This is a great way to look around Yosemite Valley and hear the history,story, facts about this amazing place. Park ranger gives all the info and our ranger has been doing this for a good number of years - think she said 10. As others have said you are in an open air trolley, so if it is a hot... More

Valley floor tour was recommended by a seasoned traveller (friend of a friend) during our busy schedule. We didn't want to hike so the tour was perfect and guide very informative. Highly recommend making an effort to visit if you are within a couple of hundred miles as it was just breathtaking scenery. The drive north to Lake Tahoe was... More

This tour was the best part of our trip to Yosemite. it was a fun ride around the entire valley floor in an open-air bus. The guide was fun and informative. In a couple of short hours, we got to see the highlights of Yosemite. It's a perfect choice if you only have a short time in the park. There... More

We rode around in open air trolleys, led by a park naturalist who told us about things as we went. They made several picture stops - but not enough for some of us! They would point out things going by, but did not stop so we could get a good picture. However, we saw many great things, and it was... More

Excellent tour given by Ranger Jamie Kennedy! She is knowledgeable, cheery, and conducts the tour like a PRO. Parking in Yosemite is absolutely atrocious - this tour alleviates THAT aggravation and keeps the focus on nature and NOT parking woes! We took the 1pm-ish tour and would have preferred the morning probably, just because of the HEAT that day! The... More

If you have never been to Yosemite Valley this tour is a must do. It travels around the valley with a park ranger speaking of the details of Yosemite. You'll get a bit of park history, Native American stories, and details on the main attractions. The morning tours get a bit over booked and the later ones are the best... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours learning about the park and looking for wildlife. Not the cheapest thing to do here but very enjoyable. Would recommend

We took the 10 a.m. tour and were happy that we went at that time. The Valley has been experiencing some heat so early is best. The tour meets at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls so from Curry Village where we stayed, we boarded the shuttle bus by 9:15 and arrived with plenty of time. Nice views of El Capitan,... More

We took the tour as soon as we arrived at Yosemite. It was a great tour, and allowed for us to plan out what we wanted to see during our next full day in the Valley. I highly recommend taking the tour!

This tour is comprehensive with a very knowledgeable and articulate ranger guide - The open air trolley offered open, unhindered panoramic views of Yosemite, excellent well planned stops and easy transportation around this beautiful NP
