In her Words

Jennifer E.Jennifer E. ★★★★★ What a wonderful trip! This is the first "blind date" girls trip i have ever taken, and I was so glad I did. I have 4 boys, and so I often forget how women support and love each other...in an entirely different way than the male sex does! Traveling with women that I have never met was a lovely experience; one that all women should experience. Mary and Kayla meshed so well as guides...they complimented each other in every way. I am a doctor with 4 grown boys, and having 2 "Moms" that dispensed sunscreen, snacks, bandaids, hand sanitizer and more to "take care of me" was beyond lovely. FINALLY- I didn't have to be the one in control!I suspect most of you reading this review are moms, with careers, and most of you probably know how difficult it is to balance different levels of ability in your kiddos, your staff, and your daily interactions. Kayla and Mary took a complex group of women with different experiences in life, different fears, and different physical capabilities and tended to each one of us as we challenged ourselves both physically and mentally. None of us felt left behind, and our fears ended up as achievements. KUDOS to both of them!Sarah W.Sarah W. ★★★★★ The Croatia multi-activity trip was amazing! This was my second trip through Explorer Chick and it exceeded my expectations once again. Our guide Kat was organized, knowledgeable, and engaging. Each activity was so much fun but the Via Ferrara was. by far the most exciting for me! I would recommend Explorer Chick to anyone looking to do an adventure trip.Andrea N.Andrea N. ★★★★★ I just returned from the Explorer Chicks Zion Park and Bryce Canyon 4 day hiking trip and I highly recommend it! It was such a treat to be able to enjoy such beautiful nature without having to think about any of the logistics. Our tour guides, Hannah and Kayla were so personable and organized. They thought of every little detail and added so many special touches that made us feel so pampered. I loved the stunning views and the challenging (but totally doable) activities during the day. The accommodations were very comfortable. I left the tour feeling rejuvenated and recharged. It was the perfect trip! Thank you Explorer Chicks for an incredible experience that I will cherish for years to come.Christine R.Christine R. ★★★★★ I'd give 10 stars if that was an option. My hiking trip to Moab was an amazing experience. Guides, Mary and Steph took it levels above what I expected. I came home tired, educated and rejuvenated with 8 new amazing women friends.Samantha T.Samantha T. ★★★★★ A group of 6 friends joined the Zion/Bryce Hiking adventure in Utah for one friends big birthday - a first hiking trip for many of us. What a life changing adventure we had - with two incredible and thoughtful guides (Kayla and Hannah). We were blown away by the sincere thoughtfulness and consideration that our guides had for our group in addition to the outstanding experience we had in the canyon. The trip exceeded expectations and I would highly recommend Explorer Chick to anyone.Mary CMary C ★★★★★ My trip to Moab was stellar! Accommodations, activities and food were all excellent. I saw the beautiful landscape as advertised, but I actually received something even better- the bond of new friendships. Our guides Mary and Stephanie facilitated the whole trip like the pros they are. I can hardly wait for my next outing with Explorer Chicks!💕Diana M.Diana M. ★★★★★ Awesome trip to Zion and Bryce with @Kirstie and @Mary! I would have never done all this hiking on my own. Loved having some time to myself too without fussing over trip details and taking care of everyone around me.Will be back!suzanne C.suzanne C. ★★★★★ Explorer Chick is an AMAZING group!! I just completed my first Explorer Chick excursion Great Smokey Mountains, Hiking, Rafting and Glamping. Our guides Lauren and Kara were Awesome! I got to meet some new friends from all over the US. The hikes were so fulfilling, Rafting was fun, the food was great. If your up for an adventure I would highly recommend Explorer Chick! I can't wait to book my next trip.Louise M.Louise M. ★★★★★ Utah and Bryce Canyon Glamping Trip: Must do - an EPIC adventure with the most amazing guides Hannah and Kayla (aka Mom & Mom!). We really couldn’t have asked for a better vacay and would highly recommend anyone to do it! We hiked and rappelled, with incredible food, great comfy glamping tents, the most thoughtful touches (champagne and cake and a banner on my cabin for my birthday! Meditation cards and solo walks to be present). And we didn’t have to think about a thing - our guides had everything arranged including transport to the hikes and gear rental, snacks and washroom breaks (ha!). THANK YOU - we will be repeat customers for sure!Karly S.Karly S. ★★★★★ I could not have asked for a more worthwhile vacation! I have so many amazing memories that I will forever cherish on this trip. The sense of community on this trip was beautiful, and our guides (Kat & Kayla) were incredible! Honestly, I don't know how they did everything they did. They were the first ones up in the morning and the last to go to bed at night. They were always there making sure everyone was having a good time and everyone's needs were met. They worked so hard to make sure we had a good time, and they even accommodate diet restrictions (we had some vegans and GF individuals in our group) without it being a big deal, which was incredible! If you are looking for a fun adventure with other like minded ladies, this is absolutely an amazing company to book with!Rachel K.Rachel K. ★★★★★ My sister and I went to the Zion and Bryce Canyon trip with the Explorer Chicks and it was the experience of a lifetime! We had two fabulous guides (shoutout to Kayla and Kat!) who coordinated a flawless trip and made everyone feel so cared for throughout the week. They were knowledgeable about the area and so fun to hang with! They also did a great job at accommodating everyone’s dietary needs since we had several vegan/vegetarian and gluten free gals on the trip. Will definitely book with them again!Jenny P.Jenny P. ★★★★★ Just went on the Zion and Bryce Canyon trip, and it was amazing! Great hikes, great food, great glamping spot. It was awesome to get to meet the other explorer chicks. The guides Kirstie and Mary were super knowledgeable about the parks, the flowers, the rocks, the prairie dog habitats, and hiking/backpacking in general. They also looked out for us every step of the way making sure we were always hydrated and well-fed with amazing lunches and great snacks!I signed up/went on the trip by myself without knowing anyone else going on the trip, but I immediately felt welcome and comfortable on the trip! Great experience!Sarah N.Sarah N. ★★★★★ Fantastic experience. I will definitely book another adventure! Lauren and Cara are the best guides!Wendy S.Wendy S. ★★★★★ Went on the Boots and Roots Gatlinburg Hike. I was hesitant as I have never done anything like this before, or even traveled alone to a destination. Let me say I am so thrilled the I went! This experience was more than I could have imagined. So glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and did this. I now cannot wait to book another trip. Thank you, Explorer Chick for such a great experience!Norma S.Norma S. ★★★★★ This was a wonderful trip with Explorer Chicks. The guides were experienced and took great care of our group. This was s great way to experience the beauty of Utah. I enjoyed every minute. It was well planned and so worth the cost.Thank you to our guides Katie and Christina, you're the best!js_loader
