Why We Love This Tour

“I’ll admit, the first time I guided this tour I thought, ‘there’s no way we can fit all of this in.’ Having done the loop dozens of time now, I can honestly say that it’s by far one of the best values out there. It’s full on, yet the timing just works out perfectly to get to know all of the amazing places we visit, just enough to want to come back for more!”

National Parks Mini-Explorer

I spent 3 of my best days in the US on that tour. Perfectly organized and guided by JD Boyle, it gives the opportunity to visit legendary places and really feel the desert. To see the moon rise and the night fall over Monument Valley and the first sun rays above the same rocks the next morning was a dream come true. Thanks JD! I hope to travel again with you some day 🙂

Best Tour Ever; An Unforgettable Journey

Last summer I booked a 3 day trip covering Zion, Bryce, Monument Valley, Horseshoe bend, Grand Canyon, departing and end at Vegas. After one year, I still think this is the best trip I ever booked from a tour company. I was extremely lucky to have Vern as our guide & lead (also driver), a guy with great personality, also so experienced and professional in organizing everything. We were able to be quite flexible in deciding how long we wanted to stay in each place, which hiking trek to take, etc. I enjoyed every hiking route Vern recommended! I was travelling solo and was a bit concerned if I would be totally comfortable in joining a group tour, but it proved my concern was nonsense. The others in the group were very easy going and we got along well. Every park has its own uniqueness and amazing views. I loved every place really. The highlight for me is Monument Valley, apart from the sunrise (we had a great camping spot for watching sunrise!) and the safari tour, the whole place just felt so spiritual (my very personal feeling). I never felt rushed or bored during the 3 days. Most of the time I even forgot I was travelling with a tour company, I felt I was just travelling with a group of friends. Arizona and Utah not only have unique nature landscapes but also interesting social and culture characters. I would love to highly recommend this tour to everyone. If I have the chance, I will do another one with this company!

The Tour Other Tours Wish They Could Be

Just finished the 3day tour to bryce, zion, monument valley and grand canyon. So much fun! Excellent organisation, interesting facts, sites, and enthusiastic/experienced tour guides. If you’re concerned about camping, don’t be. You’ll regret staying in a hotel when you realise how awesome the campsite experiences and locations are! In three days we covered a lot but it’s so well organised it never felt rushed. I would recommend this tour to everyone, absolutely ace!
