Our tour with Mike was so much more than we expected. He was so informative, personable, knowledgeable, and, the 4 of us from CA couldn't have been happier. We saw so many Utah wonders and learned so much about Canyonland. We highly recommend Mike and his company for a adventure beyond words

We looked at the NPS option, but could not rely on the fact that we could not book far enough in advance to guarantee a tour, so opted for Deep Desert Expeds. We were not disappointed. We met on time at... More

They were an older group, but Mary was incredible about leading them and encouraging them through some of the obstacles. She kept reassuring them and showed them proper techniques to get... More

Deep Desert was able to secure us some last-minute passes for the hike the very next day. Our guide was Mary. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area. Her background is in geology and...

There were 8 of us on this tour, including Mary, our guide. She was a great guide because she was knowledgable, lighthearted, and easy going. She was at ready when a helping hand was needed. We enjoyed the company of others on this trip.

Charlie met us at the visitor center and we spent about 3 1/2 hours exploring. He was very... More

We had a very special experience hiking through the Fiery Furnace. Our guide Mary was knowledgeable, responsible and lots of fun too. It is a very special place with a fragile ecosystem and Mary impressed on us it's uniqueness. I will always remember it's beauty and tranquillity and my own personal satisfaction in completing this tricky hike. Definitely an adventure... More
