Very good tour of the valley floor. Tour was in an open air shuttle, so be prepared for hot or cool, as the case may be. Guide was also very good pointing out the high points.

The view of Yosemite Falls from Yosemite Valley Floor was gorgeous and breath taking. This is must for everyone to see at least once in their life. A must go for all.

We took our 80-year-old mother to Yosemite and knew she could not walk far enough or well enough to see all the sights so we took this tour. It was an open-air tram with bench-seating. There were 5 people to a seat and it was comfortable. The tour guide was a park ranger with a headset/speaker so we heard everything... More

On a positive note, this tour is a great way to cover the highlights of Yosemite in a short time. However, this operation is not very organized. We had booked our reservation a month in advance and they had put us down for the wrong date. Thankfully, we did manage to get on a tour an hour later. The tram... More

My wife and I took a moonlight tour of the valley and loved it. The tour started from Yosemite Lodge and went through the valley, past El Capitan (with stops along the way), and paused at Tunnel View for incredible views and hot chocolate. After the break we went back down into the valley, stopping once for a bathroom break.... More

We took the Valley Floor Tour at night. The tours are offered a few days prior to a full moon so if you happen to be in the park during this time - you definitely need to take this tour! The guide was very informative and the views were completely different than what you see during the day. Amazing experience!... More

This tour was a great way to get an overview of the vastness of Yosemite National Park. Having made reservations online before arriving, it was the first thing on our agenda. Parking was an issue; our tour began at 3:00 pm and we thought we had arrived with plenty of time to spare. However, finding a place to park proved... More

The open tram tour is definitely worthwhile. You get to see all of Yosemite valley and learn some of the history. You won't get time to do any hikes off the tour, but you'll get a few key stops to get some good photos.

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
