Price Breakdown:


One of the great natural wonders of the world, Yosemite National Park and its spectacular valley have an unforgettable impact on everyone who visits. Travel from San Francisco through California's agricultural Central Valley and into the Sierra Foothills where 49ers panned for gold. Follow the beautiful Merced River to the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. Glaciers cut through these mountains forming the spectacular granite monuments you will see throughout the park, including breath taking waterfalls and Half Dome.

Take in some of the most breathtaking sights California has to offer in this one day tour departing San Francisco to Yosemite National Park. Travel in comfort on a coach bus and enjoy a rest stop in the Central Valley where you can take an opportunity to grab a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park! Upon arriving to the National Park Entrance, take a scenic drive through the park and enjoy a photo stop at one of Yosemite Valley's most famous viewpoints overlooking the entire Yosemite Valley, Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, and Half Dome. As you travel down to the Yosemite Valley, get up close to El Capitan and Bridalveil falls.

Next, enjoy 3 hours of free time in the Yosemite Valley, where you can take in stellar views of North America's tallest waterfall, Yosemite Falls and hike to the base of the Lower Falls. The Yosemite Valley offers various lunch opportunities, hiking trails, bike rentals, museums, and a number of stops to take advantage of the free shuttle service which will give you access to other parts of the park. This one day tour allows you ample opportunities to see all Yosemite National Park has to offer.

The driver was friendly and approachable, talked a lot about the environment and facts about different landmarks and history of the place (like the goldrush).He stopped at various photo locations and tried to take good care for a passenger who had hurt himself.I was really impressed by the beauty of the Yosemite Valley. So much so, that I forgot which busstop I needed to get back on the bus on. Luckily, calling the Gray Line of SF and picking the right menu item gave me a very friendly woman who told me where to go and got me back on track within minutes. Great service!Other people on the bus were very friendly and talky, so if you plan on doing this alone, don't be afraid you might be staring out of the bus window the entire day.

The driver and guide was extremely knowledgeable and clearly was passionate about his job. He gave small details and facts about every place we travelled through during the journey. He was extremely diligent about safety and in ensuring that every passenger had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants explore Yosemite without the hikes!
