What people are saying about Bryce

Definitely an excellent way to see the park. Even though the trip is 5 hours in duration, there is time spent being shuttled between the different stops. Also, they will tailor the trip to match your hiking level. Our guide Tim was very knowledgeable and was an excellent guide.

We really enjoyed all the observation points we stopped at. Our driver Jim was entertaining and informative. We felt like we saw and learned more comfortably in 3 hours than we could have done on our own since the park had no free shuttles like Zion. Good value for the money.

This was the most enjoyable and educational tour we had. Maybry was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable of not only the rock formations but also the vegetation. There were 4 of us and we all give it a 10/10.

Well informed guide that explained things well. Extremely considerate of the needs of those on the tour

Great way to see the canyon! Crowds make it impossible to do it on your own!
