Where does your Yosemite Trip depart from?
5 Isadora Duncan Lane — near the corner of Taylor and Post St. in downtown San Francisco.
What time does your Yosemite Trip depart / return home to San Francisco?
Our trips depart @ 7:30 a.m. on the first day of tour (check-in @ 7 a.m.), and we arrive home in San Francisco @ 10 p.m. on our final day of tour.
What should I bring?
You can bring a jacket, a change of clothes, comfortable shoes for walking, sunscreen and your toothbrush. At night, we have all the camping equipment to keep your warm. Bring your swimsuit in summer.
Can I store my luggage?
Yes. We HIGHLY recommend leaving your larger suitcases in our secure storage shed in San Francisco. It makes your life easier, and your legroom plentiful.
Do I need my own camping equipment?
No. We have tents, blankets, pillows, all the cooking equipment and warm sleeping bags. All you need to do is show up and be genuine.
Do we share a tent?
Probably. You can share with a friend, or if you're traveling solo, we can pair you with a traveler of the same sex. You might get lucky and have a tent to yourself, but don't count on it.
How do I pay for food?
All your food costs are included in your tour price for our Yosemite Trip (except dinner on the way home from Yosemite).
For the Dirty South Trip, the food is free but only on the camping portions of the tour. In other words, when we're in the woods, we'll cover your food cost.
What do you cook for meals?
We cook what feels good and discuss the menu with each group before we depart. If you have any special dietary requirements, please contact us.
Do you have an age limit?
We do not, however most of our trips are activity-based. We camp & hike, we laugh, we sometimes get rained on—it's all part of the adventure. If you can handle that, come along for a good time. Our Dirty South Trip is 21+ only, though. (Average age on our trips is 21-35 years of age).
How large are the groups?
Our groups run anywhere from 3-8 people. We want the feeling of camping and road tripping with your friends.
Are we required to tip?
It was only after MUCH debate we chose to include your tip in your tour price. So to answer your question, no. However for other businesses (not Orange Sky Co.), we recommend you tip. It’s an American custom…and good manners.
