Grand Teton

Snake River Float Trip Through Grand Teton National Park

This gentle 10-mile float trip runs entirely within Grand Teton National Park, and covers the most scenic stretch of the Snake River in the Jackson Hole Valley. The Snake River is a lifeline to the park’s bison, elk, moose, beaver, pronghorn, deer, bear and 300 different species of birds, including osprey and eagles. Your experienced guide offers in-depth information on the geology of the Grand Tetons and the habitats of the animals you may see. Although we can’t guarantee multiple animal sightings, your chances of spotting wildlife on the Snake River – with its lush willows to feed on and deep-water pools for animals to swim in – are greater here than anywhere else in the park. Operates late May – mid Sep, subject to weather conditions. Approx. duration: 3 hours
Adult Price: $89

Rapid City

Mount Rushmore Evening Lighting Ceremony

Join a park ranger at Mount Rushmore’s outdoor amphitheater for this moving patriotic program and sculpture lighting ceremony. The program begins with a short inspirational talk, focusing on the presidents, patriotism and the nation’s history, and is followed by a 20 minute film, “Freedom: America’s Lasting Legacy.” Watch in wonder as the evening culminates in the slow exposure of light to the monument until it is fully illuminated. Be sure to bundle up as the evenings can be cool. Approx. duration: 1 hour
Adult Price: $25

Black Hills

Badlands National Park Excursion

Badlands National Park in southwest South Dakota preserves 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest protected mixed grass prairie in America. Without a doubt, a hidden gem in the national park system, the unique beauty of the Badlands landscape is like no other. Sightseers as well as scholarly scientists are attracted to the area for its astounding beauty and the opportunity to peek into an ancient world. And no trip to the Badlands would be complete without a stop at famous Wall Drug. An establishment which became known for offering free ice water to thirsty travelers in the 1930s is today one of the top roadside attractions in the country. Approx. duration: 3 hours
Adult Price: $40

It was very easy to book with our Travel Specialist at Grand European Travel!! The Travel Specialist answered all of my questions. The updating emails kept us well informed and ready for our tour!!!
Vacation
This was a fabulous tour!! There were challenges with the snow and ice in Yellowstone that kept us from entering, but our Tour Director did a fabulous job of switching things around so that we got to experience even more of the wonders of the area! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone. The Pow Wow was mind blowing!!

The visit to Yellowstone had to be cancelled because of foul weather. The roads into the Park were snow covered and icy for two + days. It was a disappointment for many on the Tour. The Tour was made by many with the anticipation of seeing Yellowstone. Other than the Yellowstone disappointment, the other stops, sights, and history was excellent. Two improvements ………… Name tags for everyone. Trafalgar said, because their tags were plastic, there were no name tags. To remember everyone's name and location was difficult without name tags. Improved communication …………..Trafalgar to cut down on paper and copy costs tried to communicate with all announcements and updates through word of mouth. With everyone on the Tour, having cell phones, it would make sense to try Emails and Texts for important announcements so they are not missed or misunderstood.

Kaitlin Fitzpatrick was very helpful in booking our National Parks Wonders tour, and the trip was absolutely outstanding. Even the weather was great! The itinerary was excellent, as were the hotels and meals throughout the trip. Our tour guide, Kristin Jenn, was very extremely knowledgeable about the sites visited, and her fun personality and excellent organizational skills made everything run like clockwork. Hal, our coach driver, was very pleasant and friendly too, and a very capable driver. We absolutely loved this trip.
Vacation
We saw so many beautiful sites, and so many different types of animals, so it made this trip really special. We were especially impressed with Yellowstone, and the Buffalo Bill Cody museum, and of course Mount Rushmore and The Crazy Horse monument were breathtaking. It was just a fabulous trip, which I highly recommend every time I get the chance.

They were very professional and attentive - yes I would recommend them to others. There was a situation where they failed to respond in a timely manor due to personnel being unavailable without sufficient procedures to compensate or the rating would have been a 5.

Very organized and planned out. Guide communication was detailed and precise. Teamwork between driver and guide was superb in spite of the fact it was the first time they worked together. They both went the extra mile.
