“Beyond description, and I’m an English teacher! We chose Caravan for our 50th anniversary celebration and could not have been more pleased. Incredible offerings and accommodations made for personal needs at each stop. Loved the sights and photo ops, a totally comfortable amount. Loved that we could watch beautiful and informative films if we so chose. Never felt tired, and we loved the mini-hikes. Our TD was truly extraordinary, the ✭ director of the year, and all museum guides and assistants were inspirational. We may consider another tour in the future (this was our first), it was such a positive experience. ”

Mr. R.B., Englewood, New Jersey

“Looking for a carefree vacation? Caravan takes care of everything. Logistics, including airport and baggage transfers, hotels, sightseeing and activities, and reservations for all the events. Long coach rides can be quite boring, right? No so if you were fortunate enough to have booked the Caravan Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore and Grand Tetons tour in August this year. Our awesome driver guided us as we traversed 1250 miles of spectacular scenery for six days. Mother nature treated us to thrilling views geysers, hot springs, abundant lodgepole pine trees, lakes, rivers and wildlife. Bring your camera so you can capture the significant milestones and awesome sights along the way. The two hour float trip on the Snake River was a relaxing ride, as we were on watch for waterfowl, beaver, osprey, eagles, and big game elk, bison, and deer. The Grand Tetons provide a fantastic backdrop as you take it all in. And don’t worry if you slept through geography and social studies class in high school. Enter our director, a great storyteller with colorful speech and quick wit. Never dull, the daily excursions traveling through the west all rolled up into one incredible trip. ”

Mr. C.R., Chattanooga, Tennessee

“When I’m ready for another guided tour, Caravan would be a top choice. I was totally impressed with how organized everything was. So many great activities and sights: the float trip was definitely one of the highlights along with the hikes around the hot springs. Our tour director made the trip so fun, and our driver was excellent, always smiling, helpful and welcoming us aboard. The float trip was really special, and lots of rest and photo stops made our vacation enjoyable.”

Mr. & Mrs. A.N., East Syracuse, New York

“Outstanding. I cannot emphasize enough how pleased we were to go on our 2nd trip with Caravan. This was equally, if not better, than our last trip to Yosemite. We had a great time, felt safe, and couldn’t have seen as much or learned as much if we went at it alone. We cannot say enough good things about your staff and our experience. They aced it. Our TD was an excellent animator and director delivering on what was promised and more. We enjoyed all the sights and guided tours, very well chosen. Relaxing, scenic and very memorable, we’d recommend it to anyone. ”

Mr. & Mrs. A.M., Abington, Pennsylvania

“This is my third Caravan tour and by far the best. I have highly recommended you to many people and show them your brochure. I was very happy with the provided activities and sights and especially liked our director’s narration about what we were seeing as it greatly enhanced our experience. I never had and probably never will have a finer tour director. ”

Mr. J.B., Mount Vernon, Ohio

“I am very happy that I took this tour through history, and happy with all we were able to see and do. We have a beautiful country right here and to be able to finally visit things and learn about them was an amazing experience. So many breathtaking moments along with a narrative by a professional; again, amazing. Even during longer drives, our director kept us informed about where we were and any important history that tied our tour together. He was an excellent tour director. Entertaining, he held my attention and his time management was impeccable. I was impressed with his concern for us and his preparedness; he was a pleasure to travel with for the seven days. Thank you.”

Mrs. P.P., Lavallette, New Jersey

“Excellent trip in all aspects and a great value! Caravan took good care of me from the airport arrival to the airport departure. Yellowstone and Grand Tetons were beautiful. Loved the geysers and thermal activity, canyons, waterfalls, mountains and wildlife. Enjoyed the float trip down the river and will certainly consider booking another Caravan adventure in the future. ”

Mr. L.R., Lebanon, Ohio

“You folks at Caravan really take care of your customers. Not an ill word was uttered. Nothing but praise and thanks. Our group appreciated a good time, good price and meals. Great tour all around! Thank for the opportunity to express my gratitude to your company. ”

Mr. D.B., Bel Air, Maryland

“This entire tour was excellent. We loved every single thing about it. So many amazing sights and amazing places we stopped for gorgeous scenery. This was our 3rd trip with Caravan and it won’t be our last. We have always been very pleased. This trip was packed with exceptional sights and we loved them all. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Yellowstone, Devil’s Tower, Grand Tetons, float trip, Jackson Hole...too many great things to mention. It was a wonderful trip. Would like to commend Caravan on great tour directors and drivers. We loved them on all three trips. Keep up the good work. ”

