Private Custom Trip itinerary

Day 1 itinerary : Tailor-Made Beginnings

Kick off your personalized 3-day adventure to Yosemite National Park, where flexibility meets adventure. Your expert tour guide-driver can start or conclude your expedition with a side trip to the ancient groves of giant sequoias within the park. If any of these groves are inaccessible, our itinerary adapts, seeking alternative sequoia groves like Mariposa, home to ancient sequoia trees over 2,900 years old.

For those with mobility needs, we offer visits to sequoia forests outside Yosemite, ensuring everyone enjoys this natural wonder. While further away, these hidden forests offer unique experiences. Opting for a longer 4 or 5-day adventure might be ideal in this case.

Hikers can revel in breathtaking trails, escorted by expert guides, customized to your preferences.

Day 2 itinerary: Yosemite Valley Unveiled

Day two delves deep into Yosemite Valley's treasures. Explore iconic spots like the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center, Bridalveil Fall, Tunnel View overlook, El Capitan, and the majestic Yosemite Falls. Opt for a picnic by the falls or savor a meal at Yosemite Valley's acclaimed restaurants.

Enjoy various activities —walking, hiking, swimming—or luxuriate in a 4x4 SUV tour. Hikers have an array of trails:

● Bridalveil Fall Loop

● Lower Yosemite Falls

● Mirror Lake Loop

● Vernal and Nevada Falls

Discover more in our Yosemite Travel Guide.

After an exhilarating day, return to your hotel or bask in the sunset at Yosemite Valley, making the most of your time.

Terms and Conditions: Reservation, Refund, and Cancellation Policy

These are our Terms and Conditions, including our reservation, refund and cancellation policies.

Hey there, I'm Gary! My wife June and I had booked a 3-day tour package to Yosemite National Park with Yosemite Private Tours last year.yosemite-national-park Unfortunately, I faced a sudden medical issue that made it impossible for me to travel, leading to the cancellation of our tour. I knew I would not qualify for a refund, but to my surprise, this tour company not only agreed to postpone my private tour but also did it at no extra cost. They fully honored the rescheduled tour the following year in August, without any additional charges. We stayed at the Ahwahnee hotel in Yosemite Valley.
Trust me, these guys are consummate professionals and genuinely care for their customers.
Highly recommended!
Gary R. Chester, Pennsylvania .

At Yosemite Private Tours, we recognize that plans can unexpectedly change. While our policy outlines specific terms for cancellations and tour adjustments, we endeavor to offer flexibility beyond these details. We strive to assist our customers by providing refunds, arranging tour postponements, or adjusting arrangements to accommodate special circumstances to the best of our ability. Our priority is our customers' satisfaction, and we work diligently to fulfill their needs whenever feasible. These are our Terms and Conditions, encompassing our reservation, refund, and cancellation policies:

I. Refund and Cancellations Policy:

● If the tour is canceled at least 16 business days prior to the scheduled tour (or the date of the tour or service), 91% of the total amount will be refunded. The remaining 9% covers the required transaction fees (4.5% per transaction, as booking and refunding are 2 separate transactions). Weekends and holidays are not counted in the 16 business days' notice period.

● If the tour is canceled at least 8 business days prior to the scheduled tour or service, 50% of the total amount will be refunded. Weekends and holidays are not counted in the 8 business days' notice period.

● If the tour is canceled at least 6 business days prior to the scheduled tour, 15% of the total amount will be refunded. Weekends and holidays are not counted in the 6 business days' notice period.

● If the tour is canceled 5 business days or less prior to the scheduled tour or service, 0% of the total amount will be refunded. This includes no-shows. Weekends and holidays are not counted in the 5 business days' notice period.

Exceptions to Cancellation Policy:

○ Peak Season Reservations: For all bookings and tours scheduled during the peak season (from March to November and from December 15 to January 15) lasting more than one day, a written cancellation notice must be emailed at least 29 business days before the tour date. Please note that weekends and holidays are not counted as business days in the USA. Hence, all sales are final and non-refundable for multi-day tours if canceled within 28 business days.

○ Specific Tours: Tours involving air travel, hot air balloon rides, seaplanes or train tours from April to October are non-refundable.

○ Confirmation Voucher Terms: Most tours booked through our website are subject to specific terms and conditions detailed in the tour confirmation provided after booking.

