Great experience. We went on the winter tour with Joel which was a great experience! Beautiful weather and beautiful hiking. Will be returning for sure!!

I took my 10-year old daughter on the three-day national parks Winter tour. We were part of a group of 9 and had a wonderful time. Every aspect of the trip was well-organized. Our tour guide, Chris P, is knowledgeable and considerate. We were given good info ahead of time about each place and ample time to explore upon arrival, never feeling lost or rushed. We loved everything especially the hiking in Zion NP and having lunch in a Navajo family's kitchen! Amazing views and experiences!

Chris was a fantastic guide and an excellent driver. Fantastic people skills.
Bryce, Antelope, Monument Valley, Grand......they are all amazing.
Surpassed all expectations, especially our tour guide Jon who was more than qualified and had a TON of knowledge about every place we went to and its history, super interesting. The places were breathtaking as well! Would definitely recommend. :)
The size of the brigade is moderate, the tour guide and driver experience and knowledge are rich, the work is full of enthusiasm, the passengers are also very patient, the mastery of the trip is very good, let me enjoy this trip very much.
Had the most amazing 3 days. Credit to Jon, who was the best tour guide ever. Full of knowledge, hilarious and just generally a very friendly guy! The mini bus was comfy, and we stopped for numerous comfort stops. All three days we saw some amazing sights and we had ample time to explore! 100% go with these guys and hopefully you'll be lucky enough to get Jon!!
I had a really fantastic time on the 3 day National Parks Winter tour!! We visited Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Upper Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Zion National Park. Amidst all the tour options, I was looking for one that would be authentic. This tour company really delivered on that! Our tour guide Jon was very knowledgeable about our destinations, the history and he was full of great jokes and hilarious stories, which made the drives between each places enjoyable. We covered a lot of destinations in 3 days, and had a good amount of time at each to properly explore so I didn't feel rushed. One thing of the memorable things was the lunch spot they took us to after Monument Valley. We had a Navajo taco at a Navajo home. It was like walking into someone's home and eating their home cooked meals. Absolutely great, you can't get that kind of authentic experience anywhere else! These guys really know how to give you the authentic experience! Highly recommend exploring the red rock America with them! Amazing time!
We had booked the 3 day winter tour and experienced a spectacular day. The views were unbelievably impressive. But what made the trip so memorable was our tour guide John who did an excellent job of providing us with all the information we could have wished for. Not only that- he brought the Wild West back to life by telling us stories so vividly that one felt one really had a glimpse of the difficulties people had to survive when moving West. Thanks a lot, John!
3 Day Winter Parks Tour. We had a great 3-day tour. Jenni was a great, knowledgeable and very organized tour guide. There are so many fabulous places, Even though the 3-day tour was only a whistle stop tour, it gave us a great taste of the places covered, and Jenni worked to maximize our time at each place to see... Zion was my favorite, followed by the sunrise at the Grand Canyon, and the helicopter flight is highly recommended. Fantastic tour!
Jennie rocks! With superstar guide Jennie in the driver's seat we ventured out on a three day national park winter tour. Jennie generously shared all of her geology /rock knowledge with us and took us safely from one amazing spot to the next. Excellent trip that I highly recommend!
Expect the unexpected. We were lucky enough to experience just that on our 3 day Winter tour. Despite a 3 day rain forecast, we were able to experience seeing the Grand Canyon in a snowstorm, Monument Valley under eerie cloud with a Navajo guided Jeep tour through mud and snow, Antelope Canyon during a sunny break before soft white cloud descended, Horseshoe Bend with a layer of cloud which highlighted the amazing colors and finally Zion National Park through rain, snow and sun. I can assure you motels and food options are all you need at the end of a long day. This tour went way beyond our expectations. Expect the unexpected, because I imagine every tour is unique. Our tour group were lovely and it was a pleasure to meet them. Lastly, this tour would not be the same without our amazing guide Jennie. Her wealth of knowledge and spirit was by far the tours greatest asset. I certainly look forward to doing another tour in the future. Cheers guys, great job!
