About
This is the ultimate Yosemite sightseeing experience and the best way to see Yosemite in just one day. We'll start off exploring a grove of Giant Sequoias, the largest living tree species on earth, on a 2 mile round trip hike, before heading out to Glacier Point.  Once at Glacier Point we'll enjoy birds-eye views of Yosemite's most iconic landmarks like Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and El Capitan as well as Vernal and Nevada Falls! We'll end the day with even more hiking, sightseeing and maybe even a little swimming in the famed Yosemite Valley where we'll see the iconic views from Tunnel View and Bridalveil Falls!

AMAZING. My husband and I chose Yosemite for our honeymoon trip and Echo made sure we left with the most incredible memories. Keep in mind that there's activities that the weather might prevent you from doing (some locations may be closed). However, if you choose Echo, rest assured that they will do everything in their power to guarantee an authentic and beautiful experience in Yosemite. Bryan was our guide (lucky us!). He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Even though some locations were closed, he took us to other breathtaking routes. Veronica and Elizabeth (in charge of operations) also did everything to accommodate us in a better schedule despite the weather conditions. We plan on coming back and will definitely go with Echo again!

I cannot say enough about this tour, everything from the booking to the tour and post tour was top rate. This was my first time to Yosemite and I wanted to take a tour but I didn't want to spend time getting on and off a bus or waiting for other people who were late getting back tot he van but I also didn't want to worry about the pandemic.

I have travelled a lot and this is hands down the best tour I have ever taken and I cannot say enough about the tour guide. My guide was very knowledgeable about the park and about conservation.

I have been home for just a day and I am already looking at their website to plan another tour!

Fantastic full-day hike with Jamie!

Easy/moderate 4-5 hours in which we hit a bunch of spectacular viewpoints -- the "greatest hits" of the park: Yosemite Falls, Nevada Falls, El Cap, Roosevelt, Taft, Half Dome. We are a fairly fit family of 5, and really enjoyed this long-ish hike WITHOUT the big trudge up from the valley.

Ended the day with a quick dip in the river right in front of El Cap... with a perfect view of the Free Solo route.

Jamie is fun, informative, a perfect guide. Easy to talk to, very knowledgeable about, well, everything.

We had decided to go to Yosemite before we really planned it out. It's overwhelming trying to figure out where to go, how to avoid the crowds, see the stuff we wanted to see. This day was exactly what we needed -- and Jamie gave us good advice for where else to go on other days.

Highly recommend! Thank You Jamie!

Echo Adventures met all of our expectations for exploring Yosemite. We had Jamie as our guide, and he was amazing to get along with and very knowledgeable of the area and Yosemite. He pivoted his plans based on our needs and went above and beyond to understand our family's interests and tailored our explorations to fit. Jamie was also amazing with our 11-year son and took the extra time to answer his questions, hiked at his (our) pace, and always ensured we took time to stop and take in everything around us.

I highly recommend Echo Adventures if you want to capture the true sites of Yosemite, without the hassle of trying to self-plan everything.

A friend of mine wanted to visit Yosemite for his birthday. We had a crazy series of events that led us to a fantastic guided tour with Lori. She was a highly skilled ranger who was immense fun to learn from and explore the park with. She created trails and really knew her history about the park plus facts about the flora and fauna that I never would have picked up on had we just gone solo. This was a fantastic day. I'm glad that we were able to interact with Echo.

Our Yosemite experience was well beyond what we expected! Our tour guide, Bryant really knew his stuff and filled the day with not only fun adventures, but super interesting park history everywhere we went. I was excited to find Echo Adventure Cooperative because I am a full time wheelchair user and Yosemite is certainly not a place where you would imagine finding accessibility on any level, yet they offer accessible park tours. These guys ROCK because I got to see and experience everything! Bryant obviously loves Yosemite and is quite thrilled to share it's beauty and history with his tours. His knowledge paid off in a huge way for me, because he found a way to get my wheelchair to all the spectacular sights in the park. It was such an amazing day, and I just can close my eyes and be there again on the edge of the walkway, gazing at the glory of Half Dome, seeing my daughter standing next to a giant sequoia, or feeling the cool waters of the Merced on my feet. Thank you, Echo and Bryant for making it possible and believing in the power of possibility.

We did two tours with Kevin, a sightseeing and a hike and they were both incredible. Kevin was truly amazing! His knowledge about the park, the animals, the plants and the history was unbelievable! Can’t say enough good things about our trips with Kevin- made our vacation unforgettable!

We had an amazing day with Jaime from Echo! He gave us so much useful information about Yosemite, the history, legends and stories, and we had a great time exploring the Valley. I would highly recommend using this outfitter for your next trip to Yosemite.

Scenario: first time Yosemite somewhat frequent hiker with limited time & low tolerance for big crowds
Problem Solved: Jamie Plouffe to the rescue! After his interview, Jamie quickly planned a day keeping all of the above in mind. We hiked to Sentinel Cove & on Old Stagecoach Road, waded in the Merced River, visited Yosemite Falls, El Capitan Meadow, Tunnel View, Yosemite Chapel, Sentinel Meadow, Bridalveil Falls, Yosemite Valley Lodge, & other sites that I would not have considered alone as he provided great history facts & stories about Yosemite throughout the day. Jamie packed the day with awesome activities based on an interview that only took moments.
Grade: A+ for flexibility, Yosemite knowledge, communication skills, patience, and support

Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point & Giant Sequoias Sightseeing Hike and Tour

Can’t say enough good things about this experience. We had limited time in the park, but didn’t want to miss it on our CA trip. We wanted to spend the time we had enjoying the park, not figuring out the logistics and we found Echo. Echo worked with us to discover what we wanted to get out of the tour and delivered exactly that. Lori, our guide was fantastic, knowledgeable and personable. She let us set the pace, but also managed to keep us on track so we missed nothing. Lori truly helped us go beyond just seeing the park to truly appreciating and engaging with the park.
