I felt like I was on the Amazing Race, visiting many locations in a short period of time yet, getting to take full advantage of all that was offered. It was AMAZING for sure! Mike Brown was a phenomenal guide and had a plethora of information and knowledge to share with us. ALL the locations visited were gorgeous and I will definitely be going back to all of them to get in some more hiking!
Fantastic tour. We saw and learned a lot about the Wild-West. Our guide Mike did a fine job! Thanks :
Awesome trip! Our guide Joe was great and the trip was very well organized. Beautiful sights. I especially enjoyed the sunrise at Monument Valley!

If anyone doubting about purchasing this trip, I want to say please don't! This trip was amazing. It was just suitable for a person like me A. who has never been camping before B. who travel alone C. who doesn't drive and D. wants to meet new people while travelling new places. The tour was simple, safe and convenient. Our tour guide Mandy was really professional and did not panic although the weather was pretty wacky throughout the tour. Tents were really clean, easy to set up and down even for a person like me who had never touched tent before the meals were good. I would recommend you to pack a little bit of snack or buy at the stores since you will get really hungry during the hiking Bathroom and shower were really clean. The best part would be the camping at the Monument valley. Although I could not see the sunrise due to rain, I hope you will be able to see that.
There are no words do describe this tour! Just book it - you won't regret! Thanks to our tour guide Mike we got all the information, facts and quotes about all the places we visited in this 3 days. It was a great experience. Just do it - do it - DO IT!
The most amazing solo trip I have taken in years. Although there is alot of driving from place to place, once you are there, it is hard to explain how amazing it is to just look at the gorgeous canyons and valleys. It was very cold sleeping in tents at night my trip was early May, but that's part of the experience and well worth the view when you wake up in the morning overlooking Monument Valley.
I wish every national park had the option of camping for multiple days. I would HIGHLY Recommend this for individuals who are solo travellers or can't get anyone to go have an adventure with them. The individuals I met also solo adventure travellers are awesomely cool people from all over the world.
Two pieces of advice:
-Don't plan on getting much sleep. You will be too busy enjoying nature for as long as possible.
-Forget using a cellphone, your phone will either die from taking pictures or from lack of signal.
I really enjoyed this tour! You visit some fantastic locations in a small group we had about 10 people. I chose camping, which was fine. The tents are high quality and we were supplied 2 sleeping bags each it gets cold at night. The food included was fairly basic, just sandwiches, fruit and packets of crisps for lunch and cereals for breakfast, though the Navajo food truck in Monument Valley was fairly good. Charge your camera batteries beforehand as there are limited options for charging devices while camping. Our tour guide Mike was terrific and willing to help whenever he could, even providing a charging strip in the minivan at one point. There were also local guides around some of the sites i.e. Navajo guides through Monument Valley and Antelope Canyon. All the places we visited were great and the tour was reasonably well timed - not to short or too long a time in any one place. If you are just thinking of visiting the Grand Canyon, do this instead. All the locations were amazing - it would be such a loss to go to Vegas or the Grand Canyon and miss the rest!
it's so amazing that we could enjoy such national parks in only 3-Days!
The tour guide provided us the essence of the parks and so on according to their professional experiences and knowledge.

It was a once in a lifetime tour for us. Tour was fantastic in all the aspects including organization, choice of accommodation and places of interest. Our guide Jennie was very knowledgeable and had all the qualities of a tour leader. Fully worth for what we spent.

