We really enjoyed our hike with Stephen. We was very well versed in the history and geology of the area. We also felt good about his professionalism and courtesy to other hikers on the trail. The trail is fairly busy and he made sure we stopped to let uphill hikers have the right of way. The trail was fairly easy to navigate.

Our guide Matt was great. He shared his vast knowledge of the canyon and the plant and animal life that dwell there. Matt has a personality that makes you enjoy spending the day with him. My wife and I had a wonderful day in the canyon. Matt was the perfect guide and Wildland Trekking made all arrangements go smoothly.

The hike was absolutely beautiful. It was an amazing way to see the Grand Canyon. Our guide (Dakota) was phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable about the Canyon and provided a lot of historical context to the hike. He also went at “our pace” and didn’t push too much. He cooked up a tasty quesadilla for us at the halfway point and entertained us with dad jokes on the hike back up. We’re excited to return and take a much longer hike into the canyon (hopefully with Dakota).

Excellent experience all around. Jeff was a perfect hike guide. My teen kids were kept engaged and encouraged for the entire 6 mile hike.

Amazing trip our guide Tolman was the best! He made the trip even more special with his incredible cooking skills, knowledge of the canyon, and great stories. My daughter, 14, and I had the best time. Thank you Tolman and Wildland Trekking. Bill

Our day hike with Chris delivered more than we expected. He was engaging and informative and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience around the Grand Canyon including taking the time to prepare lunch for us. We appreciated the hiking and the conversation! Great day.

Our tour guide Stephen was excellent. He was extremely knowledgable of the Grand Canyon and was motivating my wife and I the whole time. This was our first ever hike and he made the experience unforgettable. Thank you!

Great first hike in Grand Canyon. Our guide was Chris E, who was fabulous. He answered all of our dumb questions, was extremely knowledgeable, and had his eye on safety the whole time. We hiked in the midst of an extreme heat wave and he was very accommodating with water and carrything things that became to uncomfortable for us. If you get Chris as you're guide, you are in luck! He brought us to a great lunch spot on the trail and served us fruit, brie, and candied bacon. I mean, WOW!

If I could give this company more than 5 stars, I would. Shayne was our guide and he was more than wonderful. First, he communicated with us prior to our trip via email and text, letting us know what to expect, what to bring and to answer our questions. On the day of the hike, we had several morning mishaps that caused us to be late - we were doing a private hike so thankfully we weren’t inconveniencing any other guests. Shayne was patient, understanding and flexible. Once we got started, he moved at our pace, pointed out all the wonderful things on the trail, took our pictures, took breaks when we needed and told us all about the Grand Canyon both the rim and the bottom. He was also a pleasure to be around - just an all around nice guy. He brought us snacks and a fabulous lunch - amazing sandwiches, chips, cookies. He also had a remote special place off the trail for lunch. I highly recommend this company if you want to hike the Bright Angel Trail. Ask for Shayne if you can. We will definitely try to hike with him again when we return to the Grand Canyon. Thank you!

My son and I did the Rim to Rim Winter Hike, a six day five night experience The weather was fabulous! A group of six including our guide , Moshe. This was my first time backpacking. Wildlands did a great job preparing me for the trip in letting me know what to expect. Moshe was very experienced and professional. I would highly recommend this trip if you want to explore the canyon. Beware that this is a physically and mentally challenging trek. It is equally rewarding!
