    Out of this world!

    This trek is absolutely incredible. If you love hiking and out door activities this is the trek for you. Words and photographs can't do the places on this trek justice. The trip was jam packed, just the way I like it. Visiting so many natio...nal parks was fantastic. Each was so beautiful and unique. So many times on this trip I literally welled up out of sheer happiness after seeing the outstanding beauty. Accompanied by a fantastic trek leader who was very knowledgeable helped to make this trip one I will never forget! Read full review

    Awesome trip, incredible views and great people!

    Could not recommend this trip enough to people! I went by myself and could not have been made to feel more welcome and part of a group, total cliche but we started as strangers and definitely ended up as friends with an amazing shared exp...erience :-) We completely lucked out with our tour guide as well, the amazing Kayla, she was a bundle of energy from start to finish, full of great ideas, hidden gems to take us to and just generally an all round great person! I've been lucky enough to go on some great holidays in my time but I would def class this as the best, great company to go with as well, my customer care experience was great from start to finish so like I said, could recommend it enough, get booking people!!!

    Amazing, Challenging, Life Changing.

    This was my second trek, but first camping, and once again I loved it. Each of the national parks are stunning and you have so many choices on which hike you do. I had a fab group, and learnt a lot from them all. Mt Rainer is an awesome ...start to the trip with a touch hike, as the difference in altitude hits you straight away. Glacier is stunning and you get the chance to do at least 2 hikes. I even went canoeing with some of the group. The ranch stay is a welcome break and the food was amazing, especially as we didn't have to cook it. Yellowstone lived up to everything I thought it would be, especially getting to climb into the trees for a better look at Grand prismatic. And a dip in boiling river! Grand Teton & Jackson was beautiful (I didn't know what to expect). Good hikes, white water rafting and a western night out! Rocky Mountain NP represents the name of the trip well! Hiking at 12000ft is hard work! (its also cold, don't wear short shorts like I did) Telluride (Colorado) was a welcome break from hiking, and the mountain biking was so much fun. As well as an 80s party. Monument Valley was fab again, along with the forest gump stop and a detour to four corners! Grand canyon was stunning (again) do hike in if you can, even if you only go to the first stop. But take plenty of water. Zion is my fav. The narrows are difficult but stunning, with different views every corner. And angels landing didn't disappoint once again. It is a must if you can. Ending with Vegas, the perfect way to see off the end of your trip. Read full review

    Awesome trip - amazing nature and coolest people!

    Loved the trip! Itinerary is great as travel through so many places in the US and see how landscape changes. You also see some very popular places such as Grand Canyon and other, not that well known and more difficult to get to like Glacier... NP (which is amazing by the way!) 3 week trip also brings you close to your trek mates (not so much internet on the way works miracles for group dynamics haha. Don't worry there was enough internet on the way though!). We got to be very close as a group and still keep in touch, even after a few months after the trip (isn't it great? :) You'll be cooking together, so bring along recipes of your favourite dishes back home, it's so much fun when everyday you experience different cuisines! And then it becomes a journey not only through the US, but also through other languages and cultures. And it's so much fun:) Read full review
