My 6-year-old had been on a horse before, but was not a good rider. The horses were very friendly, and the scenery and trails were spectacular. It was a... More

Booked a horseriding tour for the whole family. Never got our money back when we unfortunately needed to cancel 6 weeks before arrival! Even worse, they simply do not react when sending emails or even on the phone!

Been on a few trail rides over the years with very mixed experienced. This one is really worth it. Firstly, it gives access to parts of the valley which cannot be reached on foot or on other organised "mechanical" tours. Secondly, the guides - we were with Marlo - are incredibly friendly and polite, trying to tailor the tour to... More

I did the three hour trail ride. I've been riding since I was 5 and usually get kind of bored at Tourist trail rides but not with this one. Marlo our guide asked us how experienced we were and gave us the perfect horses. He also made sure that I could galopp a lot and explained all the interesting things... More

We did the two hour jeep tour with Marvin and the three hour horseback tour with Marlo. Both were professional and well informed. They went out of their way to make our tours memorable and exciting! Great job!!!!

Took a 3 hour trail ride with my Navajo Guide, Kirdale. I haven't ridden a horse in over 30 years but the fine staff alleviated any concens, made me feel comfortable and safe. Kirdale answered all my questions from culture to rock formations. It was an enjoyable ride with a calm and capable horse. A peaceful and enjoyable morning in... More

booked onto 2h30m tour with driver Tracey. Exciting but safe drive round a truly memorable landscape which Tracey bought to life with her comprehensive historical knowledge of her people, their culture and their religion. She answered our many questions with patience and clarity. We could not imagine any other guide enhancing our experience so memorably.

We went to the Grand Canyon as well as some other parks but what we will remember will be the horse back riding adventure with Marlo. He made several stops to make needed adjustments and keep us comfortable and safe. We can't wait to go back either this fall or next spring some time. Thanks Roy Black and Marlo!!!!

My father and I decided to book a tour with Black's business and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were late to our appointment, but Christine was very patient and helpful. She even let us do the long trail we really wanted; even though we were late. We were met by the gentleman Marlo, who immediately, was friendly and ready to make... More

We took the 2.5hr jeep tour and loved it. It was just my husband and me and our guide Traci... We went into the back country and saw some amazing sights (more than you see and with more information than the self-guided driving route). We then did the horse tour the next day. Again it was just us and our... More
