Zion is an amazing place and everything is wonderful and a highlight of the trip... Angel's Landing, the Narrows, getting a root beer float in Springdale after hiking all day. But if I HAD to choose just ONE highlight, this tour would be it!! Renn was our guide and he was simply the BEST! He expertly managed that white knuckle drive to the slot canyon and then guided us in. My friend had experience rock climbing and had no problem with the minor bouldering that we encountered. I had zero experience and relied on Renn's calm and confident instructions on how to maneuver the boulders, encouraging but not pushy. He respected my limits. Incredible photo opportunities. Will definitely be framing some of them. I almost captured the magic of the slot canyon with my camera but the awe of their magnificence can only be experienced in person. We had major adrenaline rushes for hours after this tour. Highly recommend!!

This was the very best thing I did while I visited Zion! The guide was wonderful and made it such a fun experience! I will be recommending this to everyone I know!

John was a great guide! Our kids (8 and 11 yr boys) did awesome and loved every minute! It’s a well worth it tour!

Great experience. John and Kyle were awesome guides. They were patient and knowledgeable and so kind.

This is a fantastic experience. The slot canyons are truly amazing!
