| LEISURE WEST TOURS & CRUISES was started in 1998 with a simple concept:|
TO GIVE OUR CLIENTS THE BEST VALUE AND SERVICE POSSIBLE.
LEISURE WEST TOURS & CRUISES is proud to be part of TRAVEL ALLIANCE PARTNERS (TAP).
TAP is an organization of not more than 40 select Tour Operators in the United States and Canada who work together to offer a full range of "Guaranteed Departures" throughout the United States and around the world. You can view these "Guaranteed Departures" on our "TOUR CALENDAR" page.
As well as the general sightseeing tours, we enjoy working with groups that have a special interest such as birding, geology, ghost towns, scenic railroads and historic trains, Native American culture, history, photography, ecology, climate change, NASCAR, quilting, knitting, needlework, and many other pastimes.
The company is owned and operated by Lee Dahl and Joan Fields.
Lee was born and raised in Minnesota. After graduating from Minnesota State University at Mankato, he moved to Iowa where he opened an auto parts store. After several years, the travel bug brought him to Colorado where he started working for a motorcoach company and began doing tours. He has always had a passion for travel and going to new places. Lee has traveled throughout the country, and likes the Western States the best. He is very familiar with all the well known areas and sites, as well as the back roads. Lee likes to find the hidden and little known places that most people bypass.
Joan is a Colorado native. She was born on the western slope of Colorado in Montrose, near the beautiful San Juan Mountains. Joan has a deep respect for the natural beauty of the west, a passion for its history and loves traveling. After many years as a legal assistant, the chance to escape the legal world and form Leisure West Tours & Cruises was an opportunity that couldn’t be passed. Joan says, “With every tour our company does, my aspiration is to exceed my own high level of expectations for travel experiences”.
