This was our favorite experience from our Utah family vacation. And that is saying a lot since all of the Utah national parks and several state parks were on our itinerary. Jim was experienced, knowledgeable, and very patient with our somewhat timid girls. We headed...More

Slot canyon guide in Escalante, Utah, a cute southern Utah town. I had a private guided trip to a remote canyon. This was the real thing, not the canyons that all the other companies take people to. We saw no other tourists while we were...More
