    Henry was the best guide. He took great care of us and provided us everything we could ever need. Water, snacks, back pack, sunscreen etc. He also did a great job touching base with us before the trip.

    Our guide, Lisa, was knowledgeable and made the hike so rich. She was attentive to allowing us the pace we were comfortable with. A treasure trove of information, Lisa made the Sonoran desert come to life for us.

    Our guide Jay did a great job! Very educational. He is very knowledgeable about the desert and it’s plants and animals and having him made us feel comfortable about being in the desert since we have never been. Well worth it as opposed to going it on our own
    Response from Host, Sep 2022

    Awesome hike!
    Charmaine_E, Oct 2021
    Great hike! Kim was an awesome guide. Water and snacks were provided in a small backpack to carry. Kim was patient and allowed for many rest stops. We didn't feel rushed. Many breathtaking views, and information about local vegetation.
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
    Thank you so much for reviewing Kim. It was also great to meet you and it makes me happy she was able to meet your expectations. Thank you for showing my small business. Sincerely, Laurel
    Great desert hike tour
    Yukiko_A, May 2021
    My daughter & I had a nice morning hike with our guide Jay. The trail is pretty mild so most people should be OK, but it’s better to wear good shoes- it’s slippery. The weather is very hot so drinking plenty of water is recommend. Luckily, Jay provided a hiking back, many water bottles and free snacks so no need to prepare beforehand. The people in Arizona are very open & friendly - it was a great Mother’s day gift for me! We ended the day with flavored sparkling water by the van and a refreshing cold water towel to cool off! Would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to wander around the Arizona desert in style.
    Response from Host, Jun 2021
    Thank you for the review. When you book with us we do mention shoes with traction are a good idea not shoes like vans or converse chuck Taylors or Nike free. We appreciate you choosing hiking with Wild Bunch Desert Guides. Thank you so much for supporting my small business. Sincerely, Laurel

    Chris K, Jun 2019
    My guide was Laurel and she was amazing! She was not only knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and vegetation but she was extremely personable, easy to talk to and really fun. Not to mention the trail helped bank some calories for good food/drink later. 🙂
    Response from Host, Jun 2019
    Chris, SHHHHHHHH!! Don't share the negative calorie secrets!! I really enjoyed our hike. I love to get out still and have fun with our guests. Thank you for choosing us for your adventure we really appreciate it. Hope your conference goes well. Thank you for being our guest. Sincerely with a hug, Laurel
