Rob is more than a guide and coach, he is an adventure travel guru of the highest form. I was blown away by our adventure to Machu Picchu in Peru. Rob was not only knowledgable of the area, it's history and it's flora and fauna, he was a storyteller extraordinaire, capable of creating a fully immersive experience that brought the ancient culture and myths of this incredible place to life. It was like being there during the time of the Inca's and seeing the world through their eyes. Highly recommend Rob for any travels and coaching.
"Rob is one of the best thinkers and strategists I’ve ever met. His ability to dream big and then execute a plan with precision and grit is rare in the world."
I worked with Rob for several months last year, following a career transition. Rob helped me uncover my lower energy state, and how I unconsciously used 'push/pull' tactics to navigate my professional and personal life. Through Rob's coaching, I am now more mindful of the 'power' available through living an authentic life, and being guided by more heart, less head. Using a gentle, yet professional approach, Rob delivers great results.
Rob is an amazing guide- with some amazing talents. Our trip through Peru was second to none- he turned what was going to be a holiday into a trip of a lifetime which we will never forget. Looking forward to many more life-changing adventures through Awakened Adventures.
"Rob has a unique ability to help you shift your perspective to see new possibilities in what seemed like challenging circumstances. I would not have accomplished what I did so quickly without Rob’s unconditional support every step of the way. After working with Rob, my perspective on life has been transformed into one full of opportunities for growth and fulfillment. I have newfound confidence in myself and am living life from a place of abundance, love and joy."
Rob is an exemplary coach. His easy-going, laid back style provides an immediate environment of openness and trust. Rob has the unique ability to listen to what is being said, and ask questions from a perspective that opens a different lens in which to view a situation, expanding possibilities I had never thought of. Rob, through thoughtful conversation, has helped me to uncover barriers I did not know that I had, and helped me to discover more potential than I thought existed. Thanks to Rob’s guidance, wisdom and compassion, I can get out of my own way and see life as possibilities rather than limitations. Rob is a truly gifted coach.
I worked with Rob as our coach for the Patagonia Expedition Race. Rob was an invaluable asset in getting us to the start line as he repeatedly went above and beyond the spirit of the engagement to become an integral part of our team. Every interaction with Rob was stellar. He is an incredible spirit with an amazing can do and live life to its fullest attitude. I can’t thank Rob enough for his inspiration, expertise, and his innate ability to make the journey exciting and fun.
My husband and I embarked on what we expected to be a challenging and terrific trek along the Inca Road in Peru. Little did we know it was to become so much more. It became an enlightened journey of a lifetime. Following in the footsteps of the Chasqui Runners to the ruins of Choquequirao and Machu Picchu was life changing. Rob’s knowledge of the mountains gave me confidence to face each day. Through his encouragement he helped me to embrace the incredible natural beauty and atmosphere of these ancient paths, allowing me to remember what’s truly important in life. Thanks for the amazing experience, I can’t wait to do it again.
We enlisted Rob to coach and prepare us for the Patagonia Expedition Race. In a matter of a few days (with extensive organization and planning, all on his part), he turned a bunch of pretty lame triathletes into adventure racers who could navigate earth and water with map and compass, ascend and rappel cliffs, and sea kayak (while navigating). This was no easy task because we are all very busy professionals that had no time for such training but he got it done and passed all our required certifications. We then went down and did our best at the Patagonia Expedition Race and surprisingly came back alive. I recommend Rob without reservation for training/organizing such monumental excursions even if you are way out of your league. He will get you where you need to be. Just sign up and do it...
Rob has a very deep passion and knowledge of the mountains. His passion is contagious and has a deep connection to the land, the people, to nature and understanding its ancient wisdom which makes his journeys, not just any hike, but a sacred experience, connecting deeply with the energies of each place.
"Rob is a master of his craft. He adds another dimension to the word travel- bringing not only his expertise and knowledge but also his positive and contagious outlook on life. After being privileged to have Rob as our Guide in Peru- I have come away feeling inspired and motivated to connect with myself, people and the earth- in a way I didn't think was possible. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone wanting to have a 'real' travel experience and transformation, rather then just a holiday."
Thanks to Rob Harsh, the ultimate guide, we had the adventure of a lifetime trekking in Peru from Choquequirao to Machu Picchu. Rob is an amazing person to spend time with, experienced in trekking and guiding with incredible knowledge of the history, culture, nature and people of Peru. Rob built great relationships with the whole group and was an inspiration to us all. I would thoroughly recommend joining Rob on any trip and trusting that you too will have an amazing adventure. I am certainly hoping I will get this opportunity again soon!
