Yosemite in a Day Tour

Take a day-trip to the crown jewel of the National Park system

Located roughly a 4 ½-hour drive east of San Francisco, Yosemite Valley has mesmerized visitors with its natural grandeur of sky-high cliffs, waterfalls, pristine rivers, and magnificent redwood trees. Writers and artists, including world-renowned Ansel Adams, made their first visits during and after the time of the California Gold Rush.

Leaving early in the morning from San Francisco, our tour will take you across the Bay Bridge, through East Bay, and across California’s vast farm lands of the great California Central Valley. Once the bus reaches the Gold Country, the tour will take you into the hills of the Sierra Mountains and eventually into Yosemite National Park. Once you enter the park, there is a narrated tour where you’ll experience such sights as:

  • Bridalveil Falls
  • El Capitan
  • Half Dome
  • Merced River
  • Views from the valley floor

You will also enjoy two hours on your own inside the park where you can stop for a bite to eat, experience the Yosemite Tram Tour or walk to Yosemite Falls.
