Will I have individual time with the Senior Tour Specialist to ask questions?
We have three guides and a driver on each tour. The Senior Tour Specialist is completely free of distraction to focus specifically on your needs. The flora, fauna and human history are all important to communicate as well as hearing the stories of the region that only local insight can offer.
Is every Experience Park Tours a Photography Tour, and if so, why should I be excited to choose this tour?
All of our Senior Guides at Experience Park Tours are longtime landscape and wildlife photographers. They each have a decorated history of capturing our National Parks behind the lens. Some are published and others have their work celebrated in galleries all across America. We believe that a photographer has a unique perspective on the region they are guiding, and choosing guides who can clearly communicate that value to our guests in a caring and thoughtful way is key in our selection process.
What if photography is not as important to me?
Our small groups are filled with multiple levels of interest when it comes to taking pictures. We create a very malleable experience so that those that want to maximize the light and time in the field behind the lens are able to do so. For those who value a relaxed pace of travel and don’t put a value on the photography piece are not in any way left out. This is why we have multiple guides on each tour. Some may venture with the photography guide while others may stay close to the Limo Liner. Still others may choose to spend more time independently. It is your vacation, and we create an itinerary to accommodate your individual needs.
Is alcohol included and served on the Limo Liner?
Yes alcohol is made available to those who want to drink responsibly. Experience Park Tours is highly sensitive to how guests consume alcohol and this is monitored very closely. Alcohol served on the Limo Liner is included in your all-inclusive price as are all refreshments made available while on your tour.

We have all ages and all levels of activity on our tours. We have strategically crafted each tour so that the most active and even the most leisure travelers can get the most value for their vacation. Your pre-tour traveler profile form will help us understand how to best meet your needs while on the tour. This flexibility has created countless opportunities for our guests to travel with multiple generations in their families.
