She loved camping under the stars, making S’mores by the camp fire, meeting a really great bunch of people who really included her, and walking the Narrows at Zion. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to enjoy each park. They’re pretty awesome cooks too! I would recommend this trip to anyone!! It has to be done!!

Hope to see you both somewhere down the road.
Absolutely loved this experience with our tour operators, Eric and Nick who despite Covid outbreak made the trip safe and wonderful!
The rental cars offered during this time was useful... read more as did not need to use masks while driving to spots.
Eric was knowledgeable with lots of information at various sites.
Trip was well planned considering going to 5 National parks in 5 days!
Hotels were awesome at Red Cliffs lodge near Moab and Majestic in Springdale but could be better than the Best Western Ruby Inn in Bryce!
Would certainly love to return back with Mountainbased in the future
Had an incredible trip visiting 5 national parks in 5 days. My guides, Nick and Jared, were great and well prepared for the trip. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
We just got back from the Mighty Five Camping trip - we will never forget it! The @Mountainbased guides were phenomenal, funny, skilled and paid attention to every detail! This... read more is the only way to do the Mighty Five! They have carefully selected which hikes to do; where to camp; prepare all the food and drive you where you need to go!
We are definitely going to sign up for a trip next summer. By the way - these guys did a great job keeping everyone safe and "distanced" during these crazy CoVid days. Huge kudos to our favorite guides: Justin and Nick 🙂
Traveling with Mountain Based was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Nick was so genuine, so knowledgeable, and so much fun. Our group laughed and had experiences... read more that created friendships that will last a lifetime.
Campfire stories, road trip talks, ‘album cover’ photos, and all the sammies (sandwichs) are memories I will carry with me.
Take a trip with Mountain Based. You won’t regret it.
