Mother Lode Adventures Charter Services, LLC was established with the vision of providing unique, exciting and fun adventures for guests of all ages throughout our beautiful Sierra region and beyond. Whether you want simple transportation to and from a destination, or want the opportunity to discover the many hidden gems of the Sierra, our goal is always to provide a distinctive and memorable experience, tailored to meet your needs. Mother Lode Adventures Charter Services is fully insured and permitted by the California Public Utilities Commission and the Department of Transportation to operate party charter transportation services in California.
What was our inspiration? It was a phenomenal European vacation taken by company founders Kelly and Scott Smith in 2012. Arriving in Italy by train, they met a gentleman who operated a private transportation company, and who created a custom driving tour for them throughout Tuscany, traveling on their own schedule, without being bound to a tour group’s itinerary.
What made it even better were the special touches he added to the visit – his insights onto the region’s history, advice on where to shop and eat, and the guidance he provided to make the trip exceptional. This level of customer service resulted in the perfect vacation, one that would not have been possible without flexible professional transportation and a knowledgeable guide. We knew we wanted to create that same experience for our guests at Mother Lode Adventures Charter Services.
