I had a fantastic day! David (Big Dave) was our guide, he was kind, informative, and great to chat to. he made sure we were all comfortable in the van, which was clean and had good air conditioning. the rest stops were fine, breakfast was simple but adequate, lunch was great too - snacks, sodas and water were available throughout the trip too, which was a really lovely touch. once we got to Antelope Canyon, we were handed off to a tour guide from Ken's Tours and walked through the canyon. it's a tight squeeze in some places and quite slippery, I felt pretty rushed through the canyon, purely because they try to get so many people through each day, there's constantly people in front of you and behind, I wish we had more time but oh well - that's the only way to see it. we also went to horseshoe bend which was very pretty (and busy), and the Glen Canyon Dam for photos. we got back perfectly on time at 9.30pm. Super satisfied, thank you Dave for a wonderful day!

The jeep tour and the hikes in the slot canyons were awesome. It was very funny to go through the very narrow canyon, we wouldn’t have done it without the help of Neal! He was an amazing guide, very funny, helpful and took time to explain where to put our shoes to be able to go through all 3 canyons. We also felt very safe having him with us, we highly recommend this tour, one of the best I’ve ever done!

Great trip, lots of amazing photos and lifelong memories and our guide Janet was awesome, very knowledgeable and informative. Well worth every penny. Favorite was Bryce canyon. Just awesome trip. Would definitely recommend it. Thx again. Donald clarke

Went to Capitol Reef NP. The Guide was great, but the main loop thru the park was closed for road maintenance, so the trip kinda sucked.

Jc was a great guide. Very knowledgeable. I hope he received our tip
