Wonderful Experience
Charlotte (source: TripAdvisor)

I did 2 experiences with Zion Guide Hub – full day hiking + full day hiking/canyoneering. Hector was my guide for both days. He was great – conversation, knowledge of area, & expertise with hiking and canyoneering. He also took great photos of me at different viewpoints and while canyoneering. Hector was also great at helping to navigate difficult areas – there were several times where I asked him where to put my feet to climb up rocks. For one of the excursions, I did Angel’s Landing hike. After that hike, since I was worn out from Angel’s Landing, he drive me to a couple of areas outside of the park with great views. For the other excursion, we hiked Water Canyon and did 5 different rappels. Both days offered beautiful views.

Best guide at Zion

Did two different guided excursions with Sunny. Full-day hike and half-day canyoneering. Very knowledgeable, made us feel safe, and had an amazing time. This was our first time to the park. Definitely recommend Sunny if you want an unforgettable experience.
Daniel Sheldon

Josh was a phenomenal guide. We hired him to show us around the park for a day and a half and he took us on a few unconventional/off the beaten path hikes that were an awesome experience. Would fully recommend to anyone looking for an experience outside of the obvious at Zion.
