All guides very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. I learned a lot. This was my first workshop and I thought it was the total package.Regina C.

Had a great time, and everyone was friendly and fun as usual. Weekend was well organized, and super relaxing.John S.

This workshop was so informative, fun, and prepared my husband and I to take off on our own. We learned so much and this confirmed our desire to start backpacking. I was a little unsure and uncomfortable with it before but now I can't wait to get back out there. It was a perfect and amazing experience.Melissa T.

I liked the option of hiking at our own pace on sunday morning, not being in a hurry to get to the hostel. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much!Margie H.

I just completed a 3 day solo hike on the AT. When my friend decided not to go, I relied on the experience gained from your backpacking course to do it solo. I want to thank you for course!Carl R.

I loved what we did and where we stayed. Best guides I have ever met. Loved every minute. And they were so kind and patient teaching us stuff.Tippi M.
