“Great Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We recently took the day tour to the Sequoia Park. One of the best days of our vacation. The guide was a wealth of information and fun to spend the day with. They timed the trip perfectly to avoid the long waits from the road construction inside the park. I highly recommend this tour. It was worth every penny. If we return to the area in the future, we will be a repeat customer. Thanks, Sheila.

“Excellent Tour of Sequoia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

This tour was great! I booked the full day tour and parked at the Comfort Inn in Three Rivers - I didn't have to drive at all so I could enjoy the beautiful sights - plus the drive into the park has many turns so I probably would have been sick at some point - Sheila was our tour guide -she was very informative and took us to all the must-see sights - She has worked practically every job you can in the park so she knows it like the back of her hand - and so she was able to show us things that the untrained eye couldn't spot - I def climbing on top of Morro Rock even tho it's 400 steps - it'll prep you for lunch (which sadly isn't included) - just beware that the food in the park is not cheap at all so it's best to bring your own food (not fault of the tour company of course) - overall we were very entertained and glad we were able to knock this experience off our bucket list - just breathtaking! Must do for all!

“Top Notch Tour!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

My family of four and one other couple just returned from spending two days with Sequoia Sightseeing Tours and our wonderful tour guide Stephanie. All of us originally had only the full day tour to Sequoia scheduled, but we enjoyed the day so much that we booked the following day with her for a trip to Kings Canyon. It is obvious from the very start that she (1) loves her job, (2) is extremely knowledgeable, and (3) enjoys sharing her passion with others. We have taken numerous tours across the world, and all agree that the past two days were the best tours we have ever taken! She was very patient and accommodating with my parents who have mobility issues, and I was very glad that she was driving the narrow, winding roads and not me! There is no way we would have seen as much of the two parks, nor learned as much about them and the surrounding area without her! We highly recommend Stephanie and Sequoia Sightseeing Tours for your vacation! It will be money and time well spent. Job well done, Stephanie - thanks again for a wonderful two days!

“Ideal way to see the giant Sequoias”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

This was the very best way to tour the Sequoia National Park and learn as much as possible about it in one day. Paul, the owner, was our driver and guide and he took wonderful care of us as well as everyone in the van. His knowledge of the area is top notch and after a full day tour with him you feel you will be friends forever. This was money well spent and we would do it again if we are ever fortunate enough to return. Thanks, Paul, for taking such good care of us and especially my husband, Bob, who couldn't do the walking due to mobility problems. He loved every minute of our day too. Our lunch at the Wukashi Lodge was a great treat as well.

“Great tour - time and money well spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We took a full day tour over Sequoia Park with a group of friends. We spent really great day in the Park. I very fast came to a conclusion that driving alone would not give us 10% of the experience and that taking a tour was a right move. Even driving a car along the windy road would have been not much fun. In addition in appeared that the road was in construction and the traffic was allowed only once an hour or even once every two hours. Our guide-company owner Paul picked us up from the hotel on time. Of course he knew perfectly when to place our tour van in the line for a passage through the construction. Paul was very professional, courteous and entertaining. We listened to his stories with great attention. He explained us a lot about the park and its sequoias. Showed us a lot interesting thinks that we would clearly miss if we were on our own. In summary, the very good tour, worth of money spent. I recommend it if you want to see Sequoia National Park.
