The other day I was hiking along the North Rim of Yosemite Valley when an apparition appeared. In prior revenant encounters, the elusive spirit always avoided contact, but this one was different indeed. As I stood on the summit of El Capitan on a rain…

Great personalized hike. Professionally photos taken. Wonderful experience that would recommend to anyone. We got up close with some deer and even had a coyote run past us. How cool!

Mindy from YExplore was an exceptional guide for our group. 3 Adults and 3 teenagers. She talked about Yosemite history, formation and the hikes we were going on. She was very positive and it made for a great experience for us all. I would definitely recommend YExplore as they were responsive and communication was great.

Cannot say enough good things about yExplore. This was our second hike with them, and John guided us expertly to the summit of Half Dome and back down safely. The experience was amazing, spectacular, just too wonderful for words. John knows the trails and peaks of Yosemite inside and out, down to the history, geology, and wildflowers -- he is a fabulous guide and generously shares his love and respect for nature to make any trip with him special.

Great experience I was able to learn a lot from +Jesse Summers about the methods of getting great shots of the milky way and landscape photos during the day. YExplore took great care of me and my fellow photographers during the workshop. Thanks YExplore.

My fiancé and I went up half dome with John and Tim. I know we wouldn't have made it without them. Having them break up the trip into stages and helping us up the cables. Priceless. Thank you so much for a great adventure, peaches, and the view of a lifetime. Catherine as well was great getting us all the info and getting set up.

YExplore was great to work with. Catherine was always available to answer my questions on arranging the trip. Erik, our guide was very knowledgeable and capable. He kept us on track, encouraged us, made sure we stayed hydrated and energized. He was very patient with (me especially) traversing the more difficult areas. I would recommend this company and our guide to anyone wishing to take this hike.

2-day backpacking trip to Half-Dome for a bunch of fit, non-backpacking moms. Yexplore did an awesome job! Provided everything we needed. Hardest, scariest, coolest thing ever! Could not have done it on our own. Thank you YExplore!

John took us on a really enjoyable 5-hour hike to Inspiration Point in early January. John is extremely knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects (geology, trees, animals, history, etc.) and will happily answer any questions you have. The pace of the hike was perfect and the views among the best I have seen anywhere in the world. Very competitively priced and worth every penny. Thanks a million! P.s. I know John also leads trips on more technical/demanding routes, so also a good option for more the experienced.
