Day 1 San Francisco-Yosemite National Park-San Francisco(351 miles)

This Yosemite 1-Day Tour maximizes the time you spend in Yosemite National Park by starting early. This is the only Yosemite Tour that enables you to cover both theYosemite Valley & the Giant Sequoiasin one day. We will also spend more than 5 hours inside Yosemite National Park, more than any other single Yosemite day tour from inSan Francisco.

When going through Yosemite Valley, we'll stop to seeEl Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Inspiration Point (otherwise known as Tunnel View), and Yosemite Village.After a 1 hour lunch break at the Yosemite Lodge, we'll drive to a higher altitude and to a lesser traveled part ofthe national park.

Here, we'll stop beneath the Giant Sequoia Tree Grove and see the world's largest living organisms. After a 2 mile (1 mile each way) hike to see the Giant Sequoia Trees, and a full day in the fresh Yosemite air, we'll finally head back to San Francisco, where our bus will drop travelers off at directly at their hotel.

Winter Months Note: The Giant Sequoias hike depends on snow levels and trail conditions from October to April, so the route and itinerary may be changed due to snow depth, road conditions, construction projects and detours and it cannot be guaranteed.

    Our guide Denise was great, I was concerned about the long trip as I easily feel motion sickness, but she was a very smooth driver! She gave us lots of facts and stories about California, which made the trip feel not that lengthy. I was worried it would be a bit of a crazy thing to do in one day, but it was not tiring at all and I am so glad I did it! Everything was so nicely organised, and we managed to see all the most scenic views from the park.

    Excelente! El tour fue fantástico, la agencia muy puntual, nos llevaron a todos los lugares descritos a excpeción de Giant Sequoias (Por ser temporada de invierno) al final nos llevaron a las afueras de la ciudad de San Francisco para poder apreciar la ciudad de noche, una fantástica vista. Nuestro guía fue en todo momento atento, carismático y divertido. Realmente vale la pena visitar este hermoso lugar.

    We did the Yosemite and Giant Sequoias Tour with Denise and were blown away. Denise was a fantastic guide. Her knowledge and her enthusiasm was infectious. The tour was a long day but Denise made it thoroughly enjoyable. Denise was also a safe and smooth driver.

    Fantastic tour for tourists who have short time. Covered all the important points, with some time left for activities like hiking, etc. Pick-up was on time and Gino our tourist was very helpful and considerate. I would recommend more pick-up/drop points in suburban areas like Fremont or nearer to BART station.

    We had Travis as a tour guide and he was wonderful! No one in our group was looking forward to being on a bus most of the day but we had a lot of laughs, great incites on everything he was showing us and also he knew a lot about California. It's nice to know fun facts about the place you visit. If we did this again we would try and stay at Yosemite for at least 1 night because there is just so much to see. But I really think Travis made the experience better

    I recommend this tour!
