It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™
WHAT TO EXPECT:
This tour features 2 of Utah’s most magnificent parks, both Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. The highlight of each park is their incredible geological formations. In Zion it’s the massive near vertical rock walls that line the canyon carved by the Virgin River. For Bryce, it’s gazing down from the rim of the Amphitheater and trying to absorb the presence of thousands of hoodoo formations.
Your tour includes both parks and the 1.5 hour drive using Highway 89 that connects them. The tours begin as you approach either Zion or Bryce Canyon, you can begin at either, or even join the route along the way if you are arriving from Grand Canyon North Rim.
The commentary highlights all of the best location of viewpoints and has information on many of the popular hiking trails you may choose to explore. And the region has a rich collection of stories of characters who framed the history, the native Americans who came before them as well as providing background of the amazing natural wonders.
Shuttle buses operate in the busiest sections of these parks. You can take this tour with you and continue listening if shuttle bussing is mandatory during your visit.
