For the strong hiker with an interest in the beauty of the southwest this is an ideal adventure. The group leaders Darrell and Paula McMahon are gems, as seen in their helpfulness and knowledge. In all, a wonderful experience. Lee Ross

For me, Calf Creek Falls hike was the high point of the trip. Challenging without becoming onerous, beautiful landscape replete with flowers, lovely waterfall.

The Escalante Staircase was a wonderful trip full of amazing diversity of geological features and habitats and stunning views!

My wife and I enjoyed this tour immensely. Our satisfaction is based on the variety of hikes, the pace, the geology we saw of the Escalante Nat’l Monument, Bryce and Zion NPs, the fantastic photographic opportunities, great weather, and splendid food, especially dinners and great desserts at the Cowboy Blues restaurant in Escalante. Darrell and Paula were excellent tour guides, they knew their trails, the geology, biology, and had funny stories to tell and were very accommodating. We would not have been able to select the hikes, drive to them, learned about the geology and history of the area on our own especially in only six day. We truly enjoyed our trip!
