Follow the instructions you get when you book the tour. Getting to the meeting spot early, sunscreen, drinks/ snacks hats. The buses are open topped, so if you're going in the afternoon, you'll be suffering if you don't have a hat and sunscreen. The buses...More

I had taken the 3 PM 2-hr Valley floor tour in May. The tour started a bit late because the trailer in which we would be stacked up came in a bit late due to heavy traffic in the valley. When I saw the trailer...More

Our guide shared a wealth of information, but it was more like information overload. This was so boring that we all fell asleep half way through the tour. Not enough stops to make this worth-while. We would have just preferred the shuttle.

At this time of year, Glacier point is sadly still closed because of snow, leaving only the Valley floor tour being available. We're glad we did it, despite us being able to drive around Yosemite ourselves, being driven in a coach, gives both driver and...More

Book in advance as it sells out very quickly. At the end of the tour 5 minute walh to the bottom of yosemite falls a must. Lots of photo opportunities. Have lunch in the main restaurantt not expensive.

This was a bus tour around the valley loop road. We saw nothing that we didn't see driving around the valley in our car. The driver/guide was full of information, but that information could have been presented just as well in a free lecture in...More

I took the train and bus so I'm unable to reply.
We will be driving from vegas to yosemite for a 2 nights stay in yosemite, we are very interested in the Yosemite Valley Floor Tour, but I'm not sure if I should book it the same day of arrival say by 3:00pm or let it be the next morning, to give us a slake to check in our accommodation and rest a while from the long drive

We drove in from Oakland and took the 2 pm tour the same day. It was a nice respite for me (driver). It lasts about 2 hours and will give you some perspective on other sites to see during your stay. There are about 5 stop... More
