Yosemite Bus Tour Description

Book your Yosemite Bus Tour
Back to Top

Our 1-day Yosemite bus tour from San Francisco is a great option to see this spectacular National Park, located 215 miles southeast of San Francisco. This Yosemite National Park tour is a bit more relaxed; we take a little more time by adding extra rest stops along the way in the agricultural region of the San Joaquin Valley. Our Yosemite buses hold about 45-50 passengers and offer individual seats, making this an easy day trip to enjoy the Yosemite Valley. Some of the beautiful attractions include Half-Dome, El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls, Three Brothers, Sentinel Rock, and more.

Once arriving in Yosemite National Park, you will hear a narrated tour of Yosemite Valley with a stop at Inspiration Point (Tunnel View), followed by an extended stop in the Yosemite Valley, where you have about two hours to relax, eat lunch, take an additional tour (seasonal), or stroll through the meadows and visit Yosemite Falls. In the winter, the itinerary is basically the same, but there are even more waterfalls to discover, and the scenery is just as beautiful. Make sure to wear shoes with good traction in case the trails are slippery during the winter.

For a smaller group tour and a more unique tour experience, check out our Total Yosemite Experience here.
 

* DURING WINTER MONTHS *
