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!

This was one of the best experiences that I had.Ryan our tour guide was very informative and also chose the hikes according to the age mix of the group .Yosemite is not only an one day visit at least do the three day visit
I don't usually like tours but this one was a totally amazing experience!
Amazing tour - great group size and great group leader. Couldn't recommend it more to anyone who wants to get the best out of a trip to Yosemite.
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
A fantastic tour that was very well organized and catered to the group's needs. I highly recommend anyone thinking of visiting Yosmite to go on this tour, you get to experience some amazing scenery, hike and camp in beautiful surroundings yet with all comforts provided, with an amazing tour guide thanks Anne!.
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!
I recently did the 3 day tour and it was great, our tour guide Vincent was very knowledgeable and helpful, he tried to tailor our trip as much as he could depending on what we wanted to see, he suggested the best places and explained everything, The camping area was very clean, had bathrooms and showers, the food was good and they had tons of it. I'm not too much into camping but they do all the hard work for you so they made it seem very easy. He also showed us the places you go on the 1 day trip and I think if you want to have a full experience is better to do the 2 or 3 day, you see a lot more and is worth it.
The tour was well balanced with a mix of sightseeing, hiking, swimming in rivers and lakes, and socializing. Some care had been taken to find hikes that suited a range of abilities, so less able walkers could turn back if they needed to without missing out. Our guide was knowledgable about the area.
Who ever is looking at this trip, instantly book it. You will not regret it. The views and experience in Yosemite is out of this world. Really big shout out to our tour guide and #39; Tim and #39;. One of the nicest person I have met and extremely knowledgable. The fact he has a passion for Yosemite really helped
Recently done this tour at the end of sept,superb and worth every penny,excellent guides who know there stuff,meeting new people from around the world,seeing the most incredible sights,10/10
A well organised and extremely enjoyable three days in Yosemite. Our guide Leo shared huge amounts of information with us, and was full of lots of local stories. Camping was great fun - as was swimming in the river. This was a brilliant way to see Yosemite - I only wish we could have had a longer trip as there is just so much to see and experience.
Excellent 5 Star Trip. Four of us were part of of a group of 13 plus Tim driver, expert and guide, many nationalities and ages. Tim was excellent and made sure everyone felt comfortable and enjoyed the trip. He was very knowledgeable about Yosemite and his enthusiasm for the park was felt by all. The views are stunning, amazing and more. The hikes were tailored to met everyones ability and certain well worth doing. The camp site had all you needed including swimming pool and hot tub :- It was good fun to cook, eat together around the camp fire. Tim could not have anything more to make this trip anymore enjoyable Thank you Tim :-
The tour was amazing from start to finish!! Our tour leader Leo was incredible and really brought the group together and made our time at Yosemite as amazing as he could!! One of the highlights of all my travels!! Thank you Leo!!!
It was a very picturesque, inspiring and diverse trip. Our guide Leo showed us very interesting routes corresponding to our physical form and told many stories about Yosemite and San Francisco. He also tough us how to cook good Mexican food. This trip was a great fun!
The best time I had in the US was on this trip!
Shane was such a great tour leader and we had really good group of people 14 in total ranging in ages from early 20's to early 30's and from many different countries.
I'm from Australia and was traveling by myself for a few days before I had to attend a conference in LA. I wanted to see more of the area outside of the cities so this tour seemed perfect for my schedule. So glad I went on it as Yosemite is simple breathtaking and I had such a fun time.
I was there in mid-June which gave us very nice weather - pretty moderate temperatures and no rain. The camping facilities were more than adequate and the food was great although I've learnt I'm not a huge fan of smores.
The hikes Shane took us on were amazing - especially our main one which was to a beautiful lake. So glad I jumped in even though the water was freezing - great memories! Shane's knowledge of the area made the trip fascinating as well and his choice in music on our times on the bus couldn't be beat!
If you are short on time and want to see the area, this is the trip for you! However if you do have more time to spend then you'll want to stay as long as possible as there is just so much to see!
10/10 would do again!
Great experience and prefect tour routine led by our guide Leo! Friendly international group with a lot of fun together. Really enjoyed and appreciated this tour. Will stay in memory for sure.
I really enjoyed this trip. I was one of 4 solo travelers in the group. The group was very international, its size was just right and the program for the 3 days was great. I was a little nervous because I have little hiking experience or camping experience, but I already recommended this tour to my friends and colleagues.
Fantastic way to experience Yosemite although I probably could have done with one or two more days more now that I know how much I enjoyed it there!. Our guide Meaghan was very informative, friendly and a pleasure to chill with around the campfire at night.
My friend and I could not have asked for a better experience travelling around Yosemite. Our tour guide Marie was extremely knowledgable about the park and the surrounding area and you could tell she genuinely has a passion for this kind of work. She tailored the trip for our camping group and ensured we got as much as possible from the experience as possible. Thanks to her we even saw a baby Black Bear. Looking back I know we would not have been able to see as much or enjoyed it as much had we driven around the park for ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour for all ages and would like to say a big thank you to Marie. From Team England!
This was a very good trip. Well organiced. Nice guide. Good hikings.
