"I felt the value of this trip far exceeded the cost so I was pleasantly surprised that the trip offered so much! I was also glad to know that our guide would be cooking all of our meals. Since it was a 3 day overnight hiking trip I figured we would be eating dehydrated meals but boy was I pleasantly surprised that all of the food was FRESH AND DELICIOUS! Nick Weaver was our guide and I'm sad to say that all of my future guided hikes will likely pale in comparison and be a disappointment because Nick set the bar SO HIGH! He was just fantastic and I can't wait to go on another trip with him! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!" - Amanda Z.
"The inn-based trip was beyond my expectations. I was amazed at Nick's knowledge of the park. He was extremely prepared and I was amazed at how he accommodated everybody's needs. The accommodations we stayed at were unbelievable. The company does a great job of answering all of your questions ahead of time so you feel completely relaxed before you head out on the adventure." - Peggy A.
"There is nothing better than a walk through the woods to clear your mind and lighten your soul, unless it is a walk led by a wonderful Wildland Trekking guide who also happens to be a great cook! We had an amazing time backpacking in the Smoky Mountains. Our guide was an extremely experienced and knowledgeable backpacker who taught us so much about plant life, the trails, animals and history. We got so much more out of our trip from our guide, plus he did all the cooking! He took care of us from start to finish and was a joy to be around." - Jennifer S.
