I had a great time on the trip. However I was told to meet at the library at 6:30 am, but the bus came at 8:30. I found someone who was told the same thing. We called her agency who confirmed 8:30. That is something that needs to be corrected in your itinerary.

The trip was great, the impressions will stay with us forever, beautiful views in the parks, the guides could provide a little more information. Unfortunately, there were also some unpleasant surprises: e.g. a change in the collection time, no information, we stayed 2 hours and waited for the bus (only after a few phone calls we got the information), the group of Antelope Canyon did not enter because the guides did not register on time (no information from the office) on luck, we managed to postpone the entrance to the next day. The accommodations were in good places close to shops where you could buy food, comfortable rooms.
