Tour was good. Our tour guide Scott and bus driver both were nice and corporative. Yosemite is only sightseeing where we saw EL Captain, tunnel view and bridal veil falls but not close to half dome because it was far but it's Ok. I liked Lombard street, Golden gate bridge, Bay cruise, Fisherman Wharf, 17 mile drive lone Cypress. Overall awesome.

My wife and I took this tour early this month. This three day tour is very well organised. Bilingual guide Jackson spoke in both Mandarin and English and was very helpful. Nice comfortable hotels were well chosen. Regular stops for restrooms were given. In depth Yosemite and a very comprehensive San Francisco sightseeing left us with nothing more to ask for.

This was my first tour ever! I was a bit skeptical at first based on the reviews and all i had read unfortunately i was a little too late on the research to actually backout, but i am glad i pulled through with the trip. the tour guide jeffrey was awesome, he knew the history of all the places that we visited the itinerary was also very convenient if i would have taken this trip alone i would not have covered every location that we did. the transportation was great, comfortable seats and a place to be able to charge your cellphones, the hotels were very convenient comfortable and clean! This tour is definitely a must if you are looking to sight see on a limited time!

It is too late to write the review but still I would like to share my experience. We toured last May. The experience was just amazing. All the arrangements were very nice and the trip was well planned. We enjoyed a lot!! Thank you take tours. Leg space in the bus was little small. This is the only con I can say. Other than that everything was great.

I recommend this tour!

It was a great tour! The tour guide and bus driver were very professional and attentive. It was a lot that we visited in three days so this tour may not fit the ones that want to really explore and spend more time on each stop. While traveling, we stopped every 2 to 3 hours to eat and use restrooms and food options were vast and affordable. Hotel was ok the first night but the second night we stayed in a very comfortable Courtyard by Marriot. For the price we payed it was well worth it and I would definitely recommend!

It was the best! The driver "Jose" and the tour guide "Joey" were very funny and punctual with the trip. It was very organized and everyone had fun. We got people from various nationalities, and the tour went well with exploring the beautiful Bay Area and singing along the way.

The trip was a bit loosely organised. Very few places we covered. Day 2 in San Francisco, we finished our trip & reached the hotel by 5:00PM. In-depth tour could have taken to more places. Bit disappointed with the places covered in 3 days. Accommodation was very good, we also stopped at various food outlets where we either got Indian food or vegetarian food. Our tour guide Paul Ho was very good & patient. He was very helpful too.

Overall, the tour is great. I believe it would have been better if there was more time in Yosemite. Also, it was unfortunate that due to the drought, there was no water in Hearst Castle's Neptune pool and no water in the falls in Yosemite
