This was our second summer with Lasting Adventures, Inc. in Yosemite National Park. Both of my children attended their Youth Summer Program, while I was on a custom trip with the amazing Director of Lasting Adventures, Inc. I've never been happier. My girls were in a rain storm for two days and while I was concerned, THEY LOVED IT! I was particularly fond of the excellent customer service that Scott Gehrman provided. My blood sugar dropped one morning and he assisted me without question. I am a huge fan of this non-profit company and hope that everyone in their lives gets to experience the beauty of Yosemite with a guide service as amazing as Lasting Adventures, Inc.

Lasting Adventures made our wedding dreams come true. As we began planning our Glacier Point Wedding we knew we definitely wanted to backpack and definitely wanted to conquer climbing Half Dome. We spoke with Scott before booking ,and he was great with answering all of our questions and addressed any concerns. He made sure we knew the details of the trip, how to prepare physically and what we could expect.

Because of our schedule and commitments we actually did our 4 day hike before the wedding. A pre-honeymoon if you will. Best decision ever! I can't tell you how we felt standing on Glacier Point looking out and knowing that just 2 and 3 days prior, we had climbed Clouds Rest and Half Dome. As if weddings aren't emotional enough! The days leading up to the wedding were a very special, magical, peaceful, meaningful experience that we could have NEVER accomplished on our own.

Sam and Lydia were our exclusive guides for the trip and I can't say enough about them and the passion that they have for what they do. We never worried about getting lost, or having enough water, or food...omg, the food! Heavenly! We felt like Royalty out there. They set up our tent for us, cooked for us, cleaned up, and built fires every night.

You can not go wrong with this Adventure Team! You will make memories and if you choose as we did, to accomplish unimaginable challenges, they will make it happen. When my confidence was challenged, Sam and Lydia were right there getting me back in the game.

We also had a chance to meet Scott afterwards and see a little bit of the operations of this company. The passion for the youth and what they do is just a class act!

We are looking forward to more anniversary adventures in Yosemite with Lasting Adventures, Scott, Sam, Lydia and the rest of this team!

My daughter and I took the 4 day backpacking hike with a young British couple and our guide, Mike. I'm in my 50s, and I hiked to many places before, even trekked in the Himalayas. That Half Dome was a real thriller to me! Having said that, we made it - we climbed Cloud's Rest in the morning, and Half Dome late afternoon in one day! We arrived the camp site at 9 pm that evening, trekking through the forest and bumped into 2 deers hunting for supper! What an an everlasting experience...... I thoroughly enjoyed the hike, the scenery is beautiful, and the people and the guide were wonderful and friendly. The only thing I missed was a full moon. I will synchronize it by checking the Full Moon Calendar when I plan my next backpacking trip with Lasting Adventures.

I cannot say enough about how much fun I had with Lasting Adventures. I knew that the 2-day backpacking hike up to Half Dome would be difficult but Scott and Brayden made it so enjoyable. I had such a positive experience that every person thats asked me about my trip I say they have to totally do it and book with Lasting Adventures. Thanks Scott and Brayden for making my first experience in Yosemite and Half Dome a memoriable one!
