Yosemite and Giant Sequoias One-Day Tour from San Francisco

About this experience

What you'll do:

When it comes to cliffs and trees, Yosemite National Park truly is the Land of the Giants. Some notables that you’ll see during your one-day experience include El Capitan, standing at just over 3,600 (1,100 meters) feet from base to summit, it stands as tall as three Empire State Buildings stacked on top of each other! You’ll also have a chance to see the tallest waterfall in North America in Yosemite Falls; Bridalveil Falls; and, of course, the jewel of the Sierras, the Giant Sequoias standing silent sentry, watching over the park as they have for thousands of years. Nature has never looked so good!

Your Yosemite Giant Sequoias Tour begins with a pickup in San Francisco, then heads east crossing through California’s fertile San Joaquin Valley and into the rocky Sierra Nevada mountains. See 170-year-old mining towns and learn the colorful history of the region.

After entering Yosemite National Park, we’ll make our way to a scene made famous by photographer Ansel Adams. Take a moment at Tunnel View. Capture yourself with El Capitan, Half Dome, Sentinel Dome, Glacier Point, and Cathedral Peak as your background.

(In winter, when conditions on the Tuolumne Grove trail are snow-covered or unsafe, we substitute this experience with other attractions)

After having free time in the valley to take a hike around Sentinel Meadow or have a picnic lunch at the base of towering Yosemite Falls, you’ll re-board the tour bus to head back to San Francisco, with a couple more photo stops on the way out of the park. A perfect end to a perfect day.

Why we love it for your party:

  • Perfect for nature lovers (Prepared to be blown away by awe-inspiring valley views)
  • Unique & memorable (Have your own Yosemite Valley adventure)
  • Bucket-list bash (Take a noment with more iconic monuments, including the El Capitan Meadow to learn more about the world’s largest granite monolith and its climbing culture)
  • Relax & regroup (Feel the quiet grandeur of Giant Sequoias)
