Emily was our guide for the hike and we could not have asked a better experience. Her commentary was equal parts informative and humorous, and my boyfriend and I left with a greater appreciation for the LA area. There were also a couple of locals on the hike with us, and it was clear that even they were learning new things! We shared a ton of laughs and got some great suggestions for other stuff to do while in town. All around fantastic experience!

Matt was the perfect hike guide. He gave us plenty of historical information about Los Angeles and also good "gee wiz" facts about the city and surrounding areas. Perfect pace, considering it is a strenuous hike, with frequent breaks and even gave us bottled water and served as a photographer :-). You won't be disappointed.
