Our day hikes, backpack trips, sightseeing tours, and camping trips are designed to be extraordinary outings in any part of Yosemite - the "must - see" locations, the spectacular high alpine country, or the remote wilderness areas of the nearby Sierra Nevada.
Specializing in smaller-sized groups, couples, families, and special occasion trips, we concentrate on quality over quantity. On every private* trip and tour we guide, our goal is to deliver a special experience that is both unique and personal.
*All of our trips are private, provided only for those requesting each trip. We never pack people together or mix in other guests on any of our trips.
