Additional Info
  • Children 17 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult
  • Tours are arranged on a demand basis and require a minimum of 5 passengers to guarantee departure
  • Important: Please note if you need a sleeping bag and any dietary requirements in the 'Special Requirements' field when booking
  • Camping
  • Camping is easy, but cooperation is important. Don't worry if you've never camped before; many people haven't. You will be supplied with all the camping equipment necessary for a trip of this nature, using quality tents, camping and cooking equipment. Everybody is expected to participate in setting up and breaking down the camp, and the professional guides are available to attend to your needs to ensure a positive camping experience. We camp at the best campsites, with hot showers and modern facilities. Swimming is available nearby. During booking, please note if you will need a sleeping bag
  • Tents
  • We use 4-person tents but only have two people in each. In the case of odd numbers in your party, there is a chance you will be paired with another person of the same gender from a different party.
  • Food
  • You will be provided with the food, but not the chefs. You guys are the cooks, waiters, dishwashers and, of course, the guests. On leaving the city, we stop at a supermarket and buy everything we need. The fare is a mixture of chicken, beef and vegetarian, all-you-can-eat and very tasty. Most people eat better with us than they have done previously on their travels. Please inform us of any dietary requirements/concerns at the time of booking.
  • Transportation
  • Tour operator uses comfortable 15-passenger vans with dual air-conditioning and stereo sound. Our vans are fueled by biodiesel, a vegetable oil-based diesel fuel, to promote green business. All of the vans have large roof racks for your luggage and the camping equipment.
  • What to bring
  • On your journeys, you will need sneakers or hiking boots, shorts, T-shirts, swimwear, sun protection, a water bottle, flashlight and something warmer in case there is a change in weather.
  • Weather
  • June through September in Yosemite is hot and sunny with occasional afternoon showers. May and October days are warm with cooler nights. As with all mountain environments, weather can vary quickly, so a layer of warm clothing is a good idea.

With the 3-day trip, we were lucky to be guided by Rourke. The landscapes are magnificent and the atmosphere is soothing. Beautiful walking, pretty mountain and a very involved and pleasant guide. This allows you to fill up and disconnect. Thanks for all!

I did the 3 day camping tour of Yosemite in June. Yosemite itself is stunning, and purely because of that I had a fabulous time.  But the actual tour experience doesn't live up to the destination.  First, the guide (I think his name was Matt from memory) was over 45 mins late
