This trip was amazing! Our driver Parker was just fantastic! Very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. He was as happy at the end of the long day as he was at 620 am. Yosemite was spectacular. Managed a swim in the river cold but refreshing! Cool Destinations please pass on our thanks to Parker as he is a credit to your team.

This was an amazing introduction to Yosemite park. The ride to and from is 8 hours long with only three hours at the park, but for someone who hasn't been there it's enough to appreciate the beauty of nature. We had a driver and a guide who were both great and the bus we rode in was big and comfortable. I recommend this trip if you have the time.

Alex was the best guide. Very helpful, funny, and professional. We enjoyed it a lot. Only thing I would suggest is to have cell phone charging outlets on the bus. The driver was very good as well.

Excellent tour, quite a long day. I found it too hot (106F 35C) to do as much hiking as I would have liked but they're the risks of September. Tour guide, Joseph is a very friendly helpful guy, hugely knowledgeable about California. Driver Jason was quietly competant, there is one stretch of mountain road which is a series of switchbacks, something to consider if you're thinking of self drive. Scenery is spectacular and some of the tour saw a bear with her cubs. Regarding the drive, the switchback section will be tough for anyone prone to motion sickness, best ask the guide where is best seat to minimise effect.

Such an amazing experience, Jason was a perfect driver very comfortable ride! And Joseph our guide was incredible, his knowledge of not only Yosemite but every little town on the way to the park from San Francisco was outstanding. There was never a dull moment and the park was stunning as to be expected. We even saw some black bears, deer and a bobcat! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is thinking about it!
