What people are saying about Zion Canyon

I really like the experience and Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park is a must see. It’s our guide Ita - he is very informative during the trip , knows about the geography and history. He was also very helpful with taking all our pictures and showing us several stops to take photos at Zion . Then at Bryce , he gave us 1 hr and 20 min to roam around .He also drives safely and very respectful . You can go down and hike at Bryce but we didn’t go below very much since we didn’t bring any hiking shoes and sticks. And there’s no more railing below and we’re only beginners. Overall a must see site .

If you don’t mind spending a day away from Las Vegas then this is the tour for you. The only cons I can think of is that there are only a few stops to use the restroom and the fact that the tour starts early in the morning. However, Bryce and Zion Canyon is a must see and its well worth seeing at least once. Water and lunch is provided by the tour company and if you ain’t a morning person like me, you can take a power nap on the drive there. Overall this was a great tour and I would like to go again on my next trip to Vegas.

So much fun! It was our first time trying canyoneering. Our guide AJ was amazing, he was super friendly and helpful! The views were incredible and the repelling was awesome. We would definitely do it again.

This was an amazing experience!! They take you to all the highlights. Our driver Ita was so knowledgeable and definitely made the trip fun!!

Very good trip. A lot to see in one day but well worth it.
