We had 2 cars with Dan and Anna. They were both delightful, full of interesting information. They showed the teenagers of our group where to go into little canyons and look around. It was a wonderful introduction to Arches and we were able to go back in the evening and doing another hike. It was everyone's favorite thing we did on the trip.

Bronson was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the area. We are senior citizens so Bronson let us do whatever we felt we could do. We only went on a couple hikes because it was to hot. Bronson was an excellent tour guide.

Outstanding! Fun and educational. This is the only way to go and see these parks. The guide very knowledgeable and accommodating. The trail lunch break tasty, filling and satisfying.

Justin was an awesome guide. He is incredibly knowledgeable and gave us the best time. It was the perfect all day tour of Canyonlands and Arches National Parks!

Great guide. Knew all the good places and how to get around in the crowded parks with ease
