The activity was a once in a lifetime menorable experience. Our tour guide Hayley was one of the best tour guides we could possibly have. She was extremely knowledgeable about each location in the tour and was very nice to talk to. We went for the camping experience and she went above and beyond to set up our tents and took care of our food requirements. The entire group was very friendly and I am still in touch with all of them after the tour. Definitely recommend!

Our guide, Kevin was very knowledgeable and was attuned to our needs as we progressed through our hike. He stopped at the appropriate times explaining the different trees that made up the landscape and we everyone had caught their breathes we proceeded. The hoodoos were spectacular along with explanations regarding each of the observation points. Will definitely recommend him.

It was fun and informative. This was our 2nd visit to Bryce in a little over a year, but the first one with a guide. It was interesting to learn about the geological and human history of such a unique place. Without a guide we ooh'ed and awww'ed at the sights, but with a guide we came away with an education.

Great overview of this stunning park very good informative guide
