NileGuide Expert tip:
Check out the slick new hybrid rigs that pull the Valley Floor Trams; bravo to DNC for helping the environment so many ways.
The park's concessioner runs a series of good quality bus tours, from the popular 2-hour Valley Floor Tram Tours, with rangers narrating, to the all-day Grand Tours. The Valley tram is fondly known as the 'Green Dragon' for the greenish flatbed trailers which drag tourists around the loop. You'll learn a lot and many people ride the Green Dragon year after year. New for 2010 will be special subject (climbing, birds, geology, etc.) 3-hour Valley Trams. Longer tours go to Glacier Point, Mariposa Grove and to Tuolumne Meadows. Details are at the Delaware North website, or the tour desks at Curry Village, the Ahwahnee or Yosemite Lodge.
