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. Of course, this trip is not bargain priced, but on the other hand, I did not want to put my greatest assets in the hand... More

Hello- Thank you for your wonderful review. We had a great time with your family- your daughter did great overcoming her fears and it was fun to see her turn into a canyon rockstar afterwards! Glad to hear your son got lots of great photos, we'd love to see some if you have a chance to send them our way.... More

We have always wanted to go to a real, non-tourist, slot canyon. We were attracted to Escalante for a second visit for this specific purpose. There are several slots you might get to yourself--Spooky, etc. But we went with Excursions for a more in-depth, private visit. Their waiver was a bit overwhelming, but they also do repelling, etc. so the... More

Hi - Thank you for taking the time to write your review about your Slot Canyon Hiking Tour. We appreciate your feedback! The canyons are like a giant jungle gym for the day and require "all hands on deck" so to speak :) . The roads to the canyons can be wash boarded depending on the weather we've had. All... More

The fact that you are out in the canyons repelling and hiking is just amazing in itself. Rick and his guides make you feel safe and comfortable. They also take the greatest care of you. If you want to go canyoneering and have no experience Rick can still make this trip fantastic. Anyone could go on this tour and have... More

Everything about this was an incredible day! The entire staff really focused on providing great service throughout. We saw amazing canyons that we simply wouldn't have seen without a professional guide. This really is a full day about experience, teamwork, and nature. We repelled down over a 100 feet into one of the slot canyons, and it is then just... More

When you think of "slot canyons", think escalante. And if you want to see them up close, be in them, rub yourself into the wall a bit, and feel cool and safe doing it, then go with Excursions of Escalante.. Between Zion and Bryce, we undoubtedly topped off our trip with a visit to Escalante. Rick, our guide, was incredibly... More

Slot canyoneering isn't to be missed and the only way to get the most out of the experience is with Escalante. The focus on fun and safety was matched only by the friendliness of the owner and staff.