Mrs. L.T., Ector, Texas

“Our neighbors introduced us to Caravan after enjoying their first experience on the Grand Canyon. We were so pleased with our first experience that we signed right up for another and have already passed on a catalogue to interested friends. We found all the hotels to be very nice and each different. There was a good balance between natural beauty and historical significance. Especially appreciated were the Crazy Horse memorial, the Little Bighorn monument, and the Snake River trip. We had a great, caring, considerate and organized director. Everything was excellent, and I think our director made excellent choices. All we hoped for, thanks! ”

Mr. & Mrs. W.D., Ludington, Michigan

“We found the entire tour to be very educational. We expected to enjoy the sights, as we went to the Tetons and Yellowstone years ago, but Mount Rushmore was new to us. Our director and driver went off the beaten path to make sure we’d see everything, including a large herd of bison. Great job by both of them! ”

Mr. & Mrs. R.F., Boston, Massachusetts

“We truly enjoyed the whole trip. This was the first time we used Caravan and we will definitely use them again. We are happy with the whole experience and would recommend this to everyone. We saw everything we wanted to see and so much more. The float ride by the Tetons was most enjoyable. There was enough stops for what we needed and the photo stops were beautiful sights. All the hotels were very nice and clean. Our favorites were the Old Faithful Inn and Virginian. We thank you for giving us a vacation we will always remember. ”

Mrs. V.V., North Royalton, Ohio

“This was our second Caravan tour. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. Caravan does an outstanding job of planning and selection/training of tour directors. We felt there was a good balance between planned activities and time on our own. ”

Ms. J.B., Gloversville, New York

“Perfect. All activities and sightseeing spots were worthwhile. Our Snake River float was fantastic, with a great guide. We enjoyed the National Oregon Trail Center. Great photo opportunities, carefully spaced at interesting places with good facilities. Dinner on the last night was the perfect ending to the trip. ”

Mrs. M.M., Rutherford, New Jersey

“All in all, the trip was a tremendous value for the price and I will continue to travel with Caravan. Old Faithful Inn was extraordinary! Amazing structure and location, such a wonderful experience!! Great at Crazy Horse and Mt. Rushmore. Loved the Snake River float and local tour of Yellowstone. Great photo stops at falls and geysers, and great stops and timing for rest. ”

Ms. S.T., Portland, Oregon

“We are ready to again with Caravan. We enjoyed this just as much as the Grand Canyon tour, and that’s saying a lot. Great trip, great time. No complaints says it all. We enjoyed all our activities, and my favorite was rafting down the Snake River and viewing the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed our stay at all five hotels, no problems and very comfortable beds. We live in a beautiful country. ”

Mr. & Mrs. J.M., Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

“This is our second Caravan trip and believe it to be an excellent value. We were well taken care of from the beginning until the end. Our TD was excellent, very considerate, funny, and knowledgeable. He kept us all on time and explained activities in advance. All the stops were very good with plenty of time to see things. Really enjoyed the rafting trip, Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. The Old Faithful inn was excellent!”

Mr. R.P., Venice, Florida

“This was a great trip and I hope I can take another Caravan tour sometime in the future. All of the meals on the tour were wonderful. The sheer number and selection of the places visited were WELL worth the money. Very illuminating, myth bustin' and educational. Our tour director was highly motivated and excited about the tour. He was very professional and always on top of departure schedules, luggage handling, meal tickets, etc... He always tried to keep a running commentary on the sights, history, footnotes, etc..., while on the bus. I can wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone who has never visited that part of the country, and would like to see as many national treasures in the shortest amount of time.”

Mr. & Mrs. M.F., Staten Island, New York

“Great tours are the best way to assure you see all the highlights.... Our tour director did a great job. He kept everyone on time and informed us the history and points of interest that we were seeing. The overall trip was great, worth every penny we paid. We intend on traveling with you again, and I would feel very comfortable referring you to my friends.”

