Yosemite National Park day trip
From US$149.00
Getting to Yosemite from San Francisco can be quite a challenge unless you rent a car, and even then you must navigate unfamiliar roads. This Yosemite tour from San Francisco takes you to the national park with round-trip transport, so you can relax on the long drive. Plus, once there, you get about four hours to either take a guided hike or explore independently at your own pace.
What to Expect

This Yosemite tour starts with a San Francisco pickup on Post Street across from the Westin St. Francis Hotel. Get comfortable aboard your luxury vehicle for the approximately 4-hour ride to the US national park.

Once you arrive, you decide what to do. Choose to go on a guided hike through the park or explore independently. If you choose to wander on your own, you can visit the Ansel Adams Gallery, grab lunch at Ahwahnee (own expense), stroll along the Merced River, or rent a bike to ride around (own expense).

Your time in Yosemite National Park ends about four hours later when you board your vehicle for the ride back to San Francisco. Your day concludes with drop-off where your tour originated.

Fantastic tour to Yosemite National Park. Chablis was amazing as our driver and photographer. A special photo opportunity at the end of the tour was a great bonus.
