Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon

We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travelers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travelers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whatever we can.

We are proud supporters of the American Hiking Society, which champions conservation issues in the United States and represents millions of hikers committed to preserving America’s vast network of hiking trails and their surrounding ecosystems.

Whenever possible, we use local accommodation and activity providers. We also shop locally for groceries, eat in small family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit.

It is also important that we help to protect the fragile desert environment. The desert’s natural way to avoid sand erosion is by creating cryptobiotic soil which creates a living crust on the desert floor. This special soil helps the desert to protect itself from wind and rain erosion and promotes plant growth. All our tour leaders encourage our travelers to stick to the path to avoid damaging this special soil which can be hard to see.

Reviews of Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


I loved walking the canyon river in Zion National Park but my most memorable thing was a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon. It was excellent! I'd never been in a helicopter and this flight has convinced me that this is a fantastic way to get close to big places. It was an extra on the tour but definitely worth it.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


This vacation is focused on a very beautiful environment. The scenery is splendid.
Be in healthy physical condition so you can go out and enjoy it.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The tour company was focused on all of the above. They encouraged us to go out into the community. As far as environmental impact and conservation went, the care of the canyons is everywhere and they encouraged us to take notice.


4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent. Good tour. Well planned and organised. Excellent itinerary with a good
balance between travel time and time at the location. Great guide, knowledgeable. Tour group was relaxed enough for people to go on their own or stay in small groups. It was great from start to end.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Lots of lovely places and "interesting" weather - walking down the Grand Canyon at dawn in the rain, the lightning acting as a backdrop to the Navajo evening in Monument Valley, almost getting up to Angel's Landing at Zion NP.... lots of lovely memories and great photos.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Take an open mind, be prepared for small changes to your itinerary and keep in touch with your guide.
Be sociable.
Be ready for any weather.
Take the optional trips.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, tipping presumably supported local people/industries, and lots of recycling opportunities everywhere.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent, great bunch of fellow travelers (tour was full at 13).
Our tour guide, Dan, was great and made the vacation work really. He was always available to us and coped well with our different needs/wants and the unpredictable weather.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


First view of Bryce Canyon; trekking down to Cedar Ridge in the Grand Canyon.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Have good hiking boots and take your walking poles.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


These tours are not cheap and I hope a considerable amount of what we pay goes to the local businesses that are used e.g hotels, local tour guides. These tours tend to attract people who appreciate the need for conservation and therefore try to reduce their environmental impact e.g obeying national park rules, not leaving any litter.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Great itinerary enhanced by a very experienced tour leader who used his knowledge to maximise our opportunities e.g. visit to Horseshoe Bend Overview. Had great picnics which greatly reduced extra expenditure. Hotels/lodges very good quality. Shame about the bus: very cramped and uncomfortable especially on long journeys (last day 7 hours).

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Hiking through Bryce Canyon with snow capping the rocks. One group member said as we hiked down amongst the structures "We need to invent new superlatives". It was stunning.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


While there are disadvantages in traveling through the Canyons in winter - cold, ice on paths, weather the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages - few people, sight of snow capped canyons, and if the weather is clear the views are superb.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


As much as it can in the USA - recommend travelers bring own keep-cup as even accommodation uses disposable cups and glasses. Tour uses local Navajo tour in Monument Valley which was wonderful.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Fantastic, recommended. Great tour guide from this tour operator.
