Highly recommend this personalized fun tour! Neil and his wife went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and to ensure we had a memorable experience! Neil was prepared for everything even the fact that the park temporarily closed due to congestion. He entertained us with a quick visit to see dinosaur tracks and bones. With his wife monitoring the park opening, we were in as soon as it reopened. Our group included two adults and two teenagers. Neil accommodated the varying physical abilities of our group so we all enjoyed the tour! The kids climbed Double Arch with Neil’s help and expertise while the adults enjoyed the view from the shade below. Due to Neil’s knowledge of the park, we saw all the arches we wanted to see even with our late start due to the park closing! Without Neil’s knowledge of the park, we would not have an amazing experience we had if we had tried to do this on our own. Special kudos to his wife for the absolutely delicious lunch that was provided!

Exceptional experience to live and relive from every point of view: - Transport in a spacious and comfortable Chevrolet, with unlimited snacks and drinks - Delicious lunch lovingly prepared by Neil's wife (our guide) - Visit of the park adapted to our physical and personalized condition - And finally the kindness and attention of Neil, not to mention his qualities as a photographer. We enjoyed our visit so much that we asked Neil to organize a second visit for us, around the Great Salt Lake… Great too. We promise to come back, to test the 2-day DesertSOLITUDE formula, with campfire, caravan… A big thank you Exceptional experience to live and relive from every point of view: - Transportation in a spacious and comfortable Chevrolet, with snacks and drinks - Delicious homemade lunch - Customized park visit adapted to our physical condition - And at least but not last, Neil's kindness and attentiveness + Photographer skills

Best guided tour I have ever been on!

We tour the Arches last week with Neil. This was an exceptional tour and he was a great guide. Neil showed us arches that we would not have seen or known to see without him. He cooked lunch for us at the park which was phenomenal, and had snacks and water for us throughout the trip. I highly recommend everyone to use this company. We felt like family by the time he dropped us off at the hotel. Thank you Neil for an adventure of a lifetime!!
