Life changing experience. I recommend taking this two day adventure. I had a great time. John was a my guide and the guy is amazing. Half dome was a tough hike for me. But John really helped me make it all the way to the top.

We wanted to get the most out of our time in the area and did some research on what was available and found YExplore. We booked a private walking / hike to Sentinel Dome and Taft Point. This was a...

John and Catherine of YExplore did an outstanding job organizing our hike, making sure we knew what to expect, what items to bring, where to meet, etc. On the day of the hike, John and Tim did an amazing job guiding us to the top and back down--they were patient, knowledgeable about the mountain and its history, safety-conscious, and personable....

What an amazing day! I booked a tour for Half Dome with Catherine. She was so sweet and very helpful. No detail was overlooked by her. By the time we got to the meeting place we were very clear on what we needed. We were joined by other people which made the hike so interesting! Our guides were John and... More
