Active and Adventure Escorted Touring

With my 20 years of experience and industry connections, you'll receive privileged access to active and adventure vacations.

I've toured 32 countries on five continents and have taken more than 20 cruises... all with one goal in mind: to help you experience your "one-of-a-kind" Bucket-List adventures.

Many travelers come to me feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information they've seen or heard... and the amount of time it takes to research travel online.

With my background and deep travel industry connections, I'll provide you with honest feedback and help you separate the hype from reality.

  • Your initial vacation exploration session is complimentary - I'll ask detailed questions about what you do want and what you don't want on your vacation.
  • I'll listen carefully to your answers so I can focus on the best-fit vacation for you and your tribe.
  • I'll move quickly to provide you with a unique "first-look" itinerary.
  • After you receive your initial "first-look" itinerary, you'll provide me with feedback... what you like, what you'd like to change, and any questions you'd like answered. 
  • After you've decided on the perfect active and adventure vacation experience, I'll get it booked and will pay attention to all the many details on your behalf.

Why Active and Adventure Escorted Touring?

  • Experience a variety of physical challenges (within your comfort level)
  • Meet the locals
  • Genuine cultural immersion
  • Travel in small groups
  • "Exotic" destinations are made more easily accessible

I enjoy guided active and adventure touring when I meet the locals and am humbled each time I learn that so many of us around the world want the same things out of life. I want to bring these same rewarding experiences to my clients.

Some examples of my favorite active and adventure vacations include a Kenyan Safari to the Masai Mara with National Geographic Journeys; my four-day hike in the Andes Mountains to reach Machu Picchu, Peru; and riding on the Northern Explorer train through the heart of New Zealand's North Island.

I look forward to providing you with unique, life-changing moments that will be a hallmark of your traveling career. 

What do my clients say?

Waterfall Climbing in Costa Rica

"Best trip I've ever taken. Every step of the way had been planned in advance. I never once had to think 'Uh-oh. Now what?' All the thorny details... like who would pick us up at the airport, how would we get from Point A to Point B, will our hotels be where we want to be... had been worked out in advance. It was nearly effortless on my part! All I had to do was relax & enjoy. I'm very grateful to Steve for handling everything so professionally, for listening thoughtfully while we described the perfect trip, then steering us in all the right directions."

" French Polynesia: Cheers to 50 Years!"

Reviewed By Carl and Betty - Golden, Colorado | Traveled to French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
First of all, Steve is a super friendly and personable guy whom you feel that you've known forever. And on his professional side, no detail, I mean NO DETAIL, was left unattended. Steve took care of EVERYTHING! He sent extremely clear communications to us, and when we had questions, Steve exercised super patience in his intelligible and detailed explanations. He literally erased any worry or concerns that we might have had without his assistance.

Dear Betty and Carl, Thank you for your glowing review; I am grateful for your kind words and humbled to serve your vacation desires. I think you can hear the smile I'm wearing every time we talk? Big Hugs to you both, Steve

Trip #10 for Family of 16

Reviewed By Mac - Storm Lake, Iowa | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
Our family of 16 recently returned from Beaches Turks & Caicos 3/14-21 on the front end of the Corona Virus that was mostly in China, Italy, and other areas outside of the Caribbean Islands and minor exposure in the US. Needless to say some apprehension as to whether to travel or cancel. Here’s another reason to use a seasoned travel agent as Steve provided us quality information as to whether to travel or not and then stayed in constant contact with us as Covid-19 became more prevalent in the US. Beaches was TOTALLY aware of the Corona Virus and had hand sanitation EVERYWHERE and demanded patrons use it! In addition, employees were sanitizing surfaces everywhere within the resort. The native inhabitants who are employed by the resort DID NOT want case #1.

Another AMAZING Vacation!

Reviewed By Tara - Arvada, Colorado | Traveled to Cabo San Lucas ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
If I could rate Steve higher than a 5 I most certainly would because he is BEYOND excellent!! This review is only asking about one trip so I will put the one I just returned from. But anyone reading this review should know that I was referred to Steve in August 2008 and I have NEVER had to look anywhere else for all my travel needs. Steve is simply AMAZING! He listens to what you want, need, like, dislike, etc. and he comes up with OPTIONS which I personally love. He'll tell you where you can go, for what cost and he'll always go the extra mile to find you the best deal within your budget. From beginning to end Steve is available, prompt and thorough. I even received a text from Steve on day two of this last trip (which was a Saturday) just to confirm we had arrived safely and gotten settled into the resort! That is a perfect example of the kind of personal touch I have always received from Steve! I'll NEVER use anyone else!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Steve Lord responded:
Thank you Tara, you are a delight to work with and I appreciate that you always bring someone new on each trip because I love your referrals. Los Cabos is a rich destination, filled with lots of fun things to do, golf, spa, diving, shopping and ATV riding. Riu Resorts do a great job and they are very close to one of the only swimmable beaches there, Medano Beach. I look forward to getting your next call, Tara! You always make me smile. Steve

