from Zion National Park Day Tour
“The sanctuary” – that’s what immediately came to the minds of Mormon settlers when discovering this paradisiac place in the mid-1800s, aptly naming it “Zion”. This truly unparalleled accumulation of steep sandstone cliffs, serene meadows, canyon narrows, weeping rocks, and waterfalls now is yours to explore and happens to be only a short road trip away from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip. Even the drive to this refuge for flora, fauna and people alike is nothing short of spectacular. Crossing the Mojave desert northward we journey right through Nevada’s turbulent history – past Native lands, old mining towns and massive mountain ranges loaded with gemstones, gold, and silver.

Steadily gaining elevation we approach the vast Colorado Plateau. Like a sentinel of stone, the Virgin River Gorge seems to guard the entranceway to Utah’s most stunning scenery. This is the region Hollywood chose to film its most famous western movies as well as countless car commercials. The best is yet to come as we enter the national park through a maze of mesas and slot canyons, winding our way down to the historic Mount Carmel Tunnel, an engineering feat of the 1920s to create the “Grand Circle” connecting Zion with Bryce and the Grand Canyon. Small windows in the tunnel wall already give us glimpses of the monumental grandeur that awaits us, but only on the other side Zion Canyon fully presents itself with all its natural beauty.

After an invigorating lunch right in the heart of this magnificent valley, we are ready to follow in the footsteps of its early inhabitants and explore the many trails, viewpoints and scenic sights surrounding us. From hiking up to emerald-colored pools, letting 2000-year-old spring water sprinkle upon us to playing on the Virgin River beaches – Zion National Park is yours to discover!

In mid-May of 2020, Jeff Slade, the owner of DETOURS put together a private tour of southwest AZ for me and my husband. This was not an east considering the fact that AZ was still in lockdown mode due to CORONA. Fortunately, on May 15, just 4 days prior to our scheduled arrival into Phoenix, AZ Governor Doug Ducey, lifted the shelter-in-place. order. That said, it would likely take a couple of weeks for merchants, restaurants, hotels, and state parks to re-open, In spite of the many challenge, Jeff put together an historical and beautiful tour, complemented by Jeff's vast knowledge of the history of the southwest, We highly recommend DETOURS for your next trip!

I have run multiple trips for family friends in both Europe and the United States. In all this time, I am amazed at the service, expertise and helpfulness in putting our tour of the American Southwest Parks including the Grand Canyon. They delivered on every request for our group of well traveled New Yorkers. Kyle and Jeff even provide their personal cell numbers. What is even more amazing is the compassion the owner, Jeff Slade has shown when we sadly had to cancel our late September, 2020 trip. He was well aware of the pain that our New York City Metro area is experiencing due to Corvid 19 Virus. At the time of the cancellation, Jeff has given us a FULL REFUND with no questions asked, only concern for our safety. I give Detours American West my highest recommendation and once things get back to normal, we will be rebooking our trip.

"Wonderful Tour of the Navajo Trail and the Dolly Steamboat Ride"

Our tour started out by picking up at our hotel. Montana was our driver and he was a hoot. We really enjoyed having him as our tour guide. As mention above, we were picked up at our hotel on time and we were grateful that we didn't have to drive during rush hour in Phoenix. Anyway, we went to two other hotels to pick-up guests and then we were on our way. Montana gave us a great overview of what we were seeing. I loved the fact that our tour bus was new and only held 12 passengers. The tour was small enough that we all got to know each other and interact. Our first stop was at a place where a lot of westerns had been shot. In fact, the chapel was called the Elvis Chapel because in the movie Charro, that was where he was married. In fact, weddings are still held there. After driving in the desert we stopped at a very rustic restaurant and had a great meal. After that we headed out to meet up with the Dolly Steamboat for our 1.5 hour boat ride. That too was great and very relaxing. After the boat ride we headed back to Phoenix but stopped at an old ghost town. I especially liked the fact that Montana gave us ample time to visit each location along the tour. If you want to enjoy a unique experience, be sure and take the Navajo Trail and Dolly Steamboat Tour. You won't regret it. Also, as mentioned above, Montana was a great tour guide and I really enjoyed his commentary.

My son and I took a day trip to the Grand Canyon. I had been there but my son had not. It was a great trip. Our tour guide was amazing, I don’t remember his name, he was the old guy in the canyon. He was so knowledgeable and interesting. The bus was very comfortable. I would definitely not hesitate to book with DETOURS!
