Yosemite Valley Floor Tour Description
Yosemite One-Day Tour. Our one-day tour of Yosemite National Park is a great way to get the most out of your Yosemite Valley Floor Tour. The reason why we do not go to the Giant Sequoia Trees within Yosemite is because it's too far from the Valley Floor where are the popular rock formations are. You can always see large old trees at Muir Woods (just 20 minutes from San Francisco) on our Muir Woods Tour but we think you're paying to actually go to Yosemite and stay on the Yosemite Valley Floor as long as possible. Too many times we have seen customers shocked that we are leaving Yosemite so early only to see a bunch of trees. We think you will agree.
Our Yosemite One-Day Tour maximizes the time you spend in Yosemite National Park by starting early and traveling in luxury in a 26-passenger shuttle bus. This allows us to cover both Yosemite Valley Floor in one day and spend more time in the park (at least 6 hours) which is more than any other one day Yosemite tour available because they're too busy driving you an hour to see trees. In the Yosemite Valley leg, we generally stop to see El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Inspiration Point (aka Tunnel View), and Yosemite Village, where our tour guide will provide many guided walks of things you need to see.

Yosemite Camping Option- Book your 2 Day Yosemite Tour with one night stay at the Yosemite Park campgrounds on the actual Valley floor of Yosemite. Book Your Own Hotel Option online for exact up-to-date single, double, triple and quadruple occupancy rates. This is not a hotel stay! This is a plan where we provide you the camping space in the Upper or Lower Pines campgrounds in Yosemite, a brand new tent to use and a brand new sleeping bag that you can keep or discard when you're done with it. This does not include food, or other items that might be needed for camping other than the tent and the sleeping bag. There are showers at the camping grounds. This option completely makes sense to 1) save money 2) stay within the Yosemite Valley Floor.
