What people are saying about Utah

The guides were friendly, well informed, and entertaining! We had mild cloud cover during our event but we’re still able to see an amazing array of stars, satellites, and shooting stars! I learned a lot from their commentary, and enjoyed the friendly banter between guides.l and audience. They provide you with blankets to lay on, but I’d also recommend (as they d) bu doing up for the event if you go in early April like I did, because it got pretty cold out. They provided hot chocolate, tea, and hot apple cider to help battle the cold!

Had to switch to the sunset tour due to park restrictions. Did the back country 3 hour tour. The tour was amazing but the tour guide Larry was even better. His knowledge and love for his land was exceptional. 10/10 in all aspects. Would definitely recommend.

It was exceptional!Our guide gave us a plethora of new understanding of Navajo culture and was very knowledgeable about stargazing. He was very courteous and punctual. I would recommend his company to anyone touring Monument Valley.

Reever was very informative and took us to some great star gazing locations. He shared lots of experiences of life within the Navajo Nation and gave us some great photographic opportunities. Thank you, Reever

Loved being able to look at the stars and learn about the stories! Got to even see a shooting star for the first time and learned how to find the north star too! Very fun and informational!
