Amazing!!! Grant and Corey were fabulous guides and our family had the best vacation of our lives. My eight year old son can’t stop talking about it! The best part was being present with my family in nature – no iPADS, or video games – truly a rare opportunity to reconnect.
We had a fantastic vacation that exceeded expectations. The Yellowstone Family trip forced us to do activities that we would never have done on our own; all while laughing and having fun. We had exceptional guides that were professional, but also fun and nice company. The trip was a great bonding experience that created very happy memories. We want to book another trip for next year.
I celebrated my 40th birthday week with Austin Adventures, bringing two friends along and it was such a fun and memorable trip! We had awesome guides and our group of 16 was just a perfect mix of hilarious personalities that made the trip even better. I could not have asked for a better first experience with Austin Adventures and Montana 🙂
The Guides were fantastic! They were very knowledgable, organized and enthusiastic. They added so much to the trip because they knew the places to go that weren’t packed with tourists. They were flexible and nothing rattled them. We were a big group to deal with and they made it seem easy. They had great chemistry which is super helpful when they\’re part of the group every day. They even joined our Game of Thrones costume night and won the prize for best costumes! The accommodations were good and the food was very good. And the Canadian Rockies are spectacular! The Guides genuinely cared about us having fun. They had worked hard to get us reservations at a hotel in Banff on Sat night so we wouldn’t have to switch hotels.
Professional, luxurious, fun, challenging. A trip of a lifetime, not only because of the beautiful place but because of the amazing guides. Every detail was taken care of, with such a degree of care.
Our whole family was blown away by the trip. It totally exceeded our expectations.
This was the first time I have ever gone on a vacation by myself. I’ve always wanted to see Yellowstone but for years trying to get family or friends to go always fell through. Looking through a magazine I got the idea of an adventure vacation where I could be with a group. I am so glad I found Austin Adventures!!! I work in an industry where the little details are key. It’s so nice to find another company that thinks the same way. Everyone I came in contact with or talked to on the phone couldn’t have been nicer. Every possible detail was thought through and planned out. Every time I turned around there was some other surprise that shows that Austin Adventures likes to take customer service to the next level! Who else is going to make you creme brûlée out on a trail!! Andy and Sylvie were amazing! They were informative, but also a bunch of fun making us laugh throughout the trip. Anything we needed they were prepared. They made a 4 hour diversion to avoid forest fires seem like it was part of the plan and actually one of my favorite days of the trip. What I like best was they treated us like family and that is what sets Austin Adventures apart from everyone else!! I thought it was super sweet that my guides sent a postcard to greet me when I got back home and that Austin Adventures cared enough to send me a card on my birthday!
Thank you, Austin Adventures! We had heard good things from our friends who had traveled with you, but our experience was beyond anything we imagined! Our kids were over the moon about how much fun they had, and my husband and I were equally impressed. The best part was that we didn’t have to do anything other than to enjoy ourselves! It was such a luxury to have everything taken care of; all we had to do was show up, and the rest was taken care of! Our guides, Corey, Grant, and Emma were beyond amazing, and they were always bending over backward to take care of every detail. And they were always full of surprises, including ice cold coffees & fresh cut fruit in the middle of nowhere on a strenuous hike, just when we needed a treat — where did they stash that? They were so much fun to hang out with too, so that was an extra bonus we did not expect! We bonded with the other families, so it was incredibly difficult to see our Austin Adventure week come to a close! We are so looking forward to our next adventure!
I had never been on an “adventure” trip like this, so wasn’t sure what to expect. I am not an experienced bike rider and opted for the motorized bike. So glad I did..I could not have done it without that benefit. Our guides, Axel and Veronique were so encouraging and never judgmental. Always helpful and friendly. I learned so much from both of them. The food, accommodations, tours everything was a dream come true! It has ruined me for any other trip I will ever take. First class all the way!
There was never a moment when we wished we were doing something else. Best Family Vacation Ever!
Beautifully and thoughtfully planned out the trip with all details considered. Wonderful trip guides. We could not have been more delighted.
We did so much in our 10 day trip to Ecuador – we could never have done so much without the careful planning and thoughtful itinerary together by Austin Adventures.
I really really liked it and I loved seeing a part of the world that I have never been before. With Austin, it’s never just seeing a cool place it’s truly experiencing it and I think that is the best part.
Katie and Emily did a fantastic job leading us, driving and keeping us on time and at all our destinations. They provided fabulous treats on the trail… the juicy pineapple presented with garnish on the hot dusty trail in Bryce Canyon, then the chocolate birthday cake with sliced strawberries and whipped cream on top of Angels Landing were”over the top” trail delights. They were fantastic guides and cheerful and competent. Also the progression of and variety of the hikes (and bikes) were well planned. I loved the trip.
Death Valley was a fantastic addition to the Austin Adventures portfolio. It should be on everyone’s bucket list.
I was surprised and impressed of the quality of this tour. This was my first Austin adventure and I am certainly recommending it to everyone I know… Our guide Marko was well prepared and very professional, he loves his country and showed us much more than its incredible beautiful places.
Excellent. Our guides were great and always on pointe. The whole family is still raving about the trip to Glacier. Will definitely plan another trip soon!
