Kudos to Stuart for making our llama trek through Columbine Canyon a truly magical experience.

My wife and I try to travel on outdoor adventures as often as possible. This hiking excursion with Stuart and his llamas was one of our all time favorites. The llamas were very well adapted to humans. They are friendly animals that carried our gear and love to graze on anything they can as you hike along the trail. Stuart... More

The day of walking down the Rio Grande Gorge with my family and our incredible guide Stuart and the llamas was a wonderful experience. I felt we were in very competent hands and safety was first. It was a great relaxed pace and a perfectly lovely day that we all loved. I unequivocally recommend this tour!
