We had a hard time choosing between the half day ephedra canyoneering trip or the chamisa trip and are so glad we went with the Chamisa. The trip was really fun and interactive. We went soon after a rainfall in early august and the canyons were full of water - lots of fun to swim and wade through. We definitely... More

We did the hypatia trip with Mia in late July and it was INCREDIBLE. I can't stress enough how outstanding she was as a guide. None of us had ever rappelled before, so we didn't really know what we were getting into, but Mia's competence and confidence put us all at ease as we boldly bounced down the sides of... More

One of the top 2 hikes out of all the hikes we did in 5 different national parks. Guide was knowledgeable & personable. Tailored the trip to our family challenging us just enough but always keeping safety in mind. Easy to miss the small office as you drive by but highly recommend.

We just finished the Ephedra's grotto with Jerome as our guide and he was great! We even had a lady who was very scared of almost everything we were about to do almost to the point it was annoying. But he was so patient and understanding. He was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. The staff here is great... More

Our family of four took the half-day trip to Ephedra's Grotto with Dustin and Brett as our guides. While Moab is full of climbers and guides, Brett and Dustin are the guys you want in charge of the ropes when your kids lean backwards off a 100ft sheer rock face and are dangling above the canyon floor below. The trip... More

My husband and I booked an all day climbing adventure in Moab. We were fairly experienced climbers, although with different abilities and used to the rocks of the northeast. Our guide, Riley, was truly excellent and showed us the techniques applicable to climbing sandstone slabs. The climbs were well thought out and gave us both a challenging, but doable, variety....

My wife and I recently did a 1/2 day trip with Cliffs and Canyons. We did the Ephedra's Grotto/Morning Glory Arch rappels. It was beyond words. We had never rappelled before. Our guides were Dustin and Jerome. These guys were energetic, enthusiastic, informative and most importantly for me...hilarious!! Great sense of humor. Made trip so much more fun. They were... More

My boyfriend and I, both 25 yo, had tons of fun on this 3/4 day trip! Our guide, Evan, helped us choose the Little Sinbad Canyon adventure and we loved it! Evan was a fantastic guide; he was informative, provided lots of encouragement, taught us new skills, and made sure we were always having fun, but at the same time... More

Our Canyoneering experience was a great start to our vacation in Utah. Our guides, Riley and John, were very nice and were good with all the ages of our group. They were very patient with the scaredy-cat adults and were great with the kids. The rappels were scary enough for the experienced and first timers alike. The hike back was... More
