The weather was awful. Lots of snow and rain but we still had a great time at Yosemite with those breathtaking views.

Expensive Bus Ride
Anthony
, 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.

Yosemite Day Tour

Yosemite Day Tour is a 14 hour trip, which included 6 hours of site seeing and 8 hours of round trip travel. We further have a 3 hours break on the valley, where we could board the free shuttle buses on the valley and visit various pit stops and explore the Trailheads.

The drive back and forth was very smooth. The park was amazing but I wish we had a little more time to explore the vastness of Yosemite Park

If you are short of time, this full day tour to Yosemite National Park is the best option. The guideline were really usefull. I recomend to brind your lunch so intead of using your time eating, you could continous walking in the park.

This was a great experience, our guide Antonio took good care of us and listened to any concerns we might have. I learned a lot from his commentary, he's very knowledgeable. I'd recommend this trip to anyone who really only has 1 day to visit the park.

Magnificent views, the perfect guide!

The tour was very well and timely organized. The guide, Thomas, who also was the driver was very kind, funny and wise. The combination of his knowledge, as well as the love for nature, the country and people in general - was as impressive and pleasant as it gets! One thing I regret is that I didn't have any money on me to tip him (it appears that it's common to do so, and he sure well deserved it). Highly recommended!
