Tour Details Here: This Yosemite Tour by Train is very popular. Book Early!. No other tour company from San Francisco or East Bay has the Amtrak train option as part of the tour. Please note that we are taking the Train roundtrip to Yosemite and then we are taking a Yosemite shuttle (a little over 2 hours) into the valley floor. On the way home we are taking our shuttle from the Valley Floor to the Amtrak train station and then from the Train station in Emeryville we are again taking our shuttle back to your SF Hotel. The key meeting point during the tour Yosemite Lodge at the Falls Hotel. That is where you will be dropped off and that is where you will pickup the Yosemite Shuttle at 6pm to start your return back. No worries, there is a Tour Guide with you during these important elements of the tour such as during the train and shuttle rides to give you important information and make sure you do not get lost during the tour. Finally, hotel drop-off for San Francisco customers who are staying at either a Union Square or Financial District hotel. Otherwise, you will be dropped off at a Taxi stand to get to your hotel. Please call us Toll Free at 1-866-991-8687 for more information on this Yosemite Tour.
