ATV & Jeep Adventure Tours: Meet Our Tour Guides
Adventure Tour Senior Guide, Rob is originally from Seattle, Washington. Hanging up his raincoat, he came to Southern Utah to retire from UPS and care for his mother. Not to mention the 360 days of sunshine and fun! He revel’s in sharing an excellent level of service and focus, in addition to his adventuresome track record. Besides guiding in the sand dunes, Rob spend’s his time studying the universe, golfing, hiking and SIM racing. He also loves to occasionally dine-in at Cappeletti’s, a local 4 star Italian restaurant. After working with AJAT for almost 4 years now, he wants every one of his guests to leave with a lifetime memory of visiting southern Utah.
While John was trekking across the United States from Connecticut, he stumbled upon the ambiance and more relaxed pace of life we harbor here in Southern Utah. Previous to joining our crew as Guide and Mechanic, he worked as a service technician for a company in Connecticut and a natural gas company in Colorado. John’s favorite part about Sand Mountain is the open trail, especially in the spring and fall. Outside of making sure our machines are up to par, he enjoys tending to his family’s vegetable garden, day-tripping on his motorcycle and travelling the beautiful USA. John owns his own off-road machines as well and loves to ride in the wilderness and go rock crawling. Too him, the best part about touring with ATV & Jeep is that our guests get to see areas they wouldn’t see normally on a hike.
Cary was raised in Utah’s capital Salt Lake City. After serving in and retiring from the United States of America Air Force, he came to live in a land of unlimited adventures. Also a place where family and friends love to come visit and play. Cary explains the best thing about being a part of the AJAT family is the diverse and unique people that adventure with him. He too owns a few Can Am ATV’s and a Side-by-side that allow him to further explore Southern Utah. Even when Cary isn’t out guiding, you bet he’s discovering new trails on Sand Mountain. To him, the perfect outdoor adventure time falls between the equinox’s. Cary has been an adventure Tour Guide for over 2 years now and believes that our excursions are a “Once in a lifetime experience!”
We are beyond lucky to have Tammy providing wonderful memories for our guests alongside her husband, Cary. Tammy grew up in Fredonia Arizona. Now she continues raising her family in Southern Utah. She loves showing off our beautifully unique surroundings. Particularly with new people from all around the world. Tammy loves Saint George because of its colors and wonderful year round weather. Our adventure tours, from her standpoint, are the best and safest way to get to know Sand Mountain. In addition, Tammy’s favorite part of Sand mountain just so happens to be going to the Flintstone house. A special spot that mother nature created, where our Full-day Adventures often stop for lunch.
David grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. He and his family decided to move north after his retirement from law enforcement. David has been riding ATV’s since the age of ten years old. Since then he has set his heart on adventuring alongside the temperate fall weather here. David’s other interests besides equipping our guests with unforgettable moments, are hiking and mountain biking. He also does a phenomenal job guiding our Off-road Van Excursions. Spotlighting ancient history, dinosaur tracks and pioneer heritage. Besides the fact that “we get paid to play,” Dave’s favorite part of sand mountain are the Navajo sandstone rock formations.
Bill and his family traveled south from Northern Utah to bask in his retirement from owning his own company and to take part in the adventuresome lifestyle here in Southern Utah. In his own side-by-side machine Bill adores taking his grandchildren out the most. Since Bill has been with AJAT, he has come to savor meeting new people. He believes that we are an awesome tour company because we are where safety and fun meet. It cannot get any better than that. Bill is very fond of riding the big sand dunes on Sand Mountain in the Fall.
Alan fell in love with Southern Utah after calling Utah County home for most of his life. He loves gliding in the sand with our guests. Before catching up on sunshine, he finished his career as a coal miner. What brought him to southern Utah was the snow, or lack of it! He is fascinated by the Iron Oxide in the sand. Which is responsible for it’s deep orange and red hues. Alan likes living only 2 short hours from anything you can imagine doing outdoors. Other than guiding for ATV and Jeep, he enjoys smoking meat in his charcoal smoker. He is quite the grill master! The Sand Highway on Sand Mountain captures his love to have a blast exploring the desert. If you want to see “mother nature in her raw,” adventure with Alan.
Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Dave came to Southern Utah for “the life.” Dave loves being a part of ATV & Jeep Adventure Tours, connecting with new people and riding through our awesome scenery. His favorite part of Sand Mountain ties between Jurassic park, wind- carved animal shaped sandstone boulders and Owl’s Nest. Where if you’re lucky, you will see a mother owl nesting. On the side, he dabbles in fishing, rock crawling and loves to travel the world. Dave shares that we provide safe and fun adventures while producing only the grandest memories.
