    Had fun. Guide had stories and facts all around. Had plenty of time at each stop. Glacier Point was open when I went and it was unreal.

    Prepare for a full day out of San Francisco for a wonderful day visiting what is a beautiful area.
    Victor (His words "a taco) was our driver and tour guide. We have travelled on many day tours over the world and we put this at the top with his candor, effortless lilt of interesting facts, his jokes, historical knowledge of the area and a conversation about our collective responsibility for all parks including Yosemite National Park and life in general.

    I highly recommend this tour. Come prepared with layers as the walk to the giant trees raises the body temperature. The 2.58 miles round walk to the giant Sequorias was well well well! worth the walk. Congratulations Victor and thank you to the other people on board. We talked to many and really glued as a group.

    An absolutely amazing day trip to Yosemite! The bus ride takes a while but it is so worth it! Noah, our tour guide, was fantastic. He ensured our comfort and safety throughout the day and was always on hand to answer any questions and offer guidance. He went above and beyond and it really made the whole experience. We were given 3 hours free time in the park, and managed to complete one of the more technical hikes to see the waterfall. So the time allotted is more than enough! If you get the chance to do this tour, do it! Absolutely 10/10.

    What an incredible 2-Day adventure!! Jud was our guide, host, trip conversationalist , and intermittent comedy relief! Even as local SF residents, Jud shared some very insightful commentary about the city and region. We made stops along the way checking to ensure each passenger was comfortable throughout the trip. Once we reached Yosemite, Jud took us all out on hikes and shared his knowledge and experience of the park and stories along the way. We were encouraged by Jud to watch the movie Free Solo which we did immediately when we got home :). Jud ensured each individual party had what they needed including checking us all into our rooms without any hassle. We had a very entertaining group and Jud made sure everyone enjoyed the experience -- We highly recommend using Incredible Adventures for your next Bay Area excursion and try and make a request for Jud - he'll absolutely make the trip an incredible experience!

    I had a wonderful time on this trip. The pickup from the Hilton Hotel was easy. The bus was very comfortable. The driver was fantastic because throughout the drive he provided historical information about various landmarks. The driver also did a great job on the tour of Yosemite. We pretty much saw 80% of the park in 1 day. Overall, it was a memorable trip.

    We had an amazing time on this tour. It is so nice to kick back and let someone else do the driving so both me and my husband were able to enjoy the most incredible scenery in our lives! Snowshoe John was amazing with his Yosemite experience and history ❤️

    We have visited many of the National Parks, but Yosemite is the king of parks. We visited in early May because after researching online it was suggested that May was a great time to visit before the crowds of summer. That turned out not to be the case at all. The first problem was that despite the thousands of visitors, there were no Park Rangers at the entrance collecting fees or passing out the park newsletter or brochures. National Parks are not well funded so we didn't understand why they would pass up an opportunity with so many paying customers. Also, if we had received the newsletter which always lists closing or delay areas, we would have turned around and left. Our plan was to visit the Valley then drive across and exit the Lee Vining East entrance. Our plan was to spend the night in Mammoth Lakes then on to Utah. When we arrived at Bridal Veil Falls and then the Valley, my husband went to the visitor center there and was told the road across the Park to Lee Vining was closed.

    Construction at the tunnel paused our progress for almost 40 minutes while they let one side of the traffic through and held the other side. A sign warned people to stay in their vehicles but quite a few people paid no attention to the sign and the road worker had to continuously chase people back into their vehicles. We could see the line of vehicles behind us getting longer and longer.

    We stopped at the Gift Shop, Market and Restaurant to find something to eat. The Gift Shop and Restaurant were closed and only open certain hours for each meal. Again, had we had a brochure or newsletter, we would have been aware of that. The entire area was packed with tourists, buses and RV's. Parking was very limited.

    We did eventually make it to the Valley and got a photo of El Capitan. There was no room to park anywhere so we could only view it from the road. We turned back to exit the park which was another nightmare of lines of vehicles trying to do the same thing. I have a beautiful video of Bridal Veil Falls but was unable to download it here.

    If May is the slow month for Yosemite, I would hate to see what it's like in summer.

    One of the best private tours I’ve done in my life. Pablo was an excellent driver and a fantastic tour guide for me and my family. We were slightly late for the trip but he was very accommodating and adjusted the itinerary according to our liking. He brought us beverages and snacks and constantly updated us about Yosemite and its history. He is very knowledgeable and also an amazing photographer. I would definitely recommend taking this private tour to Yosemite!

    Super inspiring day out with a wonderful guide. We made it to seven of the ten waterfalls. The other three would have been too much for my four and eight year olds. Seems like the timing was perfect for the full flow experience. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

    Alexis is very knowledgeable about Yosemite and is also very personable. We had a fantastic time in the park and were able to see some of the more popular sites, including El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls, Yosemite Falls and more. One tip: it's a long drive from Fresno, so be sure to eat a healthy breakfast and pack snacks and water.

    This company and the guides know what they are going and have been running this company for around 20 years. John is excellent and informs you about everything that is involved, if you’re uncertain, he will encourage you and put you at ease. I learned a lot from hiking with him. I can’t wait to return and book another trip with these guys
