Yosemite National Park private 1-day custom tour

LONG DAY TOUR Our Yosemite one-day adventure is a 12-hour journey that starts when your personal tour guide-driver picks you up in the San Francisco Bay Area, you will be travelling through picturesque backroads toward Yosemite National Park. Based on your preferences, your tour guide will customize and personalize this adventure and trip itinerary and will only drive you to the top places of interest and attractions you want to see, while sightseeing in luxury vehicles without even hiking or walking, unless you wish to do so. We can also pick you up along the way in the East Bay, Central Valley and around Yosemite National Park area.

Experience our Yosemite National Park 2-day custom adventure

TOP 10 POPULAR Why should you choose Yosemite 2-day trip over the Yosemite 1-day tour? The Yosemite 1-day trip takes 9 hours of your 12-hour long tour, driving from San Francisco downtown area to Yosemite and return. This leaves you only 3 hours to visit the Yosemite Valley attractions. Did you know that the Yosemite Valley is only 1% of the Yosemite National Park wilderness? More and more customers choose the 4 and 5-day overnight custom travel package to Yosemite, but you should consider at least the 2-day Yosemite private tour, so you get to explore Yosemite National Park top attractions, sights and hidden natural wonders away from bus tours and other crowded sites in Yosemite Valley floor. Embark on this 2-day custom trip and explore hidden sights, including rivers, hidden waterfalls, alpine lakes, and breathtaking sites that are not included in the 1-day trip, such as the beautiful Glacier Point overlook, Sentinel Dome, Tuolumne Meadows wilderness, Yosemite majestic giant sequoias, Yosemite High Country or Hetch Hetchy Valley, and much more.

Unlike the 2-day trip, the extra day allows you to spend quality time in Yosemite National park, because the travelling time from San Francisco to Yosemite is approximately five hours each way on day one and day three. We therefore highly recommend the three-day custom adventure to give you an extra day to enjoy ample quality time to explore Yosemite in-depth.
