If it’s your first time in Yosemite and/or you’re looking to see all of the iconic landmarks Yosemite Valley has to offer, look no further the Yosemite Valley Hiking Tour. Over the course of the day, your guide will take you on hikes to a variety of iconic Yosemite Valley destinations often including features like Vernal Fall, Nevada Fall, Mirror Lake, Happy Isles, Lower Yosemite Fall, Upper Yosemite Fall and/or Swinging Bridge as well as some of the more “hidden gems” of Yosemite like the little-known Sequoia trees growing in the valley or the secret Indian Caves. The hikes can be broken up with visits to the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and Museum, Ansel Adams Photo Gallery, Yosemite Art Center, replica Ahwahneechee Village, Pioneer Cemetery, or Old Chapel based on the interests of the small group. Prominent geological features like Half Dome, North Dome, Royal Arches and Glacier Point will be pointed out along the way. This is an easy to moderate hiking tour that is great for families and hikers of all skill levels. Since there is so much to see in Yosemite Valley, this trip can also be booked for two different days to make sure you see it all.
