Very nice and pleasant tour of Yosemite! Visited nice points of interest and our tour guide Kate, was awesome. She was informative, friendly and knowledgeable. Answered questions with clear and interesting information. My wife and I were very pleased with the overall aspects of the tour. It was unfortunate that the waterfalls were nonexistent due to our lack of rain but nevertheless we enjoyed the tour and had a wonderful experience.

Our Guide Phil was very knowledgeable and made the day very enjoyable. He told us lots of history and fun facts that we did not know. Took us to the most beautiful places in Yosemite and was right there to cheer us on when the hike got a little rough.

A fantastic day out in Yosemite with a highly knowledgable and friendly tour guide named Jeremy. The timings according to the itinerary that we had been sent were adhered to precisely which made for a very simple and stress free rendezvous with the tour bus and then from then on the experience got better and better as the day went on. Jeremy went out of his way to ensure that everybody got equal amounts of his time and knowledge whilst also ensuring that we all came away with great photos from our day! For me personally, the highlight was the up close visit to El Capitan but all in all, the entire national park of Yosemite is awe inspiring and breath taking! We very much look forward to visiting again and will certainly recommend Incredible Adventures again
