I’m very thankful I decided to book the guided half dome hike for me and my boyfriend. We are not experienced hikers. We were lucky to have John as our tour guide. We also had two other gentlemen join us for the adventure. It was nice to have a small group. John has a ton of experience and knowledge to share. To be honest, I wasn’t convinced we would be able to complete the cables. My boyfriend has a pretty good fear of heights. And I’ve read how scary the cables can be. But we did conquer them! 😁 I know, for 100% fact, we would not have been successful without John’s guidance. He, quite remarkable, calmed my boyfriend. I’ve never been able to calm him. I need John’s skills. John managed to successfully get all of us up the cables, an hour to enjoy the summit, and back to our cars well before sunset. It was a great day. Thanks! I appreciate y’all so much.

Our tour guide Chris made our experience unforgettable. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and it’s history and was excited to share that information with us. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a once in a life time experience.

We had a GREAT experience with YExplore. This company really cares about its customers and Yosemite. At all points we felt valued and welcome. They really went out of their way to make sure a guide was available for us when we could hike, and that we had a great guide. Our guide Emily was AWESOME--experienced, calm, patient, fun, interactive, interesting and informative. We were not experienced hikers, but she gave us confidence to complete a challenging hike. I guess we could have done the hike on our own, but having Emily really gave us confidence on our 1st day in the park and helped us to enjoy our hike even more. It was a perfect way to start our time in the park. I could not recommend YExplore (or Emily!) more highly.
