Difficult hike but you won't regret one bit

We decided to go with a tour company and had a tour guide all to ourselves (off season). I'm so glad we did that even thought I was expensive since we may not able to find the... read more

Truth: This is a long, boring hike in soft sand that is about 8 miles (in and out). The folks who hired a tour company seemed pretty pleased when they drove by us...again and again and again. Hire a tour guide. The slot canyon was nice but if I had been accurately informed how far it was before starting, I... More

We decided to go with a tour company and had a tour guide all to ourselves (off season). I'm so glad we did that even thought I was expensive since we may not able to find the road to the wave based on the direction on the permit. I would highly recommend it if that is your first time to... More

I'm a 100% disabled Vietnam veteran that uses walking canes for short slow walks. Where I left the Jeep meant a 1 mile hike into the entrance but the distance was short compared to the visual outcomes. Take the time to hike this slot canyon. Allow 4 hrs if you can get down to the river bottom and more if... More

Utah's mountains are breath-taking. My words could never explain the beauty, the inspiring views we have uncovered. Every park and national monument we visited was wonderful. I have my preferences on the best, but they are all fabulous. You'll have to visit them yourselves.

This trip with Mike was incredible. He was very kind, open to the questions and knows many things about canyons. The peekaboo canyon was gorgeous. Me and my family were realy amazed. We use a ATV to reach the canyon. Good choices for us !

Relative easy to walk, also for elderly people. The "Dreamlands Safari" drove a 4wheeldreiven car. It is not to far from Kanab.

Great day with Mike! Excellent information. Experienced guide. Great conversations on the drive out and back. We would recommend any one interested in a unique experience and beautiful landscape. We enjoyed this unique and unbelievable natural formation. Definitely worth multiple visits. Mike is your best pick for guide!

Great place to visit and spend a few days hiking and exploring. We camped , the desert is unbelievably quite. We enjoyed the great horned owl hooting all night. Bring clothing for all weather . Mild 70's daytime temps and mid 30's at night. Dog friendly place. Travelers were very friendly . The paria canyon-vermilion cliffs is breathtaking. A real... More

My girlfriend and I met Mike for a hike around the south cayote buttes (Mike had sorted the permits out for us because we were unable to get them). It was a really fascinating place and I am surprised it does not have more visitors (I think that will change). The rocks got more and more interesting (and strange) the... More
