We could not have had a better experience and it was one that we could not have managed on our own!!! Steve was the best guide taking us to places and formations we never would have found by ourselves. In fact, we had been to South Coyote Buttes on another trip and the places he showed us were undiscovered by... More

My husband and I spent my 50th birthday in one of the most amazing places on earth, guided by a man with remarkable knowledge of the often overlooked but utterly awe-inspiring South Coyote Buttes. We are experienced hikers, comfortable on our feet but not so much behind the wheel of a 4WD vehicle on deep sandy roads. So we decided... More

After missing the 9:30am appointment with Dreamland Safari tours in Kanab due to tire problem, I took some more time in Zion doing sightseeing. Later in the day I drove to Page,AZ. About 30 miles before Page, I passed Paria Outpost and Outfitters building which is advertized as a restaurant. I remembered their name from my google searches and decided... More

For us this tour company was a perfect fit. The guides saw and felt nature the way we did. We did the complete journey, North and South Coyote Buttes and the White Pockets. It is the journey to these places which is the key. The guides of the Paria Outpost provided this. If you want an outfit which gives you... More

Our day tour of South Coyote Buttes will be a lifetime memory for us. This area is truly spectacular and we feel privileged to have been able to see it. We chose Paria Outpost as our tour company and are so happy we did. Our guide Dallas made this a very special day for us. He was attentive and shared... More

Paria Outpost and Outfitters knows the surrounding countryside intimately and can take you to undiscovered gems! We have used their services three times, and each trip has been exceptional. Not only are Steve and Susan great people to know, they take all of the worry out of maneuvering the deep sandy roads that this area is known for! On our... More

My wife and I were thrilled with our experience with Paria Outpost and Outfitters. This is a small, family business that provides an intimate and well-thought experience for those needing a guide. The Dodsons are great people. Steve provided perfect guidance through the best spots to see at White Pocket. He really knew the place forward and back -- putting... More

We were lucky enough to get permits for South Coyote Buttes. We couldn't decide if we should just go on our own or with guide. After exchanging email with the Dodsons at Paria Outpost and Outfitters, we decided to use them as our guide. It was the best decision!!!! The roads were really rough. They know the way, they know...

We were lucky enough, on the first try no less, to get a permit for The Wave located in North Coyote Buttes. Bret (Brent) was our guide to The Wave and it was first class!! He took us a route where we could see the dino tracks, the upper wave, and naturally The Wave itself. He then led us back... More
