You do not want to use this company. We took a four day raft trip with them on the Green River, and it was a disaster. The guide was never on the trip before and didn't know what he was doing. Food was terrible, and I wad to row part of the way and actually rescue our guide, who got lost on one of the trails. What a joke! I should have charged them for taking care of their "guide"

By the way, the company never responded when I wrote them a letter of complaint.

You don't want to use this company. You put your life in danger.

Awesome!!! Can't say enough about this trip!!! If you're lucky, Kevin will be your driver/guide - he made the entire trip SO much fun!!! He also shared his vast knowledge of the area! Kevin made the Lexus 4WD do seemingly impossible climbs over rock ledges and boulders and extreme slopes!! When he hollered "hold on" he meant it and you'd better be ready! Lunch was great - prepared by Kevin, then he led us through the "joint" - a very narrow slot canyon which led to Chesler Park! Also on the trip we saw remains of an old cowboy camp and some Native American features. Definitely enjoyed this all day trip and we will return to take another one of Navtec's outstanding adventures.

We did the Canyonlands/Needles/Chesler park tour with Navtec and it was amazing! The guides were very friendly and they knew what they were doing. The crazy hills and rocks we climbed in the vehicles were crazy, but they were all handled excellently. I was a littler nervous at first, but after the first couple hills were handled I wasn't nervous anymore. When we stopped for lunch the food they provided was great too. Not only did we get to fly around in an awesome 4 wheel drive vehicle, but we got to see some amazing sites, hike around, and have a blast doing it. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is up for some adventure.

The 4WD 4 hour Island in the Sky tour was fantastic. Our guide Kevin was extremely well versed in the geology of the Canyonlands area. He also shared interesting information about the history of the early inhabitants and their culture. The scenery on the tour was spectacular! He was a very safe and considerate guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone ttraveling to Moab.
