Stuart was exceptional! The llamas were wonderful! Stuart has such a vast knowledge of everything wilderness, Southwestern history, llamas, and I’m sure so much more. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed taking our llamas down to the Rio Grande. Stuart picks the trail he will Do with his group based on the demographic, which I thought was extremely well thought out. It was a beautiful day and the lunch Stuart prepared was exceptional!

Loved everything about our day with Stewart and llamas. Great guide, lovely llamas, fantastic food choices for lunch, beautiful weather and scenery. Highly recommended. Oh btw, if you are wondering, easy out and back hike of about 3 miles. Very easy, not a workout if you are fit, but totally fun!!

This was the highlight of our week in the Santa Fe/Taos area. My husband and I were staying at a farm nearby and were excited to find the chance to hike with llamas close by and it exceeded our expectations in every way. Booking was handled easily by phone and was thorough in terms of checking our ages and fitness levels. We were then sent the confirmation and details of what to bring and where and when to meet quickly. Stuart then emailed the day before to confirm the meeting place and time. No trouble finding it in the morning--although I guess the sight of a trailer with multiple llamas tied to it was a big clue! Stuart, the owner and guide, is one of the most friendly and knowledgeable people I've ever met. Once our group were all there (7 in total plus Stuart) he gave us a thorough rundown on how to handle the llamas, information about the area we were hiking in (the Columbine Honda Wilderness Area) and also told us about how he came to be doing what he does, which was fascinating. Then we chose our llamas. My husband and I walked with Loki and Thor, the youngest of the group, and they were perfectly behaved, other than stopping to nibble on trees and plants, which is to be expected. We loved them! Their large packs carried all our stuff, including lunch. The walk was great for all fitness levels. We certainly could have hiked faster or further but that wasn't really the point of it. It's really more about enjoying the llamas, the landscape, and Stuart's encyclopedic knowledge of the area. We were impressed how much time he spent with all of us, always looping back to chat with whoever was at the back. The area was stunning and we learned such a lot, including getting to taste some plants and berries that Stuart picked along the way. And on top of that he produced a table and tablecloth and laid out a tasty lunch of bread, cheeses, meats, salad, etc. in a meadow before we hiked back down. What an amazing day. I could not recommend this experience more for anyone who loves the outdoor life and animals and wants to learn more about the environment.

What a wonderful and detailed review. Thank you so much for all the personal touches you've included. So glad to hear about how your day went, and thanks for mentioning the trek is truly about education and the experience, rather than the challenge (for some I should ad). We hope to see you next time around!!

I can’t tell you how amazing this hike was!! YOU MUST DO IT. The guide is literally the nicest and most knowledgeable dude you will ever get to spend a day with and the llamas are the goofiest little fluff balls. AND you are allowed to snuggle with them. I REPEAt. YOU CAN HUG THE LLAMAS. I had the joy of bonding with Diego who I probably snuggled with more than I actually focused on hiking, which I have zero regrets about. This hike really fires up a passion and appreciation for these animals and nature than you would ever think. I’ll never forget my little Diego, his nuzzles on my face while we were walking, and the experience in general. Gorgeous hike and great people!

AWWW! Amazing! Llama therapy at it's finest:). He came out of the experience with so much llama love as well. Diego has developed quite a fan club. Maybe you''ll come back and see him again someday. Have a beautiful day!
