Raising the Bar to Enhance Vacation Experiences

Top of Mind with Award-Winning Tour Companies


Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Sept. 8, 2010 ˆ Examining phosphorescent fungi on a log takes on a whole new dimension if there‚s an expert on hand to explain this natural phenomenon. This is just one reason why noted naturalists, professional photographers, authors and others are invited to join specific journeys sponsored by the nine award-winning travel companies in the Trusted Adventures travel alliance.


„Our companies are experiencing pre-recession business levels because they stretch to provide the sparks to create transformational vacation experiences,‰ said Brad Moss, director. ‰Raising the adventure bar with special hosted trip offerings is exciting for guests and hosts alike.‰


Moss explains, „A guest host is an individual who enhances an already stellar leadership team by bringing a unique perspective and learning opportunity to a particular trip. The result is rare opportunity to share a meal, swap stories and interact on a daily basis with an industry icon and true "celebrity" in a special field of expertise.‰


Following is a sampling of alliance members‚ special VIP guest-hosted trips:
