5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

I did the Yosemite overnight stay and I could not recommend this more. Yosemite itself is incredible, and my time there was great. However, I'll talk about the tour and not the amazing park of Yosemite. Both Mike and Vinncent our tour guides were perfect drivers. Since we stayed overnight they were very well organized in picking us up and dropping us off in Yosemite and the hotel. Informative and nice people. Could not recommend this tour more for anyone in the San Francisco area looking for a overnight stay in Yosemite!

What we did is they drove his from hotel to San Francisco. Stooped halfway for lunch. Then when we got to Yosemite around 11. They take you to tunnel view. If your doing the overnight tour. Then they will check you into your hotel and you are free to explore the park on your own till 3:30 the next day. Note you ride back with a different tour guide and group since the single day tours leave at 3:30 Then they took us home with a dinner break halfway. Greatly enjoyed it!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2017

I was very disappointed with this tour. They left me at the hotel and the day after, picked me up. There was no Winter tour, nothing.
I had to plan my day and a half by myself, nobody helped me. It is very expensive and there is no tour at all. If you are planning on going I highly recommend to take your car or just find a way to get there. Make your hotel reservation on your own. The rest, anyway is going to be by yourself.
