Fritz took us on an impromptu hike through Plaza Blanca, which was spectacular. For 2 hours we climbed the heights and toured the depths of this beautiful area, beloved by Georgia O'Keefe. The hike was enhanced by Fritz, who kept our pace and related well with us as a couple of 50 somethings. He was a storehouse of botanical and historical knowledge!

My friend and I did not want to drive to Taos from Santa Fe, and after discussing a tour with Sue, decided on a full day tour with Santa Fe Walkabouts. Smart decision on our part! Deborah was an excellent guide - prompt, caring, good driver and very knowledgable. We drove up with the low road and back with the spectacular high road, with a stop in Chimayo and an artist's studio, in addition to an excellent tour of the Taos Pueblo and surroundings. All fees were included, and the trip was well worth the cost.

My two daughters, my wife, and I thoroughly enjoyed the mountain trek in the pinzgauer. Chris was a great guide and gave good background information about the different areas we visited. Great views of the fall colors. The off roading was fun - smiles all around!

The highlight of our vacation to Santa Fe this summer was our hiking trip with Santa Fe Walkabouts. The perfectly customized experience started with the detailed and prompt communication we received while planning our trip by phone and email. Thanks to the many options and recommendations we received we were able to pick a hike that was perfect in length and difficulty. Our guide Georges was friendly, knowledgable, and passionate about the outdoors. The hike itself was beautiful and the packed lunch they provided was delicious. We could not have asked for a better guide or overall experience.

We recently took the sunset tour with Fritz and had such a great time! We were picked up at our hotel right on time in a Pinzgauer. That bad boy will go darn near anywhere! We drove out of town, and then the real fun started once we hit an unpaved part of the old Route 66. We made a couple of stops to enjoy the beautiful scenery, including scaling the side of a mountain! Although there was not a lot of sun that evening, we were treated to an amazing lightning storm off in the distance. Very dramatic! Fritz took excellent care of us, and it's obvious he enjoys what he does. Next time we are in Santa Fe, we want to do one of their hiking tours. Highly recommended!
