Co-owner, Jolie Ginsburg, was working as a guide for the original owner and partnered with Brian Deninger to move the company forward. Both Brian and Jolie have extensive outdoor and guiding experience, including leading river kayaking, rock climbing, backpacking, hiking and sightseeing trips. They were involved in their community Biodiesel user group and hosted the San Francisco Biodiesel Coop at M06040 prior to owning the only retail Biodiesel fueling station in San Francisco, Dogpatch Biofuels.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
The Yosemite overnight tours (camping or hotel) are our most popular tours, for those that make the decision to give Yosemite more than one day of their holiday. Yosemite is such an amazing and vast destination that at least staying overnight improves the amount of time in the park as well as the feeling of satisfaction from guests that they have gotten a real experience.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
We get many great comments from customers, mostly due to our super guides. From one customer: The highlight of the tour was the fact that Mitch made sure we got to visit the lesser known and undiscovered places where fewer tourists were found. This is the way we prefer to travel, and Mitch was the perfect guide! We felt as if we were his personal guests. We'd love to tour with him again. Chris & Becky Young
