Let me start by saying that I didn't really know what to expect. My daughter (almost 10) and I had one day in Moab and I wanted to make the most of it. I booked a half day tour thinking that a guide would help us get the most out of our limited time. WOW! While I was right, it was our guide that really made that decision matter. Our guide was MARK TRUNZO (request him, you won't regret it). He clearly loves this area and shares with enthusiasm and vast knowledge of the area, geography, history, and the coolest views... he does a variety of tours, so even if you are looking at a different tour, see if he will take your group, totally worth it.
The outfitter was great, too. We didn't have enough people for our tour. This happens and I totally understand why they need a minimum number of participants. But instead of canceling my reservation, they just asked me if I wanted to buy the extra seat so we could have a private tour. I was grateful that they let me decide that and so glad that I did it!
All in all, this was a fantastic addition to our trip. Mark was a great guide, and he was hilarious with my (too old for her age) daughter. We just had a blast! Also, his snack game was uh-maz-ing, like choices!
