Our guide Ryan was great, he took us safely through all the drops and explained the history and importance of the area. Great fun and the highlight of our trip, would do it again if time permitted.

Great company, supply all your needs (even giving us thermals and a jumper) and make you feel comfortable and safe. I have used these guys previously and sought them out again this year because I loved the experience.

My partner and I went on the Juggler Canyon trip in June and LOVED it. We were lucky as we were the only two booked but I think at most its 4 per guide. Of corse we weren't properly kitted out (only having carry on bags here), but the gave us thermals, water proof jacket and pants and a fleece... More

Thanks for your review Jo. Lucky you to just have the two of you on the trip. You're right that most of our canyon trips are 1 guide to 4 participants (and never more than 2 guides with 10 people). And our goals is that you just need to bring yourself, so even if you don't have the right shoes,... More

We have just returned from our adventure in the Grand Canyon. We started off the morning by meeting Greg our guide at the blue mountains backpackers on Bathurst road. He gave us a run down of the day and asked us about our experience. We had all done some abseiling before and 2 of us had done empress canyon. The... More

Thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review of your day with RDMH, it's always a pleasure to hear stories of awesome days out in the Blue Mountains canyons. Grand Canyon is certainly spectacular with its tall, sheer walls and dark pools, and Greg is an excellent guide. I'm glad to hear that his patience and knowledge... More

What an amazing way to end the year! Excellent practice abseiling in the morning (3m, 15m then 30m), lunch, then absolutely amazing canyoning and 30m abseil down stunning Empress Falls waterfall. Definitely exceeded all my expectations. Will return for more in the future! Thank you Charles and Tom! :)

It's always great to hear that our customers have had an amazing experience. An abseiling and Empress Canyon combo trip is a sure way to have serious fun in the Blue Mountains. Abseiling down the Empress Falls offers a thrilling finale to an amazing canyon. If you're looking for that next adventure, try Serendipity Canyon. It's a full day out... More

We booked the Empress Falls full-day abseiling/canyoning trip with RDMH, but a different tour provider (High 'n' Wild, I think) ended up leading the trip. Overall, there was just too much overhead in the day and not enough actual activity. The abseiling training in the morning was good, but it was a long drive to get there, and a long... More

As a first timer to canyoning I didn't know what to expect so picked the beginners Fortress creek canyoning tour. The experience blew my mind! I loved everything about it! A whole day out in the blue mountains, scrambling through areas of the bush I would never have otherwise been able to access. Started with an enjoyable bush walk through... More

Fantastic adventure canyoning trip (sheep dip & rocky creek canyons). Stunning scenery, full day of diving, swimming, climbing, scrambling! Cannot recommended the experience or tour company enough.

Having just returned from an amazing vacation in the Blue Mountains, I can honestly say that the highlight was a day trek with the RDMH team. From start to finish Keira and her team looked after us wholeheartedly. The booking process was easy and hassle-free, even to the extent of warning us a couple of days before arriving that "we...
