They are the best tour company out there. I used to book my tours through other company but found them on Google while searching for my next tour and I decided to book through them. They have a very friendly customer support service and helped me through every step of the booking. These guided tour are really good for people like me. Tour guide made sure that I am with the group throughout the tour as I had walking issues. Thanks.
We came from India for holidays and decided to take this tour. It was long tour but it was worth it. Though there were other options available as well but Canyonlands National Park was the deal breaker for me. This National Park is amazing. I will rate it higher than everyone’s favorite Yellowstone National Park. I would recommend you people to go for newer buses as the one we had was old. But it was still good and comfortable.
