Reasons I loved it:

- Perfect for all fitness/ability levels
I was a bit worried we'd just be speeding around taking quick pictures at key sights, but that wasn't the case! We had plenty of time for pictures, but also for hikes (if you chose), and solo wandering through the valley - it never felt like we were rushing. The hikes were between 2 - 4 hours long. They're completely optional but I highly recommend doing them if you're able as the views were so beautiful! If you're not able to hike, you can have free time to take in the sights or visit the museums.

- Mixed ages and multinational group
* The group size is limited to 16 so you get chatting to everyone and can eat meals together, if you choose. Our groups had couples, a mother and daughter, as well as solo travellers from all over the world!

- Awesome guide
Our guide Jill was fantastic. She was super knowledgeable about the area and really worked to make sure everyone got exactly the experience they wanted, whether that was long hikes, gentle trails, or slow-paced sight seeing. She was always sunny and approachable and made the group feel like a little family from the get go! She also played great chill road trip music in the van.

- Comfortable accommodation
My tip would be that there's not much difference between the Cedar Lodge and the more expensive Yosemite Lode. The latter is located in the valley so you can walk to breakfast, but Cedar Lodge is in a really beautiful location too and the tour guide takes you to breakfast in the bus so it's very easy! I suggest you save your money and spend it on snacks instead!

Title says it all. Except we never saw any bears - they were all at the Folsom St fair I believe? Jill our guide took us on some amazing hikes !

Overall a fantastic experience!
We had Daniel as our guide and he was honestly brilliant. He had been to Yosemite a fair few times and knew all the good spots. Despite having been here before, he was always excited about sights and made it a really fun and special trip. Thanks again Daniel!

The scenery in the park is absolutely breathtaking.The mountains...Il Kspitan were not disappointing. Some of the hikes are a little strenuous but doable. We booked through Incredible Adventures and the tour guide Daniel was professional yet companiable and kept us entertained.We stayed in the Cedar Lodge motel outside the park.The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. I highly recommend this tour and only wish there was a 3 day option.

Our guide was friendly and informative. I was using a cane for a bad knee and she showed me every consideration.

This trip is definitely worth it. Yosemite is stunning and the itinerary allowed two full days of sightseeing and hiking. We were given plenty of information on options for hikes within the Valley. Our guide Matt was knowledgeable, pleasant and a safe, smooth driver. An added bonus was the playlist in the van (it wasn't too loud though). Passengers with hearing problems or difficulty understanding English would be better sitting near the front as there's no microphone for the commentary. Take plenty of water if it's hot as some of the stops of day 1 have no running water

I had an amazing magical tour to Yosemite national park with an incredible tour guide. Jill was so amazing from the start through out the tour. So helpful. Hiking was the best. Cedar lodge was not bad only that we had no wifi and network is so terrible
