Highlights
    What to Expect
    Hop on the Amtrak train from Los Angeles and enjoy the ride through California's great Central Valley, on the way to Fresno. Once there, check into your hotel and then take some free time, perhaps doing some gaming in the nearby casino or eating at one of the many fine restaurants in proximity to the hotel. 

    In the morning, get shuttled to the natural wonderland known as Yosemite National Park. Pass through the small towns of Coarsegold and Oakhurst and then enter the park through the South Gate. Stop and get a great photo op of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, and Yosemite’s high country. Because of the smaller vehicle you're being transported in, visit parts of the park that are normally off limits to tours. Take a short walk to Glacier Point to get a commanding view of Vernal Falls, Nevada Falls and the Merced River, among other sites. Once at Glacier Point, consider doing the optional hike on the 4-Mile Trail, an easy preamble, ending at Yosemite Lodge where you'll re-unite with the group. 

    Take a break for lunch and then continue exploring enchanting Yosemite Valley, lingering in the meadows below El Capitan and then visiting the historic Wawona Hotel. 

    After a day of discovering incredible Yosemite, head back to Fresno to catch the train to Los Angeles.

    Hi folks! If you want to do this trip, I suggest you just get a tour for the yosemite part of the trip, and then make sure that there is not a lot of time designated to picking up and dropping off other people who are joining your group who are not REALLY close by. At least, 4

    First when they say from Los Angeles by train that's sort of accurate. You board an Amtrak bus in Los Angeles to Bakersfield then catch a train to Fresno so just be aware when you book that's the actual trip detail. It's about 5 hours from L.A. to Fresno this way. We were met by

    The main thing to keep in mind with this tour is a lot depends on the time of year you go. My wife and I went on this tour in April 2018 and as a result the road to Glacier Point was closed and the Mariposa Grove was closed for maintenance. We got our Amtrak reservation and
