    Trek America commented on this review
    Many thanks for your feedback. As soon as we hear about any issues on our trips we react and try to resolve them. In the case on your Great 48 trip, once we heard of some negative feedback we acted very quickly to fix it, which it's great you recognised we did. Having been in business for 43 years and having carried thousands of very satisfied clients we are fully aware situations arise on trips and we hope to solve them in a timely manner when they do crop up from time to time.