Mr. & Mrs. K.L., Tukwila, Washington

“It was a great tour. Excellent sightseeing, we were always on the go and saw so much in our eight days. That is what I like about Caravan. Our activities are planned so that we see so much. Our driver was outstanding, and our guide was the best! He made the trip extra special. We are already talking about our next tour with Caravan to the Canadian Rockies. ”

Mrs. K.D., Montgomery, New York

“My friend who I toured with wanted to get a rental camper and do the National Parks on our own. I was not keen on this idea. I found your website and after reading the comments suggested it to my friend. This was the best decision we made. Enjoyed everything!! No complaints. All hotels were clean, comfortable and met all requests. And my thoughts on your director, well I don’t have enough room...from the minute he introduced himself to our last hug goodbye, I was in awe of his knowledge, facts, demeanor, and personality. Thank you so much. Loved it! ”

Ms. P.T., Bakersfield, California

“This was a terrific opportunity to visit many sites in a short period of time. We received quite a history lesson throughout the tour. All of the photo stops were truly amazing, provided many wonderful pictures, and were spaced appropriately. I thought the tour was very good and exceptional value. The itinerary was well thought out and our TD was a true professional. The scenery and routes were truly an unforgettable experience. We look forward to future tours with Caravan and have made recommendations to friends, family and others. Great job! ”

Mr. P.P., Lavallette, New Jersey

“A wonderful, well organized tour through some of the most beautiful scenery and sites in the US, led by an experienced guide who educated us all the way. I enjoyed all the sightseeing activities and was amazed by Yellowstone. Rest stops were adequate and we had a lovely new coach. I appreciated the photo stops, got some great photos. We were two women traveling together and had very comfortable accommodations. Thanks! ”

Mrs. C.M., Norristown, Pennsylvania

“Wonderful, very happy with our first experience taking a guided tour. We saw more than we expected to see and places I always wanted to see. A lot of credit goes to our director. Loved his stories, so friendly, he made the tour a great experience. We saw and learned so much more than we would have if we had done this on our own. ”

Mrs. D.C., Grennville, South Carolina

“Excellent, excellent, excellent. This was a wonderful tour. We saw amazing majestic mountains, green valleys, waterfalls, rivers, and local sights. We had a wonderful tour director who was so knowledgeable about all the sights and wildlife. I learned a lot about this beautiful part of our country. The float was an unforgettable adventure. ”

Mrs. A.M., Inverness, Florida

“An absolutely incredible experience. Every day was an adventure. It’s hard to say what was a favorite as it all was fantastic. Beyond expectations. Wonderful and plentiful meals. Our driver was a marvel. ”

Mrs. C.P., Oak Lawn, Illinois

“Beyond excellent! This was our second Caravan tour and both were great! We saw and did so much that we never could have seen on our own. We saw the beautiful sights, a full itinerary. The floatride on the Snake River was so peaceful, with time to reflect on the beauty. Yellowstone Lodge was the best, but all the hotels were clean and comfortable in good locations, handy to restaurants and walks downtown. There wasn’t anything our director didn’t know. Very accommodating and pleasant. ”

Mrs. L.L., Portland, Maine

“When I think of my overall impression of our Caravan tour, I think about the comprehensive professionalism and knowledge of our tour director and I think of the wonderful places we visited and all that I learned about this part of our beautiful country. All the sights were beautiful and interesting. Yellowstone offered geological astonishments as well as beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Our director was amazing, abundantly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, engaged, prepared and offered everything one could ask for.”

Mrs. R.P., Farmingdale, New York

“If I ever take another tour, I sure would like to take it with Caravan. I enjoyed everything we did on this tour. Thanks so much for a nice time.”

Mrs. P.A., Yucaipa, California

“Very smooth ride. The sightseeing and activities were all excellent, and surpassed our expectations. Plenty of time for photos and exploration at each stop. Each of the sites and activities on this trip were well worth it. Each had their own special meaning. We especially loved Yellowstone and Grand Tetons and really enjoyed Snake River float. Our director was a gifted speaker and teacher of nature and history. He and our driver went out of their way to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety and his love of nature made him a wonderful TD. Can’t say enough good things about him. Very knowledgeable in the history of the west, and we learned so much about the plants, animals, rocks. All excellent! ”

Mr. & Mrs. R.B., Southwick, Massachusetts

“This was an excellent trip all around. Our tour director was the best we've ever had and we would definitely go on another trip with Caravan. As a matter of fact, we are already booked for another trip in March.”

Mr. & Mrs. E.S., Albuquerque, New Mexico

“This was a trip we always wanted to take. Your Caravan tour made it a dream come true. We hope some day to take another tour with Caravan. This was a dream come true trip for me as well. Have always wanted to see the West. Caravan made it possible and enjoyable!”

Mr. & Mrs. P.R., Fort Worth, Texas

“The trip for both Josh and I was very nice and enjoyable. I had never been on a tour before, but I would go again! THANK YOU! I will tell my friends.”

