The UTV tour was 100% worth it. We had a fantastic time! The scenery was beautiful, the experience was adventurous, and our tour guide, Jess, was great! As soon as we arrived, the staff greeted us and helped us get checked in right away. While we were signing waivers, they gave us water, sanitized goggles, and brand new head socks to help shield our faces from dust as we rode. (They also had new goggles to buy if you like). Just before we took off, Jess oriented us to the UTV and told us what to expect on the trip. We had the option to ride separate UTVs, but my husband and I wanted to ride together, so we did that and just swapped drivers at some point. I thought it was cool that they were so flexible. Jess drove a UTV ahead of us to guide the way, which was very helpful since I'm sure we could've easily lost track of all the path intersections throughout the desert. We got to drive through a little river, take pictures at various stops, go on a short hike to see some ruins, and finally watch the beautiful sunset over the rolling hills. Jess took a bunch of pictures for us, told us stories about the history of the place along the way, and kept us hydrated by offering more water during the trip. Everything was perfect! We would absolutely do this tour again, and we highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for something fun to do! Side Note: We got a nice splash driving through the shallow river, but the sun dried us all up by the end of the tour. You don't have to get wet if you don't want to, but it definitely made the trip a bit more interesting! Also, our clothes got dusty, but it was not a problem since our faces were protected the whole time. We did the 3 pm tour to allow us to see the sunset in the desert!
Fun time for all
