Naturalist Guided Sightseeing Tours
Naturalist-led sightseeing excursions, with optional short hikes, are designed to provide a very unique and highly personal experience. Each tour is guided by professionally trained and highly skilled naturalists. As presented with all of our outings, each trip is exclusive, arranged only for the intended guests. We do not add other people to your trip to create large groups or mix multiple individuals into outing, we prefer to keep our trips within the confines of the individuals, families, or groups of friends reserving a trip. It is the purpose of Yosemite Guide Service to make each trip private and personal, providing a unique and distinctive outing that enhances your experience.
Sightseeing tours can be reserved with or without a hike included, and even two or more short hikes if preferred. The hikes combined with a sightseeing tour are commonly shorter in length than a typical day hike and are chosen based upon your ability and preference. Our sightseeing tours are really quite distinctive, designed from years of experience living, working, and exploring Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada. We are very skilled at knowing where to go and how to best get there; wasting les time driving, accessing the best viewpoints and vistas, and efficiently navigating through the tourist crowds. Even with the most popular and frequently visited scenic places, we know special side trails and paths, the slight nuances that make the tours special and unique.
