We provide all the meals, lodging, local transportation, and an expert guide so you can relax and soak up Yosemite!
Our daily treks cover the gamut from popular, classic hikes to lesser-known gems that we selected just for this trip. We’ll spend time in Yosemite Valley; we’ll venture up into the snow at Badger Pass, and explore one of Yosemite’s three Giant Sequoia Groves.

From Fresno: Yosemite Area Rapid Transit (YARTS) is offering 4 bus rides each direction from Fresno to Yosemite Valley. If you’re not renting a vehicle, this is the simplest way to reach Yosemite.
From Other California Cities: by rail on the Amtrak San Joaquin Train to the city of Merced (serviced by most large cities in California) or by Amtrak “Thruway” Bus Service from Merced to Yosemite Valley. To book your trip, use Amtrak’s Online Reservation Service to book round-trip Amtrak travel to “YOS” (Yosemite Valley).
California does not charge sales tax on services, so there is no sales tax for this trip.
