Nature is wonderful when you get up close and personal!. The hikes help you push the edges of your comfort zone and you finish the journey tired but very satisfied.

This is a wonderful trip which I would highly recommend to hikers of all levels-- especially beginners to moderate level hikers. The leaders were all informative, welcoming and highly organized

I completely enjoyed the week. It was everything I expected and more. The hike leaders were very personable. They were knowledgeable of the area and sensitive to the varying needs and abilities of the group. The night programs were educational and entertaining. Jenny's story telling was a highlight. The chosen hikes were spectacular and gave a great feel for the Finger Lakes area. The accommodations were rustic but very comfortable and well maintained. The food was not fancy, but it was good and plentiful. The group was congenial and full of very interesting people. We completely enjoyed the week.

Bob, Lexington, Ky June 2-7 Splendid affair! The hikes are just lovely, scenery can't be beat. The leadership is very good. Truly have not been on one that the leadership was better. Neil the hike leader is simply the best. Enjoyed seeing the Western Museum of Art. Do hope to go again, but in the fall.

All aspects of this program are first class - leaders, facilities, sites visited. And the hikes are reasonable (could be even more challenging, but options are offered for those who might be less well conditioned, or others who are more ambitious hikers). I recommend this program without reservations.

A waterfall lover's delight. Beautiful hikes, reasonable accommodations, and two wine tastings - what's not to like?

If you like moderate hiking with an experienced guide through interesting geologic formations in hardwood forests, this trip is for you!

Finger Lakes region was great to explore - really enjoyed the trails near the gorgeous gorges. The staff was helpful, the accommodations were convenient and well taken care of. A wonderful adventure was had by all.

This program was accurately described regarding the difficulty of the hikes and their length. The views were spectacular, the guides very informative and encouraging, and the participants very cohesive in their ideas on living.

I was very impressed with Hiking the Finger Lake Trails program. The hikes were just rugged enough that beginning hikers, like myself had no problem completing them.

The leaders were informative and extremely capable. They passed on knowledge of the hike and also the terrain and history of the areas we hiked.

I would reccomend this program for anyone that enjoys the outdoors.

This was far & away the best program I've ever attended. Jenny Monroe has put together the PERFECT program in a most beautiful location. First of all, her organizational skills have made the difference! The bus was always on time, where it was supposed to be. The hikes were well-lead and diverse and always "as advertised" if not more beautiful. The accommodation was comfortable and clean, the food plentiful and fresh. The wine tastings were in lovely locations, the "picnic" lunch spots were fun. The availability of vouchers for free admission to museum tours was wonderful, appreciated, and used.

I guess, to sum it up, I'd have to say WOW!
