I can't fault our guide Constantine. He was very funny, very chatty, very informative and all round nice bloke. It was a long journey to Yosemite, which was expected, but the trip may have benefitted from an overnight stay in order to enjoy the full experience. Due to the length of time travelling, it meant we did not have a lot of time to explore Yosemite itself before having to leave again. It was also a bit frustrating that our guide was not permitted to drop us off where he picked us up due to company policy regarding driving times. This meant we had to get an Uber (arranged by the company however) back to our pick up point. In the time it took the Uber to come, the driver could have dropped us off. Nevertheless it was an enjoyable trip, but longer time was needed to explore the park I feel.
We ran into a few issues along the way due to weather and visibility but Dustin handled it all with grace and humour making it a very enjoyable and informative trip. Yosemite itself is absolutely stunning and definitely worth a return journey and longer stay. If you have the time for 2 or 3 days do it and you won't be disappointed but if your itinerary only stretches to a single day I can highly recommend this tour for a glimpse at a truly majestic part of the country and with every single penny. Extranomical themselves were absolutely brilliant with lots of communication beforehand, prompt collection and the best your guide on the planet. Without question a 5 star experience with a five star company.
Wonderful tour through Yosemite! You get to see everything you want to see at this grant National Park. Brian, our guide went above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience ever! Very interesting and informative! I would book this tour with Brian again in a heartbeat!
I highly recommend choosing this tour if you want to visit Yosemite for the day. The day is organised perfectly, as you are able to see plenty of spots in Yosemite valley. The walk of the Sequoias is a beautiful walk and you get time at lunch to explore within the valley.
Excellent value and a wonderful way to spend a day. I would recommend considering the overnight option—I was limited due to work commitments but would have preferred a longer trip. For one day and a long journey, this was a good value option with a wonderful guide.
