Wow! Sometimes there are just no words. To see the amazing geological formations from 7000 ft was magnificent! Our skilled pilot was also our guide and shared a lot of interesting info! Made our trip to Moab most memorable. Thank you.

We had a great time. Our guide was very informative and had great stories to tell of his experience living in Moab. I hope to be back and take my boys on that airplane tour next time.

Bindlestiff Tours did an amazing job and we fully enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Nicole, was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about everything. She made the whole trip magical.

We both loved our helicopter flight, but by far the best part was landing up on the butte. It was beautiful, fun and relaxing. Highly recommended!

Well-run organization. Excellent supplement to seeing this area from the road. Great staff.
