I did a 5 hour tour and it was fantastic. Breathtaking views of the amazingly diverse mountain formations, especially in the afternoon when the light is best to see the colours. I wouldn't want to visit at the height of summer though...It was already pretty...More

An amazing road trip exploring the ancient rock formations. This is a must see if you're in the area. It's possible by bike but much better in a tour with a driver so you can really spend time exploring the different sites.
