Yosemite Day Trip

One of the great natural wonders of the world, Yosemite National Park and its spectacular valley have an unforgettable impact on everyone who visits. Travel from San Francisco through California's agricultural Central Valley and into the Sierra Foothills where 49ers panned for gold. Follow the beautiful Merced River to the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. Glaciers cut through these mountains forming the spectacular granite monuments you will see throughout the park, including breath taking waterfalls and Half Dome.

Take in some of the most breathtaking sights California has to offer in this one day tour departing San Francisco to Yosemite National Park. Travel in comfort on a coach bus and enjoy a rest stop in the Central Valley where you can take an opportunity to grab a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park! Upon arriving to the National Park Entrance, take a scenic drive through the park and enjoy a photo stop at one of Yosemite Valley's most famous viewpoints overlooking the entire Yosemite Valley, Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, and Half Dome. As you travel down to the Yosemite Valley, get up close to El Capitan and Bridalveil falls.

Next, enjoy 3 hours of free time in the Yosemite Valley, where you can take in stellar views of North America's tallest waterfall, Yosemite Falls and hike to the base of the Lower Falls. The Yosemite Valley offers various lunch opportunities, hiking trails, bike rentals, museums, and a number of stops to take advantage of the free shuttle service which will give you access to other parts of the park. This one day tour allows you ample opportunities to see all Yosemite National Park has to offer.

Return to San Francisco includes a rest stop.

The tour route and some stops may vary due to the weather and traffic conditions.

      The pickup and the returning trip was good, maybe we choose the wrong timing, nothing much to see as no waterfalls, and the view is not so magnificent as per the picture shown. Should just hike the 2 hrs as the weather, air there is Good. ...Do not suggest to take the free shuttle bus as no explanation given to us and what to see on every stop, wasted more than an hrs ride on the free shuttle ride. As compare to other day tour which I have used, I think it will be good and better if the driver can help or offer to snap picture for us. Then the customer service will improve more Read full review

      Our driver/guide was amazing and had so much knowledge about Yosemite and the surrounding area. It was just a shame after a day of walking around there was not complimentary water on the bus.

      Our tour to Yosemite August 18,2019 was the best ever we had. They pickup-ed us on time from the hotel where we stayed. The bus driver tour was so nice, he got positive attitude and patience.

    Hello, I'm interested in the one-day Yosemite National park tour from San Fransisco! I'm planning on booking an airbnb, not a hotel. Should I just state the closest pick-up point from my airbnb as the meeting point? Moreover, do I have to state a specific pick-up point in one of the downtown areas or are there pick-up points to choose from? I hope you can help me with my problem! :) -Magdalena