Do I Need Travel Insurance? Do I get a refund if I cancel for personal or medical reasons?

In such situations, we regret that you have had to cancel your tour and understand how inconvenient it must be to cancel your travel plans for medical or other personal reasons.

● However, our website terms and refund and cancellation policy are made clear at the time of each booking. We recommend that customers read these carefully and consider their individual circumstances before committing to a booking. In accordance with our business insurance, we are unable to make exceptions to these policies.

● We do our best to ensure our customers are well-informed about our terms and refund and cancellation policy. In addition to making our booking policy available on our website (https://www.yosemiteprivatetours.com/yosemite-reservations.php), we also share this information by email when customers book. This information is also provided with the tour confirmation sent to our customers. These steps are taken to ensure you have a copy of our general terms, refund, and cancellation policy. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, some customers rush to claim a refund without having read our website terms and refund and cancellation policy.

● Please do not confuse local small businesses like ours with large travel insurance companies. As per our policies, we DO NOT provide travel insurance and DO NOT take into consideration any cancellations that result from medical situations, personal or professional matters, flight/ travel plan interruptions. This is because we do not qualify for providing travel insurance, which is a different industry regulated by the federal government.

● Travel insurance is available for all travelers and visitors through travel and insurance companies. It is NOT a service we provide. There are a range of travel insurance types provided by many insurance and travel companies, offering benefits and coverage for circumstances like trip cancellation, travel interruption insurance, flight insurance, medical travel insurance, etc. This is the shortlist of the best travel insurance options: Allianz Global Assistance, Travel Guard by AIG, USI Affinity Travel Insurance Services, Travel Insured International, World Nomads, Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection, IM, AXA Assistance USA, Travelex Insurance Services, Seven Corners, etc. Note that these recommendations are based on a Google search. We are not liable for the use of these companies, and we are not affiliated with any of them. Please refer to your credit card company, travel agent, bank, or local travel insurance companies for more information. You may also check out the Federal Government website: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel.html

● Again, please refer to our website terms, cancellation, and refund policy before committing to a booking. Be aware that we apply these policies to all customers regardless of the circumstances.

● Thank you for understanding our situation as a small business. We appreciate you taking the time to understand our policies.

Why do I not qualify for a refund?

● Again, regardless of the reason for your cancellation (whether it’s for medical, business, weather, or any personal reasons), we treat everybody equally and apply the same terms, cancellation, and refund policy to all customers as stated on our website.

● Please understand that when you make a booking, we have reserved the tour dates for you and turned down other reservations to honor yours. Whether you show up or not, the tour guide and office staff wages, the vehicle, the tour itself, and all other services and arrangements we made on your behalf will need to be fully paid for by our business. As such, we must apply our refund policy consistently to account for this.

II. Online Reservation, Methods of Payment, and Transactions Policy

Methods of Payment and Accepted Credit Cards: We accept all major credit cards and payment options including MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, wire transfers, Debit Cards, Euro Cards, “Cartes Bleues”, PayPal Chinese Union Pay, and JCB.

What happens after we void or refund a transaction? Approved transactions: When transactions are processed on our website, and approved by your bank, it still takes about 7 to 10 business days before we receive the required funds transferred to our business merchant bank account. However, we will still honor your tour(s) as scheduled if your transaction is approved, even if the tour is scheduled for the next day, if the date of the tour is available.

What happens after we void or refund a transaction? Approved transactions: When transactions are processed on our website, and approved by your bank, it still takes about 7 to 10 business days before we receive the required funds transferred to our business merchant bank account. However, we will still honor your tour(s) as scheduled if your transaction is approved, even if the tour is scheduled for the next day, if the date of the tour is available.

Voided and refunded transactions: When a transaction is voided, or refunded, the charge is removed from the authorized transaction inquiry and never batched or settled because the funds never leave the customer’s bank account. However, all such transactions will still be shown on the customer’s bank statements as “pending” for up to 7 to 10 business days. This is because the funds are temporarily frozen by your own bank without leaving your account. Please take this aspect into consideration before you follow up with us.

To release the funds : you will need to contact your bank and handle this directly with them.

