The trip was fabulous. Our tour guide and driver Alex was nice in making the trip full of important spots during such short time in Yosemite. We were so lucky to have such beautiful weather that day in California's rain season, and so many astonishing photos were taken there. Because the late of Yosemite shuttle bus The shuttle was VERY SLOW, Be careful!!, we couldn't get back to the departure point on time, but Alex waited for us patiently rather than abandoned us in the valley, THANKS GOD!!
The only and tiny pity was the time we stay at the valley just about 3 hours long started from we off the bus, I thought it would be 4 hours, wish to have more time in valley to explore more stops during this rare opportunity.

Yosemite speaks for itself, awesome. Lucky to have a great guide in Alex who kept people engaged along the way with commentary and the occasional joke, good and not so good. If time is an issue then this tour is for you.

I rated this trip for the second time, I don't know why didn't published my first review.
This tour really deserves five stars. Our guide Dodge I'm not sure its correct spelling is so prepared and shared so much knowledge regarding the area community, culture and all sort of perspective, kids may be boring though.
He brought his own binoculars and let us used.
The company front desk also quick response when I ask for the complementary hotel pick up.
