Trek in Catalina foothills. This 4-hour trek was by far the highlight of our 10 day holiday. Very well judged route was exactly hard enough to make us feel we had put effort in to the day, but not exhausted. John knew when we wanted a rest and when to press. Beautiful views. Very friendly and informative re geology, flora... More

In Tucson, staying at the JW Marriott, for Spring Break with the fam including my 2 crazy boys (8 & 10). We decided to put the boys in a 2 hr guided desert biking adventure while my husband golfed and I watched their little sis. Although I was a bit nervous at first, sending my little boys off into the... More

I was referred to Southwest Trekking by the concierge of the hotel at which I was staying with my family. I emailed the owner in advance of my arrival in the area and worked out details for a half-day hike for me alone. I am an experienced and avid hiker, so I requested a route with elevation gain and great... More

We visited Arizona for spring break with my family. The boys wanted to mountain bike, and the whole family desired to hike. Koi was our guide for both experiences. For mountain biking, he picked trails around our area the first day, and after assessing my teenage son's riding ability, the boys hit the trails. They had a wonderful experience the... More

My sister and I took a 2 hour trek from the Starr Pass JW Marriott Hotel with Dan. It was both of our first times doing mountain biking. We embarked onto a tough trail but were guided through the challenge beautifully! We both learned so much during our time on the trails and had an absolute ball! Dan provided tips,... More

We recently did a mountain bike tour with a group with lots of different experience levels. The guides were all first rate and extremely patient and always looking with safety first - always tracking where we were and communicating via radio. In short this was a highlight of my visit to Tucson thanks to this team. I'd highly recommend it!

I organised a Guided MTB Tour with Southwest Trekking and had a great time. The guide took me to a beautiful canyon in the desert, the MTB riding was great for all abilities, and when he identified that I could actually ride, he stepped it up a notch and we flew through the flowing turns, dodging the cactus. It was... More

Koi was an awesome mountain biking guide. As novice mountain bikers he took the time to teach technique & safety. He did a great job picking a trail at our level & also was knowledgeable about local plants & animals. The only bad thing was that it had to end!
