Motor Coach Tours
Hundreds of motor coach tours visit Zion National Park every year. To insure a pleasant and safe visit motor coach companies, guides, and drivers, are asked to please be aware of the following information.
Commercial Road-based Tours
A commercial tour is defined as consisting of one or more persons traveling on an itinerary that has been packaged, priced, or sold for leisure or recreational purposes by an organization that realizes financial gain through the provision of the service. The entry fees of commercial tours are based upon the total capacity of vehicles that can carry seven or more passengers regardless of the actual number of passengers. Refer to the Commercial Tour Fee Rate Schedule to determine the fee for vehicles with a capacity of 6 or less. Possession of an annual or lifetime pass or the ages of the passengers does not affect the price charged.
How to Pay
When entering the park, at the South or East Entrance, please have your payment ready (see Commercial Tour Fees below). Credit Card payment is preferred; however, Zion National Park does accept cash and company checks. All checks must have the company’s Federal Tax ID printed on the check.
Any entry or reentry to Zion National Park requires a valid entrance pass or reentry sticker to be shown, including at the park's pedestrian entrance.
Commercial Tour Fees
$35.00+:1-6 Passengers ($35.00 + $20.00 per passenger not to exceed $70.00)
What Your Passengers Will Receive
Each couple/family/group will receive a park brochure with information on planning their visit and how to use the shuttle system. Encourage your passengers to read and take this helpful publication with them during their visit.
Only mini-buses and motor coaches (16+ seating capacity) that have advanced reservations at the Zion Lodge (dinning, overnight lodging, auditorium, or tram tour) may access the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Contact the Zion Lodge sales office by calling 435-772-7752 (weekdays) or 435-772-7700 (weekends) to inquire about reservations. This procedure allows the staff to serve you better.
