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;.

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.
Amazing experience! Yosemite was just gorgeous! We were able to go on multiple hikes, explore Yosemite Valley, explore Yosemite high country, and see the breathtaking rock formations and giant sequoia trees! Meghan was very professional, responsible, and knowledgeable. Also, it was great to meet people from all different countries and bond with them over the 3 day trip. Definitely book this trip...it gives you a newfound or renewed appreciation for the outdoors and the majesties of Yosemite.
We had a great time! Our tour guide, Chris, was very knowledgable about the area and super chill. He took us to popular sites as well as hidden gems. As a novice camper without equipment, this was the perfect trip. I felt I had everything I needed, except for time to explore everything in Yosemite!
Yes it was so amazing and thanks Mary the best guide that I ever seen before
Was an awesome trip. We booked last minute and was more than what we expected. Chris the tour guide was really good and was full of knowledge. Was definitely one of the highlights of my usa trip!
Our guide Chris was great!
We saw a bear thanks to him.
Our group was international and very easygoing. I had an awesome time :-)
What a trip! I usually prefer to go it alone and find my way around, but seeing as I was only in the area for a few days, I (hesitantly) decided to book onto this tour and hope that I might find a friendly group and a good tour guide - we,, I couldn't have wished for more! The group was a great mix of people from all walks and countries, and the guide was a real expert in his field. I could pick his brains about many a subject and he would always provide a knowledgable and experienced answer, or provide the resources for us to able to find out in way of books and field guides. The guide really enhanced the trip for the whole group, and we were all delighted with his friendly manner, obliging attitude, and expert knowledge. A better guide I could not imagine! And, of course, the views and hikes were second to nothing I've ever experienced! The pictures speak for themselves...!
Firstly or tour guide Tim was brilliant. He was really informative about the whole trip and took us to some amazing places in the park. The group we had were a really good mix and we really enjoyed camping with everyone. Camp fires with s'mores anybody? Thank you for an amazing time!
I had such a good time. Food wasn't great but my guide, Shamus, was very good.
I took this tour just as the US Government Closure was causing havoc with people going into National Parks, so officially, I didn't get to see Yosemite. However, our guide Seamus, found us some alternative sites outside of the Yosemite border and I can honestly say that we didn't miss put on a thing - in fact I think we got more out of this trip! Seamus made the trip so special for us and we saw some amazing sites and did some great hikes. And, he's a great camp cook. Highly recommend this trip, this company and our guide.
This camping experience exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Seamus, was extremely knowledgable about the area with relevant and interesting information. We hicked every day and the degree of dificulty was adaptable to all ages. This is the kind of experience that you need to live and no photograph captures the extent of the beauty that Yosemity holds. Group size was adequate and food good conmesurate with a camping trip.
Even though we live nearby (south bay) we decided to spring for the tour, mainly to have a guide. Boy are we ever glad we did! Our guide was just fantastic, and we were extremely happy with several fantastic hikes away from the crowds. We couldn't recommend this tour more highly.
