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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    Our guide Victor was lovely! He made the day not only educational but fun. It was a long day well spent. Especially nice to stop off at the roadside “sons” fruit stand. Highly recommend!

    The guide is an absolute delight, delivering timely and very interesting facts about a whole range of things, and seems to have a great sense of the energy levels in the bus. The Yosemite water is brilliant!

    Our tour guide Juli picked us up with a wonderful smile and we boarded the small air con coach. She took us to all the highlights and much more. Her knowledge of Yosemite was fab and she had all the answers to any questions we threw at her. The lunch provided hit the spot.
    We were lucky to even see a Mother bear with her two cubs - Juli guided us incredibly well.
    If you book this trip you won’t regret it!

    A spectacular trip made even more special by Crossroads Tours guide, Daniel, a local man whose knowledge was exceptional. He made us feel really welcome and the stories he told were so informative and interesting. I would recommend Crossroad Tours to anyone. Thank you

    Great tour. Terrible experience with TripAdvisor and it’s partner Viator. Viator handled the local communications, and directions to pickup spot were poor, no street address, misleading business name. When I asked for clarification, got a rude text message in return. Neither Viator, nor TripAdvisor, have a way to comment on their service. Wonderfully hypocritical of them. They let us comment on everyone else, but you can’t talk to a person or send an email to customer service.

    The park is beautiful and amazing. Our guide, Mick, was great and very knowledgeable. It turned out to be a private tour for us. Overall a great experience.

    We walked the Mist Trail to the top of Navarra Falls with our boys aged 14 and 17. The view was stunning and the cool water streams at the top made a perfect lunch break before we decended on the John Muir Trail. The only down side to this walk is that there are quite a lot of people on this trail.

    Very disappointed. Hardly got to see anything only stopped three times. $1,200 down the drain. Nice driver but owners are extremely rude and unprofessional. Asked for partial discount since we hardly got to see anything but owner hung up on me. Poor customer service. Expensive tour. Not worth it. Look elsewhere.

    Great audio, but it did stick a few times and did not pick up so I had to restart the feed. It was informative and helpful and gave places to stop.

    I'm so glad we booked a full-day tour with Photo Safari Yosemite! Ethan was our very knowledgable guide and we got to see and learn so much about the Yosemite Valley. We had our two daughters with us (6 and 10) and our two dogs. Ethan took us to all the best spots and made sure we got the best photos. This was really a perfect choice for our family and we enjoyed every minute of it. Also, I'm so happy we got some epic family pics to cherish forever. Thanks so much Ethan!

    The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Daniel, made the trip fun, enjoyable, and memorable. Daniel took us everywhere we wanted to go and gave us the history of the Yosemite Valley. He is a lifelong resident and an excellent guide. Great job !!!!
