We took this tour as a way to get a quick overview of Yosemite. I wish we had spent a bit more money and signed up for a different tour option. Though kind, the tour guide was a bit much.... we felt uncomfortable with her presentation style. I admit, this is our problem, and other people might really enjoy her high energy approach. I would have preferred to hear more history of the park and not get a mini-lecture about how the other visitors were mistreating the park. Yes, it was inexpensive and offered a quick overview, but if you can spend a bit more money, perhaps look at other options.

First time to Yosemite for 2.5 days, and so glad we took this tour. We stayed at the Lodge and the tour starts/ends here. So very convenient. Bill was our driver. Fun guy with a wealth of knowledge. There are 5 to 6 stops along the way. It’s a great way to get an orientation so you can decide where you want to spend your time. Or if you only have a day, you’ll get a look at the key sites. Our trip lasted more than 2.5 hours. Highly recommend

It was our first time to Yosemite. We took the valley floor tour because we wanted to hear about history and geology and other facts while we were looking at the views and Colleen, our tour guide, did a wonderful job giving us great information. She was knowledgeable and passionate about Yosemite and a safe bus driver too! It was well worth the $38 ticket price and time well spent.

My expectation for this tour was that it would be a hokey tourist tour (Will we see Smokey the Bear today?). Boy was I wrong. The guide was extremely knowledgeable on all topics including geology, biology, history, etc. He has been giving tours for 35 years and there was no question that stumped him. There are five stops during the two hour tour so you aren't just rubber necking from the bus.

There were 5 of us ( 3 adults 2 teenagers) everyone was happy throughout would totally recommend... not my first trip to Yosemite but first time doing this ... so glad I did ... great historical overview and absolutely perfect for people who like taking photos ... we stopped four times ... the perfect stops in the park $38 and worth it. Book early as it sells out. Can’t believe didn’t do before now. Bus at Yosemite valley lodge ... lots of food options so we got there at 8.45am had breakfast ( lots of choice ) then got on 10am tour ... need to be at bus at 9.50am at the latest
