For people who are visiting that park without the intention of scaling any of the mountains, the floor tour is highly recommended. the guides divulge great information of the valley and also stop at excellent locations offering the best panoramic views.

Park Ranger was informative and the tour in an open tram was terrific on a sunny bright day. Too many cars crowed on the roads led to frustration of park ranger when stopping, understandably.

Follow the instructions you get when you book the tour. Getting to the meeting spot early, sunscreen, drinks/ snacks hats. The buses are open topped, so if you're going in the afternoon, you'll be suffering if you don't have a hat and sunscreen. The buses...More

I took the train and bus so I'm unable to reply.
We will be driving from vegas to yosemite for a 2 nights stay in yosemite, we are very interested in the Yosemite Valley Floor Tour, but I'm not sure if I should book it the same day of arrival say by 3:00pm or let it be the next morning, to give us a slake to check in our accommodation and rest a while from the long drive
