If you've never been to Yosemite, have only a day or so in the park, or are traveling with Seniors this is the best tour you can take in the Yosemite valley. We toured in November with snow on the ground and were inside a bus, it was warm and comfortable between stops. We toured with our 80-year-old mum and... More

This tour visits all the main sites and gives you a chance to get off the bus and take pictures. Bill Fontana gave a very interesting and entertaining talk. Well worth the cost.

For our tour, my wife and I were supposed to do the Glacier Point tour. However, a couple days earlier, she was notified that the Glacier Point tour was canceled due to snow. So, instead of that, we decided to do the Floor tour instead. The driver/guide was knowledgeable. He had a lot of information and it definitely was a... More

We purchased our tickets in advance on line. This is a very worthwhile tour to take and gives you an excellent idea of the layout and history of the valley. The rangers whom narrated the tour are very knowledgeable. It also gives you an idea of what you may want to go back and visit of a particular place or... More

We were in Yosemite Nat'l Park for 2 nights at the beginning of October, staying at Half Dome tents. We took the Valley Tour in order to get An overview of the whole park since that was the first time we had been there. I booked the tour on line and printed out my confirmation. Pls be aware that you... More

or just go to lodge and be patient waiting for openings. Sometime whole buses don't show and everyone gets on. The rangers who do these tours are knowledgeable and handpicked for their ability to connect with tourists and impart the wonder and history of the place. A great first stop.

After making the nerve wracking drive to the Yosemite valley, I was glad to be out from behind the wheel. The tram ride was just the respite my wife and I needed. This review pertains only to the open air tram ride. The tram is a great way to see the Yosemite valley. You can give the sights your full... More

Just an average bus tour of the valley that you can do in your car without the narration. In the fall/winter months you go in a bus instead of a open air tram with the bus driver doing the narration instead of a ranger. We got really lucky because the falls are usually dried up by this time of year...but... More

Even though we have taken the tour on previous visits, we always start each trip with another tour. It is a great introduction to the park and each Ranger/Guide puts a different spin on things.
