We took this tour, departing from Yosemite Valley Lodge. It took over 90 minutes to find a parking spot, so we missed our original tour time. Leave a LUDICROUS amount of time to find a parking spot if you are here at a busy time....More

I called the park in advance and booked a few tours. Try calling 209-372-0200. If you are going in prime season then you need to book early
