Quick review: Jamie was a fantastic guide on a very hot day in Yosemite! This felt like a fun field trip with a great group of strangers and a van that had great AC. Jamie gave us realistic advice for which places to visit in the 3 hours we had at the valley. More details: It was our first time going to Yosemite, and although we wanted to do the Giant Sequoia trip, IncredibleAdventures (who operates this tour) told us that not enough people booked The Giant Sequoia trip for us to go on it (they told us 2 days before our scheduled tour). Luckily, they rebooked us into the Yosemite Day Trip tour (for the same date as our original reservations) and gave us a refund for the inconvenience. The Yosemite Day Trip tour was awesome! Even when we had some issues with receiving our refund, the GetYourGuide customer service team helped us out quickly. Overall, very satisfied with the clarity before and throughout the trip to Yosemite! Their customer service after the trip was also exceptional.
Great sites, driver was super friendly. We weren’t able to eat at our leisure in the vehicle due to Covid which was a challenge in a 15 hour trip. We also could have condensed some of the sites. We never got to stop and take pictures at overlooks for those iconic Yosemite park views— that was a big disappointment. Only pics we took were up close to Points Of Interest like El Capitan, etc. Definitely does not need to be an 8 hour tour. Felt like driver was dragging it out a bit bc that’s what we paid for, but I would have preferred getting back earlier. That’s me though. Maybe provide a variety of trip lengths; 3 hour, 5 hour and 8 hour..... Also would suggest updating the excursion description regarding the waterfalls — as being a point of interest during the seasons when they are dried up— would have liked to know that ahead of time. Maybe plan on stopping at the river instead so people can get a water feature of some sorts when the falls are dry. Add a restaurant stop to tour.
Our guide Daniel Gail was very well informed and brought us to many beautiful viewpoints as well as hiking corners. The 4 days were very pleasant. He also could always recommend something in the area we stayed in.
To be a one-day tour, not bad. The most touristic part of the Park is seen, a bit accelerated all but it is logical to not have much time. In general, it is well worth doing.
