This was easily one of the most fun tours I've ever been on! The 4x4s are beasts that can take on terrain that seems impossible--there were a couple of spots that definitely had us white-knuckling it, but the guide went through first and briefed us on where to go and what to do to stay safe. The tour hits some gorgeous spots that would be impossible to access otherwise, and our guide Aaron was informative and fun, and made sure everyone was having a great time. The overlook of the Colorado river at sunset was spectacular, highly recommend doing the last tour of the day to catch it. Overall, an excellent adventure!

Our guide Danny was awesome!! The entire ride was wonderful! We stopped at several lookout points - watched the sunset by the Colorado river and had GREAT photo opportunities ! Highly recommend to all!!

Awesome! Kevin was great! Cool way to experience climbing in a vehicle as you have seen with Jeeps, but a lot safer.

A fun experience and everyone that worked there was great from the check in to the guide.

Craig was amazing. A truly thrilling adventure that I would highly recommend!
