This was the perfect activity for an active family. It was just the five of us -- my husband, myself and our three young kids (ages 8, 7 and 5). We spent over 4 hours with our guide, going down into Yankee Doodle canyon, and back up again. Our guide, Eric, was efficient and knowledgeable, and great with the kids.... More

In a week where my family did a lot of really cool stuff (hiking The Wave, exploring Escalante, hiking Bryce and Zion), this was the consensus favorite. Eric is an outstanding guide - incredibly knowledgeable, made my kids feel safe about going over the edge, and super fun. What was a surprise to me too was that it's not just... More

Our family of four (kids aged 6 and 8) took a half day canyoneering trip with Red Desert Adventures during our Spring Break visit to Zion National Park. Several weeks later, we haven't stopped talking about how much fun it was. Eric was our guide and we couldn't recommend him more. We can't say enough good things about the trip,... More

During our Southwest Spring Break Trip, my wife and I wanted to introduce our 15 yr. old daughter to canyoneering. Turned out that this was the highlight of the trip - for her and us. Joe was at our pick-up point at the parking lot outside of Zion National Park 10 minutes early. He drove us about an hour to... More

I am in Utah visiting family and always wanted to climb here but never did. I contacted Red Desert Adventure and I am so glad I did. We went for the half day climbing and I had the BEST time ever. Eric took me to a fantastic place to climb and we got to try things I never did before.... More

After 30 years of mounteering I decided to splurge and hire a guide for my 60th b-day present to my self. I met Joe French at my hotel and off we went for a fun adventure, he picked a perfect canyoneering experience for my skill level. His rope system skills, friendly help along the way, and good natured story telling... More

We spent a half-day on a guided canyoneering trip. Eric picked up our family of four - our seven-year old boy and nine-year old girl, and us (in our very early 40s) at our hotel in Springdale around 9 am. After a short 20-25 minute drive up Kolob Terrace Road, we parked and hiked a short way to go canyoneering.... More

Took a half day canyoneering trip and decided to check out yankee doodle with our guide Eric. It was our first time in Zion and wanted to do something different. I'm nervous of heights so the repelling was a little scary at first but Eric made us feel extremely safe with his explanation of the harness and safety features. After... More

My wife and I went on the Slick Rock Hiking trip with Eric. Since we were interested in photography, Eric planned the hike a little later in the day to get better light. The area he took us to was beautiful and we had a fantastic time. He is very knowledgeable about Utah, the Springdale area, and the geology that... More
