See Yosemite in just one day. No rental car necessary, and no need to rush around and coordinate—San Francisco Sightseeing takes care of all the details on your behalf! This fourteen-hour trip departs daily at 7AM and takes you directly to the beautiful Yosemite Valley, where you will experience one of the natural wonders of the world, and revel in the wild and natural beauty of the area. The vibrant colors are simply breathtaking. From the azure sky to the puffy white clouds, rich green trees and grass, and stunning granite rock formations; everything at Yosemite is magnificent, and this will be the tour of a lifetime.

Yosemite National Park is a massive National Park that spans the eastern portions of Tuolumne, Mariposa and Madera counties in east-central California, and covers some 760,000 acres. The area was designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, and is world-famous for its rich biodiversity and natural landmarks, including its Giant Sequoia groves.

Your trip will depart from San Francisco, bringing you to Yosemite Valley’s half-mile deep depression which was carved by glaciers during the last ice age. This geologically-rich area now boasts soaring 3,000-foot high granite domes and vast waterfalls that radiate rainbow-hued spray through the sunlight. You will visit Yosemite’s Central Valley, a wonderfully-fertile piece of land nestled between the coastal mountains and the Sierra Nevada range. This particular area is home to “the world’s greatest garden”! San Francisco Sightseeing’s Yosemite Day Tour includes the guided tour, and also gives you ample time to explore on your own, with options to take in some hiking, shopping, and dining in the quaint Yosemite Village.

The return trip to San Francisco will afford you plenty of time to reflect and flip back through the awesome photos you’ll have taken on your tour, and also to marvel at the sun as you follow it west to its setting point over the Pacific Ocean.

Please note that San Francisco Sightseeing offers complimentary hotel pickup and drop-off shuttle service from most hotels in the city. Please call ahead (24 hours or more) to schedule a pickup. This tour is subject to cancellation during winter storms in the Sierra Mountain range without prior notice to customers.
