Overview

Scattered across sprawling and mountainous Yosemite National Park, lie spectacular views and sky-high trees. Join us on this small-group tour of Yosemite’s most photographed landmarks, many of which most park visitors never even see.

Within our small-groups you’ll be accompanied by an expert driver & guide to witness waterfalls, hike between towering Giant Sequoias, enjoy a beach-side box lunch and photograph the famous viewpoints of Tunnel View and Glacier Point.

Leave your car outside the park while you sit back, relax and leave the winding mountain driving to us. Don’t forget your camera! This tour is a photographer’s paradise.

Important Details:

National Park Entry: National Park Entry is included with your tour so there is no need to secure your own day-use permit from the park itself.

Due to our commercial permit with Yosemite National Park, we can only grant you access to the park for the duration of the tour. We cannot provide separate or additional park entry permits or allow you to follow behind and drive your own vehicle.

Pickup Locations: Our pickup locations are conveniently located right outside Yosemite National Park on Highway 140 in El Portal, CA. You can park at either pickup location for the duration of your tour free of charge.

It is imperative to double check our pickup locations and their addresses before arriving to Yosemite. This area does not have reliable cell service. Please do not confuse the Yosemite View Lodge (our pickup) with the Yosemite Valley Lodge (inside the park). Additionally, if you are staying at a hotel on a different highway or location within the Yosemite area, please note that you cannot drive through the park to reach us if you do not have a day-use entry pass. Rangers will not make exceptions for you to enter the park to meet our departure point.
