Tour guide was great. Lots of interesting facts. Lake was quite the disappointment. While it was beautiful, it smelled horrible and the flies were horrible. Nobody would get in that water.
Nice view of a gross beach

Despite us having to change busses at the beginning if the tour, the bus ride was nice. The view of the lake is also nice. The driver forewarned us about dead brine shrimp on the beach that caused an odor, but didn't tell us about the gazillion flies at the beach. The closer you get to the water, the more there are. I had every intention of getting in the water and floating. After being met with a hundred flies in my face, I didn't even make it close to the water. I was totally disgusted and just wanted to get back to the room to shower and wash my hair. I snapped a few pictures and went back to the small visitor's center to watch their film. No one on my tour actually got in the lake to float, but a couple put their feet in.
Recommend seeing.

The history of the great salt lake before we arrived at the site was most interesting. The site itself was a natural beauty.

Your comments are appreciated. It is a natural wonder, we are glad you enjoyed it. Desert lakes are not for everyone.

The Great Float on Salt Lake!!

Valerie was excellent. I was disappointed that I could float but not walk on the water, lol! I wish we would have had more time to here the videos in the Gift Shop! Mary O from KY!

Easy going guide. She wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. Lots of time at the lake, Great experience!

Thanks. The Great Salt Lake Tour Adventure goes into the desert to explore a well-known lake, but not many tourists venture out into the desert to visit. It's history and importance cannot be overstated. It is "desert beauty", an inland sea, and a remnant lake due to thousands of years of nature untouched.
Quality time in the salt lake
, Aug 2020
This tour was fantastic mainly due to Michael our guide. He was immensely knowledgeable about many different aspects of the history of SLC. He allowed us to remain at the lake as long as we needed and was a genuine pleasure. If I could rate the tour higher than 5 stars I would. Beyond well done!

The guide was very enthusiastic about the lake and its surrounding areas. For a short quick review of the lake and the habitat is was good.

Hey there, thanks for the review. We know that this one-of-a-kind DESSERT LAKE doesn't dazzle everyone's imagination, but it is certainly an unusual landmark in the West!
Wonderful, Knowledgable Tour!

Valerie is an absolute gem of a tour guide! She is incredibly knowledgable, professional, and fosters a fun, friendly environment among all the tour attendees. Thank you for sharing your passion, knowledge about the salt lake and beyond, and thoughtfully answering everyone's questions.
