We had a fantastic experience from the minute I booked until the minute we returned from our canyoneering adventure. The trip was tailored to meet our needs, and I can't believe how much we were able to see and do in the four hours: scrambling, bridging, parkour, and repelling. Our guide Marie was knowledgeable in so many areas, from the... More

Nate took us out and the whole trip was amazing. He told us all about the important of staying on trails in order to preserve this beautiful area for years to come. He was a very good guide. He was patient and encouraging the whole way through. I have a fear of heights but Nate walked me through everything so... More

My family and I went on a half-day excursion with Moab Desert Adventures, and it was definitely an adventure! Although my husband, daughter (22), son (21) and I love the outdoors, we had never experienced canyoneering before. Entrajo Canyon is a stunningly-beautiful yet fairly secluded spot where we could experience the canyons in an up-close-and-personal way. Our trip to Entrajo... More

Matt was fantastic at guiding our family (2 adults, 15 year old, 12 year old twins) through the canyons. We felt completely safe with him as our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the canyon, types of rocks, rock formations, and survivor skills. He went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable. We called him our... More

My fiancé and I had an amazing time with Moab Desert Adventures. Scheduling with Nate was a breeze and he provided information on all that we would need to bring the day of the climb. We were scheduled on Friday, but due to rain, we were forced to reschedule our trip twice. Nate was extremely easy to communicate with and... More

Money well spent for a day that was truly priceless. Nate was super helpful on the phone and our guide, Jay, was knowledgeable, reassuring and extremely helpful with my two children. We chose the Entrajo Canyon and I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a unique experience. We'll never forget the memories made out on the rocks that... More

My wife and I did two tours spanning two days with MDA. Our guide was Marie and we were the only people in our group which made it a real personal experience. On one of our tours we didn't see another people the whole day. On the other day we were finishing up and saw another group. The other group... More

Our guide, Jay, was the best! My son (13 yrs) had a blast, and learned so much. I am terrified of heights, but I am so glad I stuck with this excursion! We definitely had to push ourselves to get through. Worth every penny!

Unbelievable guide in Jay Anderson. My first time ever in climbing gear as well as my wife and niece and nephew. Jay kept everyone safe and it was easy to trust his recommendations. Everything about our experience was top shelf. I would highly recommend Jay and Moab Desert Adventures.
