🏁 Tour Itinerary: US National Parks Mini Explorer 3 Days

Day 1: Zion National Park and Bryce National Parks

Cut by the Virgin River, Zion Canyon is an impressive mix of white, pink, and red Navajo sandstone cliffs. Ancient petrified sand dunes towering over 2000 feet above the canyon floor make for an impressive landscape and a photographer’s paradise. Zion National Park offers enchanting walks & hikes for every fitness level. Stroll around the Emerald Pools trail, enjoy the Temple of Sinawava, the Great White Throne, Weeping Rock and visit the interpretive Human History museum where you can enjoy an entertaining rangers talk on the patio.
After a full afternoon in Zion we head to Bryce Canyon, A giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos. These red, orange, and white spires provide spectacular views for park visitors. Bryce Canyon is considered by many to be the most scenically diverse place in the world.

    The tour is very organized, but I did not like that guide was complaining about how much he hates camping every chance he get and that he would choose lodging anytime over camping and wish there were cabins at the campsite on the second night and says he doesn’t think anybody slept well when it wasn’t even that cold that night and I surely slept well. I mean this is a camping trip right? It’s really a mood killer for someone who likes camping to go on a camping trip and get a guide that complains and makes jokes about camping all the time. Other than that the trip was great

    5 STARS! I had an incredible time on the 3 day southwest tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, the camping gear was super clean, the itinerary was jam-packed with epic excursions and at the end of the trip I found myself wishing I had booked the 7 day trip! Can’t thank our guide Joe enough and the entire Bindlestiff team for putting together such a great trip, even during the pandemic times! All the minor adjustments to adapt for closures were great. Zero complaints. Will definitely travel with Bindlestiff again!

    “Wonderful 3 day national parks tour from Las Vegas – excellent value, highly recommend “”We wanted to book the 7 day national parks tour and it was full, so we booked the 3 day tour instead and it was fantastic from start to finish. The itinerary is packed, make no mistake about that, but Bindlestiff know about tours and what works. There was never a dull moment and we traveled with two other families and a couple, 13 of us in all, lovely people from around the world. Our guide was Brad, a 40 something well travelled, quirky, funny, friendly guy who knows his stuff and shares as much or as little as you want. He has great life stories to share too. The route was well planned, the locations, stops and everything were excellent. All the recommended walks/ trail routes were perfect. Our routing was scenic throughout, departing from Las Vegas to Zion (via Glen Canyon/Dam), Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley and Grand Canyon, also stopping along Route 66. We added on the optional Antelope Canyon which was mesmerising, plus a 25 minute helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, which was fabulous. The vehicle, tents, sleeping bags and equipment were in excellent condition. The tents were new and easy to put up/pack up. Sleeping bags / sleep sheets were spotlessly clean and in excellent condition. Very clean hot shower and toilet/washing facilities. Camping locations were perfect (the second night with a clear view of Monument Valley for sunset and sunrise). The trip stops were all amazing and wonderful each in their own way and its not possible to say one is better than the other! We highly recommend this trip, Bindlestiff Tours and Brad. We are also going on the 3 day Yosemite tour from San Francisco and will review that.”””
