In Her Words

Kim T.Kim T. ★★★★★ This is my FIFTH Explorer Chick Adventure and am completely amazed with the experience!! The Grand Canyon was beautiful and our guide, Kirstie made sure we had a wonderful experience. I was encouraged the entire way by Kirstie and our fellow amazing women in the group. Cannot say enough great things about this experience!Christie O.Christie O. ★★★★★ Backpacked the Grand Canyon with guide Kirstie and I can’t say enough good things. If you’re on the fence, just do it.Tricia K.Tricia K. ★★★★★ It’s been one week since returning home from the 4-day Grand Canyon backpack trip. I cannot stop smiling and thinking about the experiences and learnings. If you are on the fence whether to go on this trip; I encourage you to do it. Proper training, preparation, a positive mindset, and an Explorer Chick expert is the key to a once in a lifetime experience.There are not enough stars in the Grand Canyon night sky to rate our Explorer Chick Guide, Kirstie. She’s like a Swiss-Army multi-tool and has truly amazing skills. Knows every inch of the canyon; took amazing care of the four of us (spoiled); kept our spirits high; full of surprises; she’s a been around the world; would go with her anywhere kind of Chick. I love how she is a steward of the land we were fortunate to experience. Oh, and the food! Amazing. We struck the lottery with Kirstie. True admiration for this Woman. Badass tough, period.I went on the trip with my friend and met two other Chicks we never met before. The four of us and Kirstie were a great fit and encouraged each other the entire time. I’m 50 years old and look forward to the next Explorer Chick adventure!Was it tough at times? Absolutely.Did I ever doubt myself or worry? Yep.Would I do this again? 100%.#EasyDoesntChangeYou!Forever Grateful and no regrets.LJ OLJ O ★★★★★ I had an amazing experience with explorer chick on a backpacking trip to the grand canyon. We felt like we won the lottery getting Kirstie as our guide. If I could give her 10 stars I would! She was so encouraging, patient and helpful on the trip. I didn’t realize the extent of what she would be doing for us on the trip and was very pleasantly surprised by her setting up our camp and cooking us warm meals after long days on the trail. She always had a fun surprise in her bag of tricks and I enjoyed her company thoroughly. While on the trail she would tell us about the plants and the animals that live in the area and I ended up learning a bunch of cool stuff. The trail itself was strenuous (as explorer chick described) and I was lucky to have an amazing group of ladies alongside me. I went in not knowing anyone and came out of the canyon with friends! I felt explorer chick did a great job with the packing list and felt like I was prepared as far as gear went. I will definitely do another trip with explorer chick and fingers crossed with Kirstie!Amelia W.Amelia W. ★★★★★ Grand Canyon South Rim was an amazing trip! Kirstie was a phenomenal guide, she exceeded expectations at every turn. Who brings a fresh avocado, charcuterie board, fresh veggies, hummus to the bottom of the grand canyon? Kirstie does!!! Truly a great trip from start to finish. I will be doing more and loved meeting fellow women all with my adventure spirit. Sign up now!!!Sheila H.Sheila H. ★★★★★ Backpacking in the Grand Canyon with Savannah, Explorer Chick guide, exceeded any expectations I had. I love hiking, but had never backpacked. That was a bit unnerving, until I met Savannah. Her confidence, poise, demeanor, knowledge of the Grand Canyon, meal choices, and extensive backpacking experience put me at ease. All I had to do was carry my pack and enjoy the experience. If you like to hike, backpacking in the GC will not disappoint!! Hiking amongst 2 billion year old rock so deep in the belly of the earth, surrounded by color, sounds of wildlife and raging rapids, creeks, and interesting flora. I cannot wait to go back!! Thank you, Savannah, for your instruction!! I didn’t know if I could do this. Now I do. And it feels good!ElizabethElizabeth ★★★★★ I had an amazing time backpacking in the Grand Canyon with explorer chick this weekend! It’s a very physically and mentally difficult trip (as EC will tell you) but my guide savannah was incredibly supportive every step of the way to get us through itjs_loader
