What You Can Expect
Named after the Mormon Pioneer Ebenezer Bryce, Bryce Canyon became a National Park in 1924. Bryce is famous for its unique geology, which consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosional force has shaped the colorful limestone rock of the Claron Formation into bizarre shapes, including slot canyons, windows, fins and spires called hoodoos. Tinted with colors too numerous and subtle to name, these whimsically arranged rocks create a wondrous landscape of mazes, offering some of the most exciting and memorable walks and hikes imaginable. A must see!
Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert provinces in Southwestern Utah, Zion National Park protects 229 square miles (593 square km) of dramatic landscape with sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs. The unique geography and wide variety of life zones within the Park make Zion significant as a place of unusual plant and animal diversity. Discover the natural grandeur of Zion as you admire high plateaus, a maze of narrow, deep, sandstone canyons with striking rock towers and beautiful. Kolob Arch, the world's largest arch, is just one of many beautiful structures that await you on this exciting adventure!
It was what I expected and more. I only had a few days in Vegas and I wanted to make the most of my trip to view the national parks nearby.
My guide was Dennis who was very knowledgeable about the parks but more importantly, he placed our safety as his top priority. Besides facts and trivia about the parks, he was very familiar with all the routes and the weather, which was very useful as my group encountered a snow storm. He kept calm and collected throughout the whole ordeal and my group felt very safe.
The tour provides a small breakfast and lunch but it also provides a few amenities like blankets and bottles of water to make the long trip as comfortable as possible which I believe made a huge difference.
Do consider this tour if you're looking at visiting Bryce and Zion in a day to take some awesome photos!
PS, this trip doesn't cover the coveted Angels Landing at Zion if you're wondering.
Driver was great and friendly. Small bus, with just 10 of us, which makes the trip much more easygoing....
Bryce is incredible!!!!!! One of the nicest viwes I have ever seen.
Outstanding trip. Driver guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. Zion and Bryce Canyon are spectacular and definitely worth the long day.
What a great trip. Marty made a very long day just breeze by! He was very knowledgeable about the area. Because of a rock slide at Zion, we had to cancel that leg of the trip but Marty made up for by taking us to more stops at Bryce. The breakfast was more than adequate and the lunch even better--all provided as part of the tour price. Also, as the temps. were near 100 degrees, Marty had two coolers full of refreshing water. This trip was so-o worth the 15 hr. day.
A fantastic experience a great day's trip. Tour leader Kevan was full of knowledge about the sights.
Would have appreciated being able to travel into Bryce Canyon but understood the time constraints. Julian was a good guide.
I really enjoyed this trip. It was a long one from Vegas, but our guide was knowledgeable and i got to hike in a beautiful national park
I highly recommended the Zion and Bryce Canyon Day Tour offered by Adventure Photo Tours of Las Vegas. The beauty and uniqueness of these two locations is amazing! I took this tour in July of 2015, and found it to be one of the best day tours I have taken from Las Vegas. From start to finish, this was a well planned tour. Our guide, Dennis, was very professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, and patient. The van was comfortable, the lunch and snacks were good, and we made frequent bathroom and convenience stops. Our guide really wanted us to have a great experience and made an abundant number of excellent photo stops. Please note that this is definitely a 14 1/2 to 15 hour tour because you see many sights and cover a long distance. It is a long and tiring day, but well worth the investment of time and cost. If you want to get away from Vegas for a day, then this tour is an excellent choice.
The two canyons are completely different from each other and the trip provided an enjoyable and interesting contrast.
It was amazing!! Loved every minute of it
