“Great Information on the Audio Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We've been to both Mariposa Grove and to Sequoia National Park. We went to Mariposa first, and while the tour is not cheap at Mariposa, the information provided was fantastic and well worth it for our time at Sequoia. Giant, beautiful trees to treasure.

“Giants!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Travelled from El Portal to Mariposa to see the giant sequoia trees. We expected to see more densely populated trees, but still got to see the grizzly giant tree. Next time, we would stay in Mariposa as the drive was rather long.

“Alternative to Sequoia NP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Our family didn't have time to hit Sequoia and Yosemite after driving from LA. I think that this side trip was a great alternative based on time constraints. The trail had some good information and views with quite a few famitly photo ops.

“Wonderfull”

A tram if you want to ride and a hike if you want to hike. NB if the gate is closed park in the 10 minute lot and wait and it will open soon

“Truly Amazing. Must Do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I'll start by mentioning that we also visited a redwood forest on the pacific coast, but they paled in comparison to the Giant Sequoias in the Mariposa Grove. We rode the tram which showed us the entire upper and lower grove in approx. 1.5 hrs. It would have taken half a day to walk the upper and lower groves. Plus, the driver gave a very good commentary full of information. We only stopped a few times, but there was ample opportunity for picture taking and if your camera could zoom even a little, you could get some great shots. There was also wildlife, deer and a few types of squirrel or chipmunk of some type. Lots of birds. It was really a highlight of our trip to Yosemite area. I HIGHLY advise a trip to Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.
