John Kleinfelter provided a customized tour for our two couples (ages 65-70) of the Valley major points of interest. His knowledge of the geology and history of the park was outstanding as was his presentation. John provided transportation for our party of four which was a big plus. We give John a five star rating as a guide service.

I can't say enough about John. He was wonderful from start to finish. He setup the perfect two day Yosemite tour for my family. We spent the first day in Yosemite Valley and the second in the Tuolumne Meadows & Tioga Pass area. Don't try to do this yourself! It is worth every penny to have John take you around and show you things you would never see on your own. I hired John to be our guide and honestly feel like I left with a new friend.

We worked with Rob who is one of John's guides for a 2 day guided tour of Yosemite. We had a great time, and really appreciated Rob's deep understanding of the park, and all of the special areas that we wouldn't have found on our own. He was kind, patient, easy going, and very flexible. We had 2 families of 5 including 6 children, and Rob handled us perfectly. He catered to each person and tailored the tour to make everyone in the group happy. He also has a great background in biology and knows a ton about the various plants, trees, and wildlife which was a nice bonus! We learned a ton and really felt like this was a great experience. Thanks to John to hooking us up with Rob!

We are a family of four who were holidaying in California and making our first trip to Yosemite. We had only 2 full days in the National park and wanted to make the most of the time there and so hired John's guiding services. We were not to be disappointed. John picked us up at 0830 and finally dropped us off at 1830 after a full day of learning, activity, discovery and enchantment. John knew how to avoid crowds, where the best locations for pictures were, advice for hikes that would suit our family's abilities and his knowledge, story-telling and passion for Yosemite added hugely to our time spent there. I'd strongly recommend his services.

John organized the most amazing day in Yosemite for us with his guide Rob. With only one day in our travel schedule for Yosemite we needed someone to help us get the very best out of the day, and Rob did this brilliantly. Over 10 hours we saw all the highlights of Yosemite - Bridal Veil Falls, Tunnel View, Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Glacier Point and Sentinel Point, and although this is such a popular tourist spot Rob guided us carefully to quiet spots where Yosemite felt like our own. He was great company, really fun and informative, we learned so much about the natural and human history of the area and saw the most awe inspiring views. We would never have experienced or enjoyed so much without him. We would highly recommend John's guide service - he was extremely helpful over email in explaining the tour - what to expect, what to bring, where to meet Rob, and organizing payment (it was worth every penny!), and we would jump at the chance to go again. We haven't stopped talking about our Yosemite day - it is one of the best travel experiences we have ever had, just wish we had been able to stay longer. Next time we'll book in for a few days!
