What an incredible experience we had with Chris touring Big Bend last week. I knew he was the guy from the second I found him online and saw the reviews for him here on Tripadvisor. When we spoke on the phone, I could tell this was not going to be some canned trek around the park. He was extremely personable and laid back, someone I felt like I could hang out with. A cool breeze. He asked what we were wanting to see/do, trying to personalize our experience as much as possible. He was also very accommodating and open to whatever, a flexibility that made things feel freeform and fun. No hurry or deadlines. When we finally met up with him, he did not disappoint. Chris is authentic, the real deal. A local who loves what he does and is passionate about the park, its wildlife and is also a wealth of knowledge about the area and its history. He has lived in the area for over 20 years. Everywhere we went, someone knew him and stopped to say hello. We all instantly loved him, even the kids were interested and asking questions (they enjoyed him so much they left their own reviews here as well). It felt like you could ask him anything, it did not feel like a tour at all. One thing I would suggest is to make sure and do the 6 hour park tour. There is so much to see, time flew right by.

This is not a company, this is one man doing what he loves. I think that was the aspect we loved most. And not only did we have a truly epic day, we also made a new friend. Keep on doing what you do Chris, stay true and thank you for touching us all with your genuine kindness and a beautiful experience. One we will never forget.

My family and I did a tour with Chris today and had the most amazing time! We had never been here before and Chris’s knowledge of the area, geology, and history was outstanding! He guided us on an outstanding and beautiful tour and was very accommodating and open for anything. He is the most generous and nice guy ever and his stories and experiences had us in awe. We couldn’t have asked for anything better! Will most definitely be seeing him again next time we are here! Highly, highly recommend! Extremely grateful for him and this experience!

Chris was absolutely fantastic! He rode with us in our Jeep and we all had a great time. He was very informative and a super cool guy. He made sure we were always doing the right things and keeping us safe. He is a very sweet person and can tell he’s got a big heart, the bond we made in just 8 hours will last for a long time. I cannot wait to come back and go on some more adventures with Chris!

My husband and I had been to Big Bend several times and wanted to do a hike that we hadn't been able to do before. We hadn't done Ernst Tinaja due to the uncertainty of being able to travel Old Ore Road in our vehicle. We contacted Chris ahead of time and discussed it with him. He was very accommodating! We met at Panther Junction and he got us to the Trailhead in his vehicle, as well as guided us down the canyon. We were able to go further down the canyon than we would have done by ourselves due to his guidance and physical assistance.
He was very knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and geology. We felt totally safe and empowered! And we enjoyed his company during the ride and the hike. We felt his price was more than fair for the time and assistance he gave us.
Looking forward to using his services for future visits!
