Atlantic Dream

Atlantic Dream was a dream come true!

Reviewed August 2019

Being a solo traveller I was keen for some adventure but I also wanted to find a gang. The Atlantic Dream offered the perfect itinerary for what I was after & the thought of camping plus a smaller group really excited me.
I was lucky enough to have an amazing group & we became fast friends. Cohesion was no problem so our team work was evident from the start which is really important with campsites/cooking/chores etc. camping was great fun! We also stayed in hotels & airbnb in Orlando due to the heat, it was great.
Being a small group, everyone really bonded & there was a sense of family within the gang which was nice. We spent alot of quality time together & it was great getting to know everyone & becoming friends plus sharing incredible experiences together. We made memories that we won’t forget!

Our tour leader Taylor was one of the greatest people I have been lucky enough to meet and hang out with - he is now a friend for life. He was knowledgeable, hilarious & always up for a good time. We spent alot of time together in the van & around the cities & he was the best tour leader I ever could have expected. He took us around even on his days off & we really appreciated all the efforts he put in for us. Even after a long drive day he would be tired but always happy to help us if we needed anything. We were really lucky to have Taylor around.

The trip itself was unreal! It was moderately fast paced but I felt we had enough time in each city. I absolutely loved the white water rafting! Nashville was so much fun, we danced the night away. It was a great city to explore with the rich country music history. New Orleans was beautiful, it was everything i hoped it would be! I loved getting lost in the beautiful French Quarter, I cannot wait to get back there. Universal Studios was one of the funnest days of my life!!

The food in the south needs to be experienced, it was delicious. The scenery on our drives was amazing so being in the van for hours wasn’t a bad thing, in all honesty you need the rest time from all the walking & exploring that is packed in.

I would highly recommend this trip, it was a dream. I want to do it all over again!

If you are thinking of doing it, do it. It’s as simple as that. It suparsted my expectations in every way: the people, the places and the experiences.

Every place you go to is different and amazing in its on way (Nashville, Zion, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas were my favourites), you will walk away with the best memories and stories.

Also do it from New York to LA, that way you gain time going through all the time zones. Whereas you will lose it the other way, meaning even earlier starts and less time in all the amazing places.

Time of my life!!!

This was honestly the best month of my life! I met great people who I will know for life, I saw amazing sights, I had a fantastic tour guide. Can't fault the trip at all! It's the perfect length of time to give you a pod feel for America.

A combination of History, Music and Sun - winning!

Reviewed August 2019

This is by far the best tour I have done so far; the way it is set up you get to experience 3 completely different parts of America in 2 weeks which I think makes this trip so good.

Starting in new York, Philly and Washington we experienced American History and the early American architecture, which was beautiful in it's own right.

Then as we made it through the Virginia mountains you make it to the Deep South, where culture and music is rife, as well as the food, man the food is good.

Towards the end of the trip moving into Florida, chilling at the beach (watch out for sun burn even in May!) and visiting Universal Studios was a really great way to end the trip, and some downtime as a group in Miami 'celebrating' our Trek was the best way to end the trip.

All in all great fun and would hugely recommend to anyone who wants to see more than just the 'classic' tourist spots!

Atlantic Dream

A life changing experience I’ll treasure forever

Reviewed July 2019

I can’t even begin to put into words how incredible this trip was. Before the trip even began our group had all found each other on social media, so had been talking for a few months. When we finally met in Newark, it was like we’d always known each other. Our tour leader was Taylor and right from the first meeting he clicked with our group and what followed was nothing short of a trip of a lifetime.
Philly and Washington DC were both interesting, though for our group we felt like half a day in Philly would have been more beneficial - to see the Rocky Steps and then to get a Cheesesteak, we could have given Independence Hall a miss, but that was just our group! DC was amazing, and the Bike’n’Roll guide was great - the heat can be a bit much at times though so take water! The museums in DC were all free, and all amazing, but we wish that we’d have had an extra day to explore all of them!
Shenandoah was STUNNING and the hike up to Stony Man was gorgeous. We had to alter our itinerary slightly to accommodate whitewater rafting as Occoee was booked up, but Taylor took us to Adventures on the Gorge in WV and we all had an absolute blast.
Nashville and New Orleans were highlights for most of our group - Nashville was unreal and we wish we could have stayed longer! Memphis was interesting, and the Civil Rights Museum is a must if you’re in Memphis - Graceland was awesome and well worth paying extra money to see the cars and outfits. New Orleans was crazy and the vibe from the French Quarter is unlike anything else. If you get the chance, get Beignets from Cafe du Monde - they are hands down the best in the city!
We stayed in a place called Navarre instead of staying in Destin, and the beach was beautiful! Destin boardwalk was interesting, but most of us were pleased we stayed out of Destin!
For Orlando, our group chose to stay in an Airbnb rather than camping, so we all paid money for that. Most of us chose to go to Universal Studios and we had the best time smashing through as many rides as we could - Taylor came with us to Universal and we had the best day!
The drive to Miami was stressful for traffic reasons, but Miami Beach itself is beautiful. Most people flew home the next day so we had one last group meal out with Taylor before we all said our goodbyes. Saying goodbye to everyone was hard, but I’ve made lifelong friends on this trip, and it’s been an experience I’ll never forget!
Taylor made the whole trip as enjoyable as he possibly could and he’s become a friend to us all. We all bonded during the two weeks we were on the road and I shared this experience with some incredible people. I have 0 regrets about booking this trip, and there was never a day that I felt was wasted. I had the absolute time of my life, and I can’t wait to do another trip!

