What a wonderful experience! Our guide Ranger Kaleb was totally engaging, committed, passionate, and inspiring. The entire family enjoyed the two-hour ride (I was a little worried about the little ones, but they seemed completely enthralled). Tons of interesting facts and stories and aha moments. Thank you Ranger Kaleb!

This tour was excellent. Our tour guide was very informative and right from the start we were taken to areas that offered great views of the Yosemite Valley. There are plenty of opportunity to take some great photos. The tour takes 2 hours and is in an open top vehicle (in the cooler months they use a coach), so you... More

Great tour, helped us understand a lot more about Yosemite, how it came to be formed,and more recent history. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable and pleasant. Great way to see the valley as the vehicle is open topped.

This is an open tram tour and is hosted by a US Park Ranger. The tour does a loop through the valley floor, stopping frequently at points of interest. Our Ranger provided a steady stream of interesting information! All in all this provides a great overview and good value.

The Park service offers two tours, one is two hours long, the other is about 4 hours. Either one is well worth your time and money, especially if you are a first time visitor. They give you a great overview of the valley and helps you decide what you want to explore in greater depth.

There is a two hour open air tour vehicle that seats about 50 and a four hour tour in a luxury air conditioned bus with bathroom that seats about the same. Both are great but you need to book early because all tours usually sell out. The drivers/tour guides are very knowledgeable of the park, rock formations, animals, vegetation, and... More

The floor of Yosemite can be very crowded with autos on its roads. The floor tour is worth every penny as it bypasses auto after auto in its special lane. The tour is conducted by park rangers who describe what you see with great enthusiasm. This is a good start at the beginning of your visit. You can then revisit... More

The two hour Valley floor tour was a great way to see and hear about all the major features of the valley area. The narrated comments filled in the blanks and pointed out features and historical facts that might be unknown. If you can't get tickets it's worth a try, their is a wait list for each tour. We were... More

First day in Yosemite so wanted to get the lay of the land ...liked the open tram. We had a ranger give the tour he is also rock climber so lots of insight on climbing good way to start our stay. Wear a hat...they did have water in a cooler. Fee was worth the ride.
