Gorgeous falls, vistas, drives and the giant Sequoia trees are an outdoor lovers piece of heaven. I went solo on this trip and really enjoyed the break into nature... good for your soul! Camping, lodges and shopping in the valley makes a good get away for all

I do not even have the words to describe this place. You need to go see it in person. So absolutely beautiful

I'm not sure I can put into words how stunningly beautiful Yosemite is. It's breathtaking. From the views at tunnel view to the village and Yosemite falls everything is amazing and you can't get any closer to nature. Unfortunately I just spent one day here but I could have spent much longer and hope to go back one day. Weather... More

A more beautiful place can simply not be imagined. Cool breeze, tall trees, great tour with park ranger in open air trailer.

What an amazing place. Even though it is so busy with tourists, it is well looked after and perserved beautifully. There are so many areas of natural beauty and plenty to explore. There is a shuttle bus to the major areas and also a couple of shops and cafes. You will even find a little post office where you can... More

I spent a day at Yosemite while in CA visiting family. My host had to work that day so I rented a car and drove to the park. There are several nice hiking trails and I enjoyed them. I even saw a baby bear! I would have enjoyed a few more hours to hike but I didn't feel like I... More

This is really a review of the park as a whole. In a word, "Spectacular!" The park's main attractions are all in much closer proximity than I expected but that allows the visitor to see everything within a short drive and then take the time to really explore the things that impress the most. In my case I was moved... More

The sheer grandeur of this national park takes your breath away. Saw the waterfalls, went for a walk to Mirror Lake, took in the museum and then Indian Village, two wonderful days with nature. Be warned: if you stay outside the valley there is a one hour drive up and down a jaw dropping mountainside road - be warned if... More

We travelled from Australia to see this amazing place. Although there were times on the very windy road that caused me to hold my breath it was well worth the effort. There are so many places to visit with all levels of fitness catered for. The free bus shuttle to key areas is a fabulous innovation. I could imagine this... More
