A wonderful trip! October 20195.0
superlatives which have been covered by reviewers below, so I will not repeat
them, but suffice to say that this trip exceeded both our expectations in
terms of the amazing variation in landscape in the iconic National Parks
visited, and the diversity of activities - ranging from exciting hikes, to
laying on the ground in Death Valley looking at the Night Sky. Never a dull
moment - and our guide inserted little surprises at regular intervals.
Perhaps meeting our inspirational Navajo guide in Monument Valley and
learning about her childhood and culture. But lots to inspire both of us
Joseph Spaid was an incredible leader. He was so knowledgable, approachable,
engaging and fun. He was very interesting to chat to, and worked so hard to
make sure everyone’s needs were met. We were quite a disparate crowd of
11, some very experienced hikers, others recovering from recent injury, but
he found ways to embrace that - I wish I had his energy!

able to meet up with the Group on Sunday.
Las Vegas didn’t appeal to us, so we didn’t stay at the end, and we in
time to fly out on the same night.
The helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon was just extraordinary!
As an introduction to SW America, this trip takes some beating. It was
Thank you Exodus and Grand American Adventures!!

with opportunities for physical activity in order to experience it more
fully. Very good tour leader, experienced, knowledgeable and well organised.
Tour group (9 of us) , various ages and experiences, combined well. A great
Hard to pick one particular moment or event. Perhaps the experience of
Yosemite: view of the valley from Glacier Point, variety of hikes, and also
appreciating the national park beyond the valley itself.
Very good. See above.
Some long days in the bus, but that doesn't have to be a problem- it can just
mean that you see more.
