Actually took two half day rides on back-to-back days and both guides did an outstanding job adjusting to the various skill levels within the groups and everyone had a great time.

Our family (mom, dad, and adult daughter) recently did a four day mountain bike trip on the White Rim Trail (Canyonlands National Park) with Rim Tours of Moab, UT.

This trip was an experience of a lifetime to say the least. The Rim Tour guides, Beth and Buck, took EXCELLENT care of us with wonderful meals, knowledgeable information about the geology and history of the Park, support as needed while riding, and un-bottled energy throughout the day and into the night.

It is my opinion that the perfect way to see the beauty of Canyonlands National Park was from a mountain bike on the White Rim Trail during the day and then camping for the night to watch a desert sunset after a four star meal cooked by the two guides. While this would be hard to beat, the next morning's sunrise, while enjoying premium coffee (fresh roasted by Rim Tours), made it debatable as to which part of the day was best.

If this trip is not on your "bucket list" it needs to be added. If already on your list, book with Rim Tours and get it done !

Thanks, Gary! I'm speechless. That is an extremely articulate, and accurate, description of The White Rim experience. (And, though we'd like to take credit for the coffee roasting, we actually buy it from Moab Fresh Coffee, one of several local coffee roasters.) I've passed your review on to Buck and Beth - I know they'll love reading it.

Recently completed the Rim Tour, 3-Day White Rim Trip. This is a three-day mountain biking trip around through Canyonlands National Park. Could not selected a better tour company, or guides for the three days. Immediately after registering for the trip, information is provided outlining everything you may need to know, right down to a potential packing list based on the season.

Our two guides for the trip were Buck and Kirstin, could not have asked for a hardworking, more knowledgeable guides. Buck rode with us on the first leg of the trip, taking time to explain the geological features along the way, but really allowing us to ride and just enjoy the great weather and the incredible sights. He would regather everyone for lunch, where a great spread of sandwiches, salad and cold drinks were put out for the thirteen members of our group. Each mean was better than the last, the first night at dinner, our guides set out some chairs, offer some cold drinks and set out some appetizers as the sun was setting. All of this while he grill starts to heat up and dinner is being prepared. The meals were great, fish and steak during a camping trip, fantastic!

The ride was challenging due to its length, not necessarily the most technical which was fine by me as a person relatively new to mountain biking. We covered between 26-30 miles per day based on my GSP readings, but for the most part the views were so incredible I never really even noticed, just sat back and enjoyed the ride. Different members of the group set different paces and at times we were all together at others, I was alone riding through a landscape untouched by human existence, aside from the dirt road that we rode on.

Our guides worked from sun up to sun down each day. From hot coffee in the morning, to desert each evening, Rim Tours is a great tour operator. The amount of time spent just making sure that everyone was comfortable and feeling good for the day was great. The side trips that Kirstin took us on to visit the Black Gap, older ruins or some great landscape features offered nice breaks throughout the day.

Great job Rim Tours, looking forward to my next adventure with you.

Hi David. So glad you enjoyed the White Rim Trail. Your review is very accurate. The 3-day version does keep you in the saddle more hours each day, as you describe. But the view is amazing. Our 4-day version allows us more time for side trips and shorter days. Next time you visit, perhaps we can get you out to The Maze. One of the most incredible places on our planet.

This is the tour group you want to go with. Everything from pre trip planning to special meal needs was answered well before our trip. We had high expectations before the trip, but they were well exceeded. The food was excellent, the guides were fantastic. They helped us with our bikes, and gave us details of what to expect on the trail each day.

I just returned from this trip with Rim Tours--a mid-October ride on the White Rim trail. The trip was awesome! I went with Rim Tours on a mountain bike trip through the Maze District 2 years ago and knew I would return for another trip with them. Both trips were fabulous. Rim Tours is exceptionally organized and professional. I had 4 different guides and all were amazing. They were extremely kind, encouraging, knowledgeable and fun!. I did the White Rim 15+ years ago with friends without guides. I loved that trip too, but the way the guides were informed about geology, history and geography added immensely to my experience. The food was also fabulous--all fresh. It seems they thought of everything--from hot towels after the ride to lubing our chains to providing a place to shower after the trip before a long drive home. It was also great fun to meet new people to ride, eat, camp and laugh with. I highly recommend Rim Tours--both the White Rim and the Maze.
