Excellent - It is a long day but well worth every second of it. Phil was a wonderful driver and guide. He has very knowledgeable, patient and definitely knew the in and out of the park. The sites were gorgeous. Getting to meet people from all over was a wonderful perk. The max people on the van was 15. It was the best tour we have ever done in the San Francisco Area.
Our small group trip to Yosemite was marvelous! Brian was our tour guide—and he was brilliant! Our trip was so wonderfully organized, we ended up having extra time at Yosemite! We got lucky going the day after Labor Day—almost no line to get into the park! On the drive to and from Yosemite, Brian had fascinating documentaries for us to watch! We were well informed before reaching the park! I recommend this tour highly!
Brian is a Champion !
Yosemite is a must see and Brian made it even better.
Great tour and highly recommended!
The whole trip going to and from a land unknown to many was awesome. Truly, one of those things you would always cherish and hopefully revisit it again. The trip was enjoyable since we were in a small group which in a sense not stressful. This was made possible by our tour guide and companion, Brian, who was all game and willing to share his knowledge of every aspect to which was very interesting. Cheers to a well managed trip. Time passes so quickly, that you feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
What a great day we had despite some mechanical issues. Brian our guide was just awesome . Very informative and attentive to the group while dealing with the van issues. Yosemite was beautiful with the waterfalls flowing great. We even got to see a bear as we were heading out and got a great photo to take home . Thanks Brian ... and really enjoyed my co_driver prime viewing position up front with you . Cheers
Bryan’s commitment.as guide and driver is wonderfull.
Small problems with the engine of the van: to be solved, dear Viator
Our tour guide Brian did an amazing job of showing us the best of Yosemite National Park. He was very informative and kept us entertained on the long drive there with films on the Parks makeup as well as the people who conquer its cliff faces. He knows the Park extremely well and goes out of his way to ensure you get those picture postcard photo memories. The autumn colours were beautiful this time of year.Thoroughly recommend this as a god taster of what Yosemite has to offer.
Loved this day trip to the Yosemite Valley with Best Bay Area Tours. Our guide Brian was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to show us all the sights and make the very most of the day. We made several photo stops plus two longer stops for hiking in the valley and seeing the Giant Sequoias. I also liked that we travelled in a 15 passenger bus. It made the travelling part so much more convenient than with the big buses. Can highly recommend this tour and company.
Our guide made sure we got to all the picture worthy site in the comfort of the van which was wonderfully for my senior parents. All and all, it was a very thoughtful and fun tour.
This full day tour gave us quite a bit of time at Yosemite to walk around as well as time at the Sequoia grove. Both were very nice sites, I enjoyed that the guide gave us freedom to walk around on our own or with your group. The walk up and down to the Sequoia grove was somewhat challenging, that should be kept in mind for people with any physical limitations. They allowed a stop along the way to get snacks/beverages, no meals are included so be sure to get plenty of food and drinks! Overall great trip and good value!
