“This is a trip of a lifetime made accessible to almost everyone. A beautiful mix of being in the wilderness without fully roughing it. I recommend this trip to anyone who is looking to experience the breathtaking beauty of American wilderness without having to be outdoor experts!

— Grace S. MT Sobek Guest | Idaho Middle Fork of the Salmon River

This was a wonderful experience. The river and surrounding wilderness were beautiful. Life was made simpler – the only task was to enjoy the river and each other. Guides were a big part of making that possible. They kept us well-fed, comfortable, entertained, and safe. The group was an unexpected bonus. It was a trip of a lifetime.”

The Dead Sea was a great way to end the trip! The guides let their love for their country shine through and it made us all feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing adventure! I’ve been to dozens of foreign countries, but Jordan has become one of my favorites!”

Hear from one of our past solo travelers, Jessica!

“Meeting people is a big part of why I love travel, and one of the best ways I’ve found to make connections with like-minded wanderers has been by joining a small group trip. I enjoy the security of knowing the major details are taken care of. I don’t have to worry about finding a ride to the hotel or trying to navigate the airport in a jetlagged haze—I know that everything will be ready and waiting for me when I arrive I’ve found that my guides are dedicated to making solo travelers like me feel part of the group from the very first day.

After all, they’re usually solo travelers themselves and getting to know them has been one of the highlights of my trips. They’re usually charismatic, natural storytellers with a ready joke, piece of advice, or bit of encouragement exactly when you need it. I’ve known some of my guides for so long that I’ve watched as they’ve fallen in love, had kids, and done some epic exploring of their own.”
