The management company, the guide, and the tour itself were all great. Our guide Kurt was always considerate and the best guide. In my case, I used a SIM card for overseas travel, so I couldn't use my phone number, so I had to adjust the pick-up location until the morning of the day. The tour is a van, but it was cleaner and more comfortable than I imagined, so I'm glad I chose this tour. Antelope Canyon requires you to wear a mask during this time, so please bring it with you. Since I participated in the summer season, the sun was strong and I sweated a lot, but thanks to the consideration of the frequent handing out of plastic bottles, I was in perfect physical condition and was able to participate. After that, as you can imagine, you can see wonderful scenery, so I definitely recommend joining this tour. By the way, lunch was Subway where any toppings and orders are OK! Best!

This was an absolutely amazing trip! Each park we visited was unique and beautiful with endless opportunities for photos. There were different hikes to choose from at most locations so we could opt for easy to more challenging, with most excursions lasting about 2 hours. The tour was well organized and camping under the stars added that extra oomph! Our guide Christian was wonderful -- funny, enthusiastic, caring and very knowledgeable. We did so much in the short 3 days. I'd highly recommend this trip!

The trip is quite long, 4 hours each way but is totally worth it. 5 stars to our driver/ guide Kirk!!! He was nice, attentive and great driving etiquette. I usually get motion sickness for long distance ride but nothing happens to me during this trip!! Kirk, you are amazing!! Just one suggestion, it would be nice if the windows on the right side of the passenger seats are tinted. The AC was fine; but still feel warm when the strong sunlight was shining on your legs for 4 hours!!

Enjoyed thoroughly!! It was well organized, and loved the accomodations as well. The guides were really helpful and patient with us !

A superb day, the tour guide was so interesting, added lots of vue to the trip
