Although the scenery at Yosemite was breathtaking, the tour itself was less than enjoyable. Each stop, at only 10 minutes maximum, felt very rushed; there was insufficient time to enjoy the views. It felt as if more importance was placed on taking photos, as opposed to being immersed in the park itself. My friend and I repeatedly asked the tour guide to turn his microphone down to which he said yes, as it felt uncomfortably loud throughout the journey, however the lowered volume was not maintained and it even sounded as it was increased in parts. Whilst we found some of the stories told on the journey to be compelling, we also thought that some weren't particularly relevant or interesting.
