East Zion: Slot Canyon Exploration and UTV Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
This is an absolute must do it tour!!! I had a blast. Bonus if you get Ita as your tour guide...he’s in my opinion the best out there. During covid, I had no concerns travelling with a small group: we had 7 ppl in total and everyone was wearing masks. Ita is knowledgeable and knows the best spots for those pics that are Insta-worthy. Ita also is so impressive with taking professional pics for everyone on the tour: I found that Ita used to be a professional photographer wow! Ita took us to the best photogenic spots at both Zion and Bryce, and even took us to parts of Red Canyon (which is not part of the schedule). Ita has consistently gone above and beyond as our tour guide and I cannot thank him enough. In my opinion, this tour offered by Coexist West Coast is a must do it tour for anyone who wants to see the best of both Zion and Bryce in one day. I will give this tour 11 stars out of 10. Simply the best tour I’ve been on :)
David was prompt picking us up very friendly professional courtesy, he made sure we had bathroom stops. He’s very knowledgeable and the tours we really appreciate it. We figured it would be a little cooler, but I’m just date it was particularly very very cold I believe it was a -12 with the wind factor, so in the winter months I would definitely wear layers and some warm gloves scarf and hat to keep warm some hiking shoes to walk on the ice and snow as well
Bus was very comfortable and not too crowded, about half full. Drive through Zion was beautiful, you go through twice, once on the way to Bryce and also on the way back. Eating lunch overlooking Bryce was nice. Lunch is not good, so many want to bring your own. Lunch is a soggy turkey sandwich, bag of goldfish, and an orange. Bryce is amazing and beautiful. About 10 hrs into the trip they had to exchange drivers. Our trip took 14 hrs (6:00 am -8:00 pm)
We are not experienced hikers by any means and needed a guide that would understand that. Joshua was just that guide. He was so patient with us. He was careful too. He was aware enough to take us where it wasn’t so difficult in certain places on the trail. He was very knowledgeable about the area and history of it as well. We were so happy to have him with us. We will definitely do this trip again!
There was a little misconception as to what the day would be like. The only hiking is done at Bryce Canyon. The tour through Zion is all via the van. We did take numerous breaks from being in the van since majority of the time is spent driving. Overall it was good, and the views at both Zion & Bryce were absolutely beautiful!
