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 two driver/guides who share 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.

We reserve the right to guide and drive a tour with only one tour guide/driver if there are less than 6 participants on this tour.

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.
