Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown , 215 W S Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA

At 9:49 AM meet outside the main lobby doors of Radisson Downtown hotel (215 W South Temple, Salt Lake City) and watch for the CITY SIGHTS tour bus to arrive curbside on the street. Parking is available for a small fee across the street.

This activity will end right where it started.
After pickup from downtown hotels, your Salt Lake City sightseeing tour starts with a visit to the State Capitol Building, followed by a stop at Old Deseret Village, aka Pioneer Village, and a chance to see part of the historical Mormon Trail.

Continue to Temple Square, where you can explore the gardens and enjoy a live recital in the Salt Lake Tabernacle, also known as the Mormon Tabernacle, famous for its organ—one of the largest in the world with 11,623 pipes—and for being the home of the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Then a stunning and gorgeous cathedral built in 1901 and the mother church for Roman Catholics in Utah. Tour inside and picture taking. Next, head to the Lion House, the old pioneer home of Brigham Young, Utah’s first governor, the founder of Salt Lake City and a former leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This 1856 building is now a restaurant.

Pass by more Salt Lake City sights like Fort Douglas, the University of Utah, the Pony Express Monument, some of the city’s oldest mansions and churches, and sites from the 2002 Winter Olympics such as Olympic Legacy Plaza, Olympic Village, the Cauldron and Olympic Stadium. Your tour then ends with hotel drop-off downtown.

A must tour to take

Ann was a fantastic tour guide. SLC has a great Light rail system. Union Pacific Station was used as a model for Disney train station. Spent 20 minutes at Heritage Park Sand stone was the building material on most of the historic mansions. It’s 42 steps up to the Cathedral Madelene church. Beautiful! Toured the Capitol building. Organ recital at the Tabernacle Square.

It was a nice bus tour of the city. My bus guide was very knowledgeable not only of the city, but also the state as well. The bus guide was so nice and awesome. It was well worth the price. If you get a chance to visit Salt Lake City, make sure to book a guide bus tour. You’ll not be disappointed!!!

Great tour of Salt Lake Highlights
Loren_C
, May 2022
Michael did a great job showing us the highlights of SLC. Being born there and lived his entire life there gave him a breadth of knowledge that was a real treat. He showed us so many places we want to come back and visit that we’re going to schedule another trip back to SLC. He had a problem with the sound system on the bus that was annoying. He verified that none of the guests had a tight timeline, and then offered to exchange buses, which he then did. Thank you

Initially uncertain about the tour, it ended up being a wonderful experience. Our tour guide Anne was so great, providing many details and interesting facts about places, historic buildings and people along the route. This tour ended with a brief visit to the Utah Capitol and organ music at Temple Square at noon. The flowers are all blooming downtown right now. I highly recommend this tour as a great overview of the city and its treasures.

Margaret_M
, May 2022
Our guide, Wynn Hall, was superb. If we had more time, we would do other tours with him. He was extremely informative, easy to understand and sprinkled his presentation with humor - most of it self deprecating. His extensive knowledge of the history, the sites and the impetus for Utah’s enviable growth and prosperity was boundless. Age might prevent me from returning to Utah, but if I did I’d plan a tour through your company as long as Wynn was the guide!
