I would like to start by saying this tour was awesome. Yosemite is absolutely gorgeous. Spending 2 days there is the way to go. What made this tour standout was our driver/guide Chris. Chris was energetic and super positive. He not only showed us the sights, but he always joined in and offered us many other experiences that we never would have done on our own. Like hiking to the top of the mist trail, swimming in an alpine lake, climbing to the top of a dome, frisbee tossing, and a new thing called slack lining. And wherever he took us, the sights were awesome. This tour is a must see and Chris is a must have guide! Thanks, Chris, for the memories!!

Scratch one more off our bucket list! Trip was event fulfilled and informational packed fun all and a two day trip...well-organized, with great personal service! our driver/guide Mitch stayed with us the whole trip. He didn’t just dump her us off to be our own like past trips we have taken. Would highly recommend!

Perfect weekend trip. Our tour guide Sarah was excellent and made sure we saw all the highlights. We had a very clear day and were able to see for miles. Only downside was not being able to get a room in Yosemite and having the extra travel of leaving park for Cedar Lodge. Overall wonderful trip with a very nice group


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

Amazing tour!!! Our tour guide Leo was fantastic! He took us to key spots in Yosemite with breathtaking views and photo opportunities. He was very knowledgeable, informative and friendly. This tour allows you the benefit of a guide and plenty of time to explore. Only advice is to stay at the Yosemite Lodge. Was not happy with the Cedar Lodge. Bearable for one night

Best ever. Emily our tour leader was awesome-friendly, helpful and an impressive and careful driver. There are some mountainous roads!
Emily made extra stops at our request for spectacular photo opportunities. The small tour bus was excellent. Accomodation at Cedar Lodge although 3star was perfectly fine-we enjoyed the extra scenic drive in the evening. The second day of the tour allows some free time and Emily gave us lots of options of things to do. Great tour.

Superb tour with Mitch who is an excellent driver and guide.About 4 hours drive from San Francisco so an overnight stay is advisable.Good accommodation and food.The restaurant is top class.
Quite a long walk to see giant Sequoias and uphill to return to the bus, but worthwhile.
Smoke haze and little water in the waterfalls were unavoidable but did not spoil the visit.
Not to be missed!

This tour is amazing, it deserves a much better description than the one given.
We had a lovely, knowledgable guide who was also an excellent driver.
We enjoyed 2 full days of walking, taking photos, eating and making friends. The accommodation was perfect and the mini bus was comfy. Thanks!
