Don’t let time constraints keep you from making the trip to Yosemite National Park from San Francisco. A 1-day trip lets you visit the park’s major attractions such as Half Dome, Tuolumne Grove, and El Capitan—and still make it back to the city in time for dinner.
What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup from your select San Francisco hotel or central meeting point. Head out of the city and through historic Gold Rush towns en route to the Sierra Nevada—commentary from your guide makes the 4-hour drive fly by.

Upon arrival, take a 1-hour hike past some of the oldest and largest redwood trees in the world at Tuolumne Grove (weather permitting). Snap a photo inside a tunneled-out tree, or see how many people it takes to wrap arms around a trunk.

Continue to Inspiration Point for an unbeatable view of Yosemite Valley. Look out for expert rock climbers scaling the world-class cliffs of Half Dome and El Capitan, and in the springtime, see the 2,400 foot-tall (740 meter) cascade of Yosemite Falls.

Spend an hour dining or exploring the park on your own before reconvening with your guide for the return to San Francisco.

Please note: Some itinerary items are weather dependent, and itinerary may be adapted to make the most of Yosemite during different seasons. The giant sequoias are best visited between May and October, as winter ice and snow may prevent access during the rest of the year.

A great day!

An opportunity not to be missed when staying in SF if you have a day to spare. A long day sure but well worth it and our guide Jake was brilliant. Just the right balance of information, humour and enthusiasm for his City and the...More

Very very long...

Beware this tour is ridiculously long. Left at 6:20am and got back to the city at 10:00pm. Mostly on the bus.

Winter Wonderland in the middle of April

Excellent trip with Denise. She was very helpful and informative and caring too. The national park is truly majestic and awe inspiring. Had a day of heavy snow which is unusual for the month of April. Highly recommended.

Some trails are accessible, not all of them are. The main trails are wheelchair accessible to a point. It's still worth a visit though :)
