Yosemite-Tours offers 1-day tour of Yosemite National Park and the Giant Sequoias. Our Yosemite 1-day tour maximizes the time you spend inside Yosemite National Park with an early pick up and traveling in smaller vehicles, no large motor coaches. You’ll be able to explore both Yosemite Valley and the Giant Sequoias in one day and spend more time in the park (at least 5 hours) than any other 1-day Yosemite tour available.

We took a full day tour with Discover Yosemite tours. It was a long day starting at 8.00am to 6.30pm. The value for money is excellent as the tour includes: knowledgeable tour guide, lunch at the Majestic Lodge and pick up and drop of in a air con coach. We simply could not have seen Yosemite in one day without... More

My family of four took the Yosemite Park and Giant Sequoias day trip. We knew it was going to be a long day (14 hours) but I had always wanted to go to Yosemite and always wanted to see the Sequoias. Pick up was right on time. Our guide, Anthony was very conscious of the time and kept the tour... More

We did this tour Nov 5th. It's a long bus ride @ 4+ hours, but we'll worth it. Our driver and very informative guide ALEX was phenomenal! He offered tons of good information along our route. One pitstop at a great market stand on an Almond farm. Bought some goodies. Bus was comfortable and Alex made some scenic photo opportunity... More

The drive to the NP from San Francisco is excellent. The names like El Capitan are not very spectacular. The fall so much talked about was a trickle due to very poor monsoon. It is no diffent from many other national Parks

We had a great day trip to the Yosemite, where we had some wonderful pictures and memories taken with us to bring back home. The trip was a long 14h, with a 3h stop on Yosemite Valley, as well as several stops on the park for photo opportunities as well as snack / bathroom breaks. Our guide was an informative... More

Recognising that we'd left it too late to book overnight accommodation in Yosemite itself we decided to hire a car and visit South Lake Tahoe instead, mistakenly thinking we'd see some of Yosemite. This was a bad decision; it is no Yosemite and a long drive with little reward at the end. So on the spur of the moment when... More

Do NOT take a one day a Bus Tour of Yosemite from San Francisco. You leave SF about 9 and arrive about 1. You have only 3 to 3 1/2 hours in Yosemite during which YOU ARE COMPLETELY ON YOUR OWN. Your bus driver then picks you up and drives you back to San Francisco.

1. Not on time - I had to wait 45 minutes to be picked up by the tour bus, with no apologies given. Not to mention it was cold and unsafe (people fighting outside with bloodied faces, police etc). 2. Did not fulfill promise of sending back to hotel - the whole bus was told by Steve the driver that... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
