    First of all I want to say thank you to the wonderful guide James Li. 2 years ago I have already used the services of your company, the guides were quite good (there were 3 of them), but James was the best. He is a super organized, responsible and smart person. He knows the tour program very good, it was really interesting to listening him. The group was amazing this is respect of our guide, because he could organised everybody in group.Hope next time to meet with James in tour again. The program of tour was really wide, we have visited a lot of Canyons and National parks. As for me I take away Moab from the program, because the other places are very good and more attractive (this is my vision).

    I recommend this tour!

    The tour was organized and disciplined. My husband and I had a great time from day one. We really enjoyed and appreciated the historical places, and the wonders of nature that only God can make. I will say that this tour was well worth the money we paid. James, our guide, understood our needs and made sure we enjoyed the trip. Our driver, John, was an expert driver! Thank you guys!

    The tour was fascinating. We enjoyed it much! The mountains - their color, shape - vary greatly. Our guide James did his best - we were just in time to meet sunrise or to see sunset. The atmosphere was very friendly. I wish I could join the tour again.
