This is a review of our second tour with Deep Desert Expeditions (DDE). Our first was in 2016. Our most recent was a few days ago. Both were Excellent! Our recent outing was a half-day tour of Canyonlands National Park. Our guide was MC.

My wife and I are in our 70s. We were traveling with fiends in their 60s. As with our first tour in 2016 (when we had a different guide from DDE) MC first asked us about our interests and our abilities (or lack thereof). Although we are in good health for our age, we are not experienced hikers and live in a low elevation, flatland area. Not being sure of our abilities we asked for something easy. He took us on a couple of beautiful hikes that were just right for our abilities and which we NEVER would have found or tried without an experienced guide to lead us. He also took us on a 4x4 trail for some great views. We even had time to visit the sites to see the petroglyphs and dinosaur tracks.

MC even helped us with some dinner recommendations (which were excellent!) and some recommendations for other sights for us to see while visiting Moab (again, excellent!).

Our traveling companions were equally impressed. I would highly recommend Deep Desert Expeditions and MC for a tour if you are in their area!

We enjoyed our 2 half day tours in Arches and Canyonlands. MC was knowledgeable & entertaining & kept us moving to be able to see both parks.

Also MC provided great recommendations on what we should do by ourselves each afternoon following our tours.

We would recommend using Deep Desert Expeditions and MC as a guide! Thank you for an enjoyable time!

MC asked what we wanted and being newbs to Moab, we deferred to him. He took us to out of the way places that the rookie or casual visitor never sees. His knoweldge of history both ancient and new was top notch. He gave us ample opportunity to explore on our own as appropriate which added to the "adventure" factor. And the dude knows how to work an iPhone camera. He captured great family shots (kudos to the pano shots on the rim).

MC has been an avid outdoor guide for years and it definitetly showed! The Williamson Family says THANK YOU!

I'm so glad I booked with Deep Desert Expedition. Totally was worth the private tours I went on in and around Arches NP. MC was my fantastic guide.

We went on hiking trails to arches and petroglyphs. He is well versed in the geological landscape so I learned much of the surrounding area. Even did 4-wheeling on some of the back roads.

Would not have seen a quarter of the places MC took me to.

He was even available afterwards to give advice on other hikes and places to eat too.

MC made our trip to Moab! Hands down the best guided private tour in town. We have a family of four - two sons age 14 and 12. Adventurous and curious explorers with lots of questions.

MC wonderfully took us off the beaten path, to hidden locations away from the crowds, experiences you could only find after a lifetime of living here. And he did this with a wonderful, knowledgeable and kind demeanor that is a hallmark of a wonderful tour guide. He was like walking with one of your coolest friends, learning about the surroundings through stories and having good laughs along the way. My kids told us at our departing dinner that MCs tour was the highlight of the trip! Quite an endorsement from two very tough critics.

We’ve traveled the world and had plenty of guides. MC is at the top of the list. Highly recommend if you want a day to have Arches and Moab all to yourself.

Passionate, expert, trustworthy, dynamic, entertaining and thoughtful.
If these traits are what you're looking for in a private guide near Moab, Utah, you can't do better than MC who introduced himself to us as "Notorious MC".
Do yourself a favor and hike the greater Moab region with this remarkable man.

I 100%recommend this company! MC made our trip! He took my bestie and I on a completely unique experience based on what we wanted to see. We originally booked one full day to see Canyonland Park; it was amazing! My favorite part was he had us go along a creek bed ahead of him so we could experience/explore on our own for a few. We had such a great day; we booked again and spent the following afternoon with him at Arches. We had full days of hiking and exploring without being in crowds. Thank you again MC for an unforgettable experience!!

Our group of 4 had an amazing full day of hiking at Moab in and around Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and other areas, less traveled and outside the parks with our guide Michael Constantine. MC is experienced, knowledgeable and a great communicator. We saw spectacular vistas and learned much of the geology of the area with little site of other tourists. He knew where to go and when to be there. MC also shared options for our group to explore on our own after our terrific day. He suggested a route for us that afforded the opportunity for several more great hikes on our way to Zion. Highly recommended for a thrilling, safe, enjoyable experience.

Mike picked us up at our resort at 7:30 am and we did not return till 3:30 pm! Early morning starts for Arches is the way to go. He took us to different arches and told us about them. He went into detail about the fauna, flora, and the different strata of time on the rock. He walked with us at our pace and pointed out so many interesting things…we saw mule deer and spotted lizards, besides explaining how some plants and bushes survive in the desert. I had a list of places that we wanted to see and he took us to all of them plus more! If there was an arch we wanted to hike out to he was right there with us! It was definitely the way to visit Arches, my husband and I said afterwards it wouldn’t have been the same to walk it on our own.