Common mistakes and misconceptions about voided transactions: Most customers are not aware of their bank’s policy and guidelines regarding online purchases. Funds from the voided charge will be inaccessible to the client for a full 10 business days. For that reason, clients often think that the charge was still placed on their credit card. However, it has never left their bank account and will be available again after 10 business days. In other words, voiding a credit card transaction will NOT remove the charge from the customer’s bank account immediately. So, please be patient before you follow up with us or call your bank in this regard. Banks usually take 7 to 10 business days to release these funds back to your account.

Declined transactions: Why was your reservation declined? When a reservation is declined by a client’s own bank, this is often due to a mismatch between the customer’s bank information (such as the name on the credit card, card number, expiration date, CVV, zip/postal code, or billing address). If any one of these verification factors don’t match the information you provided on our website, compared to the bank information when placing your order, your transaction is automatically declined by your bank. This is to protect your bank information from fraud. Sometimes, transactions are also declined due to insufficient funds as well. Your tour(s) will not be confirmed until your new transaction is approved by your own bank. We apologize for the inconvenience, but please understand this is a measure taken by your bank to prevent fraud and protect your credit card information.

Tip: Most credit card companies (including American Express) now require their clients to inform them in advance when making purchases online or out of town/state/country. Otherwise, they decline the transaction to prevent fraud. You may also get an email or text message alert asking you to approve or decline the transaction that has been declined before you resubmit it online. This is a requirement of many credit card companies for customers’ protection.

Tour confirmation: If your transaction is approved, you’ll first receive an automated email from our merchant provider sent via Authorize.net or Stripe Then, your tour/s will be confirmed by email and you will receive a confirmation tour voucher, also by email. No further reconfirmations will be sent or provided. After receiving these confirmations, you simply need to show up on time at the designated pickup location you have chosen (hotel, home, or other meeting place). Your tour guide will meet and greet you with a sign displaying your name.

-Note that we do NOT call customers prior to the trip unless in case of an emergency or cancellation. You can contact us at any time by email at any time, and we will respond promptly. Email is the ideal way to contact us. This allows us to keep a record of your queries and any special requests you may need or add. In addition, we have live chat on our website. Just leave us a message, and we will get back to you ASAP.

-Our tour guides do NOT take telephone calls during tours. They are driving and dedicating their full time to their customers. Please do not call your tour guide. Instead, use the contact information provided in the email signature you’ll receive from us when confirming your tour and reservation. Alternatively, click here to chat with us or leave us a message. 

Disability Accommodation & Wheelchair Accessibility Policy:

To ensure everyone's safety, we do require advance disclosure of any disability or specific needs.

We reserve the right to decline service if this information isn't provided beforehand.

Unfortunately, our tours cannot accommodate full-size wheelchairs due to vehicle constraints and safety regulations. Limited accommodation might be possible for small, foldable wheelchairs.

Our emphasis on private tours, coupled with insurance limitations and strict regulations, prevents us from offering wheelchair transportation for the safety of all participants.

We encourage exploring specialized paratransit options for suitable accommodation. Safety is our utmost priority, and we reserve the right to refuse undisclosed requests for disability accommodation for the well-being of both our customers and employees.

III. Tour Confirmation and Tour Voucher

Tour Confirmation and Pick-up Time: Yosemite Private Tours will provide either an email confirmation or a tour voucher prior to your scheduled trip. Although printing is optional, your approval of the transaction on our website indicates your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions: Reservation, Refund, and Cancellation Policy.

The email confirmation or tour voucher serves as conclusive confirmation for your Yosemite Private Tour and is valid exclusively for the specified customers, tour date(s), and time. It's crucial to note that our tour vouchers cannot be redeemed beyond the specified dates or times of your tour(s). The voucher holds no cash value, is non-transferable to individuals not listed on it, yet we do offer gift certificates upon arrangement. Furthermore, for specific tours, our email confirmation serves as a substitute for a tour voucher and stands as solid confirmation.

Reservations and Tours Availability: All tours are subject to availability. While we strive to accommodate your tour requests, we reserve the right to refund your transaction if the required tour or service isn’t available. We strongly recommend booking several weeks or months ahead, especially during peak seasons (April to October and holidays). Even if your credit card transaction is approved, we can't guarantee your tour's availability. In case of unavailability, we'll refund the amount to your credit card. To cater to your travel dates, we collaborate with sister companies like Alcatraz Tours Inc. and Golden Horizon Travel Inc. when we are sold out.

