Having never hiked in the Southwest before, my hubby & I opted for a guided hike. Linda did a great job setting a comfortable pace and sharing her deep knowledge of the desert plants, animals and culture. The views were amazing and we walked away with so much more info than we would have had self-guided. I highly recommend this tour and wish we had more time for a second tour through this operator (REI). Thank you!!

We had Tim as a guide! He was amazing! He had snacks and water and was very aware of the trails. He was knowledgeable and allowed us to make decisions on how we felt! We were beginner riders, but this tour was 100% worth it!!!

The staff at REI, met all are expectations for my wife and I. The experience and knowledge we gained will always be appreciative. Shout out to Jim King and Denny " like the restaurant " .

Larry was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about the wild like and vegetation in the desert.

Weather was great! Our guides were very knowledgeable and fun!
