Best ever experience tour . My husband and I can’t get over the awesomeness of the whole tour .We have a great tour guide Cris who assisted the whole group in the best possible way. He was able to blend the whole group as a big family at the end of the tour . The tour has the whole package visiting the beauty of the national parks and gaining friends as well . Cris you are the best, thank you for guiding us to experience the beautiful scenery and history of the southwest.

Our guide Alex was amazing. He was knowledgeable and nice person. Although, English is not my first language, but that was fine. I spent an unforgettable time with new friends. I could meet people from all over the world. Also, the night sky in Arizona was the best ever in my life. If you can’t decide your mind, and you are procrastinating to book, you should join this tour for sure. Oh,I joined this tour in August, but I needed warm clothes at night!

I was skeptical due to the surge in popularity of the US National Parks. The tour company truly made it a hand tailored and personal experience where we never felt like we were in a crowd. Unique to say the least!

Bindlestiff Tours did an amazing job and we fully enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Nicole, was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about everything. She made the whole trip magical.

Wonderful tour. Camp site at Monument Valley was amazing.