We recently went on the 3 day Winter Tour visiting Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon and Zion National Park. We spent New Year's Eve at the Grand Canyon where it was snowing quite a bit. This was amazing - we never thought we would be so lucky to experience this. Joel was our tour guide, and was a master at covering every aspect of our tour. He was on his toes a bit having to deal with the snow and getting everyone to where they wanted to be.Monument Valley was a bucket list item for us, and to see that also under snow is something we will never forget. It was a packed 3 days, and we got to see so much. It was a real highlight of our whole holiday.
Grand Canyon & Monument Valley in the snow - Stunning- thank you! We did the 3 day winter tour of Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon and Zion National Park. It was a full on itinerary but we managed to fit everything in. As a sun loving Aussie - nothing can prepare you for seeing Grand Canyon and Monument Valley under snow. Simply amazing. We planned our whole . holiday around this tour, and to have such a great experience is something we will always remember. Also, nothing can prepare you for how cold it is at Antelope Canyon at 8am - it was an experience! Despite doing so much, it never felt rushed. Joel did a great job staying on top of everything - particularly with the amount of snow on the roads on the first day. Loved the accommodation - it was nice to get to a nice warm, comfy room at the end of the night. Food options were given each night ... my only suggestion might be to include a tour dinner on the last night.
Wonderful Tour! We had a wonderful tour last week with Joel in the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Zion. Despite the very cold weather and the snow, our guide Joel managed to take us everywhere that was planned, except the helicopter tour above the Grand Canyon that was cancelled because of the blizzard. The hotels we slept in were fine and there were many restaurants around for dinner in the evenings.Â Joel is a safe driver and a very interesting guide. Being a small group of 14 was nice and we met American but also Australian people. Even if my husband doesn't understand the language (we are French) he also very much appreciated this tour. I highly recommend this tour and Joel our guide.
Terrific Three Days. Just returned from a wonderful three day tour made all the more enjoyable by the knowledge and wit of our guide Jon. Even though it was freezing cold in the Canyon and Monument valley, we had the advantage of no crowds. This is a great time to visit, Zion was a highlight as the weather was fine and spectacular scenery, really enjoyed seeing and learning so much in the short time
Great Winter National Parks Tour from Las Vegas. It was hard to fit everything in because of the short days but we did. The guide (Joel) was safe careful driver and excellent company - very knowledgeable and a good communicator. The two hotel used were great. There were many eating options available each night. Everything was as advertised. We can highly recommend the trip.
Well Balanced Winter Park Tour From Vegas. Went with my son. Had a great time. Driving, viewing and hiking were well balanced, without too long drives. Was a good time to visit, despite cold, as crowds were down. Our guide Jon Maret was awesome. Comedian, fount of knowledge, he really looked after us and took trip to a higher level with all his insights and stories. I really liked the hiking parts. Tour was also flexible (older people could walk less). Overall, highly recommended
Winter national parks tour from Las Vegas. Excellent itinerary/ schedule and tour guide, Joel - tour was packed with learning, fun and beautiful sights that my friends and I have thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend to family and friends. Definitely keen to join other tours on our next visit to the States. Thanks!
Wonderful experience....Joel shared a wealth of knowledge - my favorite part...we covered a lot ground in 3 days...weather was perfect...although colder than I anticipated we were fine with our attire....bring layers, hat, gloves, warm coat ....day 1 - grand canyon walk & sunset & Route 66 stop; day2-grand canyon sunrise was brrrr cold. Monument Valley - jeep tour - Navajo tacos- big bend - lake Powell stay; day 3 - antelope canyon, glen canyon dam, horseshoe bend, Zion NP. Day 3 was my favorite but all were great - could never of such a great tour on your own for the price it is a best value. Thank you!
Absolutely Epic Trip! Like the others here, I too had an absolutely fantastic trip with Joel. You can tell that he is a person that loves what he does, and his enthusiasm for the southwest rubs off on everyone else. We all had a splendid time and I would recommend this tour and Joel to anyone. I plan to go on another trip with them when I can.
