What a great trip! Neil and his wife Sarah made sure that everything ran perfectly. We hired Neil to take us to Capital Reef National Park and Great Basin National Park, a two day trip. Neil picked us up at our resort and from that moment on he handled everything. He is extremely knowledgeable. He made sure we saw the best of each park and did not have to worry about any of the winter driving. He stayed in contact with Sarah, making us feel very safe. He always had a plan to handle any bumps along the way. Kudos to Sarah for the wonderful chicken kabobs and other wonderful food she sent with Neil. Neil set up a stove, provided comfortable chairs, and we ate our lunch while enjoying the beauty of nature. We were able to go deep into the park, thanks to his 4 wheel drive, very luxurious SUV. We never would have known where to go without him. He was kind enough to send us some of the photos he took along the way. That was a nice gesture. We would highly recommend him.
