    This trip offered a blend of hiking in natural beauty along with exposure to indigenous and contemporary New Mexico culture. The experience was different from other trips that I've been on, and I enjoyed it tremendously. Although I love hiking, it felt "right" on this trip to have more varied activities. I feel that I really saw New Mexico. You know the feeling when a loved one walks in the room - your heart skipping a beat, a surge of excitement? That is how I've felt every time I spot The World Outdoors van. It doesn't matter if it is the first time on day one or the third time on day 6 - there is always a thrill.

    My New Mexico hiking exceeded my expectations, very aspect was well planned, from the food, to the accommodation, to the hikes and the restaurants. I wasn't sure what to expect or if I had taken on something that would be difficult for me to do but thanks to Sherry and Claire, I was more than capable and did things and saw sights I never thought I would. To say it was a dream come true is not far from the truth. Thank you, The World Outdoors! I understand why you have people coming back for more trips and I know that I will too.

    The trip was everything I hoped it would be. Fantastic views of the great outdoors. Good workouts, good food and people. It was very organized and fun-filled.

    The meals were superb - it was lovely to be able to eat whatever I wanted off the menu. The accommodation was always interesting / different. And, best of all the hiking - different every day, all kinds of terrain, every day a new challenge!

    Wonderful, beautiful trip!!!! Great tour leaders, great friends, great times. Couldn't be better:)

We've been told by many of our past guests that they begin with high expectations as a result of their positive experiences on previous trips with us and that we still inevitably meet or exceed those expectations. That's why you'll often see Fully Met Expectations reviews that are filled with comments more befitting of a higher rating.
