Awesome
This was so fun! Our guide was very cognizant of our abilities and took the time to actually coach us on how to complete certain sections which made it even more fun! We went with Brandon! We stopped at all the best views, he brought us snacks and didn’t make us feel uncomfortable with anything at all! Great fun!

Perfect way for my family to experience Canyonlands

Sunset Scenic Tour of Canyonlands National Park & Dead Horse Pt
Our guide Pauline was not only a geologist but also wonderful with our kids. They’ve missed out on a lot of education due to COVID, this was the perfect way to get more in. She was a fantastic guide for us and we are so grateful for this experience! Thank-you!

Discover Moab in A Day: Arches, Canyonlands, and Dead Horse Point
This was a day to remember with awesome sights in both Arches and Canyonland National Parks with Bill our tour guide. Not only was it visually pleasing, it was informative in regard to geology, botany and history. I particularly enjoyed seeing and learning about plants used by the Native American Indians for medicine. We highly recommend this day-long tour.

We asked if we could go to the Arches instead as we were only here in Moab for one day! The tour company happy agreed and we had a great experience! Bill was so fun and had a lot of information and stories to share with us!

Sunrise photography in Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands National Park
Really enjoyed the photography tour with Colin. He identified great photo shoot locations and had great tips on photo composition and angles that were an awesome lesson for a beginner like me. I look forward to returning to the area and taking the tour again. I highly recommend this tour with Colin.

Dead Horse Point Half-Day Guided Mountain Biking Tour in Moab
THIS WAS AMAZING! I think my favorite part of this activity was being able to be up close and personal with the awesome nature you’re surrounded by. The instructor (Jeff) stopped a few different times at some truly scenic spots and you could not only try to catch your breath (at 5,000’ above sea level..which takes a while), but you could enjoy the landscape that’s enveloping you. The bikes ride like warm butter across a nicely toasted piece of sourdough. The shocks are amazing! There were tricky spots, but there was zero pressure from anyone and it was totally fine to get off and walk the bike through those areas. I’d so do this again!

Our tour guide, Bill, was fantastic! He is a wealth of information and we were so impressed with his knowledge about Moab, the geology, history and the environment. He made the tour exceptional!
