About
Travel in the comfort of a private SUV with an expert Northern California born owner-operator. Clear English spoken. I have driven over 600 tours to Yosemite National Park over the last 10 years. Get a more personalized level of service not always available on crowded vans. Don't waste daylight picking up or dropping off other groups around San Francisco and Oakland. Pass the California Central Valley, Sierra Foothills and Gold Country on the way to Yosemite. In the park, stops are made where you may photograph El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridalveil Fall & Yosemite Falls (seasonal). Free time is given near Yosemite Lodge at the Falls to explore, shop and snack. Swim in the Merced River, get in a hike or take an easy walk to the base of Yosemite Falls.  Seasonal: You may also choose to leave The Valley 90 minutes early and visit The Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoia Trees (Hike 2.5 miles/4 km).

What to expect
  • Start your full-day tour with early morning pickup at your San Francisco hotel. Travel in a comfortable and spacious 4-wheel drive SUV that is well-equipped to handle both city streets and mountain roads. Head east across the Bay Bridge, through Oakland, the East Bay suburbs, and into the Central Valley. Stop to stretch your legs about halfway through the long drive, and have the option to visit fruit stands along the way. Then continue into the Sierra Nevada foothills, passing the gold rush town of Groveland en route to Yosemite. In Yosemite Valley, your guide takes you to lookout points and scenic areas where you can view landmarks such as El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridalveil Fall, Yosemite Falls, and the Merced River. You'll have free time near Yosemite Lodge to hike, see a waterfall up close, or swim in the river (conditions permitting). The lodge offers drinks, food, and souvenirs for purchase. Opt to leave The Valley early and visit The Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoia Trees (depending on the season). After several hours, start your return drive to San Francisco where your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the evening.
