Yosemite Family Adventures - Where Yosemite Adventure Begins!
Yosemite National Park is renowned for its sightseeing possibilities. In one day, visitors can see the largest monolith of granite in the world, the tallest waterfall in North America and they can rest in the shadows of 2000 year old Giant Sequoias. Visit our Sightseeing page to learn more about our private Yosemite sightseeing tours and let our naturalist guides get you up close and personal with the wonders of Yosemite.
Home to more than 800 miles of trials and three mountain peaks over 13,000 feet, Yosemite is a wonderful place to strap on your hiking boots and go hiking in the backcountry. If you're not a big hiker but you love the outdoors, you can join our Yosemite hiking guides as they take you on a few relaxing hikes during your tour. We also offer explorer and summit hikes for all hikers that are interested in challenging adventures.
Fly fishing in Yosemite is a wonderful way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Our professional fly fishing guides are great at teaching complete beginners how to fly fish in a short amount of time and expert anglers will find that our local guides are just what they need to obtain the upper hand on catching wild, native trout in Yosemite. This is a great adventure for singles, families & larger groups.
Interactive sightseeing and hiking tours at their finest. Our artistic tours are a unique way of taking home more than just road side photos and shop souvenirs from your visit to Yosemite. Come out and paint your own landscape, sketch a beautiful California Poppy with chalk or capture a small flowing creek in motion with your camera. The options are endless when you reserve one of our private artistic tours.
Gold! Gold! Gold from them there hills! Private gold panning adventures on some of the same creeks and rivers that were worked by the gold miners during the California Gold Rush. Spend part of your day just outside the border of Yosemite learning about gold mining, where gold comes from, how to use a gold pan and maybe even put a few gold flakes in your pocket at the end of your own gold rush adventure.
The night sky over Yosemite provides ample opportunity for visitors to experience stars like never before.

"Best day ever! Worth every cent!, We felt we did more in a day in Yosemite with YFA than we would have done ourselves in 3 days. Can't recommend highly enough" - Clare N (via Tripadvisor)

"We have to thank David for giving us the best experience possible in Yosemite! Having picked us up, we immediately felt at home with him. Fly fishing was first on the agenda, but we were given options as to where we wanted to go. And that was pretty much the way of the day. Our son wanted to get close to the waterfall - so that's what he did with David! As well as a bit of caving and swimming! We did and saw so much, without being rushed. Views from Taft Point were awe inspiring, if not a little scary! On the return, we were lucky to see the most fantastic sunset. It doesn't feel like a tour so much as a great day out with an expert friend.. Fantastic value- do it if you can."
