Here’s what our happy customers say about Discover Yosemite Tours:
No way could you see Yosemite in one day better than on this tour. Marsha picked us up at Tenaya Lodge at 7:30 am and gave us history and stories all day while driving the winding roads of the park. She knew all the places to stop, told us where to take the best pictures (and they are spectacular) and gave us just the right amount of time at each magnificent vista. It was a gorgeous day full of gorgeous sights. Loved the visit to the Majestic and Big Tree hotels as well and the history of behind them we would never have known without her. Back at the lodge at 5:30 without the stress of driving and parking all day. It is worth every penny to do Yosemite this way.
Probably the most amazing tour I have ever been on. We had Ranger Ralph as our tour guide and his witty stories and amazing Yosemite experience made the tour such fun and interesting.
I wish there were 6 stars available for this company, I cannot recommend them enough.
If you are trying to Yosemite on your own like we were, you will not regret using this tour company.
My wife and I toured with Discover Yosemite and Guide, Marsha, last week. I’d been to Yosemite twice before and thought I’d seen it all, but this was my wife’s first trip and I really wanted to leave the driving to someone else, especially having experienced the traffic in the Yosemite Valley. Marsha was an outstanding guide throughout the 10 hour tour that day. I learned so many facts about Yosemite’s history and her knowledge of every kind of tree and plant was exceptional. It was also evident that she loves the Park. She left ample time to exit the bus and stretch our legs. No hiking was necessary. Her knowledge of local history was unparalleled. From watching climbers on El Capitan, to enjoying the views at Glacier Point, it was a day packed with awesomeness morning till evening. Thank you Marsha for your sense of humor, your patience, and your sharing.
I’ll say this about the pricing for this tour. It’s not cheap and we’ve all paid a high price and been ripped off before. Not the case here. It’s California, folks. Everything is expensive here. But with Discover Yosemite, we certainly feel that there was a lot of value here for the dollar. Comfortable clothing with walking footwear recommended. Take a jacket (even if it’s warm in the valley, higher elevations can be cold and windy) Lunch, snacks, and soft drinks were provided and were tasty! Don’t forget some kind of camera. Be respectful and pay attention to the Guide. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this tour.
Great Way to See the Highlights of Yosemite
We nearly didn’t take the tour because it is quite expensive an we had our own car. However, we were so glad that we did as I don’t think we would have seen so much or enjoyed our day the way we did with Ranger Ralph. Having someone who knows the park so well is a real bonus on a trip like this and we were not disappointed. Ralph took us to some great viewing places and gave us time to explore and digest the beauty of the area. He had lots of stories and facts to keep us entertained during the drive and it was a lot more relaxing than trying to find our own way and fighting for parking spots. Would definitely recommend this tour as the best way of seeing the park if your time is limited and you want a stress free experience. The lunch provided was delicious and another thing that we didn’t have to worry about. A really lovely day at Yosemite – Thank you.
One Word: Awesome!
Just spent a wonderful day with Glenn on the Discover Yosemite Tour. Friendly, informative, courteous. We had a great time and so glad we booked the tour. There was no way we would have been able to see what we saw and do what we did by ourselves.
Thanks Glenn. Fantastic!!!
Avoid Traffic – Take a Bus Tour!
The Yosemite valley can become very congested…the beauty of the bus is that buses have their own travel lane once down in the valley; therefore you’re able to see all the amazing sites without the hassle of a LONG DRIVE and TRAFFIC JAMS. Your pass to the park is included in the fare as well as a boxed lunch option. The other perk, is that the buses in many locations also have better access to site entry points than you would if you tried to find a parking spot on your own…trust me…during the summer….good luck finding a parking spot. We found our tour guide to be VERY knowledgeable about the falls and local landmarks. Learning the history of what you’re seeing makes the trip all the more worth while. It also gives you the opportunity to discover where you would like to return the following day on your own. The Mariposa Grove (Giant Sequoias) section is closed currently until the fall of 2017 (estimated opening); but you could also book a Jeep tour with Sierra Jeep Tours to visit a private grove of sequoias. I would definitely recommend taking the Discover Yosemite tour!
