Great tour! Trevor, our guide, was very experienced and helped us navigate some challenging terrain with our two children. The length of the tour and the chosen trails were perfect. I highly recommend!

Our guide Jay was ready and waiting for us as we arrived early for our first Yosemite hike. Our beginners hike was exactly that. Jay led the hike keeping my 6-year-old daughters interests and ability foremost, which is exactly what I wanted. Jay was knowledgeable and experienced, as well as very friendly. He was even prepared with antiseptic and Band-Aid to fix a small scrape when my daughter slipped. The map and driving directions prepared by Catherine were precise and absolutely perfect. We were first-time visitors to Yosemite but left with so much thanks to Jay, John and Catherine of Yexplore. I would recommend this hike to anyone!

Took my 6-year-old daughter on two Yosemite hikes, both guides were absolutely great and tailored the experience to her interests and ability. The scenery was spectacular and the guides shared a lot of interesting information about things we would never have known without their help along the way. We saw sequoias and other interesting flora as well as encountering a few deer, squirrels, chipmunks and a frog and marmot along the way. We were completely satisfied with the experience and would recommend Jay and John of Yexplore as guides to anyone. Can't wait to book another hiking trip with Yexplore!!!

Tim was a terrific guide and the hike to Sentinel Dome and beyond was perfect for what we were looking for. A great start to our 3 days in Yosemite.

Matteo was absolutely awesome.

Lots of fun and interesting info.

He was conscious of our pace and allowed us plenty of time to explore and recharge.

The views were breath taking, his demeanor was very approachable. He tailored his presentation to our interests.

Nothing but praise for Matteo.
