Astonishing view of the Yosemite Fall.

We met with our tour guide Ashley at 8:00 and started our guided hike. Because we brought our dog, due to park rule and safety, we were only allowed to stay on the road instead of the more of the path trail. Despite that Ashley was able to accommodate or situation and showed us the main attractions of the park. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time. Highly recommend this excursion for mild to moderate level of hiking skill. Enjoy.

Thank you for your feedback. Although we were able to accommodate this dog on the tour, we received no prior information about it. Also, we cannot recommend bringing a dog on any tour. They are not allowed on the majority of the trails we select for our guests, and this tour was limited due to its inclusion.

This was our first time going to Yosemite national park and our guide made sure we had a great time. We loved our guide so much, she was very friendly and humored all our questions. We learned so much throughout our tour and took so many great photos! The best tour guide experience we have had! Definitely a highlight of our road trip through the West Coast.
