I did the 1 day tour to Yosemite National Park. It was a well timetabled schedule, taking regular pit stops on the way there and back to break up the trip. At the park, we stop at some major landmarks before allowing 2-3 hours of free time to do exploring ourselves.
Our tour guide Jim was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and took a personal interest in making sure that everyone had a good time. Being a local, he was able to impart a good amount of knowledge about Yosemite and the San Francisco area in general.
I suffer from motion sickness and Jim allowed me to sit at the front so that I wouldn't feel so sick.
The only downside of the tour was that the air conditioning wasn't working properly so it did get very hot on the bus. Morale was a little low as a result but Jim tried his best to keep out spirits up. I'm sure he was hot too!
Yosemite is a beautiful place worth visiting. It was a fantastic day out largely due to Jim! Thanks Jim!!! More
