Expensive Bus Ride
Yosemite National Park - Full Day Tour from San Francisco | mar 2020
Very disappointed in the ‘tour’. Very hard to call the experience we had a ‘tour’. I would call it a very expensive bus fare.
Firstly, the bus wifi wasn’t working - which is disappointing given that wifi is advertised, however I could forgive that. However, during the ride to and from Yosemite I was very disappointed. The tour guide explained nothing about the local area and seemed to have very very limited knowledge of Yosemite National Park.
We were forced to stop for 40minutes to the park and 40minutes from the park in a highway pit stop used predominantly for trucks - I could understand stopping for a rest or to get some food, however the tour group weren’t really interested in eating at either stop and the bus driver just ended up doing his grocery shopping...
We were also shown 2 movies (1 prior to entering the park and 1 post leaving the park). We were told these would give us some good information on the park and things to do in our free time - the movies appeared to be made in the early 90’s and didn’t even work... we ended up watching a very jumpy and uninformative series of pictures with distorted audio - this doesn’t really make up for the lack of ‘guide’.
Fair to say the only decent thing about this trip was arriving at Yosemite with an extra 15minutes than usual due to ‘good traffic’...
Another positive was that we were able to stop briefly at 3 seperate sites within the park for a quick photo.
In all honesty, I’m very disappointed about the overall experience and regret taking this tour - it would have been cheaper and more productive to hire a car, drive myself and read the Yosemite National Park Wikipedia page.Leia mais
