Salt Lake is a lot like the dead sea
Aug 2021
The major bummer is the drought. Other than to be able to say I saw it, I don't recommend this trip. The guide did everything she could possibly done to make the trip interesting, so there is absolutely no faulting how she did.

We saw people actually float in the water, because they said you cannot sink because the lake is at least 13% salt. The ocean she says is only 3% salt. The north side of the lake which we did not see is supposed to be 27% salt.

The Great Salt Lake, although not so great here, is 75 miles x 40 miles, and thus the largest salt lake on earth. The dead sea was something like 30 X 40 miles I think she said.

There are only these little brine shrimp about a half inch long. There are some birds but no fish other than that.

Sorry you didn't like the lake. It is not for everyone as you testify. Others view the lake as one of the wonders of Earth's formation. Their opinions are on the opposite end of the spectrum. As you know, 'the ancients' have said: "It's all in the eye and mind of the beholder".

Don’t book this tour of the Great Salt Lake
Aug 2021 • Couples
The tickets we bought said that the itinerary included an hour at the Great Salt Lake, and an hour at Great Salt Lake Park. Instead we got a very interesting guide that took us straight to the lake and then back to where we were picked up for the tour. Not sure this is worth the money. If the tour guide shared some descent history or included a pass by of the church and the capital building that would of increased my stars to 3.

The tour did the same route and time as always. Sorry that you misread the itinerary. The lake tour is only about the lake. The City Tour is another tour.

Great and ignore the bugs and smell
Once you step over the edge you won’t see bugs or smell anything. Really cool once in a lifetime experience floating in the Great Salt Lake.Recommend wearing rubber shoes. Crocs or water shoes that I bought for 10 bucks at Target worked well. Not only for the lake but for the walk up to the showers.

I’d recommend renting a car and spending just a few minutes at the very hot and stinky Great Salt Lake. Tour guide was nice. I do not recommend this experience.

The Lake is a Natural Wonder. It is made by Mother Nature. It is like the Dead Sea. People like to see it because it is pristine and different. Sometimes different has its own intrigue. Most people understand that

Jul 2021 • Family
I read all the reviews prior to booking this trip. Absolutely true - we would not have seen so many places without this tour! Our guide Winn was excellent, funny, and told us about what we were seeing as we passed by - would never have seen the capitol and so many sights without this tour. Perfect amount of time at each destination. Great experience! My husband, 13 year old son and 11 year old daughter all really enjoyed the variety and experiences as well!

Ride to the Lake
Jun 2021
We took the Secrets of the Great Salt Lake tour. Our driver was knowledgeable and kind and we had a pleasant experience. Basically this was a ride our to the State Marina on the lake and there was an hour to go though the very small visitor center and go in the lake. Really all of the information that our driver gave us on the way out was in the visitor center. So if you have a way to get to the lake I would go to the visitor center and spend as much time as you would like. If you are not to go into the lake (which is most people) then an hour is a long time out there.

Thank you for your great review. Although the Great Salt Lake is not one of the most beautiful lakes in America, it is probably one of the most unusual and historical treasure of the West.
