Instructions to redeem this offer online can be found during your check out process in the booking form on page 3, but you can also receive this discount by calling our office directly. The discount must be redeemed at the time of reservation and cannot be applied after you have made the booking.

  • My discount code isn’t working!

    Not every code will be applicable to every single reservation. Please read the terms of the discount code you are attempting to use carefully, and note that some codes provided by third parties may have expired. If the code is valid and has been correctly applied you will see the value reflected on the final checkout page before submitting your reservation.

  • I’ve already made a reservation but forgot to add the discount code. Can you refund me the discount?

    Please note that Alcatraz Cruises will require that each adult boarding the boat to Alcatraz bring their photo ID or passport for identity verification. 

This is for the Yosemite Five-Day tour only - no accommodations are provided. Make your own overnight arrangements, or reserve a campsite. (Tour vehicle has limited space for luggage, so try to keep it small!) For independent travelers or campers, the tour includes San Francisco Hotel pick-up, transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley Tour and drop off at Yosemite Lodge, where you gain your independence, for 96 hours. Your second, third and fourth days are all yours, so you’ll be able to do some exploring that you wouldn’t have time for in 2 half days on a 2-day tour. On the fifth day, you will meet another tour group, and finish the day with them and return to San Francisco.


The Five Day Yosemite National Park tour gives you 3 full uninterrupted days you don’t get with the 1- or 2-day tour. Do some all day hiking and climb to the top of Yosemite Falls, or if you are really in shape (and get an early start), to the top of Half Dome, or only part way, to the top of Nevada Falls or Vernal Falls. Mirror Lake is just a short uphill walk, and you can just take it easy and walk around the beautiful valley floor, and visit the Ahwahnee Hotel. You can also take a ranger guided Valley Tram Tour, or go rafting in the Merced River (fare extra and seasonal). For a longer day trip, take the bus up to Glacier Point and walk all the way down to the valley floor, or the Mariposa Grove and back (fare extra and seasonal).

In winter, it is still a great time to visit. Some locations are inaccessible, but the scenery is completely different – the Valley itself is a winter waterfall wonderland. For someone willing to bundle up and wear the right shoes, and get some exercise, you will greatly rewarded, and there are times when you might feel you have the place to yourself.
