    Walking the Appalachian Trail-TANP

    I was very much looking forward to this trip as it would provide a sampler of this iconic trail &amp; was the best time to see the changing colours. Sadly, it missed my expectations. The real big disappointment was not being able to hike the northern terminus of this trail, Mt Katahdin in Baxter State Park. Not because of weather or inability but because the company that Exodus partners with, Grand American Adventures, didn't secure a DUPR parking reservation. Without this $5 pass that their office could have acquired within the last 2 weeks or less(for non Maine residents) we were hooped. Also, the Freedom Trail which is featured in the trip notes was not done. Should have been done the last day. However, we spent many hours in Freeport, Maine at the outlet stores enroute to Boston.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Probably the Franconian Ridge walking.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We had 2 leaders, Jordan &amp; Adrienne. This was the last trip of the season &amp; I got a sense of them both being a little burnt out. Safety on hikes was not observed, particularly with so many levels of hikers involved. The group was usually spread out over long distances, even on the mountain hikes. Also, the 1st day we met these ladies in Boston we were told of their expectations of tips. The amount that was suggested in the trip notes were for each of them. This was reiterated so many times. Quite unprofessional really!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This may be a one off poorly run trip. I realize that from other reviews their trips ran smoothly where they got to do all that was covered in the trip notes &amp; had amazing leaders. However, I feel this trip was run more like a Trek America trip. Poor value as it wasn't an inexpensive trip.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I have been on so many Exodus trips that I have lost count, all over the world. So far this is the only one that failed my expectations. I still plan on using them in the future.

    Appalachian Trail Lodges

    Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday although the difficult terrain on the hikes was somewhat understated in the trip notes

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Franconia Ridge was amazing as was Acadia National Park

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We had two Mitchell and Jeremy who were at opposite ends of the scale in terms of personality. I did not feel the usual Exodus care and attention when guiding hikes was given, Jeremy needs to slow down as some of our group were intimidated by the speed he set

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The Kathadin hike is very arduous and felt more like climbing than scrambling over the boulder field

    Waking the Appalachian Trail - Lodges

    This is a great, active holiday that delivers a variety of terrains, vistas and experiences. From climbing the highest mountain in Maine to sea kayaking on the Atlantic; from eating freshly cooked lobster to home made blueberry pie - this holiday has it all.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Summiting Mount Katahdin and witnessing many exhausted, yet exuberant hikers reaching their final destination of the Appalachian Trail.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The group leaders Ben and Jake were fit, happy, helpful and knowledgeable which contributed to a memorable adventure.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be as fit as possible as the New England area is quite mountainous and there is a lot of climbing. Hiking poles may be helpful.

    A great trip

    A really great trip made even better by two excellent leaders.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Getting to the top of Katahdin!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The two leaders, Allen and Justin, were superb. They worked well together and nothing was too much trouble. They organised well and made the trip fun.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Get fit before you go if you aim to do the most strenuous walks.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We stayed a bit longer at the end of the group trip. Most of our group seemed to be doing the same. The flight from Bar Harbor to Boston in a Cessna is amazing.
