Yosemite and Glacier Point Day Tour

Your day begins with pickup in either Fresno, Oakhurst, or Fish Camp aboard a comfortable touring vehicle. From here, enjoy a scenic journey to Yosemite, entering through the park’s Southgate entrance. Stop at Chinquapin and Glacier Point, an overlook offering remarkable views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and Yosemite’s high country. After a short walk, you can gaze over the valley, including Curry Village and the renowned Majestic Yosemite Hotel (formerly the Ahwahnee), and take in picture-perfect views of the surrounding mountaintops. Between spring and fall, you also have the option of hiking Glacier Point’s 4-Mile Trail, which ends on Southside Drive. From here, simply hop on a shuttle or continue across the Swinging Bridge to Yosemite Valley Lodge, where you’ll meet back up with your guide. For those who’d prefer to stay on the bus, you'll make your way down to the Yosemite Valley, starting from the Tunnel View to take in spectacular views of Bridalveil Fall, El Capitan, The Chapel, Sentinel Bridge, Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. The group will then break for lunch, along with an easy walk to the base of Yosemite Falls. You’ll also have time to peruse the souvenir gift shops. After dining, you'll pay a visit to the meadows in front of El Capitan to see if anyone is rock climbing, an extremely popular park activity. Next, continue on with a drive alongside the Merced River and learn a bit about President Theodore Roosevelt’s 3-night camping trip with naturalist John Muir, who successfully lobbied for the creation of Yosemite National Park. Your return trip includes a stop at The Pioneer Village History Center for some exploring and also a visit to the historical landmark Wawona Hotel, a perfect place for viewing the park’s young sequoias. The tour concludes with a ride back to either Fresno or Oakhurst.

Yosemite and Glacier Point Tour from Los Angeles by Train

Hop on the Amtrak train from Los Angeles and enjoy the ride through California's great Central Valley, on the way to Fresno. Once there, check into your hotel and then take some free time, perhaps doing some gaming in the nearby casino or eating at one of the many fine restaurants in proximity to the hotel. In the morning, get shuttled to the natural wonderland known as Yosemite National Park. Pass through the small towns of Coarsegold and Oakhurst and then enter the park through the South Gate. Stop and get a great photo op of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and Yosemite’s high country. Because of the smaller vehicle you're being transported in, visit parts of the park that are normally off limits to tours. Take a short walk to Glacier Point to get a commanding view of Vernal Falls, Nevada Falls and the Merced River, among other sites. Once at Glacier Point, consider doing the optional hike on the 4-Mile Trail, an easy preamble, ending at Yosemite Lodge where you'll re-unite with the group. Take a break for lunch and then continue exploring enchanting Yosemite Valley, lingering in the meadows below El Capitan and then visiting the historic Wawona Hotel. After a day of discovering incredible Yosemite, head back to Fresno to catch the train to Los Angeles.
