Day 1 San Francisco - Yosemite National Park - Fresno(235 miles)

Passengers will be picked up in the Bay Area in the morning. From there, we will head to Yosemite National Park. Sights we will see include the Tunnel View, Bridalveil Falls, Yosemite Falls, the Merced River, and the famous rock formations, El Captain and the Half Dome. The day ends with an overnight stay in Fresno.

Yosemite National Park in central California is best known for the amazing granite cliffs of the Yosemite Valley as well as the towering Yosemite Falls and Sequoias. Millions of people every year journey to this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Always Visit
    If the wind is strong enough, the cascading waters of Bridal Veil Falls appear to be falling sideways, making this 617-foot waterfall one of the most popular natural attractions in Yosemite.
  • Always Visit
    Even the most experienced rock climbers find difficulty on the treacherous slopes of El Capitan, the world's largest granite monolith. The summit can be reached by a hiking trail out of Yosemite Valley.

    Once considered insurmountable, Yosemite's Half Dome is a granite formation, one of the park's most recognizable attractions. A steep trail now leads to the summit, but the journey is arduous, so those wishing to reach it should come prepared.
  • Always Visit
    The Merced River cuts through Yosemite National Park on its route from Nevada to Central California. Visitors to the park can enjoy hiking along the river banks or rafting down its rapids.
  • Always Visit
    Tunnel View is a scenic outlook in Yosemite National Park, offering what is probably the most photographed view in the park as Yosemite Valley stretches out before the eyes.

The trip was well organized. Both our guides DJ, Mathew, and the driver were very friendly. Our guide gave us interesting information from time to time about California, and the places that we visited which made the trip worth while. It would have been very nice if we could have spent more time in Yosemite. My overall experience was very satisfying and worth the money.
