We loved the tour, we wish we had few more hours to explore yosemite national park more :. Our driver sebley, i hope i got his name right, was very good. He gave us proper guidance wherever required and drove wonderfully. Bus was good and the journey too was enjoyed.
The trip was very enjoyable. Our driver was very knowledgeable and extremely personable. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Our driver and tour guide, Kaboosh, was very knowledgable and friendly, I enjoyed it very much!
A beautiful place to visit! So glad we took a tour. Our guide was informative and the bus was comfortable.
It was a long day on a bus, but totally worth it! The driver was very kind and allotted us enough time in the park to see as much as possible. It was a great day!
Perfect day in one of the most beautiful park in California ! The driver was very friendly and competent. Although the trip was pretty long, it was worth it. We had time on our own there to do whatever we wanted.
I highly recommend this trip to any tourist in California.
The tour was very well organized. Our driver Kabush was the best :) Thank you!
It is a long haul from San Francisco to Yosemite leaving little time to see much in the Park. However the trip was a real pleasure nonetheless! It was great to have someone else do the driving. We enjoyed visiting a cross section of California including coast range, central valley, foothills and sierras. Our driver and narrator, Alex, was a super guy and guide A. He was a superb and safe driver and provided interesting anecdotes along the way. He had done his homework and was most personable and caring!
Advice for future tours: Leave Yosemite an hour later to allow more time in the park it would be impossible to leave any earlier. Organize the return drop off more efficiently.
This is one of the better tour we experience compared to Grand Canyon South Rim. Our driver Ardolfo is the most dedicated bus drivers I've seen since traveling on Greyhound and Trailway buses from the seventies to present.
Fantastic. Driver, Kaboosh was so knowlegeable and an excellent driver. Showed enormous patience with 5 people who were 25 minutes late for departure. Only negative was woman who told me the night before when I called to confirm that I would be picked up at my hotel at 6. When that did not happen I took a cab to Grey Line office. I spoke with clerk and he told me that there was no notation of pick-up. Moreover,nick up would have been at 6:20 but there was no pick up at my hotel.
Day trip to Yosemite was fantastic, our tour guides name was Doug. He seemed very knowledgable of the area and had been doing the tours since the early nineties. Would recommend this tour to anyone. Absolutely breathtaking views!
The tour information is not clear enough so far as you only have 2 hours on the ground to wander around. You commence the trip at 6:30, enter the park at 11am, but do not get off the bus until 1pm. You are due back at 3pm to return to SF. Next time I would stay at least overnight, if not longer. Having said that, I do not regret doing this tour. The scenery is breathtaking beautiful, we thoroughly enjoyed our two hours, but the drive there and back is long and tedious. Stunningly beautiful park.
Exceptional trip. We had a perfect day and saw Yosemite at its best, which worlds can't discrib the natural beauty of place. the driver Antonio was very informative . Organisation of trip went well with pick up and delivery all done without a hitch. Would thoroughly recommend
Be prepared for a long day if you take this trip as it is four and a half hours on the coach each way. That said, it was worth every minute of it. Yosemite is absolutely breathtaking and we were lucky enough to see it with bright blue skies and sunshine, with a dusting of snow .... totally magical. Our driver was Manny and he had a wealth of knowledge to share with us and knew all the best places to pull over to take photos. He was friendly too and made the day hugely enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend this trip.

Everything about this tour was great. Obviously Yosemite is just beyond description. The tour was fantastic, the driver excellent and knowledgeable. The journey doesn't seem to take that long because of the interesting commentary from the driver/guide and the changing scenery along the way. I will definitely do this again if I get the chance.
absolutely amazing to go in SFO
magnificent natural park and a refreshing place for all workaholics to relax and enjoy
would highly recommend to stay overnight coz it's too big to walk around n take photos..... and the starry night must be unforgettable......i'm regretting not to stay for a night at least
the driver/ tour guide was so funny and informative. everyone in the tour enjoyed very much
On Day 3, we went to Yosemite National Park 140 per person. This is a very early rise as the trip is about 4.5 hours to get there. This is for nature lovers and the big attraction here is the famous Half Dome. On the way back to the city, we stopped at Treasure Island.
The trip was great! Our driver/tour guide was very informative, and the bus was comfortable. We were able to see a lot of the great scenic views of the park while on the bus and were able to stop and get photos. Once the driver dropped us off for the 3 hours of exploration, my daughter, her friend and I enjoyed climbing the rocks of Yosemite Falls. I just wish we had more time to explore the other attractions of the park.
Wonderful tour and great information was provided along the tour. Very interesting trip through a beautiful park. The trivia along the route was very informative and the driver was extremely nice.
We couldn't have asked for a better day or tour guide! Ray was terrific - informative, funny, and caring. There were just enough stops along the way and once we were in Yosemite for breaks and photo ops to make the ride bearable, and plenty time in the park to get the sense of the wonder of it all without feeling we needed to do everything there was to do. Haven't had a bad experience with VIator tours yet!