We took the 3 day National Park Tour (hotel in March) tour. Rachel was our guide. She was incredibly competent, knowledgeable, accommodating, and prompt. Our van was full and by the end of the first day we were acquaintances with everyone. The sites were stunning and she was always looking out for the safety of her guests. Early morning breakfast (0530) at to watch the sunrise on the Grand Canyon was stunning. Antelope Canyon was my second favorite!! Viewing Horseshoe bend, Zion, Monument Valley, Lake Powell and a glimpse of the Hoover Dam were incredible. The days flew by. We had such a great time with Bindlestiff that we booked another 1 Day tour while in Vegas to see Death Valley. The guide( a local Iowan) was fabulous as well. We are looking ahead to see when we can hop on another, perhaps Canada next! So glad you've expanded there as well. As guided tours go it is one of (if not thee) best value there is coming out of Las Vegas.
Our tour guide was Mike. Mike was very nice, funny and considered guide. We visited Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Monument Valley on Navajo Reservation and Zion. The accommodations during the stays were great. Mike would recommend places for dinner and they were excellent. The sights were wonderful. I had a great time. I would definitely do this trip again or any other ones, which are offered by this company.
Enjoyable 3 day tour. Wonderful scenery. Mike was a great guide. Only myself (David Skerman) and 2 others on this particular tour. Overnight accommodation good. Helicopter flight over Grand Canyon a must do. Monument Valley and the 4WD tour with Indian Guide amazing. Added the Antelope Canyon tour. Definitely worth it for the scenery. I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Mike.
I have recently done the 3 Days Winter Tour to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Zion National Park and can highly recommend it! Mike, our tour guide, did an awesome job, giving us great insights about the places we visited. Thanks to his fun stories and the beautiful scenery also the drives between the places flew by quickly. Our group, consistent both of families and individual travellers, bonded very well thanks to the great and relaxed atmosphere Mike created. The trip was well-organized, non-rushed and a great way to see the highlights around Las Vegas with a small group!
I did this tour with my husband and 2 adult sons, in the final week of a 5 week trip to USA from Australia. It was definitely a highlight of our time in USA; not only were the sites remarkable, but our tour guide Mike (Shaggy) was the best- funny, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, endearing. He also punched above his weight in doing everything possible to accommodate and care for my son when he was ill. We all fully recommend this tour- brilliant.
We travelled with our 2 adult sons. There were only 4 others on the tour. Our tour guide Mike was incredibly knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. He went beyond his job description in looking out for our son when he became ill. We highly recommend the tour which was amazing. We were lucky with the weather in mid-January, sunny skies and low numbers of other tourists.
It was a great trip! We were a group of 10 people, in a comfortable van. Day one covered Grand Canyon, day 2 Monument Valley, and day 3 Antelope Canyons and Zion. The visits generally did not felt rushed, providing opportunities not only to take pics, but to take a breather and relax. I should further add that our tour guide Mike made this trip much better than just a good trip. He was contagiously happy and a tourist at heart!
Fantastic tour with our guide, Mike who was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. Visiting the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Zion Park, all were amazing sights and Mike knew exactly when and where to go to get the best view. Highly recommend.
I truly enjoyed this winter trip. The activities, places visited, and schedules all concurred as advertised. The van and motels were safe and comfortable. The two Navajo tour guides were fantastic, specially the guide named Natalie at the Antelope Canyon, who really knew how to take great photos for us. I like Jon Maret, our driver and main tour guide. He was friendly and has great personality. He drove safe and explained a lot of things to us. He knew so much about the American Indian histories and communities, the Navajo tribes. And Jon knew so much about the environment, and several towns along.
I highly recommend this tour and plan to repeat or join similar tour next year. I expect that they will continue to provide such great tour, and I have yet a lot things to see and learn about our promise land.
Did the National Parks 3 day winter tour and would rate it as one of the best trips my wife and I have ever done. Our tour guide Mike was informative well travelled and entertained the group with his extensive knowledge of the area.
