      Great experience!
      My parents were visiting the country for the first time and they thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Extranomical tours. Everything was communicated promptly and the itinerary was well paced ( slightly hectic, but, it’s a day tour to Yosemite so understandable). And Andy is a great tour guide! he explained everything well and we loved his energy! Highly recommended to anyone who doesn’t have their own transportation and wants a quick tour of Yosemite.

      Best Yosemite tour guide
      Best tour guide in SF! Highly recommended. Be ready to learn about the ecology, history, and geography of the area. He even brought us disposable ponchos to get near the fall and not get wet.

      A great day out!
      Such a great experience! Everything ran smoothly. Andy was a fantastic tour guide. He was energetic, informative, funny & patient. Not to mention a great photographer! He also provided rain ponchos which allowed us to get closer to the falls, such a great experience. Incredible day seeing Yosemite national park (lower falls, half dome & El Capitan) & giant sequoia trees. Really valuable experience thanks to Andy & a great driver. Got back in a timely manner.

      Yosemite Overnight Tour!
      I booked the 3-day Yosemite Overnight Tour with No Accommodation. On our way to Yosemite Valley, our tour guide was Rob and he was very passionate about Yosemite, sharing many historical details and experiences of Yosemite. Rob was very helpful with our luggage and gave us pointers on what to do for our stay in Yosemite. On our way back, our tour guide was Brad and he was very friendly. For anyone considering Extranomical's Yosemite Overnight tours - I would highly recommend it. You really want to stay in Yosemite for a few days to really appreciate all the sights and history of Yosemite. I did a 1-day trip years back and it was very rushed and tiring, and I did not really appreciate Yosemite because of that. I highly recommend taking the tour so you get to spend more time in the valley, and so that you don't have to make the tiring drive to Yosemite. For those that do go on the overnight tours, my biggest tips are: 1) make sure you travel light because the tour bus does not have much luggage storage room, 2) make sure you confirm the pickup time on your way to and back from Yosemite, especially the return trip because phone reception is really bad in the valley. Now why is this a 4-star instead of 5-star review? Originally I booked the overnight tour that included accommodation at Yosemite Valley Lodge but Extranomical couldn't get a room at the lodge, and they did not refund me until I threatened them. I was lucky to book a room on my own at Yosemite Valley Lodge, and booked Extranomical's no accommodation overnight tour as our transportation there. I was a bit nervous before our trip due to the initial poor experience, but after our trip I can say Extranomical is legit and their tour guides are well trained. I would likely book a tour again with them, keeping the above issues in mind when booking with them.

      A must do!
      Andy, our tour guide and Debbie our bus driver were amazing! We would highly recommend this tour especially if they are your tour guide and bus driver. Andy was so informative about the history of not only Yosemite but surrounding areas very caring and entertaining on the bus ride. Andy also brought disposable rain ponchos so that you can get super close to the waterfalls.

      Good Stuff
      Our guide Andy and our driver Glenda were great. They know how to do their job and seem to love it. The tour gives us a lot to explore with time to spare and/or spend. The vehicle used could be improved by adding some space to store our things on the bus. I also really all the stops we made as every stop was nice and not pricy.

      Great day at Yosemite, with our great driver Glenda and tour guide Andy 🎈
      The one day program to Yosemite was well-thought with enough breaks in between even though I expected it to be quite intensive. There were people of all ages and I think everyone was keeping up just fine :) Our driver Glenda and our tour guide Andy were the jolliest people! Andy always walked us through everything, gave us enough trivia knowledge about California for a lifetime, and were really attentive to our needs. We saw some of the main attractions of Yosemite. Of course, if you have the time, you should spend more time there but if you don’t have time, this tour (leaving from San Francisco) was a good solution!

      Yosemite in a Day
      Wonderful trip that allows you to see all the important points in Yosemite. David was a wonderful guide. You drive to several stops in Yosemite. The only required hiking is to see the redwoods. The bus is very very hot. Plan accordingly and dress in removable layers.

      Great time at Yosemite Valley and Tuolomne Grove
      Had an amazing time on this trip at Yosemite Valley! The pace is just right for my parents, and we got to see the awesome Sequoias at Tuolomne Grove too. I have to praise Andy Howse our amazing guide for bringing us to a secret spot near the lower Yosemite Falls for a close up photo op right in front of the waterfall. He even had ponchos prepared for us to prevent us from getting wet. Really enjoyed the close up experience.

      Yosemite and Giant Sequoias in a Day from SF
      Gino was a friendly and efficient tour leader and driver, who worked hard to make the trip the best possible experience for us all. He interspersed our journey with much interesting commentary - although his rather staccato and sometimes broken English was not always easy to follow. Apart from our 2 hours in the Yosemite Valley at lunchtime, we had breakfast and supper stops and adequate restroom stops en route, and a number of well-chosen photostops in the Yosemite Park. The Yosemite Falls were only a short walk from our midday stop in the park and, having followed Gino's advice to buy food for lunch at Trader Joe's at our breakfast stop, we enjoyed a picnic lunch beside the stream from the base of the falls. Perhaps trying to protect themselves in a litigious environment, Extranomical Tours made, it seems to me, far too much of the difficulties of the trek to the Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias. Although at a modest gradient in places, the trail seemed well surfaced and easy walking throughout. Nearer 80 than 70 years of age, a little overweight and without the habit of much walking, and with some tendency to breathlessness since Covid, I thought it wise to follow their advice for the uphill return, but, in so doing, I allowed myself too little time at the grove and found myself with far too much time to spare on my return, time that would have been better spent exploring and enjoying the grove. A long day with a very early start but well worth it.

      Amazing experience, well worth it
      The tour was great, a perfect choice for 1 full day. We were first time visitors to the US and it was well worth in terms of value, which set it apart from many other destinations and tours. Having David as our tour guide was the cherry on top! He went above and beyond in ensuring that Yosemite (perhaps once in a lifetime) consisted of an awesome experience.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Russian Street Steps tour guided by Michael. I was born in San Francisco and have lived here for over 45 years. I live in an adjacent neighborhood to Russian Hill and thought I knew Russian Hill, but through the tour, I discovered and learned the backstory of a couple of public parks, new streets, steps, and houses! You start off with beautiful views of the Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Bay Bridge, Salesforce Tower, and, of course, the beautiful bay. You also get a great workout climbing steps and hills!

    Tour was delayed for one and half hour
    The original itinerary when I booked the trip was included cross the Golden Gate Bridge and we didn’t
    I invited friends and they also booked, it was very embarrassed as they were also expecting to cross the bridge
    They should refund at least 30% of the cost
