“Excellent introduction to the park!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We did the half day tour with Paul, owner and we weren't disappointed. Paul picked us up at the hotel and took us to all the highlights of the park (auto log, tunnel log, General Sherman) as well as amazing hidden gems (a hollow tree that you can climb into and get amazing photos, a beautiful meadow with a fallen sequoia used as a pathway, fallen trees with amazing roots). Paul is very knowledgeable about the park and was able to answer all of our questions. He is very laid back and passionate about his work!!! An excellent tour for people of all ages and a great introduction to the park! We wish we had more time as Paul had lots of recommendations on areas for people to explore on their own!

“Informative and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Our guide, Sheila, has worn many caps over a surprisingly long period of time--all activities directly related to preserving the park and its unique flora. She talks very knowledgeably about every aspect of the life cycle of the Sequoia trees, but in a manner that is refreshingly relaxed and friendly. I really learned something on her tour.

“A Sequoia "Must Do"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This was the perfect introduction to Sequoia National Park. Paul, a life long resident of the area, not only gets you to every part of the park that you will want to experience but provides fun and interesting commentary, as well. Take advantage of this well priced, easy, enjoyable excursion!

“The Highlight of our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Choosing to take this tour was truly the highlight of our trip. We traveled by motorhome with my 80 year old parents from Southern California. Everything we did during the week of our vacation in the Sequoias was so much more enjoyable because of the tour we took with Sequoia Sightseeing Tours.

The tour itself was awesome. Paul, our guide was so delightful. He was fun and incredibly knowledgeable. He was also helpful, courteous and patient with my 81 year old Mother who moved a little slower than the rest.

He picked us up right in front of our motorhome in our campground right on time. The van was spacious, clean and the air conditioning was awesome. Each person in the van had their own vent so it made each person really comfortable! Paul really knows all the ins and out of the park. The history of the park and features including fun insider stories about his experiences working in various positions inside the park for over 20 years kept us laughing and learning at the same time.

The tour was perfectly paced for everyone and included many stops that included bathroom facilities. We saw all the highlights of the park in comfort. We loved our trip very much.

Just to show you how great this was... we were on our way home and we spotted a bear from the side of the road. Instead of just saying... look ... there's a bear... and continuing on to hurry up and drop us off... he turned the van around and found a perfect place for us to watch the bear for several minutes while the bear meandered around climbing trees. That was WAY above and beyond and really drove home that he wanted us to really enjoy our trip. That attitude was present throughout the entire tour and it came through in every little detail. Thank you so much! John, Phyllis, Mike and Wendy

“Excellent Tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Only being in the area a short time we thought it would be worthwhile investing in a guided tour and we are so pleased that we did. We decided on the full day tour and visited the majority of the main sights, Paul our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, informative & fun. We saw and learnt lots of things that we would not, had we decided to go it alone - including Bears!
The service provided was excellent, Paul arrived at the agreed time to collect us and also delivered us back to our door, it was also nice to meet the other people taking the tour all of whom were really nice an friendly. The restaurant chosen for lunch was good, with nice food at a reasonable price. We highly recommend Sequoia Sightseeing Tours.
