This trip exceeded our expectations! Our guide WES was amazing- great vibes, great stories, and full of knowledge/experience. All we had to do was show up and everything else was taken care of in order to have a great time. We all worked together to have a full camping experience without the headache of preparing all the gear and food. Wes knew exactly where to take us based on the weather each day and held us to a schedule that allowed for just the right amount of time at each activity/site so that we were not rushed and could take it all in, but also were able to see all the highlights within the 3 days. Our favorite parts of Yosemite was the hike up Misty Trail passed Vernon Falls as well as the incredible views from Glacier Point. That being said, every part of the park is beautiful- we couldn't get enough. Everyone in the group was friendly and brought a great adventurous attitude. We enjoyed sharing stories about life and other adventures with our new pals. We would totally recommend Incredible Adventures

We are so pleased and flattered you had such a great time on tour. Three days in Yosemite is never enough but it sounds like with the help of Wes you were able to take full advantage of the time. Many thanks for leaving us a review!

A really positive camping experience, with a great leader, Jill. The 3-day trip offered a variety of activities - walking, swimming, driving through the most amazing landscape, fabulous fresh meals, and the opportunity to chill and relax or do some great walks. Jill was a terrific guide, a safe and skilled driver, and provided a range of explanations on the geology, habitat, animals etc of the region. She went out of her way to make sure all of us were very well looked after, a great communicator and great sense of humor and passion for the environment. Thank you!

We had a small group of 7 for our 3 day tour. The spots in the park we visited were moderate level hikes all of short distances (max 5 miles round trip), but still had incredible views. A great mix of guided time and open/flexible time—our last day in the valley our guide gave us many options of potential hikes, bike rides, sights, or swims we could enjoy. Our guide was knowledgeable and everyone was open to chatting and making new friends.

For Covid—a lot of time is spent in the van with the group members driving to and from as well as inside the park. I chose to bring my own individual tent (which was approved when I asked), and all group members were pretty good about wearing masks when inside the van. Most likely if any of the members of your group had Covid, you would still be exposed even with these precautions just because of the amount of time spent together in the van and outdoors.

This trip was phenomenal and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors. Aiden was our tour guide and he was amazing - friendly, helpful and really great at bonding the tour group together. He offered several recommendations and helpful advice for our hikes and also made sure we got to see as much as possible in the 3 days were were at Yosemite.
Our camping area was comfortable with showers and hot water for anyone who wanted it. The food was also great and there were several opportunities to buy snacks before we got into the Yosemite valley.
I hope to visit again and will definitely look up tours from this company in the future!

What a place Yosemite is. Breathtakingly beautiful - jaw dropping scenery. Aiden was our guide. He bent over backwards to makes us all feel happy and comfortable and never seemed to dip in his energy levels to give us the best experience possible. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Our group bonded really well and our kids have great memories of the places they saw and the people they met.

my family and I had a wonderful time. Apart from the slightly inadequate sleeping bags it was perfect. Our group was excellent. Half young and half older. The NY'ers were a hoot as were the Aussies. The German ladies were so nice and fun to be with (and cute!). The Portugese lady also was very nice and helpful. The giant Brit was hilarious to talk with. The Italian man was very nice (not at all lecherous!). The tall German man was a quiet but funny person. Of course our guide was "incredible" so energetic and well spoken and provided everything we needed.

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.

This was my first camping experience and it was great. Our tour guide, Aiden, was knowledgable, informative and friendly. In addition to this, the group on the tour were amazing too. We all got on really well and enjoyed each others company.
Yosemite is beautiful and I felt I got to see as much as could be fit in to the 2.5days.
There were a couple of things that could be improved on, e.g. more details on the itinerary at the beginning of the trip, and better directions for the meeting point.
I would recommend using Incredible Adventures for any trips to Yosemite. It was worth the time and monies spent!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

The park itself is breathtaking & this tour ensures that you see plenty of what Yosemite has to offer on this 3 day tour. Our guide, Chad was incredibly knowledgable and ensured that the hikes were tailored to our capabilities and desires. We had ample opportunity to explore, take photos and soak in the views at multiple vantage points. I had an absolute blast driving through the park listening to tunes and getting to know fellow travellers around the campfire. Thank you Chad & Incredible adventures for memories that will last a lifetime!

This was my first camping trip in Yosemite and Inc Adventures made it so easy and memorable! Buck was our tour guide, he was knowledgeable about the park's history and habitats that I've got some interesting stories to share with friends and family. We had a great time cooking outdoor and doing yoga with one of our tour members, was super relaxing after long hour hikes. Would definitely go back, highly recommended it with Inc Adv!
