Custom Trips

Expeditions By Design

Don’t see a convenient departure date?

It only takes a few friends to form a custom group! If you want your own private whitewater trip, with as few as 6-8 friends, family members or colleagues; we can often create a special trip on the day you select. For land safaris, custom departures make sense for a few as 3-4 travelers. Come to Moab. Experience it.
The extra costs (if any) are surprisingly reasonable.

There is no better way to bring people together than in the outdoors because nature has a way of bringing out the best in people. Away from work, traffic, stress, school, and the day-to-day responsibilities of life, people relax all the way down to their bones. The wilderness is fertile ground for creativity, friendship, teambuilding, family building or just kicking back after a tough project. As a side trip on a motorcoach tour, a trip into the wilderness is perfect for road-weary travelers. When Tag-A-Long Expeditions builds a trip for you, there is no limit to the possibilities. With as few as two or three people you can charter a custom trip or reunion to include the Grand Staircase National Monument, Canyonlands National Park, the Colorado, Green or San Juan rivers or a unique combination of each. Let us arrange a land safari into seldom-visited wilderness areas such as the San Rafael Swell, Dark Canyon Primitive Area, Beef Basin or Nine-Mile Canyon. A custom expedition allows us to build one of our premier trips just for you and your group, convention, motorcoach or reunion. The Utah wilderness is waiting for you. Come on!

Let Tag-A-Long build a trip designed to reward your existing team, build a new one, brainstorm projects, or say thanks after a big year.

Look at the choices for your special motorcoach clients…

Tag-A-Long Expeditions’ playful raft trip may be just what your road-weary guests need. This splashy river trip over mild whitewater rapids gets them off the bus and on the river laughing and playing. The scenery is some of the most beautiful in the West as they journey down the mighty Colorado River.

Jetboat/4X4 Expedition
Fast becoming our most popular expedition for motorcoach tours, the jetboat/4X4 combination trip takes guests 25 miles downriver on calm water. As the boat travels through the Colorado River canyon, tall red rock cliffs tower on either side of the river. Hawks soar overhead. Blue herons skim across the water searching for fish. There’s always the chance travelers will see mule deer or coyote strolling along the river banks or a desert bighorn sheep high on a rocky outcropping. After a picnic in a remote side canyon, guests will board 4-wheel drive vehicles for an unforgettable adventure deep in the interior of Canyonlands National Park.

This one day adventure travels from canyon rim to river and gives visitors to the area an opportunity to see ancient Indian writings, petrified wood, and a natural arch that they may even walk across! If you can choose only one side trip for your motorcoach clients, this should be your choice. This itinerary is offered exclusively by Tag-A-Long Expeditions.

Sunset Cookouts on the Colorado River
Imagine introducing your guests to canyon country by planning a sunset cookout on the shores of the Colorado River! Your guests will travel 15 miles downriver over calm water on a comfortable jetboat, the Colorado Explorer. This three-hour tour gets your clients outside during the most dramatic time of day when the red rock cliffs light up with the setting sun. Dinner is served on a white sand beach. All the while your guests will be entertained by live Western music. This tour is offered exclusively to motorcoach groups. The departure times vary due to daylight hours and can be customized to suit your specific group.

Evening Raft with Beach Party
If your guests would prefer a splashy, mild whitewater ride instead of a calm water jetboat ride, the raft option with the beach party is a perfect alternative. An afternoon raft trip loaded with laughter and spectacular scenery ends with the same superb dinner and music on the beach. This trip is also chartered exclusively for you.

Interpretive Guide Service
Your motorcoach guests will leave canyon country with an expanded knowledge of the West, its amazing geology and the wildlife that inhabits this part of the country. Tag-A-Long Expeditions guides fill the tour with exciting, factual, spirited stories about these memorable lands. They possess years of experience and training in the legend and lore of Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, the Colorado River and surrounding area. They can introduce you to native plants and even identify animal tracks. They can talk to you about American Indian cultures, both ancient and contemporary. They’ll also tell you about the outlaws who used to roam these canyons. Our guides welcome questions of curious guests.

Women Trips
A woman’s retreat to take movement with the strength and weaknesses we possess in an environment less familiar. It is an opportunity to lead and follow, rankle and be loved, exude or meditate, simply, be yourself. Consider this: you can blend hiking, rafting, kayaking, and 4-wheeling into a pleasurable wilderness expedition. You may join any of our regular scheduled trip departures and trust Tag-A-Long staff will professionally address matters of hygiene and modesty in the wilderness. Or select one of our theme trips for women only.
