Day 1: Yosemite & Giant Sequoias Tour
Our Yosemite 1-Day Tour maximizes the time you spend in Yosemite National Park by starting early and traveling efficiently in a 15 Passenger Van or mini-bus. This is the only Yosemite Tour that enables you to cover both Yosemite Valley & the Giant Sequoias in one day. You also spend at least 5 hours inside Yosemite National Park, more than any other one day Yosemite tour company in San Francisco. When going through Yosemite Valley, we generally stop to see El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Inspiration Point (aka Tunnel View), and Yosemite Village. Unlike most tours, we also drive to a higher altitude, and a lesser traveled part of Yosemite National Park, for a chance to hike (two mile roundtrip hike) in the evergreen forest to see a Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias, the world's largest living things.After arriving back to San Francisco, you will get dropped off at your hotel.Get plenty of sleep to prepare yourself for the next day to see the most notorious federal penitentiary in US history, Alcatraz.
Day 2: Alcatraz Tour
Meet your Alcatraz tour at Pier 33 (you have to make your own way there), and ride the ferry across the bay to Alcatraz Island. Your Alcatraz Tour begins with a 45 minute audio presentation "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cell house Tour," featuring recordings of actual guards and inmates who lived and worked on the Island. Once your Alcatraz Audio Tour is finished, explore Alcatraz Island as long want on your own, but don’t forget that you have to get the ferry back to San Francisco!
