I went on the Take a Llama to Lunch hike and I highly recommend it! The llamas are great and Stewart is a really knowledgeable and awesome guide. Lunch was delicious as well. The hike is not too strenuous, so it would be suitable for most people.

I had no idea what to expect other than spending some time with llamas outdoors. Well, I was blown away! First, the hike was a good one and not a boring stroll. We each had our own llama to bond with which was so amazing! Loved setting up camp, making a fire and enjoying lunch with nature. Stuart, the owner... More

We did the rim tour due to the snow still being too deep to go down the gorge trail. However, it was just perfect. Beautiful views, nice hike, good healthy lunch, and great llamas. A must do activity if in Taos.

I took the three day trip. This is a very top notch organization. Leiah runs the front office and is very smart, knowledgeable and friendly. So right up front they are excellent. The directions they send you "work" in a manner of speaking but they don't quite account for the distances. The Wildes are respectful of social and ethnic differences.... More

My husband and I went on the Lunch with Llamas hike. Our llama for the day was Mardi Gras. What a sweet, gentle llama. We learned so much about the llamas and all about nature on our hike with Stuart, our guide. It was a beautiful day and hike. Thank you for offering this great experience!

We all had a great day hiking with the llamas and Stuart. It was myself, my husband and our three kids (9, 11, 12). The kids told me multiple times how much fun they were having. They each got a llama to walk up the mountain. It is not a strenuous activity. We wore tennis shoes. Bring layers of clothes... More

We had such a fabulous time during our Lunch with a Llama adventure! We started by helping Stuart to brush the llamas and give them locally grown treats. There were probably 12 people on our hike and the little children got their very own llama. The adults shared one along the mile long hike up Columbine Trail. Our llama was... More

We just finished the 3-day llama trek into the Valle Vidal area of the New Mexico Sangre de Christo mountains. We were with a total of 10 people including the guide. The group included four 12 and 13 year olds. We had 9 llamas and were able to hike back into the wilderness to be completely away from civilization. We... More

The "Lunch with the Llamas" hike was a very unique experience. The scenery was beautiful. The llamas were cute and friendly. The guide, Stuart, was very knowledgable and interesting. He taught us many interesting facts about the llamas and the surrounding nature. The lunch was tasty turkey sandwiches and salad. However, this is not the trip to take if you... More
