6 Reasons to try a small group tour in North America (as an American)

A small group tour is one of the best ways to get under the skin of North America. Here are just a few of the reasons why.


Uncover hidden gems

Expect the unexpected as you discover some of the hidden gems of North America on our small group tours. From spotting unusual wildlife in Alaska to seeing the sunrise over the rocky hoodoo spires of Bryce Canyon, we’ll surprise you with spectacular viewpoints and immersive experiences that you’re unlikely to find on your own. Even with thorough research and planning, nothing beats the insight of a local guide when it comes to getting under the skin of an epic national park and absorbing the local culture. 

Join like-minded adventurers

Enjoy the company of up to eleven other explorers as you discover North America on our small group tours. These trips provide solo travelers with the opportunity to travel independently but with the security of a group, and friends or partners will revel in meeting new like-minded travelers. Join a sociable road-tripping adventure on our Best of the American West tour, and never feel alone as you hike through the Canadian Rockies

Follow an expert guide

From pointing out interesting botanicals along the remote walking paths of Jasper National Park in Canada to revealing some of the best and less well-known views over the steep silver mountains of Yosemite National Park, our tour guides will divulge all of their expert local knowledge with you throughout your North America trip. They’ll share fascinating stories, answer your questions and pull the group together for some socially-distanced fun and interaction.

Book with confidence

In these uncertain times, you may feel anxious about booking a trip to North America, but we have a flexible booking policy to guarantee peace of mind. You can amend your tour booking up to ten days before the start date; either swap your booking to another holiday, or postpone your trip to a later date. Please see our Book with Confidence Promise for more information.

Avoid travel stress

One of the best reasons to book a small group tour with a dedicated tour leader is that you won’t need to worry about logistics. For example, our Best of the American West trip is a jam-packed eight-night adventure that passes through six national parks, all of which require permits and have varied Covid restrictions, which we are constantly monitoring. With a busy itinerary, there’s no time to waste, but our carefully-planned and researched routes ensure you spend less time researching and more time taking it all in. 

Travel safely

Find quiet corners of Alberta's Icefields Parkway or go beyond the beaten track in Alaska’s Denali National Park under the expert guidance of a knowledgeable local guide. Explore Tour Leaders know these sparsely populated corners of North America like the back of their hand and are trained to make your trip as safe as possible. Furthermore, we always adhere to the latest government COVID-19 guidelines, and if we need to adapt the trip as a result, we endeavor to minimize the impact on your journey. Please see our Travel with Confidence Policy for more information.
