It was a good time. I was soloing but it was nice talking with other people on the tour with me. My tour guide let us wandered off but had a specific time to get back to the van/bus. I know a lot of people won’t like that but it was nice because while traveling to the other places he would talk about things we are seeing outside. I will say that hiking/snow boots would be best to wear when heading to the mountains! It also gets pretty cold. Overall, I had a great experience with the tour. Definitely worth checking out!!

RedRock was one of the main spots for this tour. They close early when the concert is held that later day. We were able to get in just in time before they block us to enter was lucky, with the tour van arriving and leaving earlier than planned was good. If you are in the same situation go to the visitor center so that you can see what the actual structure looked like if you were able to step down to the stage. Indeed I learned that Corolad is a ROCKY state!

Excellent excursion, complete and very well programmed. We learned a lot with the guide (Roman if I remember correctly) and also laughed a lot. The quality to price ratio is excellent.

Exceeded expectations! Roman was an excellent guide.
