The two-day Arches and Canyonlands Tour with Desert Solitude was by far the highlight of our trip to Utah. Neil is topnotch as a tour guide and so knowledgeable of the National Parks as well as the surrounding area. It was a bonus to have Amber with our tour, she is also a great tour guide and captured some great photos. It was so nice for my husband to not have to keep an eye on the road while seeing the beautiful sights, all so impressive. It was very hot when we were at the Parks which Neil accommodated as much as possible in planning our itinerary. With a private tour we were able to do and see at our pace and get to places the larger tours would not be able to. The backstories he told of the area and knowing the best viewing spots and hikes made the trip so much more interesting than if we had toured the parks on our own. We highly recommend this tour.

Really fun morning exploring slot canyons. Our guides were Tait and Easton who were terrific. They were knowledgeable, super friendly, great drivers and willing to take as many pictures as we wanted. The slot canyons were spectacular, and quite easy to navigate. We couldn’t go all the way into the Crimson one, due to standing water. But what we could see was amazing. Highly recommend this activity!

Excellent! The UTV ride was so much fun and our Guide, Tait was the best! He grew up in that area and knows each road, slot, fun facts and the people of the community. He took such amazing pics and showed us how to do it too!

Our guide Jeff was great!! Very knowledgeable about the area and took us 14 miles down the river and made it a fun day! Highly recommend!!

Hostess, tour guide Tricia was amazing. Nothing was ever too much. Sights out of this world, And I mean it.
