Your tour begins in the middle of Moab where you’ll meet your guide, and board the comfortable 4WD vehicle for the 5-mile (8-km) drive to the park. Once inside Arches National Park, your off-roading adventure begins when you leave the road by Doc Williams Point.

More than 2,000 giant sandstone arches are scattered throughout the park, which is the largest collection of naturally occurring arches found anywhere in the world. You’ll also find pinnacles, fins, and rocks along this epic landscape of rich red earth sculpted by time.

If some of this landscape looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it in the movies. Popular films like Thelma and Louise were shot in portions of the park, as were scenes for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

If you choose the evening tour, there’s a chance you could see a fiery sunset illuminate the red rocks. Once the sun is below the horizon, stars sparkle in one of the darkest skies in the country.

Towards the end of the tour, you’ll leave the park via an old cowboy trail. It’s here where you’ll stop to see fossilized dinosaur tracks stamped into the earth.

Finally, after several hours of backcountry exploring in the southern Utah terrain, your tour finishes in the center of Moab from the same spot where it began.

A really fun ride with Levi
ratnikmother
, Jun 2022
We had already seen the sights at Arches the day before, so we asked Levi, our guide, to take us off roading for all of our time. It was a fantastic ride that satisfied the adventure craving for all of us, even the hard to please, hyper critical fourteen year old. We saw hidden arches, lizards, medicinal plants and climbed lots of rocks with the vehicle. Levi was great—always positive, a safe driver and really into off roading with teens

Our tour guide Rick was one of the best guides we have ever had on any trip we’ve taken. He was so kind and helped my mom out whenever she needed it. He helped take pics when we wanted a pic of us taken together. He is so knowledgeable about the area and just really made our time in arches a wonderful experience!

They called and said there was only the 2 of us, so couldn't go out unless there was 3. I couldn't reschedule do to other bookings. I said lets wait and see if someone else books. No one did.They said I could pay for the 3rd ticket. Ya, no. The way I see it, they didn't gain a ticket they list 2. It was our anniversary. We just took our sweet time coming to moab thru capitol creek.

Our tour of Arches National Park was amazing! Bronson was the best guide! He was very knowledgeable about the Park and the arches themselves. Plus he had a great personality! Damon, a new employee, was along to observe. He was a lot of fun as well. They hiked up to the arches with us, took pics for us, and made sure we stayed hydrated, as the temperature was in the 90’s with winds gusting 40+ mph.

Our family group really enjoyed our 4x4 tour with Dan. He is very knowledgeable about the history, paleontology, and geology of Arches. We first travelled through the back country and saw dinosaur footprints in the mud! And hiked to several arches. Then, we went to the front country to visit several more arches, learning all about it on the way. Dan gave us cold water and snacks, and kept the AC on for my daughter, who is sensitive to the heat. Thank you, Dan, for an awesome tour! :)

All the arches doesn’t disappoint. This tour took us off the tourist path and up close. Only one other couple in the land cruiser made our experience personal. The roads were bumpy and we loved every moment of them. Memorable and beautiful experience .

This was the best decision we could have made and was 100% worth every penny. Our tour guide was so patient, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. We saw dinosaur tracks, hidden areas of the back country, and so many little plants and animals. If youre on the fence, just do it. And tip your tour guides folks!
