Great company, great weekend!Barb S.

I was super impressed with the workshops. The Ethics of the "Leave No Trace" principles are very important to me, and I was so pleased that they were stressed and practiced through out the weekend.Shelly M.

We wished the trip hadn't come to an end. Thank you for sharing your expertise and bringing us all together.Terry O.

Best hiking group ever! I loved the guides. They were both so kind and patient and answered all those questions I had about stoves, filters, packing backpack.Tippi M.

I really liked the planning that was evident on this trip. No one can predict the weather - and we certainly experienced 3 of the 4 seasons - but there were plans in place to deal with whatever mother nature threw at us.Linda M.

I liked the option of hiking at our own pace on sunday morning, not being in a hurry to get to the hostel. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much!Margie H.

I liked the great trail, great people, and the great time we had. I just wish that bugs didn't like me so much.Junlan L.

I've loved the positive energy of the group, highly motivated by the guides. Andy, you've done a fantastic job at making us believe we walked around the world :-). This shows how well organized and planned everything was.Marta A.

This trip was AMAZING! I can't say enough about how organized the trip was, how knowledgeable the guides were and how beautiful it was!Stephanie P.

What an absolutely wonderful weekend this was! It was refreshing, challenging, relaxing, fun, therapeutic, inspiring, energizing, esteem building, educational and informative. The weekend was filled with new and unique experiences for me - caving, yoga, yoga in a cave, gourmet dining. Loved all of the caves we were able to see on the hikes and also the ones we were able to explore. I didn't realize how fun it would be to get up close and personal with a cave by crawling in the dirt on hands and knees. Sign me up for the next retreat!Karen P.

Guides were great. Perfect team that complemented each other perfectly. Very patient and addressed everyone's unique needs.Toni M.

The loved the amazing attention to detail and the supportive environment that the guides provided. Surprising to myself, I really enjoyed the yoga. And of course the hiking. The fantastic leaders set the tone for a group. They encouraged a supportive female environment from the start and ensured everyone felt comfortable and included.Ellie H.
