What an adventure! It was challenging and life-changing. The group and leaders were absolutely perfect. I will never forget this trip and the camaraderie and support from my fellow travelers. Everything from swimming in paradise to playing and exploring in the Grand Canyon to experiencing native culture.

This program was everything it said it would be. The leaders were great, food was wonderful, scenery was amazing and beautiful. We were challenged physically and received the rewards of meeting those challenges. I would suggest if you are considering this trip, you take seriously getting physically fit before hand. This would include hiking with a 30 lb pack before the trip! Overall a delightful program.

The Havasupai trip exceeded our expectations. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and we were so lucky with the weather. Mike and Mike were terrific team leaders and added so much to the experience with patience and good humor. They shared gladly their vast knowledge of geology, flora, fauna and local history and we learned so much. Through their leadership the group developed a cohesiveness and level of cooperation which only added to the experience. We would look forward to joining Mike and Mike again on another adventure!

My bucket list included hiking into the Grand Canyon. While I found it more difficult than I anticipated (I am not as physically fit as I gave myself credit for) it was a wonderful experience in every way. I would consider returning but feel that I should go on to the next experience. My thanks to the terrific guides and my fellow travelers.
