Kayla, our tour guide on two of the three included tours, was amazing! Friendly, informative, and fun! The tours were great, and the hotel was good.

Our one complaint is that our hotel was switched from Desert Gardens to Sails in the Desert, and no one from Viator notified us of the change.

Really interesting sights and a bit off the beaten track the visit of Kings Canyon and less touristy and was my highlight... great views and unseen scenery.

The tours are really well run, on time, the guides are helpful and cheerful, and the company is both generous and thoughtful wine and bites is really generous, cold towels after a walk in the heat, etc..

All in all, a beautiful and effortless way to visit the area with a touch of luxury!
