We had just one day to see the Park, so we chose Yosemite Close Up Tours and it was the best tour we booked in our 15-day trip across the US. Our guide (Daniel) was a true fountain of knowledge, from wildlife to historical events. The food (we booked lunch) was frsh and tasty. This tour remains one of the best memories from the trip and I hope to be able to go back in a few years and repeat it.

Everything about this tour was very good - organisation and itinerary (which had to be changed due to a fire closing the normal route taken), the tour guide (who was very pleasant and knowledgeable), and the location (which was just stunning). I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wants to see Yosemite.

We enjoyed this tour a lot. Ira was very knowledgable about the history, geology, and trees of the area. It is a full day - met at 7:30 and returned at 7. He even brought his telescope so we could see climbers on El Capitan 'up close'. Should have a first aid kit onboard the van since there is a bit of maneuvering during the day.

We cant recommend this highly enough. We only had one day in the park and chose this tour..... so glad we did as Ken and Lisa were simply brilliant .... local knowledge of the history featuring the key highlights of the park. to put it simply .... excellent value for money, from which you will come away with a great overview of the park and some simply stunning photos of a beautiful park. Yosemite is the most beautiful national park i have every had the luck to visit.

We arranged this tour for the first day we were in the Park and that was excellent since John, our expert guide, offered a driving trip to give us a perspective of where everything is and also highlighted and recommended specific places to return to the following day, on our own. He recommended hikes that were perfectly suited for us. The tour itself-John was prompt and the vehicle was clean. There were only 4 of us on the tour and we all started from El Portal. It was a full day and John set up a very effective tour but he also was flexible for stops along the way for brief walks and photo ops. Lunch was provided and we enjoyed a pleasant picnic. The tour was a full day and with John's expertise and familiarity, it was worth every penny. The cost included the admission to the Park.