Mrs. J.L., Falmouth, Maryland

“I thought the entire trip was well planned. No complaints. This was a very nice tour. Our first with Caravan but not our last, very good value for your travel dollar. Very good trip, very congenial fellow travelers. Our tour guide was very caring. There was beautiful scenery. I appreciated the fact that additional activities were not pushed at us. Don't know when we would have had the time to do them anyway! Will plan to go next year with Caravan.”

Mr. & Mrs. S.A., Richmond, Indiana

“This company knows their business and they do it very well.”

Mr. & Mrs. D.H., Lancaster, South Carolina

“This part of our great country is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. The most important point: we saw what we came to see. Our experienced and knowledgeable director was funny and I could tell he loves his job. He gave us the best possible and made the group feel relaxed and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the trip. ”

Mr. T.D., Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

“A wonderful and exceptional experience. We seemed to see each feature from the best possible vantage point. The raft ride was one of our highlights, but everything was so beautiful it was so hard to name a favorite. We were glad we chose early June as all the animals had young with them, just fabulous. Enjoyed being lodged in the Old Faithful Inn, cannot beat the history and charm. And I cannot imagine a guide being any more interesting and kind. We have recommended Caravan to all our friends, thank you. ”

Mr. & Mrs. D.B., Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey

“Outstanding! Itinerary well-paced, efficient and thoroughly enjoyable. Looking forward to another Caravan trip. Your focus on the tours you have chosen to do makes them terrific: relationships with hotels, motor coach, float trip - everything goes smoothly. Everyone compares the competition. The value and pleasure of our trip compares favorably with more costly companies. ”

Mrs. D.B., Lake Forest, Illinois

“I have told many people what a great job Caravan does.”

Ms. D.B., Berlin, New Jersey

“Really enjoyed the raft trip down the river! Hope to take another Caravan tour in the not too distant future. I had a wonderful time on this tour. Caravan should be praised on this tour. If all your tours are like this one, I would never hesitate to go again.”

Mr. & Mrs. J.S., Centereach, New York

Mr. & Mrs. J.P., Martinsville, Virginia

“This is a trip that you don't want to miss.”

Mr. & Mrs. D.M., Satellite Beach, Florida

Mrs. L.B. Windham, Maine

“This was the first time I had traveled by motorcoach on a tour. I did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it very much. We saw a lot and understood what we were seeing due to our TD. He was organized and we were able to see a lot of places as a result. The rafting was super good. I was also moved by the cultural information presented and the history and grandeur of the landscape. We stopped just the right amount of time. First class hotels with clean rooms, pools/spa, breakfast. ”

Mrs. A.S., Naples, Florida

“Beautiful, breathtaking tour! The accommodations were wonderful and located for easy access to shopping. They were very comfortable and clean. Every detail of our creature comforts was taken care of. Perfect photo opportunities with just the right amount of time. Being our first tour, it was a wonderful experience. We loved getting to see so much of God’s beautiful country in a short amount of time. Great information to support what we would be seeing. Highly recommend Caravan! ”

Mrs. J.W., El Paso, Texas

“A fantastic tour, above and beyond expectations. The lighted evening tour of Mount Rushmore was great. The evening show at the ranch was fantastic. The Trail stop was one we will never forget. All personnel were friendly and pleasant a pleasure to be around. Our director went out of her way to make the trip special.”

Mr. R.P., Joliet, Illinois

“This was the best trip I have ever been on. Beautiful scenery and very good historical sites. I have traveled on Caravan tours before, but this was outstanding. The places were spectacular. Driver and guide made the trip very enjoyable. ”

Ms. M. H., Wolfe City, Texas

“A great tour, many of the sites only visited through pictures are brought to life.”

Mr. & Mrs. G.C., Hollywood, Maryland

“This is an outstanding tour of the vast West. It really makes one appreciate the early pioneer history of this country. Our tour guide made this area and its history 'come alive' He was an outstanding guide!”

“This was a great tour. I marvel at how you can offer so much for the price.”

Ms. G.G., Fort Smith, Arkansas

“The Caravan tour guide, the driver, the scenery, and the stops were fantastic. We will travel with Caravan again in the near future and encourage others to do so too.”

Mr.& Mrs. S.T., Citronelle, Alabama

“Our country is beautiful. We strongly recommend Caravan Tours for sightseeing. It is fun meeting new people and not having to watch the road or locate hotels. Thank you again for a very enjoyable trip.”

