We did an overnight trail and stayed in a teepee. The guide knows the Oregon trail and life at this time. The wagon is bumpy but not bad given you are on wagon trail ruts. Food was good and the teepee was comfortable. We weren't sure where to meet at first because the meet up place was closed on the... More

My family and I went on the two hour tour in the wagon. It was a lot of fun and our guide, Ben, was very informative. I learned a lot I didn't know about the wagon trains and I thought I knew a lot having studied this era before. This trip takes you along part of the Oregon trail and... More

After reading all of the great reviews on Tripadvisor, we were really looking forward to the 4 hour covered wagon tour. Unfortunately, we didn't get the experience everyone else had. Jackie was fantastic, leading us to where we needed to be to board the wagon and she was very friendly and fun to talk to at the lunch, but I... More

We booked this wagon from Australia. we were met at the National Historic Trails Centre by Jackie who led us to the Trail Head where we met Morris and started our 4 hour wagon ride. Morris was very informative with the history of the trail and settlers, pointing out many landmarks. The ride finished with a light lunch at his... More

We live in Fort Collins, CO and were tired of battling the masses for campsites yet still wanted to go somewhere for a weekend. I looked into Casper since we had never been there and it was not all that far of a drive. I found Historic Trails West on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a whirl due... More

I took the two hour tour and in that short period of time, I gained much respect for those who traveled west by foot, horseback, and the women who were too pregnant to walk, or the sickly who had to ride in the covered wagons. I can only imagine their guts and determination to make such a trek in the... More

Traveling across the west and wanted a true experience, this was it!! We rode in the back of the covered wagon for the 2 hr ride. There was our family including our 2 teen sons, an older couple and another couple decided to ride horses alongside. Our driver Ben was very knowledgeable and worked the team well. He allowed those... More

On our way back east after our Yellowstone trip and after days in a car, this was an absolutely perfect counterpoint and reminder of what cross-country travel used to be like. We were met right in time at the interpretive center and followed Jackie to the trail site where we met Ben and our horses. After we all got acquainted,... More

My family, with our 8 and 12 year old girls, chose to take the overnight trek and spend the night in a tepee. Morris and Jackie were amazing during the entire trip. The horseback ride on the trail was filled with wonderful information that Morris provided. He has extensive knowledge and his personal history with the trail makes him a... More

Along with a driving trip through Wyoming to view Independence Rock, the chance to ride in a wagon along the Oregon trail and stop for a deliciously cooked steak lunch was an amazing set of experiences. Morris set the tone for an authentic Wyoming day to explore the Oregon trail. If you have any interest in the pioneer trails through... More
