Relaxing, informative and scenic tour with a ranger guide. Great overview for first-timers. Did this w/ kids ages 9-14.

Take this tour first and then decide what you want to go back to. The ranger, Katie, was great and had lots of interesting information. It is a great overview of Yosemite. The tour was 2 1/2 hours with bathroom breaks and water on board. It is worth every cent we paid. I also recommend the movies at the welcome... More

I highly reccomend opting for the open air tram tours as you have no barrier between you and the sights. The Valley Floor tram tour was great! We stopped in the valley and at Tunnel View. We learned a lot about the park from the ranger who led the tour and got a lot of great pictures. The park is... More

This tour is good to take. Gives you a good overview of the park. You ride in an open tram. The tour guide was excellent. It only takes about a hour and 15 mins. and it is offered several times a day. We took the 6pm tour which was nice because the light is great that time of day. The... More

While seeing the valley floor independent of your own vehicle and in an open air environment, there were some things that we didn't care for. Too many people were crammed onto the tram. We were lucky to have only 4 adults in our row, but others had even more, with their few kids on laps. The tour operator was a... More

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Yosemite. This two hour tour gives a decent perspective of the Valley Floor and the view from below. The only room for improvement would be to allow more than 10 minutes to stop and take photos. This seemed very rushed and didn't really allow for time to truly experience the awe of the... More

We stayed three days at the Yosemite Lodge and had a grand time using the Shuttle Buses to get around to different points of interest and places to go walking. Such an amazing corner of our world! However the highlight would be the Valley Floor Tour we took on their open topped trailer. It was comfortable and very easy to... More

My husband and I did not have much time to sightsee Yosemite -only one day. We were also traveling with our 11 month old & 84 yr old grandpap! This tour was perfect not too long for our 11 month old. It took you on an open trolly through Yosemite. It was way easier than driving it all yourself. We... More

Nice way to get an overview of the valley, along with history and background from the guide. Good way to get around when car traffic is bad and parking difficult.
