  • Be My Guest Take a tour of Swore Farms and learn where and how crops are grown followed by a lunch in the greenhouse.
  • Lunch at Swore Farms Welcome to family owned and operated, Swore Farms! Our Mission: to enrich the community through healthy, delicious, fresh produce grown right here on the farm; educate children and youth through summer programs; and offer opportunities for quality family fun late summer through fall as they play in the corn maze & pumpkin patch and learn about agriculture. Our guests will be welcomed by Wendy. Wendy S Swore lives on a farm with a corn maze and a pumpkin patch where she raised her five kids, a dog, two geese, seven peacocks, eleven ducks, nineteen cats and two hundred thirty seven chickens. She farms in the summers, writes in the winter and would rather chew her leg off than eat something spicy. Mike & Wendy Swore have owned the farm for over 20 years. A 3rd generation farmer, Mike also works at the Farm Bureau as a Computer Network Tech. While Mike works in town Wendy cares for their 5 children and runs the farm while also being an award-winning author. Truly a family run operation, the Swore kids work on the farm every day alongside their parents. Mike parents, Jerry & Janiel Swore, are also invaluable assets and can often be seen working in the farm as well. Our experience will revolve around a tour of the farm to learn where and how crops are grown, what machines are used for, and a walk through the greenhouse. The tour will be followed by a lunch in the greenhouse. Along the way, guests will learn a bit more about Wendy, how she's managed to jungle handling a farm, raising 5 children and becoming an award-winning author. Takeaway Gift: a copy of The Wish & The Peacock -written by Wendy and listed as one of 2020's best Children's books of the year and is the first runner up to the 2020 Idaho Book of the Year. The story is written about a farm family that lives on the reservation and it offers a more in depth look into the lives of Wendy, her family and their love for the farm and this rural way of life.

Available on Day 2

Jackson Aerial Tramway Ticket

In just 12 minutes, the Aerial Tram glides skyward 4,139 vertical feet. The summit offers staggering 360-degree views of the Tetons, Jackson Hole valley and surrounding mountain ranges. The "Top of the World" provides amazing access to a plethora of great hiking and running trails, climbing, and the occasional snowball fight.

Adult Price: $44

Grand Canyon

Available on Day 8

Grand Discovery Air Tour South Rim - 45 Min. Fixed-Wing Aircraft

Experience the grandeur of the Grand Canyon South Rim on a fascinating aerial tour. Once onboard the state-of-the-art touring aircraft with high wings and quiet technology, sit back and get ready to enjoy the thrill of incredible scenery this Natural Wonder has to offer. You'll fly over the Kaibab National Forest, Kaibab Plateau, Confluence of Colorado, Little Colorado River, Imperial Point, and Zuni Corridor. All seats provide unobstructed views for sightseeing and photography. This Grand Discovery tour is perfect for families and individuals who have limited time yet wish to enjoy all of the Grand Canyon's beauty.
Adult Price: $174

Grand Kingdom - 40 Min. EcoStar Helicopter

See the absolute best views the Grand Canyon has to offer on this 40-50 minute aerial sightseeing adventure. Settle into a state-of-the-art helicopter built especially for sightseeing, and off you go! As you soar across the canyon rim, watch as the bottom seemingly drops out from under your feet. You'll gaze deep into the very core of the canyon over 5,000 feet down to the dramatic confluence of the Little Colorado River. You will then drift past Imperial Point - a rugged spire standing alone near the North Rim of the Canyon. Flying at the same altitude as the North Rim, you may feel you can reach out and touch the canyon walls. It's an up-close and personal perspective only a helicopter can provide! The North Rim is a vastly different climate and supports plant and animal life not present at the drier South Rim. You'll then head back to Grand Canyon South Rim via the Dragon Corridor, another of the Grand Canyon's most picturesque sections. If you want the most scenic views from the most impressive heights, this is the helicopter tour for you.
Adult Price: $349

