Visit our country’s greatest natural treasures on this excellently paced and in-depth National Parks tour. Vantage travelers have raved about this classic trip for more than 30 years — and one of the points they heartily agree upon is that it’s impossible to duplicate the vast open spaces of the American West!

Discover the U.S.’s wonderful national parks in the Continental Divide as you journey from the jagged peaks, verdant forests, and cascading waterfalls of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons to the unmatched splendor of the Grand Canyon and the red-rock formations at Bryce Canyon. Along the way, our Cultural Discoveries will unveil Native American history and take you inside Sacajawea’s history with Lewis & Clark with a special talk by Old West expert and author Ken Thomasma. Join us for a comprehensive American West experience that’s not to be missed!
