We used American West Scenic Adventures as a tour guide for the South Coyote Buttes hike. Jeff was absolutely amazing! From the initial phone call to the day of the hike, everything was great.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It….
Jeff was a great guide on our tour to the South Coyote Buttes! I’m one to do extensive research and look at reviews before booking and there is a reason he has all 5 stars, believe me you won’t be disappointed. My wife and I had the tour to ourselves so there weren’t 20 other people tagging along which made it a much more enjoyable experience.
