Our group of 4 had a great day of learning and adventure in a beautiful canyon. Rick was a fabulous guide and gave everyone the confidence to have a great experience, we all learned a lot that will benefit future adventures. Highly recommend Excursions of Escalante and hope to have the opportunity to see Rick and Amie again.

Rick Green is a master guide. He quickly accesses your groups ability and delivers you an experience that provides a wonderful challenge while keeping safety as rule number one. Will use his services again!

If you spend much time in the desert, you likely know first hand that unexpected things can happen that affect your trip. Without getting into too much detail, Rick from Excursions of Escalante showed up JUST when I needed a helping-hand to avoid having my long-planned desert adventure ruined. While his experience and preparedness prevented a disaster, his kind and friendly demeanor kept me from being too hard on myself--"It happens," he said. While I hadn't planned on relying on Excursions of Escalante, I certainly will next time I head to Utah's Canyon Country. Thanks so much Rick (and Aimie), I am deeply grateful to you both!

This was the highlight of our trip to Southern Utah! Rick was a terrific guide and an even better teacher on how to have a great trip and stay safe. He and Amie were very knowledgeable about the area, plus they were incredibly kind, friendly, fun and generous with their time. I would highly recommend it for any age.

My husband and I have completed 3 outings now with Rick and Amie and their excellent team. We love their professional approach, with its emphasis on safety, but also the warmth and fun that they offer. Rick is patient and supportive with clients who have never been in a canyon. The sites we have explored are gorgeous and make for a memorable vacation.
