We decided to do the half-day adventure in the backcountry. Our guide, Mark T. is very knowledgeable of the Arches, flora and fauna. Saw countryside up close we've never seen before. Our two granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed their adventure during our 4 hour trip. Mark took us up to the Eye of the Whale. At that point he asked if anyone wanted to walk down to the bottom, which the oldest granddaughter took him up on his offer. On their return she had a large smile on her face of accomplishment. Our family absolutely recommends this tour to anyone young and old. Great fun and adventure.

Amazing. We had a wonderful tour guide and ended up spending the entire day doing a backcountry tour rather than just the half day. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone! We had an incredible day!

After being in Arches and viewing the popular arches I was glad my husband and I took the back country half day tour. Tower Arch was my absolute favorite even over the most popular Delicate Arch. We wouldn't have hiked to Tower Arch on our own so I would have missed what ended up being my favorite arch! Eye of the Whale arch also was very impressive again we would not have seen this arch had we not taken the back country tour. It was so serene viewing these 2 arches total peace and quiet nobody else around it was great!! Our tour guide Bill was excellent. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. We live in total flat land country so we have never experienced bouncing around in a jeep driving over huge rocks, bumpy trails, etc We were concerned that it would get to be a long slow trip it didn't! The hours just flew by.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, especially being inside the formations, walking up to the Eye of the Whale Arch, and the excellent commentary from our guide, Chip.

Several of my family and one other traveler booked this trip on a Jeep 4x4. This tour was terrific, the tour group organizers made sure we were ready to go at the precise start time, beverages and snacks were provided for us and the Jeep was air-conditioned...thank goodness as the temperature was 107 degrees in the high desert! Our tour guide was superb, friendly, knowledgeable about the park and he provided us with such good and interesting info. We had quite a few stops where we could get out, stretch our legs, walk down to arches and formations that could not be seen from the main park road. The Park is stunning and has such a history that is ever changing. I would do this again if I return to Arches!! Thank you Adrift Adventures folks!!!
