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.

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.

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.

Great tour but don't book it with Viator

The tour was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and truly concerned about giving us a memorable experience. I specifically asked the Viator rep. if we would be going into the Temple and Tabernacle and listen to the organ and Viator said we would BUT we couldn't, so Viator lied to us.

Absolutely fabulous tour of Salt Lake City. We have been on 10+ Viator tours all over the US and this was by far are favorite! Don’t know how we got so lucky because we are normally on a big bus, but this time it was a private van tour with just the 3 of us and our extremely knowledgeable driver. Said to say we talked with him for the entire 4+ hours and never got his name. He was a SLC native and knew so much history and current information about the city, the state of Utah and the relationship to the rest of the nation. He took us to the antique area of the city because we had mentioned that that was on our list of things we wanted to do. He suggested the Blue Lemon for lunch and the La Caille for dinner. We had a fabulous lunch at the Blue Lemon and will go to La Caille at a later time. He couldn’t have done any more than he did to make our tour any more special. I don’t know if the private tour was due to Covid, but I definitely will request that from now on. I wish that I could name him by name to get him some more accolades. Just extra special!!
