Overview

Start the tour by getting picked from either the Fresno area, Oakhurst, Coarsegold, Mariposa, El Portal, Fish Camp, or Bass Lake. Enter the park from the Southgate and stop at Chinquapin and Glacier Point, an overlook with a commanding view of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls and Yosemite’s high country. Take a short walk to the Point for breathtaking views of the valley, Yosemite Falls, Nevada Falls, Vernal Falls, Curry Village, Ahwahnee Lodge, Merced River, and the surrounding mountain tops.
Those looking to do some hiking can explore the 4-mile downhill trail from Glacier Point. The trail ends on Southside Drive, where the guide will be waiting for you. Continue on to a few other sites in the valley, all en route to the famous Ahwahnee Hotel. Known for its magnificent façade and architecture, The Ahwahnee was specially designed to highlight its natural surroundings, which include Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and Glacier Point. The destination of queens and presidents alike, this distinctive Yosemite hotel offers a perfect balance of history, hospitality, and elegance and shines as Yosemite National Park’s distinctive AAA® Four-Diamond hotel.
Visitors who choose not to hike will drive back to Chinquapin and down to the Yosemite Valley. Starting from the Tunnel View, soak up incredible views of Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, The Chapel, Sentinel Bridge, Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. Head to the Ahwahnee Hotel for lunch and then visit the meadows in front of El Capitan, where you might be able to see skilled rock climbers ascending its face. From there, drive along the Merced River to check out the President Roosevelt and John Muir campsites. Throughout the tour there will be ample opportunities to take beautiful pictures from the best locations.
