"Top Outfitter"-Travel + Leisure Magazine
Travel + Leisure created a directory of standout specialists for seven types of getaways ranging from safaris to biking tours. Ryder-Walker made T+L’s distinctive list of adventure outfitters for the trekking and walking category.
What's more, T+L only listed seven top-shelf travel companies for trekking and walking (compared to 11 companies for “Local Culture”) and we made the cut. Put another way, T+L named Ryder-Walker one of the TOP SEVEN travel companies for hiking!
"Best Adventure Travel Company on Earth," Two Years In A Row!
National Geographic ADVENTURE Magazine surveyed more than 200 outfitters and travel companies for their feature, "Best Outfitters on Earth." They categorized each outfitter based on their specialty, (ours was hiking and trekking), and then scored them based on various categories including education, high adventure, level of service, client references, and sustainability.
Our high overall scores, in every category, landed us within the top ten best hiking and trekking outfitters on the planet-two years in a row! We received the highest scores in Quality of Service, Spirit of Adventure, and Client Satisfaction.
