What a awesome experience we had with Lasting adventures! Cara, our guide was absolutely fantastic. She ensured at every step the whole group were happy and comfortable. She was incredibly informative with the history of the park, the terrain, plants and animals. She kept us entertained with quizzes and was wonderfully sociable. She is also the most amazing cook! We ate like kings out there in the wilderness, all on 2 small camp Gas burners, that’s a serious skill!!! I can highly recommend this company for a unforgettable hike in the truly stunning Yosemite park. We will be back!

I have booked 2 trips with Lasting Adventures now. One for my son, he did a 2 week teen back packing trip in 2021. And one for me, I completed a 1 week backpacking trip in Yosemite this year. Both trips exceeded my expectations! The guides are amazing. 10 out of 10! Highly recommend! Well worth the cost!

5 stars for our guide Matt who took us on an 8 hour trek from Sunrise Lakes to Clouds Rest. That was 3000feet of vertical ascent, and kept us motivated, entertained and the time flew by.

Our family of 5 (all adults) wanted a two day hiking tour that was a great taste of Yosemite where we could see the amazing beauty and all the high points not to miss. Lasting Adventures gave us exactly that! Our guide Dyson was so friendly, knowledgeable and personable, he immediately seemed like one of the family! First day we hiked Yosemite Valley, seeing Vernal Falls, El Capitan, Half Dome, Sub Dome, and more. Second day was even more beautiful in Tuolumne Meadows and stops at Olmsted Point and a climb to Pothole Dome with a gorgeous 360 view at top. Thank you Lasting Adventures for helping easily navigate such a big park, see the most amazing sites and make many lasting family memories!

We booked a day hike with Lasting Adventures for our trip to Yosemite. Our tour guide Zac was fantastic. He called us the day before to suggest an alternative walk as the one we had booked wouldn't have been so good due to dry weather. He was prompt, polite, knowledgeable and great fun. Can't recommend enough. It was a fantastic day and the scenery is like nothing we had ever experienced.
