“Fun, Fascinating and Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My brother and I came to Sequoia with great expectation for a wonderful experience and our hopes were met. Our guide Sheila was informative, friendly and you could really tell that she was enjoying herself. We were paired with an interesting group of companions...a group of Hungarians and a wonderful senior couple. I think everyone on the tour had a good time.
We learned a lot about the park, its trees and other natural sights. I was able to take some spectacular pictures of the park. We also enjoyed our lunch at the hotel and were able to take a nice hike near the General Sherman tree to work it off. We also got good advice on how to book a Crystal cave tour the next day, which we enjoyed.

“Awesome !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stephanie is passionate about preservation and was a great guide. Things we would have not done if we didn't book the tour

Know the history of the place that you don't find in wiki or general google search.
Taste tannin :)
Be inside a tree
Get great photos
Drive the windy road
Go to spots that are not listed in attractions page
Wait for the long queue for the shuttle bus
See the places leisurely pace without lot of crowd. It makes a huge difference - when you are the only person in the meadow.
Answer all the silly questions we had :)

We stayed for one more day - she helped plan the second day trip in Kings Canyon and lot more reasons...

“Unbelievable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I always wanted to see the Sequoias, so maybe I am biased. The tour was incredible, there are no words to express the feeling of being so close to that giants masterpieces of nature. Stephanie was a great guide, very knowledgeable and passionate. Excellent tour and experience overall.

“Wonderful tour of Sequoia National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Paul picked us up at our hotel at 8:00 and brought us back around 5:00. We had an amazing day. He showed us spots that we never would have found on our own. Lunch at the Lodge was on your own, but wonderful. His stories kept us entertained all day. The hikes he took us to weren't too strenuous, but were just enough to know we'd seen the sights. Can't recommend this tour company enough!

“Best tour ever thanks to Sequoia Sightseeing Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This was our first trip to the Sequoia National Park. We made the plans on a whim, using credit card points for the plane flight. Best thing we've done. We were there only three days.

We stayed in Three Rivers so we had the all day tour.

Paul made this a great trip. He is entertaining and informative. This is something he is very knowledgeable about and his life stories make it obvious that he loves this area, its history, and environment. In addition those stories gave us a better understanding of how vast the park is. This is the only way for a first-timer to get to see as much as possible.
