What people are saying about Lembert Dome

The freedom to explore was wonderful (albeit short) - we had a good group that was reliable for each return, which motivated everyone. The driver Rob was absolutely amazing and engaging with us. (Though please provide improved equipment. The microphone in the bus was really bad and people in the back had difficulties to understand half of what was said. A lot of the 'Audio guide experience' was lost because of it. This was a bit unfortunate. But since it was a technical aspect, the driver had no influence on said technical difficulties)

Was a very long day, but we had an amazing tour guide (Ben ) who was so nice and engaging with the group. You could tell he had a genuine love for Yosemite, and he ensured that we maximised our time there. Only complaints on the trip were the bus wifi not present and the aircon not working that well . But other than that the trip was amazing. Definitely add this to your list of things to do

The trip was an excellent way to see the park in a day. The bus was comfortable. There was time to walk around the park. The only negative was they were at least 1/2 hour late picking us up. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

I had the best time at Yosemite and I’m glad I chose this company for the tour ! Even though we had to change bus everything was smoothly and the guide was super professional. Had a lot of fun, I can only highly recommend it !

Guide was very informative and helpful. Lunch was great.
