“Best Guided Trip I've ever been on...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

...and I've been on a lot! We did a 3 day trip to the Havasupai villiage and camped near the creek between two of the falls. Everything - EVERYTHING - from the logistics to get there, the hike in with a guide who was not only knowledgable on the geology - but was also a friend of the natives which made the hike in more enjoyable, to the food and the campsite were all awesome. Couldn't have had a better time - and I'm going back. Rim to rim next year. Thanks to FSG - I'd recommend them to anyone.

“Hermit Trail - three day trek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Just back from three days in Hermit Trail ini Grand Canyon with Four Seasons - had a fabulous time. Our guide was Bob who was knowledgeable, flexible, patient and really looked out for us all. We were a smallish group, three of us plus Bob which made the whole experience really personal.

The briefing was excellent so we set off feeling like we really knew what to expect from the trip. During the hike Bob made sure we all looked after ourselves and provided endless snacks! At camp we really did nothing - Bob set up all the tents, cooked, cleaned up. This really was basic camping with 5 star service.

Highly recommended.

“Dave was AWESOME!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

So we did a 5 day 4 night Living Social deal in Arizona, we visited Sedona and Flagstaff. We started out in Scottsdale our first night, there our guide Dave picked us up the following morning and drove us to Sedona, we visited Red Rock State Park on the first day. The next day we were off to Flagstaff, we visited Wupatki Native American ruins and Sunset Volcano Crater. Dave was very knowledgeable and was just a very pleasant guide. He also had a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed him! The next day was our hike at the south rim of the Grand Canyon, it was amazing! The views were great, he was very tentative to everyone in our groups needs. He was very patient with my husband who was having a bit of a hard time on parts of the hike. But thanks to Dave, my husband made it!! We were really really happy with our guide, we would love to have his guidance again if we do another trip to Arizona! Thanks again Dave for an amazing time!!!

“Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Hiking the canyon rim to rim has been an ambition of ours for many years, having visited the South Rim twice previously as day tourists. Based in the UK, we decided it was best to find an
outfitting company specializing in this kind of hike. After several internet searches, we were impressed by FSG's web site and prompt, friendly replies to email enquiries. Two of our party were worried about carrying the packs and the intensity of the heat, but we followed their suggested training, and heeded the warnings about water and electrolytes, and the hike was a great success. Brian was an excellent, friendly guide, who effortlessly set up camp and prepared delicious meals for us. We were amazed at how little we had to do.
Thanks again to Four Seasons for helping us achieve a long held ambition with comparative ease. We hope to return to Arizona and hike with FSG again.

“Extrodinary Rim to Rim experience from Four Seasons Hiking Guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great folks at Four Seasons Hiking Guides. Excellent information and packing lists. Great communications, orientation, and all questions answered timely. Our group of five novice hikers were well informed and well prepared thanks to Brian at FSG and Dave, our incredible guide. It was well worth the time training with a 35lb pack. Truly an experience of a lifetime.
