Yosemite National Park Tour

The day begins with a hotel pick-up between 6:15 am and 7:00 am, making your way to one of the most famous national parks in the U.S: Yosemite National Park. You will then head east across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge which offers great views of the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Continuing into the mountains brings us to California gold country and the gold rush town of Groveland before we wind our way into Yosemite National Park. Maps in hand, we begin with a one and a half-hour narrated tour of Yosemite's glaciated valley.

You will see famous waterfalls and rock formations including Yosemite Falls - one of the tallest waterfall in North America - El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridalveil Falls, Sentinel Dome and much more. During the tour you will see Yosemite Valley from a number of great vantage points, the best of which is perhaps Inspiration Point.

This tour will be able to incorporate multiple photo stops so you can better enjoy your time in the park. After the tour, there will be a stop in the afternoon near the base of Yosemite Falls, where there are a variety of options for lunch (meals not included).

After eating, you will have 3-4 hours of free time to explore the valley as you choose. Guests are asked to please return to their group in the late afternoon, so to head to San Francisco, dropping you back off at your hotel by the evening, concluding an exciting day.
