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. 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 where you can enjoy lunch (own expense).

After lunch, 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.

The marble capital building
JoseA_F
, Oct 2021
The Capital Building interiors were very ornate and beautiful, however, the tour bus driver left us behind with others after the temple stop. Also, the your only lasted 2 1/2 hours while the booking said it was 4 hrs. Very dissatisfied!!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Please read the description of the tour. It clearly states that the tour is in fact a 2 1/2 hour tour. Temple stop is the last stop, so you just had to walk one block back to your hotel. The entire tour group waited for 10 minutes after the appointed time to return.

A Don't Miss Experience

, Oct 2021
The tour includes nearly everything I wanted to see around town and more. What really made it memorable was the guide himself - a great storyteller - if you have kids they'll learn a lot. Plus it took less time than you would think to cover that much ground.
