Snowshoeing in the Kit Carson National Forest was FABULOUS! Stuart is a guide extraordinaire. I wondered how he could make the trek fun for my super in shape 23 year old daughter and manageable for me, at age 62. He nailed it! He showed her how to do some off the trail exploring on snow shoes as well as coaching... More

My sister and I did the lunchtime hike with the llamas into the Rio Grande Gorge. It was incredible. From Stuart's contagious enthusiasm, to the quirky personalities of the llamas, to the breathtaking vistas during the hike--this was easily the #1 highlight of our New Mexico trip. I want to come back and do the overnight hike! You will never... More

An attraction/activity like this is hard to find anywhere and should not be missed if you're in the Enchanted Circle area. We were particularly impressed with Stuart's knowledge of the mountains and his eagerness for sharing it with everyone. He is especially keen on sharing with the kids. Highly recommended!

My wife and I (in our late 20s) took a llama to lunch this past summer and enjoyed every minute of it. Our group's age ranged from kids as young as 10 on up to adults in their 60's. I know we had a great time, and I think they all did too. Stuart was great about having everyone get... More

Absolutely recommend this outing if you have the time. We spent a great part of a day hiking to 11,000 ft. (yikes - we are from Minnesota). Our llama friends were so much fun and did the hard part of carrying our gear and lots of water. Each had their own personality and at the end of the day we... More

My wife, 2 boys (8yr & 6yr), and myself had a GREAT time. One of my boys was initially scared of the llamas, but once he was intorduced to Apollo (his llama for the day) by Stuart (our tour guide), he found a new friend in Apollo. The llamas were extremely friendly and easy to manage. They seemed to know... More

My sister and I had the pleasure of taking 'a llama to lunch' and we had the most amazing time!! I absolutely love the fact that these llamas have been rescued from abandonment or neglectful situations and now have a very loving great home. Stuart is a wealth of information, so funny, friendly, and encouraging to all hikers and llamas... More

This was my first experience with llamas, and I have to say, it was unforgettable! Beautiful animals, gorgeous mountains, a well experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly hiking guide, and a wonderful lunch. My llama was friendly (they all were!) and watched dutifully over my shoulder the whole time. Stuart gave us so much information about the land and his llamas, and... More

Three years ago when we were vacationing in New Mexico I came across information on having lunch with llamas....it sounded odd but fun and interesting. Recently we came back to New Mexico and it seemed the perfect opportunity to follow up on this missed adventure. My husband was the biggest skeptic but is a great sport and went along to... More
