Escape to the mountains for two full days of hiking, sightseeing and exploring in the amazing natural wilderness of Yosemite National Park. Trek through Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, and the Giant Sequoias (weather permitting), and spend the night in the heart of Yosemite Valley at your choice of accommodations (Yosemite Valley Lodge, Majestic Hotel, Half Dome Village), or at Cedar Lodge along the Merced River.
On this tour of Yosemite National Park from San Francisco, you'll have two days to explore, giving you more time and flexibility to see all the sights. Your guide stays in the hotel with the group, providing valuable knowledge of the history of Yosemite and a more personal experience of the park throughout your trip.
The two days in Yosemite National Park are divided between time in Yosemite Valley, and exploring the outlying areas of the park. In the valley, you will visit and photograph famous highlights such as Yosemite Falls (the tallest waterfall in North America), El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridalveil Fall, and Inspiration Point. Beyond the valley, you will take a trip to the awe-inspiring Glacier Point and enjoy a hike among the Giant Sequoias (weather permitting).
This tour of Yosemite arrives back in San Francisco at approximately 9:00pm on the second day. Slip away to Yosemite park for two full days of fun and exploration!

Our guide was friendly and informative. I was using a cane for a bad knee and she showed me every consideration.
This trip is definitely worth it. Yosemite is stunning and the itinerary allowed two full days of sightseeing and hiking. We were given plenty of information on options for hikes within the Valley. Our guide Matt was knowledgeable, pleasant and a safe, smooth driver. An added bonus was the playlist in the van (it wasn't too loud though). Passengers with hearing problems or difficulty understanding English would be better sitting near the front as there's no microphone for the commentary. Take plenty of water if it's hot as some of the stops of day 1 have no running water
It was incredible experience in awesome nature with a nice guide. She customized the tour depend on participants' needs.
Our family of four just returned from the two-day tour of Yosemite. Our guide Emma was very knowledgeable, organized, and friendly. There was a lot of traffic coming into the park, but she made sure that we were able to experience many beautiful sights. The overnight at the lodge was great! Beauty surrounds you on this trip. Just amazing!
If I could give this tour six stars, I would. The park is spectacular. The ride was comfortable. I give a lot of the credit to our tour guide, Roark, who was knowledgeable, friendly and sensitive to the needs of those of us on the tour. If you have ever been to Yosemite, you know there are no words to sufficiently describe its majesty. With only two days, this tour captured its wonders.
My wife and I had an incredible time. Kate was our guide. I cannot begin to discribe how wonderful and knowldgeable she was about the area. Unfortunetly it rained and snowed on our second day, but it's not like they can control the weather. Awesome trip!! I would recomend this trip to anyone!
The tour was very comprehensive and gave us a good snapshot of most of what the park has to offer. Overnight accommodation at the Majestic was sensational. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative, though gave the impression he was making it up as he went along. We would have liked to know at the start of each day exactly what we were going to see and do. Two of our tour members got lost during a hike after taking a wrong turn, and this set us back 90 minutes on the second day, but this was not the tour guide's fault. We would recommend that all tour guests download the offline map of Yosemite into Google Maps on their phones before leaving on the tour. Although there is no cellphone voice or data coverage in most of the park, GPS still works and this would avoid visitors getting lost. The minibus was a little cramped and seriously lacking in legroom, otherwise OK.
It was raining very heavy when we did the trip and we weren't prepared for that. Our tour guide is very prepared though. It would be nice if the tour company advised us on clothing requirements, e.g. extra set of clothes/shoes for changing due to weather condition, bring a rain jacket, wear rain pants etc. Yosemite national park gift shop doesn't sell rain jackets we found it in the hotel at night but was soaking and freezing for day 1. The company insists on only taking small overnight bag but the van has more than enough space for bigger bags and we technically need 2-3 sets of clothes/layers due to the weather condition. We rang the company for confirmation prior and they could have advised us taking rain jackets/clothes etc. The tour would be a lot more enjoyable if we didn't have to wear wet clothes in freezing tempature for a day.
The park was great! The guide was so so. Nice enough but not very informative. The transportation was inadequate. To tightand not enough leg room for such a log ride. The motel was horrible. Rude staff, hot tub broken, worst steak I ever had and I'm 60.
The guide was nice however the trip felt a bit....nothing. there was no enthusiasm about what we were seeing. I felt like after 2 days I hadn't really done much there at all.
