    Good first backpacking experience, but not perfect. First things, I was 21 when I did this trip, it was my first time going to the US, first time travelling alone and first time going abroad for more than 2 weeks! So of course it was a nice first experience! Since then I have travelled solo in Southeast Asia, South America and lived in Australia for a year, so now I wouldn't do a trekamerica again because I think I am quite an independent person, and I know group tours are always more expensive than if you do it yourself, and they have little flexibility. But I think if you have never travelled and want someone to hold your hand this is not a bad starting point. My favourite places were the national parks, this was when it was best to camp. Florida Keys was nice, also Miami, but we didn't stay enough time in most places. My group wasnt the best, in my opinion this is the biggest gamble you take, you pay alot of money and you never know what kind of people you will get. In my group there was a kind of half and half divide, I thought I was in the 'normal' half, we just wanted to enjoy, get along, but the others were weird/immature/boring or just didn't want to mix with the others. We had a few people not interested in drinking or partying. No problem, I have friends who dont drink but are really fun people. But these people were boring and pretty uptight. Surely they knew what kind of tour this was, its like they joined the wrong trip. One of these people, a woman around 38, told us as we were driving to Grand Canyon that she "went before and its overrated". Well thanks for that! So it is really hit and miss, I would recommend to try to take a friend with you. Sometimes the camping aspect was nice, it suited the national parks. But in other places it was unnecessary. When you are moving nearly every other day, you don't want to be putting up and taking down tents, as well as getting the camp stove out and prepare and cook food for 12 people. This part was definitely too much effort, half the time I would have preferred to just buy a take away pizza just so I could have more time to relax (some others agreed). I rarely had breakfast, it was only cereal and maybe some apples and bananas. Many many times people were buying food at the gas station stops, nibbles like crisps and drinks. The food we made for lunch, dinner was not sufficient in my opinion. We shouldnt have to buy as many snacks as we did. I remember for lunches, sometimes we would go food shopping (huge pain in the ---), and we would find some public areas or, one time, we set up a table in a parking lot. That felt embarrassing. Nearly every day was wraps with meat, spinach, tomatoes etc. Always wraps. The whole process of buying food, packing it in the van, making lunch and tidying up was laborious and again I would have preferred to just buy a sandwich in the supermarket then go. Also with camping, most of the sites are not close to anything, so you are pretty much stranded for the night. For example in Florida Keys we camped, it rained really bad one night and half of my sleeping bag was soaked. I had to go out in the middle of the storm to fix the tent because the outer layer was touching the inner layer. I would have preferred to take my own teny in this case. Also, Florida Keys is a nice little place but we stayed on the outside of it. We did go out one night but then youre always with the group because you need to somehow get back. In these incidences, I would have preferred to pay a little more just to stay in a hostel and have some comfort and be close to things. The insult for me was on the last morning we had to clean out all the dirty cool boxes! And the tour leader called it a 'cleaning party'! After paying so much money I do NOT expect to clean boxes after the trip! And clean the van too! So...the good things were: US is a nice place to travel, great national parks, cool cities, friendly locals, nice weather, fun activities to do, the group aspect could be nice depending on people, tour leader was better than average in general. But also...the not so great things... I realise the group you are with is hit and miss so bear that in mind! The whole camping-cooking set up was definitely too much to do everyday. Need to stay in some places for a longer time Need more free time In hindsight, I would have started in New York like I did on my own which was good, then probably fly to Florida and either book a group tour with a company for a week or so, then go off on my own again and maybe join another tour for a couple of weeks to see national parks in the AZ/CO area then go to San Diego, Los Angeles, SF on my own, staying in hostels again. I cant recommend doing a trip for more than 3 weeks. I was really exhausted at the end from spending too much time doing things that I wouldnt had to do if i wasnt in a group tour. After this I went alone to Southeast Asia for 4 months and it was cheaper, easier, and less effort! No more camping and I met better people!

    These were without doubt the best 35 days of my life. I met so many amazing friends who I still keep in contact with. This trip of a lifetime has since inspired me to travel a lot more and have been away every summer since and am now currently living in Australia, something i wouldn't have been able to do without it. It taught me so much about the world and gave me skills that will help when travelling.

    I went on my trek a year and a half ago now but it still feels like it was just yesterday! I had the most amazing time of my life and met some amazing people. I never thought i'd get the opportunity to do such a trip and even now i still cant believe i've been to some of the places I have been...some of the most iconic places in the world; the grand canyon, las vegas and new york to name a few. The trek leader Vikki was great and did an amazing job of organising the trip and i'm definitely glad i did it through trek america. Hopefully some day i'll be able to do another trek!

    My trek was almost 3 years ago now and I remember it like it was yesterday. I was only 18 and had never done anything like this before. Our trek leader, Tyler, was exemplary and the trek itself was amazing. At times the weather was drab, or in Florida too hot, but that didn't affect my experience at all. The moral in camp was amazing and through it I have met friends for life. Those friends, Tyler included, is what made the trek most unforgettable. It was the experience that made us so close. Since the trek, two of the trek mates, one from Denmark, the other from the UK, are still in a relationship, one is married and one has immigrated to Australia. Despite the difficulties in keeping in contact, we ALL still have. We have met up as a large group about 6 times and as smaller groups even more times. I would recommend Trek to anyone. In fact I have, two of my best friends went on separate treks this year! I can't wait to graduate from uni and go on another trek.
