at the very least this should be combined with an additional site the filth and order was so bad no one even tried going is water .Description on your website is totally misleading!

Sorry you are one of the few people that frowns on this part of the Earth's creation and marvel. You kinda missed the point of the whole tour. It is not the most beautiful lake in the World, that is for certain. Mother nature gets blamed for a lot of things that are not aesthetically pleasing to all humans. Everything described on the website is accurate and most people are fascinated to see things like the "dead sea of America". People go floating in the lake all the time. It just depends on how you look at Mother nature's creations.

Great tour guide. Just need a little more time

Michael was very entertaining & knowledgeable. Wish we had a little more time at the lake. It takes some time to walk down to the lake, float, walk back up & change. The shower is a bit far away from where the lake is. And there was no shower to be found. The bus was almost leaving. So if you plan to use this time to float in the lake as that's what the tour is for, then you have to make it super quick.

Great Excursion But Mask Aversion

Giving this tour a good review due to knowledge and friendliness of guide. Although I enjoyed this small group and van excursion, I felt uncomfortable and unsafe as my spouse and I were the only individuals who wore masks.

Thanks, we are glad you and all the others loved the tour. One person misread the tour itinerary and as a result didn't enjoy the tour as much as everyone else.

Best part was the Lake and walking in the water! The tour guide shared a lot of interesting information. The bus was comfortable and people friendly.

So glad you enjoyed the Great Salt Lake. Because it is desert all around, many guests are a little disappointed with dry beaches and lack of vegetation. But still, it is considered one of the World's natural wonders. Thanks for you comments.
