  • 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 took the Overnight Yosemite tour because I wanted to see the awesome NP and do a few hikes. Cheaper to choose the overnight tour with NO accommodation. Book the accommodation yourself to save costs. I am solo traveller and it worked well I had Denise to Yosemite NP and Dustin

We are an Australian couple who had tour guide Denise for our tour to Yosemite. I can not express just how incredible she made the whole experience. By far the BEST tour guide I have ever had! She is knowledgeable, kind and most of all, incredibly passionate about what she does.
