Our tour guide was Trish. She was well spoken and kept the group entertained. She was on time for pickup at all of our stops and she kept the group safe during our photo stops and the ride. We didn’t realize it was fire season in Yosemite as well. Trish was also very funny and

We had booked a full day tour from SFO to Yosemite National Park with Incredible Adventures. We were given a pick up point as our hotel was not on their route. 6.45 AM was the pick up time so we left our hotel around 6.00 am. We got our breakfast packed since it was too early

Attempted a one day trip to Yosemite National Park, conducted by Grayline and booked through Viator. This trip changed my impression about US being a man made marvel to that of a country with rich natural reserves. Well preserved natural park, pumping in loads of oxygen,

Yosemite is absolutely worth visiting but do not recommend Grayline. Booked a Grayline day trip to Yosemite through hotel. Had to pay hotel $35 cash, they arranged pickup and pay balance to office on the day. Was overcharged $10 as girl argued I had wrong price. I didn’t.

Dear jowells8, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your experience. I am sad to learn the tour was not entirely of your liking. However, I need to point our the correct procedures were followed by both our staff and our driver-guide. I deeply feel you did not feel totally comfortable during the tour, which is nothing but further from our intention. We hope you can trust us again in a near future!
