BoardingPass7483442021-07-06The best jeep tour I've had! This was a wonderful outing and I highly recommend Sleeping Rainbow Adventures. My guide, Allison, was extremely informative about the geology and history of the park and the surrounding area. She really made the trip all the more enjoyable. She knew the back roads perfectly and handled our 4x4 with great skill. I had complete confidence in her. Plus, she is very cordial and relaxed. There was no sense of being rushed from one place to another. I'm a real shutterbug and I had plenty of time to take all the pictures I wanted to. Allison brought along a 'guide-in-training', Esther, who was great to have along as well and I'm sure she's going to be a wonderful guide as well.LWagBeth2021-07-02Cathedral Valley Jeep Tour Allison was so personable and a wealth of information. We really felt like we were experiencing part of the park that few people see.Tim B2021-07-01Amazing night sky! An amazing opportunity to learn and see the stars and planets in our solar system. Unparalleled. Best experience ever.Rebekah M2021-07-01Awesome Adventure Our family (two adults and two teens) had a fantastic time on our jeep tour of the Cathedral Valley with Andrew as our guide. We enjoyed seeing parts of Capitol Reef NP that were off the beaten path. It was clear that our guide enjoyed his role in teaching us about the different geological aspects of the park as well as other information about the area. We appreciated that there were times to get out and hike/walk through different areas to break up the time riding in the vehicle. Thank you for helping make this trip one of our best family vacations!!Lu G2021-06-30Great experience! My kids love the jeep tour! Thanks to the tour guide, Andrew, who is professional and fun! The tour length is right, not too long or too short. Based on our interests, Andrew customized the tour a little bit to see more different formations. Great experience!Annette F2021-06-26Excellent We went on the Cathedral Valley jeep tour and Mason was our guide. It was awesome! And Mason was wonderful. He knew everything. He was able to answer all of our questions. It was the perfect way to see Capitol Reef. We will be back for sure! And I would highly recommend Sleeping Rainbow Adventures.Rudolph S2021-06-23Jeep Sunset & Stargazing Tour My wife and I stayed at the Capital Reef Resort and booked a jeep sunset and stargazing excursion tour with Sleeping Rainbow Adventures and had an amazing time. Our guide Andrew was the man and he knew everything about the park. I put in my order late for the dinner option and they accommodated us by offering another menu. My wife and I truly enjoyed our time and would highly recommend this experience to everyone.Lynette G2021-06-22Amazing tour Andrew is professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable. Safety first- made sure we were buckled up each time we reentered the jeep and were doing OK when on our walks. We were very pleased with the tour, the information he shared, the great conversation, and highly recommend anyone coming to Capital Reef employ this tour service.Pointer2021-06-20Amazing trip to Mars and beyond Very patient with us with all the different plans we kept coming with. Were flexible but at the same time gave us their views on best destinations. Alison was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had an amazing time and will definitely reach out to them for our next trip. You will not find as many reviews for them as they are relatively new company, but don’t let that stop you from going with Sleeping Rainbow.RH B2021-06-17Perfect tour, tailored to my needs Andrew was great! We had a fabulous trip out to the Temples for sunset. He kept track of time so I had lots of time to photograph the Temples before the sun went down, and then we watched for desert animals on the way back. Lots of great information and delightful conversation made the tour really wonderful. Also--when booking the tour, Mason and Allison made sure that I was getting exactly the right tour for me. They even gave me advice on where to catch the Milky Way the night before the tour....good thing, too, because it clouded up the next night!

We can accommodate any levels of experience or mobility to give you a chance to see why we think so highly of Capitol Reef and Grand Staircase-Escalante.
While we can certainly take you to amazing, interesting places, we believe one thing that sets us apart is our ability to educate in an interesting matter as well. Sleeping Rainbow Adventures Owner Allison is a former National Park Service Park Ranger (including four years at Capitol Reef) and co-owner Mason was an interpretive intern at Capitol Reef before guiding in southern Utah the last five years. Both consider Capitol Reef National Park their favorite National Park – both for the scenic beauty and solitude, but also it’s fascinating blend of geology, archaeology, biology, and history.
