Trek of a Lifetime - Perfect Western Experience

Reviewed July 2013

My boyfriend and I were extremely happy we chose this trek to start our USA adventures. Having a smaller group of just 13 on the trek was the perfect size as we all got to know each other really well and there was a great mix of personalities from various different countries. We wanted to avoid the large tour groups that you see with other companies and we made the right choice.

The tour guide was fantastic and really involved himself in group activities. He made sure we saw all the best tourist sights and delights and introduced us to some of his favourite restaurants and bars. The tour guide was very responsive to everyone's suggestions or requests for visiting places not listed on the itinerary.

We stayed at various hostels and budget motels/hotels and they were as comfortable as you needed. At the hostels we did have to stay separately in boys and girls dorms, so couples should be aware that you won't be spending each night together - but that didn't bother us as it allowed us to bond with the other travellers.

There is plenty of free time at each destination for you to go about your own things which was great to compliment any travel style.

We would do this trek again in no time (as long as we could have the same tour guide of course!)

Amazing experience, would recommend to anyone!

Reviewed February 2013

The trip was professionally organised, which gave me great confidence in the trip. It was great value for money with the tour leader worth his weight in gold. He did a great job, looked after us, made sure we did all the cool, touristy things as well as some little personal touches that made the trip unique and very special! The places visited gave a great taste for that part of the USA. I could not recommend the trip more! It was something I'm very happy I did, met great people, saw some amazing sights and will stay with me for the rest of my life! DO IT!!!

Absolutely amazing! Would definitely recommend this trip!

Reviewed January 2013

I decided to pluck up the courage to go on this trek alone and I'm so glad I did! The experience was definitely worth saving up for. The accommodation was great- we stayed mostly in budget hotels and motels with one hostel stay in San Diego. Our tour leader was awesome and was a big part of the group, always joining in and giving great ideas for things to do and places to eat. The group were really well-suited to each other and mostly wanted to do the same thing but on some days we split up and took part in different activities which all worked out well.

The trip provided a good mix of partying and seeing some great scenery. I would definitely recommend the Vegas party bus because it was just so much fun!

To sum it all up I came away with so many amazing memories and met some wonderful people so really would recommend this to anyone. There are some long drives but once you arrive to your destinations the journeys are really worth it. If you're doubting it just do it, it's the most amazing experience! :D I'd love to do another tour.

Wonderful Experience, Everyone Should Do It

Reviewed December 2012

The best trip I've done so far. By choosing to do a trip through Trek America I got to see sights I would never have seen before - it was a perfect mix of city life and outdoor trekking, seeing some of the most beautiful scenery and sights. Our Trek leader was so enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and we had a great group, all up for fun and adventure - luckily we all had a similar view of what we wanted from this holiday. The Budget Lodging was better than expected - mostly good quality motels and a couple of budget hotels and hostels along the way. I have so many good memories and friends from this trip - gosh writing this makes me want to quit everything and do it all again. A holiday worth every single penny.

Great fun, cannot wait to do another trek!

After things changed in my personal life i decided to save up and disapear for a bit and i ended up on this amazing 14 day adventure with Trek America. I braved it and went by myself. Starting the trek not knowing anyone was a little daunting, but by the time we finished the trek it felt like i had known everyone forever and had such an amazing time with everyone i definately made some firm friends. LA beaches are fab, went to my first ever baseball game in San Diego, Lake Havasu we had cook outs and went through the desert, Grand Canyon helpicopter ride cannot be described in words you have to witness this for yourself but OMG!!! What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas ;) Yosemite is breathtaking in its size and beauty, boat rides under and walks over the Goldne Gate Bridge in San Fran amazing, beach and fun fairs in Santa Cruz and shopping in beautiful Santa Barbara. This of course is only a few highlights of the whole trip i could go on and on and on, but to sum it up you would be mad not to go and enjoy this trip! FANTASTIC!

Amazing! A definitely must!

Reviewed November 2012

Facebook allowed me to connect with some of my fellow travellers before the trek got underway through the trek america facebook which was great. This definitely put me at ease travelling solo for the first time. I had a wonderful experience and am so glad I booked this trip. But from start to finish had a wonderful time. Everyone wanted to participate and our tour leader Ron showed us all the best spots, from sitting round the campfire in Yosemite to being able to say I actually hiked in the grand canyon to partying in las vegas in our own private party bus. I had an amazing time, took thousands of photos, have some wonderful memories and momentos and have made some great new friends to. Would definitely book with Trek America again.

An eye-opening experience that's made me passionate about travelling.

This trek fulfilled what I wanted out of a trip. I wanted hotel accommodation and to see a variety of places and to be with like-minded people. I was even more fortunate to go with two friends which made the experience even more amazing. This trip was a great balance of city life and partying in Vegas and San Francisco with nature and jaw-dropping scenery like the Grand Canyon and Yosemite. I 100% recommend this trip to anyone.
