He has written several books on Yosemite, has a website, and it chock full of information. He is passionate about his job and... More

Booking this tour was a 'last-minute decision' because we were thinking we can just drive around the area ourselves. Lucky it was winter, plenty of snow, difficult to drive, and there's still seats left in the tour. The 2-hour tour has plenty of stops for photo-ops. Bill, our driver-guide is very informative, one gets the feeling that this is not... More

A fun, nice easy way to see Yosemite Valley and the beautiful scenery. It is worth the time it takes to complete the tour.

Our first visit to Yosemite in the winter, so we decided to let someone else do the driving. We were not disappointed. Our guide (Bill) was experienced, informative most friendly--without being over-bearing. Any trip to Yosemite MUST include a valley floor tour by Bill!!

This tour is a great introduction to the Yosemite Valley Floor enabling you to get a good idea of where things are and where you would like to go back to later on to spend more time. If you don't have much time in the park, then this tour lets you see the major breathtaking views in what has to... More

I think this would be an excellent way to start a trip to Yosemite as you get a great background of the park as well as an overview of the park and what to expect. We had a limited amount of time in the park so this was PERFECT and our guide was extremely knowledgeable.

Have always wanted to visit this iconic place in California. The White giants like the Half Dome and El Capitan have a huge "wow-factor" and the many different hiking trails offers a differential experiance out of the ordinary. We spent three whole days in the valley without any redundancy. You can easily spend even more days in the valley. Truely... More

Quite good, but not as good as hoped. More a personal history than an in depth look at the valley. Go by foot.
