I am a 20 year old college student. I do triathlons and Spartan races. My family and I (we are ranged from age 20-60 all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels) canyoneered with Excursions of Escalante in August 2016. My boyfriend and I both said it was by far the coolest day of our lives! Rick and Charles emphasize safety and... More

This is the first review that I have done and our amazing canyoneering adventure at Excursions of Escalante inspired me to write one. Rick and Charles were our guides for a full day canyoneering tour in Escalante. Even though this was our second tour, it exceeded our expectations. We want to do guided tours for several reasons: 1) to have... More

Rick and Charles took good care of us on our day trip through a slot canyon! Rick has a passion for what he does and advocates safety at every educational moment. He decides on the canyon of the day based on the groups ability and the weather. We had clouds that morning so he chose a canyon that we could... More

Spent the day canyoneering with Rick and Charles who are both awesome. Rick advocates fun but safety above anything else. He was in the army & has search and rescue credentials. Super down to earth, friendly, easy going, doesn't rush things. Taught us different ways to climbs, walk, etc. He reads each group to see how experienced we are and... More

For those new or experienced with canyoneering, this is the place to be. Rick has a lot of experience with canyoneering which is evident in his simple approach to canyoneering techniques and knowledge about the local area.

Everything about the tour was wonderful. Rick is knowledgeable about both canyoneering practice and the local habitat. We learned quite a bit about the region's geology, flora, and fauna. What is more, he is funny and very personable. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed the trip. Thanks, everyone at EoE!

Entire experience was excellent, Rick , Shane , Kelleen and Amie were great! Went on a family vacation, adults, young adults and adolescents. Guides were very helpful and knowledgable. Terrain was challenging but do able. A great family experience! A great outdoor experience! Highly recommend. You will enjoy from start to finish.
