    Great itinerary with so many great sites to see. Great transportation. Very nice pace. The best part of our trip was our guide. Lana was absolutely outstanding. I would take a tour with her anywhere. She was very knowledgeable, accommodating, very client sensitive and had a wonderful way with the diversity of clients on the tour. In talking to her I was so impressed with her love of doing her job. If all of your guides are like Lana you are a very fortunate company.

    The Tour for Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point and Toulume Grove was great. Jeremy our tour guide and driver did an excellent job to tell us about Yosemite and kept it interesting and he was very courteous....Also, the picnic lunch was good. Would recommend... so glad we did it...saved us a lot of frustration from driving.

    Kate was WONDERFUL. She made me feel super comfortable as a solo traveler. She was extremely knowledgeable about the park and made sure we were all doing well the whole time. She also gave me great local activity options and was generally a great conversationalist. Wonderful way to see the park when you aren’t able to get a permit to do it alone. Glad I got to learn more of the history, too. For someone that never does guided tours and who has been to 20 national parks alone, i can easily say this was worth it!
