Past Trekkers Review
Sun, cities, campfires, a canyon, mountains and Mike Tyson
First time on west coast, even though it was my fifth trek. Can see why our tour leader labelled it “west coast best cost”. Difficult to choose just one highlight, yet again. LA and Hollywood even though it was quite dingy, it was difficult to get round without uber (Three trains to Hollywood) from our starting hotel. Hotel itself was great. Walking Griffin Park to the observatory to see the sign was great. Lake Havasu camping under the stars with an amazing view, Grand Canyon watching the sunset while eating pizza, hiking there was pretty epic to. Las Vegas was an interesting place; party bus was almost as much fun as wondering the strip and casinos and bumping into Mike Tyson. The Golden Nugget Hotel was nice and had a slide though a shark/fish take. Easily impressed. Great hikes and views in Yosemite fresh air, wildlife, and is completely different to any other places on trek and is the best way to come down / recover from Vegas. San Francisco was amazing wondering the pier, strolling across the golden gate bridge, visiting Alcatraz becoming a junior ranger. Playing old school arcade games in the museum. The cable cars and trams are defiantly worth riding for the tourist factor. Area around the hotel was a let down and could have done with a little more time to explore the city. Our tour leader Lizzy was awesome even with the sassiness and puns. Oh so many. Constantly went that extra mile to make sure we got the most out of the trip and saw everything we wanted to. Trek accommodation both camping and hotels was a great balance. All were clean and nice. Can’t recommend this trek enough. Book it. Will not disappoint.
