Aaron put together a trip for myself and three friends to the Sierra Gorda in Feb 2017. We were all delighted with the trip. He is very knowledgeable and was flexible in accommodating our needs and interests. He provided a comfortable car and handled the large amount of driving. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