The tour was full on over the three days to cover the long distances but planned so well we had more than enough time at the different areas.
The Grand Canyon, Antelope Canon, Monument Valley and Zion National Park were absolutely awe inspiring. Highly recommend the helicopter ride at the Grand Canyon.
I was on a 3 day National Parks tour at the end of March. Excellent experience and highly recommended !! Everything about this tour, from fantastic Tour Guide Jennie, who's world - wide travel experience was so inspiring, to the attention to details in trip planning - everything was foreseen - weather, meals, roads, entertainment. The way the trip was laid out and planned took best advantage of the time we had. From seen the sunrise over Grand Canyon, to taking photos in the Antelope Canyon, to seeing the magnificent Monument Valley, to simply driving and listening to Jenny's stories about the area and it's history - at every turn there was an unforgettable experience !!! Thank you Jennie and Tour Operator !! I can't wait to do it again !!!
Rachel Frampton...,words cannot describe how grateful we are for all that you did for our family. You were the best tour guide ever! We had the greatest trip out west and were able to accomplish so much on our 3 day tour with you! Your knowledge and expertise of all of these gorgeous National wonders was incredible and our opportunity to experience it all together was priceless! Thank you Rachel ~ from all of us~ for an unforgettable trip and memories that will last a lifetime ! We will highly recommend you and your company to anyone! You're the best! We miss you! XO
This tour was fabulous! Due to the winter season, our group was smaller than usual and we had an excellent tour guide so I was very happy with the whole thing! Our guide was very knowledgeable, funny, and ensured we were clued up on every site we visited. He was also very respectful of the native owners of the land on which we toured too and he shared so many interesting facts about the Navajo people. I would highly recommend this tour! It is the best way to get around and see all the highlights without having to worry about driving, directions, accommodation etc. I had a great time and have very fond memories of the trip! I will never forget the places we visited too. Just breathtaking.
This is an excellent tour of the famous national parks - south and east rims of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley (backdrop of lots of cowboy movies), lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Zion national park. The sights are fantastic! It was great to travel in a small group and due to the numbers, I was lucky to have a room to myself! Michael, our guide, was excellent - he was knowledgeable, professional and had a good sense of humour. He made everyone feel at ease and comfortable with each other. The hotels we stayed in were comfortable and clean. The rooms were big. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 days. I highly recommend this tour and company.
This is a tour that gives you a sample of the several landmark views of Death Valley (1-day trip) and Grand Canyon / Monument Valley / Zion (3-day trip). Since the parks are huge, you spend a lot of time going from one place to the other using their van. The van was comfortable and spacious. The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgeable about history and other aspects of the places we visited. This is a great trip to know the key landmarks and views from the park.
The tour was exceptional. We were amazed by the wonderful sights (as anyone would be I think) but Mike made the whole experience fantastic too - knowledgeable and generous at every stage. Thanks for making our first exposure to US natural wonders absolutely unforgettable.
I was traveling with my wife & two adult children. The short version is I would do this trip again & highly recommend it to others. I have listed the following details for further consideration: COMMUNICATION: when considering this tour with other companies, they separated themselves with how quick they answered any question & addressed any comments (we) had... GROUP: had the maximum of (14) tourist from all over the world. We were the only ones from the "states," not counting our tour guide, who did an excellent job getting everyone involved. This really added to this tour...watching adults see & play in the snow for the first time. Priceless. SITES: Rt 66 souvenir shops, Grand Canyon rim walk & look-outs, Monument Valley, Horse Shoe Curve, Glen Canyon Dam, Zion... AWESOME! Our tour guide did a great job in keeping everyone moving along, BUT not feeling rushed or hurried. The ANTELOPE CANYON is listed as "optional," I highly recommend that you do this. It is well worth the extra cash. TOUR GUIDE: Turned out to be Mike L., who we had on another day tour with this company about a year or two ago. As last time, Mike seems to sincerely like his job & his enthusiasm & desire to share information is contagious...often getting the whole group going.
