Mere words simply cannot do justice to the beauty, the variety, the sheer enormity of Yosemite. That's why we offer this tour. The only true way to experience it is by walking its paths, smelling its trees, feeling its rocks and sensing its vastness. Your naturalist guide will not only teach and show, but will immerse you in Yosemite. From famous sites such as El Capitan and Half Dome to the wildlife and flora of the area, this will be a day for superlatives as you go from one spectacular area to the next.

All this beauty can work up an appetite and your guide will provide a family-style lunch for you to enjoy, surrounded by the park's wonders.

Yosemite's allure changes with the seasons, so it is only fitting that the day's itinerary will be based on the time of year. Spring and summer's higher water levels allow you to feel the mist of Yosemite's waterfalls or explore the placid waters of Lake Merced. Later summer brings warmer temperatures and it will be a joy to feel the coolness of the shade, courtesy of the park's iconic sequoias, or dip a toe into the crystal blue Alpine waters of Tenaya Lake. When winter snows blanket the park, explore the incomparable Yosemite Valley via snowshoes.

No matter the season, you will delight in the gem that is Yosemite.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
