Average 4.02 out of 5 stars based on 390 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor.
It was a great day out trip.
Although journey is long, it's worth while to see El Capitan's view.
Driver was very accommodative and explains details of background and Thank you to him!
My husband and I visit San Francisco for our anniversary, we took 2 tours with Gray Line /Cool Destinations company . From the first day I started to plan the trip with Michael at the office located in Union Square to the 2 tour guys Danilo and Antonio it was a perfect vacation. There hospitality and understanding of the tours and information made the trip an awesome and memorable one. They all were pleasant , respectful and knowledgeable . I would recommend this company 100% ... You really can appreciate time well spent especially if you are visiting for the first time and are not sure of a lot of things. They make it easy for you to relax and enjoy .
The tour guide was great, we only had four hours in Yosemite which was enough to go on one walk. The time in the bus to and from is worth it to see the beauty of the national park.
It is a long drive to Yosemite Park from San Francisco. We were with the Gray Line service. The entire tour covered about 600 miles in a day I. E. to and fro. But still it was worth it!
