Hop into a Toyota Land Cruiser with your expert guide and head north from Moab to the backcountry entrance of Arches National Park and avoid the crowds.

Our first stop is to see dinosaur footprints. For millions of years this area was teeming with dinosaurs.

We pass Balanced Rock, one of the most iconic features of the Park, standing a staggering 128 feet. Landscape look familiar? Indiana Jones, and Thelma and Louise have scenes shot here.

The 4X4 trail into the backcounty climbs a short but steep rock wall passing sandstone fins, towering pinnacles and tall spires known as the Marching Men. We stop at Tower Arch for an optional hike.

As you travel along the track, hear informative commentary about the geology, wildlife and history of the park.

We make another stop at Eye of the Whale for an optional hike to a seldom visited slick rock playground named Herdina Park.

After exploring the backcountry we exit past the three gossips and Park Avenue before your guide returns you to Moab.

We had an excellent time with Ric as our guide as we cruised all over Arches in the Land Cruiser 4 x 4. Even though we weren't able to go to Tower Arch we saw and experienced many other places and the day went by so quickly. Ric was a great guide and host and he was lots of fun as we hiked and tried not to slip and fall on the icy and snowy hills. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Arches in a new way. Ric also gave us great tips on where to spend the rest of your time in and around Moab which was very helpful as this was our first time in the area.

Everything that I saw and experienced on this day was absolutely amazing. The route we took was packed with sites and sights that where overwhelmingly grand and beautiful.

Great tour! Jesse was a personable, knowledgeable and considerate guide. He even provided water and snacks! The off-roading was like nothing I'd ever done before - different, exciting and fun. We saw a couple of the park's well-known highlights and then several more sites that ordinary visitors who drive through in their cars never get to see. I got to put my foot in a dinosaur track (explanation for one of my photos.) I'd absolutely recommend the tour, and Jesse as a guide, to a friend.

Our guide Ric is a native of Moab and is very knowledgeable of Arches Nat Pk. He drove us around to numerous sights w/i the park where we got some great shots. He then took us on a back trail that wound thru the desert and then a road up into the mountains. He took us on a trail via the 4x4 that I would have never imaged one could drive over - high boulders, low sandpits, you name and we drove over it. It was a half-day trip and I highly recommend it the next time you find yourself in the high desert of Moab and ask for Ric.

This was one of my favorite excursions the entire time we were in Utah. What a fun way to see Arches and avoid crowds. Our guide was fun/funny, knowledgeable and took us EVERYWHERE. Loved the dinosaur tracks, close ups of arches and more.. You are on back dirt roads, so the 4x4 is real and expect a lot of bumps. That was the fun part for us, but it might not be for everyone. Loved every minute!

Arches tour was great. Adam was very knowledgeable and the tour covered parts of arches that most don’t see. I highly recommend it.

Ric, our guide, was great and made the trip fun. He took us off roading to parts of the Park only accessible this way. Ric was responsible for our care so we wouldn't fall or trip. Well worth it.

Solid excursion! A ton of fun! My wife, cannot hike any more. She has an issue which prevents her from getting out into the better portions of Arches. This was the main reason we booked this tour. And it was well worth it.They picked us up at the hotel and by the looks of the vehicle, we knew they meant business. It was geared up for a month in the outback in case there was an issue. The start out by going in a back country entrance to Arches. No lines. No waiting.You get to see dinosaur tracks, back country, arches that nobody else will probably see, and the main arches in the park. You go in and out a few times, and get to really see some very cool things!Well worth the money. We stopped a few times and got out to take pictures. We were very happy and satisfied that we made this investment in our vacation.
