What an Incredible trip! Jason and the folks at Discovery Treks exceeded our expectations and showed us exactly how beautiful the Grand Canyon is. Jason knew the canyon inside and out and cooked up some great meals for us after very mentally and physically challenging days. I couldn’t recommend this trip any more. This was my first hike and I found it challenging but rewarding.

The trip was truly once in a lifetime. The different scenes of the Grand Canyon were absolutely breathtaking. This is not something a beginner backpacker should do alone and that’s why we couldn’t thank our guide Katie enough! She was knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be around. She pointed out everything we wanted to know about, took our picture around every turn and most of all made sure we were always safe and good to go. I couldn’t give her enough props and I can’t thank discovery treks enough for the once in a lifetime opportunity!!!!

Discovery Trek is the real deal. From the booking to orientation to the trip itself they had it all covered. Their gear is well maintained & organized (for a trip like this it’s super important to help make things go smooth) But you know what the absolute best part of the trip was? Phil Noriega! Super passionate about his job & incredibly skilled at it and it shows. Properly trained and certified so you know you are in good hands. But he’s much more than that, he also is… Gourmet Chef History Buff Wealth of knowledge of wildlife & fauna Motivator All that being said, if you are looking into this type of trip- go with Discovery Trek. If you book the trip-request Phil.

Just back from an amazing 3 day camping hike in the grand canyon guided by the wonderful Savannah. We really enjoyed her relaxed and friendly style combined with her considerable hiking experience and local knowledge. Superb tracks, great food and amazing views. Camping was really fun and comfortable with excellent kit. We experienced all types of weather so could enjoy the changing vista. Thoroughly recommend.

Savannah our guide was so kind but firm - a true professional. She kept us safe and well fed with delicious meals. It was a seamless experience from discovery treks. The hike was hard so prepare in advance to enjoy it. Otherwise, thank you all for a trip of a lifetime!

I did the Cremation Canyon hike. It was truly an amazing experience. Our guide Savannah was incredible. I am new to over night backpacking and she was so patient, gave us a lot of information regarding the Canyon, made great food and was really a joy to be around. This hike was intense so just be prepared. Incredible scenery and a once in a lifetime experience that I don't think would have been as great as it was without her. Thank you!

Kennan was our guide. He took care of our beginner group, made great food, and was able to accommodate our group needs on the fly. A great trip!

2 night down to Indian garden campground with Katie. She was a most excellent guide . Very knowledgeable and professional with her duties. She took into account our extreme weather and help guide us with changing our times to hike down and back up at the least hottest times . Her first thought was always our comfort and positive experience. She was a delight to get to know too .
