Overview
Escape San Francisco on a 14-hour tour of Yosemite, and visit some of the iconic points in the park, such as El Capitan and Yosemite Valley. Savor a seasonal lunch, and walk along one of the park’s wonderful trails with an expert naturalist guide.
What to Expect
Explore the most magnificent national park in the United States on a full-day tour of Yosemite National Park, and discover the home to hundreds of wildlife species, thousands of plant species, countless waterfalls, and more than 1,000 square miles of wild terrain.

Travel by luxury vehicle to Yosemite Valley, the scene of an epic clash of glacier and granite millions of years ago that produced a landscape of sheer cliffs, glacier-carved granite domes, and waterfalls that are among the world’s tallest. Revel in Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, and other lesser-known highlights.

Your guide will peel away the layers of natural history that formed the valley as you look out for deer, bears, and other wildlife. Savor a gourmet, family-style lunch, before you continue your tour based on the conditions of the day and interests of your group.

Your Yosemite experience will be tailored to the season and the interests of the group. In the spring and early summer, take advantage of peak water levels to feel the mist from the Park’s best waterfalls and explore the placid shores of the Merced River. As warmer summer temperatures set in, seek the shade of giant sequoia trees in Tuolumne Grove or the cool alpine waters of Tenaya Lake. When snow blankets Yosemite in the winter, enjoy lighter tourist traffic and spend more time in the heart of Yosemite Valley on a guided snowshoe across the meadows or a walk along the valley floor trail.

Throughout the tour, hear stories from your naturalist guide about Yosemite National Park, from its designation as one of America’s earliest natural preserves to its current status as an international symbol of conservation. Learn about the Native Americans who lived off these lands, and conservationists like John Muir who sought to preserve it for future generations.
