Your rooms are not included, this is to give you the freedom to control the price, quantity and quality of your preferred accommodation. Relax in a luxury suite, a modern motel or connect with nature in a rugged tent cabin.

Day 1: 
Glacier Point: (summer only) 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. Option: Panorama Trail (8M/13K).
Giant Sequoias: Yosemite has 3 groves of giant sequoia trees. Enjoy a hike around some of the most massive trees on earth. 
Day 2:
Yosemite Valley: There is something for all speeds. Photograph the sights from various viewpoints. Take it easy while seeking out souvenirs at the Village shops. Enjoy a meal in the beautiful Majestic Dining Room. 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 after in the waters of the Merced River while enjoying views of Half Dome. Return to San Francisco in the evening. 
(Optional) Day 3:
Tuolumne Meadows: (summer only) 95% of visitors only see the valley floor. This area is 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. Relax at a lake beach or river fork. Gain elevation by hiking to the top of Lembert Dome for a stunning view of the wilderness below. 
Or
Hetch Hetchy: Drive to the remote dam and reservoir that provides the drinking water to the San Francisco Bay Area. Granite cliffs and waterfalls compliment this feat of engineering. Want to stretch your legs? Head out on a 5 mile (8km) walk to Wapama Falls.

Travel in a comfortable Ford Expedition EL. Optimize your hiking, learning, swimming and photography on a tailored tour. If you have mobility issues, we can visit lookouts and utilize close ADA parking spaces. If you have children, we will match the trip to their abilities and interests. Looking for a big hike? There are a variety of amazing one way and round trip trails that you can be dropped off near. Days last about 10 hours.

To allow you control over the quality and quantity of rooms, I do not include the passenger hotel. You may choose accommodation as far as  30 minutes outside an open Yosemite Park Entrance. You must notify me of your hotel reservations within 24 hours of booking so I may also secure my own room in the area. This is a popular park in the summer and on weekends, most sell out well in advance.
