Dan was great. Informative and fun to b with. 100% effort to find the birds for us. Went to out of the way beautiful places in Yosemite with no one there. Definitely recommend this tour.

I did a day hike to the top of Sentinel Dome, and then the next day did a bird-watching naturalist hike. Both days were amazing. Knowledgeable and friendly guides. Good pricing. Easy to follow meet up instructions. Everything about it was A+. I highly recommend YExplore.
