About Get Lost Tours
I'm Chris, a guide of 20 years in Terlingua TX. During certain summers I've guided in places from West Virginia to Hawaii. I have studied, learned, and shared interp and experiences from all these places. I am WAFA (Wilderness Advanced First Aid) and CPR certified. I have enjoyed sharing and teaching about flora, fauna, geology, history, paleontology, and even my personal life. I enjoy learning from the many guests I have shared time with. I started Get Lost Tours because of this and much more.

Chris gave us very good information about the area and history. He was very knowledgeable about places to visit. He took us on a wonderful walk and also help us with our interests in birdwatching. He is an excellent guide. I highly recommend him for a great experience.

My wife and I experienced the Sunset tour with Chris. Y’all,, Chris is the real deal. In only a few minutes you come to realize that Chris has a true and genuine spirt. He loves the land and loves to show it to you. When you have Chris,, you don’t hire a guide,,, you make a new friend who is excited to show and teach you about his home, where he lives and loves the land. This is where you want to be.

Chris was totally awesome. We did his off grid tour which included a 4X4 trip up a beautiful road. He was very knowledgeable about plants and the area as well as very open with sharing all his off grid experience. We had a great time. He takes it very slow and is very experienced so the ride was super smooth in his Hummer H3. If you get a chance to book a tour with Chris you won't regret it. We made an instant connection and hope to tour with him again someday.

My review is a little overdue (sorry, Chris), but this was a fantastic experience for my husband and I. We had a limited time to spend in Big Bend and Chris showed us more sights than we ever expected! It was very cold the day we went on our tour and Chris made sure we stayed warm in his dependable jeep and entertained. Well worth it! Thanks, Chris. We plan to tour Big Bend again and we will definitely schedule another tour with you!

We felt so blessed to have found Chris with Get Lost Tours for our one day adventure of Big Bend! Chris communicated promptly with arranging our tour and meeting up the day of our tour. He accommodated our desires for our tour to what we pretty much wanted. Most importantly, we desired a day tour with just my husband and I and Chris drove us comfortably in his Hummer. We saw great value being able to be driven on unpaved, rocky roads while being informed about the mountain formations, plants and history. At the end of our tour, we were grateful to have made a new friend because Chris is an extremely nice individual. No regrets.
