Yosemite in a Day Tour from San Francisco
From US$169.00
Low Price Guarantee
See Yosemite National Park’s iconic natural wonders on this convenient mini-bus tour that saves time and energy. Let someone else handle the drive, and visit some of the park’s best sights in just one day. See giant redwoods, El Capitan, and Half Dome, plus scenic spots along the way, hearing commentary from your guide about each location. A small-group size means plenty of personal attention.
What to Expect
Your morning starts with a pickup from a select San Francisco hotel. Board the minibus, settle in for the drive, and enjoy the scenery while you cross the Bay Bridge. Stop for a snack before continuing to the Sierra Nevada foothills and Gold Country.
Enter Yosemite National Park via Groveland, making a quick stop for a guided hike among sequoia redwoods. Then, stop at Tunnel View for photo ops of Bridalveil Fall, Half Dome, and El Capitan before continuing to Yosemite Valley.
Get close enough to El Capitan to spot climbers scaling its sheer face, and move on to Half Dome and Yosemite Falls.
After some free time to purchase lunch (own expense) or explore the falls or Yosemite Village, meet with your driver for the journey back. Make a short stop in the Central Valley for a snack before getting dropped off at your hotel.

Should be but there are bears around. You can take food etc but if you were camping you’d need to seal it up, same goes for leaving food in cars etc. Didn’t see any in my trip though and had picnic etc.
