We help you create the adventure of a lifetime. 

Do you want to . . .

Experience tours to places like:

  • The Columbia Gorge?
  • Mt. Hood?
  • The Coast?
  • The Wine Countries (we have a lot of them)?
  • The Wallowas?
  • The high deserts?

Maybe you’re looking for something really authentic; cultural and “living like a local”; independence and finding those hidden gems. Balancing the iconic with those experiences that are more off the beaten track.

Maybe you're just looking for a new adventure in an unexplored part of the west. Whatever it is, we make it easy for you to find and experience it . . . on your own terms.

Our Mission

Our mission is to open doors and give you the opportunity to experience something really different. To see through the eyes of the people who live here. To discover the natural beauty, culture and adventure that only the west can offer.

Dan Smith was inspired to create Wild Wild West Tours and most importantly the Travel Alliance by his love for the west and his experience as a tour guide, manager and entrepreneur.

He conducted tours on three continents in eleven countries for seven years and has seen first-hand how tourism can help save the culture in even the most remote location. If it wasn’t for tourism local dances, arts, crafts and lifestyles would very likely disappear.

This is a whole new approach brought about in part by the new sharing economy. People love the place where they live and want to share their love with you. We are the bridge. Giving you the opportunity to create your own tour, your own adventure just the way you want. To be safe, to be secure and experience the west your way.

Our Vision

Our vision is to connect you with drivers, tour and trail guides and suppliers for safe and inspiring trips; from photographic, cultural and family experiences to heart-pounding, adrenalin rushing adventures. Our goal is to empower local experts, individuals, small businesses, and communities to actually make a living doing what they love. To chart their own course and financial independence.
