We booked with YFA because we only had 1 day in the park and wanted to make the most of it. Kevin did a great job with what he had to work with--which was 3 somewhat out of shape people and a park filled with smoke. Unfortunately we did not get to experience the 'big' views that the park is known for as the Ferguson fire was causing smokey conditions. We did get in some nice hikes and a great lunch on a rocky outcrop, Hetch Hetchy was neat--we enjoyed the whole thing and found ourselves wishing we had Keven with us as we toured Sequoia too.

Jesus, our guide was brilliant, from the moment he picked us up to the time we were dropped back at the front door of our apartment. We loved the picnic spot lunch and visiting a number of popular areas, Jesus knew the routes to take us away from the crowds. The whole day was fantastic and we would highly recommend Yosemite Family Adventures, we will be back. Hopefully everyone stays safe with the current fires.

We took this tour on two consecutive days. Unfortunately we were affected by the Ferguson fire to a small extent as there was smoke in the entire park. We still were able to get out both days and see everything of interest. Our guide was Jesus and he was incredible. He was fun, flexible and he loves people as much as the wilderness. He picked us up each morning promptly at our Rush Creek Lodge at 8am and had us back at 5pm. He brought our pre-ordered lunches and plenty of water. He took us to all the popular places but managed to get us up close and personal without getting stuck in the crowd. I think the ordering of lunch ahead of time is brilliant as is the filling out of waivers so the day is not wasted on any logistics. The suburbans we rode in were very clean and nice. I can’t say enough good things about this family owned company. I highly recommend it to families who want a personal way to see the park. It’s well worth the money. We hiked, we swam, we ate really good lunches by quiet and peaceful places, and we were very well taken care of.

As pretty keen walkers and semi-experienced hikers we were not sure whether we would get much out of our 2 days hiking but we needn't had worried - getting to Yosemite from the UK is quite a trek in itself and our guide helped extract so much more from the 2 hikes than if we had walked ourselves - we stayed away from the "July crowds" and had a fantastic time ...

We weren't really sure what all we wanted to do to get the best of Yosemite in 5 days. David put together the full agenda for us and we were just blown away with how much we did! Kevin, our guide, just became part of the family in short order. He knew the area very well and was just willing to adjust to whatever we felt like doing at whatever pace we wanted to do it. YFA is the way to see Yosemite!
