- RussellWritten on March 16, 20175.0 - ExcellentAbsolutely awesome trip! Can't recommend it highly enough. So much fun and so many awesome sights. What made our trip so great was our tour guide Tim. He often went above and beyond to make sure we all had the best time possible. Just a genuinely great guy too.Show detailed ratings

- AAnonymousWritten on August 20, 20135.0 - ExcellentWe had the best time on the Western BLT, the group bonded instantly and we were all like minded, young people. Yes there was a lot of driving but it's so worth it when you reach your next destination! Vegas in particular was a highlight and we really made the most of our time there. The trip is what you make of it; YOLO and you can sleep when your dead were our favourite quotes throughout! I do not regret a single thing about this trek and the experiences we shared as a group are priceless. The trek was 10 times better than I could have ever expected and I really have made some friends for life.
- AAnonymousWritten on July 19, 20134.0 - GoodThis was a great introduction to the beauty & wonder of the West Coast. The Grand Canyon was the breath-taking highlight of this trek for me but I also loved the neon fun of Las Vegas and the beauty of Yosemite. It's a LOT of driving but as a taster of the 3 cities and the national parks between it was ideal. I'll definitely go back again to spend more time in the area, either alone or on a longer tour. (It should be said that there is no tour included of the cities at the start or end of the trip - in this case San Francisco & LA - so you do need to arrange flights for a few days before and after the trek itself if you want to see the sights). The lodging was basic but of a better standard than I had expected and we were fortunate to have good comraderie amid the group. The trek leader was good fun and an excellent guide but somewhat limited in what she could show us because of the time frame & distance covered. I had a great time and recommend the experience highly.
- AAnonymousWritten on July 11, 20134.0 - GoodThis was an amazing tour of the East Coast of America. I was just disapointed that we didn't get to tour San Francisco and L.A. Yosemite and the Grand Canyon had amazing views. I met some great people and hardly stopped laughing the whole trip.
- AAnonymousWritten on July 10, 20134.0 - GoodThe tour is brilliant if you want to see San Francisco, Yosemite, Vegas and LA all in one trip (and one week!). You have to travel a fair bit to squeeze in all these sights, but packing in so many iconic places really does make it worth it.
- AAnonymousWritten on December 9, 20124.0 - GoodWestern BLT from San Francisco is an amazing trip. It's crazy how much you see in a week and you will feel like you have known you fellow travellers for ages after just a couple of days. This is a great taster if you are not too sure about the 'treking' aspect as the trip is a great mix between hiking and sight seeing days. I was a bit unsure about the walking but its easy in Yosemite and the Grand Canyon to do as little or as much walking as you want. Las Vegas is a good couple of social days in the middle of the Yosemite and Grand Canyon trek days, and LA is a nice way to end round of the trip. You might want to spend more time here and in San Fran before and after the trek as you don't get explore very much on the tour.
- AAnonymousWritten on December 7, 20125.0 - ExcellentIt was really great trip. First, l loved meeting new friend from other country. I experienced for 7 days. it was really short to me. Every city in USA i went was nice. It was so funny and great because i went to there with my new friends. I',m still contacting friends that met there. But The trrp cost was expensive. becaus i must pay additional cost too much in addition to cost i already pay. I think the notice about additional cost need for futer trekkersconcretely. Anyway it was great memory ^^ Thank you. It is very nice program!!!!!!!!!!!!!! surely.
- AAnonymousWritten on December 7, 20125.0 - ExcellentSan Francisco, pretty cool place, personally I wish I had more time there, but crossing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge was definiately a highlight! Yosemite NP was suprising in a good way! I'd never hear of it before and wasn't particulary keen, but when we arrived it was absolutely stunning! There is so much to do there, like long walks or just hanging out with nature! Yosemite bug was a pretty cool place to stay! Las Vegas is just crazy but in a good way! I LOVED it, the atmosphere is buzzing and it's like a completely different from day and night! Also theres soooo many things to do, I'd recommend cruising down the strip in a party bus/limo. Grand Canyon was surreal! It does look EXACTLY like it does in pictures but it's nothing like actually BEING there. We got a picnic and watched the sunset.. amazing! Lake Havasu, where the cool kids go for spring break! We had a mini spring break, we rented out a boat and chilled on the beach! Lake Havasu city is quiet, however it was HOT HOT HOT so chilling on the beach was a must! Los Angeles, don't really understand the hype of LA, personally I didn't dig it. The best thing we did there was go and see the Hollywood sign and the view of the city was beautiful. Didn't really like the walk of fame, it was busy and all the people were rude. Venice beach was ok, there are plenty of crazy people to keep you entertained! Personally, this was the most amazing 7 days of my life! America was amazing as it is and the places we visited were awesome! However, the people I trekked with and our tour lead Devon Blunden were just as amazing. I'd recommend this trek, especially if you're not a big fan of camping, if you want to see a small part of an awesome country - with such a variety of places to go, and you LOVE being with people and having a good time!
- AAnonymousWritten on December 7, 20124.0 - GoodI can't recommend this tour highly enough. If you're after a "quicky" trek which takes in a lot and crams in a lot of bizarre things to see and do, this is it. Our tour leader (Devon) was brilliant- such a cool guy, who obviously loves his job and, whilst living in his own Devonsville, made everyone feel welcome. There wasn't one place I disliked (well, maybe LA, but that's more because our first glimpse of the city was seeing a tramp pull down her pants and pee all over the pavement RIGHT OUTSIDE THE BUS). Yosemite was beautiful and breath-taking. I say breath-taking thanks to the gorgeous scenery as well as the walks on offer. In the end a group of us rode the shuttle around the park and visited the Ahwahnee Hotel (inspiration for The Shining). The Bug Hostel was great- especially the massive, industrial sized hot tub and lovely grub. Also, we saw a fudging BEAR right in the middle of the road. Vegas was........ different to what I expected. But in a omg-this-place-is-so-tacky-I-LOVE-it kinda way. Embrace the tackiness. Take in the dilapidated Bill's gambling hall with all night karaoke, the thrill of an overweight faux Italian gondolier guiding you threw a condom strewn swimming pool and the free to witness soft core pirate porn. This place was EPIC. Especially the gun store. I have a feeling I was a bit too excited with that and turned into a hick for the day- complete with cut off denims. The Canyon was pretty sweet- though I actually wouldn't recommend the helicopter tours. Everyone pays the same price, but if you're in the back and not next to a window it's not that amazing, I tell you. The first glimpse of it from the ground, with Devon's blind conga line, was a really special moment though. Havasu- chilling on a boat, playing The Lonely Island, ordering take out on the beach.... just brilliant.
