Our most popular multi day tour is a tour from Salt Lake City to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Arches National Park, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon and Zion National Park, finishing in Las Vegas.   If you prefer it, you could instead take a similar tour that starts in Las Vegas, and ends in Salt Lake.  One of our Yellowstone tours will start the day after you get to Salt Lake. 

Bundu Bashers also offers a variety of other Monument Valley tours, from Las Vegas.  They include:

Two day Monument Valley tours that also visit Antelope Canyon and the Grand Canyon

Shared Tour From Salt Lake City to Arches National Park, Moab, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Las Vegas

Day Route Distance
& Time
Pre tour

Not applicable


You'll need to arrive in Salt Lake City the day before, as our tour leaves Park City at about 7.30 a.m., and departs Salt Lake City at about 8.15 a.m.  Park City, home to many of the events in the 2002 Olympic Games, is a picturesque, historic little resort town, situated high up in the Wasatch Mountains, and is a much nicer place to stay than Salt Lake.  We are based in Park City, and can use our contacts to get you a much better deal at a Park City hotel than you would get in Salt Lake.  In addition, our shuttle division, Park City Shuttle, will provide you a half price shuttle from the Salt Lake airport. 

If you stay in Park City, after your arrival you can spend the rest of your day exploring historic Main Street, or Old Town, or the Olympic Park. 

If you've just finished one of our Yellowstone tours, we'll pick you up at your Park City hotel, on the way out of town.


Salt Lake City to Arches National Park

Route Map

235 miles
(376 km)

4 1/4 hours

Depart Park City at about 7.30 a.m., and Salt Lake at about 8.15 a.m.  Travel to Arches National Park.


Arches National Park



Rest of the day

We'll arrive at Arches at about midday.  Arches National Park has the highest concentration of natural arches in the world.  It is home to well over 2000 sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations.  The incredible features of the park, including balanced rocks, spires, fins and pinnacles, are highlighted by a striking environment of contrasting colors, landforms and textures.

Our trip starts at the Visitors' Center with a briefing from a ranger, to prepare you for the Fiery Furnace.  The hike is only about two miles long, but it will take approximately three hours, as you clamber up and down rocks, and through narrow slot canyons.  A ranger leads the tour, as it is too easy to get lost in the Furnace if you go on your own. We may have a sack lunch in the Fiery Furnace, failing which we'll eat it after the hike.  You don't have to do the Fiery Furnace tour if you don't want to, and our guide can drop you elsewhere in Arches for that time, if you choose. 

There are numerous other arches, spires and fins to see, and, depending on time constraints, we'll take in a selection of the Windows arches, Double Arch, Landscape Arch, Double O Arch and Skyline Arch.  The second highlight of the day is a hike up to the top of the Delicate Arch.  Delicate Arch is the most famous arch in the world, and Utah's state symbol.   At three miles round trip, this is not a particularly long hike, but it may not be for everyone.  There is a vertical altitude gain of 500 feet over the slickrock for which the area is famous, and it may be hot, but the view at the top makes up for the effort to get there. You are welcome to sit out the hike if you choose.

After an enjoyable stay in one of the world's most unique area, it's time to go to Moab.

One Arches to Moab 5 miles
(8 km)

15 minutes

Travel to Moab, Utah's outdoor capital.  Check into your hotel, perhaps have a quick stroll through the streets, and then meet the rest of the group at a local pizzeria for an all you can eat pizza buffet, which is included in the tour price (drinks are excluded). Spend the night in Moab.


Two Moab to Colorado River Half day

Today is a day that is full of action, with the first activity being river rafting.   The rafting company will take you to the mighty Colorado River, close to Moab.  Assuming that it is not too deep into the summer, and the water has not subsided too much, you'll get to shoot some rapids in the company of experienced river guides.  If you do not go rafting, you'll get a refund which may vary depending on the number of people in the group and the time of year.  If you're a biking nut, the world's most famous mountain bike trail, the Slickrock Trail, is in Moab, and we'd be happy to take you there instead.  You can rent a bike and we will give you a refund for the rafting.

We'll have a sack lunch before leaving Moab, or on the road out of town. 


