Full description
After pickup from your hotel in Moab, drive towards Canyonlands National Park high atop the Island in the Sky mesa. As your vehicle descends via the steep switchbacks of the famous Shafer Trail, enjoy a brief stop explore Native American rock art that was carved into the cliffs by the Ancestral Puebloans.   Continue through Canyonlands along a portion of the White Rim Trail over to Musselman Arch for incredible views of the Colorado River below. Enjoy a few stops with short hikes. In the afternoon, enter Arches National Park near Doc Williams Point. Climb a steep rock wall and drive across a valley through sandstone fins and dunes.   Pass the famous Tower Arch, the Eye of the Whale Arch and the Marching Men—a group of 7 towers lined up in one row.

Overall a wonderful day! First things first - if you have an extreme fear of heights or get carsick this may not be the best tour for you. Tyler Israel was our guide today and he is so knowledgeable about history of the land, people, and geology of the area. Please make sure to inform the company when you make your reservation of food allergies because by lunchtime, we were about 100 miles from the nearest hospital. The sights were amazing and absolutely beautiful!! Tyler also took us the back way into the parks so we could see sights most tourists could not see. Highly recommend this tour

Fabulous day out. We avoided the crowds by using back roads that only a 4 X 4 with high clearance could navigate. We hiked to the Tower Arch and were the only ones there. We were fortunate to have Charlotte as our tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We are so glad we booked this tour. We saw so many things that most tourists don't get to see.

Awesome tour! Can’t say enough. Our tour guide Josh was amazing! I would recommend all to ask for him if you take this tour. We took the full day tour and we were “overloaded” with amazing sights and they never seemed to stop. Josh was very knowledgeable. Great freakin job Josh!
