Like many others, Eric is a wonderful guide. He loves the FF and is very passionate about the beauty and uniqueness. He shared a lot about the foliage, rock formations (and camera tips) but was mostly a kind person who helped us, 61 and 70 navigate this amazing place. He offered a hand so we could step to the next... More

Eric is an awesome guide. His deep knowledge and passion brings Moab and Arches to life. The canyoneering excursion was filled with unexpected fun and adventure. Our hike through Fiery Furnace was incredibly interesting because of Eric's knowledge. We are a family of five (2 in college and one HS senior) and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our tours....

It was our first canyoneering and enjoyed it so much! Eric was super nice and really kowledgeable about rock climbing and Moab region. He explained a lot of things about the geology, history etc. and was also really good at taking pictures of us! After a short hike up to a canyon we started to cross natural pools. The water... More

After getting a quick introduction to rappeling in Kanab the day before, all I could think about was doing it again. As soon as we got to Moab I gave Eric a call and he arranged to let me get in on a half-day canyoneering gig he was doing the next day. What a hoot! We did a short hike... More

THANK YOU FOR ACCOMMODATING US!! WE LOVED IT!! Eric was the best tour guide I've ever had. He is very knowledgeable and kept us entertained the whole way. He loves what he does and it shows.

Eric took my husband and myself through the amazing Fiery Furnace. He knew all about the geology and the way to go through to get the best experience. He gave me tips on how to make the best photos. Eric made fun pictures of us which he emailed to us the afternoon after our hike. We were well informed by... More

We did the Fiery Furnace with Eric about a month ago. I have a 12 and 16 yr old, so this was perfect for them. Eric did a great job, talking about the area/park/etc. He took some great pictures and sent them to us. Great job by him. Next time we have to set it up a bit and take... More

This was my second trip with Eric. We climbed Ancient Art last year and it was such a great experience - that I came back this year to climb Castleton Tower. Eric is my favorite person to climb with - he is knowledgeable about the area and terrain - and is so encouraging throughout the climb. He is keenly focused... More

Did the Ancient Art climb with Eric. Started early (6am) to beat the heat and 'crowds' which was a great idea. After a 30 minute drive while the sun came up, we arrived at the parking lot at 6.30am and, after the short and stunning hike in, were first at the base of the climb. Eric was absolutely awesome throughout...... More

Climb on Wayne! Eric was a professional, safe, and engaging climbing guide who clearly knew what he was doing. He was easy for our group to get along with, and was very good at guiding and encouraging the timid in our group without being pushy, whilst also satisfying those who wanted to take on more risk. He was also punctual... More
