What people are saying about Springdale

super pretty views and Robert the bus driver did a great job pointing out interesting sites en route, stopping for photos frequently. The bus was very comfortable but it’s a long day and one should pack a hat and gloves etc as it’s cold in Bryce Canyon and there are short hike opportunities which are wonderful but you need the right clothing and shoes.

Excellent Tour and well worth the money. Dirk our driver / comedian / tour guide etc. kept us well informed about the itinerary, sites, washrooms stops, food etc without going overboard or being too pushy. I would highly recommend Dirk and this tour!!! 5 Stars.

Awesome tour to Zion and Bryce Canyon. Paulie was very knowledgeable and told us many facts and showed us cool hiking spots. He was a trooper and drove over 500 miles for us. Great guy. Great tour.

Great tour! A long bus ride but the scenery was well worth it and Robert was an amazing guide.
