How's the route? Prob you'll get to Moab and yes it still can be hot out there. Grand canyon south rim is at 7000' so it will be cooler. Do you have a link for this trip? We never done a guided tour but always drove ourselves.

Yes it will be hot in the desert and in Salt Lake City, Las Vegas and even Denver and Rapid City. Cooler temps in Black Hills and Yellowstone/Tetons/Jackson WY, with evening drops in temperature. You will need a lightweight jacket the first 1/2 of the trip. Temps will drop a little bit in the evening in Bryce and Moab. For more information on each park check www.nps.gov then search for each location. There will be weather information on the pages. Yellowstone is www.nps.gov/yell Grand Canyon is www.nps.gov/grca

There's no Moab in this trip. Page also can be pretty hot. Bryce, Zion and to Page in one day. Yikes.

This is why I don't recommend bus tours.
