Thoroughly enjoyed the well organised trip! beautiful scenery..
One of the most beautiful places on this planet. Well worth the long bus ride. Joe, our tour guide was knowledgeable, and presented his knowledge in an easy manner. My daughter and I learned a lot about not only Yosemite Park. The giant Sequoias were impressive.

Tour was great for a busy traveler. Roman, our tour guide was hilarious and extremely knowledgeable about everything Yosemite and Californian. He drives like hes on the autobon but that's ok because he's german. Had a great time. Best part of our San Francisco trip!
This tour is good, Yosemite is stunning and its worth the long hours in the bus. If you get Leo the tour guide, he's the best! We had lots of stops for food and bathroom which was appreciated. We went in August which was really really hot! Wear sunscreen and a hat. Lots to see on this tour, do it!
That's one ticked off the bucket. Great day, very helpful guide, fantastic scenery
Yosemite is a must see! Easily one of the most beautiful places on earth. Well worth the long bus ride.
One day trip is a scratch of the surface. To enjoy and have a good view of the park requires two or more days. Hope we have more time as the park offers free shuttle to various stops which totally worthy the while to visit. A good tour and the driver is great.
We had a wonderful time for the whole day. The bus picked us up from the hotel in the morning. Through the journey, our driver James kept us busy with his great narration which were very informative. On whole I recommend this to any one who has a day to spare.
Yosemite national park itself is a great place to visit. It is so beautiful with nature at its best it cannot be described through words
Long tour but very educational
Sequoia trees were amazing as was Yosemite park and the sights like El Capitan
Andy was our tour guide and he was wonderful!!! It was a great trip and one of the highlights of our vacation. We highly recommend this tour and company!!!
Excellent trip, our tour guide Leo made the road time go by quick. Once in the park he knew his stuff on the parks history and information, and where the best view points were. I'm glad I went - its a magical one of a kind place. Only thing I would have done different was stay the night in the park. Next time I go I would definitely spend a few days there. All in all I would not trade the experience for the money spent.
Our tour guide, Andy, did a fabulous job of keeping us all together while still giving us enough information, photo ops and enough time to just enjoy the park and the trip. He had a very friendly, easy-going personality that made him very approachable. The park itself is magnificent.
Regarding the sequoias, I would recommend a note on the website warning that in order to see the sequoias, you must be able to hike down and back a very steep grade - in potentially high or low temperatures and high altitude. I booked this tour specifically for the sequoias not understanding that this was a requirement and it was a disappointment that we did not get to see those magnificent trees in the way we had hoped to.
On the other hand, we saw many other breathtaking sites. Had I to do it over again, I would have looked into an overnight option in order to be able to take our time at the lodge and enjoy the lovely river wading spot we found.
We highly recommend this tour - definitely consider the overnight option, if you can. If you cannot do the walk to the sequoias and big trees are your thing, Viator has a tour to the Muir Woods to see the sequoia's cousin, the great redwood. :)
