In her Words

Shelly B.Shelly B. ★★★★★ I did the 2024 Slovenia trip. My guide, Katie Klos-was awesome! And the trip was truly amazing! From the hut-to-hut hiking in the Alps- to the rest of trip adventures which included rafting, biking wine country, paddleboarding, hikes, delicious food and wine. Everything was planned and taken care of from start to finish and it was a grand adventure! It was my 3rd Explorer Chick trip and my favorite! HIghly Recommend!Kimberly S.Kimberly S. ★★★★★ I had a wonderful experience with Explore Chicks' trip to Quito and the Galápagos Islands. Guide Mary Caperton Morton was helpful, friendly, fun, and armed with the best snacks and facts around. We hiked, snorkeled and kayaked and saw more sea turtles, sea lions and tortoises than I had dreamed possible.Aishwarya R.Aishwarya R. ★★★★★ I recently went on the Explorer chick Peru trip (multi sport adventure) in July 2024. It was an amazing trip with a lifetime worth of memorable experiences. Our guide was Ms. Christina Bruno and every travel arrangement from Cusco sight seeing, to walking tours, visiting archeological sites, river rafting, biking, MACHU Picchu hiking and rainbow mountain trek was impeccable and curated in detail. The best part of the trip was to experience the Peruvian culture including the traditional cuisine which made the experience even more fascinating. I would highly recommend this trip to many explorer chick adventurers if they are contemplating a trip to Peru.Mara K.Mara K. ★★★★★ I highly recommend Explorer Chick! My trip to Red River Gorge was even better than I expected. Our guide, Jess, was AMAZING. She not only embodies the vision and mission of the company, but is also a great mentor for both amateurs and experienced trekkers. For me, this wasn't just a vacation, it was a life changing experience. I loved every minute!Christine P.Christine P. ★★★★★ Our guide Kirsty was amazing! Such a great experience hiking up Half DomeShelly R.Shelly R. ★★★★★ Great experience. Ashley was an incredible guide.Amanda M.Amanda M. ★★★★★ I traveled to Alaska in June 2024 and the trip truly was the trip of a lifetime. I have done group travel before with a different group and it’s clear the guides Nicole and Kirstie truly love their jobs. They were professional and had everything planned out to the smallest detail while also being fun and encouraging the whole trip!Kim H.Kim H. ★★★★★ I had an absolutely INCREDIBLE experience on a backpacking trip with Explorer Chick. Ashley was a wonderful and smart guide - perfect for beginners and backpackers that need a review. I will definitely do more trips with Explorer Chick.Megan M.Megan M. ★★★★★ Explorer Chick is incredible! I just got back from an Alaska trip with Explorer Chick (June 2024) and it was one of the greatest experiences I've had. This was my second trip with a travel group, but first with EC, and there really is something so special about the female focused aspect. Our guides Kirstie and Nicole made us feel so comfortable and safe throughout every experience and fostered such a fun and warm environment. The communication prior to and during the trip was top-notch and it's clear there is an extraordinary amount of planning and thought that went into the trip and every last detail. I'm so grateful to have been able to take this trip & to meet Nicole & Kirstie and all of the girls in the group!Dana Alonso - B.Dana Alonso - B. ★★★★★ I recently got back from the 7 day Alaska trip and I couldn’t be happier with the time I spent there. The trip was phenomenally organized and executed by our guides Kirstie and Nicole! They were absolutely amazing keeping us informed and energized the entire trip. I loved that they also participated in ALL the activities and were so encouraging to the whole team! I definitely recommend explorer chick - they are experienced and know what they are doing! Can’t wait to book another one with them☺️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.js_loader
