Day 1 San Francisco There's a lot to see and do in San Francisco, and we recommend spending extra time here if you'd like to explore the city. Haight-Ashbury, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, and the city's famous cable cars all await.
We highly recommend booking pre-tour accommodation to enjoy more of the city. Speak to your sales agent to book extra accommodation.

Private Van with Wi-fi (7.00 hour(s), 225km)
Day 3 Yosemite National Park/Sierra Nevadas (1B, 1L, 1D) Set off on a hike through beautiful scenery, such as waterfalls and giant sequoias. Drive through Tioga Pass (seasonal) and take in scenic views of Yosemite's Valley. Marvel at spectacular views of Yosemite National Park's magnificent peaks and granite domes and enjoy one of most scenic areas in California.
Note: we intend on using Tioga Pass, a scenic route through the Sierra Nevada mountain range that connects Yosemite NP with Bishop. In the spring and autumn seasons, there's a chance that the pass will be closed due to poor weather conditions or even snow. In such a case, we use an alternate route south, and will spend the night in Lake Isabella instead of Bishop. The status of the road is monitored daily, and our travel plan for the area will be confirmed during the trip.
