Yosemite National Parks Service

A Day in the Country- Yosemite National Park Yosemite National Parks Service

San Francisco Bay area day trip to Yosemite National Park

Your private railcar is ready for boarding and a morning departure from Amtrak’s Jack London Square station, Emeryville or other select bay area Amtrak stations bound for your full day of travel through the scenic and picturesque San Joaquin Valley.

Freshly brewed coffee and breakfast await you and your guests upon boarding. Or perhaps we can offer you a traditional bon voyage toast with a glass of Champagne or other selection from our bar and full beverage service.

Upon arrival at Merced, your group will transfer to your chartered motor coach for a trip to Yosemite National Park for lunch at the famed Ahwahnee Hotel. Or, if you prefer, we can also arrange to have a catered gourmet picnic in the park. After lunch, take a guided tour of the park, relax and take in the wonders that the park has to offer.

Return in your motor coach back to Merced for boarding your private car and your return trip to the bay area. While you’ve been touring and working up an appetite our Chef, the Steward, and the rest of our professional onboard service staff have been busy getting ready for your trip home with us to the bay area.

After cocktails and hors d’oeuvres the dinner chimes will sound and a sumptuous multi-course gourmet dinner will be served on fine china, sparkling silver and crisp white linens. After coffee and dessert, or perhaps an after dinner drink or aperitif, you will wrap up a perfect day in the country with arrival back in the bay area around 10:00PM.
