  • When we signed up for the tour all we knew was that we were going to Alaska. Adventure Caravans made this trip, for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was leave in the morning and be in the next campground by a certain time. We enjoyed every facet of the tour from the log meetings and socials to the tours and our free time. Kudos to the wagon masters and the Penny and Tom. The icing on the cake are the wonderful friends that we made and know we will keep in touch. The camaraderie among the whole group was amazing but the trip left us with memories for a lifetime. Thank you Adventure Caravans.

We appreciate their flexibility and good humor.” “The new friends who made this entire journey with us and all the people we talked with along the way are treasures.” “We did and saw so much in the time we had and there is so much more that we were made aware of. It was everything I had hoped and more.”

  • “We had a great trip. We went to many places & shows that we wouldn’t have done on our own. The Wagonmasters & Tailgunners were great! They went beyond the call of duty with all the great food, campfires, socials, etc!”
    Steve & Pat Fuchs
  • “The things we did and what we saw in New York City were amazing! It was a great experience!”
    Kathy & George Snyder

    Jim & Barbara Gutmann
  • “Four star, a wonderful time, we did so much, saw so much and made at least three couples as life-long friends.”
    Monte & Linda Toon
  • I must say it was way beyond my wildest dreams and thoughts of South Africa. First of all, I have to say that the people were exceptional. They were beautiful not only in looks, their beauty was in everything they did for us. They were so happy to talk with us and question us about America. They all would love to come over here to visit but said they knew they would never be able to afford the trip. I was overwhelmed with the young children and their attitude toward us. They laughed, smiled and waved to us all along the highways on their way to school. I have to admit, I was so proud of how they were dressed and their pride. Our American children have so much and appreciate it so little.
    Carole & Len Adams
  • “Everything was great!”
