    • First of all I want to say thank you to the wonderful guide James Li. 2 years ago I have already used the services of your company, the guides were quite good (there were 3 of them), but James was the best. He is a super organized, responsible and smart person. He knows the tour program very good, it was really interesting to listening him. The group was amazing this is respect of our guide, because he could organised everybody in group.Hope next time to meet with James in tour again. The program of tour was really wide, we have visited a lot of Canyons and National parks. As for me I take away Moab from the program, because the other places are very good and more attractive (this is my vision).
