Why Choose a Private Tour?

A trip focused entirely upon your own group is amazing!  What makes a private tour so great?

Want to do things your way? Really stray from the beaten path? Feel like slowing things down (or speeding them up)? Have a few days to travel? All great reasons to go private!

If you value flexibility, in-depth experiences, and personalization – a private tour tailored to you might be the best option.  Additionally, if you have a relatively large group it may be more affordable!

All of our publicly-offered small-group trips are available as private day tours – our offerings also include amazing destinations only offered as private trips (places like the San Juan Islands, Mt. Hood, North Cascades National Park, and the Oregon Coast!)

It’s all about you.

Sharing adventures with your loved ones or the perfect group of friends can make trips unforgettable.

If you’re seeking independence, flexibility, and your own pace or desired travel dates then our private day trips and multi-day adventures are pefect for you!

Travel in your own vehicle, with plenty of space and flexible stops, and a local guide focused on your group.

Choose your pace.

Our trip planning team takes pride in building the best available days in the field for travelers exploring the Pacific Northwest.

Once your private trip begins – your guide is going to include you in the decision making to help push things into the realm of perfection. They’ll explain your options and then deliver!

Start your day earlier or later than we generally might to fit your schedule.  Travel on a day that we don’t offer a set-departure public trip to the destination of your choice.

Flexible pickup location options.

Our public trips generally have legally-restricted pickup zones.  Private trips don’t!  See our tour pickup location details.

Washington State tour pickup locations might include Seattle, Bellevue, SeaTac, Tacoma, Redmond, Everett, Anacortes, Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Ashford, Olympia, Aberdeen, Forks, Kirkland, Kent, Bainbridge Island, and Vancouver, WA (for Portland, OR tour offerings).

Oregon State tour pickup locations include Portland, Beaverton, Hood River, Salem, Eugene, Vancouver, WA, and more!

Please don’t hesitate to inquire about your location if you’re not staying in downtown Seattle, WA or Portland, OR.

Personalized itinerary?

Does adding a local winery sound good? Want to spend all day on the best trail possible? Prefer to control your budget by paying for meals yourself? It’s all possible! We want to do things your way so we’ll assist you in adding or subtracting the pieces that speak to your group!

Don’t worry about a thing.  Let us work our magic.

OK, so you’ve made it this far down our list and you’re still worried about getting stuck with a perfect stranger robotically rattling off facts, history, and nature stories that you just aren’t interested in…

Our guides are amazing – there’s no other way to say it. They’re at their very best when they can tailor a trip to you!
We’ll encourage them to sprinkle in secret highlights, moments of solitude, and their own trail wisdom to blow your mind.  Better still, they’re going to learn about you and your hopes for the day and adapt for you.

Leave all of the hassel of organizing and planning to us so you can enjoy quality time with your family and friends..
