Your hotel is located at the base of Yosemite Falls - the waterfall that gave the hotel its name!

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.

Terrific two days

Our driver Rourke, was excellent. He was very considerate, stopping at various places on the way to Yosemite National Park for breakfast and lunch. He was very knowledgeable about the Park, wildlife and vegetation. He allowed members of the group to walk at their own pace and always waited for the slower ones to catch up. Everybody was able to do what best suited their ability. A most enjoyable trip.

Great Trip to see Yosemite!

The way to go if you want to see the park and do some easy walking. It’s a long drive from San Francisco- this tour allows for stops and an overnight rest, hence lots of time to enjoy the sights of the park. Don’t miss the Ahwahnee (Magestic) Hotel (have a beverage in their historic bar) and the Ansel Adams Gallery. The free shuttle in the park takes you everywhere on the valley floor in a loop- hop on and hop off. Loved the Mountaineering School Shop, walk to Vernal Falls, and of course the Park Service Visitor Center. Driver stopped at good points for photos and groceries, was very knowledgeable and was a safe driver. I would use this tour company again- worth the extra cost.
