I did a full day tour of the Burr Trail, stopping at some amazing places along the way - photos do not do justice to the beauty of this area. Then I did an afternoon/evening tour culminating with sunset at the Cathedrals - the scenery is amazing. Bob is an experienced photographer who understood exactly what I wanted and went... More

Rented a UTV from Backcountry for a 1/2 day and had a ball driving the Great Western Trail. Folks at Backcountry were awesome and sent us to GWTrail. We were not familiar with the area or with UTV's but with their help we had a great time.

We decided at last minute to tour Catherdal valley in Capital Reef & this shop came thru. The tour guide was Kevin who was very friendly, informative, & accommodating as we like to stop & take pics. We had a wonderful day viewing the back country of Capital Reef.

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

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
