“Gorge-ous with Chuck; highlight of the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

My boyfriend and I spent the day with Chuck on the Gorge-ous canyoneering tour. WOW. It was the highlight of our trip. My frugal partner was initially a little hesitant about the cost, but boy is he ever glad we did it!

Truly, the cost is worthwhile when you consider the transportation, the food, the gear, and the incredible experience you have. By day's end, Chuck felt like a buddy more than a tour guide. He was engaging, funny, and a wealth of information. He was able to point out all the different sorts of plants, had great stories about the desert and the characters who live in it.

Most importantly, Chuck seemed to tailor the trip just to us. He could see that we were up for a bit of a challenge and gave us options on how to approach various climbs, rappels, etc. I love that it wasn't a "one size fits all" tour.

The tour was just the right amount of challenge for a reasonably fit person. We climbed rocks, we made our way over water (some of us more successfully than others), we rappelled, we hiked up, down and sideways. It was fabulous!

The car ride home saw us both nodding a bit, totally tired but blissfully happy. This tour is something we'll always remember. Many, many thanks to Chuck for a once-in-a-lfetime experience.

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your adventure with us! Your kind words will certainly make it to Chuck!

If you can pull it off, you might want to consider our Canyon Bonanza trip - two days of camping & canyons!

Thanks again!

“Slippery When Wet excursion was awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Our family very much enjoyed our day canyoneering with Eric and Christian. We had never been rappelling and easily learned how to do it. This is a strenuous day and not for the faint at heart. We would highly recommend taking this trip if you are looking for something out of the box.

“Slippery When Wet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Best day in Arizona! This tour is awesome! If you love adventure and want to do something out of the box on vacation, then you have to sign up to go canyoneering. Although a little pricy, it's worth closing your eyes and signing on the dotted line. You'll go hiking, swimming, climbing/hugging/stretching over rocks, and rappelling! It's a great day of fun!

“WOW – What an incredible experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I worked with Chuck and Bruce to set up an “Epic Adventure Getaway” for a marketing program we ran in the May issue of Outside Magazine. From start to finish, they were extremely accommodating, creating a custom itinerary for our needs. We had originally planned to go canyoneering, but when the canyon flooded due to intense rain the week before, they came up with an amazing Plan B of hiking, scrambling, and rappelling through South Mountain. It was just what we were looking for on our epic getaway! Chuck was really great with teaching everyone how to rappel and made them all feel comfortable as they inched over a 40-foot cliff, legs dangling in the air, as they lowered slowly to the ground. We felt completely taken care of from the beginning. Not only did they meet our every need, but they went beyond our expectations while working with our film crew, writer, and photographer to ensure that we could document our incredible adventure. They also worked with one of their partners to set up our hot air balloon activity for Day 2. When an impending storm ruined our plans that morning, Bruce saved the day by booking a private horseback riding tour for us. By the time we had finished breakfast, everything was set up at Western Destinations, including a horseback ride, BBQ lunch, and games at a life-size Old West town that the ranch owners built. We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend thanks to 360 Adventures. The level of service we got from Bruce and Chuck was outstanding. After our experience, we would gladly recommend 360 Adventures to anyone!

“Intro to Rock Climbing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Signed my 15-year old son and 17-year old daughter up for intro rock climbing lessons. They had a great time and still talk about it. No experience at all but they were doing short rappels right away and spend time crack-climbing as well out near Pinnacle Peak. Ask for Eric for your guide - experienced, patient, knowledgable and safe. Would do it again with him in a minute.
