“Hiking Rim 2 Rim in the Grand Canyon was a spiritual and life-changing experience for all of us – I cannot say enough about the exceptional customer service, attention to detail, and overall trip approach provided by Four Season Guides (FSG). The extensive expertise, company culture and overall philosophy makes FSG a stand out among the herd. I‘m so glad we did not pick the global “imitator” – while the outside wrapper may look identical – it was clear after running into a couple of those groups on the trail, we made the very best choice. It would have ruined the experience for me to be a part of a “circus clown car” hike – loud, rushed, and garish. FSG’s local, long time roots in the community, knowledge, respect of the canyon, the process and their clients has won us over forever. We are already planning our next adventure. Five star all around!” – Melissa H.
Hi Dave – I want to tell you that my rim to rim hike was exhilarating, exciting, excrutiating, and absolutely the most satisfying adventure I’ve ever been on. You could not have put together a better group of fellow hikers, and a totally fantastic guide in Lily. There has not been a day I don’t think about it. When I think about how many people visit the canyon, and how very few do what we did, what a sense of accomplishment. Thank you. When a person stands at the Bright Angel terminus and stare across to our north starting point, you can’t help but think it’s impassable. Lily was absolutley fantastic. We had danger, with the thunderstorm going down the north, to the rattler heading up, which one of us would have stepped on if not for Lily. On the trail, we saw one one of your competitors, I’m so glad I went with you. I have and will always recommend Four Seasons. You and your staff are 1st class. Thank You very much! – Rich H.
“My family and I have returned from our Rim to Rim experience with Four Seasons and more specifically with Matt. One word summary – Amazing! From the equipment pick up and orientation talk until we returned to our hotel after the hike you guys were great and professional. Matt is world class. It was great to have a guide who is spiritually connected to the canyon, loves his work and has great pride in sharing his “temple” with others. His knowledge and sharing of the geology and history of the people was truly captivating. He was amazingly respectful of our crazy and diverse dietary habits every meal and snack. I was more than a little challenge with a real fear of heights – Matt was so supportive and helpful in getting over those bridges (I hated every one of them).
Summary — you guys did a great job. I will pass this on to anyone you think I can to help your efforts to continue a first class backpacking company.” – David S.
“Highly recommend using Four Season Guides! They are just incredible! We just finished the Rim to Rim trip with them and I am completely blown away by how much Four Season Guides enhanced the experience. Our guide, Bob, was so encouraging, knowledgeable, and made the best meals while on the trail – who knew you could have “fiesta night” with chicken burritos, guacamole and salsa while sitting under the stars in the Grand Canyon? Just incredible!
Four Season Guides is a great group of people. Everyone I spoke with was so responsive, helpful and professional. These people just love what they do and know everything about the hikes. I will be forever grateful that we used them for our Rim to Rim hike, and I can’t wait to work with Four Season Guides on our next adventure!!! – Jacqueline J.
