Had a good time in Yosemite
Nov 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed the great scenery and had a good time walking some of the trails. The one not very enjoyable was the long trip to and from the park. The driver was great but we were disappointed that we had to ride in a much smaller vehicle than the large luxury bus that we were expecting. The smaller vehicle made the trip more taxing to the passengers.

Good time,
I really enjoyed the trip, nice bus, driver, guide. Park is a place you must go if you have time while in SF. However, the description of the tour included a walk to see the the sequoias. The guide indicated the area was closed but when my wife asked while in the park, we were told the area has been open for more than one month. Please don’t lie on your description. Otherwise, having small water bottles in the bus would be a very nice touch

Hello Caplata, thanks for your review. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed the trip on the bus and the guide. Regarding the Sequoia walk comment, I would like to clarify that our tour description does not include the stop at Sequoias. We prefer to offer a long stop in the Yosemite Valley, compared to other tours that stop at the Sequoias, so people can enjoy longer the experience in the Valley. I would really appreciate it if you let us know how you received this information, to make sure this does not happen again to future customers. I hope you chose Gray Line San Francisco for your next sightseeing tour in San Francisco. Andrea Customer Relations Manager Gray Line San Francisco

This is THE Yosemite Tour you need
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was a trip I had planned for my mother’s 60th birthday trip and I could not have been more happy with this trip. Antonio was our tour guide and he was nothing short than spectacular. He was friendly, personable and quick to answer any questions you had. Additionally, he was a great photographer!

The icing on the cake was him showing us some spots that he likes to go himself. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

The tour guide makes all the difference. Antonio was excellent! Only downfall was the smoke. I’ll have to schedule another visit to this amazing park.

Great Tour
Sep 2021 • Family
My son and I had a great time on this trip! We arrived at the parking garage at 5:55 am near the Post Street address. It was a one minute walk to the destination. The bus arrived on time. Keep in mind that San Francisco is very cold in the morning and evening. The bus was comfortable - it had foot rests and a place to plug in your phone on the floor. There was also a pocket attached to the seat in front of you. Antonio was our tour guide and he was fantastic! He was knowledgeable about everything throughout the entire trip. He made it very memorable!!! We arrived back to Post Street about 8:30 pm or so. There is one stop on the way there and one stop on the way back. Each one was approximately 30 minutes which allowed for bathroom breaks and food (there is a bathroom on the bus). Overall, a great trip that was worth the money. I highly recommend it.

Cancelled the night before, promised for refund but no refund.
Tours4fun Yosemite trip from SanFrancisco.
It was cancelled on the night before we go. One says its confirmed and the other email says cancelled. So I called to see ask what is going on.
Our tour was basically cancelled due to small number who signed on for the tour. They promised to give the full refund and expect it in 3-5business days. Now Sept 4,its been 10business days past and still have not see any sign of refund. Common tour people guide, if you are not doing the tour you should not process the payment in the first place. That way it would be easy to both of us.

Hello Maria, We do not have any reservations under your name around the dates of your review. Please get in touch with us at (415) 353 5310 with your Booking reference number, so we can verify if your claim is accurate and follow up with any refund if necessary.

I hope you call us as soon as you read our reply. Thanks Gray Line San Francisco

A pleasant and exciting tour
Aug 2021
The tour starts from the downtown, San Francisco with a pick up at two places. The driver (Jack) and the tour guide (Joseph) works like a team with an excellent cooperation benefitting all travelers. Best part of the tour - both Jack and Joseph provide all information regarding the tour detail including the lunch and food information. Both ways, the bus stops at the grocery where the visitor can buy fresh lunch and snacks at a comparative price. The tour was extremely enjoyable with the background history and the photo opportunity. In brief, a tourist can surely take the tour (single or family) without any hesitation.
