Discover Yosemite Tour

We visited as a guest

Discover Yosemite Private Tour

Yosemite is a beautiful place to visit in the winter, but many families get nervous about driving around in the National Park when there is snow and ice on the ground. When I went to Tenaya Lodge on a Mother/Daughter weekend getaway, I didn’t want to drive around Yosemite in the snow alone with my daughter, so we made reservations with the hotel concierge to have a tour of Yosemite National Park with Discover Yosemite Tours.

The morning of our tour, my daughter started the day with a relaxing yoga class at Ascent Spa, and then we met our driver for the day, Glenn. Glenn greeted all the children on our tour with coloring books and provided the adults with a map of Yosemite. He told us a little bit about himself and then guided us to the plush bus that would take us all around Yosemite National Park.

Glenn was the most knowledgable tour guide I have ever met. He knew everything about Yosemite and educated us on all the history of the park while driving us around. Not only did my daughter get a chance to witness some of the most beautiful sights in the world, but she also got an unforgettable educational experience. If we had driven around the park by ourselves, we would of just witnessed the beauty of the National Park, and wouldn’t have learned anything about the history and what makes the park so special.

While on the tour we took many stops along the way to admire the beautiful valleys, waterfalls, and wildlife. He stopped the bus so we could go on a small hike to lower Yosemite Falls and have lunch at the Majestic Yosemite Hotel (previously Ahwahnee). It was a day that my daughter and I didn’t want to end.
