Our History

Our History

Hidden Treasures Tours has a rich history. Hidden Treasures Botanical Tours was originally created to offer specialty botanical tours throughout the world, highlighting unique public and private sites not often discovered on the average trip abroad. Recently, we have expanded our tour options and are excited to  launch our new brand, Hidden Treasures Tours.

Our tours specialize in revealing the natural beauty, history and culture of the locations we visit. We emphasize custom itineraries where we strive to visit each and every location prior to offering a tour, small group sizes and unique, quaint accommodations. Join us on tours that take you off the typical, well-traveled tourist path and enjoy traveling with like-minded people.  We limit tours to a maximum of 24 participants and often limit to as few as 8 or 10 on specialty tours. Our guides are well trained and experts in the field pertinent to the itinerary.

The majority of our clientele are repeat clients. Some have joined us on every tour we have offered and have come to appreciate the quality of our tours, the unique sites we visit and accommodations that reflect the natural beauty of the surrounding areas we are visiting. We would be happy to provide references upon request.

We also create small group vacations customized to your traveling group size. We have created tours for 50th birthdays, anniversary celebrations, family reunions, marriage celebrations, honeymoons, and friends. We work with an agency in the country to where you are traveling to ensure you have a worry free vacation and are well cared for once in country. Our prices are very competitive, and often we can get a trip priced cheaper than if you were to book directly via the internet. We also book many villa vacations – so if you prefer the comforts of home, inquire about our villa vacation rentals.

We listen to our travelers, too.  Sometimes, you don’t have that much time to devote to vacation.  Maybe you only have a four-day weekend.  So we now offer Closer to Home trips; unique itineraries that offer fun and relaxation without having to go overseas.

And finally, we have also expanded into specialty tour adventures.  Be it zip-lining, white water rafting, bungee jumping—or whatever your desire, we are excited to design the perfect vacation adventure for you.  Our idea of specialty tours also includes beverage and/or cuisine-focused trips; like sampling foods through Italy or Greece, visiting Belgium or German breweries, or whatever gets your blood pumping – we want to take you to the best locations on the planet to enjoy your passion.

Hidden Treasures Tours is also a proud member of IATAN and the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
