Here’s what our customers are saying about our people and our trips.

Our customers love our trips.  Here’s what two customers said about our 14er Adventure Weekend, June 20-21, 2015.

I’m dropping you a line to let you know of the GREAT customer service exhibited by my trip guides, Willie and John. For the weekend dates of June 20-21, 2015 I participated in the “14er Adventure Weekend” with Peterson AFB Outdoor Rec. Signing up, I thought it was going to be a slightly elevated/CLEAR PATHED walk up a mountain with my good gal pal. In actual, it was the most challenging activity I’ve ever done in my (X) years of life on this earth. My fear of heights, bears, bugs, and scarring any part of my body had to be overcome in nano seconds. Although my father was in the military, I consider myself an east coast girl woman with a love/hate relationship for the Colorado outdoors. Having typed that… I have to say, I LOVED THE TRIP!!! I know! It’s crazy! At the start of the trip Willie was extremely nice and empathetic about my friend and I sitting out from the rafting trip; shame on our parents for never enforcing us to finish our summer swimming lessons as kids. I also would like to give him 4.98 stars out of 5 in his area of cooking for the trip. Now for John’s commendation: Johnathan was my personal hiking coach this trip. As mentioned before, my fear of heights, bears, bugs, and scarring any part of my body had to be overcome in nano seconds. With John’s (what seemed like at the time) sporadic words of encouragement and sprinkling of guidance on where to place my feet in the slippery points of the hike; I was able to get up and make it back down Mt. Yale only leaving a few shavings of skin, 3 ounces of tears, and breaking 3 finger nails. On a serious note, personally, no matter how frustrated and scared I was during the hike, both were focused on making this experience for me and everyone on the trip a good one. They did so by:  

  • Communicating openly and effectively about situations which led to
  • Positively influencing the performance of the trip participants
  • They provided leadership and inspiration to others and
  • Used their voice to influence and educate others on safe hiking practices.

Great customer service exhibited from this trip’s staff should not go unnoticed and should be rewarded! Please share this commendation with them and reward them in an appropriate manner. It is employees like these that make participants like me promoters for the adventure program. Their soul is definitely found in the work that they provide to trip participants. 

– Michelle, July 2015

I went on the rafting, camping, and 14er trip last week and was thoroughly pleased. There were different levels of ability from EE-LogoECED-200pxlsbeginner to advanced hikers. The guides/staff members Willie and John were encouraging and supportive to everyone in the group. They made sure that no one in the group was too far behind or ahead. You can tell they both love what they do by their great attitudes and positive outlook.

MOAB ADVENTURE WEEKEND

We attended the Moab multi-day adventure camping trip with our family. It was one of the best trips that we have ever experienced, and it will definitely go down in our memory book. Michelle and Ross were true professionals. Not only did they organize every detail perfectly, but they were always fun.

– Stephanie, February 2014
