Behind the Business: Big Green Adventure Tours



TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Southern Idaho is known for its gorgeous views and amazing sights, and one business is passionate about showing people around.

This week’s Behind the Business takes us to Big Green Adventure Tours.

Whether you have lived in Idaho your whole life or who are just passing through, it doesn’t take long to realize there are a lot of beautiful sights.

Big Green Adventure Tours is there to help you see them all.

“I moved to Twin Falls about eight years ago and coming from Las Vegas where I was an adventure tour guide as well, I noticed the town did not have an adventure tour company that did land tours like I do, so decided to open my own business, which is this company here and do adventure tours for our tourists here in Twin Falls,” said Gabrielle Burton, the owner of Big Green Adventure Tours.

People can choose which tour they would like, either Dierkes Lake and Shoshone Falls, Craters of the Moon, Shoshone Falls and the city tour, the Hagerman Valley Tour, or the scenic wine tasting tour.

“Our tours begin with pick up and we pick up at all hotels, at local RV parks, Air BnB’s, we try to make it as easy as possible, try to take all of the worry out of it as possible. We all travel in a luxury SUV, we only have seven passengers per group, we try to keep it small. Our tours are either four hours in the morning or four hours in the afternoon, or we do the full day with lunch out at Craters of the Moon,” said Burton.

She says her tours include facts and history of the area and the entire tour is customized to their liking.

“We ask the customers what they like, do they like to take pictures, do they like history, what do they like? So, we customize the tour’s narration to what they like, and we also help them take their photos, so they don’t have to feel like they are always taking selfies on their own vacation,” said Burton.

Normally they give 165 to 175 tours per year.

Their tour season is from March 1 through Nov. 30.

The tours are given every day, but they do book up quickly.

“A lot of people might not realize that Idaho is kind of a bucket list state, I hear so many times on tour, ‘we never thought of coming to Idaho’, so what I get out of it is I get to show them this amazing scenery we have here in little old Twin Falls, and I get the response so many times over and over, ‘we never knew,’” said Burton.