Mr. & Mrs. S.L., Poinciana, Florida

“I had been thinking of doing a road trip. I am so happy that I chose this Caravan tour instead. I would have never seen all that was included. It was well-planned and appreciated, and the hotel accommodations were extraordinary. Our director’s knowledge of the area and people, along with the history was phenomenal. Baggage handling and registration was greatly appreciated. I am looking forward to another Caravan trip next summer. Thank you for making everything so easy! ”

Ms. N.G., Scranton, Pennsylvania

“Caravan has its act together! Best vacation we ever had. Our first trip, everything was perfect. Outstanding activities. Perfect balance of guided coach rides, rest and sightseeing. Ours had to be the best guide Caravan has. It was truly amazing the knowledge he had for the history of the area. We already booked our next tour to Costa Rica before we could get this message in the mail! ”

Mr. &Ms. M.M Milford, Connecticut

“This tour was great and I loved all the places we went and the things we saw and information we learned. It was well-paced and a very active tour. Long distances can’t be helped in the west though, and the photo stops were amazing and the scenery was beautiful. The accommodations were comfortable and the staff at all locations was friendly and helpful. Very excellent tour, I will take another one. ”

Ms. P.M., Franklin, Tennessee

“I thoroughly enjoyed this first tour and it was mainly because of the tour director making it so fun and interesting. He was a fantastic, courteous, thoughtful and went beyond the call of duty. I learned so much - who knew there was so much land and so much history! ”

Ms. S.W., Brentwood, Tennessee

“This was sixth trip with Caravan, and I find Caravan to be the best organizer and most effective of all companies. So informative and I learned so much more than a history book can tell by being right there and walking on the same ground. Our director talked about so many experiences, making the history and sights come alive. I feel an almost personal connection, and on every trip I’m always talking and encouraging guests to take other trips Caravan has to offer. Thanks once more for a safe and rewarding adventure. ”

Mrs. N.C., Harper, Texas

“This trip exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Usually there is at least one thing that goes amiss on every travel adventure, but nothing on this trip. That speaks to the attention to detail Caravan employs for its customers. I loved everything on this trip. Loved the Oregon trail and Mormon Square. I enjoyed paintings, sculptures, architecture, gardens, and fountains. My husband was somewhat reluctant to go on this vacation, as it was our first guided coach trip. I was rather surprised when a couple of days after we returned home he asked me, ‘where does else does Caravan go?’ That reaction spells success for Caravan. Thank you for a truly memorable, first-rate experience. Rather than a tour director, it seemed like ours was a friend sharing his passion about this beautiful country. I look forward to travelling with Caravan again. ”

Mr. & Mrs. R.S., Winter Springs, Florida

“Thank you for showing us an excellent time. I must again commend your tour director and the driver. They were both exceptional.”

Mr. & Mrs. R.G., Manasquan, New Jersey

“My family enjoyed all that we did in such a short period of time. We would have never been able to do it all on our own. Would definitely do another Caravan tour! ”

Ms. M.T., Freehold, New Jersey

“I would definitely book another tour with Caravan. We feel the value of the trip was well worth the cost. The trip far exceeded my expectations, as I never spoke with anyone who gave us a first hand recommendation. I found your operation on the internet and will certainly tell all my friends about our wonderful experience.”

Mr. & Mrs. D.P., Salem, Massachusetts

“Would recommend our tour director to anyone. He was interested in us learning. He would periodically ask questions and/or quiz us on places we visited. The quizzing kept the tour group interacting with each other which caused everyone to have more fun together. The tour was a good value for the dollar. He was very engaging and caring without being overbearing.”

Mr. J.R., Glen Allen, Virginia

“I have signed up for another Caravan tour in October. You do an outstanding job of giving value for the money. I hope you continue to look for additional trips. I hope to be a regular customer.”

Ms. J.L., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

“We were very happy with the tour. The hotels were great, food was good, photo stops were fantastic. We felt our money was well spent and would not have seen nearly as much on our own. We are considering doing other tours.”

Miss S.S., Warren, Pennsylvania

“For anyone who is in awe of our National Parks, you should go on a Caravan tour to Yellowstone/Mt. Rushmore. The beauty and wildlife of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons take your breath away. The evidence of nature from forest fires to re-growth in Yellowstone is something you can't explain, you have to see it. Not to forget to mention the creation of Mt. Rushmore and what that means to us as Americans, or the awesome work in progress of Crazy Horse monument. Little Big Horn Battlefield was fascinating. So much on the tour is covered so well.”

Mr. & Mrs. J.D., Houston, Texas

“Keep up the good work. I like the eight and nine day tours since I am still working and have limited vacation days.”

