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.

    A spectacular trip made even more special by Crossroads Tours guide, Daniel, a local man whose knowledge was exceptional. He made us feel really welcome and the stories he told were so informative and interesting. I would recommend Crossroad Tours to anyone. Thank you

    We booked this excursion as we had never been to Yosemite before and really didn’t know what to expect and where to start.
    We have a 10 and 6 year old and didn’t want to go off wandering aimlessly and also I read about the parking being very busy so we didn’t want to spend all our time looking for spaces, driving to and from the main spots.

    Nate was our guide and he was a walking encyclopaedia on everything Yosemite! We went at our own pace and rested when needed .We done a couple of small walks (1 mile or so) whilst seeing some of the waterfalls and valley floor. We also jumped in and out of a car ,that sat us all comfortably, to see a good few more sights such as El Capitan, half dome, tunnel view etc.
    We feel like we done all the major attractions and Nate gave us lots of ideas of where to return and hike too the following day, which we did.
    We learnt so much from Nate, all of which my children found very interesting and remembered all the facts much better than I did!

    The lunch organised by Echo Tours was fresh and tasty and great value. Also the entire booking process and communication was perfect, we are so very glad we found Echo Tours when we were looking.
    We would highly recommend this tour and Nate, many thanks again for a fantastic day.

    We had a great day in Yosemite with our guide Mike who took us to all the beautiful and interesting spots. Very nice and knowledgable. Definitely to be recommended if you only have one day and want to get as much as possible out of your visit to Yosemite.

    My family and I had an absolutely amazing day, with our brilliant, knowledgeable guide and driver, Mike S.
    We saw the most beautiful sites, and Mike was incredibly flexible to any requests we had!
    It was a perfect day out which we enjoyed immensely - would recommend for any families with teens and young adults, as my sister and I (15/20 years old) found the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable and engaging.
    A once in a lifetime opportunity which I will never forget! Thank you 💚

    We walked the Mist Trail to the top of Navarra Falls with our boys aged 14 and 17. The view was stunning and the cool water streams at the top made a perfect lunch break before we decended on the John Muir Trail. The only down side to this walk is that there are quite a lot of people on this trail.

    Incredible experience overall. Having Bryant as our tour guide was phenomenal. He’s very passionate about his work, and knowledgeable. He took us to a few different spots were unfortunately we didn’t catch anything, but we had a blast. He made sure there wasn’t a dull moment. Our fishing was cut a little short due to it being almost 100° so he took us to this gorgeous swimming hole where we spent eating our lunch and hanging out until we were exhausted. I’d recommend everyone book a trip with him and Echo Coop. They made us feel very welcomed and will def be visiting very soon. We also stayed in their air bnb which I will leave a separate review for. Thanks again Bryant.

    Very disappointed. Hardly got to see anything only stopped three times. $1,200 down the drain. Nice driver but owners are extremely rude and unprofessional. Asked for partial discount since we hardly got to see anything but owner hung up on me. Poor customer service. Expensive tour. Not worth it. Look elsewhere.

    I have been on several guided fly fishing trips now with Echo Adventures including my first venture into the sport. I have learned alot thanks to the excellent coaching from guides Bryant and Dillon. The entire team is very friendly and knowledgeable. A top notch and very memorable experience every time I have dealt with them and highly recommend them for all of your fishing, hiking as well as all of the other excursions that they have to offer.

    Great audio, but it did stick a few times and did not pick up so I had to restart the feed. It was informative and helpful and gave places to stop.

    So cool to hear John Muir's writing while you drive around yosemite! I'm not usually a fan of tours, but this one felt different and more personal. Instead of facts its all well written literature. Would definitely take this tour again

    I'm so glad we booked a full-day tour with Photo Safari Yosemite! Ethan was our very knowledgable guide and we got to see and learn so much about the Yosemite Valley. We had our two daughters with us (6 and 10) and our two dogs. Ethan took us to all the best spots and made sure we got the best photos. This was really a perfect choice for our family and we enjoyed every minute of it. Also, I'm so happy we got some epic family pics to cherish forever. Thanks so much Ethan!

    As complete beginners to fly fishing we had an amazing day. We fished as a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 12 and 16. Our professional guide was brilliant with the boys. He engaged with them immediatly and inspired them to listen to all his advice to ensure that they caught fish.
    Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate, not only about fly fishing but also the Yosemite park ecology and history.
    I would highly recommend this adventure and the team at Echo

    The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Daniel, made the trip fun, enjoyable, and memorable. Daniel took us everywhere we wanted to go and gave us the history of the Yosemite Valley. He is a lifelong resident and an excellent guide. Great job !!!!