Top Notch Travel Professional

Reviewed By Scott & Joseph - Highlands Ranch, CO | Traveled to Caribbean
Steve is truly awesome! We have booked 17 cruises with Steve over the past 15 years and he always does such a great job for us. He has so much excellent knowledge about the ships we’ve traveled on and the destinations, which have ranged from most every Caribbean port to the Mediterranean and a very special Amsterdam to Barcelona cruise. In late 2018 when the Celebrity Edge launched Steve was on the ship sending us pictures and providing us with a ton of useful information about the ship in preparation for our cruise on the Edge in March of 2019! Details about the cabins, the restaurants and the public areas which we found most useful. Steve always goes the extra mile to make sure every detail is taken care of. A few years ago we asked Steve to help us plan a trip to Hawaii. We wanted to stay in a condo and Steve was able to provide us with many options based on his first hand experience. I highly recommend Steve and the entire agency for any travel needs! They are fantastic!

A wonderful honeymoon!

Reviewed By Kaytlin - Houston, TX | Traveled to New Zealand ~ Australia & New Zealand
Working with Steve was a great experience! We did not want to do a bunch of research on New Zealand, but obviously wanted to have a great time on our honeymoon. Steve worked to get us itineraries that would show us so much of what NZ has to offer. He took into account how much we wanted to move around and what types of activities we like. We were able to give feedback easily on the itinerary, learn more about the activities, and finalize a trip that we knew we would love. And we sure did love our trip! We’re so happy things were all taken care of for us so that we could just relax and enjoy our honeymoon. We will definitely use Steve again in the future!

Provided support before and during trip

Reviewed By Jo - Amarillo, Texas | Traveled to
Steve has been provided travel arrangements for me, and other members of my family, since 2009. He has prepared cruises, all-inclusive land vacations and independent lodging in foreign countries. Our various trips have included as few as two, to as many as 30, coming from Texas, Pennsylvania and Colorado. We have gone to several European destinations, South America, Dominican Republic, Canada, and U.S. (Hawaii & Alaska). Steve has been patient to deal with each and every one of us and our individual requests and concerns. He has provided excellent service. We have such wonderful memories from these adventures. We will continue traveling with Steve providing the guidance.

Great Anniversary trip with the family!

Reviewed By Bob - La Veta, CO. | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Steve worked with my wife and myself to plan a 40th anniversary celebration with the kids/grandkids and the challenge to find a destination that would excite all ages, from 6 to, well really old (me). He interviewed my wife and I covering all phases from various departure locations to room requirements to interest. Once he had a handle on all the various requirements he presented a limited choice with a review of each. A couple of which he had personally visited. Result, rave reviews from all 10 of us! We will definitely be using Steve and his company again and again, as we are annual destination travelers. Bob & Sue Walker

The best trip of our lives

Reviewed By Karen - Arvada, CO | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
I planned this trip for my mother's birthday. Steve was wonderful to work with. He worked with me on every aspect of the trip, very professional, courteous and helpful. The suggestions he made allowed for an unforgettable experience. I did have an issue with the flight that was not because of something he could have foreseen, I contacted him for assistance and he was able to make phone calls and adjust the itinerary so that the rest of the trip was not affected. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone planning a trip.

Steve is a total professional!!

Reviewed By Randy - Lakewood, Co. | Traveled to
Steve Lord helped us locate a dream vacation in Mexico. It was a new location for us, hence, we were dependent on Steve leading us and informing us on a safe and beautiful resort. He was totally aware of what we could expect at the particular resort and he was correct about all facets not overselling but supplying just the right amount of helpful knowledge. Steve provided very important information as we were going out of the country and all of his tips made our entire vacation a total pleasure from our front door to the resort and home. Steve strikes the perfect balance of industry knowledge with just the right personal touch and integrity. It all went smoothly without a hitch thanks to a real pro.

Professional and Delightful!

Reviewed By Anne - Lakewood, CO | Traveled to
My husband and I have been going to Mexico for our vacation for approx. 15 years. At least 10 of those vacations were planned with the help of Steve. He is so knowledgeable about where to stay and honest. I give him general information and he has always found the greatest location and resort. He makes it a point to stay "in tune" to what our likes and dislikes are and remembers from year to year. And, he is such a delight to talk to. This year he also planned my husband's brother and wife's trip with ours (they live in Chicago). Everything went off without a hitch. We had a wonderful time, returning to the Tucan in Playa del Carmen. He is definitely my go to guy. Hugs, Steve! ooxxoo
