Excellent Trip - We only had 5 people so it was a bit more personal. Superb scenery with stunning landscapes and color. Superb for photography. 2nd only to the Valley of The Moon Tour, but should not conflict in term of time overlap. Go early to avoid crowds andante better lighting
Really enjoyed this tour, and the colours in the valley were spectacular. Only four in the group with a mix of Spanish and English speaking. He took time to explain geology features, and did not rush us.
