        Visiting Moab? This is a must-do trip.
        A wonderful way to see stunning views along the Colorado River. We were lucky to have great weather and knowledgeable guides in Warren and Joe who made everyone feel welcome and safe. Nine of us in the raft got just a little wet but nothing more than a ride at Disney. It was a fun, informative trip with lots of stories about the river and its stunning surroundings. Visiting Moab? Would recommend this without hesitation. 10/10.

        Best tour EVER! 10/10!!!!!
        Our experience with Navtec Expeditions was 10/10!!!! Our adventurous family has traveled a lot and been on many tours and this was our favorite one! Our tour guide Bus was second to none. His knowledge of the area is truly unparalleled. He is an ecologist and knows SO much about every rock formation, the soil, history, etc. We really enjoyed chatting with him and learning from him. He was also so incredible with our 8 and 10 year old boys. He made sure to take us places where they could not only learn, but have fun! He took them under his wing and showed them the BEST time. He is so great with kids which is a huge plus! On this trip we skiied in Deer Valley for 6 days and then spent 3 days in Moab and both my kids agreed that this tour was their favorite part of our entire trip! Arches is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been. We saw so much in our 5 hours with Bus. We felt like we really got a lot of bang for our buck. The views are absolutely breathtaking. We will never forget this tour. If you’re visiting Moab this is an absolute must!!!!

        Breathtaking Views with a Wonderful Tour Guide
        Our tour guide was Joe - and he was amazing. Personable, knowledgeable, and great with our two young children. Joe made an effort to get to know our family while giving a personal tour of the Canyonlands, and small touches like a step stool for our kids to get in/out of the vehicle, snacks for everyone, and always asking about our preferences. From a national park perspective, Canyonlands was amazing. The climb to Island in the Sky was breathtaking, and even learning about the salt pools (who knew?!) was engrossing. I highly recommend this tour operator to anyone.

        beauty, adventure, dinosaur tracks, and no waiting in line to enter the park
        Our guide asked us what our top priority was for our tour and customized it to fit what we wanted to do/see. Our favorite part was seeing the dinosaur tracks and making the hike to the secluded tower arch. We were the only ones there and it was the perfect adventure for our family with varying hiking skills and comfort levels for heights. Our guide provided snacks, water & cups, but I would suggest bringing a water bottle you can refill if you want to do any hikes.

        Perfect tour
        Our tour guide was Blaine. He was awesome. We entered through the back entrance to Arches and Blaine gave us explanations and details about the history of Arches, the land, the dinosaur footprints and how they were formed. We went on some great four wheeling rides throughout the back country. Saw some of the most outstanding rock formations and scenery. Blaine shared many stories he learned over the years from people who had worked there as the park grew up. It was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend it and ask for Blaine. This tour takes you to parts of the park visitors rarely see.

        Great tour, great guide
        We booked the Island in the Sky half day tour. Our guide was Orlando and he was an excellent guide. The tour was fun, educational and we were able to see areas of the park where we wouldn’t be able to go ourselves. Beautiful territory and the tour allowed us to see the park in a different and exciting way.

        Fun full day Westwater rafting trip. We went March 30th 2024. Navtec made things easy from start to finish. They provided appropriate gear for the season. Our guide Lake and our driver Wyatt were very friendly and professional. Lake was experienced and directed the raft like a champ. Lunch and snacks were provided. Trip lasted from about 8am to 5pm.

        Amazing Arches Tour!
        Amazing tour! Booked on a whim without much to expect and can honestly say this is the best way to experience Arches!!! Abby and Dave were amazing taking our groups on a private off road adventure, experiencing much of the lesser traveled parts of the park which made the experience even more special for my family. We ended the day winding around through the more public parts of the park which was great for the photo opportunities but full of 100's of tourists. So glad the bulk of the tour was more private, offering an experience we won't forget!

