I’m not one for superlatives but this tour was spectacular. I’ve been on ATV tours in the past but this 4-hour sunset tour was on a level all its own. Our guide, Rob Olsen, was fantastic: informative, fun, good humored, and patient. The machines were impeccably maintained and perfectly matched to my wife and myself (wife is 5’4″, I’m 6’5″. 300lbs). My Can Am 650 really pulled me effortlessly. Sand Hollow State Park has to be one of the most impressive playgrounds for ATVs and rock crawlers in the US. So many terrain changes: from hard sand and gravel to dense sandstone and beautiful red sand dunes. There are so many beautiful photo ops as Rob was more than willing to take all our group shots. Most impressive was the top of a cliff near the west rim overlooking St. George and Hurricane from over 1000′. Just gorgeous. Do not hesitate to book with this wonderful company. It’s an experience never to be forgotten.
The Beginning: I wanted to plan a surprise mini vacation for my family. I have two boys (19 &16) and hubby. And planning a trip within the time frame that I had been challenged with was not going to be easy. I had already made up my mind that I wanted to take them somewhere they hadn’t been before….so Utah it was going to be. From the onset, I wanted to do something with them that they hadn’t done before. In previous vacations, the boys were too young to drive any vehicle of any sort (other than the cars in Autopia @ Disney). But now that they are teens, it’s a bit more challenging to find an activity that would keep the entertained. After doing some research, I came across ATV and Jeep Adventure Tours. I read the previous reviews and was skeptical that a company could have such high praises. Nonetheless I began my inquiry with an on-line chat. The person on the other end of that chat was Sindy. She was very patient in answering my questions during that chat and never hurried me to end it. But after thinking about the adventure more, I had a few more questions so I submitted an email. The email was responded to within less than 24 hours. Sindy’s email was brief asking that I call her so that I could get my questions answered – she was very patient, very thorough and very helpful in trying to accommodate my scheduling constraints. I booked a 2 hr tour.
The Tour: We arrived early just as instructed and we were greeted by our guide Kerry. He was so patient and knowledgeable. He gave instructions patiently on how to use the machines. He showed great patience as well when someone had problems dealing with going up sand dunes for the first time. He made this tour interesting, fun, challenging, educational and just an incredible memory for my family! We each had a quad – and even though neither boy had driven one before, Kerry made them “almost” experts by the end of the tour.
Thank you AJAT for a wonderful WONDERFUL time and all around EXCEPTIONAL customer service! Hope to be back for the all day excursion next time!
Professional in every way and TONS OF FUN! My wife and I have done tours all over the world. We know a good tour from a bad tour. This tour was awesome. Everything from the scheduling to the actual tour itself was excellent. They communicated information well. They adapted the tour to fit our groups needs. The guides were great. The tour started on time and we got a full 5 hours! They thought of everything. I could go on and on about it. Even the little things like having a facemask/buff to keep the sand out of your mouth and nose. Lots of variation in the tour and different sights to see. We were a bit nervous about it being a slow tour with drivers in our group getting bored. (Most of us are experienced riders.) But the moment the tour guide figured out or ability and level of experience he immediately adapted the tour to fit our needs and sped up the pace. We ended within 3 minutes of the time we were supposed to. They didn’t waste time rambling on and on about stuff we didn’t care about. It was awesome in every way. I know lots of people come from all over the world and country to take this tour and probably not a lot of locals do it. But seriously if you are a local, go do this tour. It’s awesome!
Took my wife and kids to Utah for a family vacation. My wife found this tour company online and we were blown away by the reviews. We have 5 kids ranging from 8-23. Both Rob and Tammy were our guides and our 12 year old daughter was able to ride an ATV with Tammy on the back guiding and helping her. She was so nice and patient with our daughter and made sure she had fun. Also, our oldest has special needs and was able to ride his own ATV! Rob was extremely patient and understanding and made sure our son was in good hands. Overall, we have never experienced such a great time and being able to give our kids this experience is something they will never forget. Both Rob and Tammy made sure that safety was first and covered all the details so we were comfortable and safe. They made sure that we stopped and took breaks and also taught us some fun facts and lessons about animal life and history of the area. Also, the terrain and environment was so beautiful. Thanks again ATV Jeep Adventure Tours! We will be back for sure!
