Excursion d'une journée à Yosemite au départ de San Francisco
Après être entré dans le parc national de Yosemite via l'historique Groveland, passez du temps (si la météo le permet) à marcher au milieu des séquoias géants du Yosemite - le plus grand de ces séquoias géants mesure plus de 12 mètres de diamètre à sa base et est âgé d'au moins 3 000 ans.
Après une randonnée d'un kilomètre et demi, poursuivez jusqu'à la vallée de Yosemite via Tunnel View, un point de vue qui offre une vue sur la chute de Bridalveil, El Capitan, et sur le Half Dome. De là, un court trajet en voiture permet d'accéder à ces sites. Émerveillez-vous devant « El Cap », considérée comme la plus grande pièce de granite exposée, et s'élève à 1 219 mètres au-dessus du fond de la vallée. Tentez de repérer les grimpeurs qui escaladent les parois verticales avant de contempler la ville voisine de Half Dome et les chutes de Yosemite.
Profitez de votre temps libre pour déjeuner (à vos frais), partez en randonnée le long de sentiers en pleine nature, détendez-vous à la base des chutes de Yosemite, ou visitez Yosemite Village. Le voyage de retour comprend un autre arrêt pour une collation dans la vallée centrale, avant que votre excursion de 14 heures ne se termine par un dépôt à votre hôtel de San Francisco.

This is a great way to see Yosemite. Joe of Best Bay Tours was a great guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining, taking us to all the Yosemite highlights. It is a long day but definitely worth every penny!
Really good day, would recommend everyone should visit, but it's a long 14hr day. Felt a little rushed at sights to start with, but once Joe our guide realised we were all good timekeepers it was great, he was very informative and approachable, just needed L and R written on each hand to tell us which way to look at things.
Long day but well worth it. Our guide Anthony was very knowledgable and knew the best places to stop for good views and to visit the main sites and attractions. Highly recommended
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.
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.
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!
It wasn't the tour so much as the park itself. We paid a lot of money for the tour for a family of 4. Our tour guide was very laid back, almost too laid back. He could have given us a lot more info on our 4 and a half hour bus ride. Lunch should have been included in the price of the tour, since the tour was expensive and the food once there was too! The park itself was nice, but could definately use upgrades. The bathrooms were severely limited and absolutely disgusting. With that many visitors a year, it's a shame that park system doesn't care enough to make sure that they are kept clean throughout the day! There also needs to be more signs throughout the park and more shuttles in between points of interest as well as more places to eat and drink. Would not recommend this tour. Very expensive and didn't get much for your money. Could have rented a car and had more time to eat
The tour guide(I would call him our captain!), he really was full of energy. He explained all about Yosemite while introducing us a lot of spectacular scenes. It took about 14 hours including riding time. It can be little bit tiring but it worth your time!!
Yosemite is spectacular but the tour left you very little free time to explore around, not even talk about if you want to do a few trekking paths on your own. Totally impossible. As you have to rush back to their parking lot which is far away from the waterfall valley area, reserved at least 30 mins walking back and forth and you will be only given 1hour 20mins in total to explore the area. During the whole trip the guide Patrick was non-stop playing very loud music according to his likings, which most of us were not really appreciated, especially it's not good for the elders' ears and those who would like to take a rest. What worse was the vehicle broke down on the way back to SF at Oakdale. We had to wait for another car to pick us up coming from SF which meant we had to wait three and a half hour at Oakdale. We could have the option to join the other tour bus to drop us back to SF, but he didn't offer to pay the fare for us. He didn't offer us any dinner voucher or compensations, but just an ice cream bar and water as we insisted. So we had to pay for our own expenses and waited for 3 more hours which everyone of us was exhausted. I think the company could do much better to fix the problem but not just keep mentioning for the tips you expected. And proper check up for the vehicle should be done before conducting any tours is a basic thing.
Brilliant Day.The scenery and waterfalls are lovely. A must do trip to see the sights and the big trees.
