Brian was amazing, he texted the night before of the tour to making sure we have the meeting place address, advised when booking that my family and I won’t be staying in SF area.. He knows his way around the park and know when to be at the place in the perfect timing to get good pics.. He was absolutely wonderful, O will highly recommend him!!! Thank you Brian!

Phil went above and beyond.We booked months in advance for a tour through Extranomical that unfortunately cancelled on us the day before the trip. Cool Destinations and Phil from the Best Bay Area Tour company pulled through with less than 24 hours notice! He was extremely personable, patient, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. He knows all of the best spots and trivia to go along with it.Thanks Phil!

Absolutely worth it doing this tour. Yosemite is magical and it's a great way to get the first glimpse! I wish I had more time but it still felt we had time for a couple of nice shorter hikes - so it was not "all day on the bus" sort of thing. We were very lucky to visit Giant Sequioas (not guaranteed in Winter due to possible snow) but this Winter it is very dry in CA. The travel time one way is about 4 hrs (including the food stop) - it went by very fast. Our guide and driver Mike was very good; he spent some time living in the part in the past and shared some interesting information about it.

Phil was a fantastic tour guide. We really enjoyed this tour. We had a small group which saved time and allowed us to visit more parts of the park. Would recommend to all.

Fantastic experience! One of the most impressive parks I have seen in my life! Our driver Phil was very knowledgeable and humourous! We had a fantastic time and learnt a lot! He made sure we not only did all the scheduled stops but also some additional for pictures! Great trip, I would highly recommend this experience!

Inam from Costa Rica and This is one of the best tours I have made in my life. Yosemite is so amazing by itself but Bryan makes it so much better with his deep knowledge of the park and perfect timing we got to see a lot of the most Iconic atractions in the park. I hightly recomend this tour.

Phil was a great guide. He showed us the best spots to take amazing pictures. I was disappointed that we couldn't see the sequoias due to the roads being iced over, but that's on me for booking the tour in the winter. He gave us a good amount of information and I was glad that he chose to play music and concentrate on driving while navigating the winding roads out of the park rather than talk to us.