Klemp family had an amazing time touring with Ken and Rob this past week. We did a half day tour from 8 AM – Noon. Both Rob and Ken greeted all of us as soon as we pulled up and exited the vehicle. All ATV’s were lined up and ready to go. Once we got fitted for gloves, helmets, and safety glasses both the guides went over the two types of ATV’s they had. They also demonstrated the safety of using the ATV’s in the desert. As we approached each obstacle in the desert, they would remind us the proper way to go up sand dunes, rocks, and follow the person’s tracks in front of you. We really enjoyed all the look out points they took us too and all the information they provided about being in the desert as far as animals, different plants, etc…. we will definitely recommend Rob and Ken to all of our friends who travel to UTAH!!!!
Husband and I booked the full day tour while in Utah on vacation. Rob and Jo were our guides for the day. They went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and experienced as much as we could during our tour. We drove well over 20 miles through the desert, rock formations and fields. Driving the 900 Rzr through the sand bowls was by far my favorite. Which was a brand new machine, that we took on its first tour. They served us a box sandwich lunch and snacks and water throughout the whole ride. The scenery was breathtaking on top of the mountains, and Jo made sure to educate you on local plants, animals and surroundings. And Rob made sure each driver was comfortable and enjoyed the full experience. Absolutely worth every penny! I would most definitely take the full day tour, just a few hours wouldn’t be enough!
Wife and I booked a mid-week 3 hour sunset tour. It was easy to reserve and they were responsive to my inquiries. My wife is very nervous so we choose the UTV instead of the ATV. She felt much more secure in riding in this machine. The meeting point was Sand Hollow State Park which was very convenient because we were staying in St. George. Our guide was Mitch. He was very good guide and very knowledgeable about the area. We stopped at multiple points for him to take our pictures at scenic views as well as stopping at points of interest. I would like to add that he was very concerned about your safety. I was very comfortable with the entire riding experience. I would highly recommend if you are in the area.
Ok, my wife and I were visiting from Kansas City when we saw the AJAT booth at the St. George Streetfest. We asked the team about the possibility of going out the next day. They were very accommodating and added a tour just for us. Thankfully for the AJAT team, a few others also wanted to go on a last minute tour. Our group ended up including three ATVs and two UTVs. Gary led us on a three hour Sunset tour and did a great job! The machines performed flawlessly and the sights were incredible.
My husband and I took the sunset tour and our tour guide was Rob. He was great!! He made sure that we were safe and he made stops along the way to inform us about what we were riding through and what was around us. We had a BLAST! It seemed that every turn we made, the scenery was changing. He let us stop at these beautiful view points, walk around and take pictures. 10/10 I recommend. Rob was so kind and fun and the tour was spectacular. We cannot wait to go back when we travel through Utah again.
We spent a week in Utah, and by far, this was the best thing we did on our trip! The 2 hour “teaser” is just that- I would highly recommend the 4 hour adventure because at the end of the 2 hour- we were NOT ready to leave! Exhilarating, exciting, most beautiful scenic view in all of Utah! If you are planning on being in Utah, plan on spending the money on this ATV Adventure! its well, well worth every penny!!
By far, the best thing we did on our week long trip to Utah! We did all sorts of things, horseback riding, hiking, Zion, Bryce Canyon, this by far was the most memorable moment! You wont regret it- it is freakin’ awesome!!
This was the highlight of our trip to St. George. Our whole family rode in one side-by-side atv and shared a great experience. The guide was awesome providing world-class service. He showed us a part of the world we would never have found otherwise. We also did the zip line which was the thrill of a lifetime!
It was fun, educational and just crazy enough to be a thrill, but feel very safe. Guide was knowledgeable about surroundings and catered to the needs of our group.
We did a 2-hour trip with ATV & Jeep Adventure Tours and really loved it! They’re right, 2 hours just isn’t enough. I’ve hiked all over Southern Utah and this was a fun, unique way of seeing the scenery.
Our group was pretty mixed, but the guide was attentive to everyone’s needs and really helped us to feel comfortable. After only a short time I felt at home on the four-wheeler.
The scenery is absolutely beautiful and the service is spectacular- I highly recommend!
