Yosemite Tours

All tours visit the Yosemite valley where Half Dome and El Capitan are located but Yosemite van tours usually will visit the Giant Sequoia Grove in addition to the valley.

Yosemite Four Day Tour - Day One

6:00 - 7:00 AM
Pick-ups start in Fisherman's Wharf Area and continue in downtown San Francisco.


7:00 - 9:00 AM
Continuing east, see the windmills and descend into the San Joaquin valley and stop for a break and a snack.


9:15 - 11:00 AM
Begin the climb into the foothills, through gold country, and up into the Sierra Nevada range and Yosemite National Park.


11:00 - 1:00 PM
On your Yosemite tour, enjoy the amazing views of the valley, El Capitan, Half Dome, and the Yosemite Falls. Enjoy a hike to one of the park's waterfalls or lakes, or relax at the visitor's center where there are museums, restaurants, and the Ansel Adams Gallery.


1:00 - 5:00 PM
Your independence begins. Check out your options, check your bags, and check out Yosemite! And check your YARTS schedule for departure times, because you are staying outside the Park!


Evening
Check into the hostel, have a nice dinner, sit by the fireplace, relax, have a brew, and get a good night's sleep so you can get up early for another exciting day in Yosemite.


Yosemite Four Day Tour - Day Two

Morning
Get up early and see the sunrise. Get dressed for the day and walk a few feet to the YARTS stop, so you can get started.


All day
You decide! Get some maps, talk to the rangers or the staff at the Village and the Lodge and get some ideas. DO NOT miss the last YARTS bus out! Ask for schedule updates.
IN WINTER: Be prepared to walk on ice and snow - bring warm clothes, waterproof hiking boots, and mittens! Hike the valley, climb to the Top of Yosemite Falls, or take the Mist Trail beside the roaring Merced River. (Be careful, and ask Park staff about trail conditions.)


Evening
Check into the hotel, have a nice dinner, maybe take another swim or hot tub, or catch a movie on TV, and then get a good night's sleep so you can get up early for another exciting day in Yosemite.


Yosemite Four Day Tour - Day Three

Like Day 2, except, do something else! Take an all day climb or hike. Take a Tram tour or Bus to the Sequoias. DO NOT miss the last YARTS bus out! Ask for schedule updates.
