Highlights
  • Leave the logistics of your Yosemite adventure to a driver-guide
  • Avoid the hassle of crowded parking lots, so you can spend more time exploring
  • Small-group tour limited to 15 people for a more personalized experience 
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation in a comfortable minibus
What to Expect
Your morning starts with a pickup from a select San Francisco hotel. Board the minibus, settle in for the drive, and enjoy the scenery while you cross the Bay Bridge. Stop for a snack before continuing to the Sierra Nevada foothills and Gold Country. Enter Yosemite National Park via Groveland, making a quick stop for a guided hike among sequoia redwoods. Then, stop at Tunnel View for photo ops of Bridalveil Fall, Half Dome, and El Capitan before continuing to Yosemite Valley. Get close enough to El Capitan to spot climbers scaling its sheer face, and move on to Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. After some free time to purchase lunch (own expense) or explore the falls or Yosemite Village, meet with your driver for the journey back. Make a short stop in the Central Valley for a snack before getting dropped off at your hotel.

Fantastic 1-day excursion! Super-convenient pick up and drop off with short stops for restroom & food (both ways). Food court at Yosemite had nice options and boxed the takeout (we picnicked near the swinging bridge - best al fresco dining spot during COVID-19, and beyond!).
