3-Day Yosemite Camping Adventure from San Francisco

This trip is worth every penny! Our guide Justine was knowledgeable, funny and smart. Her passion for adventure and travel is very evident. Without revealing too much detail on where she took us you deserve the surprise she has in store, il give you a quick review to point out the pros and cons.

All three days were well planned. She had the best music playing in the bus, tracks handpicked for each part of the journey. Justine gave us a peek into the history of the park before we got there. She also had a bagful of facts that she kept throwing at us, making the entire adventure very interesting. While she didnt stick exactly to the plan on the website, she took us to the right places at the right time. She was in charge and we were very happy with that.

The food arrangements were great. There was a wide variety of produce, jams, spreads, breads.. enough for vegetarians and non vegetarians.

The campsite was neat, restrooms clean with hot water. Everyone pitches in to do everything which is a great experience.

Now, here are the cons. Some suggestions too.

Now this is a pro and a con. I have been on hiking tours before and we typically carry all our baggage which includes clothes for all days and everything else. These guys had a trailer where we could leave our bags and just hike with minimal things like camera and lunch. I had no idea about this and wished i had been informed earlier. I would have packed accordingly.

I checked the temp prediction at the park and within a few days, it had become a lot more cold. It would've been great if the tour guys could have told us in advance so we could've avoided buying things like fleece blankets, extra socks, shoes, gloves etc which i ended up buying despite having all of these back home.

Nothing more to say. Difficult to find fault with a guide and trip this great.

The trip is worth the money and make sure you ask for Justine if that is possible.

My son and I had wanted to visit Yosemite for some time. This looked like a great way to see the park, and it was. Plenty of guided tour, and time to explore on our own. Guide Alex was friendly, and knowledgable. Was a great 3 days, highly recommend!

Terrific three-day trip through Yosemite with a cool group. The tour covered some amazing scenery, opportunities for swimming, short walks/hikes and the camping ground had all of the basics plus a bar/restaurant next door. Our tour guide Leo was very knowledgeable and laid-back - it felt like he was showing us his backyard!! Fun times

Super awesome trip, Gina was an amazing guide and knew so much about the area. She got us to a lot of locations that were remote and did not have the crowds!

Don't expect to do a lot the first day, given the long drive, but the trip makes up for that. Camping is a lot of fun, you will meet people from all over the world. Yosemite tours on Saturday and Sunday are absolutely beautiful, especially Nevada and Vernal Falls and the Sequoia trees.

If traveling in the summer, bring a small fan for your tent.

Thanks again Gina for all you did!
