This was an incredible experience. Lasting Adventures was extremely helpful in every aspect of this trip. The Executive Director of the company, Scott Gehrman, called or emailed himself to answer all my questions. One of my children is vegan and they were easily able to accommodate her diet. Our guide for this trip, John, was easy going and very knowledgeable of the area. This trip was fantastic and Lasting Adventures was perfect for us. I would book with them again with complete confidence of a great trip.

Lasting Adventures was amazing to deal with from the first inquiry. They helped us decide what route would be best for us and were flexible with dates. Our guide was helpful, fun, and informative and we thoroughly enjoyed our backpacking hike with him. The scenery and views we experienced will be implanted on our minds forever and we couldn't think of a better way to experience Yosemite! We were also pleasantly surprised at how 'gourmet' the food was for a backpacking hike.
If you are looking for a guided trip through the park - this is a great company to go with!!!

Our family (my wife and I and two daughters in their early twenties) went on a custom 5-day/4-night Yosemite camping trip organized by Lasting Adventures. Our two guides, Chrissy and Lydia, were fantastic. Although one of my daughters is a fairly experienced backpacker, the rest of us had little to no experience and were a little nervous about our ability to survive, let alone thrive. But Chrissy and Lydia found the perfect balance between making the trip challenging and keeping it fun. The highlight of our trip was climbing Mt. Hoffman (10800 feet) from May Lake (9300 feet), something my wife and I are still amazed we actually pulled off. Lasting Adventures also provided sleeping bags, tents, and other gear, and everything was first rate. This was a great way to experience Yosemite and all of us enthusiastically recommend Lasting Adventures.

The guides were so awesome, that it convinced me to wish to become a Junior Leader. It was an experience that I will never forget. I'm definitely doing it again, and for longer next time. Thank you so much for such an unforgettable experience!
