Everyone else has eloquently explained in detail what it's like to spend the day with Stuart and his llamas, so the only thing I can add is a few photos of our hike, which was one of the best days of our trip. The rescued/rehabilitated llamas are just a part of what this experience is all about. The natural beauty... More

We enjoyed this excursion so much that we booked another hike two weeks later and brought our friends. Stuart is engaging, knowledgeable, patient, and genuinely passionate about providing a great experience for everyone. And, he does not skimp on lunch...it truly is a feast and you will not hike back hungry. :-)

Best thing to do near Taos! We booked a lunch after reading the reviews and it did not disappoint. Stuart is an expert with Llamas. hiking, and people! He handled it all perfectly. We learned a lot, laughed a lot and had a great day out in the woods with his Llamas. If you're in the area, this is a... More

Stewart is a very knowledgeable and skilled wilderness guide and overall great guy to be led up into the mountains with a pack of llamas! We were all assessed for personality compatibility for our llamas. Stuart and his wife rescued their llamas and have trained them for trail riding. They all had unique personalities and strengths and weaknesses. We were... More

The owner of Wild Earth, Stuart, rescues llamas and uses them for hiking companions (and in place of pack mules). He currently cares for about 40 llamas on his farm. Llamas are funny creatures with a lot of personality and each group has it's own personal llama companion throughout the hike. Stuart knows so much about the fauna, the area,... More

We had a group of 6, 4 adults and an 11 & 6 yr old. We went on the lunch with a Llama excursion. Leah was great, very professional and explained very clearly what was going to happen. She answered all the questions and was extremely prompt getting back to us. She was flexible with payment as we split the... More

What a blast! Stuart is delightful and the llamas are the icing on the cake. I'm not a hiker or an athlete and this was the perfect afternoon hike. We left from the campground and hiked a couple of miles at a leisurely pace. Stuart made sure to give us lots of information about plants, animals, and geology along the... More

We didn't know what to expect, but when we arrived and introduced ourselves to Stuart and saw the llamas, we knew it was going to be a fantastic day. The llamas were absolutely adorable. We had Picchu and Bucky. The pictures I took of my daughters with them throughout the day will be framed and will be a reminder of... More

Unique adventure in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico. We did the 'Take a Llama to lunch hike' today and enjoyed it more than we even thought we might. Unlike many trail rides or hikes that I've been on, this was a fun and educational excursion. Our guide Stuart was amazing; he was personable, knowledgeable, and clearly cares about his... More

Fantastic!! Would highly recommend to anyone. Stuart is wonderful and his llamas are very sweet. Heed their advice about what to wear/ bring. Bright skies with only a few clouds when we started, but it clouded up and rained pretty hard on our way back. If I had known it was going to rain the way it did, I'd have... More
