There is no reason for me not to give 5 stars but then that would mean they are perfect, but room for improvement should always be there, hence 4 :) I have been going for treks since quite long now and would go either with friends or with SSA only. With SSA it had been the most exciting experience right from my first trek with SSA to Rajmachi in 2015, I think it was 2015, till now; tried to go with them almost every month in 2016. Taken part in their Trekathon as well and can say that they can be relied upon with planning. I have had some really memorable moments with them be it dancing a top kalavantin durg at 1.30am at night or enjoying the lunch of chole puri atop Irshalgad. Had a good time with each member of SSA be it at  Visapur,Rajmachi, Kalavantin, Kolad river rafting, Raigad, Kalsubai, Koraigad... the list goes on. I have brought my friends and relatives as well to the trek with SSA since I know how they manage people. The SSA guys know what they are doing and never is there a doubt about the place to go or what to do. I do regret not being able to give time for joining in with the SSA team for cleanup on the fort and going to Orphanage to help others and such. But can say with surety that there are many more years/decades that I shall stay with SSA team :)
