Full description

Witness some of the most awe-inspiring views of nature on a full-day Yosemite Valley excursion with an expert guide. See the towering and famous El Capitan rock and the tallest waterfall in North America, Yosemite Falls, and more, along your way.

Meet your guide at either the Cedar Lodge or Yosemite View Lodge on Highway 140, and head straight to the National Park. Get ready to explore all Yosemite Valley has to offer lead by an expert guide.

First, arrive at Tunnel View to witness the most well-known views in Yosemite Valley, El Capitan and Half Dome. You'll be awe-struck by their sheer grandeur and height. Then, follow the Merced River to Curry Village where your guide will lead you on a 5.4-kilometer (round trip) hike on the most famous trail in the Valley, The Mist Trail, to the Vernal Falls footbridge.

After the hike, head to Yosemite Village to tuck into a tasty boxed lunch while taking in the spectacular view of the tallest waterfall in North America, Yosemite Falls. Next, take a stroll along the Valley Loop Trail to the Ahwahnee Hotel. The fascinating design and architecture of this 1927 hotel puts it on the list of the National Register of Historic Places.

Walk back to Yosemite Village through the meadows before heading over to El Capitan Meadows for more stunning photos. Then sit back and relax on the scenic drive back.
