“Loved this tour. Great value.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

$66 for a family of 4 was one of the best value things we did. Great way to get orientated in the valet and see all the ain sights. Ranger Chris was well informed. Open air trailer was a great way for everyone on board to see everything..... But we had a beautiful sunny day.

“Great tour”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

You get to see and hear a lot about the Valley from a Park Ranger in an open air wagon. The cost was $25 when I went. We saw a black bear. Tunnel View was one of my favorite vista views.

“Gives you the basics”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We took this tour on our recent visit to Yosemite. This tour gives you a good base of knowlege to begin your stay in the park. It's an open air tram that takes you to various scenic stops and lookouts on the Valley floor. The guides give you interesting information and history about each stop and the park in general. They will answer any questions you might have. They try a little too hard to make it fun with blaring music and wanting you to sing along and gesture to YMCA.

“Nice and easy.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

If you just want to relax and get some history about Yosemite, this is a good alternative. We did it the last day and it was a pleasant way to end our trip. Not for children or teenagers - too slow and probably boring for them.

“Worth doing”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

With a place like Yosemite it is well worth doing this sort of tour, as it takes you to all the main sites and gives you information you wouldn't get without a good guide book. Our ranger Eric was fun and knowledgeable, and I especially liked his use of music along the tour.
