I was alone and with no car, so I decided to take this tour. Its a 4 hour tour and you only get off the bus for one hour in glacier point and 10 minutes in tunel view. you have great views, and the tour guide explains a lot, but I think its rather better to see less things and... More

Get there as soon as possible. Wonderful drive up with spectacular view as a reward. Take time to breath in the atmosphere and views. They are wonderful.

Glacier Point is not to be missed. Take the bus tour one way and hike back...the trails are easy though.

You have to be there to see the spectacular views. Picture does not do justice to the place. Make sure to take a picture while sitting on the rock as you come in. It will come out like you are very close to Half Dome

We drove up to Glacier point as we didn't have much time - the views were breathtaking. Worth doing! Even the drive up was spectacular.

The view of Yosemite Valley from 3000 feet above is amazing. Thankfully the road was opened early this year and we took full advantage. You can see Nevada Falls, Vernal Falls, Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and numerous other monoliths all from one location. We especially enjoyed staring over the rail to the valley floor-it's breathtaking. Words can't... More

Imagine yourself staring to a landscape that no word can describe. a MUST GO place. The place is well signalised and it is quite easy to reach. The hard part is to decide when to leave this place!

This is sooo worth the drive up to this view. You are guaranteed awesome views and pictures! You can see everything from here. Bring binoculars! We saw a bobcat up here and it was so close to us. got some amazing pictures. Was pleased to see a gift shop up here as well, with "Glacier Point" merchandise! Love love this... More

Awesome views, excellent at sunset. A wonderful place to go and enjoy! When we went, it opened early so we were lucky to see it with snow still on the ground. Definitely worth the drive!
