We had a wonderful time on this tour. We were picked up right in front of our hotel and were chauffeured throughout the tour in a van by our excellent tour guide Parker. While driving he had lots of information about San Fran and the other towns we drove through to get to Yosemite. The BEST way to get there is by someone else driving! The tours were great and you could do them at your own pace since everyone is at a different pace for hiking. You hit the big highlights of the park-great way to do it since Yosemite is very big. The Cedar Lodge is a very nice place to stay, it is dated but that doesn't matter in the least. It is very clean and very comfortable, folks there are very friendly, great pool and the food at the diner/bar on the property is very good. I felt like I went back in time to 1982 and it was GREAT! Plenty of stops to use the restroom, get water, snacks, etc. Don't wonder anymore if you should book this, just do it. And ask if you can get Parker as your guide!!!!

This was so cool! Yosemite is amazing, and the guide was so sweet and helpful. The hotel was very nice as well. We got to see the most beautiful nature I’ve ever seen and with the guide to help/inform we got one of the best nature experiences we’ve ever seen. Would definitely recommend!

The trip was excellently planned, with time for group activities and free time to explore. We were able to see many things in only a couple of days. I would certainly recommend it. Our tour guide, Ron, was the best! Dropped one star, as I think the overall cost was quite high.
