Just got back from the Western Dream, I did a lot of research into what to expect and looked forward to this trip for over a year, I had high expectations. They were exceeded at every level! Tim our tour guide was fantastic, great taste in music and all :) I had a fantastic time, the hikes were amazing, the camping was spectacular and the whole experience was more than I expected. Tim's knowledge of and passion for the local geology and environment added a lot to the experience a genuinely nice guy who bent over backwards to make it a great trip, when a trip opens with the Grand Canyon its a hard ask to top it each day but this one did and then some. Anyone with a bit of get up and go in them not wanting to be pampered but actually get out and see the fantastic national parks the US has to offer should do one of these tours, I will certainly be back for more.

Had a fantastic day trip to Lapland. Can't recommend it enough. All of the activities were brilliant, and all of the staff we encountered were professional, courteous, but most importantly fun. It's great value for money.
