Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the 2-Day Yosemite National Park Tour from San Francisco submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
We were so lucky to finish the 2-day tour on 09/30, right before the shutdown. Heather was our guide and driver. We were a small group of 5 people from 3 different countries. Heather was very thoughtful and helpful. We visited the Mariposa to see the grand sequoia, a good start. Then we had three stops, tunnel view, meadow where we saw the climbers, and reflections in the river for awesome pictures. We stayed at Yosemite Lodge at the fall, very convenient location but don't expect too much of the room. The next day we chose to do the trail to the top of vernal fall and yes, there were water! We also got to see the damage of rim fire on our way back. We were back in town around 7pm. Last comment from my local friends who did the same 2 day trip, apparently we paid a lot more. Not sure if it were because we were a smaller group and had a cool van. Yosemite was really the right choice for people like us who liked the scenery and nature.Reviewed by: Yi F, October 2013
I choose this tour strictly because of the reviews I read online. We had Mark as our tour guide. He was great! Great personality and very knowledgeable in regards to the history of the Valley. He reminded me of a long lost cousin showing you around his part of the world. We stopped at a farm on the way to Yosemite to pick up fresh fruit and snacks. Stayed at Cedar Lodge which was comfortable and clean. Good hiking and everyone had some free time. My son and I used our free time to have a local beer on the lawn of the Ahwahnee Hotel. It was awesome!
I highly recommend this tour! If you are lucky you'll get Mark as your tour guide. You won't soon forget your trip to the Yosemite Valley!
Awesome place and worth every moment spent there. Glad I chose to stay within Yosemite Lodge, allowing me lots of free time to venture before tour pick-up the next day.Reviewed by: Ivy L, September 2013

I was a little disappointed with Viator Service when I specifically asked if we could be picked up at our hotel instead of Parc 55 Hotel. I got a negative from Viator. But when the day of our tour came up we were waiting at the Parc 55 Hotel and the tour operator was looking for us at our hotel. Good thing I called after 5 minutes to learn what was happening and the tour operator turned around and pick us up at Parc 55. I give all the points to the tour operator.Reviewed by: Veronica L L, September 2013
