We were greeted at half-dome village by our guide, Otto, and as we were the only 2 Otto was hiking with we... More

Will, my guide, was very knowledgeable and very accommodating. He pointed out all the different types of trees and plant life. My favorite part was the butterscotch caramel smell coming out of the tree bark. He gave me plenty of time to take pictures and to enjoy the atmosphere. Also, we took the hard way back from Dewey Point since... More

We had a great time with our guide Will snowshoeing through and sequoias and up to Dewey's Point! He was very knowledgeable and friendly (even came out to guide us on his birthday!) We will definitely be using LA again on our next trip to Yosemite.

Friendly hike with Will, feeling between friends hiking and exchanging on the forest life ... Learn a Lot this day! much appreciated. I will recommend without hesitation. Perhaps not as long as I was guessing ... I had a full day trip... and it was a pleasant 2h hike ( Far better for me :-) ).

I did day tour with one of the guides in at the end of August 2017. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgable and always keeping out for our safety. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if this is your first time.

We only had a single day to see Yosemite and decided to book a tour with lasting adventures. Emilia was a fantastic guide with great knowledge of the park's history and a good feeling for what we wanted to see. She introduced us to some hidden gems of Yosemite and showed us more than we could have expected to see... More