Glaciers and Grizzlies Plus

Amazing experience, scenery and activities

Reviewed July 2019

Glaciers and Grizzlies is an excellent introduction to western Canada; you visit all of the iconic national parks such as Jasper and Banff, and sights such as Lake Louise and the Icefields Parkway. The trip is fast paced and action packed, you see and do so much in the 11 days! The activities on offer are excellent, such as rafting in Jasper, the Athabasca glacier walk, helicopter ride and zip lining - I would definitely recommend doing as many of the activities as you can, as Trek America have tried and tested them all and they are really brilliant companies and experiences! Our tour guide, Jen, was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable, she gave us so much insight into the local area and wildlife, and recommended some excellent hiking, such as the hike that we did at Lake Louise!
The accommodation was of a really high standard, especially in Banff; good location for going into town in the evening and the views of the surrounding area are amazing.
Overall this trip is absolutely amazing, the accommodation was great, itinerary was well planned and our tour guide went above and beyond for the group!

Amazing trek to get a taste of the south. Each state was incredible and gave something completely different and the tour leaders too things to the next level everywhere we went. Incredible.

Mountain Trail

Amazing trip, with so many great locations

From sleeping under the stars in Monument Valley to the lights of Vegas, this trip offers so much. Wildlife of Yellowstone, rodeos in Jackson, sunrises and sunsets over the most amazing landscapes, the list goes on. Stop thinking about it and just book it!

Canadian Rockies Plus

Breathtaking views, turquoise lakes, full of adventure & lots of perspective

Reviewed July 2019

The Canadian BLT was incredible. The western side of Canada is breathtaking. I have never seen so many beautiful lakes and massive mountains. The whole time you are surrounded by picture postcard views, my photos don't even do the trip justice. The trip had something for everyone. Each time you travel your eyes will just be glued to the window as you admire the ever changing scenery. I had so much fun, there was so much to see and do. The accommodation was good and we even stayed in some wooden cabins and cooked outside as a group for a few nights in Wells Gray. I did some challenging but rewarding hikes which gave me the biggest amount of perspective on the world. We saw black bears, grizzly bears (and thier adorable cubs), Moose, Elk, Deer, mountain goats and a Coyote! Whistler, Jasper and Banff are the most serene little towns with so much life and energy. Whistler was full of adventure - a great place to visit all year round. We went Zip lining at 2,400ft in-between mountains and it was a once in a life time experience - would recommend to anyone who loves a bit of a thrill. Jasper was full of character and surrounded by the most insane views of the Rocky Mountains. Banff was just wonderful, great food, great nightlife, all round great vibes and so so much to do. We were in Banff for Canada day and the celebrations were huge. We hiked Sulphur Mountain (10/10 views - a must do!) and ended our Canada day celebrations by going out to the Dancing Sasquatch nightclub - so much fun! We also had a trip through the Rocky Mountains by helicopter which was the coolest thing I have ever done. We landed in the middle of the mountains and went on a hike and celebrated with champagne - an indescribable experience. Lake Louise was even prettier in person never mind on instagram! If you are considering this tour then book it. The accommodation was nice, the tour was action packed and there was plenty of chances to do your own thing - adventurous or not. Our leader Alex was loads of fun and really knowledgeable. I met some lovely likeminded people and really can't fault anything about this trip. I can't wait to visit Canada again.

Canadian Pioneer

A good intro to USA + Canada

Reviewed July 2019

As someone who only recently started travelling and is very much a city boy, but with deep love for nature, I think this trip has the right amount of both and I've never felt uncomfortable throughout the whole trip.

Everyone I met along the trip was super friendly and accommodating, and camping was a breeze. Got the chance too see some Moose, plenty of squirrels, eat 3 kinds of poutine, go on a canoe trip with the most gorgeous weather I've ever seen outside of Portugal, and a chance to see puffins, whales and seals up close. Waking up at 6AM might be tough at first but it's worth to hike a trail in the early morning. Niagara falls is always a must see whenever you're in this part of the USA/Canada. Less enjoyable part? Mosquitos. Be prepared.

The cities are very different from Portugal (no actual skyscrapers here) but I've never felt overwhelmed by their sheer size and surprisingly easy to walk the streets. Best part? No Mosquitos. Be prepared.

In summary, it's very good, really enjoyable, no stress, plenty of time to look around and explore and discover just a hint of how Canada and the USA really are.
