What to Expect
Yosemite 1-day tour itinerary and more

o Complimentary pick-up at your hotel in San Francisco at 6 or 7 am or at 10 am in / around Yosemite & outlying areas.
o Drive to Yosemite via Central Valley
o Rest break in Central Valley: ‘The Fruit Basket of the World’
o Second Half: Drive to Yosemite Valley via the Sierra Nevada Mountains
o Sightseeing of the Sierra Nevada –Yosemite Valley Wilderness
o Explore Yosemite Valley Wonders and Sights
o Lunch Break at a restaurant by Yosemite Falls or The Ahwahnee in Yosemite National Park (meals are not included)
o Hiking & Walking guided tour to the Yosemite waterfalls, river, and attractions
o Please note that the day trip doesn’t go to the Sequoias , Tuolumne Meadows or Glacier Point due to the lack of time! We highly recommend the overnight outdoor adventures all included as the day trip takes most of your valuable time to drive to and out of Yosemite. Please expect a lot of traffic jams in the summer and heavy snow falls in the winter.
o The duration of this trip is based on your pickup or drop off location, it may last 12 hour when leaving from San Francisco Bay Are or 5 to 6 hours when starting and ending the trip in Yosemite or outlying Areas.
o We leave the choice to cancel your tour before you book, however, if you proceed, please understand that we have been 100% transparency about our terms and conditions.

o The misconception about private tours: Private tour operators (like ours) make 95% less profit than public group tours, because all our resources are dedicated to a small group (couples or families), whilst the pubic tour operators make 10 times more profits thanks to the volume (quantity)!
We, on the other hand, focus on quality as we never share our private tours with other customers. Yet, although we provide a higher quality tour service, and incur even greater expenses in many cases, the profit margins are limited. This makes some of our private tours barely profitable due to the high cost of conducting such a small business in California!

o Note: Please understand that we do reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. We have the right to remove rude customers, and limit unfair demands from clients, wasting the company’s time and resources, which impact other customers and our staff who are also often affected.

o Last, if you disagree with the cost of this long day private custom tour by luxury vehicle with a private tour guide, please feel free to cancel your booking before you proceed, however, if you confirm your booking, kindly do not make your feedback after the trip about the cost of the tour as this will be about tour guide’s job and touring experience, and not about the cost of the trip anymore!
Thank you for understanding our terms and for your cooperation.
Happy Travels
