Avoid the hassle of crowded parking lots, so you can spend more time exploring
Small-group tour limited to 15 people for a more personalized experience

What to expect
Your morning starts with a pickup from a select San Francisco hotel. Board the minibus, settle in for the drive, and enjoy the scenery while you cross the Bay Bridge. Stop for a snack before continuing to the Sierra Nevada foothills and Gold Country. Enter Yosemite National Park via Groveland, making a quick stop for a guided hike among sequoia redwoods. Then, stop at Tunnel View for photo ops of Bridalveil Fall, Half Dome, and El Capitan before continuing to Yosemite Valley. Get close enough to El Capitan to spot climbers scaling its sheer face, and move on to Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. After some free time to purchase lunch (own expense) or explore the falls or Yosemite Village, meet with your driver for the journey back. Make a short stop in the Central Valley for a snack before getting dropped off at your hotel.

Even tough we had a slow start of the day, our tour guide managed to cover it all for us. He extended out tour times and made us visit all of the Yosemite Hot Spots!!

It was a great tour! Our tour guide, Brian, was amazing, very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was a super long day though. We also were able to arrive to the park early (thanks to Brian’s great planning) which gave us the ability to cut the line and save time.

Brian was our tour driver, 10/10 experience and super insightful about everything. I feel like I got the most out of the experience that we could and the long ride there was quick because we watched great documentaries on the way.

Amazing tour of Yosemite
May 2021
An amazing experience...Brian took us to all the spots and was so informative. Yosemite is even more beautiful in person. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off afterwards. My elderly folks came along and were able to enjoy a lot of the sights without a lot walking.

First Glass Tour of Yosemite National Park
This was one of the best tours my husband and I have taken. Brian with Best Bay Tours did an amazing job. We learned so much about Yosemite National Park from this tour. A lot was packed in the 1 day tour but Brian made sure we were comfortable and sent over and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful tour of Yosemite National Park.

The tour to do if you want to see Yosemite!
May 2021 • Solo
Phil was an outstanding tour guide and was happy to answer any questions we had about the city. He called the day before to confirm pick up time as well as location. The tour itself was fantastic. It is a very long day but it is worth it. Be sure to pack for warm and cool weather as it is usually a lot warmer there than San Francisco. April/May is the best time to see the waterfalls and there were a lot of them. He showed us a lot of cool “bonus” stops and had really good recommendations. If you’re looking to see Yosemite definitely do this tour you won’t regret it!!

Great Trip for Solo Travelers
Apr. 2021
The small group Yosemite and Giant Sequioas Day Trip was the highlight of my time in San Francisco. Our tour guide, Brian, was so knowledgeable about Yosemite and brought us to all of the best spots! This was the perfect way for me to experience Yosemite as a solo traveler staying in the city, as safety was my number one priority. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Yosemite in a day.
