If this is your first time at Yosemite then you must take this tour. Marsha was our tour guide. She is incredibly knowledgeable and not just about the sites but also the history of the park. Because she grew up in the area, she is able to provide you with her personal prospective which makes the tour even more interesting.... More

Everything about this service was exceptional. Saul was our driver and tour guide. He is amazing. Always punctual for scheduled stops yet friendly, engaging and SO knowledgeable about the park. The roads could be challenging for any driver even in a car. We got to enjoy the full experience of viewing the majesty of the park without the worry of... More

We did this tour today. Our guide, Saul, was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about Yosemite. He took us to all the major sights and provided excellent narrative as we went. The only downside was the lunch at The Ahwahnee. We had pre-ordered as I think everyone does, but the food was bland, mass produced and we were made to feel... More

We did a west coast swing and visited SF, Yosemite, and Carmel/Monteray. All were tremendous but we were blown away by Yosemite! We'd seen the pictures- everyone has- but it was absolutely, stunningly beautiful. You go through that tunnel and you just can't believe the view when you emerge- incredible. We spent two days there in perfect weather and we'll... More

I read about Discover Yosemite's Full Moon hikes to Sentinel Dome several months before our trip, and was so glad I reserved a couple spots for the August 18 tour. Glenn picked us up timely in a modern and spotless small bus. There were 17 people on our tour, and Glenn learned their names quickly and made each of them... More

Ranger Ralph made our trip truly unforgettable!!! He was the perfect guide and made sure we saw everything!!! For once, I was in all of our family vacation pictures because Ralph was our photographer. He was a wealth of information and made sure our teens as well as our 9 year had a fantastic time!!! This is the only way... More

This is the only way to see the park! We would never have seen all we did if we had to travel the park on our own. The traffic was crazy and parking hard to find but our guide, Marcia, had it all under control and made sure we saw the most amazing sights of Yosemite. Marcia's, narrative was so... More

Let me start by saying that we have never been to Yosemite National Park. We wanted to find a way to hit the most amazing sights in the park and Discover Yosemite was IT!! Our drivers name was Joe and he had more knowledge about Yosemite National Park than you could ever imagine. And his driving skills were amazing (even... More

We were wary. The last tour we took was at Denali, and it ended up being with a rowdy group who sang loudly and a guide who parked perilously close to the end of a steep canyon. What a DIFFERENCE "DISCOVER" makes! We were picked up in a timely fashion on a bus of a reasonable size for the terrain.... More

We stayed at Tenaya Lodge while on a fly-drive in the States a couple of weeks ago during July, with only two full days on our travels in Yosemite. The first day in Yosemite became a pool day so we had to maximise the second day, the idea being see as much as possible. We spoke to Concierge who took... More
