Great tour, the only way to see Canyonlands. Our tour director, Doug, was very knowledgeable and a good driver.

This was a very thrilling ride -- just enough thrill. One of our riders was extremely afraid of heights but ventured on the tour any way. While riding the White pass in Canyonlands National park, our tour guide paid close attention to her throughout that part of the journey because of the closeness to the cliffs. She was exhilarated after reaching the top! Our tour guide was informative about the different landscapes we saw and was pleasantly interactive with us.

We traveled with 1 other couple and our guide/driver Buzz. Very comfortable way to off road explore a national park. The tour was advertised as a 4 hour tour, but Buzz kept us out exploring for nearly 5.5 hours. He is a self taught geologist and was absolutely fascinating. His knowledge and willingness to share was completely engaging. The region is amazing, made even more so by somebody as well versed in the geology and history. I highly recommend this tour--particularly if you can get Buzz as your guide.

We planned a trip to Moab and Canyonlands some months ago and decided to try an 'off-road' photo tour. We were not sure how we would like it, but thought it might be the best way to get some unusual and great pics. As it turned out this tour exceeded our fondest expectations. Our guide, Mike, was so knowledgeable and helpful, we not only got some great photos, but learned some much about the traditions, geography and geology. Mike was a very careful and skilled driver and never once did we feel unsafe -- even when we ascended the 'white rim' trail up to Island-in-the Sky! Being somewhat height challenged, I admit some views were somewhat scary for me, but I never regretted going because the view at the top in the Island-in-the-sky was simply breath-taking! We did this at sunset which made it all the more awe inspiring. I will never forget this tour and if and when my wife and I return, we will definitely take another tour. I would like to thank Viator and their complete staff our thanks for a great and unforgettable tour in the backcountry of Canyonlands.

Beautiful country and this tour gives you a backstage look at the amazing sights hidden from the main road. I also loved the local history that our guide, Mike, provided. A great experience!

A great trip, a different way to see Canyonlands. We had an excellent guide who was very familiar with Moab and its history. I would recommend this trip.

It was a truly amazing adventure. Our guide for the morning was Ben. We went on the Arches tour the day before so we knew what to expect with our vehicle and quality of tour. We went to Island in the Sky part of Canyonlands. The scenery is mind boggling -- the rock formations, particularly those that include the Colorado River are incredible. We had a perfect day with the clouds cooperating for perfect photos. We enjoyed learning about the geology that transformed a sea bottom to the cliffs, plateaus and mesas was very educational. The fact that early cowboys drove cattle up the roads that we traversed was difficult to comprehend. I would highly recommend the tour and Ben. I will add that the one lane dirt road up to the top is a bit exciting. And, looking down from Thelma and Louise point is exhilarating.

Nice trip, wished weather was with us. Our guide was very knowledgeable, a hiker and climber himself which is a definite plus for a tour like this. We were able to collect some nice fossils just outside of the park, and explore beautiful landscapes.

We enjoyed our tour with Lolly, the driver and guide, to Canyonlands and can't say enough about the fantastic time we had! We drove the back roads and saw Indian petroglyphs, some wildlife and amazing views. Lolly was very knowledgable about the park and shared more about life in Moab as well. Lolly wanted us to see a special spot for sunset and it was truly spectacular. Highly recommend this tour and ask for Lolly!

We drove up the face of a canyon! And Rob knew so much about the history and geology of the Canyonlands. The highlight of my trip.

Buzz, our guide, was fantastic. What a geography, geology, archeology, history and sightseeing adventure all rolled into one. NAVTEC really made our trip to Utah one we will never forget. If we had it to do over, we would have spent even more time in Moab so we could experience even more adventures than this plus the Arches National Park 4X4 adventure.

Wonderful half-day exploration of Canyonlands. Larry was a terrific guide he taught us so much about the Park and Moab in general, which was exactly what we needed as first-time visitors. We hope to return someday!

The trip was fun. Chris did an excellent job showing off that part of the canyon. the climb out was a series of steep cutbacks with little room for error. Plenty of photo ops and a great explanation of the canyon. The stop for close ups of Monitor and Merrimac was a bonus

We thoroughly enjoyed this 4X4 tour of Canyonlands. The guide was very knowledgeable and gave us an incredible tour. We took three tours with Navtec this week, this one to Canyonlands, an equally incredible 4X4 tour to Arches, and a great raft trip on the Colorado. Everyone was great, all guides were courteous and knowlegeable, and we highly recommend these trips.

We wanted to go on this tour because we had visited Canyonlands before and saw the road down inside. This tour helped us understand the vastness of Canyonlands, as we only saw a tiny portion. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed out many things we would not have otherwise known. The guide made the ride enjoyable for my son as he took advantage of the 4X4 and explored the terrain. If you want to confront a fear of heights, this is the tour to take. I have that phobia, but overcame it to enjoy the trip. This is the best tour we could have booked to accomplish our desire to travel inside the canyon, other than taking one or more days.

If you want to see the bottom of Dead Horse State Park Overlook, take this trip. You will get to see some impressive sights. Our guide Larry was very informative. My only suggestion is not get the truck he drove. It's name was Big Drops. If you need air conditioning, this ride doesn't have it continuously. It failed near the end of the trip and it was 110 degrees that day. But hey, the humidity is low!!

I was stuffed into the very back seat of a 4x4 that did not have enough room for a small child let alone a 56-year-old man. I was traveling alone and was told my seat would be in the third row of the vehicle. One window was blocked on the side because the other half-seat was up against the window due to storage of items in the vehicle. The view out of the window next to me was below my line of vision because of the placement of the third seat above the gas tank. I was sitting on a seat that was 2 inches above the floor and my legs were squeezed behind the seat in front of me. Other touring company vehicles had longer vehicles with real third seats and entrances from the back. It was a very claustrophobic and uncomfortable 4 hours. It was hard to see the sites and I could not hear the driver speaking about the sites. The driver should have announced that all 5 passengers would rotate their seating after each stop. This was not what I paid for and I will not travel with Viator or its contractors again. Make sure that you know what vehicles your company is using.