        Amazing 4 day Maze tour
        My teen son and I went on the 4 day / 3 night tour of the Maze in Canyonlands. This was an incredibly rough and isolated and remote place. It took hours and hours on very rough 4WD roads just to get there, and Charlotte drove over these insane roads with unreal skill. The hiking itinerary was perfect, we got a great exposure to the landscape, geology, and prehistory in various parts of the Maze and the adjacent Orange Cliffs. The camp sites were all magnificent, with jawdropping panoramas. The food was wonderful. Charlotte was knowledgeable about everything from cryptobiology to geology to car mechanics to cooking to wilderness survival. Really unforgettable trip to this majestic desert wilderness.

        Awesome tour with Blaine
        We had such a great time exploring some of the more remote parts of Arches with Navtec. Blaine was our guide and he made the tour both educational and fun. He's very knowledgeable of local history, and his love of the park shines through during the tour. We saw so many breathtaking views! I would highly recommend a 4x4 adventure with Blaine.

      My wife, myself, and our three sons aged 21, 16, & 14, did the Rock of Ages canyoneering and rappelling trip in July 2020. Mike was our guide. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had. It was grueling, and sometimes scary for an old guy with a fear of heights. But Mike was absolutely awesome. He coached us up through the tight chutes, taught us how to shimmy between tight rocks to avoid water below, and was a fantastic coach and leader when it came to rappelling. He was receptive to when the group needed breaks, and kept it fun the whole time. He was also very knowledgeable about the the local geology and history of the area. Thanks Mike for an awesome day!

      My family and I went to Moab and did two tours with Navtec. We did the 4x4 tour in Canyonlands to Island in the Sky and we did Canyoneering. I am in the travel industry so travel frequently and have used many different tour guides/tour companies and we had such an amazing experience with Navtec. From the time we made the reservation and the helpfulness of the reservation assistants to the trips themselves, everything was perfect.

      For the 4x4 tour, our guide Mick took us on an incredible off-road trip throughout Canyonlands. He showed us all the sites, took us to the best photo spots (and even took a LOT of photos for us), and told us some great history and stories. He was fantastic with my two kids and we felt like we got such a great tour of Canyonlands that we would not have gotten if we did it on our own.

      For canyoneering, I went with my teen and neither of us had done it before. We went with Meg and Mike. With Mike's experience and their encouragement and confidence, we conquered heights that we didn't think possible (and only freaked out a little bit). My teen who was scared and said that she didn't want to do anymore after the first rappel, ended the day by saying she can't wait to do it again. Feeling like you're with someone who will keep you safe is the most important thing when trying something new (like going over a canyon), and they definitely made us feel that way. Plus, they were incredibly knowledgeable on the parks themselves and just all around, fun people to be with.

      When we come back to the area, we would definitely use NAVTEC again and recommend it to others.

      My husband and I were lucky enough to spend a full day with Mike for a morning tour of Arches and canyoneering in the afternoon. It was absolutely amazing. Mike knows the park like the back of his hand and was able to show us the most breathtaking scenery without the crowds. He even skipped the line to enter the park by off roading through a back entrance. Mike made us a delicious lunch out at Anniversary Arch and we were the only people there. After lunch we headed off to our canyoneering adventure. I have a pretty significant fear of heights but was determined to do it anyway. Thank goodness for Mike...he was patient, kind, and encouraging and we ended up doing a repel down 110'. I cannot recommend Navtec and Mike highly enough. Mike is knowledgeable, FUNNY, and a pleasure to spend a day with. Did I mention he's handsome with a great smile? Navtec is a first class tour operator that makes client safety and satisfaction a top priority.

      From the initial communication, Navtec was very easy to work with. We’d never done a canyoneering experience before, but were intrigued by the adventure to allow us to see the canyons in a different way.

      Katy was our guide for the four hour trip, which took us to a location that was not heavily trafficked. We hiked to the top of the canyon, where we had an amazing view of an arch with no one else around, and then we made our way down via three different canyon wall repels.

