Day 3: Yosemite National Park & San Francisco
Departing Yosemite, we stop at a grove of towering Redwoods. Another impressive display of mother nature's handiwork, these are the tallest trees in the world, growing to over 120 metres in height. We finish our journey back in the 'City by the Bay', famous for its Golden Gate Bridge.
Meals: Breakfast & lunch included.
The arrival time in San Francisco depends on each group, but we generally aim for a 3:00pm arrival. If you decide to fly out this day, please do not book a flight before 8:00 pm which will give you enough time to catch a shuttle from the hotel to the airport and be there 2 hours before departure.
