Highlights
  • Combine a guided Yosemite tour with free time to explore on your own
  • See Central California’s farmlands on the way to the Sierra Nevada mountains
  • View the tallest waterfall in North America: Yosemite Falls
  • Skip the hassle of navigating windy roads, traffic, and Yosemite parking
What to Expect
After morning pickup at your San Francisco hotel, settle in for a comfortable drive across the Central Valley. Stop for refreshments in one of the US’s largest farming regions, then continue through California Gold Rush territory to Yosemite National Park. Get oriented first with a vehicle tour of Yosemite Valley. See rock climbers scaling the walls of El Capitan; get photo ops of Half Dome, Bridalveil Falls, and Yosemite Fall; and look over the entire Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View. Enjoy stops for photo ops of the granite rock formations, forest, wildlife, and towering waterfalls, and have access to areas that big tour buses can’t navigate. Purchase lunch, then have three hours of free time to hike, rent a bike, view exhibits at the visitor’s center or Ansel Adams Gallery, or relax at the historic Ahwahnee Hotel. Your tour ends with return to your departure point.
