Pioneer Trails Adventures, Independence

Ghost / Vampire Tour · Historical Tour
At Pioneer Trails Adventures, we are more than just a ride. Come visit Independence, where three trails began, two Civil War battles were fought and one President began his march to the White House. See Independence as a pioneer would, by mule-drawn covered wagon. Our Pioneer Adventures are unique and compliment without duplicating other historic sites.



On your wagon tour find out why: Frank James' jail cell door was never shut, why Order number 11 made Harry S. Truman emphatic about the Marshal Plan, how the painting of order number 11 destroyed a mighty General, why Missouri is the Show-Me-State and so much more.
Make Pioneer Trails Adventures a centerpiece of your Independence vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Independence trip planner.

  • A once in a lifetime experience. The guide really brought history alive! His story telling and intimate knowledge of the area is impeccable. I'm not from the area and I learned so much from his stories that I have a much deeper historical appreciation of the area in both Missouri and Kansas and the US in general. May not be the best for very young children because they get bored or distracted and may not understand everything but it was a great experience for an adult! The guide sure knows how to keep it entertaining and educational and is passionate about what he does for a living!
