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 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.

Chris took us on a guided hike to Sentinel Dome and Taft Point and it was the highlight of our trip. It was our first time in Yosemite so we really appreciated his extensive knowledge of the park, it made the hike much more meaningful than if we had attempted it on our own. Catherine was also incredibly helpful in getting our hike set up. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide Chris made our experience unforgettable. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and it’s history and was excited to share that information with us. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a once in a life time experience.

The day was an amazing view of the valley . Ended up hiking 9 miles but was truly pleasurable. Our guide Chris was very knowledgeable and extremely personable. The beginner hike is what you make it. Can be simple but can be modified to a little tougher if you say so. A wonderful experience.

Very good experience for a first time hiker in Yosemite. The guide reached on time and showed us around. Since I could not climb steep elevation, he kept it easy as possible for me. We walked around the valley and he kept explaining about all the vantage points. It was a good experience overall.

Wow wow wow. Better than we hoped. Super fantastic guide. So knowledgeable and relaxed at the same time. Learned so much while enjoying out last day in Yosemite. Kids loved him too. John D was a star guide.

Ashley is pleasant to be with. It’s like walking with a good friend. She took us on an age appropriate walk and we found out relevant infos on Yosemite and made us appreciate this blessed place more. Thank you.

All of the booking was seamless and Catherine was so patient and helpful answering all of our pre-trip questions. Once we arrived to our tour, Ashley was such a fun and cheerful guide! She not only was cognisant of our capabilities in hiking the different terrain but she was so knowledgeable about everything! From the type of plants growing, to the history behind the names, down to the science of all the magic that is Yosemite. If this is your first time visiting, I highly recommend this tour to get your feet wet, and it will help you set up your future visits to be even better and more productive.
