Absolutely Amazing Tours and Owners!!! Awesome tour with Paul! Because of lots of snow we thought we would have to miss seeing Sequoia and Kings Canyon but an all day tour with Paul saved our trip. He was a wonderful tour guide, very knowledgeable, entertaining and showed us things we would have never seen on our own.

What You'll See and Do
Our diverse Kings Canyon itinerary is the complete package, bringing together the expansive trees that the area is known for, with additional geological marvels and alluring natural features. We believe that tours should be interactive experiences and want you to get the most out of your time, so there are multiple opportunities to get off the vehicle, walk around, and capture the day through beautiful pictures. Whether you’re the more adventurous and looking to fully explore every feature, or you would rather enjoy a calm and quiet moment surrounded by the tranquility of the open natural space, our tours take all ability levels into account.
During our Kings Canyon National Park Tour, we will make a stop at the Grant Grove visitor center. This is the perfect introduction to your tour, featuring informative displays about the trifecta of natural wonders you’ll experience throughout the day: the giant sequoias, the canyonlands and the breathtaking mountain views of the High Sierra. Later you’ll be able to admire the monumental stature of the General Grant Tree, the third-largest tree on the planet, proclaimed the “Nation’s Christmas Tree” by President Calvin Coolidge and the only living national shrine and declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Delight in the grandeur of the Canyon, as you learn about its geological significance and find yourself suddenly feeling quite small. During our stops at Grizzly Falls and Roaring River Falls, be soothed by the sound of rushing water in these lush wild spaces. When we reach the Zumwalt Meadow, let it’s tranquility take over as you gaze at idyllic wildflowers, mountain ranges, and shades of green all around you.
During our summer tours, we’ll take a break for a delicious picnic lunch. You’ll have a choice of 4 delicious sandwiches, cookie, chips, and fruit – locally prepared fresh each day.
We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality tours in the area with experienced and knowledgeable guides.

A perfect day, fun and sooo informative! HIGHLY recommended! It was just an all-around informative and truly fascinating experience. This all day tour was exactly what we hoped it would be.
Very knowledgeable tour and friendly guide. My family had a tour with Paul who took us to Kings Canyon. It was a lovely tour, Paul was very knowledgeable and friendly, and helped make it a great day. It was well worth the money and a wonderful way to see King’s Canyon.
