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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    This was an amazing trip. 2 days was perfect to get some good hiking done and get a feel for Yosemite. In fact a trip of a lifetime. Parker was a great guide, friendly knowledgeable and relaxed. I cannot recommend the trip or Parker highly enough.

    We’re so glad we went despite the fires near Yosemite. This potentially tricky situation was managed very well. We felt very comfortable in Aiden’s hands, he was very knowledgeable about the (natural) history of the area, and happy to accommodate the wishes of the group. What a luxury to be driven through the park, leaving you to admire the beauty. My one suggestion would be regarding the communication prior to the trip in terms of packing lists and itinerary. It was hard to find the information in a consistent place (most of the group had had to contact the organization). Suggest taking a headlamp and don’t forget a towel. There are no pillows so being able to stuff your jacket in something is a plus.

    Denise was a great guide - warm, knowledgeable, funny and interesting, and she went out of her way to help the group bond.

    Yosemite was absolutely spectacular, however I had hoped the trip would be a smaller group. And for the overnight part, it would have been good to have people stay in the same place and more of a guided experience, as it felt like I had to put a lot of effort into the logistics, which a guided tour should really cover. I would have been prepared to pay a bit more if they'd offered that service.

    My family and I recently went on the tour of Yosemite/Mammoth/Tahoe and had the most amazing time! This experience was perfect for my family; we would have missed out on so many of these incredible spots had we not chosen to take a guided trip. The views and the stops we made were absolutely breathtaking. I have yet to see anything else like it in the states.

    Our tour guide, Jill J. , was amazing! So friendly, so informative, so HELPFUL! She was extremely accommodating to everyone. One passenger on our excursion had even recently gone through knee surgery and Jill was able to cater to her needs without hindering the experience of the whole group. Jill was also able to navigate Lake Tahoe on the Fourth of July so we could see the fireworks (no easy feat). If you’re reading this Jill, you rock! And I’m sure everyone in our excursion group would 1000% agree.

    I honestly don’t know which to rave more about... our tour guide, or the trip! Everything about this adventure was amazing and SO needed. Absolutely will book another trip through Incredible Adventures!

    Our main goals this year were Clouds Rest and Half Dome as my wife has never been on top of Clouds Rest and the last time we were on Half Dome we had to rush back down the valley. We had a private tour with Lasting Adventures that ended up attached to a standard tour only because of Half Dome permit restrictions. This worked out very nicely as we had 2 guides for 4 hikers. The first day was the standard stuff in Yosemite Valley camping at the back-packers camp. The second morning we started our hike at Tuolumne Meadows and went 4 miles to Cathedral Lakes (Lower Cathedral Lake). This was a good warm-up. I was surprised at how nice and serene the views were. The only downside was the mosquitos that were relentless. The 3rd day we hiked 7-8 miles to Sunrise Lakes. We saw sights (peaks, meadows, valleys, lakes, etc.) that most people won't see by staying in the valley. The 4th day, we hiked up Clouds Rest and stayed there for lunch. What a view - perhaps my favorite view of the valley. The first mile or so down from Clouds Rest was a little hard on the knees but it got better. That day, we travelled 8 miles in total to a camp about a half mile from the Half Dome trail. The final day was fantastic - we got up at 3am and were on top of Half Dome right at sunrise. We had breakfast, enjoyed the sunrise, and took in the 360 degree views for almost 2 hours. The rest was all down hill to get our backpacks and head down to the valley. Total mileage this day was 12 miles - a long day for us. Emily and Dawson, our guides from Lasting Adventures, were wonderful. I highly recommend using Lasting Adventures for these Yosemite hikes - they take all the worry away. This was our 3rd trip with them and obviously we are very happy to recommend them.

    I was looking for ways to get to Yosemite without driving myself, and came across Extranomical Tours. I booked with them directly and managed to arrange a 2-night stay at the Yosemite Valley Lodge. They were responsive over email and the booking process was relatively fuss free.

    I was picked up at the Hilton Union Square along with other tour group members, most of them on day trip and a few others staying overnight... for my particular departure they sent 3 buses for pick up so u had to wait for your name to be called before getting onto the bus. A little nerve wrecking to be one of the last ones called, but all good in the end.

    It's semi-guided because the guide (who's also the driver) does not go with you the whole way at the sight seeing stops... we were dropped off at the sight seeing points, given an introduction and instructions for when to return, and then the time is free for you to do what you want, whether it's to walk or sit down for a picnic. If you are staying overnight, the bus drops you off at the Valley Lodge (with the day trippers) and you're free to spend the rest of the time as you please... in my case I had a good wander around the lower valley floor after checking in, went on a guided hike with another tour company on the second day, and took the tram tour on the morning of the third day. On the afternoon of the third day I called ahead to confirm the departure time, and duly got on the bus back to San Francisco without incident.

    Denise was the driver and guide for my trip there and back, and I found her to be professional and an excellent driver. The buses I was on were in good condition, and I liked that it's smaller than the big tour buses.

    I was slightly nervous about this operator as some reviews were less than stellar, but for me everything worked out smoothly and I had a great time in Yosemite. It definitely warrants more than a day trip!

    One thing I would suggest for improvement is they could cater a bit better for visitors who don't understand English... for my group there were quite a few of them and none had headphones (which were supposed to be provided) to listen to the commentary... and ended up looking a little lost most of the time.

    I bought a surprise trip for my husband Father’s Day/birthday present. I messaged Echo directly through Facebook and they responded back to me in a timely manner. I got the whole trip setup very easily. Elisabeth made sure to keep it a surprise and was beyond helpful. She let me know what he needed to bring prior to the trip. They took care of all the permits. We dropped him off at their basecamp and Bryant took him for a solo trip to the Merced. It was beyond what he expected and had an amazing time. My husband fished independently for a couple of years with no luck. Bryant showed him how to fly fish on one trip and my husband caught a couple of fish. He said Bryant was a great teacher. Our parents also surprised him with gift certificates to their store so he could keep practicing. We look forward to going on a family trip with Echo soon. We highly recommend them. You’d be foolish not go!

    This was a great way to see Yosemite. Train transfer from San Fransisco was straigtforward but note that you must get the Amtrak shuttle bus (included in your ticket) to the train station in Oakland before connecting with the train to Fresno. The hotel provides a shuttle service in Fresno and the accomodation was fine but be aware that the day of the Yosemite tour starts early. Tour was excellent with the guide well informed but the distances covered take a long time due to the size of Yosemite. Interesting packed lunch with good sized sandwich but there is an option to get lunch at the hotel restaurant in Yousemite. Lots to see & pack into a day but worth it. Note that you need to leave the park in good time to make the train connection for the return journey.

    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!
