Yosemite Valley Orientation Tour

1 review
Leave your car outside the park and take our eco-friendly guided transportation instead.<br><br>After picking you up at Yosemite View Lodge on Highway 140, we will drive approximately 45 minutes to Yosemite Valley. On the way, you'll hear about the history and geology of Yosemite National Park before stopping for photos at El Capitan. Before being set free for a day of hiking and exploration, our expert guides will provide a park orientation &amp; hiking briefing so you'll be prepared to hit the best trails and find the best viewpoints. <br><br>Once you've hit the trails, taken a dip in the Merced River and gotten all the photos of Half Dome and El Cap you could desire, we will head back to Yosemite View Lodge to drop you off.

I'm sure it's beautiful when you're not having to deal with the endless smoke from the Creek Fire. Disappointed that the park did not close due to poor air quality conditions. Ultimately it was a wasted trip.

We were unfortunate to go during second largest wildfire in California history so most of the park was covered in smog. Make sure you check the air quality before you go so you don't become disappointed

It had been a number of years since our first visit to Yosemite. During the coronavirus period, it seemed the most ideal and safe trip to take. Besides, we needed a great weekend trip during these times. We booked our entrance reservation through recreation.gov website once we heard the park was open again. One of the great memories I had of Yosemite was this magnificent view as you exit the tunnel road. Wham! There it is in all its glory still. This time, it was much easier to find a parking spot across the street. Since the park only took "reserved" visitors, this gave us some extra space for things like parking. Still, as you can imagine, it's one of the major visited spots and the very first one from this entrance. The weather was perfect for great photos once again.

The view from Tunnel View is absolutely stunning! It's a great place to stop after a long drive, right at the entrance to the Valley. Get out, stretch your legs, and enjoy the view! This may be the best view in the entire world that requires NO effort!