Moab to Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

Route Map

155 miles

248 kilometres

2 3/4 hours

Travel to Monument Valley
Two Monument Valley Not applicable

Monument Valley is not really a valley, but a relatively flat plain, surrounded by red cliffs.  Buttes, sandstone formations and remnants of ancient volcanoes rise from the surface, creating a flashback to visions of the Old West. In fact, many western movies were made here. 

You'll take an off road tour in a specially converted pick up truck, driven by a Navajo guide. Amongst the sites you generally see are Anasazi ruins, petroglyphs, movie locations and 1000 feet high monoliths. 

Either on the way in or out, we'll stop at some small roadside stores, where you will have the opportunity to purchase Navajo fry bread, Navajo tacos and native Americans souvenirs.

Travel from Monument Valley to Page, the little town right next to Lake Powell.
Two Page Not applicable Spend the night in Page.  You're on your own for a (late) dinner.
Three Page to Antelope Canyon and return to Page About 2 hours This morning you're going to visit one of the most fascinating areas you will ever see.  Antelope Canyon is one of those places that adorns the wall of photo galleries around America.  The combination of light filtering down into the canyon, the textured curved sandstone walls and constantly changing shadows and patterns combine to create an unforgettable experience. 


Three Page to Wahweap Marina 10 miles

16 kilometres

20 minutes

Travel to Wahweap Marina on Lake Powell
Three Lake Powell 2 to 3 hours Take a cruise on Lake Powell, through the canyons and rocks that were submerged when Glen Canyon was flooded.  The exact cruise that will be taken will depend on the water level and the time of the year, but is likely to be the Antelope Canyon cruise.


Three Lake Powell to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon

Route Map

122 miles

195 kilometres

2 1/2 hours

Travel to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  You're on your own for dinner.  Spend the night.  Note that if reservations are made late it may not be possible to obtain lodging at the North Rim.  If that is the case, we'll stay at Marble Canyon and travel to the Grand Canyon in the morning. 

Four North Rim Half day

This morning we're going for a half day mule ride down into the Grand Canyon.  You will descend 2300 vertical feet into the Grand Canyon, to the Supai Tunnel.  Please note that if you weigh more than 200 pounds, or cannot speak, or understand instructions in, English, the mule company will not allow you on the trip.  If you do not go on the mule ride, you'll get a refund which may vary depending on the number of people in the group and the time of year.


Four Mule ride pick up point to Cape Royal and Angel's Window 3 hours Travel to what we believe is the most spectacular view at the top of either rim, Cape Royal and Angel's Window.  We'll have a picnic there (with supplies purchased yesterday in Page).

Route Map

159 miles

255 kilometres

3 1/4 hours

Depart the Grand Canyon, and travel through the Kaibab National Forest on our way to the small town of Kanab, on the border between Arizona and Utah.  We'll stop for a little while to look at the town and do some shopping.  From Kanab we'll head north on a very scenic Utah back road, to Bryce Canyon.

Four Bryce Canyon Not applicable Our aim is to get to Bryce in time for the nightly rodeo.  The rodeo runs every night from the end of May through the middle of September, excluding Sunday nights. 


Four Bryce Canyon Not applicable Spend the night outside Bryce.
Five Bryce Canyon Half day Spend most of the morning exploring Bryce.  Depending on your energy level, you can might like to take a hike down below the rim, with a vertical descent (and subsequent ascent!) of almost 600 feet, along the 1 1/2 mile Queen's Garden Trail.  The rim trail from Sunrise to Sunset Point is a pleasant stroll for those who want something a little more leisurely.  Other areas we will visit include Inspiration Point and Bryce Point.


Five Bryce Canyon to Zion National Park

Route Map

81 miles

130 kilometres

3 hours

Travel to Zion, which we'll enter at the less frequently seen east entrance.  We'll travel through the park, stopping to enjoy the scenery, before going through a spectacular tunnel that has been blasted through the Navajo sandstone.  After riding down the switchback road to the bottom of Zion, we'll stop at the Great Arch of Zion, and then travel to the Visitor's Center area.
