We are seniors on a road trip in California. We chose this bus tour so that my husband would not have to drive in Yosemite. We stayed in Groveland, and the tour from San Francisco picked us up there. The tour was just as described, and our guide/driver Alberto was outstanding. We knew in advance that physically we could not do the walk back up from the Sequoias, so we visited Kings Canyon and Sequoia on our own the previous day. There were many good photo opportunities of the best-known features and free time for those who could to explore more on their own. We had a good lunch there. The tour made it possible for us to visit Yosemite without stress.
Our tour guide was funny, extremely knowledgeable and punctual. We only had a day and a half at Yosemite and this tour was the perfect way to see the major sites. We were able to hike down to see the giant sequoias and hike all the Yosemite Falls trails. Ample time at stops for pictures and also 2 hikes.
Gino was funny. A couple of downfalls the bus was about 20 minutes late so we lost time there and then on the first hike people were late so we lost time there. The places we saw were great though!
Beautiful park. Amazing scenery. Our guide was very knowledgeable. He was also very friendly and pleasant to be with.
The bus was a little bit late picking us up at the meeting place so we were worried.
