What people are saying about Sierra Nevada, CA

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)

A long trip but we got to see some amazing scenery. I think an overnight stay is worthwhile as the return trip gets back around 9-10pm. There was adequate time for a little hike through the park. I left my backpack on the bus and the company kindly organised a collection time and place for me to retrieve it.

Rob was super helpful, very informative, keep the spirit of the entire journey without being lazy at any second. Lady Drove us safely back and forth safely. All together they really took care of us. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to cover Yosemite National Park in one day.

A very nicely organised trip through valleys and forests and the Californian scenic countryside. Our driver Chris was polite and efficient and drove safely, and our guide Mike, truly guided us during the whole day with excellent information and tips. He was amazing ! A day to remember.

The guide worked well and was very informative. If we stopped, it would pick back up when we drove again. I would say it was well worth the fee.
