What people are saying about San Francisco

The only hiccup was understanding pickup time, as we had one msg with 6.20 and all the others said 5.50!! We were picked up at exactly 6.20am. Driver Roman was welcoming and very entertaining. Gave lots of information all along the way into Yosemite. Quick stop in a supermarket in Oakdale to buy breakfast and lunch. The first stop was great, but literally down to the Sequoia and back up the steep hill. Not a lot of time to take it all in, but this is so we could see as much as possible in the day. Stopped at several fabulous view points and later had time to walk and take in the atmosphere of the park. A fabulous time and the journey was worth it. Stopped for food on the way back too. Very full day. Thanks Roman

We did this day trip from San Francisco and it was the highlight of our time there in the city. It's a long day but totally worth it to see the iconic views of Yosemite. The guide Ben was really friendly and knowledgable, not just about the National Park but also the surrounding areas in California too. Had enough time to see the best bits when down in the valley - don't bother stopping to get food at the Yosemite Lodge as it wastes time, just bring a packed lunch to eat on the bus. One of the best days we had in our trip across the States.

This was one of the best experience for us in SF. The trip was well arranged and Denese is such an amazing tour guide, she is very knowledgable, funny and witty. There was no food or water provided (water would have been good), but we had dedicated stops. We also heard from one of the passengers that their cab was also arranged when they had last minute change in pickup point. I would definitely recommend this, worth the price and time.

For who want to have a short glimpse in Yosemite Park, this tour is perfect. Our guide Ross was great! He was funny and able to combine jokes with interesting information regarding the area and history. He did everything with a good balance. Thanks to him our long trip was really enjoyable. I was in doubt to go or not due the long distance from SF and now I can say that I am happy of my choice.

Great tour, loved hanging with our guide Ben for the day
