super pretty views and Robert the bus driver did a great job pointing out interesting sites en route, stopping for photos frequently. The bus was very comfortable but it’s a long day and one should pack a hat and gloves etc as it’s cold in Bryce Canyon and there are short hike opportunities which are wonderful but you need the right clothing and shoes.

It was a magnificent experience to see the Lower Antelope Canyon. We had a great time during our ride with Don. He was friendly & professional.

Great tour! A long bus ride but the scenery was well worth it and Robert was an amazing guide.

Robert war ein toller Guide. Wir hatten einen wirklich tollen Tag.

The views were spectacular. Slit crayons are SS unique.
