Small-Group Yosemite Tour from San Francisco
From US$149,00
Overview
Even with limited time, a trip to Yosemite is worth the effort, and the logistics are easy with this small-group tour. Travel from San Francisco to the national park, where you’ll see landmarks including Yosemite Valley, Half Dome and Yosemite Falls, along with native wildlife. This trip combines a guided tour with free time to explore on your own for a personalized visit to one of California’s top destinations.
What to Expect
After morning pickup at your San Francisco hotel, settle in for a comfortable 4.5-hour drive across the Central Valley. Stop for refreshments in one of the US’s largest farming regions, then continue through California Gold Rush territory to Yosemite National Park.

Get oriented first with a vehicle tour of Yosemite Valley. See rock climbers scaling the walls of El Capitan; get photo ops of Half Dome, Bridalveil Falls, and Yosemite Fall; and look over the entire Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View.

Enjoy stops for photo ops of the granite rock formations, forest, wildlife, and towering waterfalls, and have access to areas that big tour buses can’t navigate.

Purchase lunch, then have three hours of free time to hike, rent a bike, view exhibits at the visitor’s center or Ansel Adams Gallery, or relax at the historical Ahwahnee Hotel.

Your tour ends with return to your departure point.

Disappointing and not worth the premium paid for a small group

The only reason I'm giving it a 2 is because Ariel was very nice and did what she could to ensure our comfort. So many things wrong with this tour. The "roadside fruit stand" was a grocery store. There was little commentary throughout the 4...More

Clearly better tours of Yosemite available

We paid a premium for a small group experience and were very disappointed. The bus is old and there was no commentary or explanation of the trip whatsoever for the 5 hours to Yosemite or the 5 hours from Yosemite. We were dropped off in...More

Hello there Ian, we are so sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations. One day in Yosemite is definitely a short period of time to see all that the park has to offer - we wish we could get to the park faster...More

Just Okay

There are many tours offered from San Francisco to Yosemite and, like you, I did my best to find the best one. The tour overall wasn't bad; however, it was not worth the premium I paid over the competitors' pricing and the description wasn't entirely...More