I found this tour company on Trip Advisor, and so glad I did. This fun filled afternoon was the highlight of our trip to the Southern Utah area. Rob, our tour guide, was fantastic. As a beginner, Rob took the time to explain the technique’s necessary to ensure my safety, but also made the tour adventurous enough for my husband to truly enjoy the tour as well. Thanks ATV and Jeep Adventure Tours. I would take this trip again in a heart beat.
After countless road trips west, we finally did an ATV trail & sand-dune ride. WOW, whyyy did we wait? It totally rules and might be the best thing we’ve ever done out west (and we’re getting close to doing it all) We had originally booked a 3 hr morning tour but had to change days, and then the am tour wasn’t available the day we could go. And we’re soo glad it wasn’t!
We did the 3 hr ‘sunset tour’ with Brody and we lucked out, having him allll to ourselves 🙂 It was a blast! He was very thorough with instructions (our first time 😉 and then picked up the pace quite a bit when he realized we got it and were keeping up 😉 The area is drop dead gorgeous, stunning, and its amazing being in the red sand (like sugar) and among the cholla trees and cacti. Since riding with DH, i was able to tape some of the ride, when i wasn’t holding on for dear life! LOL j/k, there’s nothing dangerous at all!
Loved the heat, the sun setting on the distant mountains, and brody was right, it didn’t rain 😉 Brody rocks, and so does this tour. You gotta do it. We most definitely will again!
First of all let me say I have never been on a ATV. Secondly I NEVER feel compelled to write reviews. Finally, I am 60 years old and definitely not an outdoors man. Having said that this experience was unquestionably one of the most exciting and wonderful times I have had in years. My family of ten ranging in age from two 16 year old girls to my wife and myself went for a 4 hour ATV mountain excursion with this company. It was without a doubt the highlight of each of ours week long trip to Utah.
The guides, led by a great young man named Brodie, were spectacular in their desire to make sure we had the best experience possible. They trained us, they guided us through the most beautiful country and they helped us to have without question have the most exciting time.
Fun, exhilarating and truly over the top for sheer joy this trip is an absolute must. Our only regret was that we didn’t a) go for 6 or 8 hours and b) couldn’t go back the next day.
We’d never ridden an ATV before (sea-do, ski-do, yes). It was easy and great fun. Staff was friendly, helpful and efficient with their instructions before and during the tour/trip. The machines were all new, well maintained and clean. You ride about 1.5 miles on paved/gravel roads to get to the ATV area, then it is all sandy riding. Trails are well maintained, easy to drive with lots of scenic overlooks on the route, just enough climbing and descending hilly trails to excite but not overwhelm. The entire tour is about 12 miles of riding, about 2.5 hours total time on the machines (another 30 minutes at the beginning of the tour is spent on suiting up, helmet, gloves, glasses all provided, instruction on how to drive the machine and a few practice spins around the lot out back before heading out). Each machine has a carry box on the back, so bring your cameras – cold water is provided at all the stops, so don’t worry about getting thirsty or bringing your own. Would love to have spent longer time out on the trails, but that will have to wait for the next time, and yes would definitely pick this company for that opportunity (they also offer longer tours, but this one was perfect for an introduction).
Luckily we found this ATV & Jeep Co. on Tripadvisor and based on all the top reviews there we booked it. Having done ATV tours in Hawaii, Tahiti, Egypt, around Vegas, etc. we were hoping for a nice ride, but not expecting to be BLOWN AWAY like we were!
First off you have to realize that Sand Hollow State Park (40 min. drive from Zion National Park) is insanely beautiful and full of the rock formations you see around Zion plus it has lots of Sand Dunes! ATV & Jeep Co. Is super professional and has all new ATVs and gear which you can’t say about many ATV companies. Our guide, Mitch, is a super cool and friendly guide who while keeping everything safe gave us some freedom to blast around the dunes. This was the best ATV tour we’ve ever done and don’t miss doing this as a side trip after visiting Zion National Park.
From the directions to get there, to the quick ATV 101 and the entire tour, they could not have done a better job. John was so great, patient, kind and he made it fun. Rose even had spray bottles to keep everyone cool. The atv’s are top notch and accommodated novice to expert (different atv’s for different levels). I highly recommend this tour! Wear a tank top and sunglasses with lots of sunscreen and bring a long sleeve for when the sun starts to set. There are plenty of places John stopped to let us take pictures and hydrate, even got some snacks!
