Small-Group Yosemite Tour from San Francisco
US$149.00
Overview
Even with limited time, a trip to Yosemite is worth the effort, and the logistics are easy with this small-group tour. Travel from San Francisco to the national park, where you’ll see landmarks including Yosemite Valley, Half Dome and Yosemite Falls, along with native wildlife. This trip combines a guided tour with free time to explore on your own for a personalized visit to one of California’s top destinations.
What to Expect
After morning pickup at your San Francisco hotel, settle in for a comfortable 4.5-hour drive across the Central Valley. Stop for refreshments in one of the US’s largest farming regions, then continue through California Gold Rush territory to Yosemite National Park.

Get oriented first with a vehicle tour of Yosemite Valley. See rock climbers scaling the walls of El Capitan; get photo ops of Half Dome, Bridalveil Falls, and Yosemite Fall; and look over the entire Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View.

Enjoy stops for photo ops of the granite rock formations, forest, wildlife, and towering waterfalls, and have access to areas that big tour buses can’t navigate.

Purchase lunch, then have three hours of free time to hike, rent a bike, view exhibits at the visitor’s center or Ansel Adams Gallery, or relax at the historical Ahwahnee Hotel.

Your tour ends with return to your departure point.

Well worth it!!

I was unsure whether this tour would leave enough time and even though you could spend days in Yosemite, it was a perfect day trip. If you haven't got too much time in SF but want to see some natural beauty this is the trip...More
