The tour was great. The guide Hen was extremely knowledgeable about the geology and flora and fauna. She made sure we got pictures taken with our loved ones. Even though it was raining on and off, it was a wonderful experience.

This was our first adventure when we got to the park. The staff was SO friendly, and really made the experience. Even though we didn’t go into the park, we still had some spectacular views! And had a blast!!

My kids really had a good time riding the horses with occasional trotting. The unique experience from horseriding in the forest and by the canyon rim was a highlight of our visit at Bryce Canyon.

Mabry was a great guide and very knowledgeable about Bryce and the whole history of the area. So happy we didn’t try to hike on our own.

Very knowledgeable guide and great tour. The duration of the tour is perfect to take it easy and not have to rush.
