I had so much fun on this trip! Our group started around 7am (before the park opens, so you save on the park entrance fee), and then ended around noon. It was such an absolute... read more

I had so much fun on this trip! Our group started around 7am (before the park opens, so you save on the park entrance fee), and then ended around noon. It was such an absolute pleasure having Mike as our guide. He has so much experience, is so charismatic, and made sure our tour was special. He made sure to... More

I wanted to book two custom photo tours and reached out to Mike for recommendations and pricing. Mike was very upfront regarding pricing and there wasn’t much back and forth making me a happy customer. He accommodated my specific requests and planned the tours accordingly. I visited Arches National Park (for sunrise), Goblin Valley State Park, Canyonlands National Park, Dead... More

My husband and I booked two tours with Deep Desert Expeditions in advance of our visit to Moab. On our first day, we scheduled a 4 hour private hike to see petroglyphs with Charlie. He was knowledgeable and taught us a lot about Moab history, and the early inhabitants. He also taught us about some of the native plants. We... More

We booked an all day private (for 2) tour of the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. Because of the heat, we met our driver/guide at 7 am and she drove the vehicle toward the park. There were a couple stops before we entered the park that were well worth seeing. Petroglyphs, rock climbing walls, vistas, vistas galore! Our guide... More

Decided to splurge on a guided tour and so happy we did!! Mary was our guide; funny, smart and great at helping us to slow down and enjoy the beauty! Mary was also excellent at supporting everyone in the group through more technical areas! Mike was great with scheduling and answering questions about the tour as well as restaurant, etc.... More

Only 2 of us were on this hike with Charlie, a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. It was a unique experience, and one that should be included in everyone's visit to Arches National Park. As long as you are somewhat agile and healthy, you will thoroughlyh enjoy the experience.

I saw this hike highly recommended on TripAdvisor and since it required a permit I assumed it had really cool topography, requiring protection. I was not disappointed as it was beautiful. Ranger guided tours fill almost immediately when opened for busy times of the year like my week so I was initially disappointed to use a company. I was so... More

This is my first time writing a tripadvisor review but I couldn't not leave a stellar review for this company and our guide, Charlie. I don't usually do guided tours but since this area requires a permit and the ranger led tours have many people, I opted to spend the money on an organized hike. Money well spent 10 times... More

We went on this tour with our guide Mary. Wow what a great experience! We weren't sure about how difficult it would be but Mary sized everyone up and made the perfect experience for our group. Ranger led tours contain too many people and they do not get to see some of the unique places that we were guided to.... More

We had the most amazing hiking experience to fiery furnace. Charlie was patient, extremely knowledgeable and kind. My sister-in-law was very hesitant and nervous and he was right there with her, encouraging and assuring her she could do it. He would physically help her when needed. He would stop and point out interesting facts along the way. It is a... More
