Yosemite Two-Day Tour - Yosemite Big Trees Lodge. Travel back in time at the Big Trees Lodge, a National Historic Landmark just minutes from the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias within Yosemite National Park. Excuding Victorian Charm, it is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax after an exciting day exploring Yosemite Valley.
On the lodge's veranda, sit back on one of the property's classic Adirondack chairs and take in the views or meet new people. Rooms are decorated in authentic period decor with the choice of private bath. They do not have TVs or phones though with all the activities and amenities within the propert including golf course, hiking trails, outdoor swimming pool and in the evenings wind down around the piano for musical performances; when you get to your room you will be exhausted after your fun filled day.
Tour includes San Francisco hotel pick-up, transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley tour and drop-off at Yosemite Valley Lodge, where you will take the YARTS shuttle (not included) to Big Trees Lodge (approx. 1 hour) and have the rest of the day on your own to explore the nearby Mariposa Grove or relax by the swimming pool (during summer months). The following morning, enjoy breakfast at Yosemite Valley Lodge’s Food Court where you can order 1 breakfast entree and 1 beverage.
As an optional extra you have the opportunity of adding dinner at the Majestic Hotel where you have the choice of 1 starter, 1 entrée, 1 dessert and 1 non-alcoholic beverage from the menu. With towering 34-foot high ceilings, enormous pine trestles and granite pillars, the chandelier-lit The Majestic Yosemite Dining Room is as spectacular as it is inviting. The Majestic Yosemite Dining Room offers the finest dining in all of Yosemite National Park. Reservations are highly recommended.
