To see Yosemite if you enter from Hwy 41 and after passing out of the tunnel and being able to stop and view the entire valley floor is breathtaking. It is the best way to gain a first view of this grand picturesque valley. I highly recommend this route if you can do it.

We went on this tour and the bus driver was a fountain of knowledge about Yosemite. Told us the history of Yosemite since the 1800s. Stopped at some amazing places to take pictures. Even saw a coyote

Truly one of the nations treasures not to be missed. We visited in the off-season and it was still truly amazing. A tour was so informative and enjoyable, a way to see some amazing views and get the background of the park, areas and history that make it what it is. If you have the chance stay in the valley...

We only had a few hours to spend in the park and opted to do this tour to see as much of the park as we could in a short space of time. We had great weather - it might not be so good if there was poor visibility. The views were spectacular. Our tour guide was knowledgable and informative... More

It's an easy walk from the side of the road (where you can park) to the bottom of the hill where the good view is. As the water comes over the top, the breeze catches it and blows it around - especially when there's not a lot of water. Looks beautiful in the sun!

Yosemite was beautiful. The falls were dry due to no rain but still pretty. I loved seeing the fall colors on the trees again since back home was cold and snowing already. This is a beautiful drive very long to see everything so plan nothing else for that day the roads are very curvy and it literally takes half an... More

We only had a day in Yosemite and took this tour as a whirl wind way of seeing the sights. The CONS: It is overcrowded with four to five adults per seat. Really three to four should be the max. It goes on all of the paved roads so cars are passing you and rude drivers routinely stuck their heads... More
