Just had a six hour hike around Yosemite Valley with John. I had the greatest time. John was knowledgeable about the history, wildlife and ecology of the valley. It was well worth the time. Best of all John enjoys what he does and it shows. He is an enthusiastic guide who knows the valley very well. We went off the... More

Went on 4 hour photography guided workshop with Robb recently.It was such a wonderful experience to have such a knowledgeable photographer share his skills so well that I felt it cleared up many technical skills in photography that I've wanted addressed. He was not only attentive,knowledgeable, and fun but new great places to shoot. I was enjoying myself so much... More

Hiked with Matteo up Mount Conness. Matteo was very personable and a lot of fun. Camped out, ate great food (some of it was caught from Young Lakes) and generally had a great time. Highly recommended.

We used YExplore for an overnight family backpack trip to Young Lakes in late August 2013. My wife and I took our 10 year old daughter and 12 year old son. We felt it was important to get off the beaten path, away from the crowds, pavement and development of Yosemite Valley, to make sure our kids had a meaningful... More

Super easy to set up and 100% worth the cost. Robb was an exceptional guide with expertise about the park and photography. Took us to stunning views and offered just the right amount of guidance and teaching. Was able to incorporate his lessons throughout the rest of our trip. Great recommendations for additional hikes. Two very big thumbs up!

We had two daily hikes with YExplore this year and have to say that they exceeded all our expectations. Very professional and courteous, Catherine answered all our questions about the park and its surrounding areas, recommended several hikes based on our experience and preferences. John was the best guide we have ever encountered. Very knowledgeable, patient, polite and simply a... More

12 non-hikers from Malaysia who've never visited Yosemite before. Add two excellent guides - Pete Devine and Matteo Fiori. The result? A fun, very informative and definitely memorable Gentle Yosemite Hike through the Valley from Lower Yosemite Falls up to Mirror Lake and back. My kids still talk about the great time they had with Pete and Matteo. We all... More

Everything went perfect form the very beginning. I was a little nervous because I had never hike before, but Catherine was extremely patient answering every question I had. The hike itself was beautiful and very pleasant. John was very knowledgeable and a very kind. Had an awesome time overall!
