Just Do Travel

Behind the Business: Big Green Adventure Tours

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Magic Valley is a beautiful area, from Shoshone Falls to the mountain scenery off to the north and south. When Gabrielle Burton came to the Magic Valley, she wanted to share this beauty with everyone.

“I moved here 6 years ago from Las Vegas and I originally thought I would open this company in Las Vegas, but there were way too many tour companies there,” Burton said.

Because the Magic Valley is so large, a wide variety of options are available.

“Shoshone Falls and city tour, that’s our number one tour,” said Burton. “We head out to Dierkes Lake and we do a hiking tour out there.”

And it doesn’t stop there.

“We also go out to Shoshone and we do a historic and adventure out there and the ice caves, and then we have an off-the-beaten-path tour all through Hagerman up through Castleford,” said Burton.

One other tour offered in Hagerman is a wine tasting tour, linking both this tour and the Shoshone Falls and city tours to local businesses around the area.

“The idea was to link tourism here with the small businesses downtown especially, and all throughout the route on that tour,” Burton said.

And all of the business stops are local and very unique to the region.

“The Orpheum Theater, because of its unique entertainment to the town, the really cool shops and restaurants that are down there. We love to tell people there’s more to do than just a chain restaurant,” said Burton.
