Amazing tour! The guides were very knowledgeable and super fun. We were able to see so much more of the park than if we went without a guide. Highly recommend this tour.
Great tours and great guide.

The tour was amazing, and the guide was also very knowledgeable and helpful. He took us the best routes and we were able to see amazing things that we wouldn’t have unless we booked the tour. It is definitely worth more than the price you pay, and would recommend this to everyone when visiting Yosemite.

I booked this trip to allow a friend from Texas who had never been to Yosemite the benefit of seeing all of the beauty this park contains in the most efficient way. I didn't want her to miss anything! Our guide was Mike with Lasting Adventures. He made a couple of 60 year old ladies feel special. So, if you're planning a trip, ask for Mike - He puts a ton of research into every area he guides so he can provide people with the best experience possible. He's very knowledgeable, and a great person! His passion for nature is contagious! I'm so happy I booked this tour!
