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.

I'd highly recommend Lasting Adventures to get into the back country of Yosemite and away from the crowds. Everything was arranged including permits for the back country and for entry to the park. Lasting Adventures supplied all the excellent gear that made it possible to have a great experience with minimal planning. Trey was an excellent guide who prepared real meals at our campsites instead of the usual dehydrated meals I'm used to. He was flexible when problems arose and rearranged the itinerary which became necessary. This is a challenging experience, and it is easy to overestimate the ability to hike miles with a 35 pound backpack. I highly recommend this trip. The limitations on masks and social distancing had been removed before we started the trip, and all of us were vaccinated, so Covid wasn't a consideration.

My husband and I just returned from our Lasting Adventure's trip to Yosemite. We backpacked with a group of 7 other people from 'Backpacker's Camp' to Mae Lake, up to Mt Hoffman, Cloud's Rest, and finally completed the trip with an amazing last day summiting Half Dome at sunrise. It. Was. Incredible!!
Our guides, Eric and Aida, immediately made us feel comfortable and excited. I can't say enough good things about them. Their passion for the wilderness, people, and their career as a guide is contagious. Aida was so generous - she even gave me her camp shoes to wear on the last day because my shoes had given me such bad blisters. Eric tried to scare us by sharing scary campfire stories, but instead had us all laughing so hard. If you have the chance to go on a Lasting Adventures trip - please do it! There is nothing like sleeping under the stars, meeting new people, and leaving the high stress of the world behind for a few days.

Amazing and challenging experience! LA’s upfront communication was very responsive and helpful, which was very appreciated on our first trip to Yosemite.. Once in the park, our guides Jesse and Aida were experts in all things including Yosemite history/sites/plants, backpacking, backcountry cooking, and being funny. Our borrowed gear was top of the line and perfect for experienced or new hikers. Our guides pushed when needed (like seeing Half Dome at sunset!) and helped whenever we needed. Would highly recommend and hope to come back again!

Just finished the Three Summits trip with Lasting Adventures and had a great time. Our guide, Nick, did an amazing job on the trip to provide an excellent experience while working through the challenges of running a wilderness trip during the Covid-19 pandemic. The plans and procedures that Lasting Adventures put in place made me feel comfortable to do the trip during the pandemic. The itinerary for this trip is perfect with a final day that is epic. Lasting Adventures took care of all the logistics and details so that I was able to fully enjoy my vacation. Highly recommend Lasting Adventures and this specific trip. By the way, the meals were amazing - opened my mind to the possibilities of back country cooking.

What an amazing experience! I traveled by myself to Yosemite to meet with my Lasting Adventures group and not only did I make an incredible group of friends, but I also felt completely comfortable and safe throughout my journey. It was my first time backpacking and my guides, Eric and Aida, made the trip extremely stress-free. The hiking was definitely strenuous at times and was a challenge for me but the views were absolutely worth it. Eric and Aida were extremely knowledgeable about a multitude of topics, and I left feeling very fulfilled through the whole experience. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has an interest in backpacking and seeing the wonderful views that Yosemite has to offer! Lasting Adventures truly made everything go so smoothly and I only want to come back for more!!

Let’s just say that my time on the Three Summits trip by Lasting Adventures was the most amazing adventure / challenge that my son and I have ever done. God’s beauty in Yosemite has to be a glimpse of heaven, but we would not have seen it without our incredible guides Aida and Eric. Their professionalism and skills of their trade were phenomenal while also opening themselves to share their lives with each of us. As one of us on our trip said about the conversations that we had with each other and with our guides was that, “It was therapy”. I wanted to learned a ton about backpacking in the back country and I did just that with their help. I came knowing that I would see some amazing mountain heights, but I didn’t know I would walk away with 7 new friends and memories that I will remember for the rest of my life. If you are even thinking about going on a trip with Lasting Adventures; stop thinking and invest in the biggest adventure / challenge of your life.

I wanted to go backpacking in Yosemite, but I wasn't ready to go out on my own. Lasting Adventures made it accessible in the most incredible way. If you've never seen the high country of Yosemite in person, and want to challenge yourself, this is the way to do it! Pictures do not do justice to the sights you'll see on this trip. The hike can be rigorous at times with scrambling and navigating rocky terrain while ascending / descending with either your full pack or a day pack. Train on hills with a weighted pack to best prepare for what you'll encounter!

The group I ended up with was excellent. We enjoyed each other's company, and encouraged each other through the physical challenges. Our guide Mike had us going at a steady pace that ensured there was room in the schedule for taking brief rest breaks, and regularly checked in with how the group was doing. As other reviews have mentioned, the meals that he prepared on trail were quite tasty.

Had the best experience in Yosemite! Did the Three Summits tour with Lasting Adventures and our guide, Nicole, was awesome! She was detailed-oriented and kept us abreast of our schedule and facts like miles traveled, altitude, etc. She was also an awesome cook! We are vegetarian and she accommodated us perfectly with delicious, healthy meals - best backpacking food we've ever had. We borrowed all the gear from Lasting Adventures and it was all really good - the tent and sleeping bag were super warm. We can't wait to come again and hike more of Yosemite. We hope to bring our family or even send our kids on one of their youth adventures!
