Yosemite in a Day Tour from San Francisco

Your small-group tour, limited to 15 participants to allow for a more personalized experience, begins with a pickup at selected hotels or in front of the Parc 55 Hotel. Heading across the San Francisco Bay Bridge by minivan, take in the views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Continuing on through the San Joaquin Valley, you're driven past fruit and nut orchards. After making a quick stop for snacks, you'll arrive in the Sierra Nevada foothills and California Gold Country. Entering Yosemite National Park via historical Groveland, spend time (weather conditions permitting) walking among Yosemite’s giant sequoias — the largest of these ancient redwood trees spans more than 40 feet (12 meters) in diameter at its base and lives to at least 3,000 years old.After the 1-mile hike, it's onward to Yosemite Valley via Tunnel View, a vista point that includes views of Bridalveil Fall, El Capitan, and Half Dome. From here it's a short drive to these sights. Marvel at 'El Cap,' considered the world's largest exposed piece of granite, which rises 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) above the valley floor. Search for rock climbers ascending the vertical wall before gazing up at nearby Half Dome and Yosemite Falls.Spend your free time for lunch (own expense), hike along nature trails, relax at the base of Yosemite Falls, or visit Yosemite Village. The return journey includes another snack stop in the Central Valley before your 14-hour tour ends with hotel drop-off in San Francisco.

Private San Francisco - Yosemite Park Full-Day Tour

Escape the crowds of San Francisco on a full-day tour to Yosemite National Park. Heading east across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge offers great views of the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf, and the Golden Gate Bridge. En route to the park the tour crosses through the Central Valley, where you will stop at a fruit stand for some local produce. Famous for its rich volcanic soil, the Central Valley is the largest agricultural region in the United States. The section the tour drives through is best known for speciality fruits and nuts such as almonds, walnuts, cherries, and strawberries. After this quick rest stop, you will enter the rolling foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Continuing into the mountains brings you to California gold country and the gold rush town of Groveland before the tour winds its way into Yosemite National Park. On your 1.5-hour narrated coach tour of Yosemite's glaciated valley, you will see famous waterfalls and rock formations including Yosemite Falls, the tallest waterfall in North America. Continue on past 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. After the tour, you will stop for the afternoon near the base of Yosemite Falls. If you have not already picked up picnic supplies, there are many options for getting lunch in the park. You will have 3-4 hours of free time to explore the valley as you choose. You can walk to the base of Yosemite Falls, check out the visitor center, visit the Ansel Adams Gallery, stop in at the Ahwahnee Hotel, rent a cruiser bike, or hike some of the trails that originate from the valley. Although you could easily spend 3 weeks in Yosemite, the 3 hours you get on your own is enough time to understand why Yosemite is one of America's most popular national parks.
