This was my first Trek Trip and it met every single expectation. If you like riding through the countryside in rolling hills with beautiful views this delivers. The food was amazing and the guides have developed an interesting and fun itinerary. They make you feel like you are one of the family.

Trek Travel Guest

We had a wonderful experience on our Vermont Trek Travel Adventure. The attention to detail was impressive. The e-bike option was a fantastic decision for us. We ride, but we are not avid riders. The assistance from the e-bike made our time less stressful and more doable. We are already planning next year and the year after.
