We didn't have a lot of time so this two hour tour was just the ticket. As we didn't know when we would get there we didn't book just turned up - made the 1pm tour with 3 mins to spare! We got to see all the highlights, found out some history & had a laugh with the guide. We... More

This is not to be missed. They take you to all the neat sites of the park. They (the park rangers) give you lists of great info and let you hop off and take picture etc. This is a mist do so you can get the background on why things are named what they are and why be joy the... More

Book this tour to start your trip in Yosemite! It gives you a great introduction to the park, and a lot of info in a short time. Nice way to see where you want to venture out while you are visiting. Book in advance of getting there, the first tour of the day or last one if you arrive later... More

If you don't want to do the research and drive to all the viewing spots and queue to park... This is the tour you. Knowledgeable park rangers do the narrative while you are driven round in an open topped bus. Remember water and sun screen as can get hot. Great value at around $25

We chose to do the full day grand tour in Yosemite and this was a big mistake. We thought it would be a good idea to see all the sights in a day and get some great insider knowledge, but we were completely wrong. Whilst it's a full day tour you actually only get off the bus twice, plus once... More

The tour was fine. We were only in the park for two days so I felt like it was a good way to see things quickly. The tour lasted about an hour and forty five minutes. It is an open air tram and the ranger sits in front of you and narrates the tour. Our ranger was a female and... More

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
