This is the most time you can spend at Yosemite on a day trip, so be prepared for a long, busy day. You get three full hours to spend in the park however you wish; I recommend renting a bike or checking out the Ansel Adams Gallery.
Justine was a brilliant tour guide, she gave so much history all the way out to Yosemite, it was really interesting. The drive was long but Justine made it fun with great music and a couple of stops along the way. Would highly recommend this trip.
My family and I had a fantastic time on this tour. Our driver, Brian, was funny, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, gave us some great pointers and even made stops at El Capitan and Tunnel View on the way out of the park. Although it was four hours' drive there and back, the ride was very comfortable and we had a stop along the way in both directions. For anyone wanting to take a trip to Yosemite without having to get there on a huge, lumbering coach, this tour is vey highly recommended by us.
This tour to Yosemite is well worth the time as it is a 4 hour drive out and back. The countryside is beautiful both ways. The views are breath taking and will remain etched in my memory for a lifetime. Our guide was laid back and knowledgeable. We stopped at a farmers market and a place to get a bag lunch on the way out so not to waste time upon arrival. The drive in to Yosemite is breath taking in more ways than one. Not only are the views beautiful and amazing but the ride up and over the mountain is at time harrowing. Not for the faint of heart or someone who is afraid of heights. The road is very steep and winding without guardrails albeit beautiful. I would deifinitely recommend this tour to anyone who would like to get a glimpse of Yosemite.
Was a great way to see Yosemite while in San Francisco. Makes for a long day but well planned stops to, from, helped. Our guide was excellent, with recommendations for picking up sandwiches and picnic type lunches in the park saved lots of time. It is unfortunate that we thought this tour could go to more areas directly but basically shuttles do it all and driver parks. It was too rigorous for the older members of our group to walk to Half Dome but younger ones enjoyed it. We did stop at Tunnelview and El Capitan in our van so that was nice. And time for all the pictures you wanted. Nice facilities in the park but lots of people and private cars were 2 hr delays. It was a weekend. The buses and vans have their own lane and zip by most of the traffic which nice plus.
Great guide, great place, great all. Highly recommended. Worth spending more than one day.

This tour does make for a long day - but it is one of the easiest ways to see as much of Yosemite as you possibly can in a day, without driving yourself. Mike was a very informative, funny and enthusiastic tour guide. He made sure we were all confident in what things we could do during our 3 hours free time and where to meet again for the trip back to SF.
I really enjoyed this tour! I choose it over others because we got 3-4 hours to explore Yosemite Valley as opposed to the one hour other tours provided. While 3 hours was not enough it allowed me to do more exploring. The tour guide Joe was wonderful making the drive there and back enjoyable.

The only downside is that we did not have an opportunity to explore more of the park! Our tour ended much too fast! Our tour guide was wonderful and we definitely will book another excursion through Incredible Adventures.
an amazing trip for one day,saw all of the most important site of the park our time was limited , by doing this tour allowed us more freedom in san francisco ,Viator to me is one of the most trustworthy companies to use when traveling around the world, their guides realy know there stuff, we use them all the time on our travels. i highly recommend this company
Excellent tour, breathtaking views, worth the long journey. Alex was an excellent tour guide. Well done.
