Private Tour to Yosemite National Park from San Francisco

    What to Expect
    Start your full-day tour with early morning pickup at your San Francisco hotel.

    Travel in a comfortable and spacious 4-wheel drive SUV that is well-equipped to handle both city streets and mountain roads. Head east across the Bay Bridge, through Oakland, the East Bay suburbs, and into the Central Valley. Stop to stretch your legs about halfway through the long drive, and have the option to visit fruit stands along the way. Then continue into the Sierra Nevada foothills, passing the gold rush town of Groveland en route to Yosemite.

    In Yosemite Valley, your guide takes you to lookout points and scenic areas where you can view landmarks such as El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridalveil Fall, Yosemite Falls, and the Merced River. You'll have free time near Yosemite Lodge to hike, see a waterfall up close, or swim in the river (conditions permitting). The lodge offers drinks, food, and souvenirs for purchase.

    Opt to leave The Valley early and visit The Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoia Trees (depending on the season).

    After several hours, start your return drive to San Francisco where your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the evening.
