After pickup from downtown hotels, your Salt Lake City sightseeing tour starts with a visit to the State Capitol Building, followed by a stop at Old Deseret Village, aka Pioneer Village, and a chance to see part of the historical Mormon Trail.

Continue to Temple Square, where you can explore the gardens and enjoy a live recital in the Salt Lake Tabernacle, also known as the Mormon Tabernacle, famous for its organ—one of the largest in the world with 11,623 pipes—and for being the home of the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Next, head to the Lion House, the old pioneer home of Brigham Young, Utah’s first governor, the founder of Salt Lake City and a former leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This 1856 building is now a restaurant where you can enjoy lunch (own expense).

After lunch, pass by more Salt Lake City sights like Fort Douglas, the University of Utah, the Pony Express Monument, some of the city’s oldest mansions and churches, and sites from the 2002 Winter Olympics such as Olympic Legacy Plaza, Olympic Village, the Cauldron and Olympic Stadium.

Mostly great.. I’d recommend it

The tour guide Michael was great! Lots of great stories. Our only complaint is that it was not disclosed ahead of time that the Mormon Temple and Brigham Young house lunch were closed and removed from the tour. Those were the two things we most wanted to see. The other stops were wonderful, but the big two were missing.

The tour guide was great & very knowledgeable. I was disappointed we did not have a organ concert & the discribe stop for lunch did not happen.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
We are all disappointed that because of the Pandemic, the organ recital was canceled. We do tour the amazing Cathedral instead. (Substitute for Organ Recital) As explained, the lunch stop IS OPTIONAL. The usual restaurant is closed due the Pandemic. The guest all receive recommendations for the optional lunch stop. We are extremely sorry you didn't understand this. We try to make it as clear as possible to all the guests that pay attention.

Driver inattentive to attendees & Covid compliance

The tour was informative, with stops to get out to take photos, go inside temple grounds, a church, Pioneer museum & gift shop. The your guide did not pay attention to attendees, leaving a stop without someone once, & letting 2 strangers on once. Even though we signed an agreement to mask appropriately, not all riders wore masks or covered their nose. The driver was notified that noses weren't covered and did nothing about it.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
As of April 10th, beginning that very day, the Utah State laws governing masks was lifted. Not all visitors to Utah would have known about the lifting of the "Mask Mandate". One person was very late to get back on the bus at one of the stops, but no one was left behind. And 2 people were allowed to travel with the group to the next stop. They were not charged for this courtesy.
