We new Yosemite was going to be great but our experience was definitely above expectations. The park is amazing and the itinerary that YExplore proposed was... More

We were so glad that we booked a private hike with John of YExplore during our first time trip to Yosemite. We did a moderate hike to Lembert Dome and Dog Lake in the Tuolumne area. We were a group of four adults (50's) with limited hiking experience. It ended up being just right for us and was something we... More

The hike to Half Dome with Dan was more than I could have asked for. It was the Nat Geo channel live! Not only did we get misted by the falls, scale the Sub Dome and take in the amazing views, we crossed paths with a rattlesnake and a friendly bear on his way for a swim. Did I mention... More

Ryan was the guide for my son and I on a one day hike of Half Dome on Aug 9 - and we loved it! He set a good pace for us, kept his eye on the ever changing weather and provided a great deal of insight on the sights along the way which greatly added to the overall experience.... More

Ok I definitely missing something ... I have read all the great reviews and because of this booked a tour with YExplore. We did not have a great experience like all the other reviewers. I will start by saying I am 50 years old and out of shape and booked the "moderate" hike starting at Glacier Point to The Falls.... More

John recently guided my boyfriend and I on a full day hike to the summit of Clouds Rest in Yosemite. We had a fantastic time during our hike and I can't speak highly enough of our experience with YExplore, even from the initial booking! Catherine was very informative and flexible, and provided plenty of options during the busy July Season... More

Ryan and Katie led us on a journey to the top of Tuoloumne peak, and through the Yosemite back country. The scenery was beautiful, but more importantly, our group of 8 friends got to spend time together laughing and having fun on the trail without worrying that we would get lost or gobble up by a bear! Having Ryan and... More

I recently travelled to Yosemite for the first time with my husband and our three kids (ages 4, 7 and 10.) The area seemed so vast and I was unsure of where to begin in terms of planning our visit, so I contacted YExplore. I am so glad I did. Catherine took my phone call at 9:00 pm just a... More

Fantastic hike with knowledgeable and pleasant guide. We got an early start up to Yosemite Falls halfway vista point and afterward a nice stroll around the valley.

Did a hike with Jay from Glacier point along a panorama trail to a waterfall. Views were as brilliant as the guide himself. Very knowledgable and friendly. A must do especially if you aren't a hardcore hiker and need some guidance. Catherine was very helpful in setting up the hike through email. Highly recommended.
