Had an incredible time with paws for adventure. My friends and I did the shortest tour and it was still amazing! Perfect amount of time for some Texans. Service was prompt and friendly. Definitely recommend!

Thanks Krista! Yep, that short ride is often just enough on a cold January day! We often recommend the short ride for temps -25F and colder. Glad you chose our Paws crew - they truly love what they do and it shows!
