Mark was an INCREDIBLE guide for our sunset hike! We hiked with our 4yr old daughter and my 7yr old nephew and he was incredibly kind, patient, and encouraging to them. We were picked up in a very nice Lincoln Navigator complete with hand sanitizer and Lysol spray readily available. Mark is great with communication. He always responded to every email and even sent me information on his own. We all felt very prepared because of Mark. We had not been on a hike like this and were nervous, but left feeling amazing and so accomplished! We loved that Mark knew about the different wild life on the hike. He had us stop at different times and encouraged us to drink water. The view at the top is SECOND TO NONE! It was incredible!!!! Worth every step! He brought snacks (and even Twizzlers knowing we had our children). Mark was patient with my 4yr old daughter who wanted to hike and then get in my carrier. He never made us feel like a burden or that he was inconvenienced. He involved our children in so many things and made them feel so special. I personally was nervous about the way back, knowing it was going to be pitch black. Mark had us all set up accordingly! He provided us with hand lamps, head lamps, and a walking sticks for every single person in our party (6). Everything lit up the trail beautifully! We were so amazed and NOT afraid at all! We enjoyed every single second of this excursion and would recommend this to every single person! Thank you Mark for such a great experience! We will never forget a second of this Sunset Hike excursion!
