What to Expect

Day 1: Giant Sequoias and Glacier Point

Stop At: Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, Mariposa Grove Road, Yosemite National Park, CA 95389
Enjoy a hike around some of the most massive trees on earth. Yosemite has 3 groves of giant sequoia trees, Tuolumne, Merced and Mariposa Grove. I will talk to you about the trails, groves and distances on the way to find a suitable fit for your group.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Glacier Point, Yosemite Lodge Resort origin, Yosemite National Park, CA
This famous view sits 3,200 feet (980m) above the valley. See Half Dome and a variety of waterfalls from a bird's eye view. Drive back down the mountain or meet me at the bottom of the 4 Mile Trail.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Yosemite Valley, 9035 Village Dr, Yosemite National Park, CA 95389-9912
Photograph Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View, where you can see El Capitan, Half Dome and Bridalveil Fall.

Stop in a meadow below El Capitan. Take a look up at the 3000 foot face while trying to spot climbers on the mountain featured in the Academy Award winning documentary, Free Solo.
Duration: 1 hour

No meals included on this day.
No accommodation included on this day.

Day 2: Yosemite Valley or Tuolumne Meadows

Stop At: Yosemite Valley, 9035 Village Dr, Yosemite National Park, CA 95389-9912
(Option One) There is something for all skill levels. Photograph the surrounding mountains and waterfalls from the easier trails along the Merced River. Walk to the base of Yosemite Falls or test your endurance on a more serious trail heading up the side of Vernal Falls or Yosemite Falls. Cool off in the waters of the Merced River while enjoying views of Half Dome. Take it easy while seeking out souvenirs at the Village shops. Enjoy a meal in the beautiful Majestic Dining Room or one of the other eateries in the Valley

Return to San Francisco in the afternoon.
Duration: 8 hours

Stop At: Tuolumne Meadows, East Highway 120, Yosemite National Park, CA 95389
(Option Two): If spending the day in the valley is too slow pace for you, or you are a returning visitor looking to explore other areas, the High Country amazing in it's own right.
This option is not available if roads close due to snow.

95% of visitors only see the valley floor. Escape the crowds to one of the highest meadows in the Sierra Nevada Range. See stunning peaks and high mountain lakes in a more remote part of the park. Take in the views of Half Dome from Olmsted Point. Relax at a Tenaya Beach. Gain elevation by hiking to the top of Lembert Dome above Tuolumne Meadows for a stunning view of the surrounding peaks and wilderness below.

Return to San Francisco in the late afternoon.
Duration: 6 hours

Thomas was fantastic, his knowledge, best places to visit and help in planning our day was great. Go where you want in comfort, with a stop off half way to a place that had great deli sandwiches and coffee. I can not speak highly enough of him and the tour was worth every cent.
