Bottled water (plastic), cameras and PLENTY of memory and good batteries. We do provide a cooler with ice and bottled water to minimize what you need to bring.
Can we bring lunch and eat it in the jeep?
To insure the pristine preservation of the National Monument, food and drink, other than a water bottle, are not allowed on our tours; however, you may bring small snacks for young children.
The exception is our Jeep/Water Hike tour which we provide sandwiches from our local deli, chips, snacks, drinks.
Are smoking or alcoholic beverages allowed?
Smoking and alcoholic beverages are not allowed during tours. We operate primarily on protected U.S. Park Service Lands and are very aware of our responsibility to protect our custodianship of these beautiful surroundings for generations to come and request cooperation and assistance from our customers in preserving our scenic back country.
How many people can go in one jeep?
Our Jeeps are the newest 4-door Wrangler models that seat up to 4 plus the guide.
Will there be other people on the jeep with my family?
Our normal party is either a couple or small family. We do allow two couples to share a Jeep.
What if I have a passenger who is pregnant or has a back problem or other injury?
We offer tours along mostly paved and gentle off road trails that may be suited for such clients. We require a signed acknowledgement of risk from those who have serious back or neck problems, other injuries, or who are pregnant.
Is there a minimum age for children?
Yes, the minimum age is one year. Children under 18 years old must have an adult with them on the Tour. You would be required to bring the child's car seat.
What is the temperature in the month that we are visiting?
It’s cool to sometimes cold in the winter. In the summer, dress in light layers and you’ll enjoy the primarily cool to balmy and sometimes comfortably warm weather in our open air vehicles. The fresh outdoor air breezes are wonderful to take in any time of the year.
What happens if it rains?
The showers in our area are usually very brief, but we do carry rain ponchos in the jeeps. If it becomes too wet, we reserve the right to reschedule your Tour.
During Summer months the Escalante area is known for powerful monsoon storms which may cause our tours to run morning only during these periods. In the Winter, we run any time of day.
Are there restrooms on the Trails?
No, we will be in the National Park. We suggest you use the restroom just before leaving, and our guides are here to please if we need to accommodate someone’s needs.
What is the standard tip for our tour guide?
The customary 15% to 20% is fine, but it is entirely up to you. Our guides are here for your pleasure as their first and foremost priority and it’s up to you any additional gratuity you feel is appropriate.
Will we walk much on our tour?
You will have the opportunity to get out of the Jeep to stretch, explore and take great photos! Most tours have minimal walking. We do have tours with actual hiking if that is your interest, so let us know. The complete descriptions on each tour page will tell you all about what each tour offers.
The exceptions are our combo Jeep/Hike tour that includes a 1.5 mile hike along a flat creek bed in a slot canyon or our Mountain Top/Picnic Tour which includes 1.5 - 2 hours out of the Jeep exploring the rock formations and mountain top.
Are Jeep Lake Powell Tours safe?
Yes! We have a flawless safety record, with top notch jeeps well maintained by excellent mechanics who keep our Jeeps in top shape.
