Overview
Don’t let time constraints keep you from making the trip to Yosemite National Park from San Francisco. A 1-day trip lets you visit the park’s major attractions such as Half Dome, Tuolumne Grove, and El Capitan—and still make it back to the city in time for dinner.
What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup from your select San Francisco hotel or central meeting point. Head out of the city and through historic Gold Rush towns en route to the Sierra Nevada—commentary from your guide makes the 4-hour drive fly by.

Upon arrival, take a 1-hour hike past some of the oldest and largest redwood trees in the world at Tuolumne Grove (weather permitting). Snap a photo inside a tunneled-out tree, or see how many people it takes to wrap arms around a trunk.

Continue to Inspiration Point for an unbeatable view of Yosemite Valley. Look out for expert rock climbers scaling the world-class cliffs of Half Dome and El Capitan, and in the springtime, see the 2,400 foot-tall (740 meter) cascade of Yosemite Falls.

Spend an hour dining or exploring the park on your own before reconvening with your guide for the return to San Francisco.

Please note: Some itinerary items are weather dependent, and itinerary may be adapted to make the most of Yosemite during different seasons. The giant sequoias are best visited between May and October, as winter ice and snow may prevent access during the rest of the year.

Tappinara, Thanks for touring to Yosemite with us last week. We guarantee satisfaction for all of our guests and, naturally, were so disturbed by your review that we launched an internal investigation to look into what happened. As you may have noticed, we have safety...More

With a nod to John Muir- Wow!

Exceeded all expectations. The weather was ideal, the crowds modest, the tour guides helpful, and the results were outstanding. The trail to the giant trees was a bit strenuous but only because of its steepness. One needs to be in shape and robust. Standing in...More

Hi, there was no bathroom on our bus, but the driver made a couple of comfort breaks on the journey to and from the Park.

Some trails are accessible, not all of them are. The main trails are wheelchair accessible to a point. It's still worth a visit though :)
