    The canoeing part of this trip was even more fun than I had thought. It was so relaxing to be on the water. I loved the birds and turtles, etc. The hikes had great views, I'm so glad I went. Even camping was fun.

    Great trip and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We look forward to our next trip with The World Outdoors!

    The highlight was the view from the top of the mountain during the South Rim hike. The extra adventure was the trial of exiting the canyon due to weather problems, but we had good guides to get us out and gave us a story to tell for years!! The food was great (home-made ice cream was a real treat!)

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.
