San Francisco to Yosemite Mini

A great escape from the city to the mountains!

Reviewed September 2017

After 2 weeks spent in and around San Francisco it was so lovely to get out into the hills. We had a full mini-bus of people from all over the world and all ages. Everyone was easy to get on with. You head straight out to Tahoe from San Fran arriving there for a picnic lunch by the lake - beautiful views. Our guide then gave us 2 options for a walk during the afternoon. We had a couple of hours so opted for a hike to Eagle Lake (well worth it). Then it was straight to the campsite near Zephyr Cove to learn how to pitch our tents and set up camp. No-one on my trip wanted to do the boat trip so instead we all had a BBQ by the lake and watched the stunning sunset. It was a short but sweet visit to Tahoe - I now want to go back for longer. The next morning it's a long, but scenic drive to Yosemite. We arrived early afternoon and had about 3 hours to explore. We walked to Yosemite Falls and then Mirror Lake. Others hiked up to Vernal Falls. Then a drive to the campsite where we made Fajitas and Smores for tea! The next morning we had time to visit the Giant Sequoia grove, have a couple of photo stops and then head back to San Fran. Another long trip with an In &Out Burger stop off! This trip doesn't give you long in each place but is still well worth doing as it's just so great to escape the city and see more of what California has to offer. Our guide was fantastic and I'll definitely be doing another trek in the future :-)

Beautiful roadtrip

The Yosemite & Tahoe mini trip is the perfect chance to get out of the city and enjoy a few days camping in bear country! We had a great, small group of trekkers and a lovely tour leader. It would have been nice to stay an extra day in either Tahoe or Yosemite as you only get a few hours in each place but its great to experience both of these places with a leader if you are pushed for time in the area!

Such an amazing experience and a good way to see the important bits if you are on a short time scale or unsure where to go! Would love to go back again and spend more time there. Guide was lovely and food was good too.

Amazing experience

Despite the bush fire, we had a really good time, the food was really healthy and the camp site at Lake Tahoe was beautiful. Yosemite is definitely a highlight for those who like to do a bit of hiking, or if you just want to get the shuttle round the park. No bears seen though!! I recommend the sunset catermaran on the Lake Tahoe for sure.
