My wife and I are considering going on a hosted professional caravan. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
In 2004 we traveled with www.creativeworldtravel.com
on its Canadian Rockies tour. We have traveled in Western Canada on our own for many years, but this tour company gave us a first-class tour of places we'd never seen (a couple places we had and enjoyed the return trip with a new perspective).
Creative World Travel was based in New Orleans and must have suffered severe damage due to Katrina. It appears they have joined or were bought out by someone else, and have reduced the number of tours offered. I would still recommend them as being a first-class company.
We did not "caravan" in this tour. Each day we were given an itinerary, but we traveled at our own pace. We had a time-table to follow, but it could be done at a leisurely pace without following someone's bumper. The "tail-gunner" left the last campground last to keep tabs on stragglers and/or breakdowns. You didn't have to worry about being left behind.
Good Sam also offers tours that may be of interest. While we not used GS, their write ups seem good.
