    If you are reserving your tour online, your credit card will be charged within 24 hours. We require a valid credit card to hold all phone & internet reservations. Alternatively, you can pay us in person at our office location for any tour, provided our office is open.

  • What types of payments do you accept?

    Credit Cards: We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards. We also accept debit cards with symbols of these card companies.

    Apologies, but we do not provide a travel or personal check payment option, nor can you choose to pay with cash for any online reservations.

  • Will I get a discount if I book a second tour?

    For certain tours, you can get up to a $9 discount off your second tour. The $9 discount can be applied to Extranomical-operated tours only. 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.

  • Are there any advantages by booking my tour online?

    You will get an automatic discount on your first tour when you book online at www.extranomical.com!

  • Can I combine two or more discount codes?

    At this time only one discount code can be accepted per reservation. You must choose which one you would like to apply upon making your booking. There is a space for the discount code or “tracking code” on the final page of the booking form.

  • 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?

    Unfortunately, any discount code you would like to use must be applied at the time of your booking. The code must be redeemed at the time of reservation and cannot be applied after you have made the booking.

  • Can I cancel or change my reservation?

    Full refunds will be given for cancellations to any 1-day and half-day tour reservations made more than 24 hours before the scheduled departure time. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will not be entitled to any refunds.

    Tours with hotel packages and other third-party attractions tickets (ie. Monterey aquarium tickets) cancelled or changed with more than 10 days notice prior to departure, will incur a $35.00 fee or a fee of 10% of the package cost, whichever is greater.

    Cancellations of any Tour package or 3rd party attraction ticket with less than 10 days notice will not be entitled to any refunds. Airport shuttles, Bay Cruises and Alcatraz tickets are nonrefundable.

  • Where do I pick up the tickets for my tour?

    You do not need to have a physical voucher to board Extranomical-operated tours. Please follow the instructions on your confirmation for any 3rd-party-operated tours such as Bay City Bikes, Blue & Gold Fleet, Airport Express, et al. If you have purchased the Ferry Bay Cruise tickets, your Expedition Leader will give these to you upon boarding your tour.

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

Yosemite Horseback Riding

If you are staying in Yosemite over night and have a free morning inside the park, why not complete your Yosemite trip with a wonderful 2-hour mule or horseback ride? Experience the breathtaking scenery of Yosemite Valley while trodding along on your good natured horse or mule. Your trail partner will carry you sure footedly through the rugged terraine of Yosemite National Park. The two hour trail ride will be a highlight of your visit to spectacular Yosemite National Park. 

The horseback rides are one of Yosemite's most popular activities and sell out in advance, so advance reservation is recommended. Tours are available Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday mornings at 8AM or 9AM. 

Tours available Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays

Departure times are 8:00 AM or 9:00 AM.  Check in at Yosemite Valley Stables at least one hour prior to your scheduled departure time to meet your guide and your horse or mule. Then saddle up and follow your guide on an unforgettable 2 hour ride in Yosemite Valley, the heart of Yosemite National Park.

IMPORTANT:

Please note that children need to be at least 7 years of age and 44" tall to participate.

The maximum weight allowed is 225lbs and all riders must wear closed toe shoes.

Riders are paired with animals based on availability and appropriateness. You will not have a choice of which animal you will ride.
