Just got home from the Utah tour of the National Parks. Had a lot of fun, great group of folks to travel with, and tour guides Barb and David did an excellent job!  Professional, kept us busy, made sure everyone had a great experience. The sunset and star gazing at Arches was incredible!!  Thanks Marie for your awesome trip planning. Nice hotels, great beds, and great restaurants. Already have 3 long trips in mind and can hardly wait to go again!!!

Love, love, love the trip to New Orleans , Cajun country and plantations.  Just got back from the longest tour I have taken with Exploration Tours.  It exceeded my expectations of the all the places we visited, the tour guides along the way and accommodations.  Amber, our driver was amazing along with Marie who went the extra mile to make sure we were all taken care of and happy.  Loved the history and southern culture.

Just got back from my first ever, bus tour with Exploration Tours. Honestly, wasn’t sure how I would like it… but I sure had a great time. So nice to sit back, not do the driving and enjoy the amazing scenery from WA to Pasadena, CA. Made new friends and I was very impressed with the historical stops. So much depth to the tour and not those tourists traps! Happy to report I look forward to traveling with your company again.
