Western Explorer

Yosemite National Park, Mariposa County, California. Half Dome Fall

Small Group Tours

Experience Yosemite, Death Valley, the Grand Canyon, and everywhere in between. This small group tour gives you a chance to visit five different national parks as well as San Franscico and Las Vegas. It’s a great opportunity to travel and experience western America without having to worry about any of the planning or organising accommodation. Accompanied by a group leader, you’ll be invited to explore the parks on guided tours, or you can take to the trails under your own steam. There’s plenty of free time included as well as whole days in Yosemite National Park and the Grand Canyon. Along the way you’ll discover hoodoos in Bryce Canyon and Navajo culture in Monument Valley. Drives between destinations are super scenic and give you a better understanding of the landscape as it morphs from pine covered valleys to sand dunes and salt pans. The route from Death Valley to Zion National Park is like watching an oasis appear from the dry and arid depths of the desert. It’s a fascinating tour and one that you’ll want to relive again and again.
