I recently had the pleasure of doing the "Best of the West" through World Expeditions/ATW. I must commend to you the most excellent experience we had with our tour leader. He was exceptional in his attention to detail, his knowledge, his sense of humour and his thorough professionalism. Well done and thanks for a truely marvellous trip.

Western USA Family Adventure

Western USA is a land of stark contrasts: from the towering granite walls of Yosemite to the silent desert landscapes of Death Valley and Monument Valley to the deep canyons of Utah and the solitude of beautiful Zion National Park. On this journey we take in all the highlights with an emphasis on fun activities for all the family. In Utah's canyon country we spend two days at an adventure ranch where optional activities include rock climbing, horse riding and canyoneering. At night we stay in comfortable cowboy wagons for a unique and authentic experience. In Yosemite we explore the valley by bike and raft or swim in the Merced River. Other highlights include the giant Sequoia trees of California, Lake Powell and Monument Valley, and of course the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. Combined with sightseeing in San Francisco and time spent in vibrant Las Vegas, this trip promises to be a great family experience!
