Great tour run by very knowledgable Rangers. Wish had done on 1st day rather than second as a great overview of the area and helps to plan rest of the stay.

This tour is worth the money. The tour is narrated by a park ranger, a lot of interesting information is given about the park, wildlife, etc. It's a good overview of the valley floor. I was nervous about being in an open air tram during the heat of the day. The tram sticks to the shade as much as it... More

We changed our plans from driving to Glacier Point to taking the Valley Floor Tour. We were visiting Yosemite on the weekend of 4th/5th July and the traffic had been very busy getting into the park on the 4th so we thought we might be stuck in traffic getting up to Glacier Point (from the Vililage) so we decided to...

The Yosemite Valley Floor Tour was a fantastic way to get acclimated to the park. We had a fantastic tour guide and were able to see so many sites on this one tour. We had several opportunities for photographs. Would highly recommend doing this on the first day of your Yosemite visit!

We enjoyed being able to sit in relative comfort and view all the big sites in the Yosemite Valley, as well as listen to commentary from our guide, who told us many facts about the history of the place, as well as the wildlife, the plant life, rainfall, etc. It was worth the price and we were able to go...

We went out on the 6pm tour with Ranger Scott. Great time of day to go, as cooling down a bit, and the changing light played to great effect. Ranger Scott was a knowledgable and enthusiast guide, who talked with passion and humour. Thoroughly recommend.

The park rangers who do this tour are funny and very informative. A great place to start your trip and get a good lay of the land in Yosemite. Only drawback is the way they put groups on before other guests, regardless of where you are in line.

For first-time visitors to Yosemite this is a good way to get the lay of the land you can later explore on your own. You'll hit all the Yosemite Valley high spots and learn much about the history and the geology of this unique area.

So many beautiful things to see and so worth the time. It's best to plan your entire day at the park. We did the tour it was $25 per person with a park ranger. Get an end seat on the tour so you can take photos. The Ranger will make stops so bring that camera.
