Our guide and bus driver, Ray, was an extremely great guy. He narrated everything during the trip as well as in Yosemite. He even provided free time and stopovers when needed. All in all, it was great experience.

I recommend this tour!

Our bus captain and guide (I cant exactly recall his name, but I think he's Stan) is very knowledgeable and an excellent guide! He's got a rather peculiar sense of humour which I find very entertaining. I will recommend staying at least an evening at Yosemite (2 day tour of Yosemite at least) as you will not have enough time to cover the attractions in this National Park!
