Yosemite is one of the most beautiful National Parks in the world. This fully guided tour will take you through the highlights of the park all in one day.
The Yosemite tour lasts around 15 hours. Yosemite National Park is located 200 miles east of San Francisco (around a 3.5 hour drive). After a scenic drive through the East Bay, you'll head up into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It was here in 1848 that the discovery of gold by James Marshall started the California gold rush. You will pass through one of the original gold towns and arrive in Yosemite National Park late in the morning.
Yosemite is home to North America's five highest waterfalls, including Yosemite Falls, Ribbon Falls and Sentinel Falls. You will also make stops at the famous cliffs of Half Dome, Cathedral Rocks and the 3500ft El Capitan where you can watch climbers on their 4-7 day journey over the mountains.
The tour allows over 4 hours inside the park and you will have time for lunch in Yosemite Valley (not included).
