Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your Yosemite adventure starts in San Francisco, where you’ll depart the morning of Day 1. For three days, you’ll enjoy the natural beauty of one of the most famed national parks in the US, where highlights like Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, mountain lakes and towering sequoia trees have impressed travelers from all over, including nature photographer Ansel Adams.

    Bring your active wear, as opportunities for hiking, swimming, biking and even rafting are available. You’ll explore some of the park with your guide to check out off-the-beaten-path trails and sights unseen by most who venture here, plus have free time to enjoy the park at your leisure (additional costs may apply).

    Two nights of tent camping are included; tents are provided but sleeping bags are not (you may rent one if you are not bringing your own). Meals, drinks and snacks can be purchased on your own.

    • Important: Please note if you need a sleeping bag and any dietary requirements in the 'Special Requirements' field when booking
    • Camping
    • Camping is easy, but cooperation is important. Don't worry if you've never camped before; many people haven't. You will be supplied with all the camping equipment necessary for a trip of this nature, using quality tents, camping and cooking equipment. Everybody is expected to participate in setting up and breaking down the camp, and the professional guides are available to attend to your needs to ensure a positive camping experience. We camp at the best campsites, with hot showers and modern facilities. Swimming is available nearby. During booking, please note if you will need a sleeping bag
    • Tents
    • We use 4-person tents but only have two people in each. In the case of odd numbers in your party, there is a chance you will be paired with another person of the same gender from a different party.
    • Food
    • You will be provided with the food, but not the chefs. You guys are the cooks, waiters, dishwashers and, of course, the guests. On leaving the city, we stop at a supermarket and buy everything we need. The fare is a mixture of chicken, beef and vegetarian, all-you-can-eat and very tasty. Most people eat better with us than they have done previously on their travels. Please inform us of any dietary requirements/concerns at the time of booking.
    • Transportation
    • Tour operator uses comfortable 15-passenger vans with dual air-conditioning and stereo sound. Our vans are fueled by biodiesel, a vegetable oil-based diesel fuel, to promote green business. All of the vans have large roof racks for your luggage and the camping equipment.

    • On your journeys, you will need sneakers or hiking boots, shorts, T-shirts, swimwear, sun protection, a water bottle, flashlight and something warmer in case there is a change in weather.
    • Weather
    • June through September in Yosemite is hot and sunny with occasional afternoon showers. May and October days are warm with cooler nights. As with all mountain environments, weather can vary quickly, so a layer of warm clothing is a good idea.
    • This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund
    • This experience requires a minimum number of travelers. If it’s canceled because the minimum isn’t met, you’ll be offered a different date/experience or a full refund

    With the 3-day trip, we were lucky to be guided by Rourke. The landscapes are magnificent and the atmosphere is soothing. Beautiful walking, pretty mountain and a very involved and pleasant guide. This allows you to fill up and disconnect. Thanks for all!

    I joined the trip beginning of October. It was one of the final tours scheduled for the season, but we were lucky with the weather. We hiked and saw fantastic views, and were also lucky enough to see a bear and some deers from the car. Our guide Kate was enthusiastic and

    I did the 3 day camping tour of Yosemite in June. Yosemite itself is stunning, and purely because of that I had a fabulous time.  But the actual tour experience doesn't live up to the destination.  First, the guide (I think his name was Matt from memory) was over 45 mins late
