"Curiosity is one of the great secrets to happiness!"
Bryant H. McGill
Remember your children, or you as a child, and how one of his/her first words was 'Why?"
What a wonder that was to see how curious a child could be. If your child was
anything like mine, the word became his most popular question, even to
the point of overuse. But you had to love it! Your child was learning!
I bring this up, as you may be asking right now "Why should I do a Down To Earth Tour?"
Great question, for sure. We at Down To Earth Tours are "tooting our horns"
about what we do because we are passionate about what we do, and we want to share that passion for learning and curiosity with you.
And that, we believe is why you will absolutely love your day with us.
Read on to further answer your 'Why?" and to begin to answer some things
about the "What? of our tours and adventure.
Your vacation time is precious to you and your family,
and you want to make it the best it can possibly be.
Vacations cost money, of course, and those costs can be
grouped into Wants and Needs. The needs are lodging, travel and food.
Most everything else is a want, whether that is an ice cream cone,
a souvenir to bring home, or an activity that offers a new experience.
Down To Earth Tours has since 2006 offered an experience that,
according to our many guests, should be at the top of your Wants list.
Our tours offer our guests a diverse and educational day
exploring 'off the beaten path' locales with extra-special stories
and numerous 'gee whiz' experiences.
You will learn things you never knew, you never knew
and have a great day in a fascinating neck of the northwoods!
Our day blends cultural heritage and natural history with ecology and nature
that will amaze residents and visitors alike.
Learn the secrets of the northwoods and its past.
Beauty, wildlife, and a great lunch are standard fare
and a bonus to your special day. Native American cultures are a part of
our regular tour and are the prime focus on our First Americans Cultural Tour.
All tours except the Hayward South Loop Tour

2013 marks our 8th year of offering learning adventures in the Northwoods!
You have found the right place for that 'extra-special thing to do' on
your trip to Wisconsin's northwoods.
Several guests have indicated that our tours are similar to an "Elderhostel'
learning adventure or a national park-like educational tour.
(Without the 3-day drive to Montana!)
Our tours are designed for visitors and residents alike. It is an educational,
down-to-earth experience designed to discover many fascinating things about
our diverse northwoods. One can learn about the place you visit, or the place you call home.
Join us - you will learn lots and create some great memories!
We see and learn many things about our neck of the woods and have fun doing it.
Our original Eco-Geo-History Tour takes our guests on a day-tour
going off-the-beaten-path to discover fascinating places and stories
of the northwoods. The route is designed to maximize a diversity of
learning experiences and topics that will enhance your knowledge
of the landscapes and the history that permeates the northwoods.
As suggested in the Walt Disney movie 'Pocohontas,' theme song,
"You'll learn things you never knew, you never knew."
The First Americans Cultural Tour features Native American history,
foods, language,places, calendars, moons, customs, villages, practices,
stories, mining, and much more,dating back to people who have called
northwest Wisconsin home since the Ice Age.The Ojibwa culture is our
