My dad and I were the only people on the Cathedral Valley tour with Bob, and it was a blast! Bob was extremely accommodating with letting us stop to take pictures, and he entertained us the whole drive with his extensive knowledge of the area. We stopped for a picnic lunch at a campground, but gnats drove us back into... More

We took the Cathedral Valley tour with Scott. He was very personable and knowledgeable about the area. It's a long tour-about 7 hours-but it's really something to see if you have the time in the area. The places he takes you to are really remote and are some of the best parts of the park.

The trip is only and good as the guide and Bob is one good guide: an eye for photographic opportunities, a working knowledge of the local rock formations and past lava flows up dikes still standing. We wanted to take a few side hikes and Bob knows them all and was glad to take us "behind the scenes". Cathedral Valley... More

We spent a full day in cathedral valley with our guide-Bob. Outstanding from start to finish. We saw the entire scene in Cathedral Valley-Temple of the Sun & Moon, Glass Mtn. Aside from knowing seemingly everything about the area, Bob is a professional photographer- who gave advice to this amateur. Capitol Reef is essentially 2 distinct areas-you can drive the... More

In August 2013, my family of four (including a 6 and 8 yearsold) rented a Polaris at Torrey for a 4 hours ride. We did not go very fast (we have kids) and did not notice anything wrong until the Polaris shotdown. It seems that the protective plastic shield under the polaris went off, branches went inside and pulled out... More

Had a great guide - Bob - who took us all over the park. Absolutely stunning scenery. I had seen the photos of the Sun and Moon temple on-line - but nothing compares to being there. Also - Wall of Jericho, Cathedral towers, gypsun hill - there is just so much! And Bob is a very gracious guide. Looking forward... More

When I was planning a Grand Circle trip in Utah, I posted a question about 4WD hire for the National Parks. This ended up with killer_bob, a Destination Expert here on TripAdvisor Forums for Capitol Reef, answering my question. Another member then recommended him as a guide, so I took it as a good sign and booked with the company... More

We planned to only pass through Torrey on our way to Bryce Canyon, but as soon as we drove through Capitol Reef National Park we knew we had to stay longer to explore. What a beauatiful area! We both used to ride horses as kids, so when we saw the sign for guided horseback riding at this store by the... More