      Katy was a fantastic guide. Very personable, professional, knowledgeable of the area, and we felt 100% safe at all times with her. Very important when repelling off a canyon wall for the first time!We highly recommend this experience for those who are active and adventurous.

      Terrific experience. Rappelling was absolutely amazing and exhilarating. I was initially surprised by the difficulty of some of the physical challenges in getting to and out of the rappelling locations. Included the need to bridge and chimney to get to places (apply pressure to two rock faces with hands and feet to “walk” up or over things). But our guide (Mike) was excellent and gave us the right mix of instruction and freedom to get through each one. Each one of our group accomplished things that on first look we weren’t sure we could do and were elated when we did it.

      In addition to getting us through the canyons, Mike had a wealth of knowledge about plant life, geology, and history that made for fascinating conversation while we hiked. He packed a great lunch too!

      Tons of fun, worth every penny. Will absolutely be back and use Navtec again.

      This was a great experience. We are a family of five with kids from 9-14 with very little to no rappelling experience. We were all a little nervous but our guide Mike was excellent. It was clear that safety was always first and he provided us with a day we will not forget. He was knowledgeable and patient and did a great job coaching one of our kids through his fears and into a successful rappel. Would highly recommend this experience.

      Hands down the best family experience we’ve ever had. My husband and I took our 7 year old daughter and our 17 year old son on the half day canyoneering trip. This was a first time repelling for all of us. And, both my husband and my 7 year old daughter are terrified of heights. It’s hard finding adventures together as a family when our children are10 years apart in age. We were all incredibly nervous. But, Chris and Mike were amazing. They were kind, calm, professional, and knew just what we needed when we needed it. They kept my daughter safe and I can’t say enough wonderful things about how trustworthy they are. Chris kept a watchful eye on my daughter and I am just in awe of how willing she was to walk over the edge, with no tears or concerns, when Mr. Chris was on the rope. Mike was just the best. He knew how to get my husband through the scary parts. He made us laugh, explained everything we would be doing, and made my nervous mom moments disappear. We will definitely be back again to visit Mr. Mike!!

      My family had an awesome and memorable time with our guide Mike in Bow and Arrow Canyon near Moab. At the beginning of the day, my children had some worried looks and nervousness on what was to come. Four repels later, my children got over their fears and were all smiles thanks to the one of best guides I have had the chance to meet. Mike was professional, humorous, knowledgable of the area, and helped the whole family out learning how to repel. Mike orientated everyone to the gear, we put on harnesses, grabbed our helmets and gloves and we were off. The hike was great at our pace. Mike took time to point out all the sights and goings on (including watching the ATV negotiate one of the toughest spots on the Poison Spiker Mesa trail). Mike took our new Christmas picture next to Longbow Arch. He then began learning the ropes literally! I never felt unsafe at anytime. We began with an orientation to the correct gear usage and form. We then progressed to repel with a smaller ledge. We then progressed to 130 ft decent! This is where Mike shined getting helping the kids overcome their fear and complete the repel. We finished up with two more repels. Along the way the boys learned how to freshen up in the desert, my daughters how to ready the ropes. This is my second NAVTEC led adventure. Boy- they deliver an excellent adventure. We are all hooked novice canyoneers now thanks to Mike and NAVTEC!

      Mike was so helpful during our first rappelling experience! He was so patient with my husband who is petrified of heights and my 10yr old who was pretty nervous! But he was funny and made us feel confident! It was my son's favorite thing in our 10 day journey Out West, and my husband is now less scared of adventures like this! He is considering it again even!! This is a guy who won't even ride tall roller coasters, let alone rappel down a 150ft cliff... and he felt so accomplished. AND he didn't divorce me right after!!!

      This was the highlight of our trip to Moab. It was so much fun, our guide was super knowledgeable about the area in terms of nature and local history, in addition to his experience in canyoneering. Not going to lie, I was super nervous to head backwards down a cliff attached to a rope, but it was an amazing experience and our guide made us all feel safe. I’d recommend this tour for anyone visiting Moab, our teenage kids loved it, too.
