We had a blast hiking with Kara. She was very knowledgeable from history of the park to names of different locations. She made a seemingly straightforward tour into an interesting adventure, especially with some of the exclusive shortcuts she showed us. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get a full experience of Yosemite in a single day.

We’re from the UK and Yosemite has been a place we’ve been wanting to visit for many years. We read the guide books, watched videos, brought the maps etc, we wanted to do and see as much as we could in a short time so thought the best way for us to do this was to have a guided tour. We are so pleased we did. We went for the private tour a bit more expensive, however worth every penny. Our guide was Caber, what a fabulous young man. He was knowledgeable, fun and his enthusiasm for the great outdoors was fantastic such an inspirational young man. We had great conversations whilst enjoying our hike, we covered so much of the valley in the little over 9 hours we spent with him, we had a loose plan of what we wanted to see and we saw so much more. If we had done this ourselves there is no way we would of seen everything we saw with Caber, he knew all the best routes/trails and the best way to do them. We also drove with him to El Cap after we had finished at the valley and what he doesn’t know about climbing isn’t worth knowing . We stayed for a while watching the climbers whilst he chatted away about different types of climbing and pointed out the different routes.
We hiked a total of 14 miles and we set our own pace, no matter what your ability is or what your interested in, the day all depends on you, on what you want to do, you rest when you want, spend time to enjoy the places you want to. We took a packed lunch, snacks and water with us. Oh and Caber took great photos and also suggested other hikes and places for us to visit whilst in the area, which we did. If you’re thinking about doing a tour, just do it, if you’re anything like us you won’t regret it.

This trip was on our bucket list and we wanted to experience all Yosemite had to offer. This tour did just that for us . Our tour guide Caber was awesome, very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make it a very memorable experience. It was so nice to see him helping other guests when needed and also to see him picking up trash along the way . I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Yosemite to book a tour with this company. You won’t be disappointed.

We went on this trip at the end of July, and our guide Meg was awesome! It truly makes exploring the Valley so much more enjoyable when you don't have to plan or look at maps. My husband and two boys, ages 7 and 9, and I could not have been happier with our guide Meg. She literally answered every question my kids threw at her, and this in itself is an amazing accomplishment, but she also tailored our trip to both our activity level and interests. We walked 9 miles over the course of several hours, and the boys didn't even seem to notice until the end. Also, I am not particularly fit, so this walk was peppered with plenty of stops and breaks. She even took the boys through a secret cave during the hike. They said it was their favorite part of the trip. After we were done, Meg spent time pointing out other things we might want to do during our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone. Ot was amazing.

Caber was a great guide. He engaged our teenagers (no small feat) and set a pace for us that was challenging, but not too difficult. We saw the 'greatest hiots' of Yosemite' but also some hidden gems. Highly recommend!

We had 4 day hikes with our fantastic guide Zach. The hikes were beautiful, more than we would have taken on our own. Zach is a great guide, very knowledgeable about Yosemite as well as nature in general. We all really enjoyed our time with him. We would highly recommend him!

Our tour guide was Trey and he was awesome! We learned some interesting facts about Yosemite that entertained us and our kids. We had a great experience as a family. I highly recommend this tour to see the best of Yosemite. Trey also recommended hikes for us to do on our own during the rest of our time in Yosemite.

We booked two full day private tours with Lasting Adventures. One day was spent in the valley and the other was in the high country. Our tour guide for both days was Zach. He was fantastic. Very accommodating and filled with lots of knowledge. We had a great time both days with him. You could really tell that he enjoyed his work and the area in which he worked. We would definitely book with Lasting Adventures again should we ever make our way back to Yosemite. We were so inspired that we had thoughts of camping for a night in the high country. If you knew me and my family, camping is not high on our list of things to do. The Holiday Inn is "roughing it" for us. We'll keep this on the list of life experiences that need to be checked off the list.

Our family had a fantastic all day tour of the valley with Chris this April. Chris has a wealth of experience backpacking and hiking in Yosemite and it showed. He was full of historic tales and also brought out the naturalist in us, showing how to differentiate between a Ponderosa pine and a Sequoia, and more. He was very patient with us [flat-landers] and interacted with our 9 and 11 year-old splendidly. Our son is still telling the story of the Glacier Point chickens to all his friends. We highly recommend the tour. The only criticism we have is to have the meeting time accurate in communications. The emails stated the meeting time was 8 AM and then at the end of the email, in smaller font, it stated tours through April meet at 9:30 AM. This is easily remedied, but it did cause a little confusion. Again, we highly recommend Chris and Lasting Adventures! We look forward to using them for longer trips when we have teenagers!

We did the introduction to Yosemite 6 hour walk. It was perfect. We saw all the top sites and were given advice on how to see the other things we wanted to do. Friendly and informative guide who obviously loved the valley. Highly recommend.
