The trip location wise was perfect. Beautiful views and campsites all great (although take flip flops as some floors pretty muddy if it's rained...which it did everyday for us!). Come rain or shine you'll have plenty to do. We absolutely loved that element to this trip. Calgary stampede was phenominal so do the 13 day trip if you can.
Slightly unsure about some timing. We felt leaving at 9:45am from campsite was just too late. We got to one location so late we couldn't do anything there but eat a late dinner. Also disappointed the wine tasting wasn't even on the schedule as advertised. As a wine lover I was really looking forward to this, so felt a little let down. Not sure why it's siddenly okay that trek leaders sleep in the van. It always smelt so bad the next morning. One personal pet peave was that our leader was a heavy smoker. So the van smelt of smoke and also it meant we had a lot of 'bathroom stops'. Slowing up the day and we'd all be sat waiting whilst cigerettes were smoked, snuffed out and then placed back in the van.
They really are our only complaints though. We felt we had to much 'faffing' time. It would have also helped if our leader encouraged politely some of the group that didn't do their daily jobs. I think it would have been nice had they helped out a little to, we basically catered for ours for 2 weeks, all cooking, washing up etc and they'd sit drinking a beer by the fire. We loved the trek otherwise (this one was number 4). The locations were spectacular.
The sad fact is that we aren't sure we will do another now. Maybe we've just outgrown it.
I would highly recommend it if you are pushed for time. As you do squash a lot in. You also meet great link minded people. In hindsight, I think we may have done it on our own.
I hope over the next few months I see past a few of these resentments and book trek number 5, but we aren't convinced yet.
