One trip…three parks. Your own private custom trip that is fully escorted by our guides. They are the absolute best in the business. And with them, you’ll experience what are arguably the three most important parks in the entire National Park system.

Yosemite

In 1864 the Yosemite Grant became a reality thanks to visionaries such as John Muir and Frederick Law Olmstead; this set the stage for the eventual creation of the US National Park system. Yosemite’s overwhelming beauty—a stunning combination of gorges, cliffs, valleys, meadows, waterfalls and wilderness once inspired a park ranger to say, “I’d weep” when asked what he would do if he had only one day to visit Yosemite Valley.

Yellowstone

The nation’s (and world’s) first ever national park, established in 1872. Its 2+ million acres enclose a collapsed volcano crater 45 by 30 miles, hundreds of geysers, hot springs and other thermal features, alpine lakes, vast forests and deep canyons. It is often referred to as ‘America’s Serengeti’ for its diversity of wildlife.

Grand Canyon

A mile-deep gorge up to 18 miles wide from which the Hopis say the first people emerged from the underworld, and where the Colorado River has exposed rocks that are 1.7 billion years old. Upon seeing it for the first time President Theodore Roosevelt said, “…it has a natural wonder which, so far as I know, is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the word … leave it as it is. You cannot improve upon it …”

How to see it all on one trip? We suggest using private jet to make the most of your precious time. Start by flying into Fresno, CA where our driver-guide will pick you up. You’ll have your choice of 5-star or 4-star accommodation options while you spend 3 days touring Yosemite.

Two of the highlights – a private walking tour of the Mariposa Grove of Giants, the largest living things on earth, and a private tour of Yosemite Valley in the company of ‘John Muir’; our guide has played John Muir at Yosemite for more than two decades. He will be in full costume and character.

Then you’ll fly from Fresno to the Grand Canyon Airport, where you’ll be met by one of our guides for a walking and hiking tour of the South Rim and lunch at El Tovar Hotel, and a visit to a closed to the public wing of the Kolb Brothers Studio. You’ll then fly to Page, AZ and be transferred to a luxurious boutique resort. Next day, you’ll float the Colorado River near Glen Canyon, attend a private dinner with a Navajo storyteller, and more.

Then you’ll fly to Jackson, WY for private guided tours of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, a wooden boat float trip on the Snake River, hot air balloon ride, morning wildlife drive with a professional photographer … these are just a few of the possibilities. You’ll witness some of the most magnificent scenery and wildlife our planet has to offer. And you’ll do it in style while in the company of our experts who love to show you their ‘hood.’
