This Yosemite 1-Day Tour maximizes the time you spend in Yosemite National Park by starting early. This is the only Yosemite Tour that enables you to cover both theYosemite Valley & the Giant Sequoiasin one day. We will also spend more than 5 hours inside Yosemite National Park, more than any other single Yosemite day tour from inSan Francisco.

When going through Yosemite Valley, we'll stop for around 3 hours to seeEl Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Inspiration Point (otherwise known as Tunnel View), and Yosemite Village.After a 1 hour lunch break at the Yosemite Lodge, we'll drive to a higher altitude and to a lesser traveled part ofthe national park.

Here, we'll stop beneath the Giant Sequoia Tree Grove and see the world's largest living organisms. After a 2-mile (1 mile per way) hike (around 1.5 hours) to see the Giant Sequoia Trees, and a full day in the fresh Yosemite air, we'll finally head back to San Francisco, where our bus will drop travelers off at directly at their hotel.

Winter Months Note: The Giant Sequoias hike depends on snow levels and trail conditions from October to May, so the route and itinerary may be changed due to snow depth, road conditions, construction projects and detours and it cannot be guaranteed.

  • It was an AMAZING trip! I highly recommend taking this tour if you do not have time to hike/camp at Yosemite. I took my parents here and they absolutely loved it. The tour guide, Denise, was an added charm to the whole trip. Her energy and enthusiasm added on to ours and made it all worthwhile!
