Travel Trade

Recently we hosted a colleague from one of the industry’s most reputable luxury travel companies.  She had this to say about her experience on our Mt. Rainier Tour, “I didn’t think I could pay for an experience like that, today I found out that I could.”

We want to personally invite you to present our high-end, immersive, and meaningful adventures to your valued clients. We work closely with members of the travel trade to design and operate guided multi-day journeys, in-depth self-drive itineraries, and private or small group day tours from our offices in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco. Our goal is to help you create a memorable trip for your clients that highlights the best natural wonders, boutique wineries, urban enchantments, and outstanding accommodations of our remarkable destinations!

Please complete our online Escape Questionnaire or call us toll-free at (866) 203-7603 so that we can start planning a personalized trip that matches your client’s interests, travel preferences, and budget.

The Q&A on partnering with Evergreen Escapes

Q:  Who are you?

A: We are a premier tour operator and destination management company that designs and operates journeys across Northern California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alberta. We are experts at providing immersive and educational tours that blend our region’s natural beauty, wildlife, culture, and culinary bounty into intimate and memorable travel experiences. Whether our guests join us for only a few hours or a two week trip, we realize that the guides make all of the difference and we employ only the very best in the business. We also believe that comfort and trust are crucial to truly escaping your everyday, which is why we deliver hand-crafted itineraries, luxury Mercedes vans and SUVs, great food and wine, and special touches like French-press coffee and pastries in the morning. We endeavor to provide an exceptional guest experience each and every day, and to that end, our guest-to-guide ratio is never more than 10 to 1, often even smaller.  Each of our Escape Artist Naturalist Guides are experts in their respective fields and are enchanting storytellers that offer a “thematic-interpretation” style of guiding. We like to take our clients deeper into the places we explore together and find that our region is best experienced with an in-depth, educational, and natural approach to guiding.

Q: Where is Cascadia and where are you located?

A: Cascadia is the name of the bio-region that stretches from British Columbia to Northern California, a true adventure capital of the world. We are spoiled by majestic mountains, distinguished wine regions, rugged coastlines, world-class urban centers, and regional cuisines influenced by the both the sea and our rich local produce. While Cascadia is where we started, we now design tours as far south as Big Sur in California and as far northeast as Alberta and the Canadian Rockies. Our Headquarters are located at The Adventure Hub & Winery in Seattle, Washington and we have Base Camps in both Portland and San Francisco. We operate daily, year round, rain, snow or shine!

Q: Do you pay commission or offer a net rate?

A: Yes, we provide our friends in the retail travel space a commission of 10% on all our tour products. If you are an OTA, receptive or wholesale tour operator and are interested in a more meaningful, strategic partnership, please inquire.

Q: How long is your current tariff good for?

A: Our current tariff is good through December 31st, 2016. We will be releasing our 2017/18 Tariff in the Summer of 2016. Please inquire for further details.

Q: Do you offer private travel for FIT & Groups?

A: Our fixed small group departures are fantastic, but tailoring guided journeys is what we do best. We are happy to help you design a custom trip or a private day tour for clients that are interested in a high-touch, personalized experience.  We can customize our programs for group sizes ranging from 1 to 50, maintaining a guest-to-guide ratio of 10:1. We will consider managing larger groups by request.

Q:  Which hotels do you have relationships with?

A: We carefully vet all of our partners and have relationships with most of our regions’ top hotels, inns, ranches and wilderness lodges. Please see “The Cascadia Collection“for a comprehensive sample of the accommodations with which we work.

Q:  Where do your tours depart and end?  Do you offer complimentary pick-up & drop-off?

A: Our small group tours offer door-to-door service to downtown hotels in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco and downtown meeting points for those staying outside of the downtown area. Private tours have additional flexibility for pick-up and drop-offs. Please inquire for details.

Q: How do we make reservations?

A: Please send your small group day tour booking requests via email.  For private escapes, including both guided and self-drive itineraries, please feel free to call us at 866-203-7603, send us an email, or complete our Escape Questionnaire, and we will follow up within 24 hours during the week and up to 48 hours if your email is sent over the weekend.
