We decided to take an organised tour into the park as it is really quite a long drive requiring concentration and we wanted to enjoy the scenery. We found the ideal arrangement with DiscoveryYosemite. 15 of us went on a spacious, well equipped bus with Glenn, who was just great - geographer, geologist, biologist, social historian and all round nice...

He made the tour a success! We got to see the most important highlights of Yosemite,... More

We took a full day tour with Steve last week. The tour was excellent and Steve kept us entertained with informative facts about the park..He offered everyone binoculars and there were books and coloring to keep the little ones busy during the long trip. There were enough snacks, drinks, and the lunch was excellent. We had restroom breaks and the... More

Coming from Australia it was our first time in the snow so we were unsure about driving along the slippery roads. Steve our guide showed us the major features in the one day we had to explore Yosemite Valley. If you are thinking of doing this tour rest assured you will have a great time. We did and will never...

Steve provided us with binoculars. Because of the drought the water falls were small, but because we could use the binoculars , we could see... More

We signed up for the tour and, due to the price, hoped it would be worth the fee. We left Tenaya Lodge at 8:30 and returned around 5:15pm. Our guide, Steve, did a great job of touring the park and providing interesting stories and pictures along the way. Unless you want to go it on your own, this tour visits... More

Discover Yosemite tour is an excellent way to see Yosemite and leave the driving to someone else. Friendly and knowledgeable (great insider/local tips) tour driver/host. Great lunch provided. I would highly recommend this tour!

Yosemite park has such a concentration of awe-inspiring views of granite, trees, meadows, and waterfalls/streams in infinite combinations that even a mediocre tour company could be rated very good simply bringing you to the location. However, Discover Yosemite is an excellent tour service, with friendly, knowledgeable people from the reservations person to the personable guide. This, combined with Yosemite's beauty,... More

I booked the tour ahead of my visit to Yosemite and whilst the price may seem steep, it was worth it. The tour is a full day trip and includes lunch, which was delicious and with a personalised label, there were also snacks and drinks included and available throughout the day. Our tour guide and driver was Glenn, picking us... More

This was our first trip visiting Yosemite. We booked this tour through the Tenaya Lodge, where we were staying. The tour bus picked us up at 8:30 a.m. Our tour guide was Marcia, our van had only 28 people on board, very comfortable, large windows and air conditioning. A pre selected bag lunch was provided by Raley's, all day snacks,... More
