Here are some of our reviews:

“We spent a week hiking and visiting Anasazi sites in the Four Corners area. Our guide on Canyons of the Ancients was perfect, patiently explaining the basics, but also enriching and extending the knowledge of the well informed members of the group. She was sensitive to the needs of our diverse group AND she kept us laughing!” ~ Joel G.
 
“Our guide is an amazing person, she lives, breathes, and shares her bountiful knowledge of the Ancient Puebloan history so that you practically feel lost in the period. The resources at her disposal, archaeologists, museums, parks and first hand knowledge of the local area is unparalleled. I can’t wait to come back for another trip.” ~Morgan H.
 
“Hiking through the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument is fun and beautiful. However, hiking under the guidance and with the experience of our guide from SCCA provided a very rich and interesting contextual experience that one should not miss. There are so many questions surrounding the living of the Puebloans at the time, their cultures and their exodus that our guide was able to address and enrich with her archaeological background, that our time with her was really extraordinary. I am grateful for her knowledge, enthusiasm and engagement to make our visit even more memorable and truly worth a return visit in the future.” ~ frg0125
