    Beautiful roadtrip

    The Yosemite & Tahoe mini trip is the perfect chance to get out of the city and enjoy a few days camping in bear country! We had a great, small group of trekkers and a lovely tour leader. It would have been nice to stay an extra day in eith...er Tahoe or Yosemite as you only get a few hours in each place but its great to experience both of these places with a leader if you are pushed for time in the area!

    Amazing experience

    Despite the bush fire, we had a really good time, the food was really healthy and the camp site at Lake Tahoe was beautiful. Yosemite is definitely a highlight for those who like to do a bit of hiking, or if you just want to get the shuttle... round the park. No bears seen though!! I recommend the sunset catermaran on the Lake Tahoe for sure. Read full review
