Giant Sequoia Tour in Yosemite
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.
Once you enter the Park, you will stop at the Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias for a hike and some amazing photos. Staring up at these giants, you won’t doubt for a second that these are the largest living creatures on the planet!
In winter, when conditions on the Tuolumne Grove trail are snow-covered or unsafe, we substitute this experience with other attractions.
After filling your camera roll with pictures of the Giant Sequoias, you’ll head down into the Valley. Along the way, you’ll check out Bridalveil Falls, Tunnel View/Inspiration Point, and Sentinel Bridge, all while learning about the geography and the history of this jaw-dropping natural phenomenon.
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.
