DETOURS Professional Guide Team

By definition, a tour guide interprets the cultural and natural heritage of an area-specific location. DETOURS professional guides go beyond the standard practice of knowing their immediate area and are intimately familiar with other tour destinations throughout the American West. With a wide knowledge base and the personal experience of touring to these destinations, our professional guides take great pride in showcasing the amazing destinations throughout the American West. Some of the best viewpoints or unique local experiences cannot be read about from a travel book and it is our intention to facilitate these highly personal experiences during your guided tour.  

DETOURS tour guides come from a varying array of backgrounds including teachers, archaeologist, historians and adventure guides but they all have one thing in common: a passion for travel and exploration. In total, our guides have amassed over a hundred years of professional guiding experience ensuring you and your guests the most a first class (and fun!) personal guided experience. Through continuous training and ever expanding knowledge, our guides go above and beyond making the most of every destination. Simply put - DETOURS guides are the best of the best!
