Today is an arrival day, and you’ll meet your guide and new travel companions at 18:00. Beforehand, why not walk the Golden Gate Bridge for incredible city skyline views, spot sea lions and sample the foodie delights at Pier 39, or take a stroll into the colourful Castro or hip Haight-Ashbury districts.

Swap city for nature, and get lost amongst the towering trees and granite peaks of California's beloved Yosemite National Park. Take some time exploring the valley on foot or by bike, or if you want more of an adventure, there are tons of incredible hikes to get stuck into. The ‘Mist Trail’ hike to Vernal and Nevada Falls is something special - not only will you see epic waterfalls but you might even spot some incredible wildlife – maybe even a bear!

What our trekkers say

4.5 out of 5
JANICK

So much to see in so little time

Reviewed November 2018

The Trek America "San Francisco to New Orleans Plus" tour is part of the bigger "San Francisco to New York Plus" tour Trek America was trying out this year. Some people, even guides, hopped on and/or off at various cities along the way: Las Vegas and/or New Orleans. Our part of the bigger tour started on October 6th and ended on October 18th 2018. I really wish I could go back in time and buy the bigger tour because 13 days was not long enough to see and learn everything... not enough to get to know everyone on the tour better.
