This is our second visit to the park and this time, with 2 little ones. They are still too young to do serious hikes especially in July heat, so we decided to put our names down on a waiting list for 10:00 tour on the day and managed to get on ok. All of us thoroughly enjoyed not only the... More

Great overview tour of the valley floor led by one of the Park's Rangers. Tour covers not only the physical formations of the park, but gives some background information on how Yosemite became a National Park and some events that have happened in the Park over the years. Please note that this is an open air tram. If visiting in... More

If you don't like to walk, just like us, but want to see a maximum of the area, we can recommend you this tour. It is a nice way of visiting with explanations given by a ranger and with a few extraordinary stops! This is also ideal to do with kids.

We traveled to Yosemite for our wedding anniversary. We had been to Yosemite before and had wanted to climb half dome but didn't get the chance. This trip before our half dome hike we took the valley floor tour, it was a great way to get the history of the area and see the entire valley floor. Our tour guide... More

This is the most stunning place in the word in my opinion, if there is anywhere that tops it I need to see it. there is a shuttle which takes you across the valley floor and links all the major sights. Don't take my word for it just go.

A guided tour on an open air tram. The ranger who lead the tour was a young women who loved what she did and it showed in her presentation. We learned about the history, great photo taking and the two hours went very quickly, much too fast. Remember this was a tour not a hike. I would suggest doing the... More

I was lucky enough to ride the Green Dragon (tram tour) before it was unbearably hot in the valley. Ranger Rachel was awesome! She had the perfect balance of history and humor to keep us entertained while teaching us a lot about Yosemite.

We only had a day to visit Yosemite and, after taking the YART, ended up in the park during the biggest downpour I think I've ever seen. And it didn't stop! I was gutted and thought we'd be stuck killing time in the small museum and hotel until our bus back but, luckily one of the staff suggested this tour.... More

We had the last tour of the day at 3 pm and so we had a bus which was nice for the comfort and warmth, but the bus driver's narration was a bit preachy at times. He prattled on about how to easily fix the water crisis by moving all dams (at a cost of a couple of billion dollars)... More

It was alright but we booked it the 3 day there. We had already visited the stops. For this reason it was on the boring side.
