Highlights
Travel round trip from San Francisco to Yosemite in a single day
See the park’s most famous attractions, Half Dome and El Capitan
Enjoy free time to explore Yosemite Valley on your own
Ride through historic gold mining towns and into the Sierra Nevada mountains
Guided commentary helps the long bus ride fly by
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 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 Glacier 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 time 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.

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
During winter months, temperatures in Yosemite can vary drastically to the ones in San Francisco. Therefore, it is recommend to wear winter clothes, especially shoes or boots with rubber soles and treads
California law requires tour guests to bring a car safety seat for all children under 8 years and under 4' 9" (1.4 meters) in height. Any guest that does not provide their child's safety seat at the time of the tour and does not inform the tour operator may not be allowed to board the tour and will not be subject to refund.

The Giant Sequoias Grove is located at a higher elevation and the hike is dependent on trail conditions, especially from October through May. Ice and snow might make the trail unsafe to hike. The decision of whether it is safe to go on the hike will be made on a day by day basis. Therefore, a visit cannot be guaranteed. 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.

Long day went by fast
Wonderful trip. The stops went by really fast so plan accordingly. We did not go all the way down the Great Sequoias trail to talk timing there. You’re not getting a long hike anywhere, even the two hour stop went quickly. We were worried about rest room stops but ended up on a last minute swap to a bus which was awesome. Geno and Leo made a great team leading the day.

Odd side note: we stopped twice at Raley’s grocery. Lunch we got sandwiches to go: very good. Because of Covid protocols, at dinner we couldn’t eat at any fast food (KFC, BK, Wendy’s) so we reluctantly got Raley’s fried chicken. But again, really good!

Our trip was so much fun. We had Denise as our tour guide and she was excellent. She is very knowledgeable not only about Yosemite park and the history but also about all the places we visited and the city. She made us feel safe while driving around the mountains. I will definitely recommend this tour to family and friends and for sure will encourage them to try to have Denise.

Fantastic guide Alberto
Alberto was a fantastic tour operator and guide. He was doing both the driving and talking part of the tour and a great multi taster. He made the long drive entertaining and was kind enough to let us take some extended breaks at scenic sights when we were held up with construction traffic on the way back from Yosemite.

Highly recommended!

A Great Day Out
Apr 2021 • Solo
A wonderful way to see Yosemite if you're short on time and keen on exploring. I've wanted to do this trip for some time, and was very glad I finally had the chance to go.

Our guide Denise was full of local knowledge all through the trip, and offered helpful tips on what to see and do. You have ample free time to see the sights once you get to the park.

The coach ride was comfortable and smooth. Early pickup meant for a long day, but oh so worth it! Was so happy to see things opening up again.
