Galapagos, Ecuador, 2014

"Honestly, everything about our trip was amazing and exceeded our expectations in almost every way. Organization, information and trip planning, honestly Aaron, Original trails was OUTSTANDING on all these counts. You were so helpful in the pre-trip planning and I so appreciate being able to ask all the questions that we did. The sights that we saw in terms of plants, animals and landscapes are really what made this into a trip of a lifetime for us. It’s really hard to put into words how great the trip was, on a scale of 1-10…it was a 15 :) We loved working with Original Trails and would do so again in a heartbeat. When we get our act together we will get a review up on trip adviser so that we can help spread the good word. Thanks again for everything Aaron. "

Poon Hill Trek Nepal, 2014

"We are back from our 5 day trek to Poon hill in Nepal and are so pleased with how our trip went. Our guide, Jagat Tamang was a fantastic resource and prepared us each evening for the next days events. We thoroughly enjoyed his company. His English was very good, and more importantly as was his patience while my husband and I practiced our Nepali. With such a small group; my husband, myself, our porter Satya and Jagat we quickly found ourselves joking in the evening, sharing cultural customs and teaching each other card games. Sharing the beautiful scenery, rejoicing in gorgeous weather and learning so much from Jagat about Nepal was the heartbeat of our trip. I will be sharing this experience with family and friends for the rest of my life. Thank You for the wonderful memories! "

Poon Hill Trek Nepal, 2014

"Just wanted to let you know that we are back in the States after our trip to Nepal. We had such a lovely time and the weather was thankfully nice. Our guide, Donnie Llama, was fantastic! We were so glad to have him as our guide and even other trekkers we met were a little jealous how cool he was, which made us feel like we had the best guide out there! Thank you for everything you did to make our trek possible and for customizing it to drive one way to Pokhara. Regarding that, the drive was awesome! Also, we appreciate that you do sustainable tourism/ethical travel. After seeing issues of third world countries firsthand (and having personally studied effects of tourism in my postgraduate program), we were happy that we chose a company that is conscientious. So, thank you for everything. "

Trail fit Peru 2013

"It could have easily been just another 'Contiki tour' or a 'Gap adventure', but it was so much more, and way beyond what I had expected. Original Trails gave us the opportunity to really immerse ourselves in the local culture and history of Cusco. We explored the Sacred Valley and learned the traditions and customs of the people who live there. We journeyed down ancient Inca paths and took in the awesome, expansive Andean panoramas along the way. We didn't just visit Peru, the Inca trail and Macchu Picchu. We truly got to experience it all. Thanks Aparna and Aaron and I'll be seeing you soon on yet another adventure."

Customized Safari & Zanzibar

"We must thank Original Trails for arranging a wonderful, customized trip. The accommodations and guides that were arranged for us were excellent. Everything went like clockwork and we felt safe and well taken care of every step of the way. We finally flew back to Toronto after six weeks with memories to last a lifetime. We must extend our thanks to Aaron for organizing such a wonderful trip. Everything either met or exceeded our expectations."
