Mike led our 3 families on a tour of the fiery furnace. He was super knowledgeable, kind, and allowed all to have a tremendous time while getting to learn from him and his passion for the outdoors. All 6 kids agreed that he was the coolest person they'ed ever met, and for the adults to basically agree with them really... More

I couldnt ask for a better tour guide than Mike! He took me places I would never dream of it. I had an amazing time during my trip in Moab. One of the most fun experiences I've ever had. Highly recommended, Mike deserved more than 10 stars! He's very informative and insightful.

Mike was our guide for a sunrise tour of Arches National Park. Mike was absolutely fabulous - professional, informative, enthusiastic, entertaining, really one of the best guides that we have ever used (and my husband and I frequently use private guides). Well worth getting up at 5am. We wish we had booked you for our entire stay in Moab.

If you want a learning adventure be sure to Contact Mike Coronella at Deep Desert Expeditions at 435-260-1696. We are not hikers, but he offers hikes also. We wanted to see areas and things that we could not drive to in our rental car and Mike's all wheel drive Toyota Land Cruiser did it in style. Mike took time to... More

We booked Mike to take our family party of five for a hike through the Fiery Furnace because we wanted a more bespoke personal experience of the area and also because the eldest member of our party, who was over 80, had reservations as to whether they would be able to undertake the ranger led walk. The hike completely surpassed... More

Thank you, Mike, for a most memorable experience! As you are well aware, I was most tentative about even going on this hike; your gentle enthusiasm during our phone conversation pumped me enough to at least try. Let's just say I could not have done it without you! Not only did your ability enable us to experience the magic and... More

While researching what to do in Moab, I came across info on the fiery furnace. Of course, this was a couple of weeks prior to our trip and when we tried to book the ranger tour it was booked up (so glad it was now). I found out that Deep Desert Expeditions also did guided tours and in much smaller... More

Mike runs a solo operation taking people on desert hikes, and his favorite thing to do is to take them into the Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park. His enthusiasm for the place really shows, and he is very knowledgeable about the desert. He calls it his "office." We should all be so lucky. He takes groups of no more... More

My wife and I recently spent 10 days in Moab. A local friend asked if we would like to hike one of the most scenic areas in Moab and put us in touch with Mike Coronella, owner of Deep Desert Expeditions. We really didn't know what to expect since this was our 1st Moab visit and we haven't done much... More

all the reviews for Mike are 5 star and with good reason. we just completed a two week trip to the region, with lots of guides, and they were all great, Mike however, was #1. if you only have one day to spend in Arches, spend it with Mike in the fiery furnace. doesn't matter on age, athletic ability, or...

Thanks to all these reviewers! Obviously, I love what I do--showing off the wonders of the desert. And I can do that in many other places than the Fiery Furnace in Arches (which I do visit more than anyone else!); rock art and photo tours, hiking in Canyonlands and the surrounding area, even camping and backpacking trips throughout the region.
