This was my 5th backpacking experience, but my first guided experience. It was absolutely amazing! My guide was Jesse and he did a great job keeping a pace that worked for a group, cooked amazing food, and was very informative of all aspects of the park. In addition, when submitting Half Dome, he was helpful and supportive to get us up and down. He gave us the option to do a sunset or sunrise hike up to Half Dome and the group elected the sunset option. He cooked dinner at the top of Half Dome and we ate as we watched the sunset. It was amazing and we all absolutely loved it. I would recommend Lasting Adventures and our guide Jesse to anyone that is interested in hiking Half Dome.

Lasting Adventures offered phenomenal guided tours of Yosemite. We completed the Yosemite Valley private guided tour, and also the Glacier Point to Half Dome backpacking trip.

Zach and Logan were exceptional leaders. Zach’s knowledge of Yosemite and wisdom on proper procedures and technique made the trip better for everyone. Logan’s quiet support and willingness to help in any way showed a strength of character and love of his work. Our traveling companions were outstanding as well. The physical challenge of the trek coupled with the astounding beauty of our surroundings made an unforgettable memory.

Would like to thank you for your incredibly prompt and attentive responses to any question or email sent your way. We truly enjoyed our tour of Yosemite Valley led by Meg, who was also a stellar guide.

Lasting Adventures gets a full five star rating from us. We hope to be able to travel with you again.

What an incredible trip. First and foremost, our guides Sarah and Lucie were spectacular. They kept us well fed, educated on the history of Yosemite, and entertained throughout the whole experience. The three of us “40 something” guys were all first time backpackers and they made the whole journey very comfortable and memorable for us.

Our summit to Half Dome was amazing. We were scheduled for a Saturday sunset summit but with clouds rolling in, Sarah and Lucie decided it was best to hold off for a Sunday Sunrise journey instead. It was well worth the wait as we were able to make it to the top of Half Dome just as the sun began to rise in the East over the mountains.

I can’t imagine a better way to experience this amazing place. A sincere thank you to Lasting Adventures and especially To Sarah and Lucie! I’ll definitely be back someday!

Our trip was more than we expected because we could never have expected the guides would be so fabulous. Marina and Nicole were guides, friends, coaches, cheerleaders, psychologists, and bad asses. I don’t think I would have made it up and down half Dome without them. I felt safe. I have been on many guided trips: rafting and camping over the years and our guides blew them all away. Both of these women clearly love there job.

As to the company. I borrowed equipment from the company and it was all in great shape-not old and ratty. The food was fabulous: Fresh food (bacon, eggs, pasta…) cooked perfectly while camping miles.

My brother and I took our mother on the four day backpacking trip from Glacier Point to Half Dome. It was a bucket list item for her but she had never backpacked. Our guides, Emma and Matt, did an outstanding job keeping us on schedule and helping her when needed, especially up the cables. They provided the proper gear and provided amazing meals for the duration of the trip (including stir fry while enjoying the sunset on the top of Half Dome!). The guides were also extremely knowledgeable about Yosemite and I enjoyed picking their brains about the park and it’s history. I’d recommend this trip to anybody, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience!! Thank you Lasting Adventures, Matt and Emma rock!!

Myself an 6 girlfriends had an incredible 4 day journey with Lasting Adventures in Yosemite to summit Half Dome. Our guides we’re fun, professional, kind and wonderful camp cooks! Their intimate knowledge of Yosemite, it’s native history, and even each wildflower we passed enhanced our experience and grounded us in the land. We swam in crystal clear rivers, camped under the stars, hiked through amazing scenery and were met with the challenge of summiting Half Dome, which all took place safely thanks to our expert guides. I would highly recommend Lasting Adventures for anyone looking to dive into the best of what Yosemite has to offer!

Amazing Experience!

This was my first time visiting Yosemite and I am so glad I chose to go with Lasting Adventures. The trip was incredibly well planned out, we were taken to some incredible places, looked after (and fed!) very well. Our campsites were beautiful and very remote. Can't recommend this experience more!

Hands down the most amazing trip...ever! Marina and Nicole shared the magic of Yosemite with us in so many ways. From the history of the park to the trails and the surroundings, their knowledge of the park, backpacking, and the great outdoors was so impressive. Their culinary expertise was not lost on our group either! The Half Dome summit will be etched in my memory forever. Nicole and Marina gave me the gloves off their hands to make sure I felt comfortable getting up! And it was pure magic at the top. We hit the guide jackpot in so many ways. Thank you Lasting Adventures for the trip of a lifetime!

The views from Half Dome were amazing. The refreshing swim in the Merced river post hike was fabulous. My guide, John was outstanding. He took the time to get to know me and semi-custom molded our trip.
I was happily exhausted each day.
There was not any downside.
5 Stars !!!!!

Beyond amazing experience! First backpacking trip I've ever gone to and it was an unforgettable experience since day one. The guides from my group, Nicole and Marina made every moment memorable. The food that was given to each of us was incredible, from Mexican burritos, to amazing pasta with homemade sauce. This trip was beyond the best experience I've ever had, and highly recommend.
