Full description

Experience both the Yosemite Valley and the Giant Sequoia Walk on this day tour. See why artists and poets have been inspired for generations by the breathtaking sceneries at the national park. Since 1890, the beautiful Yosemite National Park has been the jewel of America's National Parks, possessing some of the best-known landmarks in the world, such as the tallest waterfall in North America, Yosemite Falls. Have 5 to 6 hours to explore the stunning national park, and take in the majestic natural wonders, accompanied by a complimentary audio-guided tour. See the spectacular Half Dome and El Capitan, two of the most frequently climbed cliffs in the world. It is also home to several groves of stunning Giant Sequoia trees, the largest trees on earth. The Giant Sequoia Walk is along 1 mile (1.5 km) of paved trail with a 400 ft (120 m) incline, snow depth permitting.

On a group tour, view stunning panoramas, go on walks, and even hike a little, before returning to San Francisco. Or if you prefer, upgrade to a private tour for your group only.

Don't hesitate. It is expensive for a group of 4 or 5, but it is a long trip. A pretty dangerous drive up the mountains. The tour guide is an experienced driver. It is a hassle-free experience. You get to see breathtaking views, and the trail will be one for the memory books. Although, this is a more self-guided tour Ben directed us to where we needed to go. He answered all questions when we got to our destinations. He gave lots of fun facts, and a wealth of knowledge that my children and I enjoyed. He is an experienced driver that knows the route well. He is a charismatic tour guide. We appreciate Ben he made our experience that much more pleasant.
