Continue into the mountains to California’s gold rush town of Groveland. Once inside Yosemite National Park, take a 1.5-hour narrated tour of the glaciated valley in c coach. See waterfalls and rock formations, including Yosemite Falls, North America’s tallest waterfall.

Cool Alcatraz. Horrible yosemite

The Alcatraz tour is very good. The Yosemite tour sucks. They are 5 or more hours of round trip to spend 2 hours 50 minutes seeing something not very interesting. Very bad tour to Yosemite. I do not recommend it nor will I take it anymore.
