The whole journey was smooth and the meeting point was not hard to find. The weather was being nice to us and we manage to have lots of free and easy time during the tour and capture many photos. Although 1 day was never enough to fully enjoy and submerged into yosemite beauty. The tour really gave a good insight during our tight schedule in the US. Thank you !
Extremely worth it! As a frequent visitor to SF, I am well aware of the individual cost of many of the attractions listed on the pass - if you're able to combine 3 items that are more value for money (i.e. exploratorium, some of the more expensive museums, the go-kart experience -see pic for reference!) you're basically getting a super good deal.
Good way to save money if you know what activities you're interested in and you can just book on the day. Many GoCity activities don't let you book in advance. We saved money on activities we went on with pass. I wouldn't pay full price otherwise, as some activities not worth the full price cost. We chose 3 activities although depending on number of days you're in SF you may choose more.
Everything went smoothly, we had a really great driver & guide and Yosemite Valley is amazing!
The only thing I'd do different next time is actually staying over night, because a total of 4-5 hours in the park is really not even close to enough. But if you only have one day I can highly recommend this tour.
How the unlicensed tomboy travels in Yosemite Take a day tour ... ☆ The first hour of the day continues to take photos from the famous view on your way to Yosemite. Get off when you want and get off at places like camping grounds, walking trails, restaurants, etc. You have 3 hours free time. Walking around to see the waterfall, eat and see the souvenirs magically fits 3 hours. It may be a little scary to take a shuttle bus to the city.
The whole tour took about 2h30mins, the first ride usually doesn't have Live guide, however so many audio guide languages is actually sufficient. The Live guide speakers are very funny and they each have their own perks. I went around first to all the places with the bus and then stopping at Academy of sciences, continuing then to Pier 39, and then going home by tram. For golden gate, I suggest going on after lunch, in the morning it's causing backlights, so you cant really took any good pictures.
