What people are saying about Springdale

The excursion was great. Films were played during the bus ride and something was explained in between. We had several stops and even got a 20% discount at the souvenir shop. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to hike at Zion National Park. However, we had a longer stop at Bryce Canyon where we were given packed lunches for a nice hike with a great view. The trip was definitely worth it and we would definitely recommend it. But if you want to go hiking a lot and for a long time, you should plan the trip yourself.

Brandon was a very knowledgeable guide. He was able to answer all of our questions and gave great information in regards to how the area was formed millions of years ago and the types of minerals that layered the large landscape. He was not in a rush and took his time on the trials noting how fast or slow our group needed or the resting that was necessary during the hike. He was a personable guide and was fun to be with. We enjoyed our time with him and in seeing the beauty of Zion.

The trip to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks was excellent. The drive is long (13 hours), but extremely scenic. The driver was knowledgeable and pointed out interesting topography and scenery. There wasn't time to hike in Zion, but we did go to several scenic locations for photos. The trip to Bryce was longer with time to hike. We were served snacks and water, and lunch. I highly recommend this trip. The bus was comfortable.

Paulie is a great tour guide. Truly did a good job the whole day and took care of the group well. Definitely recommend.

Hostess, tour guide Tricia was amazing. Nothing was ever too much. Sights out of this world, And I mean it.
