Quote of the Month

What I admire about Columbus is not his having discovered a world,

but his having gone to search for it on the faith of an opinion.

Cherokee Nation Culture Tour                 NEW!

Explore their tribal history, their role in the Civil War, and meet luminaries of the tribe such as Sequoyah, who invented a unique syllabary for their own language and Will Rogers, one of the most popular American entertainers of all time, who never met a man he didn't like!

Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup

Ever since park rangers started rounding up some 1,500 head of buffalo each fall for the annual branding, sorting and vaccinating, visitors have been fascinated by this Old West tradition. You'll enjoy a prime viewing location as these pre-historic beasts rumble by, and priority admission to the corral and vendors area.


In addition to the Roundup, this six day hub-and-spoke itinerary offers customary Indian Summer weather, beautiful Black Hills scenery and popular attractions including Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Badlands National Park, Wall Drug, the 1880 train, Tatanka, and historic Deadwood.

Bleeding Kansas:  Where the Civil War Began NEW!
October 15-22, 2011


Territorial KansasThis unique learning adventure explores the issues that threatened the delicate balance of America's "peculiar institution", when free-soilers fought to enter the union as a free state and pro-slavers sought to extend slavery into the territories.

Historians and re-enactors lend insights to the sights on the border between Kansas and Missouri where the Missouri Compromise came unraveled, and the seeds of civil war took root.

Enjoy six nights in an all-suites hotel property including daily hot breakfast and evening hospitality reception. Tour begins and ends in Kansas City, Missouri.

Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.