North Canyon Tour - 25-30 Min. Helicopter Flight

Enjoy a memorable helicopter experience over the southern and northern rims of the Grand Canyon. After flying over the Kaibab National Forest, you will enter the Dragon Corridor - the deepest and widest part of the Grand Canyon. Marvel at the canyon's legendary beauty through the specially-designed oversized windows of your helicopter. Have your camera ready to capture the colorful stone walls and sweeping vistas surrounding you. Fly over the mighty Colorado River toward the canyon's rugged North Rim and soar along with rock formations, including the Tower of Ra and Vishnu Schist. Guests can only capture these phenomenal aerial sights via helicopter.

From the moment we talked to our GET travel agent on the phone for the first time, we had absolutely every question answered and never had to worry about our trip again. My first reaction at seeing the price for our trip out west was “wow, that’s a lot of money!” But after sitting down with my calculator and working out a similar trip … flying in, hotel costs, gas costs, etc …. I realized I was getting a pretty good deal! The best part? We just packed our bags, then showed up where / when GET told us to. I didn’t have to spend my time concentrating on driving and/or getting to places on time. They did it all. The trip itself was carried out by their sister company, Trafalgar. It was excellent from start to finish! It was evident that they’ve done this many times in the past. We’re ready (and booked) to take another with them! Side note: During our trip, a few fellow travelers got sick. We had a wellness director who very efficiently and quickly helped them. Some had to leave the tour. But the tour director made sure they were housed, set up with a rental car, synced with a flight home, and given food vouchers to compensate for the days they had to miss. Then all the remaining travelers were routinely reminded to wash hands, and socially distance in order to keep the rest of us well.

We successfully booked our trip but due to Covid19, we didn't actually do the trip until Sept/Oct 2021. when GET rebooked our return flight, they errored on the departure time from Las Vegas on the day we were to depart so we had to spend the night in Las Vegas and depart the following day. GET paid for the hotel room but we had to pay out of pocket room taxes of $50.00 and food costs. We were not happy about having to spend the extra night in Las Vegas.
Vacation
We were told that the trip would have maximum 24 people and it turned out to be a bus full at 48 people. All of our fellow travelers were patient and kind but restroom stops and viewing stops were longer because we had to get so many people on and off the bus each time.The Parks we visited were scenically spectacular and our travel director and bus driver did a great job of getting us where we needed to be.

Prior to our trip, we were always kept informed of any changes or required paperwork, so we were well prepared for our trip
Vacation
Well, overall, we saw some breathtaking sights. The tour director, Pam, was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Also, we enjoyed Adrian, our bus driver! We had a good group of people on our trip, which contributed to the overall good feeling throughout our travels. We were disappointed in the food choices, however. Given that it was the end of the season and many places had already closed, it became a little tedious to always be eating a cold sandwich or salad outside a grocery store, or sitting on a rock, or on a bench inside a store trying to balance food & drinks on our laps while shoppers walked past. One night we just stayed in our room & ordered pizza because the walk to the restaurants was too far for us to manage. A 45 minute wait for the pizza. The 3 planned dinners were very nice! We also enjoyed the little side trips, videos & music play list that added some local color to our days.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your valuable feedback. We will be sure to share this with the team. We are so pleased to see that you enjoyed your trip overall and hope to see you again soon!

Most of the hotels were acceptable but Gray Wolf was not. The included meals were ok but several times the coach pulled into a parking lot and we were told to go find some lunch. The actual sites visited were good but generally not enough time. On the shorter stops those on the rear of the bus lost 7 or so minute out of a 20 minute allocation. My suggestion is that every other time the bus be emptied from the back first. One major gripe I have is that American Airlines cancelled on of there flights to Jackson so we had to come in a day early so we did not miss the meet and greet.Those that arrived on the designated day were given a voucher to get from the airport to the hotel but we were told we would not get the same courtesy.. I see no logic in this and would ask that we be compensated for the $40 charge to get into town
