Nick of Southwest Trekking led an hour-long guided hike along Ventana Canyon for Loews Resort guests. It was a wonderful, relaxed early morning hike that about 10-12 resort guests participated in. Nick had head lights for us and was super knowledgeable about the flora and fauna along the way. He was wonderfully entertaining and really connected with all of us in the group. My friends and I were so extremely glad we found out about this hike and to have Nick as our guide. Thanks again, Nick! Greetings from Houston!

I stumbled across these guys while staying at the JW Marriott, where they have a service desk. Anthony turned cartwheels to line us up a high-end road bicycle on very short notice. Among other things, he had two bikes brought up from their main base of operations so I could pick between them (both were first class carbon models). He couldn’t have been more responsive and accommodating. He also was very helpful in recommending hikes on the extensive trails that started at the back door of the resort. I discussed with the owner, Jake, some of their mountain biking excursions and it sounded like they do some very challenging ones that I plan to do with them in the future. Southwest added a great dynamic to a great trip and accessing them right out of the JW Marriott was incredibly convenient.

Trek in Catalina foothills. This 4-hour trek was by far the highlight of our 10 day holiday. Very well judged route was exactly hard enough to make us feel we had put effort in to the day, but not exhausted. John knew when we wanted a rest and when to press. Beautiful views. Very friendly and informative re geology, flora and fauna and lots of other subjects too. We will definitely call SW Trekking when we next go to Tucson.

In Tucson, staying at the JW Marriott, for Spring Break with the fam including my 2 crazy boys (8 & 10). We decided to put the boys in a 2 hr guided desert biking adventure while my husband golfed and I watched their little sis. Although I was a bit nervous at first, sending my little boys off into the desert with a stranger and full Camelbaks, I was quickly settled by meeting their awesome guides (Jim and Cassi) and seeing my kids ear to ear grins as they practiced riding their bikes on the front lawn of the hotel (sorry JW). 2 hrs later, when I met them back at the drop off point, I was greeted by my sweaty and happy (but amazing not tired enough) kids with stories of their amazing adventure. My oldest enjoyed it so much he even behaved himself for the balance of the trip to earn another outing (little bro was golfing with dad). Cassi was his private guide this time. On his 2nd trip, however, my little daredevil encountered a lose patch of dirt (I'm told it was not bc he was going too fast... 😕) and had a wipeout worthy of American Funniest Videos. Fortunately for him, Cassi was prepared with all the first aid gear and was even nice to him as he picked the rocks out of his wound. Fear not, the only permanent damage was to the little aspiring ego and the story will surely live on to be larger than life. In summary, a fabulous experience for my kids and that makes one happy mom! Thanks Southwest Trekking!

I was referred to Southwest Trekking by the concierge of the hotel at which I was staying with my family. I emailed the owner in advance of my arrival in the area and worked out details for a half-day hike for me alone. I am an experienced and avid hiker, so I requested a route with elevation gain and great views. I was not disappointed. My guide, Koi, was on on-time, friendly, and very knowledgable about local flora and fauna. In short, my hike on Wasson Peak was great and I would recommend ST to anyone.
