We did a half-day canyoneering experience with Mark who was wonderful - knowledgeable, patient, and highly experienced with a broad age range (9-77 yo) and skill level in our group. He adapted his plan to us, challenging us just enough beyond our comfort zone. Mark...More

We had a fantastic time canyoneering with ZMS; our guide, Dion, was smart, kind and funny. By the end of the day, I felt comfortable zipping down cliffs. This was the highlight of our trip!

Bought a solo half day rock climbing trip. My guide Mark, was so encouraging and made a novice feel great. Beautiful country, am definitely planning to do again. Totally worth it. Staff also had great restaurant recommendations so we ate like kings.
