So many memories made in one day! James, our excellent tour guide, was determined to show us as many of Yosemite’s wonders as possible in one day, and he succeeded beautifully. Thanks, James, for a day we’ll never forget!

Good tour but van not so great.
Gilly_M
, Jun 2022
Tour was good and enjoyable. Guide James was really entertaining and friendly. The van was hot even with the fan on and a bit cramped to be honest with 10 people in it. Lots of room for bags etc at the back but less seat room. The windows also had no smoking stickers stuck on which spoilt the view at times.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for your input. Checked out the vehicle the AC seems to be working fine. Not sure if the guide was asked to adjust the AC. There is also a separate switch to increase the AC levels for the back. Moving the No smoking signs to improve the pictures taken from the van would be better and we will do that.

I don't care for forced reviews in order to submit my rating only. The experience and our guide Laura were great and I would do it again but you should allow me to rate without further comment.

The perfect day trip around Yosemite!

Well what an amazing day we had! Daniel, our tour guide, was exceptional & is honestly like a walking encyclopaedia he had so much knowledge!! He picked us up from Tenaya Lodge, where we were staying, and took us along with another couple to the park. From start to finish everything was fantastic! Daniel took us to so many beautiful view points & waterfalls, and so much more. He detoured off the route and showed us hidden treasures too! Car was super comfortable and along the way Daniel told us so many incredible stories of his life on the ranch, and the Yosemite park, it was so interesting and kept the short journeys so entertaining! We enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch which was delicious and plenty for our day exploring. I would 100% recommend this tour & to make your visit even more special, make a special request to have Daniel!!! You will not be disappointed!

Had an amazing time at Yosemite!

Laura is a very wonderful tour guide! Highly satisfying experience i had for my first time to Yosemite, let alone a solo trip. We all met on time, staff was very accurate and made sure the plan to meet accurately and timely, Especially with how the signal could be in the the area. I met another traveler too in our group and had a blast. Went to iconic spots and more, had an amazing lunch (thank you so much for the adorable lunch bag souvenir!), and learned so much more history and how special this national park is. Very friendly and sweet, loved the stories and facts, as well as the sweets. Thank you for offering this tour! I really appreciate how you guys are willing to pick up and drop off at various locations, despite the drive time. The weather was perfect that day. I would definitely come back and do it again!

Yosemite eith Super Guide Mick.
Marjorie_S
, Mar 2022
Being able to see so much in one day. Mick was a fabulous guide and paced the day very well. The beauty of the park was spectacular, and we did not feel rushed or pressured. Our tour companions were very friendly and easy to be with. The weather was spectacular and there was water on all the falls. We enjoyed it much more than if we had done it without a guide. Thank you.

We paid for the “luxury” experience, but it wasn’t. I feel like I was robbed of $810! This was a basic tour. Our tour guide, Richard was great! But, aside from Richard, the tour was pretty basic. Lunch wasn’t great. Not entirely worth $810 for three people. It should have cost $500 at most.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Just the cost of Jeep Tour is more then $ 500. There is a company here who rents Jeeps for $ 475 for 4 hours and you have to drive it yourself. Our Tour includes the guide and gas and insurance and lunches and park fees and a small gratuity for the guide. Sorry you did not have a good experience, hopefully you visit again and we can make it right for you.

A great way to see Yosemite

Having Laura as our guide was an amazing way to see Yosemite. The stories and tid bits of details gave another dimension to our experience. We enjoyed every minute and learnt so much. Even though we couldn’t enjoy a sit down lunch at the Ahwahnee Hotel because of the Covid restrictions, the packed lunch provided was super delicious and we could sit in the hotel and enjoy the ambience. Laura was a hoot and such enjoyable company! Highly recommended!!
