Yosemite National Park was one of the first wilderness parks in the United States. It is best known for its waterfalls and you will find within the park deep valleys, vast meadows, giant archaic sequoias and endless wonderful wilderness.
Yosemite Tours helps provide sightseeing tours, attractions and transportation to Yosemite National Park. You can tour the area by van, bus and train. In addition to activities within the park, Yosemite Tours also offers vacations in San Francisco because it is so close.
The most popular tour we provide is the Yosemite One-Day Tour by Bus from San Francisco. You will venture into the ample wilderness in a large, comfy motor coach with giant windows so you can catch all the wonderful scenery around you. You will pass the Sierra Foothills where the Forty-Niners panned for gold in the 1840s and ‘50s. When you enter the 716,266 acre National Park, you will be left speechless by some of the world’s most stunning scenery.
One of the most spectacular things you will see there is El Capitan. This is a 3,000 foot tall vertical rock formation in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. You will notice that there will be people climbing it as it is one of rock climber’s favorite challenges.
Another memorable sight is the double cataract waterfall, Bridal Veil Falls. It is not only beautiful in the summer when the waters are rushing incredibly fast, but in the winter it is just as appealing. There is an icefall to the right of the falls that attracts many experienced ice climbers and it is quite a sight!
Yosemite Falls, another one of the waterfalls in the park, is the highest measured waterfall in North America and one of the world’s tallest measuring at 2,425 feet. It flows between November and July but it peaks in May so if that is when you are planning on visiting, you are in for a treat! You can walk to the Lower Yosemite Fall (it actually has three separate falls) or hike to the top if you have time later as it takes a full day.
When you fall in love with Yosemite National Park, you will definitely come back because there is even more to do and see. Yosemite has even more waterfalls, trails to hike, horseback riding, rock climbing, fishing, biking, rafting and additional tours of the park.