Ms. M.H., Elkhart, Indiana

“The hotels were all fine, 'check-ins' and luggage to the room as fast as you would want. The breakfast buffets were more than enough. The sightseeing and activities more than met our expectations on all points. The tour director used a perfect balance of informative talk and quiet time! Utilization of videos to give background or set the tempo was excellent. The trip was all we had hoped to see of this part of the country. Would recommend Caravan to others and I hope to take another trip in the future.”

Mr. & Mrs. E.C., Mount Arlington, New Jersey

“Very enjoyable trip! Friends and memories made to last a lifetime.”

Mr. & Mrs. J.K., Indianapolis, Indiana

“We had a certain amount of trepidation before this guided coach tour. But it was an experience of a lifetime, a joyous and wonderful trip to remember and cherish. We learned so much about our history of this great nation. All the activities were well thought out and interesting. Because of this memorable experience and the graciousness of both director and driver, we are looking forward to another Caravan tour. ”

Mr. & Mrs. M.M., Tucson, Arizona

“All I can say is I’m looking at the brochure to plan my next trip! I was happy because I saw a lot more than I expected to. The hotels exceeded my expectations and their locations were the best. The farewell dinner was an excellent end to a wonderful trip. ”

Mr. A.S., Spring Mills, Pennsylvania

“Loved it, a very busy and ambitious tour, and most sights were outstanding. A good value. Highlights: Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Yellowstone, float trip. The national Trail Center was a pleasant surprise. I had a great time. This group of fellow travelers were punctual and friendly. Can’t ask for much more! ”

Mr. & Mrs. D.D., Concord, California

“We have been on several guided but Caravan has been the best so far. Mt. Rushmore was beautiful. Crazy Horse was great. The river raft was the best! The Tetons were gorgeous. We learned a lot of historical facts and our director was always sweet and cheerful. It ran very smoothly thanks to her preparedness. We would go with Caravan again! ”

Mrs. J.R., Sidney, Ohio

“Outstanding! Beautiful scenery. This was our second Caravan tour. They seem to keep getting better. We are planning to take two next year, Grand Canyon, and New England. ”

Mr. & Mrs. M.M., Friendswood, Texas

“I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. It exceeded my expectations. Wonderful sighting and enjoyed the many stops along the way. Excellent, well-timed stops and most were really spectacular. Even during longer driving periods, our TD entertained us with videos, trivia and general info about conservation, landscape. He really made the trip! Dinner in Salt Lake City was very nice. Our fellow travelers were friendly and courteous, and we had a wonderful driver, I felt safe in his hands. ”

Mrs. J.C., Boca Raton, Florida

“The trip was great. Everyone we came into contact with was very nice. I loved not having to worry about our bags. Enjoyed it all!”

“We had a wonderful trip, met some great people, and will be taking tours more often since this was our first one ever. Thanks Caravan!”

Ms. B.P., Chicago, Illinois

Mrs. N.A.S., Palm Desert, California

“My tour director was very organized. He engaged everybody with games related to the good information about each place we visited, we learned a lot from him. I would like to go with him again.”

Mr. F.M., Palm Desert, California

“Wonderful! We liked everything, but especially the float trip on the Snake River. We learned a lot about history (native Americans, Custer), as well as nature. Our driver and TD worked hard to find wildlife in Yellowstone and were a great team, which goes a long way to making the trip a pleasant one. ”

Mrs. Y.T., Vero Beach, Florida

“Who knew that the best candy around was in Wyoming? We are considering another Caravan trip, but how can you top this tour, director, and driver? I can’t imagine any better. Amazing and very professional. We went places that we never would have gone to if we were on a road trip; and we were happy that we went there. Thanks for the rides to/from the airport. ”

Ms. J.A., Prescott, Arizona

“I was impressed with the selection of activities, hotels and other accommodations as well as the value of this tour. Awesome activities each day without overcrowding days and wearing you out. Awesome selection of sites. The hotels were all amazing, comfortable with great amenities. Buffet style allowed all guests to try terrific local dishes. Will definitely recommend. ”

Mrs. W.I., Montgomery, Alabama

“The hotels were comfortable, clean and had pleasant staff. The sights had a breathtaking scenery; watching animals in their environment was a special treat, and rafting was great fun.

Ms. D.N., Brunswick, Ohio

“This is my second tour with Caravan. I was impressed once again with itinerary, accommodations, tour director, driver and the value. The activities were great. Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Mt. Rushmore were fantastic and must see. Rafting down Snake River was really great. I also enjoyed stopping at Oregon Trail Museum. ”
