    Not only was the Canyonlands tour all we hoped for in scenic vistas and landscape, KJ was the best tour guide we have EVER had. Interactive, knowledgeable, good spirited and enthusiastic to share his local knowledge with us. We have been on many tours but having a participating tour guide in the beauty of the park made this one of our most memorable vacation experiences ever. Only down side was fie in the vehicle put either 3 across the back seat with no view or one in the far rear seat (the option we went with) a very uncomfortable situation. Tours should be capped at three in a vehicle such as ours.

    Justin was an amazing tour guide. He was fun, knowledgeable about the topics and more importantly he was a very safe driver. We were on some high and narrow roads! The only way to truly explore this park is with a tour guide. Justin was one of the highlights of our amazing trip to the Southwest.

    We did a half day 8 am trip. It was great! Our guide, Blaine, showed us Native American pictographs, beautiful scenery, with great views and plenty of time to take photos. He was knowledgeable about wildlife, geology, plants, and native cultures. He drove us to the lower part of Canyon Lands, and then up, up, up! We felt safe all the way with him driving in a challenging terrain. I highly recommend this trip.
