Green Tortoise Adventure Travel

"Tour the wonders of North and Central America aboard one of our legendary sleeper coaches."

"There's nothing else like the Green Tortoise - PERIOD. Our busses are beautiful, with names and literally millions of miles of character.

"Our passengers are happy. They don't sit up all night with their heads against the window, but sleep lying down on fitted sheets over mattresses on raised platforms and bunk beds, listening to beautiful music as they doze off. In the morning they've usually arrived somewhere incredible! By day we swim, cook breakfast, explore caves, climb mountains, raft downstream, stand under waterfalls, walk through forests, cook dinner, build campfires, visit towns, meet people, or just plain take it easy.

"You're welcome to join the adventure, friends and fun. The settings will be national parks and the finest and least visited beaches, deserts, forests, hot springs, mountains, and waterfalls that our years of experience and good-natured drivers can find."
Frequent Crawler program! It is a concept very similar to that of the airlines Frequent Flyer clubs: repeat riders earn credit for the trips they travel with us through "adventure points", and then cash these points in for free trips.
