One of the most beautiful National Parks in the world...

No trip to San Francisco would be complete without a sightseeing tour to majestic Yosemite National Park, where you can see dramatic mountains, spectacular waterfalls and the renowned El Capitan rock face.

Our guide to Yosemite National Park in a Day

Explore the stunning sights of Yosemite National Park during this unforgettable adventure in the beauty of nature. Travel in a comfortable and climate-controlled coach, just about 200 miles east of San Francisco, and enjoy a wide range of beautiful photo opportunities along the scenic drive to Yosemite National Park.

The tour departs from San Francisco, with convenient pickup from your hotel in Downtown San Francisco, Union Square or Fisherman’s Wharf. We cross through California’s fertile scenery of San Joaquin Valley before climbing into the rocky Sierra Nevada mountains. Relax in your comfortable seat as you learn about the colorful gold rush history of the region. Soon we arrive at the world-famous and stunning Yosemite National Park, where you will witness some of the most amazing natural wonders, the towering granite monuments of Half Dome, Cathedral Peak and El Capitan.

Enjoy the ride down into Yosemite Valley where we will make a stop at Inspiration Point, a view of the valley made famous by Ansel Adams and hundreds of artists since. Take your best selfie with Sentinel Dome, Glacier Point, Cathedral Peak and Bridalveil Fall as your backdrop. You will have enough time at your leisure to grab a picnic lunch and check out the Ansel Adams Gallery or the Yosemite Valley Wilderness Center.

Yosemite Valley is also home to giant trees and more than 400 types of species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. The Lower Yosemite Falls, Mist and Meadow Loop trailheads are guaranteed to delight hikers of any age. Enjoy nature hikes in Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias and on the Meadow Loop Trail to the Swinging Bridge (weather and trail conditions permitting). The day at Yosemite concludes with another highlight at Valley View.

Take in the breathtaking views along the banks of the Merced River framed by El Capitan and the imposing spires of Cathedral Rocks before we say farewell to nature's grandeur that is Yosemite National Park. During your tour, your tour leader will provide useful information about the sights, sounds, and the history of these impressive natural wonders!
