If you've never been to Yosemite, GO! - Went to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Boy, did I make a really good call! Our driver, Steven, was the best we could have asked for. The group we were with was fun & Steven made that even more enjoyable. He showed us the best spots for photographs & jumped in to assist with pics for everyone. What an experience! The waterfalls, the mountains, the sequoias. And you could tell that Steven really loves Yosemite. And now, so do we! Thanks, Steven, for making our trip truly exceptional.

Unforgettable experience at Yosemite - Our tour guy “Kurt” ensured that our experience was unforgettable. He was very communicative, always courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, professional and energetic. The pick up at our hotel was very convenient. The bus was in great condition. The highlight of the date was the sequoias hike. I would definitely recommend this tour.

AMAZING!! - What a great day!! Our tour guide Kurt was just amazing!! From beginning to end one of the best tours I have ever been on. I always tend to feel rushed on many tours, but Kurt allowed us time to enjoy each stop and take it all in. Yosemite is MAJESTIC and so glad I joined this tour. Thanks again, Kurt!
