This was an extraordinary day! I highly recommend this tour especially if this is your first visit to Yosemite and/or only have a day to see Yosemite. The guide was knowledgeable, pleasant and funny. It was like riding with a family member! I could not have asked for a better tour experience.

Fantastic tour guide. Very informative and interesting. When we couldn't go up to Glacier Point straight away because of the weather, he changed around the tour to keep us all happy.

Really enjoyed the day and would massively recommend this tour! :

My elderly mother and I just took this tour yesterday and had an EXCELLENT time! Mickey, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took his time at all the stops to explain as well as patient as my mother walks much slower due to her age. We had a very memorable experience!

Richard was great! He was very knowledgeable. I had never been to Yosemite and I felt like he showed us all the highlights and more. I would have liked to spend less time at the covered bridge and more time at the Bridalvail falls or Tunnelview. Aside from that we were very pleased with the tour and especially with Richard. Our group was only 7 people which was wonderful. We had about 1.5 hours at lunch to do some exploring on our own which was also a very nice use of the time. Much thanks!

Our driver Cathy was knowledgeable and pointed out even the smallest points throughout our tour. Beautiful views and stops. Answered most questions and shared personal photos and other information.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2016

We toured with Crossroad Tours Company. The driver, Richard drove to fast going and coming to Glacier Point at Yosemite National Park. He did not obey the speed limited that was posted. We only had 35 minutes at the Glacier Point attraction 15 minutes was to stand in a long line for the lavatory and then it was a 5 - 10 minute hike to the peak of Glacier point. The Crossroad Tour van was old and not enough room for the number of passengers. This tour cost 129.00. It was not worth it. Use the tour company at Yosemite National Park, it only 40.00. Very disappointed with this company.

Driver arrived on time and was good tour driver, very conscious of safety and parking. Since most of the time is spent in the van, traveling, he could do better in explaining history of the Park, its geologic formations, climate and weather influences, flora and fauna, and maybe more about the context of the Park in CA and US history. Our party of 5 included a middle aged father, mother who spoke little English, fluent in Arabic and a son who spoke English for them. They were from Lebanon.
