My week with ATA exceeded my high expectations. I coordinated the visit with a friend who had gone three years before and loved it. In our week long stay I enjoyed 6 hikes (mostly 5-6 hours with a shorter outing on day of departure), kayaking, massages, yoga classes, hot tub, and even a tennis lesson with an expert pro on...

I am delighted that I chose ATA for my hiking vacation in Vermont. John is much more than a hiking guide. He is a genuinely thoughtful man who takes pride in gearing each guest's holiday to their individual ambitions and needs. He has an extremely in-depth knowledge and love of the local area which means his suggestions are well considered... More

So we are a couple 50+ boomers who live on the West Coast, but our bucket list includes hiking the Appalachian Trail. What to do? So glad my internet search found John Keough's Appalachian Trail Adventures in Killington, VT. John's all-in-one trip service is so much more than hiking. Our guide Leslie was a keeper. She made each hike fun... More

We weren't really sure what to expect but it turns our we didn't need to worry. John discussed the options for the day regarding the type of hike we wanted and selected a trail that would meet those needs and concerns for our fitness level. We had three days of challenging but fun and entertaining hikes. We saw beautiful waterfalls... More

Just came back from spending a 3 day weekend with Appalachian trail adventures hiking in Vermont. What makes this outfit not your regular run of the mill hiking club is its owner and operator John . His enthusiasm, dedication and love of sport and area can rarely be matched. His unique approach to every guest guarantees that you will have... More

This tour exceeded our expectations! The mile long hike up to the cave was a really refreshing workout in a beautiful forest, including a rock scramble directly up to the cave, and the cave itself was challenging and very different than the usual. John was so friendly and accomodating, letting us pick and choose which parts of the cave we... More

John and Leslie were incredibly attentive hosts for our father/daughter hiking trip. They tailored the experience based on our interests and abilities and remained flexible as our preferences changed throughout the day. They catered to our every whim - nothing was too much for them. They chose beautiful hikes and kayaking excursions and made it incredibly easy for us. I... More

I just came back from a four-day adventure with Appalachian Trail Adventures, and I have to say the experience exceeded my expectations in every way. John and his staff of guides--Leslie and Betsy--were amazingly attentive, doing their utmost to customize the experience for each guest. And the experiences themselves were awesome, including hikes on the Appalachian trail, kayaking on local... More

Our guide John was friendly, reliable, and very knowledgeable. His company was easy to do business with and John was always professional. John ensured that we had all the equipment we needed for our adventures and he kept us safe. Can't wait to return!!
