    Ahhhh, right. I would presume they go through the middle, which would be the quickest way there (unless there is something specific they need to stop and show you along the way).

    Couldn’t tell you which highway, not sure anyone could. Probably all depends on the driver.

    I’m not too sure why you would want to know the freeways and stuff but I can tell you from Yosemite to San Francisco, you will probably take like 3 different freeways and windy roads. From San Francisco to Los Angeles you will probably going down CA 101, since that tour stops in Santa Barbara and it is a much more scenic drive than going through mid-state.

    When I did it in 2003 we took the regular highway from San Fran to Santa Barbara and the Pacific Coast Highway from Santa Barbara to LA.
