“On this trip the guides were the difference. They were attentive, extremely knowledgeable and saw to it that we saw and did much more than we could have on our own.”
“Once again, Natural Habitat filled all my expectations. I was particularly interested in wildflower photography and it exceeded my expectations. The choice of hotels and meals and the quality of the guide made the trip both enjoyable and a good learning experience.”
"Melissa was extremely attentive, prepared, and thoughtful. We were all impressed by how much she managed to juggle during the trip. Her prepared lunches, advance preparations for restaurants, lodging and transportation, all made everything go very smoothly and seamlessly. The days were extremely well-planned. Her extensive knowledge of and love for the park and the area were apparent. She always had interesting stories, comments, and shared her broad knowledge base in an accessible and interesting way. In addition to taking care of the big things, there were several little individual touches she added that made the trip more memorable and fun. She was always cheerful and pleasant and made the mood of the trip very positive. In addition, I have to give her special praise because she knew that I was interested in doing some hiking that was a bit more challenging than what was planned for the rest of the group. Without me asking her to, she arranged for another guide from the local company to take me on a separate hike while she led the rest of the group! I was really excited by this unexpected opportunity and I think it's a testament to how much care and attention she puts into making sure each of her guests is having the best experience possible."
"All of the adventures were great. Every detail was taken care of and I enjoyed all of the new friendships that I made. This was truly an adventure I will never forget."
"Our guide was very knowledgeable about the park, gracious and personal and attentive in working with all of the members of the group to make the tour the best possible experience for everyone!"
“I have been doing nature trips for nearly 20 years, and I can honestly say Melissa is one of my top guides. She knows EVERYTHING! And, in addition is a wonderful person.”
"Melissa was fantastic! Her knowledge of the park and its history, plus the various forms of plants and animals was beyond anything I could have ever hoped for. I went expecting to see some beautiful country and a wide variety of wildlife -- what I received was so much more. This experience has pretty much made me only want to go on NatHab trips in the future."
“The trip was wonderful – the only bad part was leaving a place that we had grown to love and our new friends.”
"The trip was well planned and executed. When unexpected things occurred (e.g. moose turning up unexpectedly), adaptations were quickly and easily made. The activities we had gave us a wonderful experience in a wonderful place."
"Both leaders were exceptional. I take many trips and these were 2 of the best guides/leaders that I have ever had. They were really so professional, fun, and took great care of us. This for me was an outstanding trip, and I think that all of our group felt the same way."
"This was my second time on this trip with Melissa. As before, she was beyond fantastic in every category imaginable! Her assistant, Jen was terrific! She has knowledgeable, energetic, fun to be with and she and Melissa worked seamlessly to make the trip perfect! I cannot think of one aspect of the trip that I would change......"

“I simply don’t have the words to express how professional, helpful, environmentally conscious, knowledgeable, gracious, attentive, unstinting, interesting and fun Amy is as a guide. Such a comprehensive knowledge and deep love of Glacier National Park. Such a great attitude. Such awareness of each and every traveler’s situation, interests and needs. I loved it!”
