Our tour guide Yermo was very knowledgeable, kids enjoyed learning about different plants, rocks and we even saw fossils! The experience was exhilarating, we enjoyed our tour of Buckskin Gulch very much. Yermo led us through the ancient Indian path into the canyon with ease. I would recommend anyone thinking of exploring buckskin to definitely do it with Yermo.
Fantastic Day!

Guyermo took excellent care of us and was so informative. He made our experience very personal. Our family made a new friend.
Experience of a lifetime

Yermo was an incredibly helpful, knowledgeable guide who showed us fascinating archeological items and sights during the hike to the canyon, including fossilized dinosaur tracks and petroglyphs. For the climb down into - and up out of - the slot canyon, he provided the right type of firm, specific instruction for my group of inexperienced climbers. There were only a few other people around during our hike to the slot canyon, and we got to experience the canyon itself with no one else there. Words cannot do justice to the otherworldly splendor and beauty of the canyon. Although the climbing was sometimes strenuous, that added a feeling of personal accomplishment to the experience. I am recommending this tour to everyone I know planning to travel to the area.
Wonderful hike

We had a wonderful hike and our tour guide Jeff was a pleasure. The landscape was breathtaking. The length of the tour was a bit shorter than expected.
