Highly recommend this trip. My wife and I took our grandkids ages 12 & 14. Great way to see the Canyon. Guides were very professional (Niki was a Star) and the mules were well trained. Only negative were the 2 older gents at the hotel check in desk. Not friendly - grumpy and NOT very informative. They hurried us along... More

My family and I had a great time on the Canyon Trail Ride at Bryce Canyon. I cannot imagine a better way to experience the canyon. The views were spectacular, the horses were great, and our guide was confident and reassuring. Our family of five (three teenage children) had a wonderful time. My wife and daughter were initially anxious about... More

This is a well organized operation in the North rim of the Grand Canyon. Our gude was awesome, as were all the guides. They sincerely seem to have a good time and enjoy riding. We did bring bandanas for the dust, which I highly recommend.

As a family we make the habit of doing trail rides on our vacation and this one was the best ever !! The scenery and the horses were perfect, the guide was funny and informative. We took the 3 hour trail and as experienced riders we were allowed to "close" the group which means play the distance and handle the... More

We were looking forward to the trail ride to the bottom of the canyon, but when we arrived, our 9 and 10 year old were petrified of the horses. Quincy stayed with my daughter and reassured her that she would be fine. When we were ready to ride, our guide, Neut, was amazing with our daughters. He rode right next... More

Fantastic! We had perfect horses, "Slim and Black Jack", and our guide , "Tuff" was wonderful. First time ride for my 13 year old son and we had the time of our lives! If I could give 10 stars I would! An absolute "MUST" for enjoying Bryce Canyon. We also hiked "Queens Garden and Navajo" trails. Trip of a lifetime!

Family of 4 with 2 kids (10 and 11), we booked this ride during 1h30. It was perfect to see another side of Bryce Canyon. It was a beautiful ride. The crew nice and helpful. The picture at the end, was a bit too much.... why not getting connected and offering some digital link for less money than a paper... More

The overall experience was great, but our first impression was negative, because the check in people were really grouchy and unfriendly. They were very dismissive and rushed us, saying the tour had probably already left. They also gave quick directions for how to find the stables and then were rude when I had to ask again. As others have noted... More

Ok so first I want to say that the folks at the corral and guides COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER!! We loved everyone and the trip - AWESOME views and knowledgable guides - our family rode Casper (very gentle), Donna (a stubborn mule who was super gentle but needed MUCH encouragement to follow along), Antelope (beautiful but a little fussy...

I brought my GS troop of 8 high-school age girls to Zion at the end of June. Hiking the Narrows and riding the horses were the two big highlights of the trip. The staff was wonderfully accommodating with our variety of riding skills and the scenery was of course amazing. The girls really enjoyed this experience and it was very... More
