Your trip with the llamas is only the beginning. No matter how long or short your experience is it will truly be memorable and you are foolish not to take this opportunity if you are within at least 100 miles. Food is delicious and healthy, the hike is wonderful and company could not be better kept. Don't sleep on this guy

Two friends and I went on the llama trek this past week on a girls trip to New Mexico. Reading the other reviews, what more can I say other than the whole experience was wonderful. Stewart guided us through the gorge with patience and care and answered the million questions we had. The views were excellent and Stewart let us sit by the Rio Grand while he set up a delicious lunch. Talk about feeling privileged. Oh, and did I mention I am in love my llama K2? What a sweetie! Would do it again in a quick minute. Thank you Stewart for the amazing experience. Your trek was the highlight of our trip.

Last week I went on a girls' trip to Santa Fe. One day we spent the day with Stuart and Wild Earth Llama Adventures--the Lunch with a llama trip. I cannot begin to tell you what an awesome adventure that was. There were three of us and we each had our own llama that somehow matched each of our personalities. My llama-Diego was such a sweetheart but so were Raja and K2. We chose the trip down the switchbacks to the river. Stuart was so patient and careful with us as we traveled down the canyon and then back up. He also provided an awesome lunch. Stuart has so much knowledge of the environment as well as the history of the area. AND he is so nice and tons of fun himself. I would love to do this again and I would recommend it to anyone--no matter your age (we are all 3 in our early 60s). Definitely the trip of a lifetime.

A day we will not forget was spent with Stuart, and Raja (sweetest llama ever) and two other couples, descending and then ascending (!!!) the Rio Grande Gorge. The views through the gorge are outstanding, and Stuart's knowledge of the environment and history of the area was excellent ... and greatly appreciated. Our llamas carried the gear down to the bank of the river where we enjoyed a relaxing, and very good lunch set out by Stuart. I am not a fitness buff, but wouldn't have missed this experience for the world! Stuart is a professional, and it shows in the care he takes - one of the group was bothered by altitude sickness part way through the day. Stuart carefully monitored her, and did not rush the climb but gave as much time as needed. In the Taos area, this is a MUST!

What a great time my sister-in-law and I had with our llamas Diego and K2 and our wonderful guide Stuart! We had the choice of several hikes and we chose the one along the rim of the Rio Grande River Gorge. Fabulous views and an easy hike (I'm 64!) and the llamas carried our lunch. I can't recommend this highly enough. This is the second time my sister-in-law has been on this trip and I would go again in a minute.
