SPECIAL INTERESTS

FAMILY & MULTIGENERATIONAL

What’s the greatest gift you can think of to give your children and loved ones? We’re willing to bet a thriving planet teeming with life and natural beauty, joyous memories, and unhurried time together may be high on your list. We agree. This is why we’ve made this the foundation of our journeys.

The secret to a successful family vacation is to engage the children. And where better to do that than in America’s playgrounds in the West, California and Alaska? Visiting the National Parks and other wild spaces in the western US is not only fun but it can add another level of meaningfulness to multigenerational trips as grandparents and parents delight to see their children and grandchildren discover the places they remember from childhood. California is an ideal family destination, with the perfect mix of natural beauty, cultural and historic attractions, and simple pleasures like the beach and amusement parks. And Alaska’s wildlife and wide range of activities, from hiking, to river rafting to dogsledding, are made to order for active family and multigenerational crews.

Our custom vacations take into account each family member’s interests, activity levels, and personality to create an unforgettable experience for everyone. Our expertise comes from creating hundreds of family trips, including our own! Ask around: we know how to put smiles on faces—from the littlest travelers to grandparents, and everyone in-between.

HIGHLIGHTS

Private Guided Tour of the Black Hills Region


Private Guided Tour of the Black Hills Region

Your private guide will escort you and your family on a full-day tour of the Black Hills region, focusing on Mt. Rushmore National Monument, Custer State Park, and Crazy Horse Memorial. In Custer State Park, the 18-mile Wildlife Loop Road offers the opportunity to see a herd of 1,300 bison and pronghorn antelope roaming freely, one of the largest publicly-owned herds in the world. Another option is a visit to the museum at the Black Hills Institute in Hill City. It is one of the world’s leading organizations in paleontological excavations and preparation since 1974, helping supply museums and collectors the finest in professionally prepared fossils and cast replicas.

Revealed America Tip: Mt. Rushmore is such a special place, you may wish to visit the monument in the morning when the light is especially good for photography, and then return in the early evening when the lights are turned on. Whatever option you choose, your guide will be happy to accommodate you.
