy is an awesome guide, very experienced and able to manage the logistics of the journey nicely with a great sense of humour. Fully recommend this trip, just remember to bring a backup alarm clock in case one didn't go off. :)
The bus driver was very pleasant. He knew his history about National Parks, the local area the Tolumne Seqouias and Yosemite. He was very informative during the entire trip. The scenery is amazing! I have always wanted to see Yosemite since I purchased an Ansel Adams print of "Moon over Half-Dome." Now, I have my own photos of Half-Dome! Definitely worth the price of the ticket from San Francisco to Yosemite.
Andy the tour guide was great! He made sure to showus as much as possible in the limited time that we had. The park and the views stunning! Highly recommended as a teaser to visit more parks in the US. Paulina and Rob, London team
