    I just had one day available to visit Yosemite and the tour allowed me to have an excellent experience. The tour was great from pick-up to drop-off at my hotel. Rose, the tour guide, was super knowledgeable about Yosemite. I would recommend it.

    Sequoia trees walk. It is about 1mile up and 1 mile back. Highly recommend this trip. We had a small group so that made it very enjoyable

    Robert was a terrific guide! He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He provided us with a lot of interesting facts and made the tour fun. Yosemite is beautiful and this was a great way to view a portion of it.

    Daniel was a terrific guide! He took us to several points of interest and was very knowledgeable not only about the park but the surrounding areas as well. I highly recommend this tour if you have limited time in the park to get the most bang for your buck.

    Rob was courteous, funny, and SOOO knowledgeable! We got to see so many things! From the giant sequoias, to El Capitan (and climbers!), and Yosemite Falls plus more. Would definitely recommend, especially to people who have never been to Yosemite.

    Julie was great! We covered all kinds of cool info and she was very pleasant. It was a great way to get a glimpse into some of the best parts of the park. 5 stars.

  • 02-Oct-2022

    Loved the small group (10 people) experience! Our tour guide, Julie, was knowledgeable and made the tour fun. Yosemite is, of course, beautiful. We were disappointed that we didn’t get to see Glacier Point, but that was out of their control. It was difficult to find parking at a few spots, probably because we were there on Oct 1 when park reservations were no longer required (so crowds were larger at popular spots). Overall, great experience. Highly recommend this tour!
