My son and I (both tax accountants, too long cooped up working indoors throughout the pandemic) recently enjoyed a three-day private guided backpacking trip of the North Rim of the Yosemite Valley with Last Adventures. The trip met all our expectations; we had a great time. Our guide was Kara. Kara’s love of her work and knowledge of Yosemite National Park made the trip a success. She planned all the details, provided excellent gear, and made sure everything worked out as planned. We look forward to our next backcountry adventure in Yosemite with Lasting Adventures.

Lasting Adventures and more specifically our guide, Zachary Naegele, made my trip to Yosemite a dream vacation! It was stress-free because every detail was covered from food and transportation to clear meeting instructions and itinerary. Zachary was a joy to have on hikes because he was knowledgeable, competent and personable. He took a hike that would have been fun and made it magical by explaining the history and ecology of the area we were hiking. He matched our athletic pace and often let us lead so we didn't feel "pressured" to keep up as all the people in my group were not used to the altitude. His calm and confident control of the situation when I got scared trying to summit Lembert Dome was priceless and I couldn't have asked for anyone better when I panicked! I can't say enough good things about Zachary and Lasting Adventures. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!

We had many great moments on this backpacking trip but what really made this trip big time fun was our guide Bella! Her experience, enthusiasm for Yosemite and the outdoors, and her amazing way to provide food still has me talking about our trip! At 58 years old I was a bit concerned about doing the cable half-dome climb, but with Bella's leadership and encouragement I did it!!
