17 members of my Trail Life USA troop and I split into 3 crews with 3 guides from Lasting Adventures and spend 5 nights backpacking in Yosemite. All 3 crews had an amazing trip. The guides were great. They were knowledgeable and work with the youth in all aspects of the trek.

Booked a last minute vacation for my family with Lasting Adventures and could not be happier. We did the Amazing Sunsets Backpacking trip and had an amazing time. Our guide August took care of us, cooked wonderful meals and made sure we were comfortable and safe at all times.
