The trip to Olympic was great. This is a beautiful part of the world -- huge trees, alpine meadows in full bloom, snow capped peaks, a glacier, mountain streams, a waterfall, and an amazing new experience for our family. Many thanks to our tireless, friendly, well-organized, professional and so very patient guide, Stephanie. We were just beginners at backpacking, and... More

What an epic adventure. Beautiful and challenging. The best way to experience the Grand Canyon in my opinion as a native to AZ (3-day Indian Garden). Our guide, Michael, was a professional. He has great insight into the canyon as well as preparing meals and even fixing blisters. The guy is tough as nails, patient, and I had no worries... More

Our first trip to the Grand Canyon, 4 Australian girls set out on a serious hike into the Grand Canyon... little did we know that the Horseshoe Mesa was clearly set up for actually fit people... we were luckily fit enough to drag ourselves out of the Canyon after a good 13km hike. We lucked out with the weather -... More

The beauty of the Grand Canyon speaks for itself – so need to review it – save to say I have been four times and I never tire of taking in its breath-taking awesomeness. Rim to rim was one of those lifetime ambitions. Travelling from Ireland potentially made the logistics of booking travel, transporting gear and organising backcountry passes very... More

You're absolutely correct, the beauty of the Canyon definitely speaks for itself! We value the individual experience of each of our guests, and we love it even more when groups such as yours come fully prepared and ready to tackle the hike! Properly training for the trip is half the battle and your family made this a truly enjoyable experience... More

Thank you Joe Keyser for a great trip to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite, Jim was very patient and encouraging. The meals he prepared were most appreciated.

We recently returned from a three-day/two-night guided backpack trip to Havasu Falls. It was me, my wife and our 14-year old son, and we all agree it was one of the best trips we have ever had. Just Roughin' It had everything extremely well prepared - we traveled from Ohio and did not have to bring anything of significance with... More

The trip was fantastic, of course the Canyon itself needs no accolads and pictures are useless. a trip of this magnitude and difficulty can only be accomplished with the help of a good support staff. Just Roughin it has that from the dirvers to the guide they are top notch. Pat and Tyler our two drivers were polite, funny and... More

Difficult to articulate what an amazing trip this was -- more than a trip, it was a life experience for almost six months including all the preparation, training, gear checks, packing, repacking, planning, worrying, and finally the trip itself. Our guide, Joseph Tumidalsky, literally MADE the trip. He timed our hikes perfectly to take advantage of the coolest part of... More

Just Roughin' It Company is fantastic and it always a pleasure to business with them. I have utilized their guide services four times now. My hikes included the following: South Kaibab/Bright Angel, Hermit Trail, New Hance/ Grandview and South Kaibab/Cremation Canyon/Bright Angel. I could manage a hike by myself, but enjoy not having to plan, pack, and get those permits... More
