Does anyone know of any tour groups that leave from San Fran to Yosemite for 2 or 3 nights in early July for camping/hiking/etc?? I'm really interested in seeing the area but would prefer to do it with a group rather than on my own!
Thanks in advance,
Ian

I took the Green Tortoise from Los Angeles to San Francisco perhaps back in 1995 as a teenager and it was a great experience! You'll most likely find foreign travellers to chat with, and even a few hippies. It was the week Jerry Garcia died there was a reminiscent feeling in the air, as well as the Grateful Dead songs playing on cassette tape.

I left out of the Los Angeles station around 8-9 pm. Once we arrived in Santa Barbara to pick up some more passengers (around 11pm) the bus driver converted the bus to a sleep mobile! People were sleeping on the huge bed in the back, on the luggage racks (inside the bus!), everywhere! We made a few more stops throughout the night, but you can pretty much sleep through them.

It was awesome to wake up early in the morning to the bus driver announcing that we would be in San Francsico within the hour! Truly a memorable, and even better, a hassle free trip up the California coast to San Francisco.

If you don't need a lot to make you happy, are pretty easy going, and like to exchange travel stories with worldwide travellers then the Green Tortise is for you!
