What to expect

Join this tour for a beautiful day in one of the crowl jewels of the United States National Parks: Yosemite National Park! This full-day tour includes a visit to stunning trails, epic waterfalls, and giant sequoia trees. Throughout the adventure, you will be guided by an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide.

The tour starts by heading east across the San Francisco Bay Bridge and give you stunning views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge. You will continue through the Central Valley (San Joaquin Valley) of California. The Central Valley is the largest food-growing region in the United States. You will drive past almond, walnut, cherry, and other fruit and nut orchards. After making a quick stop for snacks, the tour will continue on into the Sierra Nevada foothills and California’s gold country where you will drive through the historic gold country town of Groveland California and finally into the mountains and Yosemite National Park.

Once in the park, you will spend time (weather and conditions permitting) walking amongst the biggest living things on land, the giant redwood trees, also known as Sequoias. The largest tree is over 40 feet (12 meters) in diameter at its base and lives to well over 3,000 years. Afterwards, experience one of the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley, a view that includes Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, and Half Dome. From there there will be a short drive to Bridalveil Falls and El Capitan, the largest exposed piece of granite in the world, rising 4000 feet above the valley floor. Then it’s on to see Half Dome and the tallest waterfalls in North America, Yosemite Falls with its 1000 foot (300 meter) drop. Yosemite has more waterfalls than any other national park in the United States.

Now it’s time for lunch (not included) at the Yosemite Lodge and some free time to explore on your own. During your free time, you might hike along stunning trails, relax at the base of Yosemite Falls, or visit Yosemite Village. After some time on your own, the tour will ascend out of the valley with another quick stop in the Central Valley for some food before heading back to San Francisco and your hotel.
