About this activity
You will be picked up at your hotel in the San Francisco Area or at SFO in a complimentary private transportation at 9 - 9.30am depending on the flight departure schedule for your transportation to the private airport for your departure. Depart at 10am approximately for an hour flight to Mariposa Airport, which is close to Yosemite.

Here you will be received by your professional driver/guide, and you will ride in a Hummer or premium SUV on California State-desginated Scenic Hwy 140 along side the Merced River. Visit breathtaking highlights in the Yosemite Valley: Tunnel View, Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, and Sentinel Bridge. From Sentinel Bridge you get a beautiful view of Half Dome and the reflection in the water, a picture that has inspired many to come to Yosemite. Take a lunch break at the Yosemite Falls, a small walk to the base of the iconic waterfalls is a sight you will never forget. After lunch stop at the El Capitan Meadows to see if you can spot the rock climbers. Another stop is at the valley view and Merced River with all the Bridalveil Falls in the background, along with El Capitan on the left and Half Dome all the way in the back.

Return to Mariposa as you drive alongside the Merced River for a 4:30pm departure so you can be back in the San Francisco Bay area around 5.30pm. This is a private tour for your group or family only, so the times can be flexible.
