We had a fantastic 2 days on this Tour. James, the driver and Guide, was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to adapt to any needs or requests made by members of the Group. There were several stops on the 4 hour journey each way and always a chance to stock up for the next food break. Yosemite was awesome. Blown away by the incredible scenery. Mountains, cascading waterfalls, rivers, rocks, forests and meadows. Simply awesome. On the first day, we hiked to see the last remaining sequoia trees and made several spectacular viewing stops. We walked to Lower Yosemite Falls. We stayed overnight at Cedar Lodge. The restaurant was busy and was mainly fast food, but the meals were very hot and tasty. The rooms are clean but very dated indeed. But we were exhausted and just glad of a comfortable bed to rest our weary bodies. On Day 2, we were given the freedom to choose from a variety of options, which was neat. We bagged for the Mist Trail. This was an up and down hike to the bridge and then steeper and eventually actual steps right up to the top of the beautiful waterfall. The whole hike was amazing, with incredible views and fast flowing river. The rainbows in the spray mist were lovely. Again by the time we got back to the car park, we were ready for lunch and a well deserved rest. Finally, we hiked back to Ahwahnee Hotel. On the way we saw and got photos of a small brown bear. Very exciting. To complete the trip, we stopped to see 2 climbers high up on El Capitan. Wow. There were a group of guys watching their ascent through fixed binoculars and zoom lens cameras, so we got a great view with them. Then it was back to San Francisco. A immensely memorable 2 days. Thoroughly recommend!

This review is late and for that I apologize, I went on the 2 day tour (9th &10th of May) to Yosemite National Park with my friend and Lana was our tour guide she was great and was very knowledgeable about the different areas that we saw and the whole park in general, she was able to answer any questions me or my friend may have had with ease, I would highly recommend this tour if you are thinking about doing as you see alot and are free to roam around the park by yourself. Accomodation is provided for the night and we stayed in a roadside motel which was very nice. Thank you for an enjoyable experience.

If you are like me and in between renting a car and driving to the Yosemite or this trip... especially solo travelers.... just click book now! This was all around a perfect trip!

Our tour guild, Jill, did a fantastic job of showing us all "the spots" of the park and she knew the place like the back of her hand! We saw a lot of places, I probably would have never found on my own and they were the ones with the best views. (Jill was also a great road trip DJ)

The tour was a mix of solo travelers, couples, and families, and once I entered the van at pick up, I never stopped smiling! Being a solo traveler, I felt very welcomed!

For lodging, I stayed at Cedar Lodge which was just a bit outside the park. Nothing fancy, but a solid place to rest after a long, long day! If I was to do this again, I probably woud have chosen to stay in-park just to have the experience of seeing the Yosemite at night.

Purchased this trip for my parents as my birthday present for them. We opted for a nature trip and Yosemite National Park did not disappoint. Its views and picturesque landscapes were so magical we could just stare at it the whole day. Considering the physical aspect of the trip, we decided to do a little hike to reach the lower part of the Yosemite Falls. My personal favorite was when we walked around the Meadows. It gave us a perfect view of the Half Dome, El Capitan, and a view of Bridalveil falls from afar. This tour wouldn’t have been enjoyable if it wasn’t for our tour guide, Lana. She was very friendly and made our trip so smooth — on top of that, her playlist was perfect for such a roadtrip like this. She also patiently gave us directions on how to walk around the village independently. Definitely would be doing this again next time but with the challenge of hiking the more difficult trails lol!

This trip was on our bucket list and what a check off it was!
Our guide Wes went above and beyond to make our experience memorable.
He pushed us a little on our first hike to see what we could handle and the second one was a bit harder but so worth it! The views of this spectacular park were amazing. Wes was very knowledgeable and helpful.
We highly recommend this tour!

Definitely a very incredible adventure with Chris! The trip to Yosemite would not be the same without him - very informative, he shared a lot of knowledge with us throughout the ride from SF to Yosemite. We learnt a lot about Yomesite as well! Chris was real and fun and he made all of us feel inclusive (we had young, old, Asians, Europeans) like we are all friends. We covered all the main sites in Yosemite which is breathtaking! Chris gave us advice on how we can plan our day are Yosemite based on our interest and "fitness" level as well which was been helpful! Overall, a very enthusiastic guide and an unforgettable 2 days at Yosemite!

Yosemite needs no introduction or explanation. It's a natural wonder. Our guide, Leo, completed the experience. During our drive to Yosemite he described to us the history behind San Francisco. He told ud about the gold rush, giving us anecdotes and details that were so interesting, even our teenagers were hooked. Once in Yosemite, he explained to us all about the geography of the park, as well as other interesting anecdotes and bits of information. He was knowledgeable about everything but never overwhelming. He offered options for activities, and everyone in our group got to do what they wanted. We were in the best of hands with Leo. He rounded our experience to one of learning, of fun, and adventure. We will not forget our experience.
THANK YOU SO MUCH,
Laura, Alex, Alex Jr, DIEGO, & Marco

My trip started from San Fransisco and we(My Husband& Myself) headed towards the Giant Sequoia Nattional forest to take a glance at the largest tree on earth - General Sherman.It were taken a back with it's huge trunk and I thought for a sec if that's a trunk or a Alien Foot..lol.. and the large tall& heavy trees were so good to watch and a silent walk in the woods would definitely be a worth doing. There is some essence of Fragrance in the woods that will take anyone's hearts away .

Our trip that day afternoon started to yosimite National park. I don't exactly remember how many hours was the drive. but that was a long 3-4 hour drive . half of the way was high way and the other half was riding up the hill. we weren't sure if we are on an elevation of what altitude neither can look out as we went during the winter in the month of November when the day was short and sun lights falls soon by 5. we finally reached the hotel near fish camp Narrow Gauge Inn. I would rate this hotel 4 as this place was quite and was perfect for a 1/2 night stay for . this was located at the right place. they served a decent break fast and we headed towards some of the beautiful scenarios to watch in Yosemite. as that was winter we could not get to treck near to falls . but the breathtaking views of Yosemite have taken our looks. we just did a one day camp in Yosemite. but if any one is travelling during summer one can visit the place at a very slow pace enjoying the nature for three days.

I would definitely recommend this trip, we had a fantastic 2 days with Lisa, and will remember forever. Since I first saw Ansell Adams photos 20+ years ago, I have wanted to visit Yosemite, and it didn't disappoint. This 2 day tour is perfect, on Day 1 Lisa drove us to all the "highlights", showing off plenty of awe-inspiring views to marvel at. Day 2 is technically a "free" day, but everyone wanted to hike so Lisa led us from Half Dome village up to the top of Vernal Falls (and beyond for some!). One of those truly satisfying experiences in life! Lisa created a really lovely atmosphere amongst 6 couples and a lone traveller who had never met before, and by the end of Day 2 there was a perfect group dynamic going on, all thanks to her. Thank you!!

I went on the 2 day trip from San Francisco to Yosemite. It was a group of 11 of us, a nice under bearing number!
Our guide from incredible adventures was Lisa...wonderful, excitable, full of life and fun! She was great, a brilliant driver on the long winding mountain roads and was full of facts about Yosemite and Karl-the San Francisco fog 😆
The trip itself-wow! If the option is drive or hike...HIKE! It’s exhausting but 100%worth it. The views are awe inspiring!
I stayed at the dome village tent lodge which was great!
Highly recommend this trip!
