Excellent, friendly guide, who told us a lot of interesting stories on the way to the park. Some stops were quite too short / just enough time to make some selfies... We would like to have more time to enjoy Yosemite Valley. Definitely worth the trouble, but keep in mind it's a long way from/to San Francisco.
Our tour guide, Frank, was wonderful. He made sure everybody had pictures taken with the beautiful sceneries behind them.
Great tour fantastic scenery
Guide Garett was very informative and helpful
It was a long drive, but the time went by quickly as the tour guide was talking telling us about the trip and other interesting facts. The scenery was amazing, well worth the time on the bus
Anthony was the best tour guide! He was lively, fun, and full of interesting facts as he did everything he could to ensure that we had a great time! I'm recommending this tour to my friends!
Yosemite is an awesome place to visit. Our bus driver and tour guide was the absolute best. He made the day even more special.
I was extremly lucky to have Anthony from the UK as a guide. I've read about him before so when I found out he would be our guide I knew the trip would be a blast and indeed it was. It was a well organised day, pick up on time and we didn't miss a thing. Anthony went out of his way to make sure we had the best day. The information he gave was very good, well prepared and I loved the way he synced the music to our travel locations. Anthony - cheers for this. The trip was brilliant! I hope to see you again.
Excellent day tour! Our guide was great- very informative, good personality and showed us a lot in a short amount of time.
Great tour and driver was great. Would have liked to spend a little more time looking around
I am so glad we decided last minute to book this day trip to Yosemite from San Francisco. There is not enough time or space here to describe the beauty that Yosemite beholds! Driver was informative, interesting, and made sure we stayed on schedule and took the time to make sure we had the best photo ops available. If you are in San Francisco, I recommend you book this trip now!
Our guide, Lars, made this into a fun and informative tour. The tour is great to get acquainted with some of the highlights of Yosemite National Park and the surrounding areas. It even included a few suprise stops along the way. Here is a tip: get lunch before entering the park and bring swimming gear on a hot day to get the most out of the main stop in Yosemite National Park. Would highly recommend this tour. The only downside is that 1 day is really too short for Yosemite. Will book the 2 day tour or a multiple night stay in the park next time.
Our guide Andy was well informed, A good bus driver, friendly and a good leader. He obviously is passionate about Yosemite and educating people. Thoroughly enjoyed my time! The drive didn't seem long at all since the bus was comfortable, the driver excellently skilled and information interesting. Yosemite valley is so beautiful and the river absolutely amazing. You must go! Aloha from Hawaii!
Be prepared for a long day, but it was worth it. The Sequoias were amazing! It was definitely a hike back up. The guide said 20 minutes down and 40 minutes up. We walked down quickly knowing it was going to be harder coming up. We aren't in bad shape and had to rest three times coming up to catch our breath, it was in the 80's that day. Take water or chew gum! The guide was Anthony and he was awesome, he even made a couple of extra stops because we were making good time. The road going up the mountain was very scary for me and my friend, so we tried not to look. We knew we had to come down the same way, so we are very thankful the park had somewhere we could buy a couple of beers and that Anthony made a special stop at the local bar to get a couple more drinks. It definitely helped with the trip down for us. Thanks Anthony we owe you one!!!
A long day-trip, but we knew that before we booked. Our guide an Englishman as it turned out! was very knowledgeable and helpful, which makes a great difference to any tour. Scenery was great, but we wish there had been more time for the Sequoias stop - we really had to hurry to get back to the coach on time.
We had a great time! Our tour guide Ross was fantastic!!! He was friendly and very informative. I would highly recommend the experience to anyone.
This trip was fantastic - it was a long long journey however it was soooo worth it! The views are amazing - truly the most beautiful place in the world - It was breath-taking - Our driver was Ross who was awesome and his enthusiasm for the location was infectious and he really went out of his way to make the trip special - worth every penny and more.
Vlad was awesome! He really made it a great day for us. The park is amazing and definitely worth the trip. Just a beautiful place to see in person.
Wonderful tour with Anthony as our driver. He was fun, entertaining and knowledgeable. He kept the group on time and helped us see as much of Yosemite as possible. Breathtaking views and well worth the time!
Great trip. The guide was very interesting and informative. Beautiful scenery. Kind of physically challenging.
Grand in every way. Pleasant,safe, accommodating and enjoyable driver.Great sense of humor. Enjoyed the recorded info and music. Add 30 minutes at the largest Sequoias I had to turn back five minutes from them. That was the whole reason for going. Sad and costly for me. No tour for me had I known.
