How are dietary issues handled on your tours?

When you sign up for one of our tours, we ask you if you have any dietary allergies, needs and preferences. We send that information to the tour guides so they’ll take everyone’s needs into account when planning the tour’s picnic lunches. We also keep that information in mind when we plan for the breakfasts and dinners at restaurants, where everyone usually orders off the menu. We make sure there are ample choices for everyone.

We cook most of the dinners on our cross-country and epic tours. Our traveling chef accommodates guests with specific allergies and provides a non-meat protein source for vegetarians, but she cannot always adhere to everyone's likes and dislikes. If you require a vegan or gluten-free diet, there is an additional fee of $50/week on our epic, cross-country, and barge tours.
