I had the pleasure to do the "Rim to Rim" hike last week with Crystal Ghiglieri as a
guide. This short note is to thank you, and especially Crystal, you have all made
this adventure a once-in-a-lifetime, very enjoyable experience. Crystal is
a soft-spoken, good-humored, calm and competent guide. She was both a
guide, a nurse, a cook, a helper and... a mother to our group of 5. I am sure
all your guides are good, but she is the top. And she probably saved the
life of a poor woman, victim of dehydration. Crystal, thank you for a wonderful experience !

And thank you to the whole team at Wildland Trekking for your professional
approach. I certainly hope to have the pleasure of dealing with you again

An absolutely fabulous six day journey lead by the intrepid Russ Norstrand from Wildlands Trekking. Tough and remote and not for the faint hearted this trek highlighted the beauty and splendour of the Grand Canyon as well as an up close and personal look at the flora and fauna- Well never forget Russ's encounter with a rattle snake. Wildlands Trekking left no stone unturned to help us in our preparation. Couldn't fault them. Tony Healy Ocean Grove Australia

I would like to personally thank Wildland Trekking, especially Drew & Sondra, for the excellent job they did on our recent hiking trip to Havasu. Quite simply -- excellent is the only word that comes to mind. From pre-trip discussion and communcation, to the pre-trip meeting, to the pick up at the hotel, to the hike in and out, as well as the hikes during the time in the canyon, there was no detail left to chance and everything was quite simply amazing. Neither my husband nor I had ever done anything like this before and the comfort we got from our guides that they had everything under control was reassuring. In addition, I have a tremendous fear of heights and they both took great care when descending and ascending the obstacles to get to Beaver Falls. When I started to get really behind on the 10 mile hike out of the canyon, Sondra was right there to encourage me, help me, and make me feel like it was 'alright'. In addition, the fact that everything was provided - tents, sleeping bags, food, etc. - provided another level of convenience for novice hikers. They were simply amazing and I would certainly recommend that anyone interested in seeing these amazing falls -- use WIldland Trekking!

I did two hikes with Wildlands Trekking and they were both excellent. The 4 day Grand Canyon walk from Hermits Trail to the Bright Angel trail took us thru some wonderful scenery. The ways the views change as we walked down into, and along, the canyon are stunning. The 3 day Boulder Mail Trail, near Escalante in Utah, gave us the experience of walking on large areas of unusual 'slickrock'. This is 'petrified' sand dunes, and the rock surface is smooth and undulating.
The guides, Drew and Chris, were professional and friendly, providing lots of interesting information, and the trips were well organized. They also carried lots of food and gear, making our packs light for walks of this length. The equipment supplied was all very high quality. I highly recommend Wildlands Trekking.
