Trip FAQ’s

What will we see?

Yosemite National Park, nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, is a breathtaking natural wonderland renowned for its towering granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and diverse ecosystems. Home to iconic landmark views such as El Capitan, Half Dome, and Yosemite Falls. Throughout the day your group may see stops such as Tunnel View, Bridalveil Falls, the Ansel Adams Gallery, and peer through a spotting scope at rock climbers hanging midway up the face of El Capitan! Alternatively, your group may opt to do a longer day such as Yosemite Falls or Nevada Falls Trail with gorgeous views of the rolling smooth granite mountains and incredible waterfalls.  Along the way, your naturalist guide will share histories of the gold rush, Ahwahneechee people, and give fun facts about the flora and fauna in the area.

When will we be picked up?

Pick ups begin at the designated start time listed when you booked your trip. Your stop may be anytime within a half hour from that time. Your guide will message you about a day in advance to confirm more precise timing, which is based on the number of folks in the group and their pick up locations.

Can we adjust the start time or trip length?

We will stick to our pickup time and trip length for our small-group tours. For a fully customized trip, we recommend considering our private tour options.

What do we do for lunch?

Are there age requirements?

They say age is just a number and we (mostly) agree! However, group dynamic considerations, we do have a minimum age of 8 on our small group departures. But there’s no maximum!

If you have someone under 8 in your group, we can accommodate all ages on a private adventure, so let’s talk!
