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

We did this 2 hour tour to get ourselves orientated in the Park. Our tour guide was great. We learnt a lot about Yosemite & saw enough to choose where we wanted to go back to for further exploration. Recommend this tour for all first time visitors.

We debated about a whole day on a tour, but since we were there 2 full days it seemed the thing to do and boy are we glad to have done it. It starts at 8:30am at the lodge so we only had to walk across the street to get on the bus. Our driver and tour director was Herb... More

I was able to book this tour when I booked my 2 nights stay at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls online. I'm glad I did! We choose the 10am tour and it picked everyone up right at the lobby of our hotel. We have never been to Yosemite before, so I think this was a great way for us to... More

You can catch this tour from Yosemite Lodge at the Falls (one of the shuttle stops). It is a tram ride that had multiple stops along the way. I recommend this tour as you learn all about the park - Our guide was wonderful. Stops include photo ops.

I give Yosemite 2 stars and the tour guide none. The guide sat in his highchair pontificating about his philosophy of life, drawing inane analogies between the wilderness and life, when he should have been discussing Yosemite. It would have been a lot more interesting to hear about Yosemite's history and the issues it faces, but there wasn't much of... More

One day in advance we bought tickets for this 2 hour tour. As it was almost sold out we bought the last 2 tickets for the 10 am tour. It should take 2 hours and would bring you to some nice viewpoints ... it was highly recommended by the Yosemite staff theirselves. The tour takes two hours and it stops... More

This was a two hour, ranger led tour on an open air tram. We were given a chance to view all the major attractions and areas in the valley. We had a couple of stops along the way for photo opportunities and a restroom break. The ranger’s narration was excellent. She shared all types of information throughout the tour and... More