Tour Vouchers and Reconfirmation: Customers no longer need to reconfirm their trips once confirmed. Our email confirmation or trip voucher serves as your tour confirmation. Your tour guide-driver will meet you at your hotel lobby or designated location, holding a sign with your name, and will display business badges or name tags. If you didn’t receive a tour confirmation or receipt, contact us via Live Chat or call our office at 209-888-1141.

Non-Receipt of Confirmation: When transactions are declined, customers won't receive a merchant receipt or tour voucher from our office. Unfortunately, our reservation database system doesn't generate emails or information for declined transactions. To rectify this, kindly resubmit your reservation with a different credit card, ensuring your billing address matches your credit card and bank records to avoid declined transactions.

IV. Responsibility and Tour Change Liability

Our responsibility and liabilities cover various aspects:

● Customer injuries, illnesses, loss or damage of personal property, or accidents.

● Inability to perform tours or services due to vehicle breakdowns or vandalism.

● Delays, inconvenience, itinerary changes, or cancellations due to force majeure or circumstances beyond our control, like weather, road conditions, or attraction closures.

Nine days San Francisco, Monterey, Hearst Castle , Mammoth Lakes & Yosemite National Park Travel Package

We waited 2 weeks to review to be sure we weren't still dreaming. So great was our time with this tour company. The tour started with a full day in San Francisco with Mary, our first driver and tour guide who is a native of the city. So, we really experienced S.F firsthand. Then our trip continued with Adam for 3 days to Monterey and Carmel, including somehow a front-row seat next to the 18th green during a PGA event a Pebble Beach without passes! He taught us how to be great actors! A dream picture op for this golf fan. Then Leo, our next guide, took us to the coast beyond Big Sur, including a tour of Hearst Castle. The trip ended with 3 plus days in Yosemite and across the Sierras wilderness. Yosemite National Park is truly magical - the longer you stay, the more you fall in love with it! This park is massive with breathtaking sceneries everywhere you look (giants sequoia, bears in the meadows, waterfall, alpine lakes and a lot of snow in the high country). Our guides couldn't have been more knowledgeable or considerate, especially getting us to every place we gave them on a considerable agenda before we even met them on day one. We saw and did far more than we expected, and they went well beyond the scheduled hours every day. If this reads over-the-top, it's because our experience was way over-the-top. They certainly exceeded our expectations, just as they said they would, and we are so glad we traveled with Yosemite Private Tours.

The Perfect family vacation in Yosemite & Mammoth Lakes


We enjoyed every moment of our Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes travel package with this tour company. We have been to Yosemite before, but this time, we were more excited about our trip to Mammoth Lakes and Eastern Sierra. Our guide, Adam, took us on an unforgettable drive to Mammoth Lakes, Mono Lake, Bodie ghost town, Lone Pine, and other off-the-beaten-path places we have never even heard of. He also took us hiking to places like Devils Postpile National Monument and Rainbow Falls, with acres of stunning mountain scenery. We loved all the attention to detail and the efforts he made to accommodate our family’s changing plans. We were pleasantly surprised by the complimentary upgrade to the Westin Monache Resort in Mammoth Lakes. This is a very elegant resort and in the best location in Mammoth Lakes. It reminded us of our vacation to Switzerland with similar awesome landscapes. Book with Yosemite Private Tours. They are trustworthy, and you’ll be in good hands

2 Day Private tour of Yosemite


Our Yosemite experience was amazing! Within a few minutes of meeting our guide, Leo, we knew we were in for a fantastic adventure. On our way from our San Francisco hotel to Yosemite, Leo knew where to stop at historical points, where to stop to pick up the best sandwiches, and readily answered our many questions. When we arrived at Yosemite, we knew Leo was in his element. He is very knowledgeable and shared interesting facts with us such as the history of Yosemite, the damage caused by fires and insects, as well as ongoing recovery and protection efforts. He knew the perfect places to stop for photos and hikes to see all the most beautiful venues. Leo even assisted us with our luggage. Without a doubt, Leo gets Five stars for making our 2 days in Yosemite a lifetime memory.

