What people are saying about Utah

This was a great tour. Cannot describe the experience in words. One has experience it and feel it. Since we travelled from India to US, we had more luggage. But they allowed it. The guide was excellent. He had a lot of knowledge about several things. He helped all in the group whenever needed. The driver was also good. Did his job perfectly. The hotels they offered for 2 nights were comfortable. We returned back to Las Vegas by 3pm. So, I guess, we could have spent few more hours sightseeing at Zion rather than spending them in Vegas.

Our float trip was amazing. It was relaxing, informative, educational, and the scenery was incredible. Jesse was the perfect guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, and easy to talk to. My wife and I are glad we took the ride. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Very good option to visit the national parks. I was staying in Las Vegas and found it very practical to count on the tour for these long drives. Everything was well organised! Tour guide and driver were super nice and the bus was very comfortable.

Josh the guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the entire trip.

Good way to see all the highlights of these parks in a limited amount of time.
