Great tour

Very good, very organized, as Yosemite is so big, she was directed so we could know as much as possible in 2 days, lovely, high-spirited guide Lysa gave us several tips, made Yosemite an unforgettable experience, but I received the information that came in email that breakfast was available but in reality was not

Awesome tour!

We were picked up promptly by the guide in a modern comfortable vehicle. The majority of day 1 was spent visiting Giant Sequoias outside of Yosemite as Mariposa Grove in Yosemite was closed. We got to the park about 5pm and visited Glacier Point lookout which was great. Dropped off those staying at Yosemite Lodge then a 45 minute drive to Cedar Lodge - so it was about 8.30 by the time we got there, a full day. Limited food options at Cedar Lodge. Next day was breakfast at Yosemite Lodge as they have better breakfast options. We were then free to do as we liked for the day, with good advice from the guide. Most the group walked to the top of Vernal Falls - awesome views and even saw a bear! The guide came with us. In the afternoon time was made for those of us who wanted to take a quick swim, then a photo stop by El Capitan and then off toward San Fransisco. We experienced a vehicle break down about 2 hours out of SF, but it was well managed by the guide and company.

Randy was an awesome tour guide. He is however super fit so his idea of an easy hike may not be the same as yours. Yosemite is amazing and Randy knows all the best places. Would recommend it to everyone
