My wife and I returned home to the UK two months ago following a glorious Fly-Drive holiday around California to celebrate my 70th Birthday and our 42nd wedding anniversary. Our schedule was quite a tight one taking in San Francisco - Yosemite Park - Las Vegas - Hoover Dam - South Rim Grand Canyon and finally five days of total... More

Discover Yosemite “did an outstanding job” with this tour. I picked up this tour at the Oakhurst Visitor’s Center on a Saturday morning, greeted by Glen [our guide for the day]. After making an additional stop to take on a few more visitors, away we went. Outstanding. This tour was not only very well organized; Glen was extremely knowledgeable, personable... More

We did the private full day tour and we are so glad we did. Steve was our guide and led us through the park as a true expert. Our kids (9 & 11) enjoyed the day. We appreciated going at our own pace, but still taking in all the park highlights. If we had not gone with Discover Yosemite, we... More

My husband and I took the full day Yosemite tour and we found it to be a wonderful experience. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and we were able to avoid the crowds and long lines. Our guide, Saul, was marvelous. His knowledge of the area cannot be matched as he had an answer for every question our group had for... More

A friend who had already visited Yosemite recommended taking the Discover Yosemite tour and I am glad she did. It is well worth every penny. The tour bus is small with big windows. Everyone has a good view no matter where they are sitting. There are multiple stops in the morning for pick ups in Mariposa and Oakhurst. The great... More

OK, i have to admit I was skeptical of this tour when friends we were travelling with set this up. A BUS tour of Yosemite? The reviews on here, though, were very strong. And totally right. This is a great tour, and certainly the best way to see the park, particularly if you want to see the major attractions in... More

We just returned to Maryland and I want to take the time to commend you on your wonderful tour service. A friend in San Diego had sent us a local newspaper review of Discover Yosemite tours so we decided to book it. Glenn Bennik, our tour guide, was absolutely amazing. His deep knowledge of Yosemite and his amusing anecdotes made... More

Pictures: one inside the tour bus and a lot of gift shop pictures. There are plenty of reviews, yes the park was beautiful, breath taking, lots to see and a great way to enjoy an overview of the top park sites without having to worry about things like: bears getting into your car, parking, and missing the view because you...

I read about Discover Yosemite online and figured I'd give it a try since June is a super busy month and I didn't want to struggle with parking and getting stuck in traffic. Saul was the guide for the day and he was really great. Picked me up from the hotel and got a few other people on board before... More

Spectacular experience: organization and punctuality were perfect, the tourists spots are very well selected, and the guide – in our case, Grant – was outstanding: very nice, helpful and a Yosemite encyclopedia. For those who want to see the main attractions in one day, with a lot of history and explanations, it´s money very well spent.
