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 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.

Simply amazing trip & guide

The one day tour was just amazing, breathtaking and unforgettable. Our guide Denise (hope that was her Name 😬) was very kind and had a perfect knowledge of everything. She started giving some trivia about San Francisco when we were driving out of town and...More

Lovely National Park, disappointing communication

The tour: I did a 3 day Yosemite Park tour with 2 nights in the tent cabin accommodation. Essentially it’s the same as the 1 day tour, with a 2 day break in the middle for you to do your own thing. Pros: the bus...More

Gino was hilarious!

Let me start off with the not so good parts of this tour as there are far less of them than positives. The bus was a bit old looking and the suspension was basically non-existant. I have experienced more uncomfortable rides in my life so...More

Great Park.......poor tour company.

We really enjoyed the park which is quite spectacular but not being in a third-rate, poorly maintained old school bus masquerading as a tour bus. The bus had no air-conditioning or adequate ventilation, dirty, poor suspension etc. The time allowed to get from the bus...More
