We booked an all day tour with Backcountry Outfitters to see the Capitol Reef region. Bob Palin was our guide using a 4x4 vehicle to transport us through the backcountry all day. Bob was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot that day and saw beautiful scenery. Lunch was provided.

Our 4x4 tour with Bob was outstanding. Bob was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. We were with him from 9 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. He took us to some beautiful parts of the park. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the geology and the flora and fauna of the park and the surrounding area. We... More

As a result of reading about Cathedral Valley tour on Trip Advisor, we decided to take a one day tour. We weren't sure whether to take the drive ourselves or to take a guided tour. Now that we have taken a tour, this option is highly advisable for two reasons. One, the road is just very difficult to traverse. And... More

Wife and I booked all day 4x4 tour. Like other reviews we had Bob. He was terrific. Showed us all the great things to see. He was very knowledgable. We left at 9am and didn't get back until 530. One thing I recommend is go to the Subway shop next to their store and get something for lunch. The lunch... More

I was fortunate to have Bob as my tour guide for a day trip to the Cathedral Valley. Bob provided a great experience for my highly anticipated trip to this beautiful and remote place. Bob had extensive knowledge about the history, geology, flora and fauna of the area. He shared this information in an entertaining and interesting dialog that kept... More

Bob was our guide on the tour and like others here, we thought he was a fantastic guide. His knowledge of the area, geology, history and sense of humour made it an extremely enjoyable day. We ended up returning to Torrey after 6pm, so it was a very full day of extraordinary views. The area is very remote and I... More

My experience with Backcountry Outfitters Day Tours was disappointing as I payed for horseback ride and they had no horses, just one mule. They did'n refund 68 u$ although I did not make it (because I don't make "mule rides") . I payed for a horseback rides not a mule-rides. They cheated me !!!!! Dr. Marcelo Torino Buenos Aires.

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
