Long day, but the trip was well worth it. Once outside of SF and across the Bay Bridge we were greeted with plenty of things to see along the way. The fields of windmills, to the farms and wineries. The stop half way there to buy snacks was great. Allowed us to buy a picnic lunch and drinks for our stops in Yosemite. The giant redwoods and waterfalls were amazing.
Thank you Ben! I had a great time on this trip, I'm so glad I decided to do it. Our tour guide/driver Ben was fantastic and I learned a ton about Yosemite and California and also felt safe with him behind the wheel... a few of the roads are a little intense but he drove them like a pro. I even had the pleasure of going on the 125th anniversary of Yosemite becoming a national park, something I never would have known had it not been for Ben. All in all, one excellent adventure. Yosemite will stay with you for awhile to come.
It was an amazing tour! The hotel pick-up was punctual and our driver/tour guide, Roman, was great! He had a great sense of humor and had a vast knowledge of San Francisco/Yosemite. I would encourage anyone to take this tour. Happy Travels!
It was a long trip but worth it. Our driver romain was funny and had good information about the area. We enjoyed it
I joined the tour of Yosemite on the 30th of March 2015. This tour is really extraordinary and Yosemite is so beautiful and it is a must for visitors in San Francisco!! A great tour cannot be done without a good guide!! Ben is a really FANTASTIC guide and I had a wonderful time in this Yosemite tour thanks to him! He knows very well this area and his comments starts right immediately inside San Francisco! I learned so much about the history, economics and agriculture of California from his narration! Believe me, I participated to many tours and Ben is exceptionally professional and funny and knows exactly what we need and what we want to do at the right time and we didn't even need to ask! He took great care of us in many details, got enough water, good food, great burgers and sushi boxes in half way! I can fell his passion on this work. He is a very good driver too!!! When he drives to climb up the mountain, we were so amazed and the bus was zigzagging right beside the cliff!! That was the only time that people was focused on the driver/guide!! Ben tried his best to take us to the photo spots as many as possible (which is not even described on the website of this tour!). We got so many so many good surprises and I shot many super photos! The best part is that Ben lent his binocular to me to see two hikers who were right on top of the nose of El Captan!!! I was so happy since I was one of the few people who saw them successfully and that was my first time to see hikers like that! In all, Ben makes this already unique tour experience even more unique, which becomes an unforgettable extraordinary experience in my life! I definitely recommend this tour to everybody who visits San Francisco, which will make your journey fantastic!! P.S my suggestion: get enough water and snacks/food at the first stop and we needed pretty much water when doing the giant sequoias!
It was an amazing experience. The driver/guide I believe his name was Andy made the long trip as enjoyable as he possibly could. He was very nice and considered.
We had a great time on this tour. The driver was amazing and showed us all the great spots of Yosemite. I highly recommend this tour to anyone thinking of going to Yosemite National Park and Giant Sequoias Trees.
Driver was the great guide as well as driver, helping people by taking pictures.
Fantastic trip, great guide thanks, Lars!!, excellent all round
Worth going !!!! But would recommend staying overnight at the lodge.
For a first timer to Yosemite just do not think any option apart from this. Comfortable coach which makes the journey tireless and gives up u enough sleep to the driver ( actually a nice gentleman) Antony and moreover the timing and comfort with which the place is covered is awesome.
Lars was a wonderful tour guide and transport was super comfortable! Apart from being a bit tight on time at the Giant Sequoias, everything else was perfect. We walked right next to the base of the waterfall. It was so surreal and beautiful. Highly highly recommended!
A must see place if youre visiting San Fran. Ben the tour guide was a friendly and knowledgable companion to have with us. Its a long day but really worth it. You get 2 hours in the park to do your own thing but Ben stopped at plenty of places for photos along the way. Id definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
This tour was great. The tour guide Ben was interesting and seemed to really love the park. The Great Sequoias were amazing. The park is stunning and well worth the bus journey to get there. I would definitely do this tour again, although maybe in the summer it would be different as we went on 30th November so the park was quite quiet.
The tour was amazing! Yosemite national park was beautiful and it was well worth the drive. Some of the views were breathtaking. The Giant Sequoias were so big! Biggest trees I've ever seen. Overall, highly recommend this trip!
The best thing to do if you'r visiting SFO,
the tour guide was very helpful, and the place is AMAZING.
Tour guide Lars was extremely knowledgeable with an excellent delivery of facts, figures and some anecdotes and irony. He was also a very capable driver. The trip is well paced and offers a variety of activities to a cross section of ages and abilities. Yosemite phased, dazed and amazed me.
The tour was great. The driver/guide certainly knew his directions and the places of interest. As the day was rainy and roads were wet, he took extra precaution in driving to ensure we will all be safe. I highly recommend this tour and guide.
