It was worth the money I spent. Jacob was the guide/coach driver and was very nice and very experienced. I enjoy the small group. Then we joined the larger group in the last 3 days. Robert too was very good. It was best experienced than explained. Very hectic, wake up early and finished late some days so as to cover many places. You will enjoy the adventure

Our tour of Peek-A-Boo slot canyon was amazing. Joe Swanson, our guide, was knowledgeable and quite helpful. He snapped some fantastic pictures of my husband and me. The canyon itself was gorgeous and an easy hike. I highly recommend this tour.