Fantastic experience with 3day tour to Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Zion, etc. All accommodations were terrific, guide was very helpful and fun. Terrific way to see these wonders as a single person, couple or family.
We were 2 families totalling 10. Justin was our guide. We had a great trip that ran very smoothly. Justin was very nice, helpful, great with kids and provided the right amount of information for each of the tour sites. It was an amazing trip and we highly recommend it and our guide.
We had fantastic time. Our guide Jennie was perfect in all aspects. She arranged everything to suit all the passengers. Trip was a once in a lifetime. Grand Canyon , Monumental valley, Antelope canyon and Zion national park had breath taking views. Although climate was chilly places were less crowded and we took full advantage of the trip
Fantastic tour. Grand Canyon with helicopter flight, walk around the rim to trail head lookout, sunset views and after great Mexican feed and night in local motel sunrise views. Monument Valley - John Wayne country was spectacular. Antelope Canyon a photographic delight and Zion national park beautiful. Jenny was a knowledgable, friendly, organised guide. I would highly recommend this tour
My wife and I just returned from the three day Winter tour of National Parks. We would strongly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Mike was knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept the tour moving at a comfortable pace with well timed breaks and adequate time at the various parks to look around and take pictures. The tour is a bit more expensive than the large tour buses but this is because the tour is run in a small van. The use of a small van allows the tour group to move around faster and spend more time at each attraction which in my opinion more than makes up for the additional cost. We are actually hoping to take future tours with Bindlestiff having been "wowwed" by our first experience.
I just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic tour experience on your 3 day Parks tour, which departed Vegas on January 18. Itinerary was great, scenery spectacular and Mike was an amazing tour leader. He went above and beyond all of the time, and was particularly great with our teenage sons. Can't thank him enough. Thanks for a wonderful time, and we will be recommending this tour to everyone who is heading to the West Coast.
Mike, our tour guide, was relaxed, informative, friendly, completely engaged, and inclusive. We had time to enjoy the parks (even if snow and fog sometimes limited visibility). Mike was flexible and able to change the itinerary depending on weather, and relaxed stopping for photo opportunities. Accommodation was comfortable, lunch was healthy and there was a lot of options for dinners. Antelope Canyon is a must see. Would recommend this tour company to others, and you would be fortunate if Mike was your guide as his knowledge is extensive and his enthusiasm and positive attitude is infectious.
The itinerary was good, we had enough time exploring each park. Our guide Mike was very funny and kind. He accommodated most of our needs. The view was very spectacular and a lot of amazing pictures were taken. Antelope Canyon is a must visit! It's very unique, despite its narrow path and steep stairs.
As a family of 4 with 2 teenagers, we embarked on the 3 day accommodated Winter Tour to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon and Zion National Park in December. Mike, our tour Guide, was very capable in every way and kept us entertained and informed about all the wonderful things we saw. He was able to relate to each member of the family regarding their own interests. The accommodation was very comfortable and cozy on the very cold December nights and the picnic lunches were tasty and nutritious. We'd highly recommend this tour as we feel it was the highlight of our 3 week visit to the USA.
The trip is very organized and run professionally. Our guide, Mike, is very knowledge and funny at the same time. He accommodates and is willing to adjust the trip due to our needs. Also, the trip size is only 9 people so this makes me feel like a private trip sometime.
It is my first time to the USA and wow this tour and its sights blew my mind! Michael was an excellent guide- he was very flexible, nice, patient and he shared with us many interesting stories and would never fail to answer our questions. The sights in the tour were really awesome! Also, in such a short time, we were able to cover so many attractions with a nice amount of time in each place. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will be recommending it to our friends & family :)
This is by far the best choice for a tour of the national parks located in the southwest. The tour is catered for those who like a more personalised and enjoyable tour as it doesn't include all the normal nonsense that most tours include like factory outlets. It is more expensive but for a reason as it is by far the best experience. Our tour operator was amazing and allowed flexibility with time to explore the areas of the parks we visited.
