Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our family of 3 did a full day sightseeing tour in September 2019. Nicole was our guide and she was an absolute gem - she was friendly and knowledgeable and we loved listening to all her interesting stories!
    As it was our first visit to Yosemite this tour was absolutely perfect and took all the hard work and stress away - we told YSA what we were interested in seeing and they developed a suitable itinerary for us.
    Although the cost leans more on the expensive side (especially considering the low value of the Australian dollar when we visited) I still think it was so worth it and we would definitely use this tour provider again - my husband in particular said it was his favourite day by far in our 3 week vacation and he can’t wait to come back!

    This was a great trip I would highly recommend. Their equipment including the Suburban that transferred us was spotless and top of the line. Guide was very knowledgeable about the area. I was a challenging client to say the least and they did a great job.

    Formidable 2-day private tour of Yosemite with hotel accommodation

    I had limited time to visit Yosemite national park but after going through reviews of Yosemite Private Tours, I decided to go with this tour company. My dad and I had a fantastic time in Yosemite national Park and Mariposa grove of sequoias. It was a top-notch private tour experience and worth every bit of it…. Our tour guide (Leo) was very hospitable - so professional and knowledgeable about each and every location that we covered in Yosemite and Sierra Nevada. The entire process - right from pick-up at the hotel to the drive back was very seamless and pleasant. If you have limited time for Yosemite while staying in San Francisco, but still want to cover most of Yosemite, I would highly recommend this 2-day trip with the hotel option included.

    David led us on the ultimate combo fly fishing and hiking day through Yosemite park. From the first day coordinating over the phone i could tell how much of an incredible guide he would be. Park rules were complicated during covid and he did everything he could to get us in last minute. In the park, we went to multiple hiking and fishing spots on and off the beaten path. We were new to fly fishing and he made sure to teach us all the ropes, had awesome gear, and an A+ attitude. Could tell how much he loves Yosemite. David’s half day was the highlight of our entire trip, but he was kind enough to give us recommendations for our other two days at the park too!

    Proud to have met a new friend in David. Can’t wait to hang out again soon!
