Great way to see the valley floor in style and comfort with great narration by knowledgeable drivers. Open air tram gives magnificent views of the towering valley walls, meadows, river and waterfalls.

I had fun on the tram, but I prefer walking myself around the Valley. The shuttle bus system also gets you to most of the same places, and for free, though you'll have to be more patient, and on busy days, pretend you are a...More

The two-hour, wheelchair accessible Yosemite Valley Floor Tour cost $25 per person and is well worth it. They take reservations and even in mid-September, making one is a good idea. Riders park at the Yosemite Lodge and pick up their tickets at the Activities Desk...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
