Full description
The Total Yosemite Experience is the only 1-day tour to combine the Yosemite Valley and a Giant Sequoia Walk all in the same day. See why artists and poets have been inspired for generations. Since 1890, beautiful Yosemite National Park has been the jewel of America's National Parks, possessing some of the best–known landmarks in the world, such as the tallest waterfall in North America, Yosemite Falls. You'll have 5-6 hours to explore the stunning national park, and take in the majestic natural wonders, accompanied by a complimentary audio guided tour. Yosemite is home to the spectacular Half Dome & El Capitan, 2 of the most frequently climbed cliffs in the world. It is also home to several groves of stunning Giant Sequoia trees, the largest trees on earth. The Giant Sequoia Walk is along 1 mile (1.5 km) of paved trail with a 400 ft (120 m) incline, snow depth permitting. Experiencing Yosemite in a friendly group, you will see stunning panoramas, go on walks, and even hike a little, before returning to San Francisco. Or if you prefer, you can upgrade to a private tour for your group only.

    Book this trip! You won’t regret it. It was a great break from seeing the sights of the city to take in one of the most beautiful of our National Parks. Yes, it’s a bit of a drive. Yes, it’s a tricky hike to see the giant sequoias. But it is all so worth it. Ben was a great driver/guide. Such a phenomenal experience.

    Denise Frank was a great and lovely tour guide. But there was a few issues with the bus. The speaker was broken we couldn’t hear a lot of information she was giving us during the ride. But yes, she gives a lot of information, she’s amazing! Also, the bus fan wasn’t good. Blowed us too much on our head.

    This was the perfect intro to Yosemite! Our bus driver Chris was amazing and got around all those curves, hills, mountains like a pro! It was a safe and smooth ride throughout. Jason was a personable, anecdotal, and informative guide. The two of them together made this trip even better than I could imagine, coming from someone who wouldn't know where to begin in the vastness and beauty of such a remarkable national park. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to visit Yosemite and the giant sequoias.
