We booked a one day trip to Yosemite last year but it was cancelled due to bad weather. We are so glad we had the opportunity to try again and discovered this "incredible" tour on line. We were picked up at the designated spot on time by Eric our tour leader who made the introductions to our group of 11 and we were promptly on our way. After a brief stop for supplies and pick up a sandwich for lunch we had our first hike to the great trees of the Mariposa Grove. Eric cooked us a tasty BBQ dinner. After an incredible breakfast we had day two in the high country and spent the day hiking and swimming in lakes, the highlight of the day was the hike to watch an amazing sunset...thanks especially for this Eric. The final day was climbing to Vernal Falls and for those that were keen the opportunity to climb to the top of Nevada Falls. This did take longer than Eric had anticipated and not everyone made it back for the designated time but Eric still made time for us to have a much appreciated swim in the river before heading back to the city. Eric's knowledge of Yosemite and his desire for our group to get as much out of our visit as possible was fantastic. Without this tour I am sure my husband and I would not have pushed ourselves to do and see the things we did thanks Incredible Tours. In a nutshell - WOW!!
We had a lot of fun, met really nice people and our guide, Ross, is a really nice guy, always sharing his enthusiasm with us and taking care of the group.
It was an amazing trip! The guide is flexible to what kind of hikes you like to do. He took the group on a trip which made it possible to make everyone happy, both those who didn't want an advanced hike and those who wanted exactly that. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us stories and facts for every place we went. At night time we made gorgeous food and had a good time around the bonfire. It's a great way to get to know new people as well. I highly recommend it.
We had just the best time. The variety of the excursions we went on was fantastic with some great trips off the beaten track as well as seeing all the spectacular features in the valley... Assume time..
Very nice trip, good and efficiently organized. Probably the best nature I will ever experience
The Guide (Ross) was great. He explained well, was fun and took very good care of us as a group.
perfect! nice trip, awesome landscape, funny people, awesome tour guide! go for it!
Great trip - saw the majority of the main park sights and had enough time to appreciate them rather than a whistlestop tour. Great guide (Karen). She was very knowledgeable, good fun, gave us lots of options of things to do and made sure as much as we could during our trip without making it too hectic. Good food and fun camping.
This trip HIGHLY depends on who you get as your tour guide, but for us it was amazing. We had Mitch for our guide and Justin was training with him, so we were fortunate enough to have two amazing guides on our trip. If you can request either of these two, I promise you will have an amazing time.
Really enjoyed the camping experience, the company was entertaining. Our guide was very helpful and the food was great.
The three day Yosemite Camping Adventure was amazing. It is a small scale organization, they surely know the good places in the park and the guides were very nice. I can recommend this trip to everyone!
The Yosemite 3 Day camping trip was an amazing trip, I just wish I had of gone for longer. The tour took in all the sites and even gave you the opportunity to explore on your own. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly making the trip all the more enjoyable. Would and have recommended this trip to everyone!
Great time! Tim knew his way around Yosemite and gave us the full hiking tour. Food was good, people were nice. We could't ask for more.
Fantastic 3 day camping trip.
Great guide, comfortable camping equiptment, great fun with fellow guests and Yosemite is just stunning!
Just be aware of the 15-20% driver tip at the end although I respect this is USA culture and our guide thoroughly deserved it.
Had a great time.Fantastic views 10,000 ft up on our all day hike.Valley was a disappointment as extremely crowded with large campsites. Our campsite at Cedar Lodge was much nicer.
Beautiful place and 3 days definitely the minimum you should spend there.
Fabulous trip, would recommend it to anyone. We travelled as a family of 3, all others were single backpackers, but it was fine. A few of the activities were better for the singles and mealtimes were pretty eratic, but that was a small price to pay for such a cool trip. Best moment...messing around on a log in the lake. Worst moment... trying to sleep in a really hot tent!
My experience with Incredible Adventures 3-day camping Adventure was very enjoyable. Our guide was very familiar with the national park and took us to some very picturesque places for hiking, swimming and sight seeing.
The only downside to this experience was the campsite. It was very dusty and dirty.
Hope this helps!
Highly recommended. The walks up the hill and the professional guides make the whole trip extremely fun.
I wanted a chance to spend some time at Yosemite and this fitted the bill.
Yosemite was great... Our guide Sonia was great. The only little disappointment for me was because out of those 3 days, we only spent in time in the Yosemite National Park for 4 hours... Too many to explore there and all was very exciting. Too much time spent in driving from one spot to another.
Great way to see Yosemite in short time frame + budget. If you get a good tour leader the trip would be great - unfortunately ours was simply ok and certainly didn't give us any local knowledge either on the trip up or in the Park.
I was under the impression that we would be camping inside the park. The campsite was very dirty and was more like a rest area on the side of the road. We ate dinner at midnight and 11pm at night and had to wake up our guide in the morning. We did not get on the road to start our day until 11am or noon. The guide kept asking us what we wanted to do and no one in the group had been to Yosemite before so we were all slightly confused. One person was suffering from a stomach virus and the guide was not prepared to deal with it. We spent a lot of time in the parking lot trying to comfort them instead of taking them to a medial clinic. Yosemite is a must-see but I think the two-day is sufficient assuming you have a group that is prepared, organized and everyone is well.
