Adventure Travel Tours - Hotel based - West USA Travel Dates and Rates

For a full list of our escorted tours please see the list below – click on the tour name for more information on a particular tour.


Our adventure travel tours are escorted by a local, knowledgeable driver/guide who shares with you background information on each destination. At Travel Dream West your interests come first – and we encourage you to share these interests with us before you even arrive at the tour. Let us know if you enjoy photography, hikes, swimming, bird watching, flower identifying, or anything else! Because our travel tour groups are limited to 9-12 tour participants you can be assured of personalized, customized service. This isn’t mass tourism with big buses and twenty passengers. We take time sharing with you the beauty and uniqueness of the Western U.S. so that, in the end, you can look back on an unforgettable, life changing experience.

Note that all of our tours are available on a customized basis throughout the year. If you have a small group of interested individuals please contact us for information. We are always happy to accommodate special interest groups including clubs, schools or families. Our knowledge of the West gives you the opportunity to plan a tour that covers your group’s special needs and interests, both as escorted tours or on your own.

Reservations, payment terms and small group surcharges, for bookings beginning January 1, 2016-2021:
(information found on our reservations page)

Special Terms during COVID-19:

We realize that during these times it’s hard to predict what 2021 will bring in terms of travel restrictions and COVID-19 outbreaks, and though we feel confident that next year will bring positive changes, we’d like you to know that we are going to be flexible to accommodate changing travel plans!  With that in mind we are temporarily changing our terms and conditions for all new bookings.  We will still collect 30% deposit at the time of booking, however this will be refundable up to 60 days prior to tour departure, with a $200 non-refundable service charge should you need to cancel (instead of the 10% plus non-refundable reservations exceeding this amount). For cancellations closer to tour departure we will still use the same cancellation policy outlined below, and we highly recommend obtaining cancellation insurance to cover your changing plans.  Should we need to cancel a tour on our end because of government restrictions you will have the choice of a full refund or rescheduling your tour departure to a different date with no additional cost.

Except in special circumstances booking is required no later than 8 weeks before the tour start date, contact Travel Dream West for last-minute booking availability. At booking time 30% of the total tour price is paid, in US dollars (all taxes and fees are included in the total price). Four weeks before the tour the entire price of the trip must be paid. By cancellation of a tour: before 60 days refund minus 10% of total tour price and any non-refundable reservations exceeding this amount, 59-30 days 20% of the tour price, 29-15 days before tour 50%, 14-8 days before tour 70% and 7-0 days before tour 100% of the total tour price. With five or less participants a small group surcharge per person will apply between U$200 – US$450. With 3 or less participants a special arrangement will be offered. You will be informed at least 45 days before departure if such small group surcharge would apply and be added to your rest-payment. If any additional participants would sign-up on short notice, Travel Dream West reimburses the small group surcharge on the first day of the tour.

Our Guarantee:
Each escorted tour will be provided as described on the web page and in brochures and catalogs and has no more than 12 participants plus knowledgeable tour guide.. Our tours are planned a year in advance, and therefore it is sometimes necessary to update our schedule and make small changes – you will be informed of these promptly. If a change in itinerary would lower the costs of the tour Travel Dream West will reimburse you for the difference. Our responsibility begins at the start of the tour, you are responsible for your own transportation to and from the tour meeting place and timely arrival.

Limits on Travel Dream West’s responsibility:
Travel Dream West Inc. purchases transportation, hotel accommodations, restaurant and other services from various independent suppliers that are not subject to its control.
