It was a great trip. Seeing Grand Canyon south rim was an unforgettable experience! Took our breath. With snow and fog and hail, we got lucky that park wasn’t closed. Second day got to see all the locations except Zion because it closed due to snow. We weren’t that disappointed with that because 1 - it’s not in our control, 2-we were all really tired. It’s physically demanding if you walk around each stop and explore. The tour bus isn’t top of the line but sitting in front seat you can see the majestic views really good. The overnight stay was comfortable- 2 queen beds in a big room. For our group of 5, we booked 3 tickets + 2 tickets separately to get two rooms.

The experience with Claudio was amazing. He really looked out for all the needs for each passenger and also gave many inputs while we visited these historic places. It was a delight and I would recommend taking this tour with him. (Tour date - 11/18/22)

Fun and great experience worth the price paid. Tour guide was very informative and did not make the trip a bore, definitely would recommend this trip!

Great Tour. Tour Guide Don made it awesome. Highly suggest.

The trip was amazing but I wish we had more time at Zion
