"A great trip, well organized, with a friendly group. It was everything we wanted it to be: we got the hike (wonderful), we got snacks and water, we were picked up and delivered back, and we had a great lunch to round it off. Absolutely recommended. I'd go with GWA again, no hesitation. The four of us were also extremely grateful to GWAC for refunding the money of the fifth member of the party, who was too ill to come, without any quibbles. That was kind, and left us with a very good feeling!" -
