"Absolutely the trip of a lifetime! We enjoyed every single minute. The guides were terrific and getting the know the other people in the group added to the experience. The best part was finding out that we could do things physically that we never imagined we could do - climbing and so on - what a kick! Truly a memorable vacation." - Lee and Linda T.

"One of the best trips we have ever taken! Every day was a new adventure with an incredible variety of natural wonders to explore. Our guides, Steve and Sandra, were the best -- we would follow them anywhere!" - Bill M.

"The Best of Utah Basecamp tour was my second trip with Wildland Trekking and it did not disappoint. Each park was beautiful, each hike was more exciting and challenging than the previous one, and the campsites were comfortable, clean and great places to end the day while contemplating what the next day would bring. Drew, our guide, was organized, knowledgeable and entertaining! He effortlessly juggled his responsibilities as a guide and naturalist, chef and chauffer all while keeping up with four different personalities ("process hikers" versus "product hikers"), our various questions and demands, and always, always knowing when to push, when to take a moment and when to change course. It was an amazing hiking trip and Drew is a fabulous guide! Can't wait to plan my next trip with Wildland Trekking!" - Maria S.
