My day with excursions of Escalante was one if the best days I've ever had! They are incredibly professional and so good at what they do that you know you are in good hands immediately. Our guide, Jim, was patient, kind, and so knowlegeable. I can't wait to go on another adventure with Excursions of Escalante!

Rick and Amie were the best. They went well above and beyond our expectations. We had a great day canyoneering. Rick and Matt took their time and make sure everyone was safe 100% of the time. Will go again with them on my next stop out there. You wont be disappointed. Give them a try for sure.

I had a chance to take my married kids, along with the young adults and teen on a quick getaway and I wanted to fill their mind with visual images that that would never forget.
