We booked the Extended Day Hike which was for the Half Dome Hike. Scott and Braden were fantastic guides. Informative, friendly, good humored, knowledgable with great stories, and most importantly patient and made us feel well taken care of. It was a long and strenuous hike but they managed to balance the performance of the group i.e. we had a good amount of breaks to take a breather, yet at the same time managed to set a speed to make sure we were able to complete the 17 miles day hike within the time given.
The view was phenomenal!
We would highly recommend them for any other groups and families for this and other types of hikes!

We booked a 3 day 2 night wilderness experience with Lasting Adventures and had an unforgettable, wondeful time. Our guides, Mike and Sam, could not have been more helpful, attentive, cheerful and informative. The trip was very well organised, and included a great variety of views and terrain. The walking was tough at times (it was very hot), but always manageable and rewarding. The food was suprisingly good and plentiful. We (Mum and Dad plus girl of 13 and boy of 11) are reasonably fit - it was not easy, but you don't need to be super fit. If you get the chance to conquer Half Dome then it is definitely a highlight, but is not for the faint hearted - the final stage is very steep and cannot be achieved without the use of the cables which requires a head for heights and decent upper body strength. Two nights under canvass was enough for us, but if getting away from the beaten track and looking for adventure is your thing, I cannot imagine a better experience.

My 3 friends and I joined Scott and Braden on a custom 3 day 2 night backpacking trip. They showed us the more intimate parts of Yosemite, taking us to Polydome lakes and the Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp. Although it rained on us for 3 straight hours, Scott and Braden always had great attitudes and were very accommodating. They were both very knowledgeable, amazing cooks, and had great personalities. They showed us areas of Yosemite that were less traveled but equally beautiful. We will definitely be back and look forward to doing it again!

My wife and 4 kids joined Scott and Braden for a full day hike and then spent an evening going to a "secret" cave. My kids loved it and both Scott and Braden were very engaging with my guys (ages 10,12,13,17) as well as aware of each child's hiking capabilities. They were both highly knowledgable about the trails and park and were simply a fun group to have guide us on our hike. A must if you really want to experience Yosemite. Great people and we cannot wait to do it again.

My son recently went on one of the youth trips and his first words when I picked him up were 'sign me up for next year'. He had an amazing time. Claire and Braden were great guides and worked so well with the kids. He will definitely do it again and we are looking into doing a custom family trip with Scott.
