However, while the trail might be closed, guests get to spend more time in Yosemite Valley. There you can see all the other great sights Yosemite has to offer, including El Capitan, Inspiration Point, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls and more.
  • Access to the Sequoia Grove can be difficult during winter months, generally October through April, and other activities may be substituted at the discretion of the guide.

I was looking for ways to get to Yosemite without driving myself, and came across Extranomical Tours. I booked with them directly and managed to arrange a 2-night stay at the Yosemite Valley Lodge. They were responsive over email and the booking process was relatively fuss free.

I paid in full for the 3 day tour to Yosemite. 3 days later they decide to tell me the accomodation isn't available for one of the days I was intending to go and asked if I wanted to cancel, after taking the payment. It has been a month since then and I still haven't received a

Becky, we regret the frustration that you've experienced. We have not been able to refund your card because, for security reasons, we do not retain guests' cc information. If you will call our office today (415-357-0700) and ask for Gary, I'll personally take the information we need and process your refund immediately. We DO want to get this right for you!

I booked a tour with Extranomical Tours for a Yosemite 3 day tour – dorm room for July 6th-8th 2019. I was picked up at the Hilton in Union Square after the transport was 20 minutes late for the scheduled arrival. The bus had seats that were dirty and smelled fowl and were in a

We were sad to hear that you were disappointed with your tour last week. Thank you for taking my call on Friday. Please know that your comments are taken seriously and that we use them to get better every day. Your primary issue was with the guide on the way to Yosemite. Gino is one of our most experienced (and highly rated) guides but we have passed your comment on so he be more careful with his pronunciation. We are also sensitive to your disappointment about the pace of the tour. We have concluded after many years of running our Total Yosemite Experience that our guests want to see the park's Giant Sequoias, waterfalls, and famous monuments. Doing so requires that we be timely with our scheduled stops. Most guests appreciate this, and we were sorry it didn't feel right to you. I know you told me that you'd already returned home but next time you are in San Francisco, please contact me at and I'll make sure you get our best (and at no charge!).

We took a 3 day Yosemite Tour from San Francisco(SF). Extranomical is not much of a tour company it is more like a travel arranger who picks up guests and drops them off to their destinations. They picked us up from SF and took us to Yosemite barely stopping at one photo stop of

We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your trip to Yosemite. Please call our SF office (415-357-0700) and ask for Gary so we can put things right. Readers of your review should know several things about the tour itinerary and logistics: 1) your first day included a 75-minute photo stop at the Tuolumne Giant Redwood trees and 3 additional exploration stops totaling about 3 hours, 2) as a courtesy to the other passengers on your return day, we let them, board, first so their personal possessions are not disturbed--most everyone is understanding about this, 3) all of our tour descriptions and tour itineraries inform overnight guests that their time in the Valley is their own free time and not guided, and 4) our tour coaches are smaller, more intimate transport and have limited space under the seats or in overheads for large suitcases--you had the opportunity when you booked to pay $50 for additional luggage and you did not accept that offer. Anyway, I hope this helps and that you otherwise enjoyed your time in beautiful Yosemite National Park.
