"We were novice hikers, and our guide not only helped us with this hike but taught us about hiking for any future trips. She was knowledgeable, kind, and fun! I highly recommend Wildland Trekking and would use them again for a future hike at the Grand Canyon." - Allison F.

"My husband and I completed the "Mule Assisted Grand Canyon Classic" hiking tour with guide Ian, this past week. It was a phenomenal experience! Having the mules transport our gear, we were able to enjoy the hike without being weighed down by heavy packs. The hike was still very strenuous, but Ian did a great job of keeping a good pace, stopping for breaks as appropriate, and supplying us with high energy snacks. During our day at the bottom of the canyon, Ian led us on a day hike, and it, too, was very scenic. We highly recommend Wildland Trekking Company, and this particular hike (and guide!) to anyone heading to the Grand Canyon." - Joy L.

"Our Grand Canyon Classic backpacking trip thru Wildland Trekking was a fantastic introduction to the Grand Canyon and to camping for us. We have been nature lovers our entire lives, but had never camped. Our guide, Chris Hoge, made the entire experience great. His knowledge of the canyon, his easy going personality, his concern for everyone's safety and enjoyment, and his cooking skills make him top notch! The other hikers we were matched up with was perfect company with compatible skill levels. We highly Wildland Trekking for guided Grand Canyon backpacking trips!" - Susan and Matt P.
