We just came back from a 3 day ATA vacation in Vermont. Both my fiancee and I had never been hiking before and this was a new adventure for us. John, the head guide of ATA, was extremely flexible and kind with all our questions and plans. We started out hiking at the Thunder Fall Trails, a novice hike with... More

I hiked, kayaked and caved with ATA for 5 days last week. It was great! I was by myself but instantly bonded with the wonderful staff and other guests. The guides are fun, funny, informative, accommodating and very helpful. The food was good. The accommodations were comfortable and charming. Vermont is beautiful. I'm thinking of a way to go back...

I am here to echo the reviews of past guests who have stated how much they enjoyed their outdoor experiences with the staff of Appalachian Trail Adventures (ATA). From hiking kayaking and spelunking, to visiting some of the local attractions and viewing the beautiful Green Mountains, each day was filled with something wonderful do and see. ATA guides, John, Leslie,... More

We just came back from a 3 day trip to Vermont where we booked hiking and other activities with Appalachian Trail Adventures. We had a GREAT time there with John and his guides! My boyfriend is quite adventurous and he was able to get more advanced hiking experiences while I could go on other trails with intermediate level guests. The... More

We had a lovely time on our mother-daughter vacation. The main draw for us was an outdoorsy trip geared to different interests and levels. John was generous in providing guides for a faster-paced and slower-paced hiker. He also allowed the younger and more athletic of our set to try white water kayaking. The guides were really amazing. We spent the... More

I had a fabulous time with ATA! I was in a group of 5 women, and very nervous that I was sorely unprepared for our adventure. I was worried about holding people back, that I would be too slow and clumsy. Not to worry with this group! Everyone is encouraged to move at their own pace and to enjoy their... More

If you are considering an all-inclusive hiking adventure, look no further than Appalachian Trail Adventures. We just came back from a 4-day adventure that was PURE PERFECTION--from the moment we were greeted by John Keough, owner and trail guide, until the moment of departure, every possible detail was attended to, and everything was run like a well-oiled machine. We signed... More

This was a perfect getaway! Went with a group of people with varying abilities. John is so well organized and knows the hiking trails so well that everyone was able to enjoy their experience. Also loved the kayaking and caving! John takes care of every detail (and there are many) so all we needed to do was enjoy our vacation.... More

Went with my mom, cousin, aunt and family friend, age range was 35-65+. I can not reccomend John and ATA enough, he and his guides were beyond accommodating to our varied hiking abilities, he also planned excellent non-hiking excursions. This was a wonderful experience, I would reccomend ATA to anyone, one of the best family trips ever, I can't wait... More
