What an incredibly wonderful day hiking the Columbine Creek with Pichu by my side and Stewart sharing his vast knowledge of local history, herbal lore and Lama etiquette. In addition, this blissful hiking excursion was embellished with a delectable luncheon buffet, carried by Diego the Lama and set up and served by Stewart. You couldn't have asked for a more... More

We were wondering why the locals referred to this area in almost reverential tones. Once we got into the Valle Vidal we understood. Stewart's passion for what he does in this amazing place was infectious and really made a huge difference in our enjoyment of it. The team at Wild Earth Llama Adventures - Stewart, Leah, and seven of their... More

Thank you so much for the amazing review and recommendation. I'm so glad you enjoyed the Valle Vidal so much. Stuart and the local conservationists call that area the Yellowstone of the Rockies. It is magical. Come back again and we can introduce you to some other local treasures. Happy Fall!! More

Had an awesome hike with those friendly personable creatures called llamas, my first experience with them and I'm in love!

My family of four went on the Take a Llama to lunch tour with our guide Stewart and it was a blast. We took a hike through the National Forest to the north of Taos, and our super fun llamas carried all of the food, water and extra clothing that we needed. My sons are 6 and 10 and they... More

Stuart is a great guide. He's knowledgable and well spoken. You can tell he really cares for his furry friends. Those Llamas have some really interesting personalities. One of my favorite parts of the trip was when our Llama, Pichu, kept "mooing" at me when I would pet him. He would ease his way closer to my wife, but give... More

Thanks so much for the fun review!! Yes, you nailed the llama personalities! Hilarious! Also, too funny that one of our t-shirt ideas is exactly that. When we slow down for a minute, we'll get to it!

Stuart offered us a unique experience. I come away with a deeper sense of wilderness and a new experience of group travel. Before we started Stuart introduced us to our llamas and explained that we would share various tasks and a group experience within the ability of each of us. Stuart's gourmet food, knowledge of environs, storytelling, his sparkle, equipment... More
