Thanks for your kind words about the tour. We think the fall is a beautiful time to be in Yosemite and the park is less crowded than normal. You're right about the waterfalls being at their best in the spring. Take care and travel safe!

If you just have a day to spare, this is a great tour to book. Timely pick up and sufficient stops in between. Our driver and guide Phil was extremely passionate to show us the best. We got adequate time to visit all the tourist areas and extra time to spot some bears as well
