Towering granite cliffs and Giant Sequoias headline this one-day Yosemite tour from San Jose. Expert guides will make sure you don’t miss the history, geology, wildflowers and wildlife that have made this glacier-carved valley the jewel of America’s national park system.
Your Yosemite Giant Sequoia Tour from San Jose begins with a pickup at your hotel, then heads east crossing through California’s fertile San Joaquin (aka Central) Valley and into the craggy Sierra Nevada mountains. Learn the colorful history of the region.
This is the only Yosemite Valley tour where you will also experience the solitude of the Tuolumne Grove of giant sequoias, the largest living things on the Earth. You’ll reconsider your place in the world—two-thousand-year-old trees can make people do that!
Your heart (and cameras) will be racing as you enter Yosemite Valley and enjoy stops at Inspiration Point and El Capitan Meadow. Take a moment at Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls and, OMG, Bridalveil Falls. Then, take some selfies.
Yosemite is open year-round. Visiting during the winter months? Picture Yosemite Valley covered in soft white snow, with animal footprints scattered about in the meadows and snow-capped Half Dome casting its long shadow.
The tour maximizes your time in the park. Begin the return to San Jose in the late afternoon, stopping for dinner (not included) on the way. Special requests? Help with photos? Just ask. Guests can enjoy this Yosemite and Giant Sequoia Tour 365 days a year. But no two tours are alike.
