Thanks for your kind words about the tour. We think the fall is a beautiful time to be in Yosemite and the park is less crowded than normal. You're right about the waterfalls being at their best in the spring. Take care and travel safe!

Being a tree surgeon you would expect the last thing i would want to do is pay to see more trees, but its been a dream of mine to see the giant sequoias in real, words cannot describe the size of these trees and the power they posses over the surrounding area its amazing. To top it off got to enjoy the national park and spotted a few bears. I would recommend this trip to anyone because there is something for everyone.

I orderd equipment of a Japanese guide on this tour.
And I received a message that my tour would be guided in Japanese.
However, this tour had no one and no explanation that complete above request.
So I had to join this tour with an American driver guide whose English was hard to understand for nonnative persons.
The tour delayed more than an hour, cause the gude's poor management and bussy traffic.
Exactly, the landscape was very beautiful, but I finished this tour with complaints.

If you just have a day to spare, this is a great tour to book.
Timely pick up and sufficient stops in between.
Our driver and guide Phil was extremely passionate to show us the best. We got adequate time to visit all the tourist areas and extra time to spot some bears as well 😀.

1. I was supposed to pick up at 6:20am in front of the hotel for the Yosemite tour. But the tour guide mistook my pick up point and I waited over 45 minutes.
She didn’t give me a call. I did. *I asked the concierge to talk the tour guide by phone directly since I’m not a native English speaker.
It was ok because it happens sometimes if there is miscommunication.
But the tour guide didn’t say even sorry and she blamed it on me in front of every tourist in the bus although I showed the confirmation email.

2. The tour guide didn’t give me a call to delay a pick up time from Yosemite.
I gave a call and the staff said the tour guide gave me a call and left the message.
But there is no message.
I was in the hotel lobby in Yosemite 30 minutes prior to the pick-up time, so the signal was good.

3. I took a seat when I return from Yosemite because I was the first to arrive.
But the tour guide asked me to move the other seat next to the person who joined alone because I’m alone.
And the person who arrived late(the last) had a seat only by himself.
Even he joined the tour alone.
It was pretty unfair and I felt really sad.

日本人の方は、英語が話せたとしても、絶対に日本のツアーに参加されるべきだと思います。

Hi Kumiko, We are sorry to hear your Yosemite experience did not meet your expectations. We want all of our guests to have the most enjoyable tour with us and we are sorry that you did not feel you received this service. On the way back from Yosemite we do ask that new guests joining the tour wait for existing passengers to get on the bus first as they generally have their personal belongings already at their seats and we know that couples like to travel together, so, we ask that single guests either sit at a free seat or next to another single guest. Giving you the opportunity to meet new people if this is your choice. This is not an aim towards you, just a courtesy to our other guests who have already settled into their seats. Regarding the pick-up times, we are sorry for any confusion, lateness and the fact that you did not receive any messages that may have been left for you. If you have any further concerns, please feel free to email them to: feedback@extranomical.com. Kind Regards, Extranomical Tours
