The cost is $108 for adults, $98 for seniors (62+) and $54 for children (under 12). We go to Glacier Point and Yosemite Valley. The tour lasts about 9 hours and we pick up from the motels in the towns of Mariposa and El Portal. There are a number of good motels in both Mariposa and El Portal. You will want to spend at least 2-3 days in Yosemite and more if you have the time.
