What our travelers are saying about their trips

Bucket list expectations exceeded!
4/16/2016 by first-time traveler Jenny
The beauty of traveling with a group is that the logistics of your trip are worked out for you: hotel stays, ground and air transportation, and daily tours. Traveling with Go Ahead Tours allows you to skip lines at the sites visited.
I cannot wait to see where GoAhead will lead me to next!
7/30/2018 by first-time traveler Wendy
All of the breakfasts were full meals, not just continental, and the provided dinners were three courses with beer and wine. The quality of the food was outstanding. This was a wonderful trip and I cannot wait to see where GoAhead will lead me to next, perhaps South America
So much with the group, as well as opportunities to tour on our own
7/27/2018 by first-time traveler Diane
Such a value! Every day offered us opportunities to see and do so much with the group, as well as opportunities to tour on our own. Each destination had a city tour with excellent professional, knowledgeable local guides who not only shared their passion for their city but also the cities history

What are Lake Powell’s top attractions?

With its remarkable geology, natural wonders, and opportunities for outdoor adventures, this manmade lake gives travelers plenty of reasons to visit. Here are some of the top attractions to take in while on a trip to Lake Powell:

  • Glen Canyon Dam. This massive concrete arch dam on the Colorado River forms Lake Powell. Visitors can take guided tours that provide insights into its engineering and the lake’s creation.
  • Antelope Canyon. Located near Page, Arizona, Antelope Canyon is a famous slot canyon known for its narrow passageways. Light beams illuminate its vibrant Navajo Sandstone walls, creating a beautiful view for photographers to capture.
  • Horseshoe Bend. Over millions of years, the Colorado River carved this deep, distinctively shaped canyon into the Arizona rock. The best time to visit Horseshoe Bend is early morning or late afternoon, when the sun is low in the sky and its colors are most dramatic.

When’s the best time of year to take a Lake Powell tour?

The best time of year to take a tour of Lake Powell depends on your preferences and the type of experience you’re seeking. Each season offers unique advantages and considerations:

  • Spring. Moderate temperatures and blooming greenery make spring a picturesque time to visit. It’s also an excellent time to hike the area’s slot canyons and try other outdoor activities.
  • Summer. Thanks to warm weather and extended daylight hours, summer is the peak tourist season—and a great time to go swimming, boating, and sunbathing.
  • Fall. Milder temperatures and smaller crowds make fall a popular time to visit Lake Powell. The weather is still warm during the day, but nights can get cooler, so bring layers for comfort.
  • Winter. For a quieter and more secluded experience, consider a guided tour to Lake Powell in the off-season. The winter months also offer some of the best views: The water is a clear blue and the surrounding cliffs are stunning.

What should I pack for a trip to Lake Powell?

When packing for a tour of Lake Powell, it’s important to consider the activities you’re planning for and the diverse weather conditions you might encounter. Here’s a comprehensive packing list to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable trip: 

  • Layered clothing. Pack lightweight, breathable clothing for hot weather during the summer months. Fleece or light jackets and a waterproof, breathable outer layer will keep you comfortable during cooler evenings and mornings (especially during fall and winter). Moisture-wicking, breathable underwear and socks are also recommended.
  • Swimwear. If taking a guided tour of Lake Powell in the warmer months, you’ll want to pack quick-drying swimwear for days on the water.
  • Footwear. Bring comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots for exploring trails and canyons, and sandals or water shoes for beach days. And don’t forget a pair of flip-flops to wear around your accommodations.
  • Sun protection. Bring high-SPF sunscreen and lip balm, sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts, and a wide-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the sun’s rays.
  • Rain gear. We recommend packing a lightweight rain jacket or poncho and a travel umbrella to stay dry during rainy periods. Waterproof, quick-drying hiking pants or shorts will serve you well, too.
  • Reusable water bottle. Bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. This will help reduce plastic waste and save money on bottled water.

Once you’ve reserved one of our Lake Powell tours, we’ll send you detailed information about what to bring. And don’t forget to download the free Go Ahead Tours app before you take off, so you’ll have all the info you need about your trip right in your pocket.
