What Guests Are Saying...

This tour was a nice mix of picture opportunities, organized hikes, and personal exploration time. We covered a lot of territory but never really felt rushed. Because we were in such a small group, there was a lot of personalized attention which definitely made the difference. We were definitely glad that we did the trip.

This was a very well organized program. Our Expedition Leader was definitely the key to our trip. He was knowledgeable, personable, and engaging. He was willing to accommodate us every step of the way. He engaged each person and made everyone feel like they were important. Every hike that he led or participated in was worthwhile. We could not imagine a better person to lead our tour.

Our Expedition Leader’s knowledge and dedication to detail enhanced the experience. His wisdom and knowledge of geography, flora, fauna, and locations made this trip nearly ideal. Equally impressive were the dealings with Orbridge throughout the build-up to the trip and the excellent material provided to assist with our own personal planning and enjoyment.

The highlights were the hoodoos at Bryce Canyon, the vast beauty and serenity of Monument Valley, and the extraordinary grandeur of the bridges at the National Bridges National Monument.

–Ben F., Ashburn, VA

This trip was outstanding in all ways. The scenery was amazing, food was really good, driver and guides were personable, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. They worked hard to make sure we were well taken care of.

This is our second Orbridge trip. Both were educational, well organized and a good luxury value. We will definitely return and recommend.

–Georgia & Tom W., Alexander City, AL

This trip seemed like a gift to us at our ages — we had not visited many of these wonderful parks and would not likely drive to all of them on our own. Very well organized! Excellent guides! Great management!

–Patty & Tom P., La Jolla, CA

We really enjoyed ourselves. It exceeded our expectations. We didn’t have to worry about anything besides having a good time.

–Susan K., Lakeland, MI

Fabulous destinations and sights. Tour elements came together seamlessly. Our Expedition Leader was outstanding— a wealth of knowledge about the geography, geology, and history of the area. Small group enhanced the personal experience.

–Doug B., San Francisco, CA

This was an excellent trip. We had lots of fun and made some great memories as well as met some wonderful people.
This is a great program that can encompass a wide range of personal interests (the sights, the local culture, the history, and lots of geological & biological information). Excellent tour guides, driver, and organization. Everything flowed seamlessly and was well-prepared.

–Faith P., Lottie, LA

I am so sad this trip is over—there are so many entries on my bucket list that I can now check off. Absolutely everything was wonderful. Probably the best trip I've ever taken—everything was just perfect. The Expedition Leader was so knowledgeable.

–Marilyn H., San Antonio, TX

It was a great trip. The National Parks in the Southwest are spectacular. The scenery is indescribable. So glad that we were able to join the group. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to get a taste of the Southwest and the beautiful National Parks.

–Kathy D., Cincinnati, OH

It was really a trip of a lifetime. Accommodations were outstanding. Extremely well planned and executed.

–Marilyn M., Delaware, OH

It was a great trip. It was well thought out. Our Expedition Leader brought a lot of color, information and humor to the trip. The overall beauty of the sites we saw were incredible.

–Pat & Sondra M., Ellicott City, MD

Best trip ever. Every new site was a highlight. Nothing but amazing from one day to the next. Great accommodations, food, information and fun!

–Marguerite N., Milford, NJ

We wanted to see this part of the country but we didn't want to drive and plan it, but this tour provided so much more. We really felt like we experienced the Southwest Parks and learned so much about the Navajo culture and the geology and natural beauty—and why it is the way it is. It was fun and highly educational/interesting.

–Ken & Nancy C., Marshall, IL

We've been on lots of tours and never had such competent, genuine and fun guides. Very impressed with the itinerary and educational emphasis. Will definitely watch for more programs from Orbridge.

–Gary & Ginny H., Cherry Valley, IL

This was the best bus tour we have yet been on! Very pleased with the overall experience.
