In Her Words

PJ A.PJ A. ★★★★★ Challenging adventures full of laughter. Great leadership, thank you Lauren, and opportunities for new friendships. Meals and accommodations were perfect.Lisa J.Lisa J. ★★★★★ Went on the Alaskan adventure with Nicole B and Kayla L as our spectacular guides!! Everything was jam packed-n-top notch adventure fun. Starting off with an exhilarating hike to a few glacial lakes, to ice climbing and sea kayaking. All the event guides we encountered were superb as well. We hiked some more, saw the copper mines and many different cities, a little history, a little dart throwing and dinner. Went to the fish hatchery, saw some sea lions and learned how the salmon is bred to be the best in Alaska. The guide prepared food was excellent every detail was well thought and appreciated and I felt safe the entire trip. Would definitely go on another EC adventure again! LisaSara C.Sara C. ★★★★★ El fin del Mundo - the W Trek defies words.I joined the Patagonia W Trek in December 2023. It was the first vacation I had ever booked more than a year in advance, but as soon as Explorer Chick announced the destination and showed the pictures at a launch party in 2022, I knew I had to go.This was my first international trip with Explorer Chick, as well as my first longer trip. I was highly impressed both by the Explorer Chick guide, Christina, as well as the local guide they contracted with. My understanding is that wherever possible when hiring a local guide, they hire a woman, which I appreciate. Both were incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, organized, and supportive. We had briefings each afternoon or evening on what the next day had in store, and I learned so much about the geology and the flora and fauna.The Refugios they reserve for eating and sleeping, whether you're sleeping in a dorm room or a tent, are nice, and I was pleasantly surprised by the food.I trained for this trip and was glad I did. While you don't ever have to deal with altitude, there are some pretty intense elevation gains and the wind can add an extra element of strenuousness. This trip has the potential to test your limits, but the reward is amazing. I will never forget it.AshleyAshley ★★★★★ I went on a trip of a lifetime with Explorer Chick to Jordan. Our guide Anna did an outstanding job supporting the group on some big adventures. She always had extra water, snacks, words of encouragement, plus she takes some amazing glamour shots! What I loved most was knowing that every detail was taken care of and I could simple be in the present moment. Taking in the sights (absolutely stunning!!!), trying new foods, connecting with awesome women, and having time and space to connect with myself outside of my normal home life was such a gift!Carrie W.Carrie W. ★★★★★ I just got back from an Explorer Chick trip to Belize and had an amazing time. My guide Kirstie was absolutely phenomenal. Kirstie made sure that everyone's needs were met from something as simple as always, making sure I had ice in my water bottle (which was a huge thing for me) to making sure we had an iguana sighting. I can't say enough wonderful things about Explorer Chick. If you haven't taken a trip with them yet, what are you waiting for?Meagan S.Meagan S. ★★★★★ I went on my first Explorer Chick's trip (Belize Jungle & Island Glamping) Dec. 2nd - 10th, 2023 & it was AWESOME. We had the best guide, Kirstie. She was extremely down to earth & very personable. You can tell she is genuinely cares about Explorer Chicks & you can just tell how much love & passion she has for traveling & adventure. This trip was filled with so many activities & I'm blessed that I got to check so many things off of my bucket list. We hiked up to the top & rappel down a waterfall in the jungle (this was a a time I had to push through & challenge myself. It was worth it). We also ziplined through the jungle as well & it was so much fun. Probably one of my favorite things we did. We also explored the ATM cave, which was really interesting & a unique experience all on it's own. We spent the remainder of the week at the Southwest Caye in the Glover Reef. The island was beautiful & the staff at the basecamp were amazing. Kirstie, Wilson & the other guides were such a great team. Just like Kirstie, you can tell that the staff really genuinely cared about each one of us & went out of their way to get to know us & went above & beyond to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. I will forever be grateful for the other ladies that I was so fortunate to experience these adventures with. I'm also beyond grateful for Kirstie to being such a wonderful guide & so thankful for her encouragement & inspiration. I haven't even been home for a week since taking the trip & I'm already looking into booking my next adventure! XOXOAlleah T.Alleah T. ★★★★★ I just returned from hiking the W-Trek in Patagonia with Explorer Chick. Our guides Christina and Cata were absolutely amazing throughout our hike. The views of the snow capped mountains, lush greenery, flowing rivers, and ice blue glaciers left me speechless. This was hands down the best hiking I have ever experienced. Explorer Chick and their guides make sure that everything is taken care of. We hiked over 40 miles during the week and experienced the beautiful Torres Del Paine National park. Two of the nights we stayed in the shared dormitory style Refugio’s and two nights we had our own tent with views of the mountains right outside our tent door. This is a trip you don’t want to miss!Christie O.Christie O. ★★★★★ Back for another review! Belize with Kirstie was hands down the best trip I’ve ever taken. The entire experience set the bar crazy high for any future travel. And after taking two trips with Kirstie, I will never travel with a different guide. Explorer chicks hit the lottery when they found her.Backpacked the Grand Canyon with guide Kirstie and I can’t say enough good things. If you’re on the fence, just do it.Brook G.Brook G. ★★★★★ I had an amazing trip with this group. Kirstie was encouraging ever step of the way. Please do not hesitate to take an adventure with this amazing human! There is honestly nothing I would change about this trip.Frances BFrances B ★★★★★ I have just completed a 4day backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon. It was hard and BEAUTIFUL. I am especially thankful for our guide, Mary Morton, who is a geologist, writer and photographer. She was a wealth of knowledge about the Canyon and a fabulous guide. The stars at night were mesmerizing.Rachel H.Rachel H. ★★★★★ The Red River Gorge Backpacking Trip was an incredible weekend trip. I learned a lot of skills to make me more ready to experience backpacking, saw beautiful scenary at the Gorge, met wonderful people and worked with a truly wonderful guide. Would definitely recommencd the trip.Christine Cavanaugh J.Christine Cavanaugh J. ★★★★★ What an awesome experience. Lauren and Hannah were so knowledgable about Zion and Bryce. In addition, both guides were super accommodating in looking after all of our needs. They went above and beyond to make our trip extra special.js_loader
