“We wish you well and congratulate you for your contribution to a better world!”


“You were excellent! We have a lifetime of memories in the three days we spent together. Remember you are welcome in our home if you decide to head North.”


“We thoroughly enjoyed our hike with you. The canyon was more than we thought it would be and your professionalism and company were great. We could not have found a better guide.
Hope to make it back to see you soon and take you up on the overnight to the falls area.”

“My children and I have never seen the GC so we booked a tour with your company. Rob James was our guide for the day and I have to tell you what a great time we had! I believe a guide has the ability to “make or break” your trip and I can tell you Rob really MADE our trip a great experience. He was very patient, friendly, humorous and knowledgeable during the trip. We had such a great time. I was impressed that he continually engaged my children, Jake and Kate during the trip.”

Burrum Family

“Thank you for the beautiful trip to Indian Gardens and Plateau Point. Ever since that hike we took to Dripping Springs last October. I feel a whole new world has opened up for me.”

Ann Mills

“On behalf of Bea, Loretta, and Sharon we wanted to thank you again. We really appreciated your help with taking such great attention to Bea (94 yrs old). You made her experience of the Grand Canyon even greater.”


“Again I want to tell you and John how much fun we had. We are all talking about coming back next year. You guys could not have been any nicer and professional. Not one time did any of us doubt your abilities and that made us all feel very safe and secure. As a mom I judge people by how nice they are to my kids and you guys get an A++++++. These memories will last a life time and hope to make more.”


“We would like to thank you so much for your superb tour and for giving us a day to truly remember for the rest of our lives.”

“Rob, Tiffany and Chelsea, Thanks for the great adventure! We had a fantastic time and enjoyed every moment. Your cooking was great too!”


“Jacob was terrific. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide and a fabulous individual. Not only was he a font of information about about everything related to the Grand Canyon, but he was a great cook, an interesting conversationalist, a careful planner, and a thoughtful companion. He was good with me about my fear of bridges, he was very respectful of our pace and our desire to be out early and do different adventures. All in all, he made the trip as great as it was.”


“I had a wonderful time on the Havasu Falls hike with Tiffany, Chelsea and the group on Aug 19-21. You and your guides run a first class operation!”


“Our guide, Drew, tailored our day tour to allow us to truly capture the beauty and grandeur of the Grand Canyon at our pace without having to deal with the crowds. Our short hikes off the beaten path afforded us with tremendous views and perspectives of the Grand Canyon most others would never see. His incredible knowledge and insight gave us an understanding of the Grand Canyon, both past and present, that we never would’ve gotten otherwise. Drew: Thank You!! You’re the best!” “On our day hike, our guide, Eric gave us the unique perspective of hiking into the Grand Canyon using his many years of proficiency as a hiker. This gave my wife and I a huge comfort factor since our family did not have much experience hiking. As with Drew, Eric allowed us to go at our own pace. His knowledge of the history of the Grand Canyon gave us a great hiker’s perspective.”

“What can I say, but amazing! I just got back from the trip to Havasu Falls today and it was wonderful. Kevin has got to be one of your best guides. He and Tim went beyond the call of duty to help my team of photographers in every way possible.”


“My wife, Lisa, and I came out of Havasupai on Wednesday the 18th after four days down there with Jacob Wahler and his sister Erin. I just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time and that Jacob was absolutely terrific. He’s genuinely a wonderful young man and his combination of thoughtfulness and uncontainable enthusiasm really added to our trip. I could go on, but I’m sure you get the point: he’s a gem and he added immeasurably to the quality of our trip. Thanks again to you. We were blown away by Havasu Falls and were really pleaded with all of our dealings with you and Pygmy Guides and have already begun spreading the word.”


“I suppose it is clear from my satisfaction survey that I had the best trip of my life!!! I just want to be sure to thank the right people. First, the trip was planned perfectly. I never had to think, worry or ask – everything was provided. I can’t imagine anything that might have mad the hike any better”


“Please let us express our gratitude for the recent trip to Havasu Falls. It was a spectacular experience, professionally organized and run in every detail. Kevin was fantastic, herding us “cats” gently and taking great care of us. I was amazed at his love of the Canyon and his eagerness to share the wonder of the surroundings with us. Certainly his attention and dedication on the trip were beyond any expectations, and it helped make the trip spectacular. We were blown away. Us flat landers express our deepest gratitude. Kevin is a gem that should make the ownership proud. If the rest of your team is like that, then congratulations on your hiring skills!”

“I wanted to pass on my sincere appreciation of having been assigned to Eric as our guide. Eric provided a most enjoyable experience through is knowledge… He certainly established my expectation to one day return to the GC to expressly hike and camp…”
