We had a great trip. We were the only 2 and it was a great experience. We learned a lot about the history and the area.

Thank you for your great review. Although the Great Salt Lake is not one of the most beautiful lakes in America, it is probably one of the most unusual and historical treasure of the West.

One of the best tours I have taken in the country with TripAdvisor. The tour guide and driver was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about everything Utah, Salt Lake City, and Great Salt Lake. It's clear that he knows and cares a great deal about this area, and there were few questions

Captain Valerie was funny and informative. Because it was winter we couldn’t swim or engage with the water but she still found plenty to tell us.

If you have a rental car, skip the tour take the trip yourself. I wanted to drive around more to see the lake from different angles. Felt a little let down by this tour.

Response from CitySightsUtah, General Manager at Guided Tour of Great Salt Lake from Salt Lake City
Responded 14 Feb 2020
Your guide informs everyone what to expect on the tour. There are only 4 roads that go to the lake and we take the one closest to the city. The other Lake access roads are 90 to 240 mile journeys. As you would find out, in order to see more of the 400 mile shore line from different angles it requires many hours or even days. It is simply not practical to do things like that on a 2-hour tour. You should call the company; explain your disappointment and they will refund you.

Very disappointed, guide did not stop at Saltaire on return from lake as advertised. There are also no stops on way to lake, while description mentions several stops on the way out. Save your money and take the short drive to the lake, park fee is very nominal.

Responded 3 Feb 2020
Jennifer, we are sorry you expected to stop at SaltAir pavillion. It is closed to visitor's. In our description of what to expect on this 2 hour tour, we do not advertise stopping there. You are always welcome to request a refund. We want to make sure you feel you were treated fairly. Please contact OUR office, NOT VIATOR. Remember: Viator is a seller of tickets; they do not necessarily fully represent our company and often they do not.
