Yosemite speaks for itself! What an amazing place! We were there in the middle of summer and it was quite hot. I would recommend taking your swimmers bathers for us Aussies The only down side was going on the weekend and much of the time was spent sitting in traffic rather than exploring the park. However once we were out walking and experiencing the place it was fantastic The bus driver/guide made the trip really interesting with his own stories and flexible approach. It was good to be in a small bus rather than a big coach. If you suffer travel sickness, be prepared as the roads are winding for a lot of the trip
This tour was great! We had a fantastic guide called Mitch who was very knowledgeable of the area. Go on this trip it's well worth the money and you get to see all the attractions in the park rather than a glimpse and rush around in a day :
Two days was not enough to take in the beauty of Yosemite but it was all we had and Mitch orhainised our group really well. We didn't feel rushed and we yet we saw a lot. Thanks
Great tour guide, very knowledgeable, and appreciated the fact he knew how to avoid the crowds. Plenty of time to explore the park if you spend the night.
Awesome 2 day trip to Yosemite. The trip didn't feel rushed. There was time for guided hikes and self hike.
Great two-day tour of Yosemite. The tour guide was a very good driver I'm prone to motion sickness and never got sick through those winding roads. The itinerary was well-planned. We never felt rushed, was given just the right amount of time for all the various activities. I like that we did plenty of walking. Didn't want a tour that was: drive, stop, hurry to take photos or whatever the activity was, and then jump back into the van, and repeat. The driver gave us lots of good information about Yosemite, with touches of humor, and welcomed questions. I was lucky that the other passengers were very nice got to learn about their home country.
The tour was really great! Leo was our tour guide, and did an awesome job of guiding and telling us about the history, geography and tales of the whole San Francisco to Yosemite area. Our time in San Francisco was limited, and the overnight tour was perfect for our schedule. I highly recommend this tour - a one-day tour will not do justice the majesty of Yosemite.
Great overview of the main areas of Yosemite, with some light walking. Our guide was most kind and interesting, we had a great time. Would definitely recommend to discover the area.
My friend and I went on this tour last October 2015, and had such a good time! Our tour guide was Mitch, he was such a fun and friendly guide, who also knew so much about Yosemite. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone thinking of going to Yosemite. I loved our walk around the giant sequoias, and Mitch took us on some beautful walks around Yosemite, so we got to see loads of amazing views.
There were only 5 of us in the group, so we got to talk to everyone and got to know everyone well, which made the tour atmosphere a lot more fun!
Just wanted to thank Mitch for a great experience, and would recommend the tour to everyone, and I would definitely do it again!
Very Kind Guide, The Course is very good. I recommend this course.
Our guide, Mitch, was excellent...very knowledgeable about the park and fun to hang out with. Highly recommend this tour!

Totally fabulous from the first minute to the last. All went smoothly and we had a full trip thanks to the very skilled guide Leo.
This was a truly excellent tour with a great guide. The activity level was good but this is a tour where you need to be in reasonably good physical condition, especially for the high altitude portion. Climbs can be steep at times for those not used to this form of activity.
Fantastic trip, our tour guide Chris was amazing, full of info and stories about the area. As we didn't have a car for San Francisco this was a great way to see Yosemite as well as getting to go to places outside of the usual sites in the valley. Accommodation was good, wonderful trip.
A fantstic couple of days enthusiastic guid Mike was ecellent. The vews awe inspiring. Weather hot and sunny. Recommended
A stunning experience. Everything was as described and the tour guide, Marie, was both funny and informative. My family all thought this was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco.
I would give this 10 stars. Tour guide, Chris was very knowledgeable and personable.Hotel pickup and drop off was smooth and on time too! I liked the fact that it was a smaller group. 10 in our group. Nice mix of time on our own to explore vs. guided hikes. It was perfect for single woman and someone unfamiliar with Yosemite and its history. Can't overstate how much fun the tour guide made the trip. He's likes what he is doing and it shows. Not as many sequoias as I thought so I was glad I had visited Big Basin Redwood State Park in the Santa Cruz mountain area prior to arriving in SF.
Hotel accommodations at the Cedar Lodge were not Hilton standards but room was clean and air conditioned. Didn't spend much time at the hotel anyway so it wasn't an issue.
I would highly recommend Incredible Adventures and Chris Clack in particular. I also think the 2 day trip is better than a 1 day trip would have been. I plan on booking again with viator and the local tour company again in the future.
This was a fantastic tour if you only have 2 days to visit Yosemite. We got breath-taking views of the half dome, El Capitan and much more. With hotel pick ups and drop offs, it's as easy as it gets for some unfamiliar with the region. Our guide, Marie was very knowledgeable about the area and its history, and kept us entertained an informed with stories throughout the tour. Yosemite is such an amazing place, and I wish I could have stayed there longer.
This tour was awesome. The guide was great. This trip is only for those who like to hike a bit. If you are in poor health I would take this tour. If you can handle the hiking it is awesome.
Everything was so well planned. Our time was utilized to the fullest. Brian our tour guide could not have been any more prepared an d wonderful. He was great. Loved the park. Hotel was very nice. All around great 2days
This tour was awesome! Yosemite is by far the best national park I've ever visited. We used to drive by ourselves to national parks. But after this tour, we decided that we'll definitely take some other guided tours because that's a perfect way to have a deep understanding of national parks. Our guide of this tour is Chris, who is the best guide we've ever met. He knows a lot of things about the history, the plants and animals, the secret scenic spots of Yosemite. He told us interesting and informative stories about Yosemite. He's such a great story-teller, clear, logical, full of passion and humor. He is also a very good driver, making the trip safe and comfortable. The best thing is that he loves the nature so much and he picked all the garbage he spotted along the hiking trail. My child learned how to protect our mother planet from Chris. This is definitely teaching by doing! We highly recommended this tour. You will get more than the gorgeous and sublime scenery of Yosemite.
The entire group had a wonderful time on our 2-day Yosemite National Park Tour, starting April 25th, 2015. Due to unusual amounts of fresh snow the day before, hiking conditions were difficult, and several roads were closed, including Glacier Point. Our guide, Brian Wunderlich, was expertly able to rearrange our intiniary, postponing Glacier Point until the road reopened. He also put on chains, and brought all of us who felt up to it through the snow, safely scaling Half Dome for a spectaclular closing. Thanks Brian, for being such a genuinely great guy. You made a great big difference, and we really appreciate your extensive knowlege of the area. The freshly melting snow and great locations also made for some stunning photos. What a great trip it was. Make sure to look up Brian for an incredible adventure in Yosemite or the San Francisco area.
The tour was great and Brian was a wonderful guide. He went above and beyond in guiding us in our free time. He made lots of scenic stops, and it was a great trip.
