Marvelous Memories

We had a great trip and had a wonderful experience. Ben was our driver on day one and Denise was our driver on day two.

"Magical moments" is what we always try to deliver. We were glad to hear we delivered. Please come again.
We enjoyed our tour!

We had Denise from Extranomical Tours for the first half of our tour to Yosemite Valley and Brian from Best Bay Area Tours for the second half of our tour back. Denise's a great storyteller - she gave a lot of information on the places and their history along the way - and she was really witty. She was also very clear with communication like how much time we had at each place and when the next toilet stop would be . Brian provided more experiences, like setting up telescopes to let us view the climbers on El Capitan, and guiding us on short hikes. Both had very different styles and we enjoyed our tour very much. For those who're thinking of visiting Yosemite, we recommend taking this 2-day tour and staying overnight at Yosemite so you have more time hiking and taking in the natural wonders. The 1-day tour would have been too short for us.

Congrats! You did Yosemite right. Allow down time to enjoy Yosemite's many attractions by adding an overnight stay is a great way to go. We've passed your kind words on to your guides. Thanks.

As they do every day! Thanks for letting everyone know that the fall and early winter are some of the best times to visit and enjoy Yosemite.
