Day One

You'll leave San Francisco behind for a scenic drive to Lake Tahoe, Northern California's favorite summer and winter playground. There, you'll have the opportunity to swim in the lake, rent bikes, trek through the terrain or just enjoy the view from the shore. The afternoon is yours to spend at your leisure, so make the most of this majestic area, where California and Nevada meet. Retire to your campsite for memorable times around the campfire.

Day Two
The next day begins with breakfast and another beautiful drive to Yosemite National Park, where breathtaking views of El Capitan and Half Dome will greet you. You'll spend an adventurous day hiking any of the numerous trails, capture unforgettable photographs of the legendary sequoias or possibly spotting a family of deer or other wildlife! Breathe in the fresh mountain air as you spend another night in a campsite among the stars.

Day Three
After breakfast on the final day, bid Yosemite farewell and depart for San Francisco, stopping on the way for one last photo opportunity of Bridal Veil Falls. After your journey back to San Francisco, explore the city to your heart's content -- from riding a cable car and strolling through Fisherman's Wharf to shopping in Union Square and dining in Chinatown.

It was a fantastic adventure. I think we could have done more on the first day if we hadn't stop for such a long brunch, which I didn't think was necessary, but otherwise, it was great. Our guide Joseph really made it worth it. He was cheerfull and had many informations too share with us about all the places we saw. He even went out of his was on the last day so that we could visit an extra place and we were all very grateful for that. All together, we had a very good time and visited a great place.

The tour was really badly organized and we kept getting lost. Our tour guide didn't really keep us informed and during this amazing walk through the Yosemites we heard her complaining alot about how steep it was and how tired she was. That is definite not something you would expect from a tour guide.
The actually places were amazing but the tents we used were quite old (the zipper on our tent was stuck + rusted).
