My daughter and I had an EXCELLENT adventure with this tour! We saw the most amazing sights, we are still overwhelmed with how far we actually backpacked in just 4 days, and we can't wait to come back and do another adventure with this amazing group of people! Our guides were excellent, a big shout out to Braden, Scott, John and Austin. Austin got me up Half Dome, and John got me down, without them, I think I might still be stuck on those cables! What a fantastic experience, lots of wonderful memories, highly recommended!

My family (three adults and two nine year olds) took a 7.5 mile hike with Lasting Adventures at Yosemite in late July 2013. Our guides, Camber and Rory, were terrific. They were personable, friendly and very knowledgeable about the park, our hike and the flora and fauna. Two of us were slower walkers, and Camber and Rory split up so that the faster hikers had one guide and the slower walkers the other. We really appreciated their patience. We hiked from the Glacier Point parking lot to Sentinel Dome and Taft Point. Amazing views! I would highly recommend Lasting Adventures!

Out guides were great, Sam, cambra and Rory were personable, knowledgeable, and smart. You've got to be in very good shape to do the climb as it can be super strenuous. Guides were encouraging and funny. I would had turned around at sub dome had I done this by myself...the view from the top is just majestic....

Just got back from sending our son (6th grade) and his buddies. Five days four nights 20+ miles of hiking. Rained everyday, caught fish, and they created a lifetime of memories. They raved about the animals, food, fun, and GREAT guides Sam, Trevor and Colin. I was a little apprehensive about sending a 11 yr old even though all the boys live in Truckee and are used to mountains, camping and being outdoors. Sam and the guides help make a lifetime of memories for our boys kudos to them. The four are recruiting friends for 2014!!! Great preseason work out right before football also.

My son just got back from 2 weeks with Lasting Adventures. The trip was actually back to back 1 week trips with a layover day in Tuolumne Meadows. Both weeks had completely different routes, including Half Dome and Clouds Rest, so he got to see many parts of the back country. The other backpackers ranged in age from 11-18. Yet this type of trip attracts people with similar interests, so the age range didn't matter. He met some really great people form all over the world that he plans on staying in contact with. The trip was well organized, the food was good, the leaders were extremely knowledgeable and engaged all of the kids. He is already talking about next year. This trip is highly recommended for adventurous souls!
