Let us Share our Passion for Adventure with You

About Us

Family Owned

We are a small family owned company, with over a decade of experience in the travel planning business. Our mission at Wild West Vacations and Travel is to provide our clients with the highest level of service possible. We will strive to create positive lifelong memories that reflect and maintain the beauty of our favorite parts of this country, while making every effort to limit the costs and stress to our clients.

Love for Adventure

Our love of the Wild West dates back to our adventurous father, who whisked us away on family vacations through out the West since our birth. Mom provided us with a companion to all places other than the west and our love for travel was solidified. From past to present, as a family, we’ve ventured from many places on American soil, all the way to Japanese bullet trains. We have a strong understanding of the stress involved in travel plans and from our experiences we have created a stress-free way of sending you throughout the Wild West.

A Personalized Vacation

Whether it be panning for gold in a stream bed, getting up close and personal with the rocky mountains on a trail ride, or enjoying an authentic chuck wagon cookout, Wild West Vacations and Travel vacations offer a step back in time and a glimpse of pure untamed natural beauty. If you want to dig in the dust for dinosaur bones, get soaked on a white water trip or simply relax on the front porch of a secluded log cabin, our one-on-one personalization allows us to customize vacations to your tastes.

What you get with a Wild West Vacation:

Local Insight

We live and play in all of our destinations. All of our accommodations and activities are based on personal experience. We have scouted out the trail for you – we know the watering holes, the best places to bunk down for the night, where to get excellent grub, and the best way to pass time on the ride. We are lucky to consider the Wild West as our personal playground that continues to provide unbelievable sights and adventures year after year.

Personal Attention

We love to interact with our clients. We take the time to learn about your personal interests, special needs, time table and preferences before we even send out a quote. Your interests and our local knowledge allow us to create an unforgettable adventure tailored to your wants and needs. You and your family are the most important aspect of your vacation, and we take care of you through every stage of planning. Your safety and peace of mind is our number one concern.

Customer Service

We are available to you 24 hours a day. Our business is a passion that we want to share with you, any time of the day. Before your vacation starts, the more questions you have the better! During your vacation, its incredibly important that you can get a hold of us if you feel you need to. From flight delays to the best place to get a piece of pecan pie, we are here for you every step of the way.


Your vacation is your own. Your vacation is expertly planned with detailed directions, itinerary and recommendations, but you are behind the wheel. This allows you to go at your own pace, stop when you need to and make adjustments on the fly. Your vacation is based on your schedule. There is no bus to catch, no rigid schedule to follow, and no large group with competing demands.


We have spent incredible amounts of time and effort building relationships with every hotel, guide, or company we work with. Our Wild West family provides an invaluable network of people waiting to serve you when you arrive. We strive for each interaction to be a positive one, from your first check-in to your last check-out.


The memories you take with you will last a lifetime. We not only want those memories to be good ones, we also want them to be important ones. We hope after your vacation to the Wild West that you and your family have a greater appreciation for the lands and cultures you came across.


While we've put a lot of time into planning great packages, we also know YOU have unique interests and ideas. We want to include what's important to you - whether it's kayaking, hiking, museums, or even a day of downtime and relaxing!


We have a strong understanding of the financial stress involved in travel planning. We custom design each vacation so that you can make the most out of your time and money while traveling in the Wild West.


Our goal is to help you learn about conserving our national parks, preserving Native American history, supporting local agriculture and promoting sustainability! These are all essential parts of the Wild West Experience!
