Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked this excursion as we had never been to Yosemite before and really didn’t know what to expect and where to start.
We have a 10 and 6 year old and didn’t want to go off wandering aimlessly and also I read about the parking being very busy so we didn’t want to spend all our time looking for spaces, driving to and from the main spots.

Nate was our guide and he was a walking encyclopaedia on everything Yosemite! We went at our own pace and rested when needed .We done a couple of small walks (1 mile or so) whilst seeing some of the waterfalls and valley floor. We also jumped in and out of a car ,that sat us all comfortably, to see a good few more sights such as El Capitan, half dome, tunnel view etc.
We feel like we done all the major attractions and Nate gave us lots of ideas of where to return and hike too the following day, which we did.
We learnt so much from Nate, all of which my children found very interesting and remembered all the facts much better than I did!

The lunch organised by Echo Tours was fresh and tasty and great value. Also the entire booking process and communication was perfect, we are so very glad we found Echo Tours when we were looking.
We would highly recommend this tour and Nate, many thanks again for a fantastic day.

We had an amazing day snowshoeing and hiking with Bryant! It was a lot of fun for our entire family! Bryant helped customize our trip based on what we all wanted to see and our activity level. They also took care of many details to make the day even easier for us such as water bottles, top of the line equipment, and an amazing lunch!!

He was great to spend the day with and provided a ton of knowledge on the area, plants, animals and the history of the park! We snowshoed through the Giant Sequoias and hiked around the lake at Hetch Hetchy!

It was a beautiful day and full of fun adventure!! I would highly recommend this company if you want an amazing guide trip in Yosemite!!

We just had the pleasure of spending the day with Bryant for some snowshoeing and hiking adventures. It was an awesome day!

Bryant has incredible knowledge and is so much fun. Plus you can custom-order your own lunch so you don't have to worry about any picky eaters in your group. It is so easy and the lunches are incredible.

The equipment is top-of-the-line and in excellent condition.

If you are lucky enough to spend the day with Bryant, make sure he tells you his bear encounter story.

We had a great guide, he was very knowledgable. We only had another expectation that we should take a hike and it was more a tour to the highlights.
