* A traveler said: "Went on a solo 2 Night 3 Day Yosemite camping trip with incredible adventures - Was wondering if it will be too hard but was really happy and enjoyed a lot. Tour guide Lisa was really kind and one of the best people I have ever met. Food was good, all the other people that came along in the trip were also great. It was a nice diverse crowd from different countries and different backgrounds. Lisa was great at being inclusive of everyone on the trip. She showed us many spots of Yosemite which I wouldn't have seen if I just drove there by myself, she also helped us during hikes if we needed extra water or electrolytes or just a friend to push us through the last mile. Our second day was packed with hikes and many points. I think the best part was star gazing where we parked our van at a vista point and just laid down there to see the stars and the milky way at night after a tiring day of hiking. The third day was a self explore day where we were guided for what we can do and what is easy/hard and how to get there and around. I think it was a great experience and will highly recommend it too."
