Yosemite National Park Day Tour from San Francisco (Non-peak)

Soak in breathtaking views of Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls - North America's tallest waterfall!

One of the world’s most well-known National Parks, Yosemite is home to numerous protected natural wonders. Departing from San Francisco, you’ll pass through the Central Valley, which is one of California’s most pertinent agricultural areas. Occupying a massive 40 to 60 miles of land, it is a rich land full of farms dedicated to produce, and is considered a heartland of California.
The next area is at the Sierra Foothills, located at the foot of the same Sierra Mountain Range that you’ll be able to view well from Yosemite. This area is well known for its vineyards and rich wine production. You will also get the chance to see the winding Merced River, a great place for swimming, hiking and even gold-panning!
After this, you’ll see the Sierra Nevada Mountain range up close for yourself, and wonder at the majesty of them as they overlook the park. Throughout this trip, your driver guide will provide you with information about each stop for you to learn about the bounties protected within this National Park.
