My husband and I visit San Francisco for our anniversary, we took 2 tours with Gray Line /Viator company . From the first day I started to plan the trip with Michael at the office located in Union Square to the 2 tour guys Danilo and Antonio it was a perfect vacation. There hospitality and understanding of the tours and information made the trip an awesome and memorable one. They all were pleasant , respectful and knowledgeable . I would recommend this company 100% ... You really can appreciate time well spent especially if you are visiting for the first time and are not sure of a lot of things. They make it easy for you to relax and enjoy .

The tour guide was great, we only had four hours in Yosemite which was enough to go on one walk. The time in the bus to and from is worth it to see the beauty of the national park.

It is a long drive to Yosemite Park from San Francisco. We were with the Gray Line service. The entire tour covered about 600 miles in a day I. E. to and fro. But still it was worth it!

Highly recommended if you have a full day to spend in San Francisco. The scenery along the way was fantastic and made all the better by the coach driver, Chabli. Chabli gave good commentaries all along the route and into the national park. Stop at every "photo" opportunity that we could get and just enough time for us to take great photos. Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Safe driving too by Chabli.

100% recommend this tour, Yosemite is not to be missed it's so beautiful. I went on the 6th May trip and our tour guide was fantastic, really friendly and knowledgeable. Overall an amazing day trip from SF!

Would definitely recommend this tour, the bus driver/tour guide was very friendly and well informed! The views were absolutely breathtaking, my only complaint was that the drive was about 5 hours there and 5 hours back with only 3 hours leisure at Yosemite. There’s not much you can do about that but I’d recommend staying the night as they have lodges

The 7 hours on a coach in total aside, the park is wonderful.

The cliffs are a sight to behold and the Yosemite waterfalls are unreal.

You could, however get it all done in half a day unless yoir coach driver wants to stop quite a bit.

Im glad i went and will always keep the sights with me but i wouldn't be in a rush to ho back.

It was a good tour. However the hotel pickup can be at 06:40 hrs for hotels nearby post street as the bus departs only after 07:00 hrs.
The wi-fi in the bus did not work.

Too much to see in a very short period of time. It takes four hours to go there, four hours to tour the area and four hours to come back to San Francisco.

Our guide began the morning with pretty much scolding the passengers. Stating the he was a driving guide and it was rude if we were to interrupt him. It was so strange. I felt like a kid in a class with a super strict teacher.
He made good stops. The first was a little fruit stand. When we got back on the bus a cockroach walked by on the inside of my window. It was gross. We got to Yosemite and the best part was getting to see Nature’s beauty. We had about three hours to explore the park on our own and have lunch. We reboarded the bus and headed back. We stopped at a grocery store. At that stop my husband informed me that he had fallen asleep and woke up to a roach on his cheek. He slapped it off and killed it. The total trip time was about 14 hours. Best part was being off the bus. My husband also threw up during the trip 3 times. The driver’s driving made him super nauseated. For the money I’m not sure this trip was worth it. They definitely need to spray the bus for bugs. We’ve had better rides in third world countries.
