Yosemite was one of the many highlights of our trip. Booking thru Viator was definitely the right way to see this natural wonder. Our guide Ross was amazing. He was an awesome navigator all the way there and back teaching us the rich history of the state. We got to relax and enjoy the breath taking scenery. We stopped for breakfast and lunch. Once in a lifetime trip for us!!!
Although this tour was far, it was all worth it. I haven't seen trees this huge!!! They were jaw dropping. I am glad I went to see this amazing creation. Mother Nature at its best!!
A great day, tour guide was really knowledgeable and had a wonderful day planned with the day set out with some free time for us to enjoy Yosemite on our own.

Excellent trip. Very early start but worth it. Beautiful scenery. Walk to Sequoias trees is down a steep walkway, but not as strenuous as guide suggested. We walked down at speed, saw first tree, took photo and walked back up at speed. The walk back up was difficult at times due to the steepness of the walkway. We walked for 20 mins down, took 25 mins walk back up at speed, had 15mins to spare back at bus. Wished we'd stayed longer at the bottom with the trees, but guide stressed if not back at bus, he would not wait!! So couldn't chance it. Rest of day was very relaxed, other walks were up to you how strenuous you wanted.
Very knowledgeable driver/guide which helped as we did not know anything about Yosemite and the drive to and from the park. The journey was long but expected.
Vlad was an excellent driver and guide he was very informative on the drive to Yosemite, especially the history of Yosemite and agriculture in the Bay Area. He gave us ample time at each stop and was very considerate of our wants and needs for the entire day. I highly recommend this trip. It is an excellent way to see as much of Yosemite as possible with limited time.
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!
Great tour fantastic scenery
Guide Garett was very informative and helpful
Our tour guide, Frank, was wonderful. He made sure everybody had pictures taken with the beautiful sceneries behind them.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 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!!!
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.
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.