Wonderful tour! We saw an enourmous amount in three days, but didn't feel rushed. The scenary is extraordinary. Tour guide Mike was brilliant and was great with our teenage boys. Highly recommended and well worth getting out of Vegas for a few days!
Absolutely fabulous trip. I thought Zion was amazing, then Bryce was even better, but I think Antelope Canyon was my favourite. The camping spot at Monument Valley was spectacular and it was great walking into the Grand Canyon. Marie was a wonderful informative organised guide. Highly recommended trip!!!
At first, probably this is my first time writing a review.
I really wanted to go to national park for few years but I dont drive so finally ended it up to join this tour. I wasnt expect so much because its only 2nights and 3days and I thought its bit short and pricy but I dont have a much choice so just joined it. And OMG.. I would say, this tour change my whole life experience! It was just most amazing scenery every single time! Our guide Marie was super chill and knowledgable and of course professional!! She managed our time line perfect also tried to help each persons preference. Tent equipment were really easy to set up and the camping stop was nice too. Ive been backpacking long time but it was most amazing one. I highly recommend to everyone. Its good price and really worthy to try. You wont miss anything. Thanks so much for this awesome journey. Never forgettable!
This trip was an awesome experience and a great glimpse into several amazing NPs out west. My favorite part was our campsite being the only ones overlooking Monument Valley The Mittens and waking up on 4th of July morning to an epic sunrise from the doorway of my tent over the Mittens! Antelope Canyon is an optional portion of this trip but well worth the extra 20 USD or so. Google Antelope Canyon and you will know what i mean!
This trip is great for all ages... on our trip it was mainly young adults but we also had a family of four with us too. We all started as individuals...but by the end of the trip everyone was taking group photos together! I personally went on this trip by myself and think this is a great opportunity for all those who really are wanderlust but not sure what NPs are calling them. Now that I know my favorite spots... I can't wait to plan out a long trip to Monument Valley and Bryce. I liked the Grand Canyon too but the crowd on a holiday weekend is a bit overwhelming.
We also had an awesome tour guide named Vern. He was super knowledgeable in each stop's history, fun and adventurous, and overall a great guide!
Fantastic, extremely helpful guide. Lots to see and lots of fun. This was a great tour in a spectacular area of the U.S.
This tour was absolutely incredible! Our guide Marie was beyond amazing and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, our group was chased by rain and storms throughout the trip which slightly affected the camping on one night, but Bindlestiff and Marie did everything they could to find an alternative. The small group was great as it felt more like friends going on a short roadtrip. This tour is very fast paced so if you're looking for something a little slower, this might not be for you. But in saying that, these three days were the highlight of my four week trip. Make sure you get up early to watch the sunrise in Monument Valley because I've never seen anything so incredible. And be sure to do the optional tour of Antelope Canyon!
Exceeded my expectations in every way. super great tour guide. New comfortable van. Good camping equipment. Everyday was jam packet with one breathtaking view after another. Highly recommend.
I am very happy that I took this trip! It was really a lifetime experience! the Tour Leader VERN was very fun and knowledgeable person who made the whole trip more memorable! Thank You Viator for this trip
Guides were great! Took my 80 year old mother in law, and we had a tremendous experience! Can't beat that!
Great tour rep was fantastic. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Great crowd. Great hotels and would do it all again
A wonderful experience and recommended without hesitation. Our very friendly and humorous Tour Leader JD from Bindlestiff Tours was very professional; his knowledge of the areas visited made it much more interesting. Our group had various nationalities and ages from 20- 60s+ which was a good mix.
The vehicles are not spacious and could be challenging if less mobile or unable to sit for long periods. It was a lot of miles to cover in the three days of the tour but breaks were frequent. Be prepared to change seats in the bus each day so everyone can have a chance to talk with others in the group while travelling and to take turns in the more comfy or window seats.
You are on a camping tour so don't be afraid to share in some of the meal preparation to help make it a more enjoyable holiday. As the token Aussie, I was nominated to help do the dinner BBQ in the campground which I enjoyed.
As a couple of very fit nearly 60 yr olds we still found the full Bryce Canyon loop hike a challenge so the full loop (about 45mins- 1 hr) is not for the faint hearted given the time constraints . But if you can do it, it is a magical hike.
Take the Antelope Canyon optional tour; you will not be disappointed! You need good mobility for the steep ladders and sometimes very narrow pathways and it is largely underground.
Watch the sunrise over Monument Valley; simply stunning.
If you can, take a helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon. It is an amazing site from the ground but from above it takes on a mind numbing perspective; unparalled beauty.
We travelled mid-October and while very warm in Las Vegas, evening and night time temperatures on the tour meant warm clothing was a necessity.
As others have said in their reviews, it is fast paced but gives you a once in a lifetime experience to see all of these attractions in a short amount of time; or a great taster to come back again and do it at a more leisurely pace. 10/10.
We loved every minute of the tour. Of course, the downside to it was we didn't have the time to enjoy everything in depth. But, there were so many upsides that we thought the tour was worth every penny spent. Thanks to our most knowledgeable driver/guide/cook, she made the three days the best three days ever. We loved Antelope Canyon. The sunrise at Monument Valley was breathtaking. The optional stop in Seligman on Route 66 wrapped up the 3 days in the best possible way.
I never dreamed that a 3-day tour such as this could have been SO wonderful! It all started out and ended with the most pleasant, enjoyable, intelligent, warm-hearted, professional and knowledgeable tour guide (JD) who made every minute of each aspect of the three days a treat, and provided a sense of awe and wonderment for all of our National Park(s) moments. The organizational aspect of the vacation was second to none. It was wonderful meeting and getting to know eleven other 'tour-buddies' from all over the globe, each sharing their histories and personalities. I’ll return to Viator and especially the tour operators from Las Vegas again, but for an extended visit in the near future! As a photographer and vacationer, I highly recommend Viator to any and all those who want to experience a jaw-dropping landscape adventure such as this in a short period of time. Rest assured, I and all my other travel mates were confidently handled with total professionalism and integrity by Viator's and the tour operator's staff , and the itineraries provided a packed 3-day agenda of visual and historic wonders. It’s too bad it had to end!
