What people are saying about Musselman Arch

What a great day! Our guide, Justin, was absolutely terrific. He was incredibly knowledgeable (his Chemistry degree was on full display as he explained a lot of what we were seeing), very entertaining (lots of bad jokes ), and a great driver along some tricky roads. He also prepared a nice lunch for us complete with tablecloth! We spent a full day exploring Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, saw amazing scenery including the spot where they filmed the car going over cliff scene in Thelma and Louise. Justin was open to whatever we wanted in terms of hikes, happy to do longer ones if we wanted but totally fine with shorter ones. It was a really fun day. Highly recommend!

Ron was such a class act. His knowledge and the history of the area was such a wonderful bonus. He could really read his clients and went above and beyond for us. Making sure he granted all of our requests. He even suggested some options for us to do while we were in Moab and we took him up on them and were not disappointed! We even had a naked chick dancing in the sun under one of the arches, which he alerted us to make sure we would not be upset. (We were not, got to love the public). The lunch he made was light, delicious and filling. A+ rating for Ron as a guide

Amazing day well worth the money and time spent! Our guide David had a great wealth of information to share with us and really added to our enjoyment and understanding of both parks. He was able to answer all questions and discuss all subjects from history and geology to current activities of modern day Moab. David was the best tour guide you could ever hope to have and we cannot say enough good things about him and his depth of knowledge and grasp of all things Moab. What a valuable asset he is to his company and truly deserving of reward and recognition!

We had a fantastic time! Blaine was our guide, we laughed, learned, enjoyed our beautiful surroundings, and felt safe and comfortable during our trip. It was great that our guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about the park and surrounding areas. His suggestions of other activities before we left Moab made for an overall great vacation
