On a week long tour of Utah Excursions of Escalante was the highlight of our trip. We spent all day at Egypt 1, butt-scooting through canyons and repelling down drops. Great trip with an awesome leader!

Rick and Jim provided great guiding and instruction to take canyoneering skills to the next level. All this with a focus on safety and good backcountry ethics.

This was such a great trip!! I was nervous at first but both Rick and Jim did a great job of making me feel at ease, they not only show you amazing scenery that not everyone gets to see, but they teach you so much about canyoneering! One of the best experiences ever!! Thank you Rick, Aimee, Jim and Katie!!!... More

I was really surprised with the landscape of our adventure and had no clue Escalante had so many canyons for Canyoneering activities of so many levels. The service was fantastic and 5 star deserving!

Hi Bruno- Thank you for your review! Escalante really is the hidden gem for desert slot canyoneering. We have the highest concentration of slot canyons in the world here in Southern Utah! Hopefully you can make it back down someday and we can show you some more canyons. We had a fun day with you. All the best and have... More

Rather than saying take an excursion with Excursions of Escalante if you are in the area, I would recommend making this the purpose of your visit. We (family of four; 16 year old girl and 12 year old boy), spent a day canyoneering with Rick. At all stages Rick and his team were very thorough, professional and focused on our... More

Hi Malcom- Your review put the biggest smile on our faces! Thank you so much. We think the canyons should be the purpose of an Escalante trip too- we have the best slot canyons in the world! Glad to hear your kids had a blast. Kids do so well in the canyons, and maintaining challenge while managing for safety is... More

We very much enjoyed the canyon tour lead by Rick and Jim. Both of our kids said it was the most enjoyable day of the whole trip. We wish we had allocated a few more days to explore more canyons with Rick and Jim. My daughter even asked whether we could go back next year to do it again on... More

We loved our three days of canyoneering with Rick. Rick and Jim (and Katie) took us to different canyons each day. The thing about the guides is that they make you feel safe. No matter what we did, I always felt like they had my back (or bottom or leg). They know what they are doing and it makes the... More
