The guides were knowledgeable and welcoming. It was a good intro to slot canyons which were quite beautiful. The UTV rides on the trails were a fun way to commute to the slot canyons and see the scenery around the area.

Very exciting activity, both when moving with the UTV and when visiting the two slot canyons. Worth the cost of the ticket
