The Outfitter Tours Difference
We distinguish ourselves from others in our space by crafting robust, satisfying experiences that keep clients coming back.

  • Small group tours.  With an average tour size of 12, and a maximum of 18, our guests enjoy the social intimacy of a small group and the benefits of individual attention from our staff.  Without the hustle and bustle of being herded from one place to the next, our guests find space to relax.
  • Local, full service staff.  We work only with local guides who are native speakers of the language and intimately familiar with the region.  In addition to terrain guides, each tour will bring one or more mechanics, maintaining a guide to client ratio of 1:5 or better.
  • Unparalleled pricing.  With higher quality and lower prices than outfits with comparable itineraries, our value can’t be beat.  Longstanding relationships with service providers in destination regions position us to offer great pricing, which we pass on to our guests.
  • Family-owned since 1996.  With hundreds of tours, more than a thousand satisfied clients from all over the world, and scores of positive reviews and testimonials to our credit, we are a proven outfit with a long track record of excellent results.
  • One of the highest repeat/return rates in the industry.  Many of our clients enjoy our tours so much that they choose to ride with us again and again.  Our referral and rewards programs are designed to thank repeat customers for their business.
