Originally we were not planning on doing this or any type of tour in the park however I'm so glad we did. The ranger that led the tour was so knowledgeable and had some great fun facts about the history of the park. We definitely saw the park in a way we would of never seen it if we hadn't... More

We have visited Yosemite many times and took this tour recently when visiting with two people who had never been there. The ranger who was the guide was very engaging and well informed about the Valley and its history, nature and geology. You could easily drive around to see each of these sites visited but hearing the additional information about... More

We took the 5:30 PM tour the minute we aarrived in Yosemite, and it was great! In two hours, we learned a lot about the history of the park, the wildlife...and we were able to preview most of the major sights without the stress of driving and trying to find things on maps. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and... More

We signed up for this because as the driver in our family, I wanted to be able to see and enjoy all the beautiful sites Yosemite has to offer and not keep my eyes on the road all the time. This tour was a perfect option. An open air tram so you can get lots of great pictures. They stop... More

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
