Our family of 4 took this trip on March 24th, 2024. As the person who usually has to drive (And thus miss the scenery) I really enjoyed the trip. An amazing dirt road adventure, but with Joe, our faithful, knowledgeable, friendly and fun guide, I was at ease as we spent a half day in the backcountry. We wouldn't have seen what we saw without this trip. I could have rented a jeep - I'm so glad we didn't. Again, a Hat Tip to Joe, but also to NAVTEC which runs a very competent operation. Most impressive. We got to chat with John, the owner who shared some of his decades of experience in the backcountry while talking about some of the pictures he took in the SouthWest. A great set of memories!


Awesome rock formations, seeing longhorn sheep. Travel deep into canyon, notable movie sights for filming. Stories by our guide. EVERYTHING!


Great experience! Super knowledgeable guide! Breathtaking views! Many great photo ops! Highly recommend


Our morning tour with Kevin was outstanding; he provided a lot of background on the area, it’s geologic history, economy, and thousands of years of inhabitants including dinosaurs! It is a memorable drive in the canyon’s twists and turn’s with amazing views for miles and miles.


The views were amazing. Kevin was an amazing guide with lots of humor and information. We would HIGHLY recommend this company.


Our tour guide Kevin provided a one-of-a-kind experience that allowed us to experience Canyonlands National Park (and the surrounding areas) from the bottom of the canyon to the top of Island in the Sky! We loved seeing the petroglyphs and dinosaur footprints, as well. Our children range in age from 4 to 15 years and each one enjoyed the experience. We highly recommend Kevin at Moab Scenic Adventures!


We are from the Netherlands and we did this tour to see canyonlands and our guide, Ric Otero was amazing! He was really nice and asked us questions and told about himself. He also told us everything about canyonlands and the animals and we even saw the wild animals. This was an amazing experience, thank you!


Fun way to see Canyonlands in an intimate, AC and slightly thrilling ride. Would highly recommend this tour for visitors pressed for time.


For the full experience of Canyonlands, book this tour! Our guide, Kevin, was informative and handled the curves and cliffs of the canyon with ease. On a 100+ degree day, we were comfortable in an air-conditioned suburban between the many stops. Highly recommend!!!


Highly informative and enjoyable backcountry tour of Canyonlands National Patk with Dave of Moab Scenic Adventures. Highly recommend it.
