    We had a brilliant time! The trip moves at a perfect pace, fast enough to show you a tonne of places, but with an extra night in the biggest locations so that you can actually enjoy them! I've done other trips that move too fast, nothing beats waking up in a national park and knowing you have a full day to explore as much as you can! :) Our guide Emily was phenomenal as well. Her first trip, and she handled illnesses, bug bites, washed away tents, dodgy stoves and pretty much anything else the world could throw at her. We had a brilliant group, and I can't think of a better way to see the world than with a dozen or so other people who are just as excited as you are. Definitely won't be the last trek I go on! For the locations themselves; the national parks are as gorgeous as you'd imagine, but the cities too were far more fun than I'd expected! We ended up jet boating, walking around an F1 track and going up the Olympic Stadium tower in Montreal, walking along the gorgeous waterfront in Ottawa, going up the CN Tower and trying amazing food in the markets in Toronto, and poking down all the little alleys in Quebec. Wasn't a dull stop on this trip, so highly recommended! (One tip is that the flies and mosquitos in Algonquin were beyond belief in June at least, so wrap up tightly and bring a tonne of strong bug spray! 30% deet did nothing, so go higher!)

    Having been on a Trek previously (Westerner 2 in 2012) I’m happy to say the experience is as good as ever. On paper you could argue it might be cheaper to do this on your own but in reality you would spend (and waste) a lot of time trying to find places and missing things. Dinner in the dark (a real experience – being served in the pitch black by blind waiters) is a case in point of the kind of thing you might miss, or the Cirque de Soliel in Quebec in the evening with free entry ! I think the Trek experience is really made by two things. One is the leader – a big shout to Laura – all I can say is that they work really hard behind the scenes to accommodate the group, make sure everyone has a good time and to organise the trip , taking out the hassle for everyone. Everyone else on the trip is the other key element; you get to meet lots of other interesting travellers, all there to have a good time. This for me is one of the big draws of Trek. With that said there is of course all the places you see – and the Canadian Pioneer is a good slice of Canada with most of the major cities covered, lots of options – walking, cycling, hikes in provincial parks, not to mention a decent amount of the States (Maine lobster…) thrown in! The big advantage of this particular Trek is that most of the cities are is close proximity so there is not as much travelling ‘down time’ as say some of the big cross country trips. I would definitely recommend Trek and this trip :)

    A brilliant blend of nation/provincial parks and big cities. The included wilderness canoeing was great (but quite tiring due to the wind), Free time to explore the cities was great, especially as Laura our trek leader highlighted the best local museums, and options for every taste. (BIG THANK YOU). The maid of the mist (uncluded) was an amazing experience! as was the optional dinner in the dark (Highly recommended). For those who like hiking, there's plenty of opportunity to walk round the towns/cities and lots of hikes in Acadia/algonquin (though mind the mossies who were out on force during our trip)! All in all a brilliant experience

    A great introduction to the east of Canada, going in September meant the season was starting to change and it was beautiful to see the trees in the autumn colours. The variation of cities and rural areas was great, we cramped so much into the 2weeks a huge thanks has to go to the amazing trek leader we had Kate who was amazing organising stops and activities for us, the drives were always broke up with random things from stopping at a roadside for amazing ice cream to looking around Yale university, a high school football game. We visited Toronto not my fav city but that's just me, Ottawa very pretty capital city, Montreal I loved this place, jet boating on the river and a very druken night out and not forgetting o noir an amazing dining experience where you dine in the pitch black and are served by blind waiters be brave and go for the surprise menus no idea what you are gonna be eating until you taste it, we ended up eating snails, which if I had known that was what it was I wouldn't have touched it but they were really nice again somewhere I would not have known about if it wasn't for our trek leader. Lobster catching and deep sea fishing of the coast of Maine in the pouring rain never been so cold in my life but hey we caught and then cooked our own fresh Maine lobster, I look back now and remember how cold and miserable I was that day but hey it added to the experience and I now smile about it and the lobster was amazing lol. Being woken up in the night by raccoons trying to steal bear out of the coolers and raccoons managing to unzip out tents to the point where we had to tie the zips together to stop them is a story I still tell and laugh about today Overall it was an amazing trip that I would recommend to anybody

    Great trip that shows you around the big cities of the East of Canada and USA in just a few days. The visits to the Parks are amazing, especially during the Fall, called Indian Summer. Good trip also for shopping, and visits to museums, etc. Wish it lasted just a bit longer, too many things to see in the short time that you are there! Good trip for people that like short hikes.
