We could not say enough good things about Richard, who was our tour guide. His knowledge of the park and related subjects was phenomenal. The tour route allowed us to see all of the major attractions and even the sandwiches were excellent. Highly recommended.
Our first time to go to Yosemite and it was all worth it . James was a very knowledgeable tour guide, friendly, pleasant, and was so concerned about our safety . We saw all the highlights on such limited time. Will highly recommend this tour. Thanks 🙂
We were picked up at our hotel in Oakhurst by James. We had a delightful day driving through Yosemite and made many stops at most impressive areas and sights. We also stopped for a picnic lunch with sandwiches provided. James was very knowledgeable about sights we saw and also more than happy to take pictures for us. We would definitely recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed this tour. But wanted to confirm, this isn’t a hike or a bus tour. It’s a walking tour/class around the area near Yosemite Valley. Our guide, Michael, was great. He was very knowledgeable and patient and helpful in making sure that everyone’s questions were answered, no matter whether beginning photographer or pro, young or old. He helped build an appreciation of the landscape, and we felt like we learned a lot, whether using phone cameras or digital cameras, and that helped increase our interest in taking pictures, which certainly made the rest of the trip more enjoyable in being able to try and capture better photographs. And because it was a walking tour, he was very flexible in catering the tour to the interests of the different parties. Would recommend him and the tour.
