Quote of the Month
I have wandered all my life,
and I have also traveled;
the difference between
the two being this,
 that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.

September  2016
leaves.jpg September is our busiest month, as it is for many tour companies.  But we don't have too many leaf-peepers on our fall tours;  our groups are coming to witness one of the most unique Old West traditions in North America:  the annual Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup.  As usual, we sold out again, and it pains me to have to turn away folks who waited til the last minute to book.  Next year's dates are Sept. 27-Oct 2.  Please book early!

Lewis & Clark Trail
We've had an uptick in requests for this iconic American adventure in the past few weeks and since it's one of our favorite journeys, we are looking forward to doing it again in 2017.  If you were signed up for the 2016 departure (which didn't quite muster enough participants) we will honor 2016 rates!   We know you will think it is worth the wait!  Read what  past participants have to say about this very unique excursion.

Legendary North Dakota West Dakota
It has been said that we specialize in Bucket List tours, and North Dakota is certainly one of them.  But as long as there are people trying to complete their 50-state list, we'll keep doing it.  This year's itinerary has been shortened and spruced up with some new enhancements that we know you will enjoy.  Check it out.

Reunion Tour 

There is something about traveling with the same group of people for 16 days, sharing the same interests and desire to learn more, which bonds that group for all time.  Several past participants in the Lewis & Clark Trail program have contacted us about a desire to travel again with friends made on that trip and have asked me to build an itinerary .   Read more.....

Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.


Happy Trails!
