"I recently took a guided tour of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon with Discover America and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and provided us with a wealth of information about the history and geology of the area. The itinerary was well-planned and allowed us to see all the highlights of both parks in just a few days. The accommodations were comfortable and convenient, and the transportation was modern and well-maintained. I especially appreciated the small group size, which allowed us to get to know each other and ask questions of our guide. Overall, I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a memorable and informative tour of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon.
