We had a fantastic experience today with Brian and Jason (owners of Mojave Wave, LLC). From the moment of my initial booking about Zion National Park, Brian was responsive, engaging and gave us a huge favor and ask for a last minute change of hotel picked up and dropped off location, when sent Jason to be our tour guide, he was promptly on-time for our hotel pick-up - his mini van, a very comfortable White Chrysler, was very clean. Once in the van, he asked us questions to gauge our specific interests and expectations for the day - and he nailed it. Jason delivered a wonderful day, as we drove through Vegas from our hotel at Worldmark, Jason would tell us about all of the towns that we were passing through - keeping us interested the whole drive. He is so knowledgable, funny and pleasant. We would definitely recommend Jason a guide in this area.

Met the bus at 5:00am. Departure to and from the park was right on time. Tour guide was interactive and engaging. Gave a lot of local facts and insider tips for good restaurants in Vegas plus tips for navigating throughout Zion National Park. Made a stop midway to and from the park to get coffee, food, use restrooms etc. Lots of ice cold bottled water was supplied throughout the drive. Having all that time in the park made the early departure worth it. We were back at our resort by 5:30pm.

It was worth the money I spent. Jacob was the guide/coach driver and was very nice and very experienced. I enjoy the small group. Then we joined the larger group in the last 3 days. Robert too was very good. It was best experienced than explained. Very hectic, wake up early and finished late some days so as to cover many places. You will enjoy the adventure

Awesome experience worth every penny! The scenery at Zion was absolutely amazing and Jason was a great tour guide! I will definitely keep Mojave Wave in mind for other tours on any future trips to Vegas!

The trip was easy informative Jason was very knowledgeable and witty! The bus was sooo nice ! Zion was a blast! Amazing beautiful sights !
