We booked a hike with John DeGrazio who was extremely knowledgeable about Yosemite and guided us along a fantastic 9+ mile journey through the El Capitan Meadow. By the end we felt very comfortable with the area and ready to explore several other hikes. I highly recommend John and would definitely book him again.

David was a great guide on the big Half Dome hike this past weekend. It was great not having to worry about the route (we started at 5am), the permits and also having a guide to help with the cable climb was a big help.

Along the way we found streams to cool off in and even saw a Bobcat on the hunt.

A memorable day for my family. Thank you!

We walked the Mist Trail to the top of Navarra Falls with our boys aged 14 and 17. The view was stunning and the cool water streams at the top made a perfect lunch break before we decended on the John Muir Trail. The only down side to this walk is that there are quite a lot of people on this trail.

We were happy to share some of the stunning views of Yosemite with you on our guided Yosemite hike. We understand that it is a little difficult because of so many road closures and construction projects, but we are happy the experience was still very positive.

It was a great experience. Totally worth it. We learn a lot about the history of the park and made the most of the time we spend there. I think the best time to apreciate the beauty of this park is around may but it still was a great experience. There was a fire very close but the company was very helpful and we didnt loose the opportunity to visit this amazing park.

I have been on several hikes throughout the years with yexplore, most recently an international trip to Nepal to hike Everest base camp. I cannot recommend this company enough, the guides are so knowledgeable and every experience has been so fun and memorable! My favorite Yosemite hike with them was half dome, the Mist Trail is incredible!

My husband and I did this hike with our 21 year old daughter and her boyfriend. David was so knowledgeable and pleasant and turned the hike into a memorable experience for each of us. He had a wonderful way of relating to each of us. I was by far the most novice hiker with a fear of heights, and David was very encouraging and took time to teach me a lot of basics about hiking.

The actual hike provided many scenic moments that were stunning. We had multiple views of the Vernal Falls at different heights including up to Clark’s Point as well as other waterfalls. We saw numerous climbers on Half Dome, and David passed around his binoculars for us to observe them. We had expected to feel exhausted at the end of the 6-7 miles, but we were exhilarated instead. Ask for David when booking this tour…you will not be disappointed!

Thank you YExplore! Our hike to Vernal Fall was stunning. It was just the right amount of challenge! And something we would not have done without your guide John! He gave us the confidence to know we could accomplish the trail! John was very knowledgeable, professional and fun! I highly recommend using YExplore and a guide! You will experience Yosemite in a way you couldn't imagine!

Had a wonderful experience with John our guide. He was patient & kind. We would have absolutely gotten lost had we tried this hike alone. He gave me some great tips on hiking techniques & safety. He also taught me a few things about taking better pictures. It was worth every penny (and more) . The views from Vernal & Nevada Fall were amazing. Again, we could not have done it without their guidance. We highly recommend this tour company.

We were lucky enough to be with just my husband and I with Lance as our guide. He was great! Very knowledgeable and friendly. Lance led us on a great, challenging hike. We went up the Mist Trail to the top of Vernal Falls then continued on to the top of Nevada Falls, returning on the John Muir trail. He didn’t rush us and let us take lots of pictures of the beautiful falls and amazing surrounding scenery.
