Our guide Shirlz was the best. She was an experienced tour guide and driver. She took us through the slot canyon by the best friends sanctuary and showed us fossils and pictrographs. She was very informative and cognizant of our abilities on the trail.

Utah's mountains are breath-taking. My words could never explain the beauty, the inspiring views we have uncovered. Every park and national monument we visited was wonderful. I have my preferences on the best, but they are all fabulous. You'll have to visit them yourselves.

This trip with Mike was incredible. He was very kind, open to the questions and knows many things about canyons. The peekaboo canyon was gorgeous. Me and my family were realy amazed. We use a ATV to reach the canyon. Good choices for us !

Relative easy to walk, also for elderly people. The "Dreamlands Safari" drove a 4wheeldreiven car. It is not to far from Kanab.
