Itinerary

This Yosemite tour starts with a pickup from Union Square in San Francisco. Get comfortable aboard your luxury vehicle for the approximately 4-hour ride to the US national park.

Once you arrive, you decide what to do. Choose to go on a guided hike through the park or explore independently. If you choose to wander on your own, you can visit the Ansel Adams Gallery, grab lunch at Ahwahnee (own expense), stroll along the Merced River, or rent a bike to ride around (own expense).

Your time in Yosemite National Park ends about four hours later when you board your vehicle for the ride back to San Francisco. Your day concludes with drop-off in Union Square.
