Captain Valerie was funny and informative. Because it was winter we couldn’t swim or engage with the water but she still found plenty to tell us.

If you have a rental car, skip the tour take the trip yourself. I wanted to drive around more to see the lake from different angles. Felt a little let down by this tour.

Response from CitySightsUtah, General Manager at Guided Tour of Great Salt Lake from Salt Lake City
Responded 14 Feb 2020
Your guide informs everyone what to expect on the tour. There are only 4 roads that go to the lake and we take the one closest to the city. The other Lake access roads are 90 to 240 mile journeys. As you would find out, in order to see more of the 400 mile shore line from different angles it requires many hours or even days. It is simply not practical to do things like that on a 2-hour tour. You should call the company; explain your disappointment and they will refund you.

Very disappointed, guide did not stop at Saltaire on return from lake as advertised. There are also no stops on way to lake, while description mentions several stops on the way out. Save your money and take the short drive to the lake, park fee is very nominal.

Responded 03 Feb 2020
Jennifer, we are sorry you expected to stop at SaltAir pavillion. It is closed to visitor's. In our description of what to expect on this 2 hour tour, we do not advertise stopping there. You are always welcome to request a refund. We want to make sure you feel you were treated fairly. Please contact OUR office, NOT VIATOR. Remember: Viator is a seller of tickets; they do not necessarily fully represent our company and often they do not.

They were very accommodating. We wanted to go but there was only one spot left on the bus (we needed 2). So they changed out the bus for a bigger bus for us. We like guided tours because you’ll never hear many stories and info if you drive to places yourself

So glad I was able to go see this great natural site.Just a short drive and so worth it. Might suggest shoes that you don't mind getting a little damp, as we walked to the waters edge and felt the sand and salt in some of the natural occurring places around the lake. But those
