My mother and I had been looking for a guided trip somewhere within driving distance (we live on the East Coast of Canada) and came across Appalachian Trail Adventures online. We booked it not knowing much about it, other than what we saw online. It was the best thing we could've done, exactly what we were looking for! The weekend we chose wasn't busy, so John and his wonderful staff were really flexible with which activities we did. We went over a weekend, so we hiked each day and did a different excursion each afternoon. Guided hiking was our main criteria, as we aren't great 'explorers'. Feel more comfortable knowing where I'm going. My mom got to kayak for the first time and LOVED it, gorgeous scenery and company. The second afternoon we went caving. I went all the way through with John, one of the coolest things I've ever done in my life! Normally I would've been terrified, it was dark and cramped, but I trusted John 100% and am so happy I followed through with it! The lodging was also great, very friendly. The food was also totally up to par, even better than I expected as there was more selection than anticipated. Not to mention that the entire area of Killington is beautiful. So all in all, a fantastic trip for both of us. We have John and his staff to thank, as it felt like we were hiking with friends, an incredible atmosphere! Also a thank you to his dog, Aeolus, for being his awesome self.
We'll be back!!
