Absolutely amazing tour! Fun UTV ride off the beaten path to Crimson Slot Canyon. Lonnie was fun, extremely knowledgeable about the area and was excellent at instructing us how to get over the boulders in the canyon. John P’s. group merged with ours (only 8 of us total and I think the max is 10, so we loved that it’s a small group) There were two young elementary age girls in the group and they had a blast climbing thru the canyon! John P. is a fantastic guide as well…Lonnie & John P. make an amazing team, really fun & easy to talk to. Young or old…If you want a unique, memorable and totally fun experience that exceeds any of your expectations do the crimson tour! You won’t regret it! The beauty of it is breathtaking!

Definitely not what we expected, Meagan our guide was great, she really handled driving the UTV great. Once arriving at the Crimson Canyons is where the adventure begins, be aware that you will be climbing over boulders in some pretty tight spaces. Meagan was right there to help if needed. I do think this should be something that you are made aware of before booking the tour. The Crimson Canyons are beautiful and though somewhat difficult technically at times I am glad we did it..

This was more than I expected. It was fun and challenging beautiful views as well. Our tour guides were the best. Defiantly would recommend part of your excision package. A must DO!!

We loved the experience! It was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and so glad we did it.

Amazing guides and trip! Would definitely recommend. It was the highlight of our trip.
