| The first question I usually get
asked is, 'Why do I need a guide at all?'
You could come to an airport, rent
a car and go, perhaps saving yourself a few dollars.
Some could do it that way, but
even for an experienced traveler it takes days, if not weeks, to plan such a trip
By contrast, with the right person
guiding you, you will see some places which millions of people would like to
visit, but they donít know how to get there or even know that they exist.
You have five days, three National
Parks, and endless desert lying between you and your destination.
If you get lost, your best choice
may be spending the night in the desert. At worst, you might have to walk the
desert for a couple of daysÖ through the mountains.
Iím not trying to scare you.
Thatís how it really is!
And that's not the only advantage
to having a guide.
Just a few of the things your
guide will clarify:
-††† What you see
-††† Where you are
-††† What kind of rock is
-††† Is it volcanic or sedimentary
-††† How to behave in case of
seeing wild animals
-†† What kind of people live in
the area, among them Native Americans
-†† Why the name of the place is Zion
-†† Why some of the majestic rocks
are named after Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
-†† Etc, etc.
There will be enough talking and
explaining for the entire duration of the trip.
In addition to sightseeing, I can
arrange horseback riding, rafting, or even a helicopter flight over the Canyon.
For these activities you will pay directly to the companies or individuals
providing these services.
