Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your day's exploration of Yosemite National Park with pickup in Fresno, Oakhurst, or Fish Camp. Board your comfortable tour vehicle and settle in for the ride to Yosemite's Southgate entrance. 

    Make your first stop at Glacier Point and Chinquapin, a scenic overlook that provides sweeping views of the Yosemite High Country, Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and the Yosemite Valley. Embark on a short walk to get a more photo-worthy views of the Merced River, Ahwahnee Lodge, Curry Village, Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls.

    Those keen on hiking can take the option to trek down the 4-Mile Trail here, which ends on Southside Drive. Continue across the Swinging Bridge (or take a shuttle) to meet back with your tour group at the Yosemite Lodge. 

    Passengers who wish to remain on the bus will visit the Tunnel View to view Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Sentinel Bridge, El Capitan and Bridalveil Falls. Stop for a lunch break and walk to Yosemite Falls.

    Hang out in the meadows in front of El Capitan to watch the gravity-defying rock climbers, then drive along the Merced River to see the John Muir and President Roosevelt campsites. See the historic Wawona Hotel and explore the Pioneer Village History Center before heading back to Fresno or Oakhurst for drop-off.

    No, if you choose to do the hike you will miss the sites the others are viewing while you’re hiking.
