I did a private one-on-one hike with a guide to Half Dome. This was such an amazing experience! The guide was very knowledgeable regarding Yosemite, and I realized I wouldn't have completed it without the help of the guide. His expertise and calmness during the cables really enabled me to push through and complete this amazing hike!”

We were a group of 7 family members (ages 22-65 years old), for all of us was our first hiking/backpacking/camping experience. We all have such an amazing yet challenging experience, it was really worthy! Thank you so much to our guides Nicole and Jack for your cheers, your spirit, your cooking, your yoga time, your knowledge and for doing this family trip so great! We really enjoy it!!

I booked a guided hike for Clouds Rest as I was unsuccessful in my ballot for Half Dome. My friend was unable to make it so I decided to book a guided hike for myself. From beginning to end, Lasting Adventures was great. They replied to me quickly, and my guide was excellent! He offered me hiking poles in case I hadn't taken any and had plenty other essentials on hand.

If it’s your first time in Yosemite and/or you’re looking to see all of the iconic landmarks Yosemite Valley has to offer, look no further the Yosemite Valley Hiking Tour. Over the course of the day, your guide will take you on hikes to a variety of iconic Yosemite Valley destinations often including features like Vernal Fall, Nevada Fall, Mirror Lake, Happy Isles, Lower Yosemite Fall, Upper Yosemite Fall and/or Swinging Bridge as well as some of the more “hidden gems” of Yosemite like the little-known Sequoia trees growing in the valley or the secret Indian Caves. The hikes can be broken up with visits to the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and Museum, Ansel Adams Photo Gallery, Yosemite Art Center, replica Ahwahneechee Village, Pioneer Cemetery, or Old Chapel based on the interests of the small group. Prominent geological features like Half Dome, North Dome, Royal Arches and Glacier Point will be pointed out along the way. This is an easy to moderate hiking tour that is great for families and hikers of all skill levels. Since there is so much to see in Yosemite Valley, this trip can also be booked for two different days to make sure you see it all.
