Great Tour - Skip the diamond back gulch
Thomas_D
, May 2021
The tour to the Ancient Ruins was very interesting and well worth seeing. Our tour guide was also very knowledgeable of area's geology which I found fascinating. We upgraded our tour to see Diamond Back gulch, but realized that was a mistake. I was under the impression it was something to see, but in reality it was just a crazy, bumpy, uncomfortable ride. I wish I would have skipped that part.

Our guide Brandon was exceptional. His knowledge of the site and personality was perfect. We loved all the petroglyphs and off roading was an adventure. Lots of photo ops too.

Our guide was great. The issue was not knowing that we would be expected to walk 3/4 of a mile to the Ancient Ruins. The ride was very bumpy and hard on the back. I would not recommend these tours for anyone who has back issues or gets motion sickness. My husband usually does good if he sits up front but even sitting up there he was so sick, it took two days for him to recuperate. They said this would be like a lazy Sunday drive. Definitely not my idea of a lazy Sunday drive.

Miguel Montoya was the best. super knowledgeable. Learned so much about nature and the surrounding area. He also played the flute at the Honaki Heritage Site. Awesome. We took the Diamondback upgrade. Glad we did. Loved it. Everything we had with us (including ourselves🤣) was covered in red dust. Super bumpy but worth it. Would go again.

If you are looking to have a great time, I suggest taking this tour! But be ready for a very bumpy, wild ride! We had a blast and loved getting up in the mountains to see views we never would have seen!

Viator needs to make time adjustments

Our family of 4 had a great time! The Pink Jeep Company was attentive to every detail. We had an amazing guide, Jeff V! Viator on the other hand dropped the ball big time!! We almost missed our tour! The listed time of check in and departure were off by 1/2 an hour!!! They were pulling out when we were arriving. To park you need a good 30 mins. Pink Jeep worked it out and the people we were riding with were very gracious! This could have turned out very differently. Viator needs to make the time adjustments!!
