Outspire was super. Karen created a special photographic hike that took my wife and I to volcanic vents and arroyos with super vistas. She also gave of wonder running commentary on the local flora and fauna.

I spent a day at Bandelier with Scott as my guide. It was great. I saw many things I would not have seen on my own. The highlight was finding 500 yr old pot shards and stone tools! I highly recommend it.

Had a fantastic 2 hour hike with Karen. She asked all the right questions before we even got to Santa Fe and custom designed a hike that was perfect for us. It was a private hike for me and my friend. We're 50 year old women. She picked us up at our hotel lobby, drove us in her SUV, provided... More

I highly recommend Outspire. They took me on a scenic, challenging hike. The guide was personable and professional. The business office communicates well and is honest.

Had a great day hiking and exploring Bandelier with Scott. Not only did we visit the common areas, but also did some hiking into less visited areas which rewarded us with fabulous views and exploration of ancient sites. The included lunch was perfect to keep us energized! Scott is super friendly and a wealth of information about geology in particular,... More

My wife, Michele, and I visited Santa Fe in April. One of the highlights of our visit was a hike through a portion of Bandelier that few tourists get to see. It was truly spectacular. We hiked in an area that had evidence that it had been inhabited nearly a thousand years ago. We saw many varieties of wild flowers... More

Starting with a very prompt reply to my voicemail, Scott arranged for a lovely walk along La Bajada Hill and Mesa. He provided us with so much information about the ancient and relatively modern history of the area ( the original Route 66), explaining and pointing out geologic formations and rock carvings throughout the hike. We had a very tasty... More

My family of four (two girls aged 9 & 10) went on an early January climb up the Old Highways from Mexico, explaining the history of the area as we went, taking pictures for us and jumping subjects as we wanted! He was wonderfully good-natured, polite and my daughters turned out to start rock collecting that day much due to... More

We could have gone to see the Petroglyph National Monument on our own (it's open and free to the public) but we would not have had even 10% of the experience we had with Outspire. Karen's 30 years of local experience and love for the area really made this a special afternoon. During booking and then leading up to our... More

Thank you so very much for your kind words! We're glad you had a great time and thought to tell others about your experience. One correction, however: New Mexico has many petroglyphs (Native American rock carvings) and many petroglyph areas. Outspire does not guide in Petroglyph National Monument, which is just outside Albuquerque. We did visit another area closer to... More

Being that it was our first trip to Sante Fe. my fiance called ahead to Outspire and spoke with Karen. She was prompt in replying and asked the right questions to customize a hike specifially for me (a 50th bday present.) We were pleasantly suprised at what a great value it was as well. My guide Scott was very knowledgable... More
