    Overall it was a good experience would like to stay a bit longer at Pebble Beach & Carmel. The San Francisco day was excellent. I would skip the City Hall and would prefer more a stop at Golden Gate Park or at Muir Woods. The Yosemite day was great the only problem we had was an Austrian couple was late by 25 minutes from our first El Capitan stop. This made coming back to Los Angeles very late.

Beautiful experience, to see

Unique experience, perfect organization, apart from the hours that are spent on the bus that are exhausting, everything is then rewarded at the sight of these beautiful places, to do at least once in a lifetime.
