Amber is a fantastic guide! We went on a nature walk and the kids (and our pup!) loved it—by far a favorite activity when visiting Big Bear. Will definitely be booking with her again. Highly recommend! Thank you, Amber!

Amber is quite knowledgeable of plants, flora, etc. She was an excellent guide; helpful in every way. She also does jeep tours off-road, and we plan to do that upon returning to the area.

This was a perfect easy morning hike on our first full day in Big Bear. I am a very slow hiker and my family member wanted to stop and take lots of pictures. Amber was patient, attentive to our particular hiking pace, and very informative of what we were seeing. I definitely recommend this family friendly hike!

Amber’s hike took us straight into the wooded forest! Amber made stops along the way to point out different types of trees, really cool seasonal flowers and streams, a formation of climbing rocks as tall as a 3-story building, and wide expanses of the Big Bear Lake below. Amber even stopped us at some beautiful lookout points to take in the beauty, listen to the forest, and take our pictures. We had sooooo much fun on this excursion!

Amber was great. She picked the perfect spot for my kids to hike and play in the snow. Yes snow in April!! Looking forward to taking another hike in the near future.

The hike was great. We had scenic views of the Big Bear area and our tour guide Amber was super nice and informative. We also got to see the wild donkeys in the area. Great hike definitely recommend going with friends or family.

I grew up in the San Bernardino mountains and had spent a lot of time in the woods. I found Amber on Instagram and marveled at her pictures and places unfamiliar and yet familiar to me. On a recent visit home, I decided to look her up, and am so glad I did. Amber guided me to some real gems, and I ended up booking additional hikes with her. She'll be on my agenda whenever I return home and will be the highlight of the trip.

Booked a last minute hike with Amber and she was very accommodating. I've been to Big Bear many times but with the huge amount of snow I had no idea where to hike. Luckily Amber knew where to go, and it was really educational to chat with a local guide who knows all the history, plants and traffic rules of Big Bear. I learned a lot in the 90 minutes talking and walking. And the snow scenery was beautiful everywhere you look. Most importantly Amber's tours are dog friendly and I was glad to bring my dog who loves running in the snow.