Fabulous 5 Days in Yosemite


We chose Yosemite Private Tours off the internet and it turned out to be a truly a golden choice. We are from NY, so Yosemite was a big investment that turned out to have many dividends. Our guide, Leo, was an outstanding young man who had excellent knowledge and experience in leading groups and couples. He had terrific ability to adapt the tour according to our particular needs. Leo picked us up promptly at our hotel in Oakland and after the tour dropped us off at our hotel in San Francisco. Driving the 4 hours to and from and spending the 5 days with Leo was like spending the experience with our adult son. He made the trip truly special and went out of his way to accommodate our every need. Leo knew the history of the park--and the surrounding area--as well as the many features of the park offering options for us to choose. He also knew the best places to eat. Walking shoes are a must and if you are more adventurous call Yosemite Private Tours for more specific needs. They are most gracious and helpful.

Excellent Tour experience of Yosemite National Park


My family and I booked a 3-day Yosemite Tour through Yosemite Private Tours. We couldn’t have had a better experience. A lot of our positive experiences were thanks to our guide, Leo. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Yosemite National Park area, and he took the time to understand what activities were important to us and what was not. We highly recommended both Yosemite Private Tours and Leo!

Tom was fantastic and deserves a 10-star review!


We had the most amazing time. He was very courteous. He was also very knowledgeable and continually spoke about points of interest on our travel to and from Yosemite, as well as a very comprehensive guiding tour while in the Park itself. We felt very taken care of as he made sure all our needs were met. He was incredible when it came to taking pictures. We found this extra special. He brought us to majestic areas and continually asked for our cameras (we had 3) so we would have family pictures and memories for a lifetime. I asked if there was a waterfall we could view; Tom went out of his way to find me one. We found him to be a lovely, warm gentleman that enjoyed what he did and most of all made sure he created a beautiful day. We still are talking about it. We have traveled many places and have had many tour guides. Tom is a gem and we were very lucky!! He made our trip to Yosemite truly amazing!! All that are lucky enough to book your tour and have Tom as their guide will be guaranteed a fabulous trip!!

Thank you. Randi Kamen and family . Cincinnati, Ohio

Lake Tahoe & Yosemite tour experience


While visiting relatives in Silicon Valley, we decided to go on a trip to Lake Tahoe and Yosemite park. After reading through TripAdvisor’s reviews, we picked up this Yosemite Private Tour company, and it lived up to its reputation. Our tour guide was Adam, he is so much fun - very interesting, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. He knows the name of every single tree and rock we saw along the way between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. He kept us well entertained and showed us more attractions and places than we expected to see in both Yosemite and Sierra mountains. He simply exceeded our expectations. This tour package cost us a bit more than we anticipated, but it was worth every penny we spent. What an amazing trip around Lake Tahoe after a 3-day custom adventure to Yosemite national park - a wonderful destination and highly recommended.

Look no further, this is the real Private Tour Company


My sons and I planned a Mother/Sons get away to San Francisco to spend some quality time together. Preferring convenient and hassle-free experiences, we explored our options of private tour companies. Lucky for us, we selected this tour company. We booked three of their private custom tours: Alcatraz and San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Yosemite National Park. Both Mary and Jon are 5/5-star guides, and you will not go wrong with either of them!

Worth it!! Be prepared for very steep hills, windy roads, wildlife


I loved having my own driver. We used them for 2 days with different amounts of time and boy am I glad we did. Driving in Yosemite mountains is not something I am familiar with, but our guide was! Knowledgeable, courteous, and on time. Loved not having to drive, park, or know where go and where things are. Coming 'round the mountain sure sounds like fun, but the fact is that traveling steep slopes on narrow mountain roads can be challenging at best. Mountain driving is very different from driving in flat land. In addition to changing weather, be prepared for very steep hills, windy roads, wildlife... am I so glad we had a professional driver like Adam.

Yosemite National Park Private 3-Day Tour Package


We just finished a wonderful tour of Yosemite National Park with Leo. First, our guide Leo was wonderful - patient, friendly, professional, amazing hiker guide and very helpful. Use whatever adjective you want - he made the trip so enjoyable and doable for my wife and myself, since we are getting on in years. I am 80 and my wife 77. As a result, we certainly could not do the activities we once could. That said, Leo and Yosemite Private Tours were able to structure our daily activities, so we saw Yosemite National Park in an in-depth yet relaxed way. We could not have made the tour without Leo and we truly appreciate the three days spent visiting the Park.
