We went on a slot canyon hike with Aaron in July of 2011. It was during a three week trip in CO, NM, AZ and UT, and although we went to six National Parks and a lot of other great places, the hike with Aaron was the highlight of our trip. We had our three kids with us (7, 10... More

Our guide, Aaron, was fantastic. We chose the Zebra and Tunnel day hike and it was an amazing experience. With the recent rain, both Zebra and Tunnel slots were filled with water. Aaron guided, soothed, and encouraged each of us to go to the extent we were comfortable with in the Zebra canyon (tight fit!). The surroundings and colors were... More

Maybe some people think they can find these slot canyons on their own, we sure preferred to have a relaxed, knowledgeable, competent, and all around fun guide with us, to take us through Spooky and Peekaboo. Aaron, the main guy at Grand Staircase Adventure Guides just knew how to set the pace, make us all feel good about what we... More

Aaron was terrific. We went toDevil's Garden, Zebra Canyon and the Tunnel. Aaron was informative and patient with 2 first time slot canyon explorers. Zebra turned out to be just the right slot canyon for a first time especailly with someone who is a little nervous about tight spaces. I would go again with Aaron.

We can't wait until... More

Hiking Spooky and Peekaboo canyon with our kids was a real unique experience. Aaron understood to tailor the hike to the different needs. We will definitely come back some time and do some more challenging hikes. With his perfect knowledge of the area, we will choose Aarons company again!
