“Fulfilled a life long dream - to hike the backcountry - thanks to JHLlamas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I've done 3 trips with Jill, Dave and a bunch of llamas. The first took us to Heart Lake... a place that few tourists see up close; the second to the Bechler region, with water features everywhere. Some of us bushwhacked our way to see a waterfall that fewer than 100 people a year (maybe less!) have seen.
My last trip was the first offered from the Bechler to Old Faithful, towards 3 Rivers and enjoying a long soak in Mr. Bubbles, a large thermal pool that receives cool water from the river with the hot water from below, to offer a sauna and a rinse in the middle of some truly astonishing country.
I learned a lot about how to pack, how to manage llamas, and enjoy the company of other strangers who quickly became friends. The sites, sounds, fresh air and Jill's wonderful meals enhance any hike through Yellowstone - a one of a kind gift of nature.
I am hoping to be able to schedule another adventure with Jill and Dave soon...can't say enough good things about them and the way they make hiking a joy.

“3 day llama trek was fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

My wife & I went with 5 other guests to Dunanda Falls in Yellowstone National Park with Jill & Dave, the outfitters. This was a great experience that we plan to do again next year. After 50 backpacking isn't so much fun any more, too many achy joints and muscles. But when the llamas carry the load and the outfitters do much of the work, we could enjoy the wilderness and the wonderful scenery that is too far in the back country for day hikes. Jill and Dave were wonderful guides, the meals were first class, and they subtly helped the group get to know one another and enjoy each other's company. Oh yeah, and the llamas are very cool. We each led a llama, and there were no rodeos like what can happen with horses.

“Once in a lifetime experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

So unique and special. Llamas pack your gear for an amazing hike and camping trip. Friendly and accommodating hosts provide information, food, and a welcome environment. Felt like family by the end. Beautiful hikes and well prepared hosts. Would love to travel with them again!

“Llama Love Day Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This was an unforgettable experience on the Coal Canyon trail. The llamas were exceptional--friendly, curious and funny. Our 9-year-old daughter and the two of us had a wonderful time hiking the trail (very simple for non-experienced hikers), and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Jill, Dave and Kristin were awesome guides and they (as well as the llamas) felt like family from the start. The memories shaped on this excursion will surely last a lifetime. We can't wait to return and do another hike! We hiked with tennis shoes and changed into water shoes for the very gentle creek crossings. Be sure to bring cameras for incredible scenery!
