Our family’s experience was nothing short of amazing! "Slim" provided a perspective we would have never been able to get on our own and we learned so much. Her passion for the Canyon and what she does came through too, which made our time something we’ll never forget!”
The guides were awesome – so educational and patient!!! Encouraging & helpful in every way. Such an amazing first visit to the canyon – Life changing to have experienced the GC up close & personal… Thank you so much!”
I've brought many School groups to the Field Institute and the quality of instruction provides them with an understanding of American Indian cultures, diverse ecology, and geologic history. Students leave with a stronger sense of self confidence, an intimate connection to nature, and memories that will last a lifetime.”
Top to bottom, the Institute exceeded all of my expectations .... they ensured we packed wisely for our trip and saved me from lugging around 5 lbs junk I didn't need. Overall, it's packed with value that I don't think commercial outfitters would provide, and delivered a deeply rich experience.”
