Taking in the Grand Canyon’s depths, jetting down the Las Vegas Strip in a limousine, and visiting a tiny town in search of its resident poltergeist—guests of Bindlestiff Tours can have these experiences and more. The company’s expert guides create the wide array of southwestern tours themselves, tailoring the itineraries to their personal expertise and their insider knowledge of camera-shy cacti. Their carefully curated trips can last from a single day to three weeks, with longer trips stopping at far-flung landmarks such as Yosemite National Park, Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon in a single week. Bindlestiff Tours also aims to protect the natural wonders it celebrates, encouraging tour groups to minimize their environmental impact as they travel by keeping to trails and recycling.

Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.
