We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Yosemite. Our tour guide Matt was incredible! He shared information on the history and geology of the park along with numerous stories of the people that made the park what it is today. Highly recommended!

Nate was very knowledgeable of the history and nature of the area. Very engaged with us during the hile

Fantastic! We were picked up at Rush Creek at 8:30am and drove into the park for our first stop, a walk through the giant sequoias. Truly awesome and humbling to walk among them. From there we drove down into Yosemite Valley. First stop was Bridalveil Falls. Next stop was lunch. We had selected the pre-packed lunch - it was excellent and good value. More hiking after lunch. We covered all the sites as mentioned in the tour description. Our guide, Matthew, was friendly and knowledgeable. We had the best day. Highly recommended.

Nate was our tour guide and did a phenomenal job maximizing our experience on the Yosemite Valley Discover Walk. He captivated our attention throughout the tour by sharing his knowledge of the layout and history of the park. He exuded time management skills that enabled us to see many of the park’s hidden gems that pictures cannot do justice and we probably would’ve missed out on had we ventured on our own. We went mid March, dressed in layers, and brought a change of clothes. The kids 10 & 14 loved walking through a hollowed trunk of a fallen tree and playing in the snow throughout the hike. Hands down an excellent experience!

We had an excellent day tour with our very knowledgeable guide, Brian. I thought initially it was quite expensive but in the end it was good value for money. We learnt more about the Yosemite National Park from history, best photo spots and fauna and flora in the area. The tour we chose had limited walks. I would recommend a guided tour in the winter because the driving is quite long and roads are windy and quite treacherous in wintry conditions. It is much less stressful with someone else, who knows the roads, driving.

Our family had a really fun day exploring the world renowned features of Yosemite Park. Bryant was our guide and was great at giving us the history, geology, tree info and climbing challenges of Yosemite. we climbed the boulders leading up to Yosemite Falls which took me back to my childhood of doing the same. Our highlight was seeing two climbers climbing El Cap and Bryant let us hang out a bit longer than he planned because we were all so interested. A very delicious lunch was provided as well. We loved the day and had a great time. Definitely recommend especially if you haven't been before like my husband.

Nate was so knowledgeable and passionate about the past k and conservation. We would have missed out on so much of the history and the science without his insights.

DaveF299

Nate was excellent. Informative, passionate and led to several slightly less crowded but still beautiful locations. Answered question ranging from geology, flora, native people. trail suggestions and other enjoyable locations of significance in this amazing park! Nice guy. Highly recommended.

Our guide Nate was so personable and very quickly figured out our interests after seeing what we gravitated toward. He drove us into the valley and we saw as much of the major natural features of Yosemite along with Native American influence and people and immigrants who helped shape how we access and explore this amazing national park today. We discussed the native fauna and plants which provided us with a deeper understanding and appreciation of this wondrous natural environment despite the tourism. And then, The Ahwahnee hotel which was the inspiration for the interior sets of “The Shining” horror movie - we wanted to visit and Nate took us for a personal tour - just WOW! Highly recommend the Yosemite Valley Discovery Walk, it was not tiring at all for us and got our 15,000 steps in for the day. Plus Nate is the best!
