Amazing Excursions Beyond San Francisco with Extranomical
Extranomical Tours offers small-size group sightseeing and tour excurisons for visitors looking for a "traveling with friends" feel. In addition to local tours, Extranomical also provides regular tour service to popular destinations outside of San Francisco, including Yosemite National Park, Wine Country, Monterey and Carmel. Package options include:
Total Yosemite Experience
This is the only Yosemite tour from San Francisco that includes a visit to the largest living beings on the planet, the Giant Sequoia trees, all in a one-day tour. Hike among the evergreen forest of Tuolumne Grove and gaze up into the canopy of thousand-year-old trees. Tour stops often include El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls and Inspiration Point. Guests might also get a glimpse of the wildlife that calls the park its home. Maximizing the time spent in the park by starting early and traveling efficiently in a 15-passenger van or 36-passenger minibus, Extranomical is the only company that offers audio guides in eight different languages to Yosemite as well as daily guaranteed departures, including holidays.
Redwoods & Wine Country Escape
This tour offers a sensational combination of Muir Woods National Monument and Napa, as well as Sonoma. Starting the morning early before other tour groups reach the park, Extranomical guests can visit the tallest tree species in the world, the Redwood Sequoias, in Muir Woods. After a short drive north enjoy a relaxing afternoon wine tasting in California’s renowned Napa and Sonoma Valleys at three family-owned boutique wineries. Tasting fees included! At the historic Sonoma Plaza, guests can lunch on their own, or upgrade to a private seated gourmet food and wine pairing experience to bring the whole California wine country adventure together. At a local featured restaurant, diners will be offered locally-inspired food with Sonoma Valley cheese, sparkling wine and a collection of California wines. The Redwoods & Wine Country Experience tour with a Gourmet Food & Wine Pairing option is available all year around.
Wine Lover's Tour
Extranomical's Wine Lover’s Tour is a semi-private luxury tour that does not follow a pre-set itinerary. Guests can decide in consultation with their guide to go to both Sonoma and Napa Valley, or to concentrate on just one “appellation” (region), visiting four to six boutique wineries in one day. The guide will fill guests in on the colorful history of California and wine making and the short drives between wineries afford time to talk about the science and art of wine making, wine tasting and other fascinating topics. The 13-passenger luxury van is equipped with premium leather captain chairs that help provide a comfortable and memorable itinerary.
Monterey & Carmel Explorer Tour
Traveling south on the famous Pacific Coast Highway toward Monterey County, this tour first stops at famous Cannery Row for a chance to stroll among the local shops and grab a fresh seafood lunch. Next, the tour follows the coast through the beautiful little town of Pacific Grove on the way to the 17-Mile Drive. This famous road winds its way between magnificent homes and the spectacular coastline, between the greens and tees of world famous Pebble Beach Golf Course and among the last remaining forest of a rare species of the Monterey Cypress. Upon arrival in the enchanted town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, guests can explore the boutique shops on Ocean Avenue or be dazzled by the white sandy beach. The historic Carmel Mission is included pending time and interest, along with optional short stops in Half Moon Bay or Santa Cruz.
Premium Outlet Shopping & Napa Wine Tasting Tour
Those who love a good deal will enjoy a Premium Outlet Shopping & Napa Wine Tasting Tour. First, tour-goers spend four hours shopping at one of the biggest outlet malls in the Bay Area, where they can save up to 70% on big name brands, such as Michael Kors, Adidas, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Burberry, Converse and many more. Next, the tour heads to Napa Valley to celebrate new purchases and for some wine tasting before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge on the return to San Francisco.
