I did day tour with one of the guides in at the end of August 2017. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgable and always keeping out for our safety. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if this is your first time.

We only had a single day to see Yosemite and decided to book a tour with lasting adventures. Emilia was a fantastic guide with great knowledge of the park's history and a good feeling for what we wanted to see. She introduced us to some hidden gems of Yosemite and showed us more than we could have expected to see... More

A truly remarkable hiking and camping experience in Yosemite Nat'l Park. We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery, our group, and the camping experience. I will say that it was a very demanding trip from a physical standpoint, but our guide Matt made sure we didn't get in over our heads and helped us achieve (perhaps) more than we thought we could....

Exceeded my expectations. The Lasting Adventures hike from Granite Point to Half Dome was my very first backpacking adventure & I couldn't be happier. I would choose L.A. again in the future & have recommended them to my friends and family.

I was looking for an adventure on our Yosemite trip that would allow me to see more of the scenery than most people get to see. I wanted a challenging day-long trip that would stretch me physically. Being a first-timer to Yosemite (I am from south Florida) and flying solo on this part of our trip, I wanted a guide... More

Matt was a fabulous cook AND a great guide! He definitely took the needs and interests of the group into consideration, talking through hike options with us. So glad he did! The Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne was breathtaking. I can't wait to visit Yosemite again!

Great father/son multi-day backpacking trip. Scenery and guide service were great. Highlight was getting up at 3:00am for breakfast and leaving at 3:45am for a night hike to the top of Half Dome to watch the sunrise. Great day and great trip. Two guides allowed those that wished to hike at a faster pace to do so and those that... More

The May Lake to Snow Creek backpacking trip was great for my 9 year old son and me. Our guide was fantastic and went out of his way to make it a fabulous vacation!

Our guides Graham and Jenna were phenomenal. They were a great team and really made the trip amazing. Jenna was such a wonderful cheerleader, I don't think I could have made it to the top of half dome without her encouragement. Their expertise and guidance really made this trip top notch.
