Who Are We? Grand American Adventures offer small group adventure tours for a younger international crowd who want to experience North America.

We explore America on trips that take you to big cities, National Parks, beaches, small towns and many places away from the tourist routes.
Grand American Adventures tours are owned and operated by TrekAmerica and all new tour leaders will be hired to lead TrekAmerica tours in their first year. For more information about TrekAmerica please visit their website at www.trekamerica.com
