Pioneer Trails Adventures Reviews
Our guide Ralph was very knowledgable about Missouri history and entertaing as well!! We learned and laughed a lot during our 45 minute covered wagon ride! Thanks for a great time!! more »
Owner was very informative and this would be a great place for younger children to learn about the old west, traveling by wagon, pioneer days, and the civil unrest. more »
A once in a lifetime experience. The guide really brought history alive! His story telling and intimate knowledge of the area is impeccable. I'm not from the area and I learned so much from his stories that I have a much deeper historical appreciation of the area in both Missouri and Kansas and the US in general. May not be the best for very young children because they get bored or distracted and may not understand everything but it was a great experience for an adult! The guide sure knows how to keep it entertaining and educational and is passionate about what he does for a living!
What a great experience! The guide, Ralph, was incredibly entertaining and informative. This is a great experience for both young children and adults. Highly recommend!!
