2-Day Yosemite National Park Tour from San Francisco

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Maximize your time in California’s favorite national park, and go deeper than a day trip allows on this 2-day wilderness adventure from San Francisco. Travel in a bio-diesel mini-coach and let your guide do all the driving so you can focus on the world-class scenery and famously photogenic views of park attractions like Yosemite Falls and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome.

    Split your time between the famous features of Yosemite Valley and the high country, and enjoy a mix of guided activities and leisure time to explore the park on your own. Enjoy a narrated drive through the valley when you first arrive, and hike, swim or bike around the base of Yosemite Falls. Stroll among ancient sequoia groves, and trek to the summit of Sentinel Dome of or Taft Point if you like.

    Choose from two different accommodation options to suit your style and budget. Spend the night in the heart of Yosemite Valley at your choice of accommodations (Yosemite Valley Lodge, Majestic Hotel, Half Dome Village). At Cedar Lodge, located just outside the park on the Merced River, enjoy an onsite pub, a private river beach, and access to indoor/outdoor pools and a hot tub.

    I have just completed a fantastic two day tour of the Yosemite National Park, guided by Jaimie. The scenery is amazing, we had time for two beautiful hikes and saw several highlights of the park. The accommodation at Cedar Lodge was very nice; friendly staff and good meals.

    The trip consists of a lot of driving, and even though the driver was very courteous, it would have been nice to include verbal history/stories to pass the time. With tip and meals, the trip is well over $1,000 for 2. I felt it was on the high end for what you get.

    Yosemite is a popular and remote place which contributes to the high prices within and around the park. As safety comes first we tell our guides to primarily focus on the road, and then secondly give as much interpretive information as safe along the way. Thank you for choosing us and hope you had a nice time overall.
